Desislav is the largest city in Katranjiev, with around nine million people or about a third of the population of Katranjiev residing in the greater Desislav metropolitan area, covering much of the southeastern coast of the country. Within its city limits, it only has over a million residents, but its conurbation has around nine million in total.

It is the largest port city in the country, and most international trade that doesn't go through its neighbors generally goes through Desislav. The city has a vast nightlife, and its metropolitan area is a very cosmopolitan area of the country, rivalled only by Krasimir in the north.

Etymology

Desislav came as a translation from a Namorese phrase meaning "ten glories" (Namorese: Силонг, Silong), which in term derives from Minjianese "Shíróng" (十榮).

It is believed that the earliest settlers named the city "Shíróng" in deference to the Emperor, and that after Vaclav I managed to end Namorese and Minjianese rule over Katranjiev, the name was changed to a translation into Katranjian (desi slav), due to its common use among Katranjians living in the area.

Economy

As the largest metropolitan area in the country, tourism, shipping, banking and the service sectors are the dominant industries within the greater metropolitan area. Due to it housing a third of the country's population, Desislav has a large economy, with many Katranjian enterprises generally headquartered either in Desislav or in the capital city of the country, Krasimir.
