Covina is a city located in the eastern area of the server, owned by _Kastle. It is one of the largest cities by area on the server, and contains the largest airport on the server.

History

Covina was originally founded as a small town on what is now the Hummingbird Islands, next to Huntington Beach at  C11  Coronado. However, in 2015 Kastle decided to move the town to the beach area south of Achowalogen Takachsin with the goal of being able to get enough land to paste in a large airport he had been working on through an SMP with the aforementioned town. In addition, Kastle also started annexing all of the large towns near Covina, including Victorian City, Vergil, and Appleton. Finally, in 2016 after getting approval Appleton was demolished and ATC International Airport was added, but only half of it because the staff was mean. After all the gates were filled however, ATC International Airport finally got pasted in fully in August of 2016, fulfilling Kastle's life goal and making him eternally happy.

The Republic of Covina is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, soft-spoken computers, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 698 million Covinans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Los Angeles. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.1%.

The powerhouse Covinan economy, worth 82.5 trillion Kastle's Monies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 118,216 Kastle's Monies, with the richest citizens earning 7.2 times as much as the poorest.

Preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime, the government is using tax revenues to provide jobs for the poor, the Coast Guard is pioneering a quixotic program to train fish, and only AI know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Covina's national animal is the Utopiary, which thrives inside of Covina's lush, genetically engineer forests.

Covina is ranked 44,350th in the world and 1st in MRT Union for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 2,822.88 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.

Oh yeah, and he somehow got Governor in June of 2016 after adding one building.

Government

Covina is a dictatorship under the rule of _Kastle. Citizens are forced to bow down to him on a daily basis. In addition, the regime is very militaristic, with Covina Military officers strategically placed everywhere, as well as BART Police, which the Covina Military contracts out lesser operations to (such as security) as well as those the Covina Military cannot "legally" do. The Covina Military also protects Los Angeles and builds large warships in partnership with the KIA. It has also engaged in several wars, such as the one over the Isle of Friel.

Economy

The Covinan economy is very large, with focus on producing transit connections and military stuff. In addition Covina also is led by the MRT's richest person, _Kastle.
