The origins of the city are lost in history. The oldest remains of permanent settlement date back to the first century, but since the river discharging into the ocean here is the largest (and one of only few reliable year-round) source of surface drinking water for most of the region, it is very likely that the area had been settled even before that. Combined with the access to the ocean, the city always has been the trading centre for its vast but sparsely populated hinterland.

Since 457 and until the Kojolese unification in 1668, the city continuously had been seat of a hereditary ruler. However, despite then technically being part of the Kojolese Kingdom under the Pyilser Krun'a Dynasty ruling from Pyingshum, the city and much of today's [[Fóskiman-iki]] was de-facto governed by the De Croix ("De Kwá") family, which had assisted the Pyilser Krun'a dynasty to overthrow the previous rulers in the area and were in return handed control of the area. With the democratic revolution in 1834 the family was forced to step down and had their lives spared. The De Kwá family is one of few former noble families still existing in modern Kojo.

In the middle of the 19th century the city experienced rapid growth and became a centre of the industrial revolution in western Kojo, making use of it's strategic location at the sea, the ressource extraction that took place in the hinterland, and its position as a gateway to Ataraxia. The first railway in Kojo operated here, between the edge of the old city centre and the coastal resort town Sólaeiman, less than 4 km south. The city grew rapidly around the historic core and new industrial facilities, but the sprawl was largely unregulated and poor hygiene conditions combined with horrible traffic made the city a very unpleasant place to live in for most. Additionally, the need for a central railway station became more and more apparent, as up to this point there were separate stations for east- and westbound railways.

The river Shimjur, the only non-intermittent body of water in the region, ends in two large freshwater lagoons before discharging into the [[Sound of Pa]].  The terrain is flat, with numerous other, smaller brackwater lagoons lining the coast. As a result the amount of available shoreline is much larger than the border between the Sound of Pa and the main land taken by itself. The lagoons form a unique habitat for many plants and animals, while also serving as a recreational space and source of drinking water for the many inhabitants of Finkyáse and the surrounding cities. The conflicts emerging from these dual uses like threatening salinisation of the lagoons, wildlife preservation efforts, tourism or prices of drinking water are important topics in local politics and media.

Long term plans include transforming Kū Ántibes re Chezi to an underground stop, and to consolidate the services in such a way that all trains can then continue to Chin Ántibes re Chezi. These plans are still in earöy planning stage, and might be carried out once the Ésubān connects the underground terminus to the central railway station. In the very long term the two AFZH lines might be connected either through Zúkshi re Chezi or an underground route through the old town's harbour area, but feasibility is yet to be proven.

Finkyáse (finˈkjase, old script: 噴脚背) is the second largest city in Kojo, situated in the south west of the country at the Sound of Pa. The city is sometimes seen as an anti-pole to the country's primate city and capital, Pyingshum.

History

The origins of the city are lost in history. The oldest remains of permanent settlement date back to the first century, but since the river's discharge into the ocean here is the largest source of surface drinking water for most of the region (and only reliable year-round) it is very likely that the area had been settled even before that. Combined with the access to the ocean, the city always has been the trading centre for its vast but sparsely populated hinterland.

Since 457 and until the Kojolese unification in 1668, the city continuously had been seat of a hereditary ruler. However, despite technically becoming part of the Kojolese Kingdom under the Pyilser Krun'a Dynasty which was seated ub Pyingshum, the city and much of today's Fóskiman-iki was de-facto governed by the De Croix ("De Kwá") family, which had assisted the Pyilser Krun'a dynasty to overthrow the previous rulers in the area and were in return handed control of the area. With the democratic revolution in 1834 the family was forced to step down and had their lives spared. The De Kwá family is one of few former noble families still existing in modern Kojo.

In the middle of the 19th century the city experienced rapid growth and became a centre of the industrial revolution in western Kojo, making use of its strategic location at the sea, the resource extraction that took place in the hinterland, and its position as a gateway to Ataraxia. The first railway in Kojo operated here, between the edge of the old city centre and the coastal town Sólaeiman, less than 4 km to the south-west. The city grew rapidly around the historic core and new industrial facilities, but the sprawl was largely unregulated and poor hygiene conditions combined with horrible traffic made the city a very unpleasant place to live in for most. Additionally, the need for a central railway station became more and more apparent, as up to this point there were separate stations for east- and westbound railways.

The city drafted a master plan for expansion, based on a large grid pattern and including a generously built new railway terminus. This, combined with its standardised building footprint, has had a lasting impact on the city scape until today.

From the 1960's on the city built new port facilities in the west, and the old marina in the city centre today is used for recreational use, ferries and cruise ships.

Geography

The river Shimjur, the only non-intermittent body of water in the region, ends in two large freshwater lagoons before discharging into the Sound of Pa. The terrain is flat, with numerous other, smaller brackwater lagoons lining the coast. As a result the amount of available shoreline is much larger than the border between the Sound of Pa and the main land taken by itself. The lagoons form a unique habitat for many plants and animals, while also serving as a recreational space and source of drinking water for the many inhabitants of Finkyáse and the surrounding cities. The conflicts emerging from these dual uses like threatening salinisation of the lagoons, wildlife preservation efforts, tourism or prices of drinking water are important topics in local politics and media.

AFZH

Ántibes-Finkyáse-Zúkshi Hyengzidō, short AFZH, is a private suburban railway that was formed in 2001 when the formerly separate Ántibes-Finkyáse Hyengzidō and Butenki Hyengshō Sanan merged. The railway owns and runs trains on two railway lines, one from Ántibes towards Finkyáse terminating either in the (old) "Ántibes re Chezi" or in the newer underground terminus "Rébolueshoncha". The other line comes from Zúkshi (Fóskiman h.) and runs partially parallel to KHS tracks, until following a path closer to the coast after Pinyalsul, from where it heads to the terminus Zúkshi re Chezi next to the old city centre.

Stopping patterns for the different train types on the Ántibes branch and the Zúkshi branch can be found underneath. As KHS's KC and KCP trains to the east run parallel to the Zúkshi branch for large portions, their schedule is shown as well, despite running on different tracks and being operated by a different company.

There is currently construction ongoing to complete the tunnel between Ántibes re Chezi and Finkyase Main Station to integrate the Ántibes branch into the city's Ésubān system. Questions of ownership and operation are yet to be solved.

There are no night services on the Zúkshi branch, however KHS runs night trains on its largely parallel route on Friday and Saturday.

The first trains usually depart at 5 o'clock am, with the last trains departing around 22:30.
Night services commence at 23:00 and depart every full hour until 4:00. On the Ántibes line, there is one additional rapid express train on both rapid expresses during the morning rush hour.

Finkyáse International Airport to the north of the city centre is on of Kojo's 5 airports designated for international airfare, and one of only three airports with at least two parallel runways. It's the country's second busiest airport, handling about 14 million passengers every year and 126,000 flight movements.
