When Airplaneguy9 found out about this the next day, he sent Wenyangan troops to occupy the zone and declare it a nuclear testing site, and put barbed wire around the border. Nevertheless, soon Peacopolis got involved, then Shenghua, then Pixl, Marisol, and many other towns got involved in the island. While the island is officially called Macece Island, and was declared ownership by neither Kazeshima nor Wenyanga, but to Nansei-Gunto as a whole, it is now known as '''Grief Island'''. For half an hour, the island was littered with many wacky designs built by players. All involved decided to rollback the island after two days.

Soon afterwards, impressed at how half the players on at the time were contributing to Grief Island, Airplaneguy9 suggested a community town, which everyone could contribute to. This resulted in 'that could work' reactions from everyone. Determined to test his idea, Airplaneguy9 sent Yellowitcher to scout an island for a new community town. Yellow and Seshpenguin found an island 2000 blocks east of Wenyanga, and Yellow placed the very first block of the new town. As Grief Island died down (to an exasperated i____7d), people were encouraged to start building in Community Town. After thinking that NSG ('''N'''an'''S'''ei-'''G'''unto) meant New Singapore (referring to Lumeva), Airplaneguy9 thought that the town was named New Singapore. When Airplane started referring to the town as New Singapore, everyone else thought that the name was New Singapore too. The name was later confirmed to be '''New Singapore'''. After a majority vote of 100%, New Singapore was proclaimed as the new capital of Nansei-Gunto.[[File:NewSingapore13052020.png|thumb|New Singapore on 13 May 2020, barely five hours after its founding]][[File:PixlNewSingapore.png|thumb|Seshpenguin's 'Pixl Infrastructure Pledge' banner spawned many others from different towns such as Southoak, Sansvikk, Hagenau, Savage City, and Totem Beach.]]The town grew fast, getting a promenade, a marketplace, a TV and radio station, and even an official Housing and Development Board (Weier, ktkren777) and Director of Roads (Yellowitcher, self-proclaimed). However, one issue raised by EliteNeon was the possibility of being denied ranks due to there being no clear mayor. This sparked confusion as to who would be the mayor. Airplaneguy9 proposed elections to the position of Mayor of New Singapore. Despite this, it was agreed that mi_aquamarine would still be Governor of Nansei-Gunto.

New Singapore is a town located in Southwest Zeta, and is a community build founded on the 13th of May 2020. It is the fastest growing community build in the entire server. Though there is some debate as to who actually founded New Singapore, Yellowitcher placed the very first block. It is the capital of the Region of Nansei-Gunto.

Etymology

New Singapore is named after the real life country of Singapore, one of the most famous nations on the MRT simply because of how its playerbase has changed life on the MRT for the better.

The city was named so after confusion between mi_aquamarine and Airplaneguy9, when mi_aquamarine said NSG (NanSei-Gunto), which Airplaneguy9 took to be New Singapore (inside joke referring to how the Region of Lumeva was going to take over Singapore and name it Lumeva). After he started using the New Singapore name for the city, everyone present thought the name of the city was New Singapore. As a result, the name 'New Singapore' stuck as the name for the city.

Other colloquial names include Community Town, Mojangland (for its Mojangitis) and New Hong Kong (skyscrapers everywhere).

Before New Singapore

For context, this is what Nansei-Gunto was before May 12. Back then, the Epsilonian Republic province of Nansei-Gunto, founded on 24 April 2020, was only four towns and four members strong. Wenyanga was Airplaneguy9's town on the coast of the mainland that had reached Councillor and then stopped growing, Shahai was a small town by Weier on a south island that was slowly but steadily growing, Kazeshima, the largest of the four and i____7d's town, was growing at an alarming rate and itched for expansion, and Shenghua, which was owned by mi_aquamarine and at the time was memed greatly for its lack of infrastructure. It was also the capital of Nansei-Gunto, as it had been capital to Nansei-Gunto's predecessor, the Autonomous Republic of Shenghua.
