Semprihevosk is the largest city of Luziyca, located in the state of Chadania on the Sprska River Delta, with nearly ten million inhabitants within the city borders. It forms the core of the Chadan Bay megalopolis in central Chadania, which comprises twenty million inhabitants, making it the largest metropolitan area within Luziyca.

Due to its large size, Semprihevosk is a major financial center, with many Luziycan corporations and banks headquartered within the city. Until the 1960s, it was also a major manufacturing city and a port, only rivaled by Limani and Pristanische.

Etymology

The term Semprihevosk comes from two languages: a Latin term meaning "always" (Semper), and the Luziycan word for wax (vosk). Until the 17th century, Semprihevosk was noted for their waxworks.

The earliest recorded use of Semprihevosk dates back to AD 921 when a merchant commented on the waxworks from there, stating that the wax from the town "are so perfect that they will semper in cera (always be [the] wax) that we will compare other waxes to."

It is unclear how the "cera" became "vosk", but it took place around the 1200s.
