Yorknew City (ヨークシンシティ, Yōkushin Shiti) is a sprawling metropolis of the United States of Saherta, on the Yorbian continent.

Overview

The city annually holds various auctions from the 1st to the 10th of September, including the world's largest auction: the Southernpiece Auction,[1][2] in which the world's rarest and most valuable artifacts are accumulated in one place.

Aside from thousands of lawful auction houses, the city is also famous for its black market auctions which mostly deal with illegal goods. The Mafia's underground auction takes place here every year, in the Cemetery Building.[3]

During the 10 days of the auctions, tens of trillions of Jenny are exchanged in the official auctions alone. Yorknew's auctions are where one's dreams can come true--an item bought for 10,000 Jenny can be sold for 100,000,000 Jenny the next day.[1]
