Ħasrija is the largest city in Jilrit Province, and the main port for Cildania. Its population of around three million is spread across around 500 Sq km, and due to it's size and the fact that it is only in the last fifty or so years that the city has come together it is actually divided into three municipalities, each with it's own services, council and mayor.
Many visitors to the city are struck by the dirt noise and bustle, which is at it's height in the early hours of the morning.
The richest municipality is the centrally located Ynysatrei, however as well as the central business district it also has huge working class estates, high rise tower blocks and sprawling housing schemes, it's current mayor is actually a member of the Cildanian Communist Party. The dominanance of the CCP in the district has led to some business leaders and wealthy residents to demand that a new municipality be created from the 'higher class' areas.
