Kanash is a Uralican city, located in east-central Chuvashia on Highway UH-1, about halfway between Ulator and Cheboksary. The name of the town is actually the Chuvash equivalent to the Russian word sovet, which means "council." The town was originally named Shikhrany in Russian (Shŏkhran in Chuvash), and there were mullings about changing back to that, however the current name seems to have stuck.

Kanash's industrial sector is largely based around the building of mobile heavy machinery, such as forklifts, and also, the production of construction necessities such as drywall and standard-issue windows. There are also food production and ceramics industries, and a hi-tech sector.

Given how Kanash is situated centrally within Chuvashia, it is quite important in terms of retail. Most towns in the area do have grocery stores, however the vast majority of clothing and other supply stores are in Kanash.


Not surprisingly, the population is very much an even split between ethnic Russians and Chuvash-speaking Turks. There are also minorities of Mari (exclusively Eastern Mari-speaking) and Tatars in the city.

Although a largely industrial city, Kanash does have some tourist value, and not just for shopping - besides windows, fine glass is also made in Kanash, and many glaziers in the area do operate some touring of their facilities. Since the fall of the old Russian system in Cataclysm, the Chuvash have tried to establish an ethnographic museum in the area, finally succeeding about four months before they joined Uralica at the beginning of October 2009. Besides this, they also have a general arts and sciences museum.


Kanash has no professional sports teams in nationally-based leagues, however they are expected to field teams in the Vitonen in 2011.
