Belgium is a large underground base that is currently being built by Korijenkins and HedgehogMind. Unlike Further North Koria, which is just a small serene bunker no more than a hundred blocks wide, Belgium is a sprawling underground hellscape, with more room for farms, storage, and expansion. It has intended to replace Further North Koria as the main base of North Koria (Clan), with Further North Koria becoming a base primarily used for alts.
Construction began on Belgium in September of 2019 after Korijenkins decided to abandon Oasis (Unfinished base). Development of the base was incredibly slow, as there was a huge amount of stone and lava that needed to be gradually cleared out. In contrast to the white, clean style of Further North Koria, Belgium is a representation of hell, with floors of lava, walls of netherbrick and obsidian, and large pillars of flowing magma running throughout the base. Within a few weeks, an entryway into the base had been constructed, and work on the main hall began.
On October 11th, Korijenkins managed to capture and name a bat, Brece. The bat eventually became one of Belgium's permanent residents.
Development of Belgium continued at an absolute crawl, as Further North Koria was still a very productive location.
A Functioning Base
By December the gold farm was finally functional, and with its completion, further development of the base was expedited. A large digging machine was built, traveling hundreds of blocks down one of the base's many tunnels. A slime farm was built. Each new farm that was built in Belgium increased the desire for both Korijenkins and HedgehogMind to complete the base. By mid January, a villager breeder was added, allowing Belgium to mass produce librarians with good trades. The same day the villager breeder was completed, a zero-tick sugarcane farm was installed, allowing the base to produce up to 16,000 sugarcane per hour.
Further developments continued as Belgium broke ground on its first major expansion. Additionally a trading hall, iron farm, trophy room, melon and pumpkin farm, and capitalist torture pits were added. With the expansion came two new members, TheOnlySlash and Ostrich1414. While Ostrich worked on a highly classified project, TheOnlySlash aided Korijenkins in the further construction and expansion of the base, and supplied trophies for the trophy room.
Belgium is intended to become a sprawling underground base with multiple themed sections to it. To date, only one section has been completed, while two others have been started and only preliminary designs exist for future expansions. The complexity and logistics of building much of the base have caused it to grow at a snail's pace, and because of this many of its residents have come close to abandoning the project altogether. However the completion of the project is still likely, as Korijenkins is unwilling to abandon the base due to its age: at only a year old, it's already one of the server's oldest active bases with many of the others being destroyed in recent months.
