'''Neo-Tokyo''' (jap. ネオ東京) is the capital of Japan and the seat of the Emperor. It was created in the aftermath of the Ring of Fire catastrophe of 2061. As part of the rebuilding efforts the old metropolis, '''Tokyo''' (jap. 東京) proper, was merged with the surrounding prefectures (the Greater Tokyo Area) to form '''Neo-Tokyo Prefecture'''.{{src}} p.79 The '''Greater Neo-Tokyo Metropolitan Area''', nicknamed "the city without end", is the country's largest sprawl of 50 million people {{src}} p.59 unofficial number, official estimate is only 45 million, one of the largest on Earth.

Neo-Tokyo comprises of Tokyo city (the wards), the three former prefectures Kanagawa, Saitama and Chiba and the artificial islands and arcologies built into Tokyo Bay. An area of more than 20,000 km².{{src}} p.76

In 2061, during the Ring of Fire eruptions, an earthquake destroyed parts of the city. Megacorps started to build the destroyed parts of the city, but the new emperor, 14-year-old Yasuhito, disagreed. He planned to rebuild the city with help of Shinto priests, mages and ''kami'' spirits. 

In 2062, Yamatetsu reopened its offices in the city and the rest of the country.

Emperor Yasuhito consolidated several neighboring prefectures in 2063 into Neo-Tokyo and begins implementing his reconstruction plans. In 2064, Transys Neuronet announced its wireless Matrix overlay for the sprawl, setting the foundation for its augmented reality grid.

Officially 45 million people live in the Greater Neo-Tokyo Metropolitan Area, the true number including SINless and non-recognized sapients is deemed closer to 50 million (2071).{{src}} p.59 The population density is roughly 2500/km² based on 50 million and a 20,000 km² area ({{src}} p.59, 76) with a much higher density in the central region.

==Wards {{src}} p.76-84==
Each of Neo-Tokyo's wards has its own government and function as independent cities, with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, seated in Nishi-Shinjuku, handling sprawl-wide services.


Neo-Tokyo's abandoned subways and extensive flood-control tunnels also house thousands of homeless and shamed metahumans.

===The 23 Special Wards of Tokyo===
The urban area of Tokyo is divided into 23 special wards (特別区, ''tokubetsuku''), and many resemble sizable cities in most respects.

Would it be to much to ask for a page reference on the cybered body in runner havens?

A complete search of Runner Haven's reveals nothing about a cybered body for Captain Chaos.  The only references to Captain Chaos surviving the Crash appear in System Failure, which appear to describe Captain Chaos turning into an AI, or matrix ghost, and in Unwired P164.  Specifically Pistons states that someone was banned from ShadowSea for claiming to have run into Captain Chaos in a DIMR node.  FastJack replies saying that he has to check on the grave of an old friend.  I've edited the page to reflect this.

There might be a vague reference to Captain Chaos whereabouts in Runner Havens though. Page 99 shadowtalk by Pistons "Any one heard the rumor that some of Shadowland's core data was dumped to a secret file server before the Crash erased it? By core data, I mean the really juicy stuff that they decided not to back-up to the Nexus?" --UserLoki 2300, 12 October 2009 (UTC)

Right you are.  Runner Havens does mention a core data dump just before the crash.  This appears to be the last thing that Captain Chaos was doing before Jormungand got him, "Now he was alone, standing in the archives, overseeing the last backup downloads."  I don't think that the two are really the same thing.
Can we get a ban on this robot?
