MottoThe Fundraising Gaming Town!

ExtraLand was a community formed during the 1.0 days of Civcraft. It was created by Tim (RadBooley), the owner of Extralives.org, a charity gaming marathon site. Started for fun, the town quickly grew as members of the Extralives community filtered in. Several run-ins with neighboring towns occurred (such as Lugus Fen), before settling into a peaceful co-existence.

After the reset to the Civcraft 2.0 map, ExtraLand was started anew in the minus, minus (-,-) region of the world. As its original owner RadBooley was no longer playing full time, the governance of EL was given to EvilHom3r. The city periodically fell into states of inactivity and activity as its members (a community outside of CivCraft) played or took breaks.

At one point of inactivity, the city of Aytos attempted to annex the land for their own personal purposes. A deal was made between EL's mayor and Aytos to create a law to prevent the annexation of the island of EL and some surrounding islands (Kokomo, Genzu and other subsidiaries of EL).

After the passing of EvilHom3r, there was no acting mayor of the town, however citizens still managed, maintained and attempted to preserve the state of EL. It was also under the watch of the city of Etherium, however Etherium held no political power over the region.

ExtraLand, while it was communist in nature among its members, did not practice any particular form of governance or political ideology. It was mainly agrarian in design, and had a booming tree farm as a major attraction. It was also a closed town, meaning it was not open to membership unless approved by all current citizens. The city also had a moderate trade of forestry and animal products, with shops located at the centralized train station. While the city was closed, it was open to visitors and tours could have been given if one of the citizens had been contacted.
