Besancon is the capital of the Holy Orthodox Empire of Marquette, and is thus the seat of power for the Noble Court, the Parliament, the High Court, and of course, the Marquetien king and the rest of the federal government. 

The city was founded in 1263 CE, under the rule of the first King of Marquette, Francisco I Delannoy. The site was chosen due to its central location along the scenic west coast, which is where power has traditionally been located. 

Besancon prides itself on being one of the most crime-free cities in the world Up to 40% of the population lives in private gated communities that employ private security forces. 

Much of the population is made up of foreign workers that are allowed to stay in the country for up to three years, and most work as cheap labor.
