New Venceia, officially the City and County of New Venceia, is the cultural, commercial, and financial center of Eastern Alexandria. With an estimated population of 1.2 million as of 1 May 2037, it is the second-largest municipality in the state of Alexandria. It is the center of the New Venceia metropolitan area, the largest in the state with a growing population of nearly 7 million.

New Venceia is named after Venceia, the capital of Caphiria, as the people who settled it arrived from there. It is often considered the birthplace of Cartadania as the city was founded in 1306, making it the oldest permanent settlement in Cartadania. Despite this, much of the original city has been razed and rebuilt. Much of the modern city architecture borrows heavily from West Audonian architecture.

The city has a very diverse economy and has a recent particular trend towards investment and real estate. New Venceia also has the highest average household income in the nation at R$132,918 as of May 2037. In similar nature, it is one of the most expensive cities to own a home in the country as well, with some homes reaching into the upper hundred-millions. Two neighborhoods in particular, Aventine Downs and Valerian Sands have homes all starting above R$5 million.

New Venceia is a very well developed city, with an extensive yet efficient metro system running through all of the city's districts. The local authority for transportation, New Venceia Metro Authority, has a dynamic transit model that is revised once per fiscal year to keep things flowing. This means that when new areas of the city are developed, they won't be long without service.

Having been a city for over 700 years has given the city a very rich history, one shaped by time and location and continuing to be shaped by its residents.
