Providence, officially the City of Providence, is a port city on the northwest coast of Zamastan. With a population of 6,293,000, it is the fifth most populous city in Zamastan. Before colonialism by the Skithans in the 1700s, the area was populated by the Catica First Nations for thousands of years. Founded in 1764, Providence's Inner Harbor was once the second leading port of entry for immigrants to the Zamastan, when most were coming from across Euronia and Adula. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Providence was an epicenter for shipbuilding and a gateway to the Horseshoe Bay and the Olympic Ocean. Logging and mining were also major industries. Historically, it was a major manufacturing center, but after a global a decline in heavy industry Providence shifted to a service-oriented economy. Today, it is home to many corporations and businesses from across Zamastan and internationally, including subsidiaries of Zian Airways and the Tarin Shipping Line.

With hundreds of identified districts, Providence has been dubbed a "city of neighborhoods". Providence is home to some of the earliest Zamastanian Registered Historic Districts in the nation, including Providential Waterfront, Commander's Hill, and Dairysdon District. These were added to the ZHD Register between 1969–1971, soon after historic preservation legislation was passed. Nearly one third of the city's buildings (over 65,000) are designated as historic in the Register, which is more than any other Zamastanian city.
