MAP
Aminey & Amillon

Aminey is one of Ko-oren's largest cities at a population of 1.136.254, its majority language is French, and falls just north of the cutoff line for a mediterranean vs a temperate climate. As a result, Aminey has a friendly climate, though rain may fall during any season. The city lies about 2/3rds of the way up the southern coast of the Bay of Ko-oren, close to all of Ko-oren's metropolises. Historically, Aminey was a contrarian city, close to, but shielded from the legalese and politics of the Mayara/Gehrenna group of capital cities. From here, Aminey developed into a rich city of free thinkers, artists, and the occasional rebel. Amillon lies just to the south, starting out as a far smaller town. As Aminey grew, Amillon flourished along with it.

MAP
Greencaster

Greencaster lies in in the centre of the southern gulf. Where most of Ko-oren has often looked inward, Greencaster looks outward, and its location reflects that. It's right on the one side of Ko-oren that looks out over the rest of Atlantian Oceania, and Greencaster is right there to welcome every and all visitors. Greencaster contains Ko-oren's largest port. The employment opportunites, the nearby breadbasket, and the temperate climate have made the city into Ko-oren's largest in the last 100 years. Before that, it was a small town, often ignored, on the outer periphery of Ko-oren. Greencaster is Ko-oren's version of a modern, planned city, containing many cultures and subcultures, and the closest you'll come to big city life within Ko-oren.

MAP
Willowbourne
Willowbourne is right in the middle of western Ko-oren. For centuries, the city was a small provincial town used to administrate all of southwestern Ko-oren, before that started developing. Now, Willowbourne is in the middle of the large plains in central Ko-oren with great connections to Greencaster, Aminey and the four capitals. The city's climate is a bit different from most of its surroundings, experiencing both cold winters and hot summers. In the last century, Willowbourne has developed into somewhat of a sporting capital, between the Hall of Fame, the Willowbowl, and having teams in four of Ko-oren's seven major sports.

MAP
Mayara-Gehrenna-Maethoru-Senoren
The four capital cities of Mayara, Gehrenna, Maethoru and Senoren have been at the centre of the Ko-orenite state and administration since the dawn of the nation. That is why there is so much there: we are looking at nearly four dozen centuries of settlements. Well hidden at the base of the Bay of Ko-oren, it is close to the Western Range, close to April river and the towns beyond it, but also close to Aminey and Willowbourne. Classical Ko-orenite, also known as Gehrennan, is still spoken here and the traditional long Ko-orenite names are still given to newborns as well. This area harbours the political centre of Ko-oren, and those from the province will have you know that it's the economical and cultural centre too - and more.

MAP
Llandy & Mawrystwyth
Llandy and Mawrystwyth are located on the far southwestern peninsula of Ko-oren's mainland. Llandy is the shire's capital, while Mawrystwyth is the slightly larger and more touristic town. Even if you add the towns' populations together, they are still considered a small provincial town. Still, they are the largest settlement on Ko-oren's west coast. Many of the nation's most scenic places are within a few hours from Llandy and Mawrystwyth, and on top of that, visiting these towns is a treat during any season. While the population is largely multilingual, as with most Ko-orenites, the one hurdle is that the predominant language is a 'native' language, named Ko-Gaelic, showing features of languages such as Welsh and Irish.

Maynard
Maynard is in a great position. Rural, but close to large population centres, at the foot of a mountain range, close to the nation's breadbasket, and with a great sporting tradition. It does get a bit cold in winter, though Maynard is an excellent HQ for anyone visiting Ko-oren during the other seasons. Maynard has great weather as well, given it lies in what's commonly called Leeshire: the part of the mainland just behind the mountains, shielded from most precipitation. Soccer, rugby union and cricket are staples here, and they're generally quite good at it.

MAP
Ansonville
Ansonville is a provincial city both blessed and cursed by its location. Blessed because it's so close to large cities like Greencaster, it's the de facto capital of Ko-oren's agricultural region, and it's also close to scenic mountain towns like Aubury and Maynard. It's cursed in the sense that it is close to everything, not at anything, which means most people know Ansonville as that one city you pass through in order to get to your destination. Still, the stable climate and the relative peace means it's a popular place to settle down in, away from big city life.

MAP
Burnet
Burnet is located on Ko-oren's eighth largest island, off of the south coast. Over the years, it has developed its own community. Its economy is largely based on tourism, as well as fishing and agriculture. Many crops only grow on Ko-oren's eastern islands in Yoshima province... and around Burnet, which gives it a funny vibe between Ko-oren's fast, modern life and quiet rural life. It is also the only area of Ko-oren with volcanic activity.

MAP
Cirelbourne & Bruncester
Cirelbourne and Bruncester are two mining cities, hidden deep away on the south coast, between the sea and a mountain range. The two cities get a lot of flak for not being environmental, traditional and a bit backwards, and on top of that they have a fierce rivalry between them as well. In recent years, the focus on mining disappeared a tiny bit, and leisure took off - finally recognising the unique landscape to their immediate north. Still, if you're looking for hard, honest workers, they're here.

Eaglebury

Eaglebury is the capital of West Strand Riding, probably Ko-oren's oddest subdivision. The subdivision is one long, thin strip of land between the northwestern mountain range and the coast, where the cold and windy climate runs free. Eaglebury itself is remote, though accessible from the north, the south, and now even the east, across the mountains, from Idyllwild. Historically, it may not always have been easy to live in the city, but it sure is captivating, gorgeous, and liberating. Hikes are never far away, but don't forget that Eaglebury itself also has plenty to offer, from culture, to sports, to education.

Aevanna

Aevanna is the largest city on the islands of Aerellen, in Ko-oren's far northeast. While most of the country's climate is friendly and hospitable, Aerellen is a frigid place, with the possibility of year-round near-freezing temperatures. The city's centre is located in a somewhat sheltered area, but the sprawl dictates that some suburbs lie in the less sheltered areas beyond. The people are experts at surviving these conditions, needing something to do in the long winter nights, and have taken to music, ice hockey, arts, and so on. Despite the temperature, the weather is quite stable and the national space agency is not far away from here either.

MAP
Schemerdrecht & Sterrenwolde

Schemerdrecht and Sterrenwolde are located on the north shore of the Bay of Ko-oren, around which the centre of the Ko-orenite state was established. Even though the cities are counted as 'northern' (and thus dark, cold, and occasionally miserable), they actually lie south of Aminey, which is seen as a 'southern' city (and thus happy, warm, and bright). Schemerdrecht has been the centre of Ko-orenite commerce for a very, very long time and its harbour is still of strategic importance. Sterrenwolde is a smaller city renowned for its harbour, as well as its gardens and schools. While the cities are not very different culturally, it is often said that the work is done in Schemerdrecht while people are just looking at work being done in Sterrenwolde. Nowadays, the cities are even more similar: great universities, parks, gardens, city life, and sports are available in both.
