The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce is the faction that runs Hollywood. While it is ostensibly an anarcho-capitalist town council to govern Hollywood, it is essentially an organization created to allow Heidi Hollander to be able to run the town "legitimately." There are five members: Heidi Hollander, Manny Wong, Jean Rambeau, George Lin, and Duke Schwag.

Background[edit | edit source]

Her knowledge of Hollywood history and business acumen likely led Heidi to the idea of a chamber of commerce as the structure to use as a government body. Further, as Hollywood is entirely dependent on several powerful merchants, the idea that the "government" draws its power from local business rather than the people directly is entirely logical.

The HCC is able to support itself through the use of it's armed wing the Hollywood Security Patrol which is "hired out" to local merchants. While this is essentially a protection scheme like most other towns in the wasteland, the actual day to day operations of the HCC and the HSP do actually resemble those of a chamber of commerce and private security force more than anything else. While there are many criticisms of the HCC, most residents of Hollywood appear to be satisfied with its governance.
