    San Pedro de Árbolés is the largest city of Marramar. It is located right below the equator in southwestern part of the country. It is one of the oldest cities on Alpha Centauri (excluding the ones in The Federation) ,founded during the colonization. It is the southernmost city of the continent, and one of the only ones in the Southern Hemisphere of Alpha Centauri. The city is mainly of industrial/residential character and is a strategical and important seaport.

    The city was founded during the 2nd colonization of Alpha Centauri (2014). Its strategical postition in the delta of Rio Blanco immediatly made it one of the most important industrial seaports on Alpha Centari. Currently the city contributes largely to Marramars GDP and is mainly focused on industry. It is also an oil refining facility and the HQ of Aitortilla01 logistics and Petromar, Marramars national oil company. The farming is mainly for local consumption and the exports of it make roughly 5% of profits. While being a very wealthy city, it has lately began to have problems with wealth distribution.

    Being the largest city of Marramar, it also makes SPda one of its major cultural centres - it is the location of Catedral de amarilla (yellow cathedral), an important religious building. Also, many important buildings are located here - the University of phillosophy, Technical institute and more. It is often referred to as the "capital of the South". Every year, during the National day a big fair is held in the city. Despite being an important cultural centre, it lacks some infrastructure what is planned to be build next round.

    The city is very multicultural, what the numbers can only prove:
    Ethnic groups
    Spanish - 45%
    Portugese - 31%
    English/American - 11%
    Russian - 9%
    Slovak - 4%

    Religion
    Catholic christianty - 35%
    Protestantism - 31%
    No religion/not religious - 12%
    Judaism - 8%
    Other (islam, buddhism, baha'i) - 4%

    Drecapulco Island... its sun, its beaches... Along with two other sites, this island was chosen as one of the three starting point for the Marramar EP because of a very comfortable tropical tropical climate that allows almost everything to grow... and this during all year long. You don't have heard of the Marramian Pineapple yet? That's normal you can find it on earth only within the most secret black markets. But it's told its very juicy and has that little mysterious spice, which makes you wanna eat more.

    Drecapulco is set to be a farming/ resort island, allowing all people of Marramar to enjoy a long sunny rest in between two hard working sessions in SPdA factories or in the booming institutional & research pole Azucena.

    Oh, I like that kind of presentation and also that kind
    of style you guys chose for your cities!
    Well done! Anyone has already shown his or her outstanding
    ability to construct a realistic looking city within this game, but I have to say that Peter's recent effort really pays off!
