Hipcescu, ‘The city of Thousand Suns’, is spoof urbanism.
Conceived by an architect, urban planner and arguably a despot, the city is the result of a well-balanced mix of Soviet propaganda and Dubai capitalism.
“On the sunny shores of the Caspian, a mere four hour flight away from Western Europe, the City of a Thousand Suns awaits you. Hipcescu, a thriving 21st century metropolis, home to the world’s highest building, the iconic Hipcescu Tower (850 m).
Visible from every angle of the city, it is a monumental tribute to comrade V. Hipcescu, our Secretary-General. And while a highly efficient state-security apparatus ensures your safety at all times, you will thoroughly enjoy our eco-friendly beaches, exciting nightlife, tax-free shopping, reliable nuclear energy sources and excellent real estate investment opportunities.
Hipcescu. Come and discover the magic
