Where everything comes together.
Central City is the largest city in Central Prefecture, DesCha Central, and the largest city in DesCha DesCha . It is also DesCha's densest city; a 2010 estimate put its population between 2-3 million inhabitants (the largest of any city in the country). Central City is classified as a 'world city', and a key city in the Asia-Pacific region. The main airport serving Central City is Camden International Airport, and its main port is Quay Portside.
CultureAs a multicultural metropolis, Central City enjoys great variety in its culture while remaining mostly free of ghettos. Instead, most districts tend to promote themselves as a reflection of one or another of the city's cultural anchors, like Gaudia's annual Portuguese Parade or Handel's celebration of Oktoberfest.
Entertainment and performing artsCentral City is the current forefront for cultural development in the arts, with DesCha's two renowned performance halls (the [[Worthington Theatre]] and [[Kajiura Hall]]) both located in the Downtown district. The Central Dance and Theatre Company is headquartered in Bell; numerous other performance troupes call Central City home. Due to the centrality of the various film and television studios in the city, most production companies also base their offices within the area.
Sport and outdoor activitiesAssociation football is DesCha's national sport, and representation in Central City is numerous, featuring two top tier teams and countless semi-professional and amateur clubs. Besides soccer, baseball and athletics are represented heavily. Central City's parks system encourages inhabitants to engage in numerous outdoor activities; a 2011 survey put the number of residents within the city that participate in one or more outdoor activities as 86%. Central City is friendly towards bicycle-users; the street layout throughout many districts contains specialized lanes for cyclists and pedestrian walkers. h5. Media Central City is represented by two broadsheet newspapers. The Central Gazette is one of DesCha's oldest newspapers, having been in circulation since the 1880s. Its competitor, the Centralia Post, has operated since 1914. Below them are a myriad of small tabloids. The City Monthly is a monthly magazine whose primary focus is Central City. Four national commercial television stations (MMN, CSM, R11, and D20) as well as the two government-managed national broadcast stations ([[DCB]] and [[RBS]]) are headquartered in Central City. Though their broadcast towers are located further away from the city, their administrative headquarters are scattered between the Camden, Kenner, and Downtown districts. Paid television services (such as those of FOX and SUN) are available throughout Central City and both companies are headquartered in Central City as well. Myriad radio stations base themselves in the Central City area. Chief among these are rival stations 91.7 and 101.2 on FM, and numerous chat and talkback stations on AM. Since 2004, all broadcast transmission in Central City has been digital. This extends to radio stations, all of whom supply full programming via DAB+ digital radio. h4. Government Central City's eighteen districts are represented by a councillor, forming a legislative assembly led by the Mayor of Central City, who is elected from the ruling party of the legislature. District elections are constitutionally held every four years. The legislative assembly of Central City is subject to that of the governor of DesCha Central, who is in turn subject to the federal government. h4. Infrastructure Central City's architecture has been carefully planned where possible, uniting all eighteen districts with a careful combination of unified utilities, extensive public transportation and strategic placement of large roads. h5. Health systems Due to federal legislation, health systems in Central City are mostly public, although specialised care is still available via private companies. Local government funds all public health initiatives through tax revenue. h5. Transport Central City is still partially reliant on automotive transport, although private car ownership in the city is amongst the lowest in the region. Overland rail connects to Central City mainly through [[Centralia Station|Centralia]] and [[Gaudia Station|Gaudia]] stations, and an extensive [[Central City Metro|metro transit system]] serves as the primary method of transport for the commuters, with an equally extensive bus network filling in any transport gaps. h5. Utilities Central City boasts its use of renewable energy, with wind and solar plants less than 50k from the city centre. Additionally, the nation's only nuclear fusion power plant feeds enough power into the grid that Central City (and, as a consequence, all other cities in DesCha Central) are actually in surplus for power availability, despite projected growth. h4.
