Catalina Island in "Getting Real"[]

Catalina Island along with the rest of the California Channel Islands were ceded to China a generation before the war of 2117 when the United States found it couldn't pay outstanding debts. Third Minister Hu Zhiaoxing resided in the town of Avalon on the island during the war and imposed the peace terms there when the U.S. lost.
