I found it very funny to put a new residential district next to the new cemetery, my residents complained that they had nowhere to hide their dead while only 74% of the cemetery space was used in the old cemetery.

So I built two new cemeteries, and increase the budget for cemeteries. I also decided that I need to use the space around these new cemeteries, so I built a residential district, it is to be an exclusive high-rise district, and those rich people like something like a fancy name I decided to
"Requiescant In Pace" is in Latin "Rest in Peace"

I am a Pole once at the local cemeteries I saw the acronym "R.I.P" I got a little pissed off because we Poles have our own language, Polish, so why use English?
But a familiar priest said that this acronym is not English, but Latin, that it also appears on tombstones from before World War II, or its Polish-language equivalent (Spoczywaj w Pokoju Ś.P )
That after the Second World War communists began social campaigns for the purification of the Polish language from Latin language borrowings, only the Polish language was admissible, or exceptionally Russicism (borrowings from the Russian language)
And not Latin associated with the Catholic Church, English associated with imperialism, the French associated with decadence, and German hell no at all because of Nazism in its pure form :-)

I thought that common knowledge that R.I.P. is from Latin. And Latin was at least in catholic church main language to all rituals in Middle Ages. So It isn't surprising to me.

I found out about it when I was about 13-14 years old, now I have a lot more, when I was studying at university, I did not have much contact with Latin and now I know it.

But whether the name "requiescat in pace" as the name for a district for wealthy people is appropriate? :D

They have a little pace there. And they're plenty of rich old people so they have RIP ahead from death.
