Kyuden Gotai is the capital city of Azeshouri, the seat of the Emperor and the Imperial Court, and the heart of the Empire. It sits at nearly the very center of the Empire alongside Chrysanthemum Lake, from which the Imperial family takes the symbol of their house.
The city is divided into two sections – the inner “circle”, surrounded by the Enchanted Wall that protects the Imperial District, and a large curtain wall that defends the rest of the city. There are three gates that pass under the thick, heavy walls of the outer wall, with the Eastern Gate being the largest, as dictated by Feng Shui, and with smaller northern and southern gates.
The city is divided into a number of districts, each with its own governor (typically a member of the Otomo family) charged with overseeing the needs of their district.
