Finkyáse (finˈkjase, old script: 噴脚背) is the second largest city in Kojo, situated in the south west of the country at the Sound of Pa. The city is sometimes seen as an anti-pole to the country's primate city and capital, Pyingshum.


The origins of the city are lost in history. The oldest remains of a permanent settlement date back to the first century, but since the river's discharge into the ocean here is the largest source of surface drinking water for most of the region (and only reliable year-round) it is very likely that the area had been settled even before that. Combined with the access to the ocean, the city always has been the trading centre for its vast but sparsely populated hinterland.

Since 457 and until the Kojolese unification in 1668, the city continuously had been seat of an hereditary ruler. However, despite technically becoming part of the Kojolese Kingdom under the Pyilser Krun'a Dynasty which was seated in Pyingshum, the city and much of today's Fóskiman-iki was de-facto governed by the De Croix (De Kwá) family, which had assisted the Pyilser Krun'a dynasty in defeating the previous rulers and were in return handed control of the area. With the democratic revolution in 1834 the family was forced to step down and had their lives spared. The De Kwá family is one of few former noble families in modern Kojo that still trace their lineage and adhere to certain traditions.

In the middle of the 19th century the city experienced rapid growth and became a centre of the industrial revolution in western Kojo, making use of its strategic location at the sea, the resource extraction that took place in the hinterland, and its position as a gateway to Ataraxia. The first railway in Kojo operated here, between the edge of the old city centre and the coastal town Sólaeiman less than 4 km to the south-west. The city grew rapidly around the historic core and new industrial facilities, but the sprawl was largely unregulated. Poor living conditions combined and congestion made the city a very unpleasant place to live in for most. Additionally, the need for a central railway station became more and more apparent, as up to this point there two were separate stations for east- and westbound railways.

The city drafted a master plan for expansion, based on a large grid pattern and including a generously built new railway terminus. Implementation commenced in the year 1896. This geometric city expansion, combined with standardised building footprints in the new neighbourhoods, has had a lasting impact on the city scape until today.

From the 1960's on the city built new port facilities in the west, allowing the old marina in the city centre to be repurposed for recreational uses, ferries and cruise ships later on. During the late 20th century the city became one of the fastest growing cities in the country. This is mostly attributed to emerging digital and biotech industries, the city's cultural life and high quality of living as well as the tourism industry. With traditional industrial centers of Kojo simultaneously experiencing a steep decline in population, Finkyáse extended its lead in being the second biggest city in the nation, namely overtaking Kippa. The city's growth caused the traffic situation to worsen, which in turn spurred ambitious investments in mass transit and railway infrastructure. Most notably the central railway terminus from the turn of the century was drastically altered. The old station building was stripped of tracks and platforms and converted into an airy reception building, offering many amenities and improving passenger flow. Further to the north, two new platform halls were build, one for long-distance and one for regional trains. A new network of Ésubān trains was established, whose platforms were built underneath the old station building. Extension of the Ésubān lines into the city centre and along the western coastal railway line are still ongoing.


The river Shimjur, the only non-intermittent body of water in the region, ends in two large freshwater lagoons before discharging into the Sound of Pa. The terrain is flat, with numerous other, smaller brackwater lagoons lining the coast. As a result the amount of available shoreline is much larger than the border between the Sound of Pa and the main land taken by itself. The lagoons form a unique habitat for many plants and animals, while also serving as a recreational space and source of drinking water for households and industry in Finkyáse and the surrounding cities. The conflicts emerging from these dual uses like threatening salinisation of the lagoons, wildlife preservation efforts, tourism or prices of drinking water are reoccurring topics in local politics.

A peculiarity of the administrative geography are the independent cities of Dóman and Maéimi. While other towns west of the Shimjur were incorporated into the greater city of Finkyáse as the city grew, these places resisted. Together they are the last remaining parts of the Fóskiman-hibu township. The strong urge to stay independent from the big city is attributed to several causes. Especially the city of Dóman has a historically different local identity from Finkyáse's old town separated the bay. But even when the city grew and more and more towns and villages on the eastern side of the Shimjur merged with the city, Dóman, now characterised by being a very affluent area with wealthy people's holiday homes, denied being incorporated to be able to retain its character. The last town that joined Finkyáse, the beach side resort town Hikárem, is often cited as a negative example by residents and politicians from Dóman and especially Maéimi. After the town joined the large city in the 1970's, the formerly quiet beachside town experienced rapid growth in construction and tourism. Today, the area is one of the most notorious beach and nightlife areas in Kojo, attracting countless tourists, but at the same time local residents felt cast out. Out of fear to avoid the same fate, especially Maéimi is set to stay independent, which for example allows the city to restrict its beaches to local residents on certain days. The ongoing resistance of Dóman is also attributed to similar mindsets, especially around issues of social housing quotas (which the city wants to avoid) and city planning. The city of Finkyáse and the region of Fóskiman-iki are financing the construction of the Ésubān tunnel underneath the Shimjur that will connect the city centre of Finkyáse and Dóman, without contributions from the eastern town. It is hoped that this investment will increase interconnectedness of the two cities and the long-term chances of a merge.

Ántibes-Finkyáse-Zúkshi Hyengzidō, short AFZH, is a private suburban railway that was formed in 2001 when the formerly separate Ántibes-Finkyáse Hyengzidō and Butenki Hyengshō Sanan merged. The railway owns the infrastructure of and runs trains on two railway lines. The western branch comes from Ántibes towards Finkyáse and terminates at Ántibes re Chezi. The eastern line comes from Zúkshi (Fóskiman h.) and terminates at Zúkshi re Chezi next to the old city centre.

Stopping patterns for the different train types on the Ántibes branch and the Zúkshi branch can be found underneath. As KHS's KC and KCP trains as well as the Ésubān run parallel to both branches on some portions, they are shown as well, despite running on different tracks and being operated by a different company.

There is currently construction ongoing to complete a rail tunnel between Ántibes re Chezi and Finkyase Zóngchezi to integrate the Ántibes branch into the city's Ésubān system. Two additional tracks between Ántibes re Chezi and the western suburbs of the city are also being built. After completion, the Ésubān-lines coming from the north-east that currently terminate at the city's main station will continue on to these new tracks. The former local trains on the Ántibes branch will cease service, allowing for a higher frequency of express trains with fewer stops. Those will still terminate at the old Ántibes re Chezi.

Ésubān and Regional rail (Kojo Hyengshō Sanan)

FIN regrail.png

A total of 9 Ésubān-lines, running at intervals of 15 or 30 min each, serve commuters from the suburbs into the city center. They are compatible with main line railway standards, share some track with regional and freight trains and are operated by Kojo Hyengshō Sanan. While the unevenly numbered lines that come from the north-west already run beyond Finkyáse main station into the old town, construction of a tunnel to Ántibes re Chezi to allow integration of the even north-eastern lines into a quadrupled AFZH western line is still ongoing.

Kojo Hyengshō Sanan also operates regional trains to connect more distant suburbs, towns and cities.

There are four tram lines in Finkyáse. Three form a network on the eastern side of the city. T1 from Orang'yētuel Dōzi and T2 from Rόng'yeda Dōzi run towards Dóman and share a section of track. T3, the newest line, runs from Chin Aengda Dōzi via the repurposed runway of the old airport towards Dóman as well. T2 terminates at the Dóman ferry, while T1 and T3 continue on for another 2 km to Hikárem where they offer a connection to the Chitachē line 4.

On the western side of the city, a metro tram called CT runs from Palnain to Otten, with some trains continuing on via freight tracks to Finkyuel, Oekkuel and Rosshi Hyengkō hakki. The CT runs on tracks mostly separate from street traffic. Especially on its north-western branches it is similar to a regional rail service.


Finkyáse International Airport to the north of the city centre is on of Kojo's 5 airports designated for international airfare, and one of only three airports with at least two parallel runways. It's the country's second busiest airport, handling about 14 million passengers every year and 126,000 flight movements.
