Barth Banchup Bakchakris

The City of Burning Blood, the Capital of Hell.

Atlanta was quite right. It had been in the year of the Slug, in Belta 2359, that Yulius had made his trip to Barth Banchup Bakchakris, the City of Burning Blood, the capital of Hell. [WoH Ch5]

'Atlanta's a realist,' said Atlanta, 'and she's giving serious thought to getting down from here before the whole thing collapses. As for progress - if progress is such a big deal, then how come they have slums in Barth Banchup Bakchakris?'
A good question, since Barth Banchup Bakchakris was the home port of the Zuzu Magore, the much-anticipated skyship. [EoH Ch1]

'Then,' said Nodo, switching into play-acting mode, and assuming the role of a hard-nosed interrogator from the Gulf and the Chasms, 'do you realize that nearly half of the inhabitants of Barth Banchup Bakchakris live beneath the poverty line? Since the very citizens of Hell are suffering so badly, how can Chalakanesia ask for charity?'

[NoP Ch3]

After that annus mirabilis (which included not just the Act of Thunder but also the Black Flood, the Blue Plague and the Great Fire), the good people of Lexis tried to redesign their city along the lines of Barth Banchup Bakchakris, which is famous for being laid out on a geographical grid in which the streets run from north to south and from east to west.
(It is famous also for many other things, including the passions of its more avant garde artists, the ferocity of the rats which live within its sewers, and the prodigious size of the crocodiles which haunt its rivers. But this book is concerned with Chalakanesia, and not with the Chasms of Hell, therefore we need say no more about Barth Banchup Bakchakris). [NoP Ch12]
