I just need more time!
I am currently in the process of putting ecumenopolis inspiration pictures into a gallery. Bear with me, computers don't generally like me, I'm surprised I'm doing this well. Current Mood: tired

Attention potential governors check out kraibald's (my) userpics for more ecumenopolis inspiration.
more about Promacon
The seat of government is located at the center of the world library. The world Library is a metropolitan sized library containing every fact and fiction, truth and lie that anyone has ever deemed fit to put on paper, both for Doxiadis, and countless other worlds. The seat of government contains the office of the global overlord. His sole purpose is to appoint district governors, and mediate problems between districts. He has a legion of travelling mediators to help him with the latter.
Also located at the seat of government is the district court, and high court. The district court handles crimes and problems committed in Promacon. The High Court deals with more global issues, and inter-district crimes. The philosophy of the district court is that any crime can be traced to a lack of common sense somewhere. Those found to be lacking common sense if not morals, are subject to berating of scathing sarcasm the likes of which would put Dr. Gregory House to shame. This continues until the accused is reduced to a whimpering pile of contrition. Then the court proceeds to sentencing.
The library is tended to by a race of beings whose sole purpose is to tend the library. They average about seven feet tall. They rarely speak with those outside their own race. They are referred to as The Librarians, because noone knows what they call themselves. Their lifespan is unknown to outsiders, but each one knows where in the library anything is (or should be) located, off the top of their head. It is therefore assumed, that each lives at least long enough to memorize every nook and cranny of the city-sized library.

rules and clarifications
To be a member, is to automatically be a district governor. Members are encouraged, but not required to construct their district as a description of a physical manifestation of their own personal culture, likes and dislikes. If you wish to use this forum, to address the technological, scientific, and/or magical issues required to upkeep and maintain an ecumenopolis, feel free. You are a braver person than me. Feel free to bring in any aspect of popular culture you see fit. In other words if you want to have the Rolling Stones put on a concert, or Gordon Gekko run a business in your district, feel free. The whole point is to get a better understanding of your likes, and dislikes. The only bans will be on real world religon and politics. After all this should be an escape from the real world. When posting a description of your district, please tag it to the name of your district, for organizational purposes.

This is the initial posting of Ecumenoplis. My district will be called Promacon. As I am the site maintainer person thingie, Promacon will act as the capitol. The center of the government is located in the middle of a Chicago sized library. To get to the center, one must negotiate a labyrinth of bookshelves, containing every work of fiction, and history ever written. The architecture is largely victorian. I will post more details later, if anyone even gives a rat's rear end about this community. Let me know if you think this is boring or bizarre, creative, or crappy, witty or a waste.
