Geography

The province of Asketon covers a total of 973.68 square kilometres, of which roughly 126 are water. The city is built inside the largest meander of the Flotir, the second longest river in Trellin; extensive dyke systems were developed from the fourteenth century onward to prevent flooding of the city.
