Silver Harbour is a city on Silver Island. With a population of 61'060, it is the largest city on that island. It is an independent city. It is located near the south end of the island, mostly on the west side of the sheltered harbour/bay (from which it takes its name, as well as from the island). Its primary industry is mining, which has caused quite some controversy. Near Silver Harbour are the nation's only still-functional, legal mines.
