City Overview

Post  Col. StaR on Mon Oct 18, 2010 2:50 pm

Juriah is the capital city for Desertia's central region, and the planet itself. It serves as the hub for most of the planet's financial and government interests.


Size and Structure:
Juriah encompasses 494.3 sq. km. of land, almost all of it urbanized in order to maximize the limited space the superstructure contains.

The majority of the city has been built underground in an experimental attempt to automate climate control on a city-wide basis; by removing the city from direct sunlight, and placing it under the cooler layers of the planet, they hoped to reduce eliminate any need for individual or city-wide climate controllers. The superstructure of the town is a combination of concrete reinforced with alloys, capable of withstanding over 4000 kg of pressure per square inch. While the structure holds the city's ceiling in place, it also removed any potential for the city's expansion, causing some to call to expand the structure in order to expand the city's borders.

The city's government is split into three separate divisions of X.E.M management, on a Sectoral, Regional, and Planetary scale. They are known to reside in their own sections of the X.E.M office establishment in the city that is known to rise like a spire and actually stands just as tall as one of the cities structures. The city itself as well as it's income economy and trade output is governed at the Sectoral level and headed by Juriah Sector Administrator- Thomas Shillings. The Central Region administration also resides in Juriah, headed by Central Region Administrator- Kevin Laurence. Meanwhile, the Planetary Administration holds holds dominance over Desertia in it's entirety under Desertia Planetary Administrator- Joshua Roebucks. It's been known that for quite some time, Roebucks has been up for replacement in his role as Planetary Administrator due to age and has said time and time again he intends to retire from politics. He has yet to act on these words however, and still remains in office in Juriah.

With a wealth of trade going through the town, Juriah has become the economic hotbed of activity for the planet. An estimated 783,000 credits are being earned and traded throughout the city every month, and an increasing demand for minerals only increases with time. Several corporations have set up sectoral headquarters within Juriah as outposts for maintaining control on their investments on the planet.

Juriah is one of the only towns on Desertia to still operate with a dedicated contingent of the Xenon Security Corps, who are stationed there to protect the core XEM facilities and personnel. Despite Close Endeavors' superiority in both numbers and capacity on the planet, they are under the expressed jurisdiction of the XSC and while allowed to operate a small contingency in the city, are limited in their security permissions to certain areas and are pressed under the authority of the XSC.

Population and Demographics:
The previous census in 2360 showed that Juriah's population has 482,957, and the most recent estimate places it within the 550,000 range.

Of the population, approximately 40% make less than 35,000 credits per year, 35% make between 35,001 and 55,000 credits per year, 20% make 55,001 to 75,000 per year, 4% make between 75,001 and 100,000 per year, and 1% make more than 100,001 per year.
