Espil is one of the largest and most populous cities in the southwestern region, and is the primary economic and cultural centre of the Estify Region. The city contains a very diverse atmosphere, containing thousands of shops and the highest living standards possible in the area. A large variety of services are centred in the city, and are the only such services available in the entire region (ex. healthcare, libraries). It is characterized for it's unique style with glass, quartz, and stone bricks, and was founded on August 29th, 2015. Espil is situated east of the West Ocean, and sits on top of a plains biome, a savannah and a desert.

Geography

Espil covers a large portion of the southwest, covering a majority of the space between  C80 ,  C81  and  C82 . The West Ocean is located to the west of Espil, with plans for a future waterfront. Constructing on the east side is a major challenge, because of the rough terrain of the desert. On the west side, denser districts have formed because of the relative ease of building on the flat plains area. In general however, the city lies on flat ground, and is much more fortunate than other settlements on rougher ground.

Climate

Espil has a subtropical climate with an average temperature of 23°C. The summers are relatively hot, with temperatures reaching up to 33°C in the desert (on the east end). Winters are mild, with average temperatures at 15°C. Average rainfall varies between different districts, with the east having constant droughts, and the west having an abundance of precipitation. This is especially the case during the winter, when the area becomes much drier. It is then needed for water to be pumped from the west-side to the desert districts as well as Aprix. There has never been any recorded snowfall in the region.

Architecture

Espil has a reputation for being a "tall" city, with many skyscrapers and high-rises dominating the skyline on the west side. Districts usually have slight differences in architectural design. For example, Eisli, which the southern district, contains many utilitarian older skyscrapers that make use of stone bricks more often. In the north, the district Cephyl is completely dominated by futuristic quartz designs. Espil is mainly a modern-futurist style, with inspiration from many new high-rises being developed in Toronto, Canada as a result of the condo boom. Quartz is very prominent in the city, with over 400 tons of it shipped into the city every month. Stone brick and glass is also a defining feature of Espil, with many skyscrapers utilizing large amounts of it.
