The Urayan Titan's carcass makes up the Urayan Mountains on Aionios, while the insides makes up the Urayan Tunnels. Noticeably, most of its torso is missing, due to it being destroyed by an annihilation event in the opening.
The Kingdom of Uraya is situated almost entirely within its host Titan, unlike most other nations of Alrest. The Urayan interior has a variety of different features; cliffs, caves, lakes, waterfalls, grasslands. Much of the Titan's body can be explored, from the lower throat all the way to the end of its stomach. While the climate is temperate, most of the land is filled with water, limiting the country's options for agriculture, at least compared to the likes of Gormott, with Gromrice being the prime Urayan staple food. According to Zeke, the Urayan Titan is a very similar kind to Genbu.
While Uraya boasts the highest amount of cities visited in-game, two, a few towns are only mentioned in flavor text.
- Garfont Village - The village where the Garfont Mercenaries are headquartered. Founded by Vandham, the village is located around the Titan's head, right above where its pectoral fins begin, and is home to both hardened mercenaries and war refugees.
- Fonsa Myma - Capital of the Kingdom of Uraya. It appears to be the main entryway into Uraya, with giant doors that can open when the Titan is not diving under the Cloud Sea. Queen Raqura's palace, which harbors Uraya's nobility, can be found above the city.
