Kantō (commonly written as Kanto for simplicity) is a city located in the southern and far eastern area of the world. The general style of the city is based largely on urban Japan and Taiwan.

Kantō is governed largely by the mayor, with the deputy mayor assisting as well as the five main commissioners of the military, foreign affairs, internal affairs, citizen welfare, and finance. Legislative duties are under the charge of the Speaker of Senate, and judicial issues are resolved under the Chief Justice.
The government is headquartered in the Government Ward within a number of buildings, largely consisting of offices for the five commissioners' departments. The heads of each branch as well as the Executive Function have offices located in the City Hall, while the 51-seat State Senate has offices and meeting areas in the City Assembly Hall and Offices, and the 3-justice State Court resides in the City Courthouse.
Kantō is divided into several wards for local governance, most of which serve a specialized and unique purpose. The city center will consist of the Business, Commercial, Education, Entertainment, and Government Wards, which are roughly divided by rivers and will meet in the center of the city. Surrounding areas will consist of Beach, Industrial, and Military Wards with remaining space used by multiple residential wards, as well as some secondary commercial wards.

Traveling around the city will be greatly focused on public transportation, from commuter rails to buses.
Notably, all roadway vehicles and trains drive on the left side, unlike most other cities.
Commuter rail will compose of the majority of the rail network. The overall network will resemble four through lines angled roughly the same from each other and meeting at a central station, with two loop lines, one in the downtown area and one near the city perimeter. Towards the center of the city, the cardinal directional lines will serve as express trains while the other lines on the same tracks will serve as local trains. All rolling stock consists of E233-series 3-car trainsets.
Metros and light rails may be considered for use, with metros serving a limited number of wards and covering unserved areas by the commuter rail, and light rail serving as more local service in single wards.
The Yamanote Line is planned to run in a loop along the outer perimeters of the city and connect to all of the other commuter rail lines (except the Chūō Line).
The Chūō Line is planned to run in a loop along the downtown area of the city and serve as a connector among all other transit services (except the Yamanote Line).
The Namboku Line is planned to run north-south through the city.
The Tōzai Line is planned to run east-west through the city, following a rough path north from the beach areas, then curving and heading almost directly east.

The Nansei Line is planned to run from the southwest of the city to its center. Its overall path outside the central area has yet to be determined.

All roads follow an unique naming convention where major roads are named after notable contributors to Studio Ghibli while smaller roads are named after the characters from its many films.
Driving is slightly different in Kantō due to major avenues being subdivided into four median-separated sections (two express for better travel and two local for accessing buildings and curbside parking). At the intersection, inner lanes may only continue straight, turn right, or cross into the outer lanes, while the outer lanes may do the same but may only turn left instead of right. Lane interchanges located along the road and intersection lane changes facilitate vehicles needing to get to the proper roadway section for the appropriate turn lane.
Bus stops on major avenues are located on the outer medians immediately before intersections, and thus next to crosswalks for the passengers.
Buses mainly serve as shuttles to and from rail stations, and as a more mobile version of the light rail.
