Life is good in the city Ciudad Vida Buena,
for as long as it lasts and that is often not that long.
Ciudad Vida Buena's main source of economy is a gold mine atracting people from all around, who work there hoping for the big one, so they do not have to work anymore ever again in their lives. Every gold digger is a self employed person, there is no monopoly on the gold mining activity here yet.
Due to specific environmental, social and economic circumstances, life expectancy is measured in months instead of years.
