Well, what can I tell you about Multimix City? It's my city, it's a place I really love to live in.
Multimix City is the biggest city of Squirisia. As you might have already guessed from its name, many of the first people to settle here were actually squirrels. Today there are still many squirrels here but there are many other species too. They come from all over the world.
To the west we live close to the sea and to the east high mountains stretch over the vast land which otherwise is mostly covered with forests, lakes and rivers. So you see our landscape is as diverse as our people.
Our climate is warm and sunny in summer but cold with lots of snow but still sunny in winter.
Multimix City has a lively and buzzing arts and cultural scene. There is a lot of interesting architecture to be seen, fashion was reinvented here during the last ten years and with inhabitants coming from all over the world our food has something tasty to offer for everyone.
Of course the tech industry plays an important role in Multimix City. Many people are busy inventing ever new and amazing gadgets. It's a place where curious and explorative minds work together.
With a low crime rate and so much to see and do tourism is big too. In fact there are many industries here, from manufacturing to financial services, you can find everything here.
We value our environment a lot. Luckily because there is so much water here it's easy to fullfill all our energy needs with hydro energy and a little wind and sun energy. It's easy to get around as we have plenty of public transport.
In summer people enjoy all kinds of water sports from swimming to canoeing to surfing and sailing while in winter skiing, tobagganing (sledding) and ice hockey top the list of sportive activites.
There are also all sorts of festivals all over the year. In the summer there are many musical events, free concerts and theatre and dance performances in parks. In the fall we have a big fruit festival while in winter and spring the museums always hold some surprises for visitors. There is always an art exhibition in town that you haven't seen yet. Of course in winter we are famous for our snow festivals with lots of beautiful ice sculptures to be admired.
We all live peacefully together. Probably our secret for this is that we all share some common values no matter how different we are otherwise. Those values are non negotiable and if you don't share them you are asked to either adapt or leave. Among those values that we prize very highly are individualism, equality of the sexes, equality before the law, freedom of speech, freedom of expression and freedom of science. The liberty to be who and what we are, is realy very important so we are very tolerant of other opinions and ways of living. We are very respectful. It's really live and let live. And we never ever tolerate any violence.
That's what makes Multimix City such a wonderful place. It's a place where you can try things out and fail without being judged. It's a place where you can think freely. And most of all it's a place where you can make friends easily, can laugh with them and just enjoy life. It's beautiful to be here.
Our standard of living is very high and we only pay very low taxes even though we spend a lot of money on parks and nature and other projects we deem important. This is possible because we have eliminated almost all spending on the so called helping industry. No social workers roam our streets as we found that our citizens don't need any nannies to force their ways on everyone else. Our citizens are fully responsible for themselves.
