The Housing Story of Cannasera
After the second World War, many of the Tigerians were still living in suburbs and villages where infrastructure, power, water, sanitation were not properly built and planned. Thus diseases and illnesses were common for Tigeria. In the 1950s, the "Baby Boom" sent Tigeria into a turmoil. The birth rate increased from 4 per family to a staggering of 6 per family. Housing became an immediate problem to be resolved. Urban expansions also meant that the suburbs, villages and slums had to be removed, yet provide the residents proper housing.
The Ministry of Housing was then established with an aim to provide housing to the many Tigerians that was to be affected in the redevelopment of Tigeria. Cannasera was the state that needed most help as it was one of the larger states and most populated states of Tigeria. Selbring was Cannasera's main city for development.

Roads, bus services, subways and elevated rail (Mass Rapid System), expressways were built in Selbring to provide basic infrastructure for the residential estates. Drainage, Power, Water infrastructures were also invested to allow every resident to have access to electricity, gas and water at any time of the day without disruption.
By the 1970s, almost every Tigerian in Tigeria had a roof over their heads, a place to call their home.
