Zarechnyy (Finn. Sareeti) is a Uralican city located in Southeast Uralica, seven kilometres north of Highway UH-2 (and the slightly smaller city of Beloyarsky) and roughly 60km east of Yekaterinburg.

Zarechnyy is one of the youngest non-oil-based settlements in Uralica, having only been founded in 1957 and attained city status for the first time in 1992, after the fall of the Soviet Union. A heavily industrial city, it was originally designed for things related to the production of nuclear power, but the Beloyarsky plant was shut down after Great War III after sustaining damage. This of course negatively affected the city's economy, to the end that it would lose its city status in June of 2007.

The city remained, though, because of its secondary industries, which Uralica did its best to nurture upon its annexation in late 2009. Among these were the production of building materials such as drywall, drywall mud, carpentry putty, and smaller pieces of construction technology including stud-finders, levels, squares, and tape-measures, non-metallic minerals, and industrial gas production. With the discovery of massive quantities of iron in various places in Uralica, there was also a need for extra metallurgy factories, so some were built in the city. Finally, hydroelectric power became a viable option for the city, as there was already a large reservoir built up next to the city.

Retail and commerce in the city was purposely kept fairly low compared to most settlements that successfully attain city status, as nearby Beloyarsky and its large retail sector made such a sector in Zarechnyy rather redundant.

The city's shape is considered odd. One city planner who was sent to Zarechnyy on behalf of the Tribal Council likened it to a "dual core" city, as the city is divided in two by Zarechnyy Zaliv, a freshwater bay that is a protrusion from the Beloyarskoye Reservoir.

Culture[]

Zarechnyy, like most new cities, only has a bare minimum of cultural facilities relative to those required of cities, and no real "touristy" areas. As a result, the city was one of the least-visited by foreigners in the first third of 2010.

The population is predominantly Russian, with Finnish, Hungarian, Udmurt, Bashkir, and Khant minorities.
