I'd imagine because the government won't let them move in yet...

I just did a quick search on the city so I'm just speculating here.
The city is located near the southern border of Mongolia and the name is Mongolian for "palaces". I doubt many people would move there from the heavily populated east coast to live is what is already seen as a ghost town, let alone one that has a Mongolian name. It's also a mining town if that means anything.

That nude scene in Borat was pretty funny.

I've wanted to visit Astana since learning about it a few years ago. These central Asian countries are actually quite interesting in my opinion.

There is a significant portion of the city that is poor housing though (not like Somali slums or something, but a lot of it is Soviet style apartments with poor infrastructure and some of the more rural parts aren't the best) which is a side these images aren't showing you. The good parts of Astana seems alright though.

They had a pretty big mining boom at one point. People were making lots of money and developers bought up land and basically started putting together this huge city. Ordos was supposed to be the next thing but for some reason, no one really thought ahead and once the mining resources depleted, the city died.
