Capital City, also spelled Capitol City, is the capital and largest city in Springfield's state. It is nicknamed "The Windy Apple" which is a combination of Chicago and New York's nicknames, The Windy City and The Big Apple. It is a major metropolitan urban center, and host of sporting events, conventions, and United Nations conferences. It is also the birthplace of capital punishment. Capital City has a population of 6,339,760. It is a parody of large American cities, such as New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and San Francisco.
The city has a famous cross-town suspension bridge that most people entering and leaving Capital City cross over. The Capitol Building, where all state matters are discussed and where governors Mary Bailey and the Unnamed Governor work, is located in Capital City. Other notable landmarks in Capital City include an Army Reserve monument, 4th Street and D (a popular tourist destination), the Capital City Duff Brewery where Duff Beer is made and the Duff's CEO works, and the massive Capital City Stadium.
It is constantly depicted within driving distance of Springfield, close enough to warrant day trips there. Yet in Milhouse Doesn't Live Here Anymore, Bart has to go by plane to Capital City, suggesting that the Simpsons' state is quite large.
