[ Indroduction ]

Welcome to the City of Wyndard, or preferably Wyndard Metropolitan Area, with the population of over a million people and is still growing at a cheetahs' pace. Wyndard have one of the longest history, dating back to the Settlement of Wyndard in 637 A.D. and is home to the famous Fort de Florenac, the French outpost in the city centre which it was built in 1776. The social life in Wyndard is really diverse, and varied compared to other metropolis. Wyndard skyline is still growing, despite of lack of spaces in the CBD area; and considering its lack of space, it is another reason why South Yarra (South Wyndard) skyline is growing to join the city skyline. Wyndard's main river - Yarra River, and it is an icon and "story" about Wyndard, with so many 19th/20th Century brick bridges over the river and there are only one modern bridge - Western Bridge which it was built in 1987. Wyndard have so many dual-lane motorways around the city, and almost all of them connects directly to the city centre from the suburbs or industuries. Wyndard have two airports, and both of them is less than 5 kilometres from the city centre.

Public Transport of Wyndard is extremely crazy, over 35 bus lines cramming together into one city, and around 24 buses start its line at either two major city centre bus terminal - South Cross Station and Spencer Street Station and connect it to the suburbs. There are two suburban bus interchanges, one at Castlecrag and one at Ascot. Wyndard bus network is one of the best in the country and there are five metro lines around the city, all connect to the city centre. Sixth metro line are currently under construction, connecting from Wyndard-City Airport to Wyndard International Airport via five city centre metro stations. Government promises to build 10 new bus routes, 5 new metro lines by soon as possible, to ensure that Wyndard is still have a world class public transport.

Government earns $5 million per turn, and at the moment Wyndard have the budget of over a billion dollars - thanks to the extenstive development of industuries and tourism. The such revenue have allowed the Government to build two major stadiums in Wyndard, both at South Yarra. One stadium - AAMI Stadium, a soccer stadium and Yarranow Stadium, a football stadium. There are so many local small sporting facilities around the city - especially tennis and basketball.

I'll spam you a few of facts about Wyndard before "officially" start the CJ.
