- Side of planet closest to sun would be great for solar, agriculture.
- Equator would be great for retail, recreation - constant sunset makes everything look beautiful.
- Just further than the equator might be an idea place for housing - it's always dark, but short commute to light.
- Further away from the equator would be cold, which could be useful for heavy industry (particularly exothermic processes)
I wonder how a society's 'clock' would work without the day/night cycle. Would people coalesce around a certain common "day" cycle or would everyone be on different schedules so society operates in shifts?
Going away from the center, properties would get cheaper due to harsher conditions, the poorest of people living in increasingly hotter and colder conditions. But they would also live closer to the factories that lie toward the poles of the planet, making for faster commutes.
Somewhere in the very hottest and coldest extremes, would be a good place to keep prisons.
I wonder how much benefit, if any, data centers get from operating in colder regions.
