Administrative Divisions

The administrative divisions of Izaland

The Republic of Izaland is divided into 29 local entities, including 24 prefectures (縣, ken), the Capital Special Administration District (首都特別自治区, Shuto tukubyeschitsiku), the special city of Warohan (深湾特別市, Warohan tukubyesshi) and the special territory of Yenkaido Prefecture (遠海土, Yenkaido). At the same time, in the north of Kubori Island La Piana (等平奈領, La Pyāna ryō) is located. La Piana is de facto a Plevian speaking independent entity, although certain political functions such as foreign relations and defense are managed by Izaland on behalf.

After these subdivisions, according to the size of the settlement, cities (市, -shi), towns (町, -chō), and villages (村, -son) are found. Criteria for these categories vary according to the different prefecture, but in general cities must have a population of at least 50,000 people, towns between 15,000 and 49,999, and villages under 15,000. There are cities even with less than 50,000 people, as well as towns with more than 50,000, such as Nappawa (78.669 people).

With a population of more than 117 millions of inhabitants, Izaland is a heavily densely populated country (about 385 people per sq km), especially considering that vast inner areas of Kubori island and the north-east are not interested by an intensive urban development. The 92,1 of the population belongs to the Izaki ethnicity, with the remaining 7,9% being immigrants, mostly from Pasundan-Padjadjaran, Wiwaxia and Commonia's countries, and other expats from other countries in Uletha (Belphenia, Kojo, Saikyel). The population of Izaland is largely urban, as the major economic centers since the beginning of industrialization have attracted a large part of the young population from rural areas.

Race

It is difficult to trace a genetic profile of the Izanish race, as since the dawn of time there has been a profound mixture of different ethnic groups, both Uletian and Arcanthic. Physiognomically, Izanish people's face appears to be of an oriental type, with dark hair, black almond-shaped eyes and a slightly pronounced nose. However, there is no lack of genotypes belonging to more Western races, such as lighter colored eyes (ocher, olive green and, very rarely, blue) and hair tending to brown.

Urban planning

A characteristic of the territorial development of Izaki urban centers lies in the fact that, compared to other nations, there are few small isolated villages, while the number of large and medium-sized cities is greater. This is due not only to a greater ease in the distribution of goods, but also to the ancient philosophy of "jiyenchohwashisān" (自然調和思想), or "thought of harmony with nature", drawn up from the 5th century BC by the Taemasa dynasty.

This method of land planning was based on both scientific and astrological criteria, and the positioning of towns and villages was well defined. As the Taemasa dynasty aggregated, through conquests, new territories that had independently developed their regional urban planning, it came, in certain cases, to relocate entire villages, if they did not respect the precepts of the "jiyenchohwashisān".

Although urban planning is still based on modern criteria, the ministry of the environment keeps a careful eye in order to avoid land consumption in the territory.

Major metropolitan areas

Izaland is a high-densely populated country, and most of its population lives in urbanized areas. In addition to the Greater Sainðaul area (about 23.4 million inhabitants), other noteworthy metropolitan areas are that of Warohan-Eyenniyul (15 million), Panaireki (5.6 million), Kichatsura (3.2 million), Isadashi (2.7 million), Shirukami-Sahnajima (1.7 million), Makkeriya (Riyatoma and Makkenoke, 2.9 million), Sannupuri (2.2 million), Daishin (1.6 million), Ikkashiya-Katayoshi ( 1.7 million) and Reilusahna (1.5 million).

Other towns of some importance are, in no particular order: Atsujīl, Sagoma, Kanlisahna, Muanake, Jinneisoke, Nagareki and Poridake. The list of the main metropolitan areas (consideres as "community of commuters to the central city") follows.
