both are dirt poor but the South was at least on the cusp for industrialization.  Even with Phillipine styled leadership, it would at least have a functional metro system.

I thought the VC guy said if it weren't for the bombings the north will be so rich that they will use gold as toilet paper.

It's crazy. I don't know why the metro system is taking so long. Surely it has to be some sort ot logistics problem or VCP incompetence, which is why they just gave it to vingroup to handle it.

And when will they finally finish the north south railway line? I hear they are making a bullet train for that which will cut the 34 hours of the traditional train speed to 6 hours.

I thought the VC guy said if it weren't for the bombings the north will be so rich that they will use gold as toilet paper.

The south has always been richer than the north, resource wise. The north has very large deposits of rare earth minerals barely harvested because VCP don't know what to do or don't have the money.
