* WorldOfBadass: Most of the pirates Connor hangs out with have been Academy trained--trained in Piratical arts such as sailing and fencing since they were younger than ten years old. Given the short average life expectancy of an untrained pirate (it takes much less than ten years to become a skilled veteran), this amounts to graduates, who usually serve as officers but are numerous enough not to, having the competence and experience of pirates twice their age, coupled with military discipline. The lack of real-life experience seems to be more than offset by the disproportionate rigorous training.

* CrapsackWorld: First of all, there's the flood, which would've decreased the amount of habitual land mass and useable resources. Pirates are clearly the dominate force in the mortal realm, there isn't even a formal Navy to fight back the pirates, only privately hired security forces. And vampires like Lola Lockwood can hunt down any mortals they want for centuries without anyone to stop them. Oh, and just about every civilian town that is shown is described as a "dead-end town", like Crescent Moon Bay. And most donors decided to give their blood to Vampires out of destitution.
