Taza, also known as Arles, is the capital of the State of Tiberias, and is located on the Tiberian (Andalusian) Riviera in Northern Tiberias. The city is the seat of the Tiberian government, and is the home of the House of Elias, the royal family of Tiberias. Taza borders the Amaar Passage on three sides, and it's sole land border is with the neighboring department of Bordeaux. The city has an area of 2.02 km2 (0.78 sq mi) and a population of about 50,000; it is the most densely populated city in the world. However, Taza's total area has continuously expanded over the years through land reclamation.
