[QUOTE=ThatHippyMan;27634000]I'm betting on "Mega-Awesome City"[/QUOTE] Well, it is China we're dealing with, so if you fit the words [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huolongjing"]fire, or dragon[/URL] in there somewhere, it could probably work.

[quote]twice the size of Wales with a population of 42 million.[/quote] So twice the size, but over 14 times populated? D: That is pretty fudging awesome.
42 million in one city twice the size of Wales? There are countries bigger than that with less people.
[QUOTE=ThatHippyMan;27636481] You do realize that those buildings are still empty, and more are being built, correct?[/QUOTE] Yes, and I'm sure the PRC has an upcoming 5 Year Plan to do something about this.
I hate cities.

Entire city nations, what an amazing concept.

Travelling to your mates house on the other side of the city would take a day or two
The Endless City. ... Oh look I just named it, now translate that to Chinese.
It'll be pretty cool when they inevitably decide to split from China to create the first 100% city-nation.

Remember the movie Doomsday, where the people were cramped so close together, that it created the Reaper virus and killed millions? I see something similar happening to this new city. And with Asia combating SARS, the Avian Flu and whatever else, there's no telling what could happen.
[QUOTE=ironman17;27631178]Whoa, China's really trying to solve their overcrowding problems. Guess that means THEY get to build Mega City One. (if you don't get the reference, I Dreddfully pity you) But in all seriousness, they should call it Pearl Delta, or Pearl City.[/QUOTE] pearr shitty

Holy crap, that's as big as Alaska

Misread as 42 million cities. I was understandably concerned.
They should just call it Megalopolis.

The good thing about restrictive governments like China is that they can do ballsy shit like this.
Good job China, putting a giant skin cancer on the planet.
Who will they crush in order to construct this city? I imagine the countless people living between these cities in smaller dwellings will not be pleased to have imminent domain claimed and their property seized. What of city transit? Or local government? How do they plan to mitigate the severe smog which will be produced by such a massive number of people living in such a small area? Do they have sufficient power plants which aren't powered by coal? Good god the list just goes on and on. This is what a BAD GOVERNMENT does when it gets rich. This is, in all likelihood, evil, shortsighted, and ignorant beyond all measure. [editline]24th January 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=Turtlecake;27642899]This picture is relevant.

Somehow I doubt that they all just gave up their buildings.
