Washington D.C. is the capital of the United States of America, the one remaining global superpower and the country that has been considered the leader of the free world since World War 2. Much of what takes place in Washington D.C. has ripple-effects that influence events around the world. Congress passes laws and the President issues orders that set the agenda for the entire country. Then Pentagon and the CIA just south of D.C. in Virginia set the agenda for the entire world. Ambassadors flock to the city to represent their respective nations and attempt to sway U.S. foreign policy in their favor, or at least maintain good relations with the nation that is capable of devastating any country that stands in it’s way.

As the Capital the city is home not only to top authorities in the nation, but between the Smithsonian, the Library of Congress, the National Museum of Art and the National Archives it also contains many of America’s most precious national treasures. Majestic architectural edifices and towering monuments serve to remind everyone in the city that this is a major center of global power.

It should come as no surprise then, that there should also be a strong concentration of supernatural power here as well. A number of powerful ley lines flow through the city carrying magical energies to empower the actions of those who know how to tap into it. Since the prehistoric era the Courts of the Fae and other supernatural creatures have fought bitter battles against one another for control of these supernatural energy, and those wars continue to rage into modern nights. Then there are also supernatural entities and organizations that covet the influence wielded by the Federal Government and seek to gain control over it.

The fact that this city is the capital of the free world shapes so much of what goes on the city. The majority of people working in the city are connected to the Federal Government in some way, and it is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country. Because of the power wielded here almost every decision made by those in power has major consequences, and so the power struggles here, both mundane, and paranormal, are much higher stakes than those of other cities.
