You’d always think that you would prefer to live in those high-tech Bwap and Vilani neighbourhoods. But the Bwap love their sweaty humidity, the Vilani are way too orderly and conformist, and both are ridiculously conformist and bureaucratic.
Like Swiss-style, “call the police if you flush your toilet at 10 pm” conformist.
So instead, you picked the Solomani side of town. Reasonable rents, low on the nit-picking regulations (or easily handled with a little bribe), and nobody worries much if there’s just a gunshot or three in the middle of the night. “Another burglar meets an untimely end.”
But there’s a cost for every benefit.
