Chrisville and Ciudad de Los Volcanos have witnessed population growth a little slow lately and that is thanks to New Beardon, Dianna, and Browntown. Medium-sized towns with a big city feel yet without the big city problems.
"People are leaving our major cities and newcomers to the region are avoiding the major cities because people are beginning to realize to peacefulness of the medium size cities," says Gateland regional expert Johanna Llama.
Studies show that many people are, in fact, leaving or not even thinking of moving to the bigger cities right now and are more attracted to the medium sized cities because of the city feel yet without the big city hassles, horrible traffic and fast pace lifestyles.
Other than studies, population is also evidence. New Beardon has recently taken the spot as the 3rd largest city in the region now, beating Dianna who stayed at a 140,000 population for years.
New Beardon- 143,000 residents and growing. The city is now home to a major/minor league baseball team, and a decent university and still remains the connection of the whole region. Recently as the city has grown at a fast rate, they have opened more connections to Browntown, Chrisville, Jellyville, and Dianna.
Dianna- 142,000 people, right behind New Beardon and is part of the "Twin Cities," Dianna is still a vacation hotspot for celebs and all Gatelandians, the region's nicest beachfront (right next to the bridge leading into Jellyville), the only city with several different major record labels, tv and movie studios, dreams, and Ciudad's neighbor, it attracts tourists daily. Lately more parks and recreational areas have opened. It is now growing at a fast rate.
Browntown- 133,000 people! The city that was founded and created by high tech companies who left Chrisville, is voted the most beautiful and nicest city in the region beating Ciudad de Los Volcanos who is now number 2. Browntown, is a city that is split by the Filipoian River, on the south side is all of downtown and some residential while on the Northside is where all the residential areas are with some small businesses and its own downtown with a few high rise condos here and there. It is voted the cleanest and most beautiful city and when you go there, you see that they were telling the truth.
A big tourist shop, called the "Tourist trap" has just opened downtown, in front of the Browntown airport and connections to Chrisville has also opened downtown, that will lead you into Irvine, (the newest section of Chrisville.) The tourist shop is the only tourist shop in the region and also Browntown is home to some of the best high in demand high tech companies and still remains the high tech hub in the region.
The city's population was 123,000 for years but lately it has grown to 133,000 and still growing.
These three main cities are taking over right now and are growing at a fast rate.
Jellyville and Filipo remain the 2 smallest cities. While Jellyville is currently counted as the Ciudad Metro, both Jellyville and Filipo are wanting to be on their own. While Filipo is known for its Native Gatelandian museum, many artifacts and relics of the Filipo tribe, a retirement city and also home to high tech companies, who left Browntown, it remains small and very independent. It is the smallest city in the region with a steady population of 23,000.
Jellyville is also a retirement city but is home to the jelly factory that supplies the region and currently it is growing and has a population of 28,000 people.
