Borealia is a mayor ranked town on the Taiga Line extension. It focuses primarily maintaining the feel of a cozy and nostalgic winter community. It is still in active development, but has yet to hit any town rank yet. The town has no roads, and only uses cobblestone footpaths that weave between buildings, parks, and the terrain itself.

History

Borealia was founded soon after building was permitted on the Taiga Line extension, on October 1st, 2016. The station it is connected to ( T49  Borealia) has a grand total of four lines running through it. Borealia is Vulpicula's second city. The first thing to be constructed in the town was the "New Storalisburg" plaza. It circles around the west side of the station, and contains a total of four market stalls, several benches, and snow covered spruce trees that give way to the town itself. After the plaza was complete, other buildings were erected, such as the Yukon Building, the Town Hall (Cascadia Building), and a visitor's center.

On December 13th, 2016, Mayor Vulpicula purchased Kyoto from ModernArt, a town at the  T50  Foobar terminus. It was soon renamed to Ainu Province, and it is planned to be turned into a ski resort.

Tourism

Despite Borealia's minuscule size, there are already a couple of things to do in the town. The New Storalisburg plaza offers visitors a place to stretch their legs and visit the local businesses and market stalls which are open during the summer. The visitors center by the town hall offers free maps of the area to tourists, and there are plans designated areas for Snowshoeing, Ice Skating, and other winter activities.

Districts

Borealia currently only has one district, which is named the Skagway District, after Skagway, Alaska. The town hall, and any other current developments and structures, are found in this district. It is on the western side of the T49 station.

Climate

Borealia has a year round sub-arctic climate. Winters are long and cold, and Summers are short and mild. Yearly precipitation is usually fairly low, and most of what falls is in the form of snow. The coldest temperature ever recorded in Borealia is -38.5°C, which was measured on March 5th, 2013. The warmest ever recorded was 22.8°C, which was measured on August 9th, 2007. It is strongly advised that any visitors wear appropriate clothing to avoid risk of hypothermia.
