Whitechapel is a Premier town founded by _frozen on October 4, 2014, during the opening of the Gamma World. Its downtown is located near A11 Station in the northwest part of the New World. Whitechapel named after the London district and is situated on the shores of Lake Capricorn.

Whitechapel is divided into six districts, each with their own history and identity (including a former city, and a relocated town). Three of the districts has their own MRT services. Whitechapel District holds the main office core of Whitechapel, and surrounds A11 Station. Corrigan District, once its own city owned by yeamanator132 but merged into Whitechapel in January 2015, is located at A12 Station. Rivera District, which is the industrial core of the City, is located at A10 Station.

West of the Corrigan lies the Columbia District. A large portion of the Columbia District is also known as the Sports and Entertainment District, it hosts the Liverpool Tennis Center, BART Stadium, the Palladium Theater, Whitechapel Broadcasting Centre, and the Western Beach. Further west into the woods is the planned center of the Columbia District, with this area focused on being a residence-focused neighborhood with a small town center planned on Columbia Island. Northeast of the Rivera District is the Seneca District, a farming district with Sheepshead Lake its town center. The original Seneca Town was a large southern portion of the district which was bulldozed to build the Whitechapel Sky Harbor Airport. Into the wooded frontier to the east, Eastvale District will eventually be built.

By June 28th, 2015 Whitechapel was able to come to an agreement with adjourning towns to establish a firm border. The borders are marked by wool on the ground, with Whitechapel border colored as dark gray, while Radiance Square boundary is colored light blue and West Calbar colored light green. The other boundaries that currently has no border agreements are marked by the A94 freeway to the east, and the Seneca Canal to its northeast.
