Southwestern Megalopolitan Complex
|Southwestern Megalopolitan Complex|
The Southwestern Megalopolitan Complex is a collection of major cities and metropolitan areas emanating from the coastal region lining the Lower Philharmonic Bay in southwestern Illuminatia.
The population of the megalopolitan complex was approaching 6 million people as of the 250 AI Census and is estimated to surpass 10 million people at the 300 AI Census, placing it as the fifth-largest of Illuminatia's seven conurbations.
The megalopolitan complex is anchored by Requiem. Other cities contributing to the region include Béla Fleck, Elton, and Kerrang. The warm, tropical climate in this region and the proximity to oceanfront land has resulted in an economy that in most cities is heavily influenced by the tourism and hospitality industry. A number of cities in the megalopolitan complex are also supported heavily by activity in the copulatory trades and entertainment industries.
The Southwestern Megalopolitan Complex grew from a cluster of settlements sparked by landings from the Lucidus mission that appeared to target the Lower Philharmonic Bay. Original settlers here came from the second multiversal duplication of Lucidus survivors from the Lucidus II ship.
