The Region of Gonn (Sabian: akurói goninn), often referred to as the Gonn (gonnán) is one of the five first-tier administrative divisions of Sabia and Verona, and alongside the City of Alios, one of the two first-tier administrative divisions comprising Sabia and Verona's Southern Territories. Unlike the Northern regions, Gonn is directly administered by the central government through a governor. It's divided into three prefectures: Monesari, Sato, and Kotavari. The region was originally a part of the now defunct Alios-Capital Region, which intended to bind together all of the districts that originally conformed the city of Alios. This arrangement, however, proved to be difficult to manage as it was a very large and populated area.[1]

The region officially contains and co-administers alongside the national government the Doga Runann dependency, which contains the Doga Runann Nature Reserve and makes up nearly 70% of Sabia and Verona's claimed territory, also making Gonn by far the largest region in the Kingdom, at 46,870 m2. Most of Gonn's territory is also just Doga Runann, and without it, the region is merely 63.11 m2 in size.

Etymology

The word gonn means "tunnel" or "portal" in Middle Sabian. It was chosen because of the region's position as the literal gateway to the rest of the Southern Territories, chiefly Alios.[1]

Government and administration

Unlike the other regions in the Northern Territories, the Gonn is considered a "centralized region" by the Constitution of Sabia and Verona, and is thus administered directly by the central government through the Governor of the Region of Gonn, who is elected in free elections by the region's population and responds to the Parliament. Unlike the "autonomous regions" of the North, the Gonn does not count with a Regional Council of its own and relies on the Governor and the Parliament to dictate regional law. The current governor is Dovedán Pashor, of the Democratic Party. Pashor was elected in 2018.

Administrative divisions

The territory spanned by the Region of Gonn is divided into three prefectures and two dependency. The three prefectures are Monesari, Sato, and Kotavari, the capital. The dependencies are Gin Voltaxi, which spans the southern section of the region, and Doga Runann, which is split up from the rest of the Southern Territories and is subjected to a special administrative regime in which it is co-administered by the Gonn regional government and the national government through the Botany Division.
