Paradise Island is MezaCorp's latest foray into providing a beautiful location for working, living, and vacationing. It has enough hotels to fulfill the needs of its nearly 1 million residents with a little extra holiday production to provide vacations to a couple of its middle-class workers in other cities. MezaCorp has built Isla Zocorro for the sole purpose of being a high end eco-tourist vacation island (that makes enough food to export to Paradise Island). Paradise Island specializes in vacation tourism and entertainment tourism. It has a little bit of cultural tourism as well but there are limited cultural buildings available for MezaCorp's construction company.
Paradise Island is currently MezaCorp's largest city (it used to have one with over 1 million but it collapsed under its own weight and mysteriously disappeared shortly afterwards, no one talks about it) but traffic is surprisingly manageable without need for mass-transit because of the distribution of employers and workers and the fact that most roads are expressways or 3-lane each direction avenues with trees in the middle.
The main source of income in this Island is from its offices with some money made from high tech and taxes though its tax rate is kept low. The city has a wide range of businesses including dirty industry near the ports but it must still import heavy industry and manufacturing industry tokens from MezaCorp Industries, a polluted metropolis with traffic problems and from MezaCorp's loathsome competitor, OmniCorp. CEO Marco Meza has some deep-seated contempt with OmniCorp's CEO Don Maddalff.
Here is a series of pictures taken from the same location at different times of the day:

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.
