Alios (/ˈæ.ljɒs/ Sabian: [ˈaɫjɔs]), officially the City of Alios (loš aliosinn) is the capital and largest city of the Kingdom of Sabia and Verona. Alongside the region of Gonn it forms part of the Southern Territories of the Sabioveronese claims, laying 4800 miles south of the claims in the Valtir, known as the Northern Territories. It has been the capital city of Sabia and Verona since its establishment on 25 August 2015, replacing Salisse as the Kingdom's administrative center.

The city is home to the the official residence of the Prime Minister; and the Daora Tairagao, the building where the Parliament and Supreme Court convene. Most of the city's landmarks are located in Darmosari, the southernmost of the city's three districts

History

Before the foundation of Alios, the capital and economic center of Sabia and Verona was the city of Salisse, located in the region of Sabia. Plans to move the capital surged in mid-2015, when the Haronos Plan was publicized. Alios was founded by participants of stage 1 of the Haronos Plan, which first arrived in what is now Poméxelos on 25 August 2015.[1] Shortly after its foundation, the Sabioveronese immigrants met with Aliosik natives who became citizens of Sabia and Verona, embracing Pahunism and the Sabian culture and language. These citizens, alongside the new Valtirians settlers, helped the newly founded city of Alios grow economically as the Kingdom's largest and most active city.

The city was originally part of the Alios-Capital region, which disbanded a few months after its creation due to its large size and the difficulties of its administration.[2] A large part of the city's territory was ceded to the new region of Gonn.

Geography

Districts

The city is divided into four districts: Darmosari, Monesari, Kodesari and Sejê-Kepren, which are further subdivided into a number of unofficial neighborhoods. Darmosari is the most populated district, and the center of political and economic activity, housing the grounds of the national and local governments, the Parliament House, the Hâret Tadesosann (the offices of the Tribunal) and the headquarters of the Dogashebanke. The district of Monesari is an important hub for the Sabioveronese military, headquartering the Royal Auror Corps. Despite being the largest in size, Kodesari is the least populated of the three districts. Sejê-Kepren is the gateway connecting Alios with the Gonn and the outside world; the district takes its name for the Sejê pass.

Politics

As per constitutional convention, as part of the Southern Territories, the citizens of Alios hold all of the national political power in the Kingdom. Only Aliosik and Gonnik citizens may become members of either of the three sounosy of the Sabioveronese state, and only citizens of these divisions may vote on parliamentary elections. While citizens in the Northern Territories of Sabia and Verona are technically autonomous and are entitled to handle their own political affairs through the Legislative Assemblies and the United Assembly of Regions, the Parliament topples regional law and is considered foremost among the Kingdom's legislatures. This system is a result of the Haronos Plan which came into effect on the day of the city's foundation, on 25 August 2015.

The city itself is almost directly administered by the central government of the Kingdom, which relies on the Chief of Government of Alios to look after the city's affairs. Originally, the Chief of Government was known as the Governor of Alios, and had control over all of the Southern Territories as they were united as part of the Alios-Capital Region. The current Chief of Government is Étienne Boulin of the National Artists' Guild, who also briefly served as Governor of the Alios-Capital region.[2]
