First the Tooth Fairy, then Santa Claus... now it turns out that Chako Paul City isn't real either.
Chako Paul City (or Shakebao) is a fictional town of 25,000 all-female residents located in northern Sweden.
Reports of the town surfaced in Chinese press agencies Xinhua and Harbin News in 2009. Apparently it was founded in 1820 by a wealthy, man-hating widow, and men are barred from entering the town. This of course, forced the sex-starved inhabitants had no choice but to turn to lesbianism.
Immediately following the reports, millions of Chinese men swamped Swedish tourist companies with requests for information about it. Yes, I was dissapointed too.
