HEARTLAND, 

the preliminary zone, is a heart-shaped, partly artifical mountain with Souvenir City spreading out on its leveled peak. Visitors spend a limited time here - four to twelve months - before proceeding into the inner zones of the PARK.

Peter Brag, archtitect of many of its famous buildings and one of the more widely known characters of the PARK, built his mausoleum beyond the city limits, on the outer side of the Tender Crest. The interior walls of the pavilion and the enormous vault underneath, are one continous painting of Brag's own life story.
