The Begum's Millions by Jules Verne

Two wealthy guys start two competing utopian cities; war ensues. The one run by a maniacal supervillain intent on building weapons of mass destruction ends up wiping itself out. I appreciate that Verne is trying to do something more interesting here than his usual travelogues, but it's not actually very interesting. No characterization, mediocre plot.
