San Francisco is the self-selected capital of Pacifica. They created it, they control the greatest concentration of wealth, and the vast majority of Pacifica’s population lives inside their borders. So the other member States of Pacifica have never contested that leadership role. They build the best virtual worlds and personal assistant AIs, and their real, physical ivory towers are some of the most beautiful and exclusive places to live on Earth and beyond. San Francisco is truly a place of comfort and security for those who can afford to live there. It is also home to one of the largest wealth gaps between the haves and have nots in America. It is truly as impressive as the ivory towers that touch the very sky.
