Stradworth, officially the Federal City of Stradworth is the capital city of Deodeca and of the Odeka District. Its population was found to be TBD according to the recent 2020 census, an estimated increase of TBD.
The city was established in 1880 as a planned city, following a national dispute as to where the capital should be. The existing town of Stradworth was selected, it being roughly between Kingstown and Lamington (the-then two biggest contenders) upon the Odeka River. Following a national design referendum, the layout of Stradworth was designed by Asperian architect Gyles Monroy. The city's core was finished in 1885 and soon the Parliament was moved to the city, making the capitalization of Stradworth official. Over time, the administrative and governmental importance of Stradworth grew, as most of the nation's institutions based their headquarters and firms there. Today, Stradworth is dominated by the government sector with most of its residents working for the federal government. Its manufacturing and tourism industries are on the rise, as its image as a productive, attractive city has been increasing.
The downtown is dominated by historic buildings, older streets, and many open spaces (an integral element of Monroy's plan). The central square of the city leads off to many important national institutions and buildings.
Stradworth is also an important military hub, as many of the Deodecan Armed Forces bases and training facilities are situated here. Stradworth's academic institutions are also renowned, especially the Deodecan National University. This has given Stradworth a growing notion as a 'university city'.
The city entirely encompasses the Odeka District, of which it is also the administrative seat of, therefore, many of the city's aspects are shared with the district's.
Lord Hendrick Bowers was a prominent patron of schools in the city. Many schools and even a suburb are named in his honour.
