Duis, also known as Duisbourg is the seat of government of Andalus, and the capital city of the Duis-Strausbourg region of Tiberias. With a population of 9,515,880 inhabitants (as of 1 January 2015) and more than 13 million inhabitants including the suburbs, it is the largest city in Tiberias, and the second largest in Andalus. The city houses both the Tiberian and National Parliament. The city served as the capital of Tiberias for over 300 years. Until the beginning of the 20th century it was the largest Etruscan-speaking city in the world, before being overtaken by Deira. Duis is host to the Columbian Parliament, along with Hejaz Cooperation Council. The city lies along the southern coast of the Donan Peninsula, directly across the Tiberian Channel from Taza.

The city was ranked as the world's most livable city in 2015, the first Andalusian city to ever hold the title. Duis hosts 162 foreign embassies, far more than that of Saadiyat. It serves as a hub for air and rail traffic, and is home to the third largest airport in Columbia (Charles du Elias International Airport). The high standard of living and cosmopolitan culture has made Duis an attractive destination for immigrants in Abbasid, with a high concentration of universities and historical sights.

Duis is considered the legislative and democratic capital of the Columbian Union. The Treaty of Clemens, which officially ended the Great War in Columbia was signed in the city. It is a symbol of Pan-Columbian and Columbianism in it's highest state, topping the list of most popular Columbian destination continuously.
