Ravonne is the capital city of Kathia. With a population of 2.7 million and a further 6.3 million in its metropolitan area, Ravonne is the second largest city in Kathia following Monitava. Historically, Ravonne had been the largest, most important, and most influential city in Kathia. However, the city was outpaced by Monitava in the 15th and 16th centuries. Nevertheless, Ravonne remains one of the most important cities in the world, and is the seat of the Empire's government. The Ravonne Region (synonomous with the Ravonne Province and including some areas outside of the province) had a GDP of Ↄ677 as of 1607, making it the second most productive metropolitan area after Monitava. According to several measures, Ravonne has been ranked as one of the most expensive cities to live in in the the world, and has generally been ranked as the most expensive in Kathia according to the Imperail Cost of Living Survey in 1609.

Ravonne has historically, and still is, been a major transport hub. Its central location in Kathia and status as the capital has made it the largest railway hub in Kathia, and it is home to the state-owned Imperial Rail. It is also a major road transportation hub, and contains 2 of the 10 busiest airports in Kathia (the 2nd the 4th busiest). The city is home to an extensive public transport system, most notably the Ravonne Metro, which opened in 1487 making it one of the oldest metro systems in the world as well as one of the busiest, serving 5 million passengers per day. The city is home to a number of historical institutions and museums, such as the Imperial Museum of Art, Fedhasza Sciences Museum, and the Modern Art Center, each home to very large collections of art and history. The historical center of the city is home to a large number of historical buildings, including the Imperial Palace, National Diet Building, Saint Reszava Cathedral, Guidhau Palace and Gardens, and the Illic VI Arch.
