Delhi Sprawl

The Delhi Sprawl is a megalopolis located within the nation of the Republic of India on the planet Earth. With a population of over 60 million residents, it is the capital of India. Delhi has long held a position of importance within India, being the capital of many ancient empires that inhabited the region of the planet. The first recorded history of a settlement in the region is from the 700s CE. Since then, the city has been razed and rebuilt numerous times. The modern incarnation of the city was founded in 1911 CE when the colonial elite of the region decided to move the capital of their administration there, naming the city New Delhi.

Throughout the 20th and the first half of the 21st century, New Delhi became a major economic and political hub for India. It substantially grew in population, becoming one of the largest cities on Earth. However, beginning in the 2060s CE, poverty and a lack of economic opportunity became widespread within the poorer districts of the city. The industrial zones of the city were by and large abandoned - dozens of square kilometres of industrial areas were considered too expensive to demolish. This state of affairs continued to plague the Delhi Sprawl, but it also continued to remain one of the largest cities on the planet. The commercial zones of the city remained affluent during this time, and the Lakshmi Commerce Tower was the tallest building on Earth for the better part of the 22nd century. By the beginning of the 23rd century, efforts had been made to clean up the Delhi Sprawl's industrial zones, and build a green residential zone in its place.
