In the late nineteen-eighties, the United Nations council, concerned with balancing population with industry, agriculture and environment, began an ambitious project on the island of Honshu to create the world's first clean, compact, pre-designed Mega City using principles of archology. Scientists, engineers and architects from around the globe were invited to participate in the project. The United Nations believed the project would be of benefit to the whole of mankind, clustering human populations into more efficient cities and leaving more and more land for farming and restoration to nature. The goal seemed almost impossible, until a pair of MIT graduates from the United States of America, Doctor Thomas Light and Doctor Albert Wily, brought to the project what would ultimately make the mega city possible to complete: Modern Robotics. With the creation of the Mechanical Tool (Metool) by Light Labs, the construction crews set to the task of the mega city project found themselves able to increase productivity and speed to unprecedented degrees. As more of Light Labs' robots were put into production and sent out to work, the impossible dream became a reality, with the city completed in time for the millennial celebration in 2000. The city's name would come from its children; as a way of recognizing this city's ideals of providing a new way of living for future generations, the children were asked to name it, and decided to call it Megatropolis, referring to its enormous size. Since that time, Megatropolis has grown exponentially, the use of robotics allowing for improved living conditions for human beings as well as flora and fauna. It has been declared the ninth wonder of the world by the United Nations, and has become a technological, industrial and economic hub of the world.
