- "We all deserve a second chance, something our old homes denied us. We should all be able to live as one, not seperate. Our greatest achievement is not creating this home, but to come together in harmony. This place we all call home shall be called Naril..."
- —An unknown founding father of the city of Naril ~c. 927
Naril is the largest metro in the country of Naril (United Narite Republic). It is the capital of the Yekos Province and the country of Naril. The metropolitan is situated in the central southern Samil Archipelago region. Currently according to a recent census, the metro is home to about 99 million citizens with a possibility of reaching 100 million in the next 5 years. Naril is one of the largest and oldest metropolitans in Mobius. Naril is a hub for 60+ wards, cities, and villages.
Naril is home to the University of Naril (UNa), Yekos Institute of Technnology (YIT), Paltenue International Airport, T'ssani Airforce Base, Inatmass Naval Base, Hama Inc., Sound 7 co., General Purpose International (JEEPi), Touria co. Hasumt'ma Studios, and Yekos Bay located in the eastern area of Naril.
As far back to date, the name Naril is believed to be a dual purpose name, (Na) meaning "Heaven" and (Ril) believed to be slang for "home". However it is still unclear of what language Naril derived from as both are of completely different languages. This also has many archeologists and reseachers speculationg about the metropolitan's earliest settlers. Unfortunately this meaning is now obsolete due to the shift of pronunciations and grammatic structures in it's native language.
Roughly around c. 927, Naril was believed to be a safe haven for many Mobian races during the era of rising nations. Many artifacts from the ancient ruins of the original city of Naril evident different architectural styles, cultures, and slight signs of seperation. Dogs, cats, hedgehogs, echidnas, birds, wolves, and many more races of Mobians have been known to inhabit the city of Naril with many more races that come in the future. The center piece of the city plaza known as the Tower of Col is evident of integrated architectural styles from the different groups who established the city.
War of Year 9
In the fall of c.936, the many races of Naril had held battles against the each other for control over the entire city and enforce their form of government. During this period the city was divided into eight wards. The war had lasted an entire decade until the an act of peace was passed amongst the races to never go to war within the city and that they would be on a Pan Democratic government system.
Around c. 1004, an unknown country had invaded the shores of Naril. They had purposed that they were gods of another world and demanded all valuable items and precious metals. Under the guidence of Lou Sheng Ku, the Naril citizens had staged a revolt against the invaders.
The citizens of Naril had used all basic fighting skills and weapons to repel the invaders. They soon retreated to their ships and stationed them off shore. However, as a last resort, the naval ships had opened fire on the shore, parts of the city, and all who were insight. When all seemed clear, the commander (along with a few guards) had marched on the shore only to be ambused and killed by Ku and several other citizens. The ships had departed from the shores in complete disarray.
With almost a third of the population wiped out and a victory that was claimed by the skin of their teeth, Lou Sheng Ku had order the creation of a self defense and army force before his term was over. Kobo Lyn had supported in the creation of a military during the course of his short lived term.
Great Expansion of the 12th Century
In c. 1100, Dhan ut Vini had commissioned for the expansion of the City of Naril to become its own city/state. The almost over crowed city had horizontially and vertically expanded allowing more citizens to live within city grounds. They also expanded their exporation of the island they were situated on along with other islands in the area. Thus seaports and rural farming areas were created on off shore locations.
Alauous Earthquake/ Tsunami
Without any notice the Naril Trench had triggerd an estimated 6.0 magnitude earthquake in c. 1183. The earthquakes effects on Naril was devistating as the original city of Naril was flooded by a tsunami moments later. The tsunami had caused much damage to the city and the land around it with liquified soil, devistation to the infastructure of the city, and parts of the land spliting. Archeologist have speculated that the Tower of Col had shifted 9 feet west of its original foundation and had became structurally unstable. The city of Naril was abandond and many other villages around the area had been developed still with the original principals still in mind.
With the destruction of Naril, the Mobian races had created many villages that situated around Naril. With this came an early form a segregation between races. Even though roads had connected them, they were only used for trade. Unless any form of business was being performed, it was highly frowned upon those who came for their own personal reasons. After decades of developement, the communities slowly merged togother and the segregation was put to an end.
On a cool summer day of 1257, the representatives of several villages had come together to reform the council of Naril and followed the core values of its original purpose. A new mayor was elected to lead it in this direction, Iunka Satu of the Wolves. Naril was officially recreated in 1260.
Growth in Masses
During the period of the 1300s through the mid 1400s, the wards of Jin Rhina and Uiosae were rapidly developing in both population and economic stimulations. With most of the towns reconected into one settlement, economic liveliness was sky rocketing. The orignial City of Naril was put under a massive restoration act that would turn the city into a new political site for future city planning.
During the Two Century Conquest
Naril was a centralized military headquarters at the time. The city had recieved numerous attacks that have proved to be usless against the cities deffences. Despite the city being at war for almost a milineum, the citizens of the area were active participants in military operations.
Kene's Secret Passage
During a foggy evening of winter of 1507, without any noticed, the city was ambushed from under ground by a detachment of warriors under Gen. Kene's command. The city was ocupied for several weeks with little to no ressistance from the citizens or military personel. With the use of guerilla tactics, the citizens and soldiers were able to easily overrun Kene's position by using the series tunnel passages to ambush key officers. After Gen. Kene had abandond his post, all operations of the city were returned to normal, however the war was still in progress.
Naril was made the capital of the now United Narite States and it also became the home of the Imperial Palace as part of its Constitutional Republican Monarchy government head. However the cities government was still considered mayor-counsil. Naril endured several centuries of prosperity as it began its rise into the global economy.
During the 19th century, Naril became an industrial powerhouse of the country and one of leaders in of industry in Mobius. With more than 6 million living in the metro area, the industrial strength was unlike any other of its time. Naril had contributed over 70% of its nations power and economy. As a result of many citizens participating in factory and railroad jobs, a death tole of half a million per year was accounted for 17% of Naril's initial death rate. By the end of the 1800s, the demand for industry gradually declined with newer and more inovative jobs had began to rise.
Growing Trends and Problems
As the metro area began to grow more dense, the councils of each devision began massive building projects to further expand the total coverage of land. Unfortunately the metro became limited in expansion space due to the other growing cities and reservation areas that boardered the metro. To help the towns around the metro become more prosperous and increase real estate matters, the council, under the mayor's aproval, had create an expansion act known as the"Naril Metropolis Act". The act allowed Naril to adopt any city, town, and reservation to be a sub division of Naril as a ward or region. In 1923, the Naril Metropolitan expanded as far as 50 miles in any general direction from the Yekos Bay area.
Centralized Commercial Capital
By the 1940s, many high-tech jobs and commercial high rises became a growing factor in Naril's economic credability. Many Headquarters of Naril native companies as well as localization, operations, and core offices have relocated to the metro area. With that came Naril's mass population rise that has steadily grew by the millions every decade with the economy also rising in large masses.
Earthquake/Flooding of '88
During the summer of '88, an earthquake with a magnitude that exceeded 8.0 had struck 4 miles outside of the Yekos Bay area. The devistation to the area caused by the earthquake was fairly mild compared to the flooding that followed after the series of after shocks that followed. Due to the geographic features of the area, tsunamis were not able to form as large as they had in the past. For a period of 3 weeks, the lower parts of Naril were flooded with almost 10 feet of water. After the flooding subsided, the area nearest to the bay recieved the heaviest form of devistation that had cripple them for several years, the initial repair cost was well over
U3 billion ($1.74 billion).
The waterbound ward of Travis was put under the Solitude Act of 1996, due to the sudden rise of its crime rate. After the floodings of '88, the devistation and disaray of the ward allowed orgaized crime lords to rise. It was even revealed that the mayor of the ward was part of a organized gang. In responce to this the, metro council had completely blocked off and destroyed entry and exit points into the ward. Anarchy became an issue to those who want nothing to do with the crimes of Travis. When Mayor Hoin of Naril caught wind of the situation, he repealed the Solitude Act to prevent major corporations from relocating their factories and plants from the area. In addition he had used over
U100 milion to rebuild all entry and exit points Travis. Even though the ward was once again reconected to the metropolitan, complete inspections of citizens, cargo, and vehicles are administrated upon entry and exit of the ward. This policy will be renued until the wars's crime rate drops 30%.
For the past 50 yeears, Naril has been in a constant struggle to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases. Multiple programs and regulations to help the overall air quality in the metropolitan. Councilmen and women have set a goal to reduce the metro's emissions by 30% by 2020.
Overall land and water pollution in the metro area today is considerably light compared to the 1800's era. Most citizens have grown a low tolerance to filth around them and my pick up loose trash. To help reduce ground pollution, "Mobian's Needs" community projects have been develope at the center of districts to tend to trash collection, bath housing, laundry cleanings, and even hazardous dumping.
Natural Disaster Issues
Due to the geographical features of the area, Naril is prone to having massive earthquakes, tidal waves, tsunamies, and rarely hurricane like weather.
The metroplitan is within miles of a large fault line outside of the Yekos Bay area. The fault line is know for its high magnitude earthquakes and high speed tsunami waves. The metro along with many other cities in Naril are prepared for many natural disasters that are likely to occur in the area. On several outer bound islands that belong to the metro have seismic detection units near the fault line that detect and predict seismic fluxuations, a warning signal is beamed to every device that has either LAN or internet connections when an earthquake is likely to occur.
Eventhough it has not been a problem for thousands of years, five dorment volcanoes of high power are located over 200 miles southwest of the metropolitan. The Safety Board has issued mandatory evacution and shelter procedures to be practice ever month for major organization, schools, and residential areas.
