Because...your utterly hilarious metaphor to Moria had an utterly priceless mineral to mine. I'm just saying. It might have been a worthwhile economic investment.
Well.... Since you asked...
The premise for it was for a Fantasy setting involving two primary individuals... Basically, the two have access to a Knowledge bank of advanced information, and are slowly using it to push the local civilization to a more advanced state. The anonymity of the facility is desired as they don't exactly want the rest of the "World" or near by powerful Kingdoms finding out where al the nifty ideas about, medicine, metallurgy, printing presses, chemistry, etc is coming from. SO the community is more like a think tank, with the "town" as an anonymous front for distributing various ideas as well las trading resources.
Finances are pretty much self sustaining due to the creation of new business. I mean, shoot, owning the first Printing Press on the planet by itself is enough to start a finical empire. Things like selling better manufactured goods is enough to make a tidy profit.
