Nordlich Town: The wealthiest neighborhood in St. Bannick, home to many politicians, financial and cultural leaders. This neighborhood boasts some of the best restaurants and clubs in the city although it is also the most heavily policed and secure area of the city, to the point that it is virtually impossible to get away with even the smallest infraction of the law.
Park Lane: The recreational center of the city, home of Victory Park, St. Bannick University and blocks and blocks of high end shopping, fine dining and more than a few smaller theaters.
Mitte Town: The high culture center of the city boasting a number of theaters and opera houses as well as many high rise residential and commercial buildings.
Suden Town: An upper middle-class region and intellectual region of the city this region seems to draw professors, middle level research and business employees and a number of wealthier students. There are a great many sports and recreational offerings, public and private clubs and seemingly endless coffee and retail shops.
Kreuzberg Village: The artistic center of the city, this village houses and caters to a largely artistic population with many galleries, schools and niche eateries and clubs. Kreuzberg Village also boasts some of the most interesting architectural offerings in the city and houses many smaller parks, mostly houses on rooftops and in-between buildings.
Pankow: A middle class neighborhood with all the trappings there-of including fairly priced residential units, restaurants and recreational offerings.
Betrieb Village: A blue collar neighborhood offering a number of public clubs and chain eateries, though very little in the way of culture or art. This is also a heavily policed region of the city due to recent rises in crime and accounts for the majority of arrests, even more than the Hammers, though that likely has more to do with the lack of patrol in the Hammers.
The Hammers: The poorest region of the city housing slums and blue collar residents. The Hammers is largely self-policed by a few “families” and working under its own set of rules and laws. The Constabulary seldom patrols there due to the inherent danger of wearing a uniform. More than three quarters of the region are under or unemployed due to severe over-crowding and lack of educational and employment opportunities.
The Docks: A purely industrial region of the city.
Prenzlauber Village: The high end financial district of the Nation housing 8 out of 10 of the country’s bank and business headquarters including VSI and INTERBANC. It is another highly policed region of the city as almost half the Nation’s economy runs through this one small area.
Langer Island: A largely industrial region used for industrial and military storage.
Insel Island: A recreational and vacation island with many private estates and hotels, boasting a number of public clubs, boutique shopping and fine eateries.
Ostlich North: A lower middle-class neighborhood housing primarily young families and entry level employees.
