Snohomish

Snohomish is one of Seattle’s districts.

Geography

Snohomish has large tracts of mountains, hills and woodlands, along with developed land controlled by agribusiness. It is a far cry from the steel towers and plastcrete canyons of the rest of Seattle.

The District of Snohomish is bounded on the northeast by the lands of the Salish-Shidhe, on the southeast by the District of Redmond, on the south by the northwest by the District of Everett. The Snohomish River and its tributaries meander through flat fertile lands in the eastern half of the district. Away from the river valleys, rolling hills dominate this peaceful district.

Demographics

Snohomish is one of the most sparsely populated Districts. Seventy percent of the residents work outside of Snohomish, which makes commuter traffic quite heavy along every highway going in and out of the district.

Culturally, the district has German and Scandinavian heritage.

Politics

In 2048, Mike Walkstrong replaced Daniel Feddersen as the district’s mayor. One of the major elements of his time was reducing the influence of Humanis Policlub in the district. This continued through 2050s and 2060s.

Economy

Primarily agricultural. There is a conflict between major agribusinesses and small farm owners in the area.
