Far Beyond the Reach of Earth
Firewall (and popular rumor) hold that there are at least one, and likely 2 or more, unregistered aerostats. They are most likely criminal enterprises, hidden below 45 km altitude in the dense sulfur clouds, and avoiding sensor detection due to the frequent lightning discharges and high pressures and temperatures at that level. Presumably, egocasting is the prime means of access, with other supplies delivered via “lost”, hacked, or hijacked freighters, or supplied via illicit surface mining.
