Hálison and Orterrado are both the capital cities of the state while Orterrado is also the largest city in Laine.

Etymology

The origin of the name "Laine" is unknown. One theory is that the name comes from the old name on the city of Northeastern Port, "La Entrada" (lit. The Entrance). The city used to be the maine maritime entrance to the state untill the construction of the Orterrado port in 1807.

Another theory, and the most accepted one, is that the name comes from a translation of a name in the Elādig'ëan language, a native language spoken in the region. In Elādeg'ëan, the western area of Laine was called "Ākso'sgo'ï", meaning "walking down the hill". In the 1700s the name for arable land at the foot of a hill in Ingerish was "Laine"[1], therefore it is believed to be an attempt to translate the native. Ākso'sgo'ï is still accepted as the name of the state in the native language.
