An industrial city in the American Midwest. To the north of the city lies Raccoon Forest, and the Arklay Mountains beyond.
Raccoon city is a medium-sized city with a population of about 100,000, although it was once nothing more than a minor backwater town. Global pharmaceutical giant Umbrella was mainly responsible for this drastic change.
Roughly thirty percent of the population are employed either directly or indirectly by Umbrella. The company occupies an indispensible role for the city, and is able to directly influence the highest political offices.
