The city is the only surviving city of the Water Tribe. Built inside high walls of ice and in inhospitable tundra terrain, the Northern Water Tribe prospers in its isolation. No attack by the Fire Nation on the city during the Hundred Year War has ever succeeded, including the massive Siege of the North.
Unlike its sister tribe, the Northern Water Tribe is largely populated and relatively prosperous.
