Remiville, officially the City-State of Remiville and commonly referred to as Belphenia City, is a city-state and capital of Belphenia. The discovery of Belphenia in 2007 resulted in the creation of a city-state beside Lake Chesuncook. As a city-state, it is therefore part of the prefecture of the same name.

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

Modern History

On April 5, 2011, protesters, superheroes, and terrorists destroyed much of Remiville and its surrounding suburbs in a dispute over an immediate ban on fictional characters in video game media depicting superhuman abilities involving psychic powers, resulting in more than 850,000,000,000 sapphire in damages, and almost all of Remiville was completely destroyed, with its surrounding areas like Indorur, Gargatha, Diamond Moon, Mion, and Soleanna succumbed to total destruction. The city and its surrounding suburbs suffered grave economic damage and largest loss of human, dragon, and mermaid life in the aftermath of the April 5, 2011 attacks on Belphenia. The rebuilding of Remiville and its suburbs, rebuilt the old downtown area and created a new downtown area northeast from the original downtown area, new cities, towns, and villages, and a 4/05 memorial and museum, along with new Interstate highways and new infrastructure in a rapid rebuilding project launched by the Housing and Urban Development Council and the Workers' Party of Belphenia. The Remiville Expo Centre, which opened on May 13th, 2007, was also severely damaged in the attack, and had to be demolished and rebuilt. The Remiville Sky Tower is the tallest structure in Belphenia by pinnacle height, which its spire reaches an iconic 2,007 feet (612.3 metres) in reference to Reiko Beard's founding of Belphenia.

On January 17th, 2014, an ice storm froze most parts of the city and the north suburbs along with a blizzard, causing widespread power outages.
