Even if Valoran suffer from the last five Rune Wars, Bandle City remains untouched. The green temperate climates in the Yordle Land remain alluring and many humans visit the city as a vacation spot. Bandle City is the "pint-sized superpower" that dominates all of the Yordle Land but on all of Runeterra, it is just one of the eight city-states that has joined the League of Legends. Bandle City one of the few governing bodies of Valoran that follows democracy. Its relationship with other city states has been relatively healthy, though they share small tensions with Bilgewater. Major diplomatic achievements have been made in Bandle City, the most recent is the alliance between Demacia and Bandle City, accomplished by the Iron Ambassador.
The military of Bandle City, compared to the other city states, has yet to make a mark in Valoran history. Because of the lack of famous heroes coming from the Yordle Land, many misconceptions arise that Bandle City's military is a joke. But like any other city state with a standing army, air force and navy, Bandle City has it and will present it. The city state has warded the entire Yordle Land from threats and every tribe, nation and city in the Yordle Land has looked up to Bandle City for defense. Recently, the arrival of new League champions and the rumors of the Sixth Rune War and the Void-Shadow Isle invasion has forced Mayor Dennison Jadefellow to increase its defense budget, making Bandle City a potent military power outside the Sablestone Mountains.
Having become something of a tourist attraction in recent times, the pint-sized locals are generally friendly towards all visitors, so long as they're prepared to stoop to get through doorways. To outsiders, the whole thing seems like some sort of fantasy getaway and the yordles, ruthless businessmen that they are, are quite willing to exploit this for profit. Everywhere there are little open stores selling yordle-made goods, techmaturgical appliances, and Teemo and Heimerdinger themed merchandise. Visitors can even pay to take a tour of the Bandle Secret Services Office (within reasonable bounds) to meet Tristina, Teemo, and a gaggle of adorable little scouts attempting to follow in their footsteps.
Yordles are more social than the other species of the planet. Some humans can go without talking to anyone but an average yordle needs lots of social interaction. Their culture depends on moral standards and sometimes carefree atmospheres. Many nations in Valoran rates the city state of Bandle City to have one of the most polite, if not the most polite societies and cultures in the world. Even amidst all the conflict in Runeterra, Bandle City and its culture remains the way it always has been - quaint, charming and full of positive energy. The sound of chattering yordles and chuffing machinery fill the air along with the smell of baking and icing sugar. Each of the many small houses that line the uneven streets are covered mutually with ivy or needless mechanical parts, and more than a few of them have a tree intentionally growing through the roof or window.
PLACES OF INTEREST:
Central Plaza of Bandle City:
At the Central Plaza of Bandle City, yordles and sometimes other species of the world commune with each other, talking about their daily lives. A fountain is in the middle of the city, giving finesse to the residents and to visitors alike. The central plaza is usually clean but now it's filled with news from the League of Legends, funny tourist posters, and advertisements from Yoshi for any species to join his fleet.
In the center of town is the fabled Mothership, a strange construct of steel and glass that seems to have served some kind of techmaturgical function in the past. It remains to this day a treasured landmark amongst the denizens of Bandle City, even if in recent times it's been shifted slightly from it's original position. There are many posters at the site showing visitors exactly how it used to look, though it takes a good eye to spot the difference.
A bit further down, the blacksmithery in Bandle City is well known for excellent repair and construction of not only yordle-made, but foreign weapons and armor. Blomgrun, her father, was Bandle City's finest smith. Sadly, he died delivering a priceless helm to the generals of Demacia. His daughter, Poppy, took over and ever since, became the famed Iron Ambassador of Demacia and Bandle City.
Yordle Junior Summoner's League:
A new addition to Bandle City is the Yordle Junior Summoner's League, a training facility for those studying to become summoners. The place is pretty empty right now, since it hasn't really caught on yet, but like most other places it's open for tourists to browse, if just so that they can chuckle at the tiny summoning tables.
This is the place where the Bandle City Army, Navy, and Air Force commune and meet. This serves as the main base of the Bandle City Scouts, readying to defend its homeland from any invader or terrorists. The Mayor of Bandle City, currently Dennison Jadefellow, leads the entire military in times of war. Usually the military would be consulted by the generals and admirals.
