List Office is the central labor office of Vault City.

Background

Employing a majority of the City's population and giving them something to do: Making and remaking lists ad nauseam.[1][2][3] It is also the hub of all administrative work in the city, keeping track of the City's status,[4] managing and routing supplies for its various departments, doing a decent job... If it has a good day. On a bad day, critical requisitions can be delayed and come in well after they are actually needed.[5]

Staff working in the office consider it a boring, thankless job.[6] The fact that it's practically a dumping ground for people whose positions are rendered obsolete by the City's increased automation and digitization doesn't help.[7]

    Kohl: "{168}{}{They are discussing putting information terminals in every household. These new terminals would all be tied to the List Server and the Information Archives. Once that is done, the information center... and I... will be unnecessary. It's all for the best, really.}"
