The Capital city of Arizona - one of the last states to become a state, because it took forever for the rest of the US to massacre the resident population of natives. Phoenix is population-wise extremely small, but so sprawled out it has become the US's largest city area-wise. Subsequently, the idiot city planners of Downtown Phoenix decided to make a fucking mess of the city, not anticipating the growth, making it a nightmare to move from one block to the other, and forgetting to get proper taxis and such. Instead, there is an overpriced light rail that is more or less the governor's toy.
Phoenix is conveniently placed in the damn center of the state, cranking out many ignorantly stupid patriots that are obsessing over border problems, even though they don't live remotely close to the border. It's probably the heat screwing with their heads anyways, since the temperature here can melt the tar in the asphalt. Speaking of which, there's actually vegetation here, surprisingly, but almost all of them are spiky to touch, such as palo verdes or cacti. anything external to the aforementioned plants and a bunch of spiky shrubs is most likely crops planted in the worst place to do so.
Really, there's no example to compare Phoenix, AZ to because no other city is as screwed up as we are.
