Jake's new house:

48th Main Ave.
Disaster Prevention Agency Headquarters

Serville is a metropolis (located right next to the cities at war) built by by major Tremland. 
Born in May 23rd, 1954, he grew up in seryville back when it was a small farming community. In the age of 19, he moved to Seatle, and joined the millitary and became a Sergeant Major. He then moved back to the more developed Seryville (had no major at the time), and was elected major of Seryville in 1976.

The US Disaster prevention headquarters (DPH) headquarters is located in the core downtown of Seryville (tallest building)

Inside the building 8:32 PM

Marine 1: (looking at telescopic images) So far so good, but something wierd...
Marine 2: (interrupts) Sir! heads up, we have a wave of civilians coming our way
Marine 1: From where?
Marine 2: From Techville and Woodland, the Cities at war, They're doing a major evacuation
Marine 3: I heard of those cities, you know, Jeff and George K. Are so immature, why can't they just be at peace?
Marine 2: I don't know, and it gets better, The general of techville US forces is in charge of the whole operation, and he means business
Marine 1: Check out these readings, it appears to be some kind of extraterrestrial body, an unknown entity
Marine 3: It's a whole bunch of them, and they're headed straight for Earth.
Marine 4: we only have 36 hours...
Marine 2: Did you hear? George and Jefferson are about to destroy each other's city!

Sargeant major Tremland: The Aliens are planning for a full scale invasion, because they might be looking for something buried underneath somewhere. I've never seen anything like this before. Get ready for a real war boys...


Tension was arising between Jefferson and george during this arguement:

George: (on phone) Hey Jefferson! I'm working on a new section, and I would like to build the wall closer to your town.

Jefferson: What?!

George: I said I would like to build the wall towards your city So that I have more room.

Jefferson: uh So let me get this staight. YOU want TO get more space, and take away space from my city?!

George: yes!

Jefferson: WHAT!? Are you CRAZY?! I'm trying to scrape money to build this city, and you want more!

George: I need space!

Jefferson: Okay then, let me respond to this in the following way (gets airhorn and blows it into the phone)

George:(HONK!!!) OUCH! What was that all about?!

Jefferson: I Am not allowing it! I need my space and I don't want your city shrinking it!

George: Com'on! I offered you electricity!

Jefferson: So? you have tons of electricity President Greedyface!

George: Escuse me?

Jefferson: That's right!

George: Well then, I think your'e a ---------!

Jefferson: That Tears it! (hangs up the phone and launches missle)


George:(Kaboom) what in the world? He Bombed my City! I can't believe it! (dials phone)

Jefferson: Hello?

George: Cute! that was real cute! I do not play games!!! My millitary can destroy your puny city in seconds! 

Jefferson: I'm not afraid!

(hangs up the phone)

George: I'm calling in my millitary!

Commander: Soldiers! we are going to drop 5 bombs on woodland Town! Got it?

All: Sir yes Sir!

planes take off and head for woodland and then







Jake: mom? what's happening?

mom: I don't kno-(BOOM!) Get inside Were being Bombed!!!!


(That is not Jake's neighboorhood)

Jefferson: (on phone, furious) OH so that's how it is huh?

George: Ha! That will teach you a lesson!

Jefferson: George, I'm afraid I got no choice but to do this. (hangs up and launches nuclear bomb at techville)


The introduction

When two mayors where hiking, they both purchased the same piece of land! George K. and Jefferson T. had few things in common. George K. Likes being organized, but Jefferson just wants to build a place for people to live. So they built a wall in the middle of the map. 

George K.: Here, you can have the hill part of the map. I like my cities flat.

Jefferson: (whispers) And I like my cities "hidden."

So they both began to build their cities,  But Jefferson Had an Idea:

Jefferson: (on phone) Why can't we build one big city together?

George: (on phone with Jefferson, annoyed) because your'e Disorganized! Dis-or-gan-ized!!!

(hangs up)

Jefferson: (sarcastically) jeez, that was pleasant

George is indeed very serious about his city. He wants everything almost perfect.

Eventually, They built their cities. George K. named his city Techville, and jefferson named his city Woodland Town. Here's how they look so far:

Let's check out techville:


Indeed it's very organized. Each Section is surrounded by walls. The main town is a Section of the city, where the city hall, courthouse, and mayor's house is. There are some commercial buildings, surrounded by a suburban area separated by an avenue. The City also has it's downtown, it's mall under construction, And a place for the wealthiest sims, a small, private neighborhood of huge mansions.

Everybody get's fed well, they get a great education, healthcare, and strong security. Here's a nightime image of cityhall:


And images of the suburbs:


Pools sure are popular in this town.


Population: 20,000

Commercial Jobs: 10,000

Industrial jobs: 2,000

Techville also has a VERY strong millitary. Here's an images:


They also managed to build a a nuclear power plant,  a federal prism, and a HUGE millitary army training camp. Here's the rich part of town:


Now let's look into Woodland:

Population: 10,000

Commecial jobs: 5,000

Industrial Jobs:1,000

Woodland Town is just one city, with no sections. It's just one big city. It has decent education, health, but no police stations, or firestations!

It is a very poor town.It has a weak military with a few missiles to launch. They couldn't afford any powerplants so jefferson asked for some electricity, and Geoge said: "Very well then, here's some power for your puny civilization." So they built a powerline over the wall to the other town. Here's the images of woodland Town:


keep scrollin'


Now here's a night image of Techville:


Now were going to meet two families, one in each city, to compare how they live.

In techville we have a 12 year old girl who lives in the suburbs of techville. Here's what she says:

Hi, I'm Kayla! I'm 12 years old, and I have a little brother, my mom and my dad. I'm Loving this town and all my friends at school! The mayor is so friendly! He replaced the broken swing sets on the playground! This is where I live:


I love swimming in my pool in the back yard in those hot days. I live in that nice, two-story house right there. I ride my bike to school everyday.

And now from Woodland City, we have an 11 year old boy. This is how he lives:

"What's up everybody? I'm Jake, and I live in this house right here with my mom and dad and no siblings:


I live in a two-story house, take the bus to school, and I have a lot of friends! My neighbor has a swimming pool in the back yard, and I swim there with my friends. I learned in school that there is another town called Techville. It's right next to this town. I hope I get to visit it someday.

So there we have it, two families. What's going to happen next I wonder?
