Welcome to another entry of the Ludao Island Republic! This is the city of Richmond, home to 108,000 people. It was developed around the same years as when Pegland City existed. Richmond is home to Ludao Island's many scientific research companies such as Intel and Microsoft. However, over the past decade, unemployment began to rise significantly, and once middle class neighborhoods have begun to evolve into slums. As a result of this, the government office in Richmond began a series of educational reforms and more commericial and industrial projects. 

Its latest successfully developed industrial park is located along Parkplace street, where high tech corporations have set up offices and promised jobs for the unemployed. Nevertheless, Richmond has a rich history of mining and lumbering, which fueled its economy and population. Back in the 20th century, people from Pegland City found Richmond to be a quiet city thus it slowly increased their population earlier industrial companies, who were asked to shut their operations in Pegland City, found refuge in Richmond, where restrictions on Air Quality were flexible. This also created a substantial problem where industrial and toxic wastes were dumped along the coastline and lowering land value to an all record low. 

Crime has also ridden the city with terrible names. Some of these include "Ludao's Gangtown" and "All-free city" by al lwalks of life. Over the past few years, more crimes appeared as more slums came about. Ethnic clashes between the chinese and the caucaisans furthur esclate Richmond's crime bubble. The mayor of Richmond proposed a massive crackdown on all gangs and suspects in some of the unsafest neighborhoods in Richmond. However due to Richmond's massive deficit, economic analyists predict that the operation will not happen for at least another decade or two.

With these challenges, Richmond strives to become the most diverse city in Ludao Island.







The largest airport of Ludao Island. Due to congestion and the area where the airport is located, plans are being made by the Port Authority of Pegland City to build a larger international airport around Garden Groove by 2205.
