  1. San Fransisco is fairly securely controlled by the PRT and the Elite. There are enough hoops to jump through on the side of both hero and villain that the bar to entry is as high as just about anywhere else. This is compounded by the fact that the local standard for showmanship, branding, sellability and style are all really up there.
    Long story short, if you show up and you didn't spend a small fortune on your costume (and really sell yourself, make no mistakes, make yourself part of the narrative, and so on and so on), they're going to treat you like you were one of the Merchants wanting a seat at the table in Somer's Rock. Most of the people who can't break in or who slip in standing/perception will move out to nearby areas and try to rebrand/re-establish a footing before getting back in. All of this creates a kind of tiering where there are a lot of celebrity capes fighting (sometimes literally) for the public eye, both villain and hero, and there's a lot of dregs who just don't care, while the B-listers lurk at the periphery waiting for a shot.
    Corporate teams are commonplace, as are the betting/ranking sites like the ones Bambina goes on about. Cause celebres{sic} are very much a thing, and cops and robbers are in full force, because crossing a line means getting on the bad side of both PRT and the Elite. Fighting and conflict gets about as intense as it can while not stepping over that line.
    On a deeper, more intense level, the Elite and PRT are playing a long-term game of chess, with both sides digging for info, investigating or moving key pieces into place. They ostensibly cooperate, making sure the city remains theirs in the mutual sense, but both are undercutting and diminishing the other while aiming to avoid upsetting the balance. Moves made on this front do very often cross the line, but not in public view. - Elaboration by WildBow on Reddit
  2. The largest 65 cities in the United States host individual departments as of 2012. They are numbered accordingly, in order of decreasing size.
