very interesting thread.
The posibility would be intreeging, but i doubt people would actually want a metal town in the middle of nowhere, so that's why i think , if possible, it should be somewhat far, yet close to a major city, so that the peole can work in that big city, and go home in our metal wonderland.

USA: - Density 31/kmē (172nd)
Romania: - Density 91/kmē (104th)
Bulgaria: - Density 70/kmē (124th)
Ukraine: -Density 80kmē
But look at other aspects. As a romanian, and damn proud, 30% of our surface is mountains, and 32% ( 31. something % ) forests, while Ukraine and Bulgaria ( and Hungary ) have far less.
Over 1/3 of Europe's boars, 1/2 of Europe's bears are in Romania
If i'm not wrong, there's a little Afrikaaner only village in post apartheid SA, called ORANIA ( www.orania.co.za
). So it's not impossible.
