The Balkan City Metropolitan Area (Balkan City Metro) is the capital of Asgarnieu. Balkan City Metro is also a Special Autonomous Region in Asgarnieu.




Balkan City was founded in 1552 and was the 473rd Incorporated City/Town in the infantile nation. Due to Balkan City's geographical location (the center of the nation), it became the central trade hub of the nation and outlying areas. The city was incorporated with just 23,543 residents in 1752. The Downtown area was fully completed in 1559, and was comprised of 8 general stores, 4 clothing shoppes, and various other stores. When the nation became The Holy Empire of Asgarnieu, a large castle was construced just south of Downtown. It became the Capital of The Holy Empire later that year. In 1729, the city became the capital of the Province of Druids (Druid Province). It still had not become the capital of the County of Reginald. In 1744 it became the County Seat. Soon after that, several hundred-thousand immigrants and citizens moved to the city, due to its high income and low taxation rates. The city reached a population of 1,000,000 in 1779. It became the largest city in the nation. Since then, the population has climbed exponentially and has not faltered. It is still the largest city in the nation. In November of 2006, it became a Special Autonomous Region of Asgarnieu.
