“ I don't really like Madrid... people there like to wash themselves”
Madriz, known as Madrid by foreigners and anti-Spaniards, is the glorious capital of the Roman Catholic Empire of Spain. As such, from monday to thursday it is home to King Magneto and President José Luis Rodríguez Schumacher. During the weekend they have to move out because they just can't stand the bleeding noise.
The population of Madrid varies widely with the time of day, the day of the week and the month of the year. While during weekdays in mid-summer the population is estimated to be 35,071 (all of them crammed in El Corte Inglés to enjoy the air-conditioning), on saturday nights the amount of people in the streets, pubs and discotheques aproaches 3,228,359, all between the ages of 15 and 27. Couple that with the local Fiestas in honour of the patron saints and virgins (in Madrid? Hah!), when everybody has a right to get drunk on the streets, and we are talking about a number rivalling the population of China. It is estimated that if every Madrileño on the streets during the Fiestas were to jump at the same time, the amount of vomit they would throw up would be sufficient to cover Texas 42 cm deep.
However, notwithstanding the party-going-boozing-and-fornicating attitude of the Madrileños, it is a city with a great many Christian churches and parishes (it even has 17 cathedrals, one for each patron!). The number is so high that the amount of land taken up by them can single-handedly explain the lack of available housing for young people in Madrid. This might also explain why they spend all night on the street instead of going to bed and letting the rest of us have a good night's sleep. In chain, this is probably the reason for the endless siestas and the fact nobody ever gets any work done in Madrid. The Church-State rejects these claims and says that what these unruly youngsters should be doing is going to midnight mass instead of partying. This in turn would let people sleep, avoid the siesta and increase productivity 120%. So right.
As capital of The Roman Catholic Empire of Spain, Madrid sits in the exact centre of the country (probably placed there by God Almighty Himself), and respected physicists such as Federico Jiménez Losantos and José María Aznar have consistently proposed that Madriz is also the exact centre of the Universe and primary newtonian reference. Certain fringe theories in Physics, such as "Relativity" by some German guy claim this is not possible, as there is no Universal frame of reference. This theory is currently discredited, as "Relativity" sounds suspiciously like Relativism, and, in the sublime words of Aznar: "Cultural relativism is an illness brought to us by left-wing intellectuals". So take that, Relativity. Besides that, the German guy who proposed it was a Jew. Jews, Masons and Americans have always hated Spain.
If Spain was a donut, Madrid wouldn't exist.
Madrid was founded by Pharaoh Al Bertorruis Gayardén, in 3500 bC, and is notable for not having been officially inaugurated yet. The observant tourist will notice that works have not yet finished, due to frequent delays. Some of these were due to the difficulty of keeping Madrid in the exact centre of The Roman Catholic Empire of Spain, as the country gained and lost territories. Moving the whole town repeatedly was a large burden for the Empire, and its fall can be attributed to the expenses. By 1975 the map seemed pretty stable, and the final foundations are being laid as can be seen in the attached image.
On 2005 US Armed Forces invaded Madrid, responding President ZP decision to withdraw from Irak and avoid standing up as the US Flag passed by at the Military Parade of 12th October 2003. However, the US Forces immediately withdrew from Madrid due to the complete destruction that the M-30, known as Calle 30, caused to Madrid infrastructure, making impossible any chance of entering the Capital. As the soldiers came by, US General Mr. James Bush declared "We are not the first...".
Mayor Gallardón, after the destruction of the road infrastructure of Madrid, started a new project called "Gallardón Colosus", a gigantic statue in the middle of the city representing himself, of 2.000 metres long, being the only construction seen outer space. Mayor Gallardon stated "Madrid citizens are now proud to have the biggest urban statue in the world, after the Bush statue in Washington D.C.".
Shopping and Eating out
Although Madrid used to be on of the premier shopping capitals of Yurp, there are now only two kinds of shop in Madrid: the Chinos and El Corte Inglés. Chinos can be easily recognized as they all have the same sign, with red lettering on a yellow background: ALIMEИTACÍON Y FЯUTOS SECOS.
“ The nightlife of Madrid is like being sent to Iraq. You know when you're going and your first destination, but you'll be damned if you'll ever know when you're coming back.”
Choosing the area
The nightlife in Madrid is varied and fit for all preferences. The main areas for going out are Argüelles, Moncloa, Malasaña, Chueca, Alonso Martínez and Huertas. Each of these areas feature a different style of prevalence, and your choice should depend on the reason you want to be beaten up that night. In Argüelles you will get stabbed for not being South-American, in Moncloa you will get kicked on the ground for not being a Nazi, in Malasaña you will get broken glass thrown at you for not being Anti-Nazi, in Chueca you will get ass-fucked (don't ask why) and in Alonso Martínez you will get punched in the face by accident in a drunken snobs brawl. Actually, no-one will attack you in Huertas; that is because nobody goes there.
