Welcome to the final Expo update. I have just some general info on Bangorai. Read what you like and enjoy the teasers.
Bangorai' is a newly developing nation is Southeast Asia. As with most nations in that area, it is a country of contrasts. There are the very rich and very poor. There are gleaming skyscrapers and sprawling rice patties. I will try and cover some basics about Bangorai'.
Health: Health in most parts of cities is very good. The sultan has made this a large priority, by building many large medical centers in downtown areas. However, in the far reaching rural areas, and poor areas of cities (especially around polluted parts) health problems can get out of hands. Slowly, but surely problems are being taken care of with a new program to build small clinics in farming communities.
Safety: Crime is a sensitive subject. It is absolutely uncontrollable, especially in the crowded slum areas- of which there are many. Drugs, sex trade, and others abound in these areas. Recently, crime in rural areas has also seen an increase. The military is trying to get involved to help out police and other officials. However, for the average tourist or citizen, it is perfectly safe, as most of the crimes take place in deep corners of the city, and to those who don't have any street smart.
Education: Bangorai' is very proud of it's education. Due to British and American control in its history, structure on education has a good foundation. There are many educational facilities through high school. The construction of colleges and universities is relatively new, but in the larger cities, facilities are already in place.
Economy: Economy in Bangorai' is based upon several different fields. Among the most adamant are: Banking, Commerce, Tourism, Manufacturing, Rice, and Oil. Jobs for the population is not a major problem, most everyone can find some way to get money. However due to this fact, many unqualified individuals are getting jobs and some businesses are suffering from it.
A major environmental issue that Bangorai' has is water pollution. With every major city being on water and having a port, things have gotten really messy over the years. Sadly, nothing much is being done about it. THere have been rumors of stricter laws in the distant future, but things are bleak. One major thing that is being done to cut energy costs and other things, is the construction of a dam across the Kapuas River. It is still on the drawing board, and studies are being done to see how it would effect the environment and agriculture. With this major dam, power would be supplied to the whole Kapuas River and delta along with several other places.
Another issue being confronted (besides the ones in my second post) is the rate of development in different areas. The capital is the most developed city in Bangorai, but others (including major ones) are lacking. It isn't a major issue, because the whole country is doing well (despite being in hard economic times). However, the capital is slowly getting more and more crowded, as you may notice by comparing pictures, and so something needs to be done in the future, but no one really knows what.
First, I have been working on the national airline.
Here is where we are going to visit next:
And now something big. I have been working on this for a long time- and there is a long way to go still.
Kapuas River Delta is a dense area of rice fields, towns, oil fields, and canals. BTW: this is an old picture.
