Cake Town's First Mayor, teh_mayor
Cake Town was established as the founding city of Great Pwnage. In its early days, Cake Town was built around the wheat harvesting industry that thrived all around it, though very quickly the commercial sector of the city started to expand with the success of the country, and over time the city has become a major metropolis.
Cake Town is entirely land-locked in mid-western North America. The terrain is mostly flat as well, much like the surrounding area.
As is common in the midwestern plains, Cake Town experiences hot summers and cold winters, with frequest tornadoes.
The largest employer in Cake Town is the Great Pwnage Armed Forces, which is based in Cake Town and has its largest base there. The outlying areas of Cake Town still continue their wheat production, while the downtown economy is based off of commercial services, high-tech industry, and construction. Also, the city is the financial hub of the nation, home to several banking sectors and headquarters of national enterprise Great Pwnage Imperial Securities, which owns many of the major corporations in the country.
