The capital of Volkhov and home to the Ataman, Goriky Nadivgorod (often simply called Nadiv) is a structured and orderly place, as well as being home to perhaps the most technologically advanced infrastructure in all of Empyrea. All homes are wired with electricity, and the telephone has made communication simpler than ever before. People of all standings, high and low, come to Nadiv if they wish for a chance to change their lives, to find something new and to do more than the world has offered them.
The former capital under the rule of the Kniaz, Rtutnygorod (often called Rtutny) is now often considered the slums by even its inhabitants. It is a cursed place, and even travelling there is difficult due to the high concentration of Anomalies which surround it. Because of this, it is seen as the unofficial haven for Buzzards, those brave, stupid, or simply greedy souls who scour the wastes for Treasures. Due to its size and former importance, it still maintains a significant population, though technologically it is by and away the least developed of any city in Volkhov.
Typically simply called Kuloy, Groznyjkuloy is, inarguably, the most normal place in Volkhov. It is entirely free of Anomalies, as its former position as a prison island led the Kniaz Feodor to ignore it entirely as one of his holdings to be protected. Because of this, it has now become, somewhat ironically, a bastion of upper class homes, where the richest of boyars keep their families. Citizens of Kuloy are no less Volkhovian than those of the mainland, of course, and if anything their loyalty to the Bogatyr is more extreme than most. The Kniaz was who banished them, of course. It would only be right to support those who overthrew him.
The most major trading center of Volkhov, as well as the homeport for its 1st Fleet, Donskoy is notable for two things. The first of these is its state of the art maritime research, developing naval vessels which can only be described as cutting edge, including the Chislobog-class undersea combat ship and the Veter-2 undersea rocket. The second of Donskoy's distinct honors is its place as the home of Volkhov's largest crime family, the Alborg. The Alborg were at one point Bogatyr, but were removed from office by Kniaz Feodor for corruption, but their roots run exceptionally deep. Indeed, some say that their ability to stay in power is due to dealings with the Bogatyr even now.
