Chi-Town is the capitol of the Coalition States (formerly the Coalition of Humanity), and as such is under a near martial law at all times to ensure the safety of its citizens against the potential D-bee threat.
Most broadcasts come out of Chi-Town, largely propaganda in nature, but also include reports on large-scale D-bee activity, or potential D-bee threats.
Chi-Town, before the Great War, was known as Chicago. Chi-Town proper amounts to the Downtown area, and upwards towards the Lake. The rest of the Chicago metropolitan area is referred to as the ’Burbs, and is a good deal less controlled than the central area of Chi-Town.
