WAL-MARTIA - Just outside of Chicago is a brand-new Wal-Mart.
Wal-Martia, the latest expansion ever by the retail transnational, will cover 103 sq mi (270 sq. km), or roughly the size of Birmingham (UK) or the size of Queens in New York.
"Wal-Mart is known for it's large store sizes," said a spokesman, "however, to bring you more of the things you love, and the prices you'll love, we've had to expand a bit. This will be no different. With checkouts every 200 yards (180m), and a monorail service to take you anywhere in the store, you'll be mad to be not there!"
The city is the largest building ever constructed by a private enterprise, and could be the largest man-made thing since the International Space Station. It was built over 2 years, and cost $200 million to place the infrastructure and the old bricks and mortar.
"I feel that me and my family will be able to get what we need for the year in one go," said Mr. Jack Henwood, "luckily for me, I can go into the city and select what I need, then Wal-Martia will ship it to my front door using military cargo aircraft. Fantastic."
The city will also be eco-friendly, with the entire city being run on happiness.
Wal-Mart are also looking to expand in Britain under its local ASDA chain supermarkets.
Look out soon for Asdaton near Birmingham.
