Deomocracity One

Future City > World's Fair City

People who know about the 1939 World's Fair usually know about Futurama, but what they often forget is that there was a rival to the General Motors vision of tomorrow. After Futurama, the second most popular exhibit at the fair was Democracity. Where Futurama attempted to show the world of 1960, Democracity was a gigantic diorama that set its sights on the far off world of 2039.

That's all very well and good, you say, but why does this page show the fair's centrepiece of the Trylon and Perisphere? Where the heck is Democracity.  

As No. 2 would reply, that would be telling.
