100% France, even the mountain ranges line up :D Miare City even seems close to where Paris is located, heh. I'm interested to see how Miare looks, I personally did not like Castelia at all. Too grossly urban imo, who likes dingy alleyways?
I hope this city is reminiscent of Hoenn as far as how rural it is, I loved Hoenn's ties to natures with cities like Fortree and Pacifidlog. X and Y seem very promising with how natural Karos looks.
