Malodin (Chinese characters: 摩搂天; YinYangiese fengin: Múliúdēn) is the capital and the largest city of YinYangia. It has the lowest crime rate and is the cleanest city in the world. It is also the very first city in YinYangia to not be constructed by the government.

It is technically not part of any state, since it is a city on its own right, according to the constitution's Act 37, stating that the capital of the country must not be part of any state and shall be independent. It has the second most skyscrapers per capita, with 7 skyscrapers per sq mi (km²).

The city is a host to many events, such as the 2002 Summer Olympics, 2016 FIFA World Cup, etc.

It is also one of the most visited cities in the world. Up to 10 million visitors arrive to Malodin every year.

Etymology

Malodin came from the YinYangiese term "Muliuden", which means skyscraper. It was commonly anglified to Molutane.

The name was officially changed to its Tottmified version, Malodin, in 1981, and still retained that way until today.

History

Gawudzan Republic era (1850-1936)

In 1850, Gawudzan architect Yau Tsungle wanted to make a city full of skyscrapers. He was known for designing tall buildings.

He was given a 7 square kilometer land in 1852. He designed several buildings for now. After their completion in 1855, many companies started to move their headquarters from their original places, and many rich families moved here.

The city was named Muliuden by Michael Hung, one of the residents of the city, in 1860. Many people started to settle and the city quickly grew to an economic and residental powerhouse.

Gawudzan Republic's government moved their capital from Tawzihila in 1900. Tottomics started to immigrate to the city in 1910s.

Toralaq Republic era (1936-1999)

Even after the Tottomic-supremacist rebels overthrew the YinYangiese government in 1936, the capital still remained Muliuden until 1949, when it was moved to Feederet. Muliuden still remained the financial and economic center of YinYangia.

In 1954, a replica of the pre-Islamic Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, Turkey, the St. Sophia Church, has finished its construction after three decades. It is one of the most iconic landmarks of Muliuden. It was closed by the communist government in 1956, but was reopened after two decades.

Muliuden's name was Tottomified to "Malodin" in 1960.

YinYangia-era (1999-present)

The capital was shifted back to Malodin after the expulsion of all Tottomic people. The city is still known for its high-rise buildings.

Geography

Before 1852, the city was entirely a grassland, which was part of the Dautsu Grasslands, now, only 7% of the city's area is a grassland, which has been converted to a park. For environmental reasons, it is illegal to cut the trees there, and the company caught doing it will be fined 1% of its entire economy.

The city is located approximately four kilometers away from the coast. The Lauhwe River flows to the north of the city, which divides it from Targaad.
