Xanthus is a large central province with hot climate and many spots of rocky terrain. It is not very pleasant to live there. But you are sent there to rule, not on a vacation. Start making rich houses in your city in order to achieve the higher prosperity rating. But remember that rich people don't like to work. But they and their property still need to be defended. Resist the invading armies in this central climate region and you will make me happy. In return I won't bother you with any requests.
