FACTOIDS,FIGURES,& PHOTOS

Lying just east of Genito Island is Robious Island. Although dwarfed by Midlothian Island (Martin's main island and its largest) It's still Martinwood's the second largest island. Here are both traffic and geographical maps of the Thompson Point (It's erroniously called a point although Cape would be a more accurate term). You can also see northern neighbor LaCrosse and northeastern neighbor Austin in the street map.

Here's Thompson City in all its glory, not only is this place a major economic powerhouse of Robiuos Island, but also in Martinwood. It has several corperate HQs and regional offices, multiple colleges and sports teams.

MARTINWOOD USES JBBRY'S ISLE OF REE MAP AS SEEN HERE -

GENITO ISLAND: EMERALD OF THES WEST!

Genito Island is the western most settlement of Martinwood, it's a moderate sized island composed of three small towns. They are David's Beach, South Genito, and Northshore. The Economy relies mainly on tourism and fishing along with some small manufacturing and small amounts of Agriculture.

10387420_10152929997634377_3475382430892391971_n.jpg

This 3D Topograhical map shows the basic outline of Genito Island, with Northshore in the north, South Genito in the South and David's Beach out east.

A little farther east, we see the Naval base.

10441181_10152930000979377_6400033191589347955_n.jpg

This is the northern portion of Genito Island. It includes Northshore and North David's Beach

10389149_10152929998644377_441845573049273270_n.jpg

Here's David's Beach, the westernmost settlement in Martinwood. Aside from having being one of the islands two ferry terminals, it is also a popular summer desitination and a large portion of the shacks you see are actually vacation rental properties.

10341858_10152929999329377_9198717761269857245_n.jpg

The Northern half of the town is still populated by vacation shacks, but there are more perminent residences in this side of town. Lots of Farm labor lives here.

10501609_10152930001049377_2811154737558011655_n.jpg

One of the main reason's for David's Beach to have so many shacks is that David's beach tends to get the brunt of every major storm the sweeps through the area. The shacks are much easier to rebuild then any larger home.

10415623_10152929998839377_8355822283278133379_n.jpg

You'd be surprised at the industrial strength of Genito Island. Several small manufacturers and agricultural businesses are located in Genito Island. Here we see a couple of examples, with a Vineyard (Across from the graveyard) built near an aluminium tubing manufacturer (Top right corner).

10453111_10152930000584377_9121593337522358394_n.jpg

Northshore also has it's own beach and a fairshare of Industry. Here we see that Tourism also holds strong here with both the Ferry terminal and the Beach

10444787_10152930000779377_3887718466261620758_n.jpg

There is even minor suburban sprawl as a couple of retail companies (ShopKo and Burger King) have built on the outskirts of town.

10447746_10152930000619377_5266899586605816742_n.jpg

Most Industry in northern Genito Island is located around the power plant (Any suggestions on what kind of power plant I should make it? Coal and Oil both seem impractical with thei islands size, and accessibility)

The bread and butter of Northern Genito, the Northshore Beach! one of the islands gems, it is well known throughout western Martinwood as a hotspot, even attracting American Hollywood elites occasionally.

10514670_10152930001309377_4801614563234961143_n.jpg

Another local attraction, is the Max Alfred Spire, named after the cities first mayor.

10340172_10152930001419377_2108503668778947609_n.jpg

Here's the most important building in Genito Island! the Genito Island stae building (Yes Genito Island is a state) where most of the state government works.

South Genito's smaller downtown.

While tourism is the mainstay in the north of the island, Fishing is moneymaker in SOuth Genito, here we see the main fishing port.

10492505_10152929998994377_3921188762338850998_n.jpg

Another hidden Gem in Genito Island is the Arts Center. Located next to the Lutheren church of Genito Island, and the Elementry School, it's a place where artist of multiple mediums can showcase themselves.

MARTINWOOD HISTORY AND RANDOM FACTOIDS

 

Located roughly 350 miles north-northwest of San Fransisco lies the Federal Republic of Martinwood. Martinwood itself has an interesting history as it wasn't discovered untill the 1960s when stalite imaging first came into being.  Yes, the island managed to stay unexplored even through the early jet age. The island was then colonized as a joint adventure between the UK and the US in 1974, with a caviot that the Island would be granted independance 30 years later. The Island finished building its infistructure in 1989 and in 2014 it was finally granted Independance. The year of this CJ is 2029, 15 years after the independance.

 

The Island itself is not that mineral rich,  but what it does lack in mineral wealth it more than makes up for in agricultural wealth. Several of the largest "homegrown" companies (Companies that are orginally owned and operated by Martinwoodiands) are in agriculture. The main exports of Martinwood are Peaches, Citrus, Nuts, Beef and the most important crop of Martinwood, Corn.

 

The Flag of Martinwood is a blue and white tri-color with a red horizontal stripe and a red "H". Why the red H? There isn't any "H" in Martinwood. Well if you look closer you will see the "H" actually forms and "M" and "W".

 

I hope that quick biopic of Martinwood will give you enough info for the future updates, update 1 will be coming soon.
