The Bran District is the capital city of the Commonwealth of Dracul, located in between the states of North and South Dracul. Bran District was once the capital of North Dracul, but in July 2020, the National Parliament found it was best and mostly fair for Bran to become similar to Washington DC. Since most of the resources were aimed at the capitol of Dracul, North Dracul received more benefits than South Dracul. Citizens of now have voting rights after a law was passed in parliament allowing Bran Citizens to vote.
Bruce Cooper was the first Mayor of Bran and Christopher Karper was Deputy Mayor, effective November 26, 2020 Chris Karper assumed office of Bran, due to Mr Cooper's resignation. Shortly after Mr. Karper's appointment, he himself resigned under allegations of military personnel fraud and Hunter Prater assumed office. Mr. Prater didn't last and he too resigned after attempting a coup in Dracul and Secretary of Defense Connor Modena took over. He served as mayor until 2021 when he resigned due to familial duties.
On 27 January 2021, David Atobaje was elected fifth Mayor of Bran District. During Atobaje's term was when Bran District really began to flourish.

Isidoro Amalfitano, the last mayor of Bran before the office was dissolved under the military government.
In a final attempt to allow Bran District to continue operations, an ultimatum was presented, that being, allow the military set up a government that doesn't have confliction or the district be completely destroyed. After months of editing various documents, and editing the City Charter the new government was unveiled, this time removing the Mayor position and having only a city council. Eugene Smith was voted in as a councilman by citizens of Bran, and appointed Chairman by Military Governor Connor Modena.
Peace was short-lived as Smith began removing some anti-corruption countermeasures installed in Bran's revamp, and was later expelled from Dracul.
