Alhubai District | Touraan City

Sign in to follow this  


Welcome to the great Gurivia, a country of endless deserts to the South, and an coast and river filled eden to the Mediterranean-African North. This country is not he wealthiest of Arabic nations, but people here still manage to build beautiful cities, and due to the discovery of oil reserves found in the Central part of Gurivia, things could just be turning around for a country new to Democracy after a successful revolution. In this first real update I will be focusing on some areas around the capital, Touraan City in the state of Presosud. But before you have a look at the update, take some time to browse through some of the Nations basic information...so you know a little more about Gurivia.


Welcome to Gurivia


* Yeah, The Country has an association to Llithustania :whatevs: *

Current National flag * maybe tweaked in time :P *


The City of Touraan is located on the North end of the Country, where the land is a lot more lush and forested as the area has access to an expansive amount of water. Living in Touraan is more the lifestyle of middle-class and high-wealth citizens, and with the plans of turning the City into a bustling Modern society like Dubai and Abu-Dhabi, it may only look better in the later future, but will push over those who have little to spare.


Alhubai is one of the few growing financial centers in a series which will meet sooner or later, in the developments of the city. The crazy mixtures of high, medium and low wealth residents are scattered around these areas. Future plans secure the lower wealth areas doom as they will be removed from this expanse of city.


New high-rises begin to dominate the skyline and in a few years, will be a lot more than it is now.


Like in most areas around Touraan, almost every part of the city touches water and with that water filled coast, there's usually a sandy beach. But since this part of the city is touching the bay that it encircles, most of seems to be composed of grey sand and some rocks. So these areas are usually for sunbathing at when tourists are about.


By nightfall, the city remains to be quite as beautiful as it is in the day, buildings being illuminated and lighting the dark. And evermore plans ensure that this still quite dark downtown will be as bright as Hong Kong during the evening.


Meanwhile, west of the main downtown area, the lower rises of the city cover the west arm of the city. This area is seperated from the main part of Alhubai by a moderately large expanse of water which connects the bay to the Mediterranean Sea.


By morning, West Alhubai can be seen better, clearly seen in this picture are the vast shopping complexes and markets, and in the background, a tall office standing free, dwarfing other structures, a tower thats part of a chain of towers which will be built here West Alhubai. It's time they embrace the future.

Thanks for Viewing! :bunny:

Great city so far! My only complaint is that the population for your country may be too high. Egypt is the most populous nation in the Arab world at approx. 80 million and has the Nile+Bigger land size. A population of 20 million would be more realistic. Lol, sorry for the nitpicking, you have a great CJ so far; keep it up!
