Esmeralda, also called Esmeralda Prime, is the capital of the Esmeraldan Empire and the most populous city-state in the world. It is named for the former Esmeralda County, which was a county in the west of U.S. state of Nevada prior to the Advenan War. The city is often referred to as "Esmeralda Prime" to distinguish it from Esmeralda Minor and the Principality of Esmeralda, of which it is a part and also the capital.

The city is subterranean and built four kilometers below the Earth's surface, just above the Earth's mantle, and exists entirely underground. It consists of a massive series of caverns deep under the ruined planet's surface, close to the planet's core for warmth, power and protection.

The capital city is really two places, Esmeralda Upper and Esmeralda Lower. Traditionally, citizens, property and territory of Esmeralda Prime is split between two ruling houses, including House Conteville and House Carpentier. However, the ruling Emperor of the Esmeraldan Empire and the Viceroy of the Esmeraldan Empire truly command more respect and authority within the capital than either house.

History Edit

Following World War 5, the Advenans began experimenting on human survivors and kept them in camps for centuries while conducting experiments.

In 4431 a group of two-hundred prisoners (lead by Jeremy Tull) from an Advenan experimentation facility escape with a stolen shuttle. They crash in the Nevada dessert, in the county of Esmeralda. There, they discover an abandoned and forgotten fallout shelter from World War 4 and resurrect it. Within fifty years, they build a fairly prosperous society inside the fallout shelter and name it Esmeralda.
