The town of Ankan lies at the southern most fork inthe Nupar River. It lies along the major trade road that runs from Aramanda, along the Nupar River, all the way to the town of Ikemar. Caravans travelling to and from Ikemar all pass through Ankan.

The town of Ankan does not get much rain and the region has poor soil. Crops are irrigated from the river. Even so, the city depends on fish from the river to supplement what is grown. There are numerous mining villages in the hills to the south and Ankan which ship raw ore up to Ankan.
