Nirsk is a village in Arstotzka. It is never visited or seen in the game but is talked about on a few occasions. The inspector was born and raised in Nirsk, as was Sergiu,[1] and it is implied that the inspector only left Nirsk after being assigned to the checkpoint.[2] According to an elderly woman encountered on day 19, the inspector's parents still live in Nirsk but have not heard from him for a while. The inspector never seems homesick for Nirsk, and jokes that it is a "shit-hole" when reminiscing with Sergiu.[1]

Inspector's entire family or some family members may be sent back to Nirsk[2] or return there voluntarily,[3] depending on the ending.
