Brillo (Brih-lo) is the capital city and unitary authority of the state of Pela Neve. The city is the third most populous in the country of Schalafania and one of only five cities with a population of over one million inhabitants. The city is located in the west of the country just 30 miles from the coast.
Brillo was first settled in the late 18th century by American explorers from the west. Like many of the early towns in Schalfania, it served as base for the American forces during the War of the West against both France and the advancing Spanish army.
The settlement was named 'Brillo', a Spanish word for 'shine' in order to trick the Spanish in to believing it was one of their bases so the Americans could ambush them as they did in 1794.
The city is located in the West of Schalafania and is located 394 miles to the west of Munamanda. However, Brillo is under 30 miles from the three other major Pela Neven cities; Laxton, Portland and Stilwater.
