| Barzat Province|
Proziu Barzates (gr)
|Largest cities||Taizun, Rihe, Kadine Vanst|
The capital and most populous city is Taizun, in the northeast.
Barzat is located within the Camoleo Plains, and its territory is mainly covered with conifer forests.
When the Gerenian People arrived at the region now belonging to Barzat, they found only a few coastal villages. The villages consisted on a number of shacks spread along the coast of the Northern Sea. As the Gerenians continued exploring the coast, they observed white rocks which they called barzat, its Gerenian name. Once established, the new province was named after the white rocks.
Most of the original inhabitants of Barzat descend from the people of Novaya Zemlya, and have Estonian, Russian, and Ukrainian roots. This is reflected in the provincial flag: three horizontal stripes which colours are common to the above-mentioned countries.
Barzat gained province status in August 2012. Its largest city, Taizun, became the provincial capital and received the majority of the government aid, while the rest of the towns remained undeveloped. Nevertheless, since mid-2013, the federal government increased its presence in the zone through the powerful Alvar-Korau-Arnau Clan. The Clan rebuilt a number of towns, and constructed the Model City of Alĵis in the west, near Ramez.
Following the fall of the Gerenian State in November 2013, Alĵis and its surrounding lands declared independence as the Republic of Alĵis. The seccessionist movement was quickly crushed, however, its territory (and most of Barzat's) has not been officially reclaimed by the Gerenian government after it was reestablished.
