Club Penguin City, sometimes referred to as North Club Penguin to avoid confusion with Club Penguin itself, is a major city located to the north of Club Penguin, on King George's Island. Built around the old Puffish capital at Landsowne, Club Penguin City was built as one of the most ambitious projects at the time. Unlike Club Penguin, which operates under a special system The Club envisioned, Club Penguin City is like any normal city, and while it is part of the Club Penguin Metropolitan Area, doesn't operate under Club Penguin's system. Many nonmembers have moved to Club Penguin City over the years in order to escape persecution in Club Penguin.
Most of Landsowne, the capital of the former Colonial Antarctica, was abandoned after the Antarctic Revolution, as the population, mostly Puffish officials and other Puffish nationals, moved back to Puffle'and or other Puffish colonies after the end of Colonial Antarctica. An ambitious company that was subsidized by the government of the USA decided to build a brand new city from the ruins of Landsowne. Over the next few months, they bought nearly every single vacant lot and empty house in the city, and prepared for their project. Construction started in 2001 as the company began demolishing the houses.
Within a few years, with the company working at a nearly unmatched fast pace, construction of the new city finished, and penguins from all over Antarctica began to move their. A large number of the early population was from Club Penguin, mostly nonmembers who wanted to escape persecution under the EBUL system, but also many rich members who wanted to leave the extremely dense Club Penguin, which was very crowded despite the server system. Club Penguin City was a modern city that also attracted many young penguins from around Antarctica who were looking for a good start in life.
