I haven't been CJing but beneath all this BATting work, I actually had some time off doing incredibly complex Victorian homes. You can see them all in my BAT thread.
Back to the CJ/MD or whatever you call it...
Most important, the details:
- Region view:
Nation: - (part of Indonesia), Nusa Tenggara Barat province
- Wonokromo Regency: 18k
- Capital: Wonokromo
- Tanjung Regency: 42k
- Capital: Tanjung Wedhus
- Kaliasin Regency: (WIP)
Occupied by various unknown kingdoms and natives before Dutch occupation, the Dutch reached Arafura Island in 1859, where they promptly settled in Javanese and Sundanese settlers to work on spice plantations as well as clearing the lands. Unknown to the settlers nor the Dutch, very little fertile land and for years, spices such as pepper dominated the trade. Whatever fertile land was available they were located in what is now Wonokromo Regency and scattered parts of the western half of the island. Things came to a change though, when drillers found oil in Tanjung Wedhus in 1936, but before anything big could be made, the island was occupied by the Japanese.
After a fierce Indonesian independence movement, the massive oil resources were forgotten until an exploration to the south by a joint Indonesian-Australian team found oil in 1994, just off the southeast coast. A boom followed for just 3 years where overinvestment and the general crises crippled the area. Today, the area has bounced back, and its currently growing fast with more and more oil being drilled.
The island is also known for having houses larger than one may expect in other parts of Indonesia, due to the large amount of undeveloped and underdeveloped land. Many of them share things in common with Dutch style houses, an oddity in a country known for favoring minimalist housing.
A teaser for you aswell!
