Enies Lobby, known as The Judicial Island (司法の島, Shihō no Shima), is a government-controlled stronghold in the Grand Line together with the Marine Headquarters and Impel Down. Enies Lobby is located on an island referred to as both an "afternoon island" (昼島, hiru-jima) and a "never-night island" (不夜島, fuya-jima). Enies Lobby leads to Impel Down and the Marine HQ directly. Because of this, there are many Government Agents stationed here, roughly 10,000 men, a mix of those from both the World Government and the Marines. The island also has a courthouse, which makes it easy to transfer high-level criminals through Enies Lobby and directly into Impel Down, or to the Marine HQ. Due to recent events, the island has been completely annihilated and left in ruins due to the effects of a Buster Call.
 The Judicial Island
Enies Lobby has extremely strange oddities that many islands are not known to have. Among them is a large waterfall under the island, leading to nowhere except a huge black void, although there is water down there. For some reason a large amount of land, as well as the buildings on it, "float" over this void only connected to the rest of the island by a small "bridge" of land. It is never night-time on the island, even during large storms, such as Aqua Laguna, there is still sun shining upon the island. There are also many whirlpools behind the island, and a giant gate, the Gate of Justice, which only ever opens a little bit to let criminals through, and when opened stops the whirlpools because of the tides.
 Main Gate
This is the gate closest to the Sea Train. It allows access to the Main Island Gate.
 Main Island Gate
Directly behind the Main Gate, the Main Island Gate offers access to the main part of the island. Once past the Main Gate you are in the area over The Waterfall, and into the central part of the island.
Enies Lobby has a large courthouse, whose judge is the 3-headed giant Judge Baskerville. He is actually three different people who each have disproportioned limbs. They each call themselves a different name, such as Baskerville Left, Baskerville Right, and the middle one usually calls himself "Princess" but picks different names occasionally. The court is supposed to be fair, but Baskerville's three heads, each representing a different favored ruling, skews the favor. Baskerville Left usually wants to be considerate and let people off the hook easy, while Baskerville Right often wants to instantly give a hard penalty. The center Baskerville, however, although claiming to be in the middle of the two extremes, usually wants things such as a Death Sentence, causing the other two to bonk him on the head and remind him he is supposed to be the perfectly fair one. The Jury consists of criminals that have already been given sentences. No one can be tried and be found Not Guilty, because the Jury only wants to bring more people to Impel Down to suffer the same fate as they have. Tom was the only one known to have been able to come close to avoiding this, because of his work on the Sea Train. However, due to Spandam's meddling, Tom was killed.

 CP9 Headquarters, the Tower of Justice
The CP9 headquarters, the Tower of Justice (司法の塔, Shihō no Tō), resides on Enies Lobby across the Drawbridge. It consists of a large tower, with the words "Enies Lobby" proudly displayed on it, and it is the tallest structure in Enies Lobby. It is known to have many floors, although how many is unclear, as only the floor of the Director, Spandam, and some of the agents' rooms are shown. Generally the CP9 will just lounge around when not on missions.
This is the place where the fights between the Straw Hat Pirates and CP9 took place. It contains many different rooms and secret passages. During the Enies Lobby arc it took a lot of damage, first being sliced in half by Kaku's Rankyaku 'Amane Dachi'. The top half of the tower continued to slide off whenever powerful attacks were being used, such as Luffy's Gear Third attack, until finally, during the fight of Luffy vs. Lucci, the Buster Call attack hit it. Other examples of the destruction of the tower are the holes in the walls caused by Franky and Fukurou's brawl, and Nami's fight with Kalifa. Lots of interior damage is caused by Sanji's battle with Jyabura especially because of his Diable Jambe Flambage Shot. But the biggest damage was caused by Chopper's Monster Point rampage. It is currently destroyed, along with the rest of Enies Lobby.
 Underground Passage
An underground tunnel leading from the basement of the Tower of Justice to the Bridge of Hesitation. The entire passage leads under the water.
 The Bridge of Hesitation
The Bridge of Hesitation (ためらいの橋, Tamerai no Hashi) is a large, two-sectioned draw-bridge. The first section leads from an underground passage to the Gate of Justice, while the second goes through the Gate.
The Bridge of Hesitation is the last stop for a criminal before the Gates of Justice. This was called the Bridge of Hesitation because once the prisoner is lead here they are so fearful of what will happen to them that they hesitate and run the opposite way but are stopped by the Marine guards. Once the criminal leaves this point, there is no going back for them and their fate is sealed. They are then taken by ship to either Marine headquarters or Impel Down. These places give no chance of escape and the prisoner usually dies at the location. Recently, a majority of this was destroyed.
 The Gate of Justice
The Gate of Justice (正義の門, Seigi no Mon) is a large gate mysteriously built into nothing but air. It serves as a direct gateway to both the Marine Headquarters and Impel Down. It is located at the end of the Bridge of Hesitation, and once a criminal passes through it, they have no more hope of ever escaping. The door never opens fully before the Straw Hat Pirates' attack.
The architecture of Enies Lobby is like no other, and stands out. This is normal for islands in the One Piece world, especially in the Grand Line.
 Main Island
The architecture of the town in the center part of the island, in the center of the black void and the waterfall, contains rather boring brown buildings that appear to be made of clay or another such similar material. Each one appears to be unique, and some are taller than others.
 CP9 Headquarters and the Judicial Buildings
Each of these buildings have the most well-known architecture in Enies Lobby. They are large white marble buildings, with what seem to be jade green squares on the sides, surrounded by thin gold lines. The green is also on the top of the buildings, such as the Courthouse.
- Further information: CP9
The CP9 are the most secretive of the Cipher Pol units; only the Government and high-level Marines are supposed to know about their existence. They each are masters of rokushiki, a style of martial arts which requires years of physical training to be able to use. Their headquarters is located in Enies Lobby.
