Literally "Moon Garden" in Old Chinese. Partially subterranean city located on Earth's moon (Luna). Established by the Confederation of Chinese Territories in 2130 as a scientific research station (primarily in low-G agrisplice-culture, bionanotech, and hydroponics), it created quite a controversy when the Confederation closed it to all but Chinese citizens. Later it converted to a low-G recreation and rehabilitation facility and the ban lifted. The city survived the nanoswarms thanks to an efficient blue goo defence network. Now mainly a quaint historical locale (especially the Old City, a popular tourist jaunt).
