Belden is the Capital of Commerce of Marazan on the border of Bedias, Raxus and Erayus. The city was designed by a female engineer by the name of F. Crumb. The plans didn't capture the scale of the city and now has over 12,000,000 inhabitants, 90% of which are immigrants.

Because of its position alongside an ocean and direct access to three continents, Belden has many trade routes.

History[edit | edit source]

Bedlen plans were made in the year 3854 by Dr. F. Crumb. When she died of a heart attack, the plans were found a year later in 3878. Twenty two years later the city went into construction. For some, it was just a city while for immigrants it was a beacon of hope, a city that has pavements of gold and buildings of precious materials. Of course, only children actually believed in it being so far fetched, but everyone knew it was known to be a good place to live, though the stories were stretched. By the year of 4039 it was the Capital of Commerce and 70% of its population were immigrants.

The city is constantly growing and for every 100,000 people arriving, an average of 10 km² is added onto the city.

In Belden, each species can elect their representative. The one with the most votes wins. This representative can have a place in the government and each get an equal say. The representative has a chance to become Emperor*, which holds them more sway. A new one is elected every five years. The current Emperor is Cinahtes.
