Cossa is the capital city of Vegno. It is the country's most populated city with a population of 624,024 residents. Cossa is situated on a bay in central Vegno, on the shore of the Gulf of Cantor of the Strait of Pearls. The city is where the founding fathers created the nation, signing the Constitution of Vegno.

It is the seat of the main institutional bodies, such as the presidential palace, the seat of the Government and the seat of the Assemblea Nazionale.

The city has a large port and is served by the only intercontinental airport, the Aeroporto Internazionale di Cossa (VECO). Cossa is also the main financial, industrial, and cultural centre of Vegno, mainly due to its geographical position within the state.


City government

Cossa is governed by a mayor and a city council. The mayor of Cossa is elected directly by Cossa voters.

The City Council elections are based on a proportional system with preferences: for each list, the candidates with the most preferences are elected proportionally to the seats assigned to the list, with the lists supporting the elected mayor being granted around 60% of the total seats to guarantee governability.

The city has a number of public beaches, including those at Millepini and Casone. Fresh sea breeze, soft golden sands, and the sounds of passing seagulls form an ideal combination for hot summer days in the city. Millepini is especially popular with its breathtaking views of the Old Town. People usually walk, bike or skate down the seaside pathways.
