Frostborough is the capital of Freezeland, and the largest continental city. It is located near the midpoint of Freezeland's west coast, with the Weddell sea on one side and the Atlantic on the other, at the mouth of the River Jadis and at the centre of the Frostborough valley. Founded as a High Penguin settlement, the city has been Freezeland's primary city for most of the country's history since early times. Today, it has one of the fastest growing populations of any capital city. Frostborough and contemporary cultural centre for the culture of Freezeland as well as a modern centre of education, the arts, economy and industry.

The originial High Penguin settlement was on the River Poddle, a tributary of the Jadis, to the East of Frostborough, in the area known as Ice Quay. The Frist burrh was a lake used by the High Penguins to moor their ships and was connected to the Jadis by the Poddle. The Frist burrh and Poddle were covered during the early 700s, and as the city expanded they were largely forgotten about. The Frist Burrh was situated behind where Castle Fullmoon is now located, and was dammed up around the time of the Khanzem.
Frorstborough (or as called at the time, "Shepard's Point") was ruled by the High Penguins for most of the time between 841 and 999, when it was sacked by James Cashel, a Cult of Melkor member. Although Shepard's Point still had a High Penguin Chief after the Battle of Poddle in 1014, High Penguin influence waned under a growing lower penguin population until the taking of Teeth in 1014, which marked a unified Confederacy, which now took up the Entire Continent.
In Antarctica under the times of The Plummett, The City of Cashel (As it had been renamed) became the key centre of military and judicial power for High Penguins, with much of the power centering on until Melkor was defeated. From 1416 to 1418, High Penguin control over Freezeland was limited to a section of territory, known as the Midland, which included Cashel at its northern end, and Pepperinge Eye (Carrenmoore) at its southern extremity. After Melkor was defeated, all lands were took back by 1425, and Cashel was once again renamed, Eglintonville, and stayed that way until the 1800's, when it was named Frostborough.
Eglintonville was a medium sized town, a port and fishery which welcomed travellers down the Jadis. Eglintonville was known as "The Golden Gates".
During the Khanzem, Frostborough was the new capital for the Good Guys. It was well fortified, in a good strategic location, and had much historical importance. The Grand Post Office was used as the capital building, but sadly was burnt to the ground in 1916 by a surprise attack.
In 1997, when Freezeland declared independance, the King asked Triskelle to choose a capital. He, obviously, chose Frostborough. His originial decision was going to be Ard Mhaca City, but he changed his mind at the last minute due to popular demand.
In a 2005 survey, Frostborough scored 2 on the "best cities to live in", with number one being Club Penguin.
Stuck In The Past?
Frostborough is often concieved as "Stuck In The Past", along with the rest of Freezeland. Its streets are cobblestone, about one in ten penguins own a car, and even less use them. Most signs with photographs on them are in black and white, telephones still use the operator system, hairstyles and clothes are similiar to those of the 1940s-late 50s. Crime is low, and services and wares are cheap. Positions defunct in the USA are still common here, such as milkpenguins, chimneysweeps, and doctors still make house calls. Freezeland is advancing, though, with new luxuries coming out more often (like the Frostborough Theatre's new sign 'Movies in Colour; Air Conditioning, and car park!').

Villages Outside of City Limits
Though being Freezeland's largest city, shortly outside of Frostborough are small, quaint, villages. Most penguins in these villages work in Frostborough, and many Penguins from Frostborough own cottages here. Many tourists stay in cosy bed-and-breakfasts in the villages when visiting the area.
Garden Hill - Quiet neighbourhood located on the banks of the Jadis. Home to the third lock on the Jadis lock system.
Silverbridge - Located on the other side of the Jadis, south of Garden Hill.
Scotch Street -Home to about 30 Penguins, and houses Northern Midland's largest Cream Soda brewery.
Maytown - Home to the Midland Zoo.
Ballymote - Small Village located near the county line. Mayor McFlapp owns a summer cottage here.
University Park - A small neighbourhood built during Colonial Antarctica that is home to Frostborough University. It is one of the few places near Frostborough that is rather modern due to the influx of University students from around the Antarctic. The university's largest building is 3 stories high, while the remainder of the university town has one of two story brick houses that serve as dorm rooms.
There are around A million inhabbitants, on many servers. Inhabbitants of Frostborough are Called "Boroughers", or a more impolite term, "Frosties".
Frostborough and it's vicinity is home to three primary schools and two secondary schools. Because Frostborough is known for being "behind the times", its schools are known for wearing uniforms and having strict teachers who still use corporal punishment, such as swatting misbehaving students with a ruler or making them wear a dunce cap while standing in the corner. Nevertheless, Frostborough offers exceptional education to its young students and prepares them well for the higher level education of College and University.
Frostborough's only source of Higher Education is the nearby Frostborough University, which is its own separate community for the campus students. Frostborough University's student campus life is quite different from the rest of the city since it is as modern as the rest of Antarctica due to many foreign students from countries such as the USA, Puffle'and, Calada, Castilla, and even Alemania. The University has a broad variety of fields that a student may wish to pursue, such as Business, Engineering, Culinary Arts, Sciences, History, World Languages, Criminal Justice, and much more.
