Cities of Oceana

The 12,736,521 citizens of the Republic of Oceana are heavily situated in the central belt, and particularly around Emporium and Glaschu.

Towns and villages have existed in Oceana for several millenia, but it wasn't until the beginning of the 12th century that these places were grated city status by Royal Charter. Most cities grew around a fort, a castle or a cathedral, which became a requisite for a place being granted city status. Notable exceptions are Glaschu, Brathsund, Korken, and Clutha City, which were granted city status in the late 19th and early 20th centuries as they became hubs for industry and grew at a rapid pace.

Before 2010 there were no counties in Oceana, and local barons were granted control of areas around the Kingdom, under the authority of the Crown. In the aftermath of the Revolution various counties were created as constituencies for the purpose of Parliamentary seats. These counties, at the moment and for the most part, are named after the local council centres.

The cities encompass much of the constituency they are situated in, in terms of influence. As there are numerous cities and towns in the Republic, the list below focuses on the 32 constituency capitals. The Republic is divided into 5 districts:

District District Capital Largest City Population (2010)
West Oceana Glaschu Glaschu 4,585,148
