The City of Asketon (pronounced /ˈæskɛtʌn/; Trellinese: Forsi Asketoi, from Azkai Tahon, meaning Firebrand Bend) is the third most populous city in Trellin and the only city in the empire to be administered as its own province. As a province, it is the second smallest in the empire, with a land area of only 848 square kilometres, and the most densely populated, with 6,128,563 people and a density of 6294.23 per sq. km. Its metropolitan area sprawls across the provincial borders to include a further three million people.
The province of Asketon borders Fymona and the Flotir river to the north and Ja'ekha to the south.
In 1763, the city was ravaged by the Great Fire of Asketon.
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.
