Jyilzyem is the capital city of the micronation: Kingdom of Auvenum. It is the most populous settlement (as of November 2019) of the nation. Jyilzyem is settled by 76.7% of the nation's population.



Government

Jyilzyem has a few government buildings. One of which is the Auvenese Parliament which is responsible for passing laws. The main executive building is known as the "Royal Palace", which is located in the Federal District and is closed off to all visitors except for close, personal friends of Gilzem and the royal family.



Etymology

The city of Jyilzyem was named after the first "Presydent" of Aenderia, Russell Gilzem. It's unclear where the name "Gilzem" comes from, but some believe it means "Land Keeper" in old Aenderian. Around a month after the city of "Gilzem" was erected as the capital of Aenderia, it was later changed because the Presydent wanted to "prevent the name of Gilzem being mispronounced," and after a small vote of the ALC (Aenderian Lawmakers Committee)[1], the name of "Gilzem" was promptly changed to "Jyilzyem" (pronounced Y-ilz-yEm) to fit a more bona fide Aenderian connotation. Gilzem was eventually removed from political office after an unjust and motion filed by the newly-elected Horatio Eden. Thus, the Countless protests led to no cause, eventually bringing Jyilzyem and the Kir Islands to secede from Aenderia. Currently, Auvenum is the largest city in Auvenum, and it has been for the entire year Auvenum was an independent nation.
