Overthrown of the Old Persians and a New Start

O.K., we know this, right?

Alexander the Great invaded the Persian empire and then collapsed. The survivors, however, fled to the north, which later attacked the Selucid empire, the empire that appeared after Alexander's death. Soon, the Persians became the Sassanids and started a new Persian empire-the Sassanid empire.

New Capital- Tashbaan

Tashbaan was a capital city that once used to be Ur, which is also a wonder of the world. Taq-i Kisra was a great city. Just at it is, it is the most enormous, magnificent, splendid, wealthiest, fortified, and the greatest city in the world. It had 40 million people. It is very huge because the city is big as 50 Tokyos. It had magnificent and splendid buildings, and has a bunch of 55 forums at the middle as with the Imperial Palace. It had huge harbors and series of canals. Tashbaan was a tropical paradise. It had a lot of palm trees and has a firefighter and police force to look after the city. And yes, as with every city, there were poor and rich. Everyone speaks Persia and Indian, in the empire, but rarely, other world-wide languages. Their culture is very advanced, blending 75 cultures and trading happens more there than anywhere else. With thick walls, fortified with watchtowers, gates, forts and super fire-shot trebuchets made land of sea invasions difficult. Although borrowed from China, they adopted the way of gunpowder in using it for fireworks, weapons, and made a technique of the fire shot. It boasted a sewer system, and organized social service in hospitals, homes, and orphanages. Ships crowded the city's harbors, luxuries come from all over the world. people without jobs are given, such as sweeping the streets, and weeding public gardens. The city's streets are either narrow of wide, grand and board, straight or twisting. Tashbaan had the most finest streets than elsewhere. Bridges were decorated, and shops were found all over the place. Massive and humongous structures are found then anywhere else. The first ballrooms were built for everyone to attend great parties. People, camels, mule trains, horses, elephants, soldiers, merchants, peasants, water sellers, sweetmeat sellers, porters, beggars, raged children, barefooted slaves, stray dogs and cats, pets, priests, carriages, and litters all crowd the streets. Many luxuries items, like ivory, silks, fur, perfumes, rum, gold, furniture, Samian ware (borrowed from the Romans), fabulous and wealthy jewelery, rich dining utensils, musical instruments, silverware, ornaments, decorating supplies, spices, precious and colored stones, and other luxuries items fled in Tashbaan's and its empire's markets. Everyone attended circuses, theaters, and amphitheaters. They were one of the many recreations that made the Sassanids happy. All roads and trade routes lead to Tashbaan. Public works were always made, and it has expanded a lot as the population grew. Its ports are centers of warship building, seafood produce, and centers of trading. Canals were water streets where ships drove on, and many monuments are found. There were many arenas where battleships fought, and there were many buildings that could stand on the water. Ships guard and control the waters around the port. Irrigation ditches were built at the ports in swampy areas to deliver to farms to control the water level. Sassanids had made a filter to turn the water cleaner, and most of the water is delivered the fountains and waterfalls that flow to the canals at the port. Sassanids refer the ports as paradises. Tashbaan also produces everything in their economy list. Trade always flourished in the empire, There were many food supplies stockpiled in the city. To the Sassanids, there was no special cargo than grain. It was the main food supply for making bread, pasta, cereals, and crackers. Farms, orchards, vineyards, livestock pens, and other farms are found inside the city as well. The emperor always gave money and food to the poor. In this city, what's so strange about is that many structures, and there were terraces over terraces, streets above streets, and then zigzag roads and huge flights of steps bordered (and are also found there) with orange and lemon trees, roof-gardens, balconies, deep archways, pillared colonnades, spires, battlements, minarets, and pinnacles. Many governments buildings house laws, records, and orders. A trillion temples, mosques, and shrines are dotted in the city. Statues were very lifelike, and Tashbaan was an humongous city. A huge fort ring surrounds the city. With guards all over the place, invasion was always difficult. The city expanded always, and finally reached its extent in the middle of the mid-empire.
