NDC, also known as "New Dane City", is currently the capital city, largest city, and only city of the Grand Order of DR as of this article. The city was established on March 17, 2019, the same day as the Grand Order of DR, and has been host to almost all major events in the nation, and was founded by SOL Dane Bozzoli himself. NDC is home to six out of the seven citizens of the GODR, including SOL Dane Bozzoli, who have all lived on the site long before the official establishment of the city and it's host nation. The city of NDC is located in the Northern most area of the GODR, taking up roughly half of the GODR's one acre land claim.

Notable Locations

The city has several notable locations, such as buildings, monuments, businesses, etc, that make the GODR capital city quite lively.

Such notable locations include, but are not limited to:

  • The Barbershed, an old fashioned style barbershop owned by SOL Dane Bozzoli's father that operates out of a 10' by 12' shed
  • GODR Capitol Building/Multiuse hall, which is located in the center of the city, being the hub of most public gatherings and events, as well as the head of government
  • Capitol Square and the Red Arch, a small, grassy park area just in front of the capitol building that is host to the Red Arch, a decorative monument. Capitol Square is bordered on three sides by buildings, and on one side by a vehicle parking area.
  • NDC Garden, a small hobby garden that specializes in growing fruits and veggies, such as strawberries, grapes, corn, and tomatoes
  • Dockin's Palace, a residence that is inhabited by the oldest citizen of the GODR
  • COMING SOON: Bozzoli Lounge and Recreation, a business that will be home to seating areas and amenities, such as billiards, darts, and cards and other board games
