Federal Territory of Janghwa (Korean: 장화준주, Hanja: 壯華準州) is a city located at the southwestern deserts of the new MRT World. It was founded by Supykun and currently owned by LithiumMirnuriX. It is one of the biggest cities on the MRT Mesa Lines along with Birdhall, Kolpino City, Evella and Formosa, and is also one of the first city in the entire MRT where English is not the main official language (Korean).

Geography

Janghwa M.C. is located at the southwestern region of the MRT Gamma World where the MRT Mesa Line and the MRT Circle Line intersect with each other. The city used to consider itself as sasek gungaeshi (사색군계시, 四色群系市) - The City of Four Biomes, as the four combinations of the desert, the savannah, the mesa, and the ocean forms the city of Janghwa. Janghwa's territory has been reduced during the reformation and it is now a two-biome city (desert and savannah).

The Vermilion Postcode System (VPS) administers Janghwa City entirely as Ward 7 due to the capital building and establishments all inside Sado County. However, Chodo County and Judo County goes by the Ward 6 Region, and therefore is not necessarily true.

Rivers

As the only freshwater source in the city, the Chakdocheon (착도천, 着道川 "Chakdo River") is the largest river that cuts throughout Janghwa M.C. The river enters from the north, where it loops around Chakdo District of Sado County (hence the name), and travels southward out to the ocean. Due to the mostly dry environment of the city, this river acts as a lifeline and is regarded as massively important to life in the city.

The river (along with solar panels) is one of the two sources where the city gets their electricity and energy. Several hydroelectric power turbines are installed throughout the riverline.

Old Counties

During Reformation, Janghwa's territory was reduced due to the city being inactive. Two counties have been lost and are now unclaimed territories (Exempt Vietta island (Provisional. formerly called Juhwa Island (주화도). But not to be confused with another sovereign state as similar name. Near as Okok Citadel):

History

Formation

Janghwa M.C. back in the older days with the old MesaPromenade in the foreground...

Janghwa City's earliest beginning can be traced back all the way to October 8, 2014, when its prehistoric era had begun. Epicslinkie established a small town named Maldita surrounding the MRT transfer station of Mesa Line's M24 and Circle Line's C70. The city's miniature buildings and roads formed a ring around the massive MRT station, and didn't expand much beyond that. However, Epicslinkie seemed not to have returned after he last left on November 2, 2014, and for many months did Maldita remained abandoned.

Foundation

Supykun joined the MRT server on June 15, 2015, and in three days, discovered the plot around the station of M22 to be a fit spot to grow out a city easily and rapidly. He also wanted to open up the very first Korean town on the server as well. In June 21, 2015, Supykun began polling for which names should be use in the event of actually building a town between Gwangsa and Janghwa. With a poll of 6 to 10, Janghwa was the official name of Supykun's town planned at M22. On June 25, Supykun earned his membership and immediately started constructing the town of Janghwa.

Growth & Conflicts

The town grew rapidly in the beginning, and the size has become massive over the days passed. Janghwa's expansion to the south was blocked after its acquistion of M23 however due to Maldita taking its spot at M24 (C70) in June 25, 2015. This all ended at the GSM in October 7th when Maldita was successfully auctioned off to Janghwa City first shot, and the next day at October 8th, Maldita was absorbed and ceased service; Epicslinkie who was already absent for around a year by then was booted off of administration in the region.

On July 9, 2015, erty10089 wanted to restart another town and decided to give away his town to Supykun. Located at M29, Erty10089 left the town name with New Ertyland (thus the possibility of New Ertyland being much older than North Janghwa). As the agreement was complete, Supykun recieved the ownership of New Ertyland, and shortly after the planning to merge the two cities, the city was renamed to South Janghwa City. However, on July 19, 2015, frozen, who is an admod, discovered the situation and immediately declared the town of M29 to be disowned, as Supykun was still a citizen at the time.

Reformation

...and the new Janghwa seen from the ChakdocheonPromenade.

When Janghwa City started off, it set its target to become an impressive city via realistic size, and unique designs. Putting that into effect however, raised both praises and criticisms equally, signifying the mixed success of the strategy for the city development. However, as time passed by, the city was becoming more and more of a cookie-cutter standard, and the designs were becoming too basic. Janghwa City went into a reformation period in which many buildings, roads, and other things be demolished and be replaced with an improvement. During the process, most buildings in the city were demolished, road designs, pathways, and the type of architecture that replaced the older ones were vastly different, and the city went through a revolutionary renovation.

Name and Terminology

The name "Janghwa" is a literal Korean derivation word that means "Grand Civillization"; "jang (장, 壯)" as in grandeur, and "hwa (화, 華)" as in culture and civillization. This word was created by using the traditional system of combining two different Hanja letters for naming a city, and hence, Janghwa is not an actual word in the Korean language itself. The name "Janghwa" was selected over "Gwangsa (광사, 光砂 'bright desert')" in a poll done at June 19, 2015 by the vote of 10 over 6. It has been reported that a park located at C20 was to be named Gwangsa National Park, in which is controlled by by QueenSmae.

Tourism

The MesaPromenade

See MesaPromenade for full description.

Official logo of the MesaPromenade.

Now known to be the biggest shopping center in the entire MRT Server Worlds, the MesaPromenade is a colassal shopping alleyway filled with different varities of shops and brands, and is known to be a strong commercial district. Passing through the MesaPromenade is the MRT Mesa Line tracks itself, and above it are iconic Korean signs stating "장화특별시" (Janghwa Metropolitan City). This place is also known to be one of the oldest and most well-known regions of Janghwa City. The Mesa Promenade has been demolished during the reformation and the new one is currently under planning.

The ChakdocheonPromenade

The Chakdocheon Promenade is a promenade that was built along Chakdo River during the reformation. It is inspired from Cheonggyecheon which is a promenade located in Seoul. The promenade is a peaceful and natural place where many trees and a pagoda dedicated to Janghwa's founder Supykun are. The eastern part is now completed and fully accessible. The western part is being built.

Flag

The Sekjin Gi with Realism designed by RLcrafters.

The Sekjin Gi (Korean: 색진기, Hanja: 色進旗) is the official flag of Janghwa City, and is composed of a white background with black, gray, and light gray transitional square patterns on the bottom left corner.

The transitional color scheme from black to white signifies of how the dark ages of the city were or were to be fought so that the much greater brighter days are to come for the city in the future. The dark gray signifies adventurism, the light gray signifies confidence, and the white signifies hope. The diagonal pattern shows how the city does not go by its original rules, but is rather different and is willing to do new things for improvement.

Transportation

JanghwaGyotong

The entire transportation network inside the colossal city is taken care by a single government-oriented corporation named JanghwaGyotong (장화교통). Meaning 'JanghwaTransport' in Korean, they are the official authority over all regulations based of transportation inside the city, from buses and roads to ships and airports. Currently they are most well-known to be the main providing power of the jcBus system, and is also in charge of forming the two train stations Janghwa City serves of (Janghwa West Terminal Station/JWT, and Janghwa East Terminal Station/JET).

Before Supykun gave it away, Janghwa M.C. was developing a full-scale military entitled to do the job of defence and offense for the city. The new governement has decided in October 2016 that Janghwa would remain peaceful. Military is suspended until further notice.

The official name of the Janghwa Military was JanghwaGunsa (장화군사). It had three basic divisions, one motherboard division and one elite division:

  • JanghwaYukgun (장화육군)
