Auburn

Auburn is a heavily industrialized district of the Seattle Metroplex.

Geography

Auburn is an industrial district of smoke-belching factories and blue-collar (read: downtrodden) workers.

Auburn is bordered by Renton in the north, Tacoma in the west, Puyallup in the south, and the lands of the Salish-Shidhe Council in the east. Green River flows through the district.

Demographics

Typical mix for Seattle. Most inhabitants are blue collar workers.

Politics

Mayor Zax Pound-Down, a flamboyant ork, was elected in 2048. He was concerned with the environmental degradation in the district, and had to fight off a number of smear campaigns.

In the late 2050s and 2060s Humanis Policlub influence begun growing in the district, leading to racial tensions.

Economy

Auburn has over 400 factories, metal refineries, and petrochemical plants, and thus it is the manufacturing and industry heart of Seattle. The biggest factories are the ones owned by Federated Boeing, including the huge Boeing facility in eastern Auburn. Renraku has a computer hardware complex in the district’s west end, easily the largest factory of its type.

Culture

Auburn boasts its own amateur baseball (Auburn Cardinals) and Urban Brawl (Auburn Rubblers) teams, and the Seattle International Raceway is in this district.
