Era of stagnation (July 24th - August 19th)
Orenburg was started by Ferraru when they suggested to make a nation in Ural with their friends. Orenburg was the 2nd town to be established in the nation, the 1st one was Chelny (previously known as Набережные_Челны). During the era of stagnation, the town initially served no purpose, and only existed as a station for Ferraru to store resources and recruit people to exchange gold. The town quickly rose in population because of Ferraru's effective recruiting methods, however, no buildings, roads, bases were to be seen - Orenburg was nothing but a large flat plain of grass.
