"The city of Tarsonis, on the planet Tarsonis. The most important city on the most important planet of the Confederacy of Man. The city so great they named it twice. The city so large its suburbs had greater populations than some planets. A shining beacon of civilization, keeper of the memories of an Earth now lost to history, myth, and earlier generations."

- Michael Liberty describes the city(src)

The ruins of the capital

Tarsonis City was the capital city of Tarsonis.

A bustling metropolis, the Terran Confederacy was ruled from it in every meaningful way.[1] Both its administration[2] and police force[3] had reputations for corruption.


Tarsonis City was the planet's main city and seat of the Confederate Government.[2] Its population, in the millions,[4] was greater than that of some terran worlds. The sprawling cityscape was punctured by the 'spires' of its tallest buildings,[2] its architecture ranging from such high-rise structures, to slab-like appartment complexes, to slums and mazelike streets.[4] The city was named twice because of its grandeur.[2]

During the Great War, the city was ruined by the Sons of Korhal and zerg invasion of Tarsonis. Rebel and Confederate forces battled in the streets and the western precincts was set aflame by a crashed battlecruiser.[2]
