Prior to the Stark Administration, Gothic was known as one of the most economically unequal cities in America, with the wealth disparity reaching crisis levels. Crime ran rampant throughout the streets, the haphazardly built roadways and dark architecture seemingly attracting a highly criminal atmosphere. The most predominant political issue of the time, President Stark elected to cut it off from the Union to focus on domestic issues.
After years of struggle, the later President Alexander Donn chose to bring it back into the Union. While at first successful, with the city evacuated, the notorious Strigidae Clan attempted to seize it. Instead, it was destroyed entirely as a result of a sinister orbital bombardment. While it was largely empty at the time, an immense loss of life and property ensued as the majority of the former-metropolis was completely obliterated.
The economy of Gothic city is simply crippled. The devastation caused by the orbital bombardment has rendered it completely devoid of any business. Currently; Gothic City is host to one of the world's largest infrastructural initiatives assisted by many corporations, notable examples include: [to be added].
At one time Gothic City boasted a large and high tech system of rail transit, including the largest network of subways in America. Now? The city is devoid of all transport aside from military helicopters and heavy building vehicles that plow through the debris and have started to resurrect the city.

- Power classes: In order to maintain the tone of the city, I want to keep the power level rules in place. Every character from mid-tier to low tier is allowed. If you would be able to beat someone like Midnighter then you are too powerful.
- Territory Control: Due to the new meta of politics I would like to propose a new system based on King Crusaders game play style for crime. In order for Gang/Families/Criminal Organizations to control an area, they would have to attempt to take over IC instead of automatically saying that they are dealing drugs or distributing guns in that area. Similarly, vigilantes can contest that neighborhood and attempt to liberate it IC. The more they control of the city, the more their gang grows in numbers and resources. The longer a criminal or a hero holds the area, the more they can say they have influenced it (ex: more/less corruption, muggings, drug deals, etc) This would give the heroes a chance to fight off the criminals more effectively and create IC conflict.
