Capital City of Slateport EditSlateport was first established under the name of Meteli in January 2015, and the nation of Florence was created soon after. Slateport is big in the farming industry, and is well known for its 30's style architecture and sweeping farms. The city continued to grow, and has seen a few defensive wars. In October 2015, Florence and Byzantium merged, forming the great nation it is known for today. Slateport is currently building an apartment building, furnishing the convention center, and planning for residential zones, a casino, and amusement park.
