    Port Sakaria is the the capital of the Roka Islands of the country Sagarika. Port Sakaria is not only the administrative head of the Roka Islands but it is also the executive and judicial of the Islands. Roka Police is in charge of the Port City as well as other islands and Port Sakaria is the largest of all. Built as a naval base during Joralish Colonial era, it has now turned into a major island city with all modern facilities. Main industries are the Export-Imports with various ports, Tourism and the Fisheries.
    Roka Islands is an archipelago of 21 Islands located at the junction of Rastan Ocean and the Gulf of Gandha. It is located at the north eastern tip of Dakshin Pradesh and in the south eastern part of the nation Sagarika. The Roka Islands is one of the 14 states of Sagarika with capital at Port Sakaria. The legislative assembly as well as the judicial high court for all the islands is located at Port Sakaria.

    Roka Islands was just a group of forested islands till the end of 17th century. The islands gets its name from the Roghan and the Kabal Tribes which used to inhabit these islands before civilization reached here. Port Sakaria (earlier known as Sakaru) was the only civilised island comprising of a small fishing village and a resting hub for passing cargo ships.
    In the 1685 the first Joralish ship anchored in the Sakaria Port. Since no empire of the mainland claimed ownership of these islands, it was easy for them to set up their business there. Initially setting up it has there economic port in the Rastan Ocean region, the island played a critical role in the shaping of next couple of centuries of the region.
    Within 1729 warships and troops had rolled in and now Port Sakaria controlled all the sea trade routes in this region. In 1734-35 the Jorals first attacked the mainland and occupid the modern Dakshin Pradesh and Gandha region and by 1845 most of the mainland was part of the Joralish empire. Headquarters was shifted to Magadh from Port Sakaria in 1788 and the island became a fortified naval base.
    During the Global War of early 20th century, Port Sakaria acted as naval base for the Joralish Empire with major ships based there. Also it had an air force base (present day civil airport). The new air force base was built in 1945. Sagarika gained independence in 1938 and became a democratic republic. Port Sakaria was made the capital of Roka Islands.
    Due to governments' reforms in the 1984 five-year Plans, not only huge foreign investments poured in, there was great indigenous development. Now it is countries foremost tourism hub with casinos and exotic islands and but also one of the leading port for export and import.
    Sagarika is sovereign democratic republic of the Tolasia continent. It is bounded by Rastan Ocean on the east and the Sagarika sea on the west. It shares boundaries with 8 nations, 5 in north( Satama, Bhupen, Bolaris, Kovata, Gobra) and 3 in south(Volkistan, Lodha, Peshama). It is the largest country of the region and it is a subcontinent of its own. It comprises of 14 states.

    Sagarika, prior to independence, was known as the Joralish Empire of Sagarika. The Jorals occupied and ruled over the land for more than 200 years. Subjected to various atrocities and oppression, the land gave birth to various revolts and freedom movements and finally Sagarika gained independence on 18 July,1938. This day is celebrated as national holiday.

    At the time of independence, Satama was partitioned from Sagarika due to various reasons. Most of the princely states decided to join the Union of Sagarika. However Satama occupied the northern part of Parasu princely state in 1939 and ceasefire was declared. However in the second war with Satama in 1944, Sagarika took back the the lost district of Parasu. It is now a separate state and was not merged with Raj Pradesh for political reasons. Satama attacked Sagarika again in 1974, however this time with the help Talipora in north, Satama suffered heavily losses and lost a lot of territory.
    In 1988 Volkistan attacked Sagarika from south, but they too suffered loss of territory and large part of land is in disputed zone. Lodha a separate state, is on the verge of merging with Union of Sagarika, as various protests are going on and soon a referendum is to be passed in favour of merger. Due to hostile neighbours, Sagarika has strengthened its military strength. Today Sagarika is a world superpower with 3rd largest military and 4th largest economy of world. By land area it is 10th largest nation. It is part of an elite group of nations as it not only has 4 aircraft carriers but also it is a nuclear nation.
