Naypyidaw...A city 6 times the size of New York with less than 1 million people...Luxurius, with broad multi-lane avenues, new houses and huge buildings but with few people. Empty streets, empty hotels and restaurants, many times the only people you get to see among the luxurius buildings are the starved peasant workers....

Too bad the city inhabitants aren't white.

Looks amazing. I hope someday I have money and freedom enough to build a city as beautiful and underpopulated.
