I think I remember Santharia is meant to be about 1000-1200 kilometres from north to south, that are 200-300 km in width. Is that about right?

For the cities, how big are they meant to be. As they map is pretty rough, only showing the most important settlements in an area, I thought about city sizes being something like:

6000-12000 inhabitants for one house
12000-30000 for two houses.
>30 000 three houses

Santhala is meant to be bigger than 100000 right?

My suggestions above would be slightly bigger than the average medieval towns but as we want to be more the Renaissance kind of culture for Santharia I thought the cities could be maybe somewhat bigger. I als don't know wether this would include the neighborhood (farms, etc.) as well which would add about as many people to the total population.
What would the amount of rural poulation be? About 80 % or so?

A common line would be helpful here, maybe in a sticky topic, to get a better idea of the dimensions of everything...

population for settlements usually goes like this Koldar

Hamlet = 10 to 120 inhabitants
village = 121 to 1200 inhabitants
town = 1201 to 15000 inhabitants
City = 15001 and higher

You could also add a metropolis type if you want to and if the world and tech of the people can support such a high number of people. they are of 100,000 or higher in population.

As for size, well, I don,t really know...
