A city is an urban settlement with a particularly important status which differentiates it from a town or a neighborhood. The term City is primarily used to designate an urban settlement with a large population. However, city may also indicate a special administrative, legal, or historical status. In Lovia, a city must have a population of at least three thousand and at least five neighborhoods.
