New Gaplastovia, formerly known as Great Gapla City and Gapla City, is the capital city of the Federated States of Gapla. Located in the first territory of the Federated States of Gapla, the city has a population of 3 and an area of around 1,200 square feet. It is one of the least populated and smallest cities in the country, however, remains the capital seat due to its position as the home of the Sovereign Prince and symbolic importance.
Some citizens consider Elemental City as the de facto capital city.
New Gaplastovia was part of the state of Elemental after the conclusion of the interstate sessions, a competition between Gaplan states to achieve a variety of goals. However, the Second Addendum to the Federal Reformation Act 2022 transferred the city to the newly formed SAR of New Olympia.
New Gaplastovia was first declared during the Principality of Gapla, because the United Republics of Gapla and Phoenix only claimed the secret base as its territory, not any residences. It was declared in order to find territory for the newborn Gaplan state and was declared the capital city as that was its only territory.
After the events of Union Day, the Federated States of Gapla gained four new cities: Snake, Phoenix, Northern Emeralkia, and Southern Emeralkia.
While it has participated as a prize for some interstate sessions, New Gaplastovia is not largely involved in Gaplan politics and does not have a seat to the Chamber of Representatives. Due to this, it has been largely uninvolved in Gaplan history except for when it was taken over and when it was instituted as a capital.
Transfer to Elemental
After Elemental's victory in an interstate session, the city of New Gaplastovia was transferred as Elementalian territory.
However, New Gaplastovia is a special city and state laws do not apply to it. The Governor of Folia Tail, Renaldo Chang, a right-wing competitor of Chelsea, has expressed regret and opposition to New Gaplastovia becoming a city of Elemental.
During the 2022 Emersyo coup attempt, the city of New Gaplastovia was captured by Emersyo forces.
After the Emersyo surrendered and their forces died down, New Gaplastovia was quickly returned to government control.
Today, New Gaplastovia is one of the smallest cities in Gapla by population and land area, but serves as a symbolic capital and center of operations for the Federated States of Gapla. It is the residence of the Sovereign Prince (although not the President, who lives in Southern Emeralkia).
The city is often used to facilitate cash transactions for the Gaplan store.
