A lot of traffic's been devoted to topology, but this might be better
implemented as a terrain type (infinite void -- 0,0,0 -- no units can move
onto it).  That would allow for very interesting shapes, all within the
existing topology.  

It would be especially easy to just run a verticle bar at the edge of the
world, but you could almost as easily cut off vast stretches of ocean or
irrelevant land.
