Igilaē (igilɛː) is the thirties largest city in the Republic of Kojo. Most notably it is the seat of Kojo's highest courts. Alongside with the city of Kari it holds local branches of all crucial branches of government, which otherwise exclusively reside in the capital Pyingshum; this is mostly a preventive measure for unexpected times of war in the otherwise strictly centralist organised nation, and with regards to the courts also physically represents the distance between the executive and judicary branch of government. Hence the supreme courts of Kojo reside in the city with their main branch.

History

The city grew around the Baroque [OGF-equivalent?] Anchaen Palaē Palace built from 1716 - 1721 by Surb-Anchaen-Taihē from the Pyilser-krun'a Dynasty as a pleasure palace; from then until the overthrow of the monarchy in 1828 the city was called "Anchaen so Kyūkaē", lit. "Anchaen's Rest". With the abolishing of the monarchy the city was renamed to its current name, which is the name of the small village that stood near the town's modern site before the palace was built, and the juridictional branch of the newly formed government moved here from its temporary facilities in Pyingshum in 1837. The reasoning behind this measure was that th newly established courts were quickly found to be overly favourable towards the newly forming political elite, and to encourage a jurisprudence that was unaffected by politcal turmoil in the capital.
