Located perfectly in the middle of the surface of the planet, Albuquerque has been refered to as the Shangri La of the western hemisphere. Visitors to the Duke City are astonished to discover that it is in the continental United States and no passport is required. It's residents are ferociously kind and loving, and have developed more that 500 different ways to cook green chili. After the world wide destruction of 2012, Albuquerque was elected capitol city of the new world. A jewel of the desert.
