Three Cities and the Cove, or Mud Siti du Ozust in Coastal Kencari, is a nation in southwestern Smalik on the coast of the Cislendian Ocean. It consists of two parts: the territory of the eponymous Three Cities, bordering Both Watches, Sarigis, Bëltse, and White Bowdani, and the smaller but no less eponymous Cove, which lies further to the northwest and is surrounded by Both Watches and the Cislendian Ocean. The Three Cities gained independence from the Lectern of United Kencari Peoples on 31 October 318. Three months later, the Cove was added to the territory. The city of Mátin (South Martin) acts as capital city of the Three Cities and the Cove, although officially the three cities Mátin, Gúsmin, and Disky, and the capital of the Cove, Urbana Ozust, are considered joint capitals of the nation.
