Cave Canem




Neue Steiermark: Cave Canem

The District of Neue Steiermark is located in north-central Schulmania, along the border of Imperial Mookimia and Mookimian Verà. The name was selected after the inspiring 2011 State Visit to Terra Canis (click HERE to see its namesake in Austria). Easy river access allows for transit west and south to secure areas for distribution across Schulmania. The Veràn capital of Kolibri is a short distance away on the other side of the river, allowing for adequate supplies and resources to maintain the military outpost and its support facilities. In this new transit hub a substantial investment has been made. Investors from Evean Vansop (click HERE to see more on this topic) from Feasty Foods have opened up a full scale cat food cannery and other cat food production facilities. The site they have selected is inland, along the Fresca River on Imperial Mookimian border and close to the city of Kolibri. The locals were not super excited that the company’s real estate agent was a dog. Thus, the site’s name became known as “Cave Canem”.





The new district’s countryside

The new city of Cave Canem will be quite different than the typical Schulminion city in several aspects. First, it is an industrial city. We don't really have those. Also, the material of choice for construction is predominantly local brick. This lends a distinctive hue to most of the structures in town. Red brick is definitely the 'in' color here. With a few thousand well paying industrial and support jobs, Cave Canem has been attracting plenty of new residents. To accommodate the influx, new and taller residential buildings have been built. This despite the fact that Cave Canem has actually elected a dog as mayor - a Schulmania first.


Mayor Smokey has proven to be a very capable leader for Cave Canem


We start with the industrial home of Central Mookimia Can Fabricators, Inc. CMCF makes the cans for the cat food canned at the Fancy Feast cannery.


The Fancy Feast factory is the biggest building, and biggest employer, in town



The Fido Feline Church is a distinctive red brick structure. In the spirit of canine-feline solidarity, the church was named for both groups. Services are bilingual in Meow and Bark.


A bridge connects Cave Canem with Kolibri across the river to the west. The peninsula is also just across the river from East Kolibri to the south.



The tallest residential structure in the nation to date is here in Cave Canem. Notice our citizen in the middle of the street. This is why we ban cars: too many feline like to go in the street and we don't want them to get hurt.


The industrial heart of town

A small castle by the bridge is the home of PROFORCE, the Protective Force, which includes police and fire protection as well as veterinary service


Tartar Control Pounce is produced in this factory and is a highly prized commodity



The Ossie Scratching Post Works produces quality posts of all types for the national chain Ossie's Scratching Post


SlantiCorp produces things which are slanty or diagonal. That's a pretty broad category. But, they do specialize in slantiness and diagonality.


Want to shop some local retailers? Try Tailchaser Corners. Specialty shops like Schriefer's Hardware, Tonraq Market, Rico's Specialty Outfitters, Huston's Mass Effect Spectrometers and More, and Ben's Lists & more have great stuff to meet your every need and want!

Oh thank god, I'm fluent in bark.  My meow's a bit rusty, and the cats here in Japan speak a very odd dialect of it that's difficult to catch at times.  Very pretty place, as always!  I like the higher density, it's very cool amidst all the green!

rewright    Feline supervision increases quality work!

Huston    Thanks. We do try to have services for our whole population. :D

NMUSpidey    Luckily felines all speak similar dialects of Meow, so Feline is pretty much the lingua franca of cats everywhere

MilitantRadical    LOL. Not at all. Once they accept the inevitable sovereignty of felines, it is all so easy!

Richie99    He is a most upright canine indeed!And he does like to munch on GATOR meat!
