Founded in 1780 by Ruler1 of Franklin, Philadelphia is the current capitol of the nation of Franklin
FoundationEditThe land that would eventually become Philadelphia and the capitol of Franklin, was located in 1780 by self proclaimed ruler, Ruler1. Ruler1 believed that the land would be a suitable place to build on due to its relatively flat land and location to a natural harbor that would be useful for trade. Planning the city with some of his most trusted advisers, eventually Ruler1 was able to set plans in motion to build the great capitol. Work went slowly however, and the initial plans set forth by Ruler1 were not completed until the end of 1790. The majority of this was due to the fact that at this time, much of the work was being underfunded due to the costs of establishing the nation's military and economic system. Once completed, the capitol received a surge of citizens who built several hundred homes of the outskirts of the new capitol.
With the city's new rapid and expansive growth between its establishment in 1780 and the beginning of the reign of Ruler2 in 1801, it became apparent that the nation of Franklin could now successfully conduct trade with other nations. The only city that had so far been built with a natural harbor next to it, happened to be Philadelphia. The only resources in Franklin that continued to rapidly abundant, and still are, were oil and lead. Ruler2, aware of the value of such items, encouraged others to trade with Franklin by offering tariff free trade. Other nations apparently saw the value in such trade and began to trade marble, lumber, and many other items in exchange for the resources of Franklin. Even now under the leadership of Ruler4, Ruler2 Harbor, as it is now called, continues to be one of the busiest ports in the world bustling with trade and other ships.
