From:Herman Miller <hmiller@...>

Here's a first pass of the countries of the world in Tirelat, with their
capitals and largest cities, along with other familiar cities (e.g.,
Chicago, Alexandria, Bombay). I'll begin with the countries that touch the
equator, and progress northward and southward from there. Information is
from the 1999 edition of AAA World Atlas; corrections, updates,
pronunciation hints, or general comments would be appreciated.

Notes: /vor/ is "region" (or in this case "country", "-land"); /lhat/ is
"language", /zhu/ is "and", /moki/ is "west", /niilhi/ is "east".
