Culture | Eothasia

The Unified Eothasi Socialist Republic is an extremely diverse country, with a multitude of important national landmarks, parks, tourist locations, and otherwise simple areas made notorious through a powerful culture that is displayed in thousands of plays, cinema, and other important works of art and literature. Being rich in culture —and, of course, embracing this multiculturalism— has allowed the Empire to occupy a unique location amongst its neighbours, offering a wide catalogue of locations for all future tourists.

Despite having hundreds of cities with hundreds of thousands of residents, not to mention the thousands of smaller towns and villages that dot the landscape and provide absolute guarantees of viewing the night sky like never before seen, the Ministry of Tourism has believed that this list of marvellous landmarks of Eothasia need be narrowed down to a select few with which the first intrepid travellers can become acquainted before venturing to the open fields of the peninsula. Precisely this is what the Ministry has done in this tourist guide: below, we select four of the major cities in the Empire, each of them with millions of inhabitants and with plenty of important attractions for tourists to visit and discover.

The first of these cities is, undoubtedly, the capital of the Empire: Valtoria. Not only because of its immense history, filled with acts of political and symbolic importance and becoming the centre of the Aterni Empire which would give way to the Empire, but because of the enormous attractions it also offers more modern visitors. The second is Lithandril, the largest city in the country, capital of the Republic of Venza. It is one of the most important cities in the centre of the country and holds a special place in the hearts of many Bretons, because it was there that Priscilla Poriér, the leader of the magnificent socialist revolution that brought peace and prosperity to Eothasia after a decade under the dictatorial grasp of the so-called ‘Union of Eothasi Republics’, was born. The third city is the city of Isa, also the fourth largest city in the country and the second in Venza, after Lithandril. It is an important port city in the centre-south of the country, and provides a key point for international commerce given its close connection to other important cities, such as Lithandril itself or Varona. The fourth and final city is Vallenfell, the capital of the Republic of Espinar. This is the third largest city in the country

Each of these cities is an important key to the heart of Eothasia, and each have their own grace and poise that make them wonderful cities to visit and learn both about Eothasia and about oneself.

Valtoria is the capital city of the UESR and the second largest within its borders, boasting a population of over seven million inhabitants and an economic prowess unmatched by any other city in the country, producing over five hundred billion pound rubies of economic output per year. It is one of the richest and most economically active cities in the country, in part thanks to its history as the capital of the Aterni Empire, and also thanks to its strategic location between the Republics of Aterni and Antizon as well as its river to the shoreline, which allows shipping to move quickly into and out of the city.

The capital hosts a number of historical monuments which are definitely worth visiting. This includes such monuments as the Statue of Priscilla in Revolution Square, in the district of Ebner, which reminds passers-by of the fight carried on by our ancestors to ensure that the rights and obligations that we have today were finally obtained, and for us not to forget that fight, as it will someday be our turn to fight for the rights of our descendents. It’s a large stone statue that towers above the square at over thirty meters tall, and shines brightly in the sunshine over Valtoria, when the weather permits.

It is also home to the Magister’s Palace, a structure used by the Imperial Family of the Aterni Empire as the main building where less important members of Government would be taken when they requested an audience with the Emperor, as they were oftentimes deemed unworthy to step into the Imperial Palace. The Magister’s Lair —which, after the takeover of the military coup with the Union of Eothasi Republics, was sacked and nearly destroyed— is nowadays a museum, where artifacts of an ancient history in Eothasia are displayed. Amongst them are important artefacts such as the crown worn by Duvaineth when she declared the United Eothasi Kingdoms, or documentation of the first discovery of phoenixes in the UESR.

Apart from the historical monuments, there are also structures that are currently prevalent. These include the Capitolium, current home to the Supreme Imperial Parliament in both its chambers, as well as the Nexus, Federal Conclave when undertaking their duties in Valtoria. There is also the Imperial Palace, which on Sundays for three hours is partially open to the public for sightseeing.

In a more down-to-Earth tone, the city is filled with hundreds of pubs, restaurants, dance clubs, arcade centres, bowling alleys, cinemas, escape rooms, and hundreds of activities that could certainly give anyone a wonderful time.

Valtoria has over three hundred underground rapid transit public transport stations split amongst thirteen lines, servicing a daily average of approximately four and a half million people. This system is thorough and well-connected, and allows for transit from one end of the city to the other in record-breaking times. In addition to the underground, there are over twenty-two thousand bus stops, including tourist bus routes, as well as an overground rail with over one hundred and fifty stations. As with all cities in the Empire, the taxi service is exclusively public and is at an accessible price for all citizens, residents, and visitors to the city.
