     Rather than have bureaucracy disillusion him, just have it fortuitously
place him in the LNHQ.

     "Hello, I would like to open a restaurant in this city.  I was informed
that I needed the permission of the local elders."
     "Ah, yes.  That.  I am still learning your language."
     "Well, you did manage to find the correct office, which indicates good
luck or perseverence.  What sort of restaurant would this be?"
     "I am the Sous-Chef Supreme, disciple of the Chef of Iron in the
Mountain Fastness of Sugary-La.  It is my sacred charge to spread the
blessings of our mystic cuisine to the world at large."
     (Bureaucrat closes the window with restaurant permits, opens a new one.)
"Ah, yes, a standard Utopian Emissary business plan.  We get those
occasionally, although I'd admit this is the first time it's taken the form
of a restaurant.  Due to certain recent, ah, explosions, there's only one
part of the city zoned for the sort of business you propose.  On the up side,
the rent is free and you'll be serving a rather high-profile clientele...."

     Dave Van Domelen, figures that while we may not see them in the LNH
much, Netropolis gets a steady trickle of immigrants from hidden utopias.
