Cestiène is the capital and largest city of Auzance, with 1,768,093 inhabitants in 2020. It sits on the south coast of Auzance, bordering the Eleutherian Lakes, on which it is the third largest city (after Rayenne and Dyńsk). Cestiène has functioned as Auzance's urban hub for centuries, and as its formal capital since the nation's independence after the Autuzian Revolution. Cestiène is also the political centre of Auzance, home to the Tchambe, Hôt-Cour and Independence House.

Cestiène was initially a small fishing village, only being named and documented in the 14th century. The village benefited from its location at the nexus of the Three Roads of Auzance, which brought in trade and made it a key stopover and trading point. By the time of Auzance's independence, Cestiène had become the largest city in the nation by a considerable margin. In the modern day, Cestiène is a hub of research, education and the largest economic centre of Auzance.
