Devros is a city in southwestern Antrium, in the province of Soréto. Devros is known for being the manufacturing capital of Antrium, with the majority of its 3 million citizens working in factory jobs. It is one of Antrium's fastest growing cities, and the country's third largest city, following Sivaris and Corico.
Devros was founded in 1725, by explorer Sréàlo Devros, for whom the city is named. It was incorporated into the country of American Federalist at the time of its founding in 1776. It was a fairly small town until the Industrial Revolution in the 1800s, when many factories came to Devros for its location on the Saint-Sébastien River. It has continued to grow very quickly since then.
It was out of the way of most of the violence in the American Federalist/Riconiaa Refugee Crisis and many refugees fled to the Devros area. Shortly after, during the founding of Antrium, it was one of Soréto's two candidates for capital of Antrium. It was eliminated in the first round, favoring Soréto's other candidate of Balton. They both ultimately lost to the current capital of Sivaris.

The primary industry of Devros is manufacturing and heavy industry. Companies like Sivaris-based auto manufacturers MTA and Antejar Motor Company have large factories in Devros. Other notable companies include Gréàrgo Steel and Lantrak Tires.
Due to its industry-based economy, pollution is a problem in Devros. The city promotes carpooling through carpool lanes on many major roads and discounted parking for carpools.

Devros is home to the Rujàrn N. Trîàmnû International Airport, one of only four Antrian international airports.
Devros is the meeting point of two of Antrium's national highways: AN2, running from Orlesk to the Antrium-Fonzoland border, and AN4, running from the Antrium-South Antrium border through Sivaris and Anvàln to Orlesk.
