Puerto Marabella , also nicknamed Isle of wonders or Old Baronetta is a modern designed world made by tzekoo with the help of Nick A. ( SWISS builder ) and Henry R. ( Luxury Villas builder ). It actually includes a few building but more features are upcomming. The 200 000 inhabitants of this city are called the Marabellians.
It's a city built Ex Nihilo ( out of nothing ) in order to be one of the most attractive touristic destination and a large business center internationally known with many finance and corporation centers. The construction of the city began early in summer 2013 and the city should host about one million people by 2015, according to Jack Elklants, the actual mayor of the city, elected in 2013. the price of real estate is currently very reasonable (starting at € 2,000 per square meter), but the influx of individuals contributes to an irreversible increase that should bring the prices of the square meter to 3000€ very soon .
An ambitious project for some of the most ambitious builders of Eden, will it be good ? This is what we will see.
Jack Elklants :
" I trust my chief architects, I know what they are capable of and the result should be up to the expectations. "

DesignsThe city is principally a modernist one, with mainly tall and cubic shapes.
The principal architect wanted to build a modern city, with soft shapes, to represent the activism of the new town. But it has also classic style designed buildings, like the Magnus residence ( large beige building ), which was inspired by Roman architecture, without being as rustic.
Although there are also classic designed buildings like the sanders manor, situated on the front of the beach, which is the most ancient part of the modern town.

Even though Puerto Marabella is a neutral zone it has a own private Army called Puerto Marabellian Defense Force (PMDF), as its main goal is the defense of the territory of Puerto Marabella, but it's also responsible for crisis management in nature disasters and other crisis situations.
Since the army is as young as the newly created state, brand new gear has been ordered by the Swissfly systems.
The PMDF is splitted in 3 different parts:
Puerto Marabellan Ground Forces (PMGF)
The PMGF is outfitted with state of the art systems, like the new Type 3 main battle tanks and the Type 9 Light transport and support vehicles. The inventory also consists of resupply trucks, artillery and anti armor vehicles.

Early in 2013, The big cities Olympic Metropolis and Direct City are nearly full of inhabitants and the community needs to build another city, in a small village close to the edge of the two megalopolis, Marbella.It's a town with a rich history, and previously known for being a gathering town of high society. fact that the Sanders manor, in which lived Sir Sheffield Sanders, the greatest lord of the region, proofs well. In the early 1900's, the emperor of the time built his personnal library, now known as the Marabella National Library. The town knew a second rising in the 1960's, known as one of the biggest den of inquity in the country, because of its many illegal activities, and infrastructure such as casino or brothel. So much so that the town is nicknamed "Isle of wonders". That qualification contributed in a spectacular increase of tourist activity, and made it the 9th most visited city of the world.
In 1965, a masked man armed with a jigsaw sows trouble during a political meeting, killing 17 people including the mayor of the time. The police immediately organized research but the case was quickly abandoned due to the fact that several officers from the local police were corrupted by drug traffickers and criminals. The following year, the "jigsaw killer", on the same day that the previous year, backslides at a manifestation, and kills more than 30 people. He flees away and the police start chasing him through the city during more than a hour, before its trace is lost mysteriously in the middle of a forest. This episode led to a mass exodus, people trying to escape a third mischief. Right after the events, the buildings are dropped by the inhabitants and the city is left as a ghost town. During more than 40 years, nobody wants to settle in the town, fearing the jigsaw killer. A legend tells that he still hides in the forrest where he disappeared, waiting for inhabitants to come.
The project of rehabilitation of Puerto Marbella is presented to the mayors of the two cities in April 2013 and the construction begins in June 2013. The cost of the palmtrees avenue is estimated to 20 M $ and many companies has ordered several buildings in the center, and then, about 10k of labor has been mobilized for various projects. The goal to reach is to make another big city, attractant for tourists but also for active people who needs a good job and a stable situation. In July 2013 , Jack Elklants is elected as the first mayor of the city and shows his ambitiousness by announcing a project to build a immense airport and a railway station, which will be a center of communication between all the country. Since the achievement of the first building, many people left their house to find an accommodation in the center of this new city, there's about 200 000 inhabitants so far and still no trace of the jigsaw killer.
Puerto Marbella is situated near the sea, and has a great access to the sea. The three beaches in Marabella are known to be some of the most beautiful with the Olympic Metropolis reef. It's a considerable asset in the development of tourism within the city. There are actually three beaches in Marabella : The Palmenstrand, best known for its easy access, just in front of the city. The Gafardela beach, at the southwest of the city, a little bit eccentric relative to the city. And the last one, the biggest : The Mandrovia beach. This beach runs along the south side of the airport and ends at the right of the Airstrip.
