The Day After Ragnarok: One Snake Cult, One Ranger
This county has only three towns of note – Benevides, Freer, and San Diego (the county seat) – and just over 20,000 residents. Duval was established as a county in 1858, and retains a solidly Hispanic culture. Duval's agricultural interests waned considerably after 1886, but the discovery of oil has sustained the area since the 1930s.
Duval is notable for effectively being under the complete rule of a corrupt political machine known as The Old Party, which in turn is controlled by George Parr, the Duke of Duval, and the Carrillo family (Parr's closest allies). As fitting the nickname, Parr rules Duval and much of the surrounding counties like one of the kings of old. Parr is involved in a cold war with the King Ranch to the east, due to a percieved slight by former State Representative Richard King against Parr's father, Archie.
Duelling was common prior to the 1900s, and there are three ghost towns in the area – Crestonio, Pila Blanca, and Sweden.
