Main Characteristics

Bronson City

Initially it would be a planed city. (TBD)

There is a funny rivalry between Bronson City and Jamesville. As Bronson City is smaller than Jamesville, but more important (as it is the state capital), jamesvillians usually consider bronsonians like "the VIP's rednecks". The same way, bronsonians refers to jamesvillians as "the old grumpies from the coast".

Frankfort

I will update this section when starting to edit this place. ;-)

Jamesville

A not so small seaside town. Several auto-parts companies are located in and around it. Most of people are christic and conservative, but with no extremism. People love baseball, fishing, and cars. There are some immigrant communities but less than 1% of population. The town is not center or even part of any metropolitan area.

Despite to be the bigger town located in a touristic region, Jamesville is the less glamourized place. There are some few luxury condos and hotels, but the marshes around keeps the town a bit isolated from the other places in the coast. The inhabitants, usually retireds and elder people looking for a calm place to rest, are very reserved, being excited only when talking about motorsports or baseball.

A popular saying in Elway and Eastern FSA is "When I retire, I will buy a boat, learn to play golf, and live in Jamesville".

San Bruno

A not so big seaside city. A bit like a cosmopolitan place. A half of the people is black or castellanic, and maybe 25% of the population are immigrants. Tourism (beaches), culture and music are strong here. (TBD)

Economy

Elway is nationally known by its orange and lemon orchards, being one of the bigest producers in all Federal States.

Also, there are some important auto-parts manufacturers based in Elway, specially around Jamesville.

The third most important part of elwayan economy is tourism, because its widely known calm water beaches.
