Produzland, officially, the Kingdom of Produzland (Produz: O Reino de Proádusia), is an sovereign state in Greater Olympus. Produzland is located on the western half of the Orthurian Peninsula in Southwest Lira. Produzland borders the Aurum Ocean in the west, and Achkadia in the North-East, as well as Parthonopia. The Kingdom covers an area of XXXX square kilometers with an oceanic and mediterranean climate. It is a parliamentary constitutional monarchy with 38 million inhabitants (2014) and King Joseph IV as king since 2019.

Around 455 a group of people known as Aenians invaded the Orthurian Peninsula, a sub-group of the Aenians were called the "Produss" as they moved to the 1st Kingdom of Produzland. Produzland had it's own empire up until then since 1537 when King Henry III formally united the Kingdoms of Azlorrace and Aenicioa. The lands that are now Produzland was a province of the Orthurian Empire until 221, then in 490 the independent nation of Produsland split in 2 nations, Aenícioa, and Ivreana. Ivreana created it's own empire, and West Aenícioa split from Aenícioa to become Azlorrace. After the division of Ivreana in 1044 Azlorrace conquered most of Western Orthuria and created the Kingdom of Produzland in 1279. Then in 1810 Produzland had a War of Succession resulting in Carlos II taking the throne. This empire was then split into Produzland, Arencia, the Parthonopian states, with Achkadia getting Cabeça in 1925 after they lost the Olympic War. This resulted in a dictator seizing control of Produzland in 1928 and annexing Arencia and Cabeça in 1937. The dictatorship was removed in 1980 with the monarchy being restored and Produzland growing now being a main producer of trains, seafood, and luxury items.

Produzland is ones of the leading countries in seafood production and luxury items with companies like Tradusland and Ludovico, Gonçalo Shipping, Andrade Luxuries, Rego-Dalgarno Hotel Company, and Vítor Loureiro. Manufacturing is the dominant force in the country with significant contributions from refining. The parts made in Produzland are both exported and made into finished products, though the economic goal of the nation is to export the majority of parts out of the country, while keeping/importing some parts for local manufacturing before exportation. Imports include raw materials as well as finished goods and services from other countries. The resources on hand and the priorities of Produzland influence what type of refinement and manufacturing will take place. Produzland's manufacturing specialties include Train Engines, Train cars, and electrical equipment.

Etymology

The Aenians referred to western Orthuria as "Produsland", or Proádusia in Produz, named after Proáduça, which is the Aenian word for carrots, a plant which was commonly grown in Western Orthuria. The Aenian people inhabiting the area were than referred to as "Proádus", or Produs, which the word Produs would eventually evolve into 'Produz' over time. The state that is now Produzland was originally called The Kingdom of Azlorrace until 1538. The Produs people, or more specifically King Henry III of Azlorrace, renamed their kingdom after the 1st Kingdom of Produsland long ago in 1538.


The standard way to refer to a citizen of Produzland is as a "Produzman."

History

Early History (-490)

The lands of modern Produzland were first inhabited by northern groups mainly, the outlandish Kabescans and the Aenians who had their Kingdom of Ugaulas. Through time, other states existed in west Orthuria like the island Kingdom of Ryturygonia off the coast of modern Sundrelandia, Calmatia, and Sundrelandia. Though all except the Kingdom of Kabesca were conquered by the Orthurian Empire. The dominant Aenians in the region referred to western Orthuria as Proáducia, after the common carrot being grown in the region. Orthuria ruled what they called Proadusia, based off what the Aenians called it, with a firm grasp leading to most older cities in Produzland having been established by Orthuria, like Addreium, or Aatream in the modern day. The Aenians throughout the region and Orthurians had breed together to create a hybrid of sorts that took its name from Proadusia, the Proádus.

Orthuria eventually lost Proadusia though to new kingdoms in the region, the two main ones being Ivreana and Aenicioa. Aenicioa was created from the ashes of the conquered Kingdom of Ugaulas and had political control over the coast from Kabesca to Calmatia, which the north of was controlled by the Ivreans who had control of everything north of the Avdethela River that wasn't Aenicioan, including Addreium. Originally Ivreana and Aenicioa emerged together under a single emperor but as practically two separate nations under the name of the 1st Kingdom of Produsland, yet they officially became two separate kingdoms after the abdication of Emperor Maximus.

Azlorrace

Due to a succession crisis in Aenicioa in 866, the country was divided into West Aenicioa and East Aenicioa, the former being ruled by the bastard son of King Alfonso II of Aenicioa, Ferdinand and the Gaulesian House of Fonseca, and the latter ruled by Alfonso's legitimate son Vicente and the already Aenicioan ruling House of Outeiro. West Aenicioa would become Aslorraça, or Azlorrace in Lorian which was the word for the southern most part of Aenicioa, with Baixa Aslorraça being an exclave of Aenicioa in Ivreana and Alto Aslorraça being in what is now the state of Lentamria. Azlorrace struggled early to keep itself afloat with their capital in Arencia in Baixa Asloveiros being cut off from the vast majority of Azlorrace' territory. Yet Azlorrace survived.

During the Invisible War of 1044 a city state.

Produs Wars of Unification (1267-1279)

In 1267, tensions were high between the neighboring kingdoms of Azlorrace and Cadascun that recently took over the Kingdom of the Rodaves, which would eventually finally be set off when Cadasan king Alfonso VI died in battle against the Selçénese in the Battle of Mergulhe-O-Grande. Cadascun was terribly unprepared to replace the king with 3 month old Prince Enrique of Calmatia, which gave Azlorrace the perfect chance to take over Anavede and all the south bay area, currently under Cadasan rule, and perhaps even all of the Kingdom of Cadascun. So in the summer of 1267, the Azlorracian forces crossed the Avdethela River into Cadascun. Already dealing with internal issues, Cadascun was easily defeated and swept aside at Anavede, Gretia Novo, and Azevedo, until King Vicente II himself and his army arrived at the walls of Cadascun capital, Portuaria. Realizing the city and it's people could be eliminated, the Cadasans surrendered. Azlorrace gladly welcomed the Cadasans into the kingdom and poured heavy amounts of money into rebuildings northern Cadascun.

This worried the Aenians in the north about possibly Azlorrace taking Aenicioa into what appeared to be Azlorrace trying to resurrect the centuries old unified Produs kingdom. So in 1269, Aenicioa strengthened it's forces in the border region in Gaulesia. Now Azlorrace didn't intend to conquer Aenicioa even if it had been on the countries wish list, the sudden strengthening of the border worried the Azlorracians who if Aenicioa could pressure and defeat them enough, all their hard work and bloodshed could be undone. So in January of 1270, Azlorrace officially went to war with it's northern neighbor. while Azlorracians pressured to the north in aim of Rodaesa, the largest and most important city, the southern forces found a way through the Cinzento Forest in the winter of 1274, an unguarded area of land that broke right into the plains of southern Aenicioa and in sight of the capital Relâpago. So the forces of Azlorrace suddenly flooded into the forest to push through directly towards Relâpago. In one of the bloodiest battles in Produz history as they came out of the forest. The Azlorracians approached the unguarded Relâpago. To which in 1275, Aenicioa accepted to unify, although it was agreed with Azlorrace they would remain two separate kingdoms ruled by the same person, mostly under Azlorracian control. Azlorrace and Aenicioa would be referred to as Produsland since they were practically united, but formally they were the Kingdoms of Azlorrace and Aenicioa.

Produz Empire (1537-1925)

King Enrique III took the Duchy of Selçéar in 1538 which he quite easily did after shelling Calorbairro, the Selçénese capital from the Produs side of the Avdethela River, ending the 300 rule of the Selçénese House of Nascimento. After taking Selçéar, he decided it was time to officially unite the Kingdom of Azlorrace and Aenicioa as one nation, the now official Kingdom of Produzland.

Over the course of the 16th and 17th centuries, the Produs Empire expanded it's influence heavily in Nori and it's southeastern islands. The first example in 1513 Aloisian explorer Aleixandre do Orestes became the first Liran to land on mainland Nori, despite failing to colonize mainland Nori, this opened up the gateway for Produsland to become the dominant Liran power in east Nori. 20 years later in 1533 Aleixandre do Orestes and company landed on the Strait of Marque island of Comona, establishing São Diego. Years later another company landed on the mainland and established the colonies of Novo Aenicioa and Senãles Alto e Baixo in modern Carelia.

However tragedy struck the King Enrique III and he was murdered in a jousting accident, this lead way however to his brother Joseph the Colonizer to revamp the Produs Empire in east Nori with the Produs Gulf Company to become one of the richest nations in Lira, and the House of Lugo one of the richest in the world.

Portrait of Aleixandre do Orestes.

Joseph's first major feat in his reign being in 1543 when Jorge Adão da Coutinho landed in southern Kiteahu and established Fort Santa Ângela on an island he called Cavaco. Da Coutinho also landed in the eastern islands of modern Jashnagar a few years later, which he and his fleet gave it the name 'Jaixnágar'.

After Joseph I died shortly into his reign in 1550, he was replaced with his son Philip, and through his mother Philip also inherited the Kingdom of Meronnia in 1551 leaving him as King Philip I & IV of Produsland and Meronnia and he one of the most powerful men in history as Produsland continued their colonial reign in east Nori.

In 1559, Miguel João de Leitão and his ship the São Sebastião discovered a lot of the islands in the western half of the Jashnagari Archipelago. The next year in 1560, Luís Vaz Corte-Real saw modern Choclyic for the first time with Liran eyes which gave rise to an attempted colonization of the archipelago over the next decade which saw a hard fought conflict by the natives drove Produsland away from taking the islands, though they still kept minor influence in the region.

In 1564, Sundrelândian missionary parties from Produsland arrived in modern Redacres which because of their brutality towards the Produs in their fight to take the island to colonialism from Aatream they named the island Costas do Vermelho, and integrated Manado into the colony of Costas do Vermelho when the Produs discovered the island not to long after discovering the main island of the chain. They established the capital of the colony as Nova Véal on a hill.

In 1576, Captain Domingos Bráulio of Produsland lands on the Ashaheiru Islands south of Zanaro, claiming the islands as Produs territory. Bráulio didn't realize they were part of Zanaro so King Philip of Produsland decided to take them by force if Zanaro wouldn't like them have the islands. They eventually overran the natives and Zanarites from the islands later that year. The islands were used as a Produs naval base under Produs colonial rule.

In 1582 when King Philip died, he split his empire in two with his son Vincent III inheriting Produsland and his daughter Ermelina I inheriting Meronnia and beginning the Meronnian branch of the House of Lugo. The two nations stayed very close allies throughout history though.

It was around the mid 1600s that the Lorian word for the people of Produsland shifted from Produs, to the modern word Produz, there was no real explanation for this shift, it was natural though as Produs had always been pronounced as "Produz" with a 'z'.

The decline of the Produz colonial empire began in the mid 1750s when in the Strait Wars with Velkanika, the colonies of New Aenicioa and Senales were awarded to Meronnia that had the Lugos out of power not to long beforehand. Another reason was for the powerful Produs Gulf Company began hoarding collected money away from the government and into the company itself and it's owners. An effect of that being in 1798, King Philip II of Produzland sold the island of Comona to Carelia for a large sum of money. Following the action, Philip II's final act as king of Produzland would be the Produs Gulf Company dissolved.

Shortly after chaos would ensue as King Philip II's grandson King Anthony of Produzland died without a child. So the government tracked down the lineage to find an heir, and they offered the crown to a second cousin once removed of King Anthony, Carlos de Boaventura.

(Insert the Produz War of Succession, which ended in the Treaty of San Aurelio which gave millions of Rozars, Cabeca, and Carlos II to Produzland)

Though on November 24th, 1844, Carlos died of a stroke, passing the throne to his son, Carlos III. Carlos III didn't maintain the empire as well as his father, and he attempted to invade the southern island of Zanaro beginning the Azlo-Zanarite War in 1846. He tried to build up his Gulf fleet but didn't do so well. As a response, Zanaro rapidly built up their navy to defend their island. Eventually an armistice was signed in 1848 as the war had ended up in a stalemate. The Produz admirals prevented Produzland from losing the war entirely. Carlos III was a disliked king and was eventually deposed in favour of his brother in 1850, just 6 years into his reign leaving the throne to his brother Vincent who became Vincent VII, however he would be assassinated before he could be coronated and was replaced with his nephew of the House of Boaventura-Bresbon, Joseph Vincent, who became Vincent VIII.

In 1893, after Vincent died and Joseph II took the throne in 1891, the Azlo-Carelian War began over the control of several islands in the area that previously Produzland owned for years. The Azlo-Carelian War was short and ended with a Carelian victory and Carelia seizing all Produz islands in the strait because of the declining power of Produzland and a very poor empire that had been developing for years. This was a humiliating defeat because for the first time in history, a Liran power lost to a Meridiqan one.

In 1897, King Joseph II of Produzland died leaving Carlos IV to become king at 17. Carlos IV though became increasing paranoid as the last 30 years Produzland seemed it would have a revolution to get rid of the absolute power of the monarchy, and the prime minister Alexandre Coelho of Produzland was encouraging the parliament to take down some of the monarchy's power, but Joseph II died before then. Carlos IV did not want this happening to him and his successors as not only was Coelho planning to bring down the monarchy's power. So he firmly deposed Coelho as prime minister and transformed the elected Produz prime minister role into an appointed position by the king.

In 1898, the War of Parthonopian Succession occured invloving Produzland, and the empire obtained Cisparrania, and Subparrania was turned into a puppet state of the empire.

Olympic War (1913-1925)

(This section needs severe updating once the region sorts it out)

Then the Olympic War began in 1913 with Produzland's allies being the opposing force to Verbania and their allies. Budery, one of Produzland's closest friends, invaded Almerland with the help of Produzland. Then a third faction showed up in the war, containing one of Produzland's main rivals, Achkadia which had been competing for control of the colonies in North and West Meridiq as well as islands in the Aurum. Zanaro was also part of the "Golden Entente" against Produzland as Produzland had taken the Ashahieru Islands from them centuries earlier, but their only goal was to take the colonies in the Aurum from Produzland. The official war between Produzland and the Golden Entente would start in 1913 after Achkadia annexed Cabeça. The war between Produzland and the Golden Entente ended in a stalemate in 1923 with an armistice in the Treaty of Aatréam and the newly Achkadia province of Cabeça divided in the treaty and in ruins. Produzland lost most of their islands in the Aurum and influence in the region with over 3.5 million Produz casualties.

Though Produzland-Amidia hadn't surrended to the C.I.S. yet. This resulted in beachheads in southern Produz-occupied Parthonopia. The C.I.S. troops invaded Parthonopia and slowly approached the Produz-Amidian capital after liberating Parthonopia. Produzland-Amidia surrendered on April 25th, 1924, followed by Budery not long after. The conditions for Produzland in the Treaty of Aquleia were they had to split with Amidia, Arencia would become an independent country, Cabeça was fully ceeded to Achkadia, Produzland would not recognize the Treaty of Aatréam and except a full loss, only have heregonic rule over Cisparrania and Subparrania which was split between Produzland and Amidia, give independence to all the Parthonopian countries they annexed.

Post-Olympic War and Produz Revolution (1925-1928)

After the war, a Produz sharpshooter who served in defending Costas do Vermelho and Ashahieru Islands in the Olympian War by the name of Frederico Côtésatoire wanted to restore the Produz Empire and take revenge against the Golden Entente for not just killing over 10.5 million Produzmen, but for also not seceeding over the territory Produzland wanted in the Treaty of San Aurélio and annexing Cabeça. He was born on October 4th, 1896 in San Aurélio, Produzland, but his grandfather was a proud Achkadian and made his father live in Achkadia, his dad was a proud Produz and his mom was a Cabeçan. His grandfather on his dad's side was an Achkadian and wanted his son to be an Achkadian, but he took off his mother's side and became a proud Produz and was facsinated with Produzland and his Produz heritage, though his father forced him to live in Achkadia. He was later tried for treason in Achkadia for his bold standing against the country and bias towards Produzland. He moved to and lived in San Aurélio for some time until he met Frederico's mother and after Frederico's father was off of the governments watch, they had Frederico and moved to Cojazeira, Produzland where Frederico would develop his love for the country. After he served in the Olympic War he was brought home to Cojazeira, he changed his name to Déusro to strike fear into the people because after gaining an even stronger nationalist sense and racism towards Achkadian and Zanarites, he wanted to restore Produzland's greatness.

One of the sanctions on Produzland was the king of Produzland was to be only a constitutional monarchy after trials had King Carlos IV deposed, sent to exile in Aloísio, and putting his son Ferdinand VI in power. This made Déusro angry as even after the king failed to reign the country triumphant against one of Produzland's longest rivals, and they still let the monarchy stay in power.

Now that Produzland was a constitutional monarchy, a democratic parliament was installed and party's could run for seats. So Déusro started up a party named the Anti-Constitutional Monarchist Entente Party of Produzland, or ACE for short, to overthrow the Produz King Ferdinand VI. He and his rising supporters secretly killed monarchists and Produz Police Officers, this eventually had an impact on the Kingdom that drove the king to have to stay in the Anviaram Palace to avoid assassination by ACE, and the party eventually became the most powerful party in parliament. This led Déusro to run for Prime Minister and he won. Déusro eventually built up enough supporters to create an army, and on November 28th, 1928, the soldiers of Déusro's soon-to-be Produzland invaded the Enviaram Palace to bring the king out to execute him. The ACE army captured the palace and had to drag out the king to bring him to the center of Central Azlorrace Square. ACE tore down a statue of King Carlos IV, the current king's predecessor. to replace it with a wooden platform. Déusro's soldiers tied up the king and put a bag over his head to execute him the old fashioned way. Déusro's soldiers shot the king dead and put up a the new flag of Produzland. Déusro claimed he had nothing to do with it, and just said his soldiers got fed up with the king. Though with the king gone and the king's son not old enough to become king yet, Déusro established the Federal Republic of Produzland, and pronounced himself President as he was already Prime Minister, and shortly after Déusro proposed a law to parliament that would allow him to make all future laws and decisions entirely on his own, and it passed, Déusro was now the dictator of Produzland, and he was ready to restore the glory days of Produzland.

Déusro Era (1928-1980)

After Déusro came to power, tensions with Achkadia, were stronger than ever, and the more Produz tied region of Cabeça, which was fully ceeded to Achkadia in the Treaty of Aquleia. In 1814 in the Treaty of San Aurélio, Cabeça was ceeded to Produzland, then later Cabeça was once again part of Achkadia. Ever since Cabeça was fully ceeded to Achkadia, the Cabeçans have been fighting for independence or to be annexed by Produzland. In the 1930s, due the region being destroyed and costing Achkadia tons of money to rebuild, Achkadia granted Cabeça independence. Deusro saw a chance to not start another war if it annexed Achkadia which it would have if Cabeça was still part of Achkadia, and Deusro ordered for the annexation of Cabeça, which the Produzmen did happily with conquering San Aurélio in a week. The Achkadian government was angry but didn't want to start another war after what happened last time Cabeça merged with Produzland, so they let the Cabeçans merge with Produzland once again even if it was in violation of the Treaty of Aquleia. Déusro said that "The Produz Wars of Unification would have never truly ended until Cabeça was eternally intergrated in Produzland". After the success of the annexation, Deusro marched his troops to annex Arencia, which the Arencians didn't even put up a fight as they never wanted to split with Produzland in the first place. After 13 years since the Treaty of Aquleia, all the Produz's in Orthuria were united again.

In 194_, Achkadia was invaded by Produzland's ally in Lunderfrau, installing a puppet government. As a result, Lunderfrau let Produzland have the two provinces of Achkadia that bordered Cabeca, which Produzland had wanted since the Produz claimed control of Cabeca again in 1814. This would be the height of Produz power since the signing of the Treaty of Aquleia in 1925.

Restoration of the Monarchy (1980-)

In 1979, the Produz dictator Frederico Déusro was diagnosed with the final stage of cancer and that he would die in 3 weeks due to the diagnoses being taken so late in the development of the disease. He died on March 31st, 1979. The people of Produzland loved Déusro and still do to this day for all he wanted to do, and did for his country. Without Déusro, ACE fell apart quickly and led to new parties deciding things, and they restored the parliament, the new government of Produzland decided that without Déusro, they could restore the long missed Boaventuras and brought Daniól Boaventura I to power in 1980 at the age of 20, but as a constitutional monarch. It's been that way for almost 40 years now and today Produzland is still a leading country in Lira importing Bauxite and exporting aluminum and manufactured goods. With the restoration of the constitutional monarchy, Produzland returned the provinces they owned west of the Aniene back to Achkadia.

Government & Politics

Produzland is a parlimentary constitutional monarchy. The Constitution grants the division or separation of powers among four bodies, the King, the Government, the parliament, and the Courts. The constitution of 1773 also states that the capital of Produzland is always in the city of where the monarch lives. So despite the government being based entirely in Lavoeira, Aatream remains the capital.

The king of Produzland is King Joseph IV. The Produz parliament is elected through the states electing how the six parties represent their respective seats in the parliament there being 100 seats in the house and its divided by what percentage of that state's population takes up the whole Produzland. For example Oestebaia has a population of 7 million out of the 38 million giving it 14 seats of 100. (Any extras not making 1 whole is given to the smallest state in the country, which occasionally gives the least populated more seats than the 2nd least). The seats per state is appropriately adjusted every 4 years. The 6 parties are represented by the 6 main colours (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple), and the colour is represented by a party campaigning for a spot of the 6 colours every 5 years, though normally it's always the same parties winning, the last change being Orange who is now represented by the far right party FPGN after replacing the mildly conservative NDML in 2010. And so the states decide how they want their appropriate seats divided amongst the 6 parties. The Prime Minister however is just elected through polls in the 19 states out of the 6 party leaders every 5 years, the newest change being in August of 2018 where Riccardo Bonadeo replaced Agostinho Valdez.

Foreign Affairs

Military

The armed forces have three branches: Navy, Army and Air Force. They serve primarily as a self-defense force whose mission is to protect the territorial integrity of the country and provide humanitarian assistance and security at home and abroad. As of 2008, the three branches numbered 390,200 active personnel including 7,500 women. Produz military expenditure in 2009 was billion, representing 2.1 percent of GDP. Military conscription was abolished in 2004. The minimum age for voluntary recruitment is 18 years.

The Army (105,000 personnel) comprises three brigades and other small units. An infantry brigade (mainly equipped with Pandur II APC), a mechanized brigade (mainly equipped with Leopard 2 A6 tanks and M113 APC) and a Rapid Reaction Brigade (consisting of Paratroopers, commandos and Rangers). The Navy (50,700 personnel, of which 5,580 are marines), has five frigates, seven corvettes, two submarines, and 28 patrol and auxiliary vessels. The Air Force (155,500 personnel) has the Lockheed F-16 Fighting Falcon and the Dassault/Dornier Alpha Jet as the main combat aircraft.

In addition to the three branches of the armed forces, there is the National Republican Guard, a security force subject to military law and organization (gendarmerie) comprising 25,000 personnel. This force is under the authority of both the Defense and the Interior Ministry.

Geography

Produzland is located in south-west Lira, and is bordered by the Aurum Ocean in the west and the Rosel Sea in the south.

The Marine West Coast or Oceanic Climate of Produzland has a very mild climate lacking in extreme temperatures. It typically lacks a dry season, as precipitation is consistent throughout the year. Summers are cool due to cool ocean currents, winters are mild usually very cloudy. With Summers below 22 °C (72 °F) and winters above −3 °C (27 °F).

The Mediterranean climate in the south of Produzland is characterized by dry summers and mild, moist winters. The average temperature is above 10 °C (50 °F) in their warmest months, and an average in the coldest between 18 to −3 °C (64 to 27 °F). The climate receives almost all of its precipitation during the winter, autumn and spring seasons, and may go anywhere from 4 to 6 months during the summer without having any significant precipitation.

Population

Economy

Produzland has a Refining/Manufacturing Economy with both lower and higher secondary sectors. Manufacturing is the dominant force in the country with significant contributions from refining. The parts made in Produzland are both exported and made into finished products, though the economic goal of the nation is to export the majority of parts out of the country, while keeping/importing some parts for local manufacturing before exportation. Imports include raw materials as well as finished goods and services from other countries. The resources on hand and the priorities of Produzland influence what type of refinement and manufacturing will take place. Produzland's manufacturing specialties include train Engines, train cars, and electrical equipment.

Transport

Continental Produzland's territory is serviced by six international airports located near the cities of Portuaria, Aatream, Cojazeira and Oraveira. Aatream's geographical position makes it a stopover for many foreign airlines at several airports within the country. The government decided to build a new airport outside Aatream, to replace Aatream Portela Airport, though this plan has been suspended due to austerity measures. Currently, the most important airports are in Aatream, Portuaria, Aloisio (Aloisio Ilhas), and Oraveira, managed by the national airport authority group ANA – Aeroportos de Proaduseia.

The major seaports are located in Aatream, Portuaria, Cojazeira, Aloisio, Resana, San Aurelio, and Coração.

The three largest metropolitan areas have subway systems: Aatream Metro and South Lavoeira Metro in the Aatream Bay Metropolitan Area, Portuaria Metro in the Portuaria Metropolitan Area, and Oraveira Metro in the Oraveira-Vidaveira Metropolitan Area, each with more than 35 km (22 mi) of lines. In Produzland, Aatream tram services have been supplied by the Southwest Transport, for over a century. In Portuaria, a tram network, of which only a tourist line on the shores of the inner city remains, began construction on 12 September 1895 (a first for the Orthurian Peninsula). All major cities and towns have their own local urban transport network, as well as taxi services.
