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).

Warohan (深灣特別市, Warohan tukubyesshi; IPA reading: /'wa:rohan/) is the second largest city of Izaland, located in the southwestern part of Kubori Island within a deeply rugged inlet. The name comes from this location and means "deep bay". With a population of over 6 million, rising to around 10 million when the metropolitan area is included, Warohan is an important international port, controlling traffic within the Sound of Pa.

Warohan is located in the innermost part of Warohan Bay, and its formidable position has protected the city from invasions and intruders. In particular, during the Khaiwan period, the ancient Ipseris built many fortifications along the bifurcated forms of the coastline that led from the open sea to the harbour.

Today's Warohan territory is spread over a 500 square kilometre peninsula that separates Warohan Bay from the lagoon to the east. The historic centre of Warohan is on Kokennaka Island, linked to the modern city by the old Kogyo Bridge and the newer Irasone Tunnel.

Panaireki (若浦市 - File:Panaireki in kasechi.png Panaireki-shi; IPA reading: /pa'naj:reki/) is the third largest city of Izaland, located more or less in the center of the west coast of Kubori island within an ample bay (Ōhan bay). Panaireki hosts the prestigious Panaireki Institute of Technology (PIT), one of the most advanced research centers in the field of medicine and nanotechnologies worldwide, and thus attract a wide number of students from Izaland and Eastern Uletha as well as many farmaceutical companies. Among them, in Panaireki we can find the headquarters of Naðuro Yakujai, an important medicines developer.

Geography

Panaireki is located in the center of a wide bay, protected by a handful of islands and some peninsulas, thus has been an important port since prehistoric times. The city develops on a wide plain area with almost no hills or mountains, and this allowed it to stretch in many directions more easily than other cities. Two rivers, the Etsukui and the Shwamul make their way to the sea by passing through Panaireki center.

Islands

Some islands are located off-shore the main city: Kinchōri (金丁里) right in front of the port, Ihanus, a former volcanic island topped by the 1128 m Mount Sashamui, and the uninhabited island of Roroyo (絽絽与), right south the former. The port area is made of 8 man made islands, built between 1991 and 2016 to expand the cargo port, which is one of the most actives in the country.

Lakes

Panaireki city boundaries also include a certain number of natural lakes, what remains of a former marsh, reclaimed in the 20th century during the role of King Atsakin VI. The most remarkable remaining lakes are the Nemishoha, the Utsama and the Genjō lakes, oasis of peace and relax for many locals as well as tourists.

Demography

Panaireki, with a population of 3,2 million inhabitants is the third largest city in Izaland, and including the neighboring cities, the metro area population reaches 5,289,446 inhabitants (2019). If we include the suburban area of Kichatsura city, located 70 km north, the Panaireki-Kichatsura megalopolis (若亀大都市圏, Nyakki daitoshiken) counts x.xxx.xxx people, making it the second most populated region in Izaland after the capital, and before Warohan city area.
