Remiville, most commonly Ryushime (and commonly referred to as Belphenia City, formerly Edeiwyn), is the capital of Belphenia. It is also the state capital of Sakura. It is the oldest city ever in Belphenia ahead of Eraede and the first largest city ahead of Magehaven.

Remiville had an estimated population of 3,655,993 in 2014, the most populous city in Belphenia ahead of Shirahoshi and Zerephine City.

Etymology

The name "Ryushime" is derived from Great Heart words Ryushimi, and Nohomime, meaning "Endless Wind" in the Nihonish language. The first known reference to the city of Remiville as "Ryushime" was by samurai Toko Hiiragi in 1557 referring to constant, windy weather conditions. Saoko Nonoshimi, the Angels of the Celestial Sky guild master, named the city as "Ryushime" during the events of the Uprising of Magehaven in 1558.


Contemporary history

In March 2015, 100% of the Remiville Metropolitan Area were modernized amid the suspension of Reback's redevelopment project on the Reback-Duranth International Airport. Because of the suspension in Drevet, all Reback workers have been transferred to the Remiville International Airport redevelopment project in Magehaven, Remiville.

On March 31, 2015, Remiville Prefecture was renamed to Sakura Prefecture to clear up the confusion between Remiville and the prefecture of the same name.
