The Serpentine Liveability Index (SLI) is an index to rate the standard of living of towns and cities. It is named after the city of the founder, sheimoria.


Each category has a score out of 10, and all categories are tallied to give an overall score out of 100.

Overall Realism

This category measures the practicality of the city. If a city makes sense in real life, the mayor will score higher in this category.

Public Service

This category measures the infrastructure of public services in place, such as town halls, hospitals, police and schools. If public services are easy to find, access and utilise in a city and are informative and helpful to visitors, the mayor will score higher in this category.


This category measures the connectivity to and from the city as well as within the city through various forms of transit such as road, bus, train, air and sea. If the city is easy to navigate due to the abundance of transportation means and their ability to serve almost any part of the city, the mayor will score higher in this category.

Urban Planning

This category measures the organisation of the city's infrastructure and road layout. If a city is easy to navigate due to clear communication via signage and usable pavements and roads, and if the city is properly split into distinct districts that serve a purpose, such as a residential district, a business district and an industrial district, the mayor will score higher in this category.


This category measures the city's ability to provide housing for residents. If a city has abundant housing infrastructure and they are easy to access and utilise, and if the city is home to many residents of different ranks, the mayor will score higher in this category.


This category measures the investment of businesses in the city. If many franchises of wide variety invest in the city and are mostly relevant, such as restaurants, stores and company headquarters, the mayor will score higher in this category.


This category measures the city's ability to incorporate environment into the city. If a city fits with its biome aesthetically and practically, flora is abundant throughout the city to provide greenery and parks break up the sight of buildings in the city, the mayor will score higher in this category.


This category measures the design of infrastructure in the city. If there is a wide variety of designs in theme and age across buildings and are not just aesthetically pleasant but realistic and practical as well, the mayor will score higher in this category.

Culture and Tourism

This category measures the strength of the city's identity. If a city has a strong culture with a rich and detailed history as well as cultural aspects infused with infrastructure in the city, such as having different types of shops and restaurants to promote the city's culture, and if the city makes efforts in promoting its culture such as through museums and monuments, the mayor will score higher in this category.


This category measures the importance of the city in the wider MRT community. If a city serves the MRT server by specialising in various purposes, such as a hub for intergovernmental organisations or an entertainment hub with stadiums and theatres, or offer something unique to the server to stand out from other cities, such as being heavily invested in military through a strong military base, the mayor will score higher in this category.


Feel free to list your town if you would like to be rated. List your town as follows: Name - Mayor

Higher ranked cities will be given priority to be surveyed before the lower ranked cities. Cities are sorted out by ranks for organisation of data to be released in reports. Each city will be given an overall score and scores for each category, as well as a collective remark from the committee about the city, stating areas for improvement as well as areas of excellence.
