Hufo (Isokyrian: ᚻᚢᚠᛟ; Russian: Катринаград, Katrinagrad) is the capital and most populous city in Isokyria. Hufo has existed since at least the 10th century but was only incorporated by Royal Charter in 1714 during the rule of Anne, Queen of Great Britain. By 1871, it had become the de facto capital of the Dominion of Isokyria and was made the official capital by Queen Victoria.

Hufo is the economic, political, and cultural center of Isokryia. Considered a global city, it is home to several domestic and foreign companies. Hufo's economy mirrors that of the nation's and is largely based on crude oil production but retains a strong tradition of fishing and other maritime industries.

Hufo is known around the world as the city where the "Past meets the future" as influences of the city history fuse with the social and technological developments of the modern age. This has influenced Isokyrian art of the past decade, giving rise to the Hufo movement.

Hufo is governed by a 9-member council and a mayor, who also serves as the Chairman of the Council. Elections in the city occur every three years, the most recent being in 2014. Leif Sigurdsson is the current Mayor of Hufo.

Etymology

The etymology of Hufo is uncertain. It may derive from a proto-Germanic word husu, meaning "house" but it is not clear how this word would have come to refer to the whole city.

In Russian, the city is referred to as Katrinagrad, named after St. Katrina of Sarov.

History

Humans did not settle what would become Hufo until the mid-4th century. The island's rough coastlines made it difficult for early sea-faring societies to land and establish settlements. Migrants from Scandinavia became the first permanent inhabitants of Isokryia in or around 511. Their own unique culture, language, and traditions began to form which laid the groundwork for the development of Isokyrian society, eventually evolving into modern Isokyria.
