A Small town roughly the size of 3 football fields with 20,000 people. The whole town is related because there are only two ways for people to get in and out, so new comers are very rare.
The highlight of the week is on Friday nights where the whole town gathers in a cluster fuck to support their football team that takes the game way to serious.
The police force in Winthrop thinks they work for the CIA. The teachers have sex unwanted/unprotected sex with the students, but this mostly goes unnoticed because the students dont want to get their parents in trouble.
