The Free City of Pittsburg

I had to make the Pittsburgh area of some importance given its history in the Post-Apocalyptic role-playing genre. So here's another area description from the upcoming ZZZ Quick Guide to North America. GTSL means Government, Technology, Safety, Liberty with 0 being least and 9 most. This keys the map found on the back cover.

15. The Free City of Pittsburg
Oligarchic Democratic Free City: The Dread Lord, Marshal Merthyr Agis
GTSL: 7633

The Free City of Pittsburg has recently become a powerhouse in the region, successfully attacking The Hill Lordships, the Domain of The Erie Lord, the Central Ohio Nation, and The Ohio March simultaneously. Merthyr Agis came out of the ruins of old Pittsburgh with great technology, united the four Allegheny clans into a single group, and founded a new settlement within the ruins of Pittsburgh from which he rules as the elected Marshal.

Visitors to the Free City are required to disarm and pay an entrance fee. For non-citizens, any crime is punished by whipping and a serious crime (such as theft) is punishable by death. The Free City runs several manufactories throughout the ruins of old Pittsburgh and are equipping their soldiers with weapons superior than those possessed by their opponents. It is possible for visitors to get permits to raid into the ruins, but it is an expensive endeavor and all goods removed are subject to possible confiscation at the will of the Marshal.
