Los Santos in GTA III Era
Los Santos is a city in San Andreas that is very wealthy and full of gangsters and movie stars. The population is over 3 million people and is the home to a movie studio as well as the Interglobal television studio. There is a train that connects this town to San Fierro and Las Venturas. The most infamous street is Grove Street which is south of downtown Los Santos, just minutes west of East Las Santos where there is a strong Hispanic population. This street is the home of the Grove Street Families, a once powerful gang gone soft due to the Ballas gang getting wealthy off the drug trade.
The police here are corrupt and the politicians are hardly seen on the streets. They have a motorcross track, several basketball courts, and an observatory to gaze the stars in. Occasionally, independent drug dealers are seen carrying huge wads of cash from recent drug purchases. Graffiti is commonplace and people frequent the horse track betting parlor. The wealthy suburbs in the north are the homes of wealthy businessmen and Madd Dogg, the killer rap artist. There is also the occasional shack within in the wealthy district, but they are the leftovers from a period prior to the gentrification of northern Los Santos.
