- The Universal Bank funds the KIRL Facility, paving the way for MonoCorp to build the facility. The CEO of MonoCorp, Richard Bane is quoted as saying, "This will open a new world of study to mankind, we will discover the principles that will turn men into godlike beings."
- The Church of Hara, a little known sect of an even more obscure Neptunian church, protests the "abhorrent science experiments" at KIRL, not to mention the "blasphemous" words of Richard Bane.
- Conspiracy theorists say that most of the security staff for KIRL were members of a secret organization called the Knights, but this is probably just a coincidence because the actual security company used was called Night's Security Force.
- The KIRL was created and sold to the public as a "compact but efficient nuclear electron accelerator"
- In truth, some say that the KIRL was an experimental dimensional portal generator
