of the first-ever colonies of the early Drakonian Empire, and perhaps the first, being founded in roughly 9,800 BC, Thysia has seen a lot pass through its walls in the ten thousand years of its existence. At one point being the largest city-state in Doras Edrossi and perhaps the largest city in the world (after Drakonia, of course) from the Fourth to the Sixth Eras, as the main headquarters for slavery in the Drakonian Empire, that number quickly plummeted with the onset of the Gladiator War and later, the Dragon Wars, which nearly completely destroyed all of Thysia's existing infrastructure and caused it to shrink from nearly a million to just a measly 10,000 after 500 BC. Without slavery, the city had little income and had to rely on other measures to become even a shadow of its former self.
Ever since then, Thysia has been regrowing, and remains at a stagnant 200,000 people; and it also remains the only city-state to tolerate slavery, sticking to the traditions that made it great centuries and even now, millennia ago.
