Seattle is home to a crowd centered on culture, technology, and is one of the more Liberal cities of the United States.
One of the major traders with Japan, Seattle harbors a large amount of Asian culture which has spread into its technological areas (Boeing, Microsoft, Nintendo, etc).
Seattle has also been titled the country's video-game central. Home to both Microsoft Game Studios, half of Nintendo, and famous producers such as Bungie, Valve Software, and even the mass-popular Penny Arcade, Seattle has risen to the top in popularity among young game-pioneers. It supports massive conventions such as the Northwest Comic Con, PAX (Penny Arcade Expo), the World Cyber Games Championship, and Anime North.
Aside from its gaming success, Seattle also is home to Boeing, the world's largest aircraft manufacturer, as well as the largest building on Earth.
Other attractions Seattle has to offer is the ever-growing Pike Place Market, a cultural mainframe for the city, multiple Naval and Air Force bases, a heavy influence in politics, and a large Liberal society.

What can I say? I live in California, and I hate it. Seattle is my place, and even though it does has it flaws, I still, and always love the Emerald City.
