The City-State of Gibraltar

The Day the Great Arch fell is the first day that anyone in the great old city of Tingibaltar had considered such an event possible.  The Arch was so massive and had been there so long that for it to fall was unthinkable. That day was just the beginning of events that the people of the Tingibaltar had not considered for who could have imagined the earth moving, the very land itself pushing its way through the Great Arch and forever dividing one city into two.
Today Gibraltar sits seven miles north across the sea forever separated from Tingis, the northern most city on the great Dark Continent.  The two cities separation had lead to great changes in each community, their cities personalities greatly affected. The narrow straight left behind by volcanic violence that had tore the arch had also lead to great wealth for both cities, their locations being of strategic value both in war and trade.
