Tánwotahfa (Fáknir: /ˌtau̯nʋotahˈfa/), locally known as Otahfa, is the capital and largest city of the Siprál province in the Confederation of Lower Boroso, one of the two Fáknir-majority provinces, and is situated 300-400km from the national capital Äzäbrëzväřg.

Etymology

While tánw "village" is clearly Fáknir, the rest of the city's name is of disputed origin, as the original Aktari name of the town was not recorded when Fáknirs settled the area. The leading theory suggests it may be from Aktari χote tawaϥa "peaceful garden". A popular folk etymology among the locals is xo ctaнćo "journey to suitable land", although this construction is disputed by linguists.

History

The area around Tánwotahfa has been intermittently inhabited by several human populations native to the area since at least 3000 years.

The settlement itself was founded by Aktari exiled from the Fáknir Empire, following the Aktari insurrections between the year 850 and 900 against the recently arrived Fáknir rule. There is evidence of several Aktari settlements having been present nearby, although none have remained. Around1620 as a result of several years of drought and resulting famine, most families emigrated. When Fáknirs settled in the region by 1700, the town was nearly deserted. Fáknir settlers moved into the town for its existing infrastructure and defensible position on a hill overlooking a river bend. The town is first mentioned in 1712 in a decree by the Fáknir emperor of the time declaring it a city of the empire, however imperial rule could never be implemented due to the logistical issues borne of the great distance from the Fáknir heartland and resistance from the locals in the region.

The city began to expand rapidly after 1950 as a result of industrial developments and subsequent urbanisation.
