Well, One Piece is almost into the New World, which got me thinking. For such a dangerous sea, there sure were a lot of civilians there. But now, with the new world being so much more dangerous, it leads me to think that we're going to stop seeing civilians populating islands, and almost all remnants of society such as law and such will be gone (save the marines, who aren't much trouble since they just try to keep the balance). What do people think the loss of civilians would do to the series as a whole?
