Niyi is the largest city in Sanama. The name in Sanaman is Niyi, in Istvanistani and Praeta Nee, and in Cisamarrese Nea. Niyi served as the capital of independent Sanama from 1671 to 1679, when the capital was moved to Sanama City, later renamed Semisa City. Niyi forms the center of the vast Niyi metropolitan area, extending through the people's republic with the same name, into the surrounding areas of Pixa Teta and Harekina. With 23 million inhabitants as of 1704, the area is highly urbanised. The city as well as the cities surrounding it inside Niyi PR struggle to keep up with demands for housing, causing improvised urban sprawl on the southern plains.

Niyi is the capital of the eponymous people's republic, established in 1703. After the communes in the city federated to form a citywide district government after the formation of the First Republic, a referendum approved the merger of the city and canton governments.
