Selatapura (セラタプラ Seratapura) is a coastal city situated on the Gunther Peninsula in southwestern Usea, west of Axel Bay. The city is physically connected to the International Space Elevator by a bridge.
Selatapura is a highly-developed port city, with a large port area and developing residential and business center. The International Space Elevator is built on an island near the city, with a long bridge linking the two together. Selatapura also features a large military presence, including an airfield and naval forces, likely as support for the space elevator.
The city was the site of at least one major battle during the Osea-Erusea Conflict. Erusean forces seized the space elevator and engaged the international military forces stationed there, sinking a large number of warships.
- "Selatapura" is a hybrid name derived from two languages: selatan from Malay, and pura from Sanskrit, which mean "south" and "city" respectively.
- Selatapura is highly reminiscent of Singapore. It features curved buildings very similar to the Marina Bay Sands, a district similar to that of the Central Area, and a stadium that looks exactly like the National Stadium.
- According to the Ace Combat 04: Shattered Skies briefing map, Selatapura would have most likely been under the control of an unnamed Usean country allied with ISAF. However, according to the Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy and Ace Combat 7 briefing maps, Selatapura—and the entirety of the Gunther Peninsula—is in Erusea's borders. The release of Ace Combat 7 is expected to address this inconsistency.
