    Hub City is located in southern Illinois; it is southeast of St Louis, Missouri and north of Cairo, Illinois; it is based on East St Louis, Illinois. It is widely regarded as one of the, if not the, most corrupt cities in the United States of America, and experienced complete collapses of social order on a fairly regular basis. It was run for some time by Mayor Wesley Fermin, a drunkard who acted mainly as a puppet for various criminal elements in the city. The post was later assumed by his wife, Myra Fermin. It is the home of The Question, who fights to maintain order and expose corruption.
