Athensburgh is an economically independent city-building, occupying the area that encompasses the Attic Basin and the other areas around it. Its construction is the largest in size since it is the first Burgh to be rebuilt. A Burgh is a network of fortress towns. In this context they are known for their security, their zero unemployment and the economic prosperity they offer their residents. The economic crisis has undoubtedly become a milestone for this implementation, while multinational corporations have seized the opportunity to invest on build and unspoiled land over the years. As a result, Athens was demolished giving birth to a new land for the construction of the city of Athensburgh.
