Kingston, Eastshield, more commonly referred to as Kingston or Kingston County is a city-consolidated county based around Eastern Eastshield, named after it's historically large population of King Penguins. It is considered the hub of Eastern Eastshield, with it being considered the unofficial capital of the area. It's one of the cities that were heavily influenced by Puffish culture. It is recognized as third-largest city in Eastshield, behind South Pole City and Inland. There have been proposals for a nation of King Penguins based around Kingston to be established but the movement has been unpopular. Despite this, Kingston has a culture of it's own, separate from the highly urbanized culture in Central Eastshield and the from the more rural-based culture in South and Northwest Eastshield. The University of Kingston is the mark of Kingston, ranked 5th in the entire country and 3rd in Eastshield, however the city also has a notable amount of liberal arts colleges, including what is regarded as the best, the Kingston College of Arts and Science, although it is a constituent college of the University of Kingston, so as a result, this claim is disputed. It's also home to MANY Swag Penguins; possibly the largest amount all of Antarctica packed into one city.

Aside from being a college town, Kingston is also historically a fishing city, although this has become a less significant industry. Many factories however still remain active since the Industrial Era and the Docklands are just as active as ever, with Kingston exporting many of the goods it's manufacture across Antarctica. Despite this, an increasing amount of people is being employed in the service sector due to economic restructuring, with the old mines running dry. Only tariffs and federal subsidies have kept the the manufacturing industry alive and if it disappears, then job losses would occur. For now, Kingston is in the green and it is unlikely that anything major will occur. Kingston apparently has a rivalry with Polaris, with the term 'we may not be perfect but at least we're not a corrupt, liberal dump' originating from the city, more specifically from graffiti sprayed on entrance of the University of Kingston which is yet to be removed since 2002. However, it is mostly a friendly rivalry based around sports rather than politics.

History[edit]

Kingston was founded during the HPC as a fishing village, by a large number of King Penguins living on the coast of modern-day Eastshield. It became a decent-sized city during the Industrial boom of Olde Antarctica, and attention was brought to the city's gem, the University of Kingston. After Khanzem took over, the city was put under their control. Everyone was forced to adapt to the ways of Khanzem and obey their new laws. Around 20% of the population made a rebel group to try and overthrow the new government while others were too scared. In 1915, they took on the government office but their numbers were very quickly dying out. Some soldiers from Puffle'and saw the ongoing attack and decided to join them. Together, they managed to beat back the Khanzem rule from the area and secure the city for themselves again. The city was freed of Khanzem rule, only to be retaken after a few years. When the Khanzem War was over, the city was reclaimed and freed. Kingston later went under Puffish rule in Colonial Antarctica but nobody seemed to mind much. Kingston became one of the most heavily influenced cities under Puffish rule until the rule ended but this still retained. Many Puffish penguins still like to come here since it's quite similar to their homeland. Nowadays, Kingston is a growing city that has already been introduced to modern life and has cars, trains and buses.
