I may be completely off here but there seems to be something vaguely un-North American about this city. Could I be right?

Yeah I noticed the same thing... It seems very South American. If I had to guess North America, I would say Louisville KY, otherwise I would say Quito, Ecuador. Both are guesses.

Quito is surrounded by volcanoes and is quite dramatic in setting, but I, too was thinking South America.

Maybe this shows my ignorance, but I'm going to guess Bogota. Colombia.

Or, as a second guess, Cordoba, Argentina.

Not Bloomington (like they haeven have a skyline), Louisville, Quito (Donde esta las llamas?), Cordoba (with rich Corinthian leather), Bogota, or Georgetown.

Hint: South American cities tend to have skylines that are filled with high-rise apartments scattered about the landscape.

Another hint: The primary language of the city's residents is English.

De Noc?;)

Hmmm, the local vegetation seems pretty lush, so they must get a decent amount of rain.

Is it on an island?

Nor Regina, not DeNoc, and not on an island.

Here is the DeNoc skyline, on a warm summer afternoon.

Here's uptown DeNoc.

It looks like the Vancouver style of architecture... so I'll pick the next two largest cities in BC: Surrey or Burnaby.

Not Georgetown, Guyana.
Not Edmonton.
Not Bora Bora.
Not Hamilton.
Not Wellington.

Not Photoshopped, either.

I told you it was the Deluxe Ultra Platinum Extreme Edition.
