Yorke, Arcacia[edit | edit source]
Yorke, Arcacia - "Dare to Dream" is the motto for Arcacia's bid for the Simlympic Games of May 2010. The Arcacian Government is investing heavily in the bid along with the Government of Yorke Bay, having already completed construction of all required venues. Once bidding officially opens in early 2010, the bid will go into full swing with Arcacia being put on show for the world to see. Said President Daniel Raffaele: "Arcacia needs the world to see it's not just a backwater. We can punch above our weight and we'll show the world what we can do in 2010." Arcacia is an incredibly rich country with a trillion dollar economy, despite a population of less than 200,000. This is in part due to a long history of wise investing, mainly in precious metals. Arcacia has one of the world's largest gold reserves.

Millions have also been spent on construction of several new sporting venues, including a world-class Simlympic Park in Yorke. Most of the events will take place inside Yorke, with all but 3 venues located in the District of Yorke Bay.
