In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.
City Cypriots are snobs, every one else is there to do them service. All declines in Cypriot society are attributed to the influx of foreigners. However, if you are a foreign investor, money launderer or job provider rather than a maid or other low paid worker, you are welcome and will find somewhere to live, school your kids, etc albeit at exorbitant rates.
What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?
Nicosia is the capital and seems to thrive on money derived from the UN, EU and expats. Most people find/create jobs through personal initiative. If Cypriot, they get jobs through who they know.
In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?
Cypriot life revolves around family. Beyond that, in Nicosia, it is very materialistic. In the villages, life has a more fundamental quality, still family focused but more associated with culture and what is readily available eg good food, time, tradition.
