Primate City?

Answer

A primate city refers to the leading city within its country or region that is disproportionately larger than any of the others within urban hierarchy. A 'primate city' has one large city with many other smaller cities and towns, hence no intermediate-sized urban centres, which is in contrast to the linear 'rank-size distribution'.
