A map of Argovas City and the surrounding region.

Argovas City was the capital city of the planet Argovia. A mining town, it consisted mainly of prefabricated structures deployed during the initial settlement, though a few newer buildings had been built. A well-known landmark was Tanza's gambling parlor, a three-story transparisteel edifice adorned with flashing lights, chrome statues, and many sanchango gambling machines. The rowdy and rough mining personnel living in the city would frequent Tanza's and the many bars in their off-hours.

Outside the town laid a spaceport, several mining complexes, and an Imperial sensor net complex built into the foothills of a nearby mountain range.
