History

OwainX, the founder and Governor of Babbage previously governed the autonomous city of Freeport within Acadia on CivUniverse. When Acadia decided to migrate to CivClassics OwainX journeyed to the new claim creating a camp in what is now Kanava. When Acadia officially moved and a site was selected for the capital, New Turing, the site for Lovelace, along the Lovelace river on the northern border with Mir was selected and work began.

The first major project in Babbage was the creation of the Lovelace Canal linking the Lovelace River and Lake Elizabeth and allowed for easy travel between the two cities.

Flag of Babbage

The official flag of Babbage was based on the flag of the Isle of Nordran, a nation in CivEx: First Light, which was founded by OwainX. Its red cross on a yellow field is combined with the blue field and seal of the flag of Acadia in the flag of Babbage.

Economy

The economy of Babbage was dominated by The Lovelace Company which was founded there. Spleef Corp also had facilities within Babbage.
