Kowa. Kowa was created by the French author Charles Foleÿ and appeared in Kowa la Mystérieuse (1908).

Kowa is a vast, domed Chinese city in the caves underneath San Francisco which is Chicago’s rival. Kowa’s millions of Yellow Peril inhabitants plot against the white surface dwellers, intending to CONQUER THE WORLD! At the end of the novel the dome collapses, crushing Kowa and causing the San Francisco earthquake.
