Haven (later New Prentisstown) is another settlement on New World, which we don't know about at the beginning of the trilogy, which makes it out to seem as though Prentisstown is the only settlement on New World. However, Haven is the largest settlement on the planet. Later on Mayor Prentiss took over and became president of Haven and renamed it New Prentisstown. He made it the capital of New World and wanted to prepare it for the new settler ships to arrive. New Prentisstown is where the Ask and the Answer fight and where the war in Monsters of Men takes place.
