Alţira (abbreviated ) is a region of Gylias. Located in the north-east, it borders Cacerta (Molise) to the north, Arxaþ to the west, and Nezyál to the south, across a gulf.

The region was part of Alscia, which is reflected in its flag.


Northern Alţira is mountainous and dominated by the Naryn mountains, while the south is flat and dominated by the Niavelin plain.

The Tarna river determines much of the southern boundary with Arxaþ.


The 2020 census recorded a population of 920.786. Large cities in the region include Senik, Garés, Valona, and Sarra.

Notable smaller settlements include Castiglioni, founded by the eccentric countess Virginia Castiglioni, and Ralvakis.

With regard to Gylic peoples, the region is unique in being populated mainly by Zinerans.

The region is notable for its strong Italian influence, and is one of the parts of Gylias were Italian remains heavily used as a common language.


Alţira is historically one of Gylias' highly industrialised regions. Even after relative deindustrialisation after the Liberation War, it remains something of a centre of Gylian manufacturing and industry. Its agriculture is strongly mechanised and specialised in cash crops.

Tourism is primarily oriented around the region's Alscian heritage, particularly its impressive Art Deco urban architecture.

Its regional currency is named the lira, with designs and symbols based on the Alscian lira.


The region's regional council is named the Alţira Regional Council, and its regional party is named the Democratic Forum of Alţira (French reformed: Forum démocratique d'Alţira).

Alţira has historically been a liberal stronghold, and it remains one of the Liberal Union's dominant regions, earning it the nickname "the yellow redoubt".

Molisentismo, a movement advocating that Molise — "Cacerta's most Gylian region" — join Gylias, has a marginal presence in regional politics.
