    Hi folks!

    I present you the capital city of the country, where all my cities are located. The city isn't finished yet.

    South Point is the capital city of the Northern Union Republic (N.U.R.). It's a town with ~330,000 inhabitants. As a capital, of course, it's very safe, clean and liveable. Mayor of the city is William Lloyd GREEN. The city itself may not be that attractive for tourists, only a few sights are located here. South Point also can't compete with the enormous economic power of Bay City for example, but indeed the capital is one of the most important cities in the world (only my world :D). Many far-reaching political decisions have been made here by the government.
    The current Prime Minister is Cristin HIGGINS-COYNER, Conservative Federal Party (CFP).

    History
    After independence of the Northern Union Republic in 1873 the government of Prime Minister Carl HARETHOW thought about moving the capital from coastal Bay City more inland for better protection reasons. The political situation was unstable after the years of phosphate war, he feared further aggression against the new country, especially the coast. In that case he wanted to make sure to have a safe capital and a stable seat of government. Harethow found supporters in the policy for the plans soon.

    He choose South Point, his birthplace, a small town with 6,000 inhabitants to be the new capital. Interior areas weren't well developed at that time. To connect the city to the populous, industrially high developed areas of the country he prescribed the construction of new railway lines and highways.

    1900 the city already had a population of 50,000, 1930 110,000 and 1950 250,000. Due to the discovery of oil in 1956 the construction of the Refinery South Point began. Today oil industry is the biggest employer of the area.

    The City

    The International Airport South Point - Miralton is the gate to the capital city. It's not the biggest one. There are about 17,000,000 passengers each year. The construction of the second runway was controversial. On the one hand the adjacent ground properties of the farmers were bought too cheap, on the other hand the runway reaches close to the residential area. The citizens sometimes protested violently, their land price fell. In Addition it was very expensive, because the hilly area had to be terraformed first.
    Former mayor Peter SAMPSON resigned.

    But it was necessary and the only joice for the city council instead of building a new airport.

    The most inhabitants of South Point are living in the suburbs of the city. Land prices are overall very high.

    Actually South Point has no metropolitan area, there is a rural landscape instead. Many industrial suppliers are located around the town.

    Hey Inan, your city is amazing. You always put a lot of effort in your parks and decoration. I like Independence park and the street with all the trees around the park. Your airport is really big and theres enough space for landing. Your suburbs look nice and I think your inhabitants love to live there due to the nice houes and lots of grass and trees in this area. The university and the campus is nice as well and I would love to go to this university :-)

    Nice city, congrats. I appreciate so much your city hall, airport and your university. Can you tell me how you did to pass the higway under the airport without create a tunnel? How did you to put the red trees in the city hall and another buildings closer? And what buildings use you in your university? Thanks and Great work!!!!!!!

      Thank you! The Miralton Tunnel was a bit tricky, i just built some elevated streets (no bridges) above the highway and filled up the grass and concrete areas above the highway by keeping pressed Shift+Arrow Up. That gives the illusion of tunneling the runways. For the mods you are asking for i'll have to take a look. I'm going to tell you later (Or meanwhile you can ask in the forums). Thanks for reviewing :-)
