'''Fulfwotz ''' (commonly referred to as '''Fulf''') is the capital and largest city and the cosmopolitan capital of in the [[New Sammichian Empire]]. It Officially settled around 200 PRY, Fulfwotz is one of the most populated city oldest established cities in the Shireworld. Since the 19th century, it has been one of the Shire’s foremost centers of finance, commerce, fashion, and the arts, and an international economic hub. Sitting in forms the middle cultural and geopolitical heart of the [[Demmatrodine Region]]. In 2017, the city acts as Fulfwotz had a major shipping center between the Demmatrodine and the rest GDP of the Shire. Fulfwotz is known for its diversity and distinct media-centric culture$720 billion, fueled by the presence one of the [[Follywood Entertainment Company]], which dominates highest in the film, television, world and music industries. Fulfwotz lies in Seraphina Valley, a major coastal basin bordered on three sides by making it among the AlturasShire’s most economically-Santos mountainsproductive cities.
Originally home to Founded around 200 PRY by scouts of the indigenous Seraphaho ancient Enpeecee tribestate of Mekjloka, the site was established as a colony of the ancient Lilladonian Empire around 200 PRY. The colony, named Fauna, Fulwojka flourished for years and became an important asset thanks to its proximity to the Empire because of the vast veins of gold underneath ore and fertile land in the valley floorarid Demmatrodine. In the northwestShire, the powerful empire of [[Old Sammichian EmpireXamichia]] grew jealous and sought , threatened economically by the closure of many of its most profitable mines, laid its eyes on Fulwojka as a means to acquire the town from the Lilladonianssolve its economic troubles. When diplomacy failedIn 122 PRY, Empress Flux acquired the Sammichians annexed the city in colony after a display bloody massacre of brutality and bloodiness which resulted in its inhabitants. Thrennesized to Fulvux, it soon became the deaths most prosperous region of over 2,000 Lilladonians the empire and remains would replace Sarrimus as one of the most infamous atrocities in Shire history. The mines were run dry soon after the occupation, so the Sammichians were forced to rely on other forms of tradede facto capital. After Following the abandonment Great Epiphany of Ceriumuse Empress Flux and the collapse of the Old Sammichian EmpireXamichia in 58 PRY, Fulfwotz became an independent kingdom until 1929, when it was incorporated into reformed as the capital Kingdom of Fulfwotz under the [[New Sammichian Empire]] by [[Emperor Sammich control of the Magnificent]]Ich Dynasty of monarchs.
The Over the course of the 2,000-year lifespan of the Kingdom of Fulfwotz, the city is divided into seven distinct boroughswould serve as the epicenter of both Fulfwotzian and Sammichian affairs, also functioning as the capital of the democratic First, Second, which are further divided into numerous districts and neighborhoodsThird Chancelleric Republics and the reformed constitutional monarchy. After the massive territorial buildup by King Phemenses III and King Sammus II, the Kingdom became embroiled in the [[Great War]] in 1927. Fulfwotz sits in served as the headquarters for Overtaker High Command and was the nerve center of its coalition. In the latter part of the war, the city became the arid Demmatrodine Region target of highly-aggressive bombing campaigns and borders Demmatrodine Shrub Country. The city is a prime example air raids, destroying much of the ancient city planning until it was outright occupied and maintenance, being meticulously maintained through rendered the capital of the detested Fulfwotz City Planning Office (FCPO)Liberator-controlled New Fulfwotzian Republic. It is also a developing case After the end of urban sprawlthe war, housing roughly 11 million people in its metropolitan area and having one of King Sammus reconsolidated the largest urban footprints in Kingdom into the ShireNew Sammichian Empire, with Fulfwotz still serving as its administrative core.

== History ==
=== Lilladonian Era ===
[[File:OMG.jpg|400px|thumb|right|A Lilladonian painting of Castle Mugg, along with several Faunite nobles, in the Fulfwotz Museum of Antiquity.]] Long after the disappearance of the Seraphaho people, the burgeoning Lilladonian Empire began exploring the uncharted southwestern lands of the Shire. Scouts discovered the Seraphina Valley, which scientists suspect was much more fertile during that time. Around 200 PRY, a small coastal colony was established, named Fauna, after the daughter of Lilldonian ruler Emperor Hommel. It wasn't soon after the establishment of Fauna that large ore veins rich in gold and iron were found directly underneath the colony. Generating huge profit from trading these precious commodities, Fauna grew exponentially and became known throughout the civilized Shire as the 'golden village' and a valuable trading partner. Meanwhile, in the Sammichian capital of Ceriumuse, the [[Old Sammichian Empire]], brought to its knees from the inside by feuding and hostility within the aristocracy, became interested in acquiring Fauna. Numerous diplomatic offers were made in exchange for the town on part of the Sammichians, but they were all rebuked by the Lilladonians. Angry and desperate, the ruling Empress Flux resorted to extreme measures to acquire Fauna.
==== Night of Bones ====
=== Sammichian Era ===
With Fulfwotz in complete Sammichian control, trade revenue helped lift the Empire out of its social, economic, and political respite. However, public interest in Fulfwotz and better opportunities incited a mass exodus from Ceriumuse which lasted around two decades. In 110 PRY, the estimated population of Fulfwotz was 3,500; in 90 PRY, it was 16,000. By 80 PRY, Ceriumuse had a population less than that of Fauna post-occupation. The ancient city, among the first civilizations in the Shire and an extraordinary collection of Sammichian antiquity, was unofficially abandoned once Empress Flux and the [[Sammichian Imperial ChancelloryChancellery]] took up permanent residence in Fulfwotz. Not soon after, the elderly Empress Flux realized the depth of her mistakes and not wanting her children to follow in her footsteps, decided that the exorbitant imperialism characteristic to the Old Sammichian Empire was wrong; after experiencing this epiphany, she invoked an Ultimatum with the Chancellory Chancellery (one of five unconditional decrees a monarch can pass without Chancellory Chancellery approval) and completely dissolved the Empire in 58 PRY. Sovereignty was returned to former Sammichian territories and Fulfwotz was established as an independent kingdom, known as the Kingdom of Fulfwotz.
==== Civil War ====
After about 2,000 years of relative peace and isolationism from the outside world, the Kingdom flourished and experienced a renaissance which saw the construction of great projects, such as [[Saint Flafbenz Holy Cathedral]], the High Chancellor's Mansion, [[DePrey Institute]], and Corrompere Grand Courthouse (also known as Sammichian Supercourt). However, under the rule of King Drefnex, Fulfwotz began revealing itself again to the Shire, annexing nearby villages and claiming territory, often in places that were given sovereignty by Empress Flux. This period of expansion began in the late 1800's, yet reached its height during the reign of King Sammich in the 1920's. Unrest in the southwestern Shire grew as the Kingdom asserted its presence in villages throughout the [[Demmatrodine Region]]. The expansion was halted after the considerable forces of Fulfwotz were driven from a minor fortified town, Fort Batmania. Believing the Kingdom to have been weakened, other nations began laying claim to Fulfwotzian villages under the impression that the Kingdom was not strong enough to defend them. Angry and humiliated, the vindictive Kingdom declared war on the town to reassert its power with full approval of both the Emperor and the ChancelloryChancellery. The Declaration of War was signed in Castle Mugg on March 25th, 1927.
Many nations in the Shire condemned the Kingdom's actions, claiming that annihilating a town for refusing to be controlled by an outside force was unjust and wrong; they quickly rushed to the side of Fort Batmania, announcing their intentions to treat any attack on Fort Batmania as an attack on themselves. Dubbed "Liberators", they not only sought to protect the town, but also strip Fulfwotz of its power and end Shire imperialism. Meanwhile, other nations, mainly key trading partners and allies of Fulfwotz, realized that the consequences of Fulfwotz being disenfranchised would be devastating. Trading partners who relied on business with the Kingdom would see their economies ruined, and allies who depended on Fulfwotz protection would be severely limited in their ability to defend their nations. Others simply did not wish to see imperialism ended. They sided with Fulfwotz, and were referred to as "Overtakers" by the Liberators, a term which they embraced.
Fulfwotz made impressive victories with the Overtakers in the beginning of the war, but soon the Liberators outnumbered their forces and engaged them in battles throughout the Shire in order to lure defenses away from the city of Fulfwotz. After the Battle of Venezia, on Christmas Eve, 1928, Liberators under the command of the visionary General Tumerik of Knavobuki successfully occupied an unprotected Fulfwotz. King Sammich and members of the Chancellory Chancellery Council were evacuated to [[Niflheim Palace]], and Provisional King Maltese was granted full authority of the city. Life was altered drastically for the Fulfwotzians; loyalists incited riots and extreme unrest throughout the city, while Liberator sympathizers attempted to retain some semblance of a normal life under King Maltesemartial law, who was noted to be relatively benign and justor helped Liberators perform duties across the city. Some Fulfwotzians claimed to have been terrorized by Liberator troops, although only few of the many accounts were proven to be true.
With a weakened army and the center of Overtaker command occupied, the Overtakers officially surrendered to the Liberators and drafted the Treaty of Niflheim on May 24th, 1929. The treaty outlined points such as:
*The Kingdom of Fulfwotz may not annex any town that refuses its rule
*All trade embargoes placed on opposing nations by Fulfwotz must be lifted unless they existed before the war
*Restitution must be given to Fulfwotzian families who had been truthfully terrorized by Liberator troops
=== Declaration The treaty also saw the creation of War ===During the early 1900's, when the [[Imperial ShadowShire United Nations]] was first being cast across the southwestern Shire, the Kingdom of Fulfwotz had begun its aggressive annexation of all nearby towns and villages, prompting nearby settlements that had not yet been annexed an organization which aims to militarize themselves promote cooperation between nations and refuse Fulfwotz rulemaintaining international peace. Yet many settlements were outmatched by It is comprised of delegates from almost every nation in the kingdom's forcesShire, and were forced assigns a monitor to submit or have their village razed every member state in order to the groundensure that international law is not being breached and to prevent war from occurring again. HoweverThe Fulfspyre, one unnamed village under a 237-foot monument in the rule Theater District of Count Batman Fulfwotz, was particularly strong in terms built to commemorate the loss of defensive strength and position, and life during the kingdom's forces were not able to breach Civil War. On the settlement. Word spread quickly that very day the blossoming Kingdom of Fulfwotz could not even conquer a mere villagetreaty was signed, and other growing nations quickly swept in, claiming a considerable amount of towns that were under King Sammich consolidated all Fulfwotz control, believing that territories into the kingdom was not as strong as previously thought. Outraged, embarrassed[[New Sammichian Empire]], and a little smaller, the kingdom declared war on the village, allowing it to use ennobled himself as much force as necessary to conquer and destroy the villageEmperor.
The Declaration === Imperial Era ===Now a legitmate Empire, the New Sammichian Empire began a campaign of War was signed on consensual annexation (usually augmented by bribes or threats), and repairing relations with nations formerly aligned with the morning Liberators. The city itself experienced a massive amount of March 25th, 1927, in growth post-war; all boroughs aside from [[Fulfwotz Proper]] and [[Castle MuggPinecone Village]]were not present until after 1929. There was Fulfwotz became a large amount of unrest in global economic powerhouse, but during this time entered the Shire afterwardsDecadence, a period which lasted from the early 1930's and many believed arguably still continues today. During this time, the possible destruction already unethical nature of a town that fought to remain independent the Empire was evil enhanced as crime skyrocketed in the city and unjustthe [[Fulfwotz Aristocracy]] began infiltrating the Chancellery to promote their policies. Many sided with The era also saw the rise of the villagefilm industry, and which until the late 1920's had only existed as silent films. Fulfwotz became a popular spot for the industry, because at the Liberatorstime, seeking to not only allow the village camera technology used to live film was patented in peacethe Central Shire, but to completely dissolve they could not reach the Kingdom of Fulfwotz, and end Shire imperialismfar-flung city. The Liberators represented independence weather was also optimal; warm and peacesunny, it compensated for the camera's inability to shoot in dark areas. It became the capital of the film industry, and is commonly referred to as the "good" sidefirst film studio, Calpernia Pictures, was opened in 1932.
After hearing that one The 50's were spotted with the development of wide-scale organized crime within the main goals was the dissolve city, most notably the kingdom[[Xan Clan]], many nations who participated in and relied on heavy trade with Fulfwotz realized that if or the kingdom was to be eradicated, they would lose massive amounts Cattivo family. An assortment of gangs began carving poorer areas of profit and possibly be plunged Fulfwotz into an economic depressionterritory. Others sided with Fulfwotz not necessarily because of trade, but because if imperialism Such activity was to be globally outlawed, they would be weakened severelyfueled by the almost nonexistent gun policies and an arguably ineffective police force. This faction was named Scheming lasted until the Overtakerslate 1960's, representing imperialist interests and expansion at any cost. They were widely considered when the [[Second Plague]] began spreading across the "bad" sideShire.
=== Occupation of Fulfwotz = Second Plague ====The plague, which originated from [[Athitica]], rampaged through the Shire, killing and infecting a vast amount of Shirefolk. Fulfwotz was relatively quick to act, shutting down its borders and imposed a quarantine on the entirety of the outside world. Researchers at [[DePrey Institute]] were compelled to remain inside the building and work on a vaccine utilizing their invaluable and advantageous resources. The city was successful in preventing its contamination for a while, but it soon fell after migratory birds carrying the [[''Yersinia Pulex'']] strain migrated to the Demmatrodine Region and infected Fulfwotz. Full-blown anarchy ravaged Fulfwotz after Emperor Sammich was evacuated, and an estimated 2 million were killed in Fulfwotz alone (about half of its population at the time). Scientists locked inside DePrey Institute worked tirelessly to develop the cure to ''Yersinia Pulex''. The creation of the vaccine was a memorable instance of international cooperation and teamwork, as the participating scientists came from nations all over the Shire. The cure was successfully engineered and distributed across the Shire by airlifting them via specialized handling teams in 1970.
After ==== Fulflet Coup ====In 1999, the bloody Battle New Imperial Communist Administration (NICA), an independent political faction under the leadership of VeneziaCedon Wexfield, almost all of Fulfwotz's military was stationed outside of covertly gained support amongst the kingdom, fighting and fending off Liberatorslower class in [[Fulfton]]. On December 24thMay 12th, Christmas Eve, 1928, a Liberator force of 5,000 under in the command poorer areas of revered General Tumerik of Knavobuki moved in on the undefended city, easily occupying it an uprising was orchestrated, assisted by an unidentified paramilitary group believed to be hired by NICA. Taken by sunrisesurprise, and with most [[Fulfwotz Imperial Guard]] forces absent on exercises, Christmas Day. Although many Liberators rejoicedNICA, many others claimed that occupation was exactly what they were fighting againstthe paramilitary group, and Liberator support wavered after many unproven yet widespread accounts of atrocities performed by the Liberator troops within NICA-aligned citizens easily targeted and stormed various important government centers throughout the city fell on , such as the ears of Shirefolk. One Fulfwotzian claimed that a group of five Liberators broke into his homeChancellery, assaulted his wifethe IIA Headquarters, killed his sonDePrey Institute, and ran off with jewelry Castle Mugg. Many officials and family heirlooms. This citizens fled the city, but by sunrise Fulfwotz was afterwards proven true, along placed under complete lockdown and communications with many other accounts of terrorismthe Shire were severed.
Fulfwotzian life during In the Liberator occupation two months that communications from Fulfwotz remained silent, it was altered drastically, with martial law being declared by Provisional King Maltese after severe unrest revealed from Fulflet documents that government officials who remained in the city and riots within members of the city. The historic [[Abyssinia HotelFulfwotz Aristocracy]] in [[Pinecone Village]] was the site of numerous mass murders after it was turned into a Liberator Command Centerwere executed, and proprietors Georges & Norma Abyssin other dissenters were convicted of over 90 counts of murder. It was said that they poisoned the water, and blamed it on the claim that the filtration system was no longer functioning since the occupation. The claim was discovered sent to be false, and secretly-constructed work camps deep within the couple was executedDemmatrodine Region.
==Geography = Surrender =''See also: [[Demmatrodine Region]]''=== Cityscape ===Fulfwotz is divided into seven distinct boroughs, many of which were independent communities before being annexed into Fulfwotz. These boroughs are then further split into districts, usually based around one distinguishing feature (e.g. Foie Gras Opera House in the Theater District).
With The city is split into the center of Overtaker power occupiedfollowing boroughs: [[Fulfwotz Proper]], [[Feverly Hills]], and a severely weakened army[[Pinecone Village]], the Overtakers officially surrendered. After threatening to use nuclear weaponry[[Veneziana]], both sides recognized the implications of Mutual Assured Destruction[[Frentwood]], and the [[Niflheim TreatyFulfton]] was drawn up in , and [[Niflheim PalaceSandy Springs]]. Some major agreements of the treaty included:
*The Kingdom of Fulfwotz will release its grip on any village that refuses its rule=== Overview ===*The Kingdom of Fulfwotz may continue Due to exist as long as future annexations are agreed to by both parties*Both sides must dispose the age of nuclear weaponrythe city, allowing the roads are laid out in a maximum of 10 warheads per nation*The [[Shire United Nations]] will be created to monitor winding and irregular pattern, which easily span the rugged and maintain peace throughout hilly terrain. Like almost all other cities in the Shire*All trade embargoes placed on opposing nations by , Fulfwotz must be lifted unless has never adapted to the embargo existed before the war*Restitution must be given to Fulfwotzian families terrorized by Liberator troops, on part use of any nation formerly aligned with the Liberators*All nations along with Fulfwotz will be assigned an officer to monitor government activity automobiles and report continues to the Shire United Nations*Any research of Weapons of Mass Destruction in any Shire institution must be disclosed a pedestrian city, although many Fulfwotzians own scooters or mopeds to traverse the Shire United Nationscity; the intracity railway is also utilized to cross larger distances.
After The city is probably best known for its established and homogenous half-timber structures, which have lasted since Lilladonian times and continue to exist as the preferred building style. Some buildings in the treaty was signed on May 24thOldetown district of Fulfwotz Proper date over 2,000 years old, 1929being remarkably preserved and updated with modern amenities. Fulfwotz also lacks buildings of considerable height; it is rare to see one over 200 feet tall, though many fall between 100 and 200 feet tall. The tallest structure in the Kingdom city would be Castle Mugg, which stands at 246 feet. While no height limit is enforced, many worry that the uniform motif of Fulfwotz was incorporated into the [[New Sammichian Empire]] wouldn't translate well to a skyscraper. Especially in Fulfwotz Proper, buildings are constructed with minimal amount of space in between, resulting in a congested and densely-populated center; there is little room for outward expansion within the very same daySeraphina Valley.
== White Plague == Landmarks ====During the Major landmarks within Fulfwotz include [[Castle Mugg]], [[Saint Flafbenz Holy Cathedral]], Abyssinia Hotel, [[White PlagueSammintology]] in 1968Headquarters, Merchants' Market, Peddler's Way, Foie Gras Opera House, DePrey Institute in Fulfwotz was the forefront of discovering a cure for the deadly lymphrosis strain. Fulfwotz itself was quarantined to prevent the spread of the illnessFollywood Sign, but was soon infected after the quarantine was compromised. Nearly 1/4 of the population was killed due to the large Sammichian populationHigh Chancellor's Mansion, whose immune systems are very susceptible to the virus.[[The infection of the city led to serious repercussions in the Shire economyColossus]], with the musicCabraxte Cinema, film, and television industries based largely in Fulfwotz inactive. Work inside [[DePrey Institute continued]], the Fulfspyre, until a vaccine was developed and distributed amongst the ShireWatchtower Hill, among others.
== Organization = Topography ===The city of Fulfwotz is known for its six distinct boroughs which make up lies in the shape coastal basin of the city. Each borough Seraphina Valley, which is controlled surrounded on three sides by a councilthe Alturas-Santos mountains, headed by an appointed Subchancellor by and Enderfulf Bay on the [[Sammichian Imperial Chancellery]]last. The various boroughs Within the valley are remarked for their diverse two smaller hills; Watchtower Hill (124 feet), and varying subcultures despite being in close proximity to each otherWormwood Hill (156 feet). Due to the size of Fulfwotz Proper, it is also divided into numerous districts or neighborhoods recognized by the governmentFulfwotz River, while the conflux of the Ichor and Arriviste Rivers seperate Veneziana from Feverly Hills. Other boroughs are also divided into neighborhoodsThe highest point in the city is Mount Seraphaho (10, but said neighborhoods are unofficial areas named by those living within them340 feet).
=== Boroughs Flora and Fauna ===*[[Fulfwotz Proper]]*[[Feverly Hills]]*[[Fulfton]]*[[is home to many different biomes and habitats, such as beaches, mountains, shrubland, and desert. A distinguishing feature of the city is the presence of towering ''Demma colerica'', or Colerica Palms. Native to the Demmatrodine Region, the palms are protected by the SEA due to their susceptibility to the Seraphaho Whelsk, an invasive tree-boring insect. Fulfwotz Fan Palms are also a common sight, along with arid oak and coral trees. Due to microclimate phenomena, in the cooler areas of Pinecone Village]]*[[and Frentwood, the Athitican Pine is common. At Laurelian Park in Veneziana]]*[[Frentwood]], Laurelian Cherry Blossoms were imported from the city. Coastal sage scrub is also very prevalent in less dense areas of the city.
=== Districts of Fulfwotz Proper Geology ===*Oldetown*Harbor District*Theater District*Watchtower Hill*Seaside Park*Follywood*Farside Park*Edgewater*Wyrmwood Hill*Grand Flafbenz Plaza*Commercial District*Follywood Studios (Owned by Follywood Entertainment Corporation for corporate interests)Due to the nearby Sravasti fault line, Fulfwotz experiences a large amount of seismic activity, averaging about 8,000 very minor earthquakes annually. Seismic activity is intensified with the presence of [[Mt. Wrath]], the largest volcano in the Shire which sits at the opposite end of the Demmatrodine Region, but close enough to cause minor tremors. Most of the earthquakes are too small to be felt, but in 1944 a 6.7 magnitude quake shook the city, causing sizable damage to Fulfwotz Proper. Up until the installation of protective walls that allow the mouth of the harbor to be sealed, and the expansion of the Enderton Peninsula via land reclamation, tsunamis also posed a threat to the inner Enderfulf Bay.
== Culture =Climate ===Fulfwotz is known for the natural microclimate phenomena, meaning areas close in proximity to one another experience different weather and average different temperatures, leading to an altered climate. This is evident in Fulfwotz Proper, where the average temperature in the month of July is 83 degrees Fahrenheit, while over the Alturas-Santos mountains in Pinecone Village, it averages only 72 degrees. Frentwood also recieves a larger amount of annual rainfall than the rest of the city, in which rain is a rare occurrence. In general, however, Fulfwotz has a Subtropical-Mediterranean climate and experiences a large amount of annual sunshine, with only about 40 days a year with any measurable precipitation. In the summer months (roughly June to September), Fulfwotz is subject to a thin layer of fog in the early morning hours and overcast skies, which usually give way to sunshine by afternoon.  Because Due to the very little rain the city receives and salt content of Enderfulf Bay, freshwater is scarce and the presence construction of major entertainment industries such as filmthe Aguarica Aqueduct was necessary to sustain the city's needs. Originally, it was fed by natural underground springs under Sandy Springs, televisionbut when the salt content of the water increased, the aqueduct was modified and music200 miles were built on. It is now fed by Aphrodite's Lake, the largest body of freshwater in the Demmatrodine Region. === Environmental Issues ===Fulfwotz is a victim of the problematic Demmatrodine Whelsk, a tree-boring invasive insect which eats Colerica palms from the inside, leaving a hollow tree that eventually dies. The palms can collapse afterwards, causing damage to structures in the vicinity. Since 2009, the city has been taking aggressive steps to eradicate the whelsks. In 2014, it was reported that the number of trees found hollowed out had decreased by 59%. Researchers project total whelsk eradication in the area by 2020.  Fulfwotz was also an area of poor air quality (which has evolved improved drastically within the last 50 years). Throughout the 1800's and well into the 1900's, Fulfwotz was a global manufacturing hub, chosen for its few laws regarding regulation and its cheap labor, along with its substandard workers' rights policies. Mainly in Frentwood, factories emitted large amounts of CO2 into the air, but this was ended in 1954 with the ratification of the Fulfwotz Fresh Air Act (FFAA) by the Emperor, funded by both the city and the SEA. Now with heavy laws regarding environmental quality, the industrial sector began leaving Fulfwotz for other cities while other factories were driven out of business because Fulfwotz consumers refused to purchase non-eco-friendly products and services. Even [[Burton & Barclay Manufacturing]], a textile-producer since 1889, was forced to close its doors in 1982 after such policies were imposed. Today, Fulfwotz is among the most environmentally-conscious cities in the Shire. == Demographics ==According to the most recent 2015 census, Fulfwotz has a population of 2,819,359. 35% of those people are younger than 18, while 18% are older than 65. The median age in Fulfwotz is 32.8 years. For every 100 females, there are 98.7 males. The median household income of the city is $52,311, with 26% of the population living below the imperial poverty line. 58% of the population identified with a religion, while the remaining 42% did not, making Fulfwotz among the most areligious cities in the Shire. About 46% of Fulfwotzians are not in a committed relationship or practicing monogamy.  === Race and ethnicity ===Fulfwotz is a very mediadiverse city with citizens from all over the Shire and speaking a multitude of different languages. The most spoken languages in the city are English (71%), Spanish (19%), German (11%), and a cluster of other languages which form the remainder. The city has been a long-centric time destination for immigrants, with the boroughs of Feverly Hills and Veneziana being first established by Caffan and Venezian immigrants, respectively. Immigrants flock to the city due to the abundance of jobs and the relatively simple immigration process into the city.  As of 2015, the racial makeup of Fulfwotz includes 46% [[Sammichian]], 38% Human, 7% Laurelii, 5% Enderian, 3% Acadian, and ambitious society1% Enpeecee. Many The Sammichian race makes up the largest portion of its citizens wish the city due to live it being colonized and under the "control of the Old Sammichian Empire and then the predominantly-Sammichian Kingdom of Fulfwotz Dreamfor centuries, along with most of the Empire's highest-ranking officials and prominent figures being of Sammichian descent. The Enpeecee race, which makes up the smallest part of the population, making it was involved in the 1990 Fulfwotz Race Riots, which followed the organized assassination of 12 Enpeecee Chancers. The Enpeecee race has a history of being discriminated against within the city, due to long-lasting animosity by various powerful gangs and after "goin' out and being a hooboi snitch out on big Baby Blue", said an anonymous letter mailed to Chancer Wanda Tourmalino with anthrax powder inside. Baby Blue is the de facto leader of the Frentwood Blues, a street gang. The context of the letter is still unknown.  === Religion ===Of the practiced faiths in Fulfwotz, the [[Orthodox Sammichian Trinity]] (commonly shortened to Ortho) is the most prevalent, followed by Christianity and various other Traditional Faiths. The city has the most dense Ortho following, and also features one of only three Ortho houses of worship in said industriesthe Shire, [[Saint Flafbenz Holy Cathedral]]. The city is known for its surge in new-age religions and cults following the trail of the [[Second Plague]], most of which went out of practice several years later. Among these religions was the controversial Church of [[Sammintology]], which has a small following in the Shire but massive financial resources due to the very monetary-centric structure of the religion. The Church maintains its headquarters in [[Feverly Hills]]. Aside from Sammintology, other cults still function today, such as Zendimensions, Harbinger's Slaves, and the South Beach Diet. With approximately 1,200,000 Fulfwotzians who do not practice any religion, Fulfwotz is considered the most areligious city in the Shire. This statistic lends the ambition city one of its many nicknames, "City of Sin". The lack of religion also might explain the arguably immoral and aspirations corrupt nature of the city and itsgovernment. The rate of practicing Fulfwotzians has decreased from 78% in 1980, and continues to fall. Researchers predict that by 2030, only 20.7% of the city will identify with a religion.  The city has been known to emphasize and enforce secularism, the practice of keeping matters of church and state separate. The Ortho High Priest may not involve himself in any government affairs, and any member of the Chancellery caught preaching religious convictions in an attempt to promote policies in the interest of their faith is either barred from the Chancellery or demoted.  == Economy ==Fulwotz' citizens makes s economy is dominated by the entertainment industry, along with the fashion, tourism, research, medicine, tech, and regulated narcotic industries. Not only does the nonaddictive drug sector serve the Fulfwotz populace, but is imported to other cities that share the same non-prohibitive policies regarding the city shallow use and opportunisticsale of drugs.
