Kittalor is the capital city of Kiyortza, and is a part of the Kittalor-Kitaki metro area. The city is located to the northwest of Lake Kita'i on the Kitak River, a few kilometers east of the Sivordjik Gulf; despite its apparent proximity to the ocean, Kittalor by itself is not considered a coastal city, and does not host a large port of its own. It is mostly urban, with a few historical site scattered throughout the highly modernized city.

Kittalor pre-dates the city-state period in the Kittauhri Peninsula, and is named after the mountain lynxes that often visited the area prior to mass human settlement, hence Kit-Talor, or "Lynx-City". Later on, it became the capital of the Kittauh, a regional power, and became a major regional city under the Kittauh-Kanistri, before finally becoming the national capital of the United States of Kiyortza thirteen years after the formation of the nation, before which Fukivapi was the capital.

Infrastructure

Kittalor, as with many large Kiyortzani cities, has an extensive public transport system, the most prominent of which would be its metro system, which are linked with multiple nearby cities, including Lanakyaf, Kitaki, and Iskari, essentially linking the Kittalor-Kitaki metropolitan area in one network. The city's main airport and high-speed rail station are situated in a transport hub north of Kittalor-Kitaki, off of KN-1 and KT-52, connected to the city by light rail.
