Hi! This is Klaupio - a city, that I started to create in CXL 2011 and never finished there. After upgrading to XXL, reproducing and finishing Klaupio was my first project. Here it is:

Klaupio is a city in my imaginary land Selioarkesson, the country of Regrana. It's the administrative centre and the largest city in Skertūre - one of Regrana's six districts. With 197000 inhabitants it's the 7th largest city of Regrana. The name Klaupio is inspired by a nice city Kuopio in Finland.

I also want to provide you a little information about my country Regrana:
I have had an imaginary area of countries for a long time. The area is called Selioarkesson (Selian area = Selian zone) and it initially had 3 countries (=states): Selia, Yqrkotessandia, Suprossandia. In 2013 I added Regrana as a 4th one and it is now the largest and the most populous country in Selioarkesson.
Largest city: Jerbīna
Official language: The western dialect of Sēlinki (A language that I have constructed since 2003. You could call it Selian language in English)
