Drum City is large walled city, named after its external appearance to a drum.

The outer wall is a perfect circle, 220m in diameter, and 4m thick.

There is a wooden rampart running around the inside perimeter of the wall, permitting it to be used as a walkway and observation platform, to look both into the city and out from it.

The streets and building spaces follow a pattern of concentric rings, with roads running concentrically and radially along the four cardinal compass directions.

There are three building rings altogether, paved in smooth stone, and interspersed with two "green belt" rings of grass planted with trees. These are separated by cobblestone roads, building on which is forbidden in order to facilitate easy navigation on foot.


Constructed as expansion space after the completion of Dial Republic, Drum City quickly surpassed the former settlement, and earned its own warp. It was laid out as a planned city from the start, with roads and building spaces allocated before any construction took place, making it the first fully planned city in Freedonia.

During MinecraftOnline's 12th Birthday event, Drum City was faced with a Robot Dragon attack. Dozens of players poured in from across the server to defend the city, including getplayerhead.sh?SlowRiot&16.png SlowRiot, who had logged on for the first time in a year. Admins present during the battle either sided with or against players, with some summoning hostile mobs such as Vindicators to aid the dragon. Despite the lag from over a hundred players online, the dragon was eventually killed, and Drum City was returned to its former state.
