Romagna Bay

Sign in to follow this  


Welcome Back!!! Today, we explore the city of Romagna Bay, located in the northern portion of the country. Its unique location near the border with France heavily influences the feel of the city, and attracts many tourists from Paris as it has stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea.


Here is the famous ship wreck of an Italian shipping company from over 50 years ago. Back then, the city was hardly a spec on the map, and the bay was deceivingly shallow. Although there were several ship wrecks here before, the outrage pouring from this one led to the blowout of the sea floor by the Republic (As well as economic opportunity, seen later)


Here is a view of the vibrant downtown. Its food and nightlife are heavily influenced by neighboring France, as many Parisians come to get away for a week or French businesses decide to hold large conferences here.


The Bay area, including surrounding unincorporated areas, has a quite healthy population. Although it is not as large as the capital, San Courbevailles, and most certainly does not have the population of Santa Isabel, it is currently the fastest growing city in the country


As mentioned before, the Republic, while peaceful, holds a large military presence in the region, although no one is certain why. Odett Island is one of the major military bases in northern portion of the country. Recently, in a rare leak from an official from the Republic, it was revealed that the island has a significant underground ballistic missile facility, designed especially to elude satellite imagery, radar, and sonar detection systems. The majority of the missiles can reach as far at Calcutta India, although it is rumored to have a few in stock that can reach the U.S. or China. The official, by the way, was allowed to keep his seat until heavy criticism from the public forced him to resign his position. The government here is highly trusted, and its citizens like to know that there are secrets that the rest of the world does not need to know.


Here is the result of the blown out bay....the magnificent port of Romagna Bay. This is now a deep water "free zone" port. What this means is that countries within Europe without a deep water port or significant access to a shipping route overseas will utilize this port for all of their import/export needs. All of the goodies that enter the port are then shipped to the interior countries via rail. This has allowed for an extreme economic boost in industry here, as many countries like the U.S., China, India, and African oil producing nations are choosing to use this port when exporting to Europe.


Thank you for viewing, please PLEASE rate, leave comment/criticism!!

Your city is very colorful, and the waterfront has some interesting lines. Perhaps I'll have to go look at some earlier updates now :) .
