Council Island (formerly Mercer Island), is where Seattle hosts all of their embassies with the nations of North America. At one time it use to house the rich and corporate, but since the volcanic eruptions in 2017, the island is mostly underdeveloped and heavily forested. Along the freeway that moves people between Downtown and Bellevue, a traveller will find the embassies for Salish-Shidhe and other NAN embassies, as well as CAS, Tir Tairngire, Aztlan, Russia, Japan, Hong Kong, the Canton Confederation, and the Corporate Court. As the island is largely unpopulated, it is home to some paranormal critters. An entire tribe of Sasquatch call Council Island their home, as well as a half dozen nests for Thunderbirds.
Unsurprisingly, as a bevy of national boarders make up this area, jurisdiction is a overly complex mess. Every nation has its own penalties for illegal activity so you might want to think two or three times before hopping over a fence. Unsurprisingly, the crime syndicates keep a small presense in the area, as diplomatic pouches are perfect for smuggling all types of contraband.
