The first update is here!
Clairiston is an island city that has a focus on tourism and hightech industry.
It started out as a small trading port in the mediteranian sea used by the romans but was abandoned when the roman empire fell.
the population fell to 1000 people and by the 20th century there were only 500 people.
Then it was rediscovered by the AMERICANS! during world war 2 and made into a modern american style city over the course of 50 years.
The citizens of the city refuse to import any food because of tradition so the city will eventually max out in population because there will be no more land for farming.
In 1999 the city decided to close down every factory to keep the island clean for tourism. This then caused huge riots and there were many casualties. The city still has no factories and the largest employers are high tech industries. because of the lack of factory jobs many lower class citizens have left the city.
The city has only 10% lower class and has to import all manufactured goods and heavy industrial goods. This has had a huge impact on the trade and commerce in the city causing it to no longer be self sustaining as it was.
Many call it rich mans paradise.

The only large four way interchange in the city is located south of downtown in the mountainside neighborhood.
Downtown clairiston is quite dense and if it were to receive a highway going through it had to be multiple layers.

I will no longer be hosting XLNation as of March 1, 2017. Skullz613 will be taking the reigns of the site in early 2017 and XLNation will be moving to a new web hosting service. During that transition there will be an interruption in service of up to two weeks. Skullz613 is now a full administrator of XLNation. Be kind to him.
