Major Cities and notable locations

Cities

Katar ar Phoenicon

Population: 73 million
Trade name: Tower of the Phoenix

Katar ar Phoenicon was founded in -105 GA to serve as capital of the young Sargon Nation and by now has grown to be the largest city on the planet. The city's layout is shaped by several large circular highways and some absolute straight ones that intersect the circulars. These highways quite visibly devide the city into it's different districts.
The skyline is dominated by many skyscrapers, most of them reaching up to a kilometer into the sky, that house the bulk of the city's population. Unlike in most Sargonian cities there are, however, many smaller buildings between the skyscrapers on the surface, covering most of the city area.
The city's center is the literal Katar ar Phoenicon, the biggest skyscraper of the planet with a height of two and a half kilometers, that stands out of the skyline like a giant needle. It houses many of the governmental offices, including the Supreme Administrator's, as well as the High Council of Sargon, the biggest hospital of the planet and many other facilities.
At the south-west border of Katar ar Phoenicon lies the only spaceport of the planet forming a big circle with a diameter of 15 kilometers.
