Akurun (Imo: Akùrún) officially the District of Akurun (Imo: Agbègbè ti Akùrún), is the capital and largest metropolis of Ayorin. The city is the core of the greater Akurun Metropolitan Area that lies on the Sanyan Delta in the center of Ayorin. Akurun was selected as the capital of Ayorin after the merger of the Republic of Ayorin and Brieslandic Ayorin in 1952 as a compromise between the ruling parties. Akurun is the most populous city in all of Kaftia and the Northern Hemisphere.

As the seat of government of Ayorin, Akurun has a special designation as a Federal Territory, meaning the core city is controlled by the national government. The city has no mayor but has an elected representative who works with national officials to set the policy of the city. In 2000, the seat of the National Government was moved from Akurun to Noé because of overcrowding and congestion in the former. Akurun remains the capital, and all foreign embassies still remain in Akurun, while the National Assembly has relocated to the city of Noé.

Akurun was the fastest growing city in the world until 2014. The city's explosive population growth is fueled by the influx of domestic migrants from the rural regions of Ayorin as the country rapidly urbanizes after the liberalization of markets beginning in the late 80s. Akurun is a major financial centre in Kaftia; the megacity has the ???-highest GDP in Kaftia and houses one of the largest and busiest seaports on the continent. The city has historically been very vulnerable to flooding, due to such factors as high rainfall, low lying elevation, poor natural drainage and location next to multiple bodies of water. District and federal authorities have installed a complex system of levees, spillways, and drainage pumps in an effort to protect the city.
