San Raton is a fictional city or country located somewhere in close proximity of the United States of America. San Raton was a port of call for the Princess Louise, a cruise ship owned and operated by Lucky Harrison.
Jaime Sommers and Oscar Goldman staged an incident with the assistance of the San Raton police that gave Jaime a plausible reason to stowaway aboard the Princess Louise. This was Jaime's cover while she investigated the disappearance of two missing energy cells. (BW: Assault on the Princess)
DeconstructedSan Raton is not under U.S. jurisdiction, otherwise Lucky Harrison would be arrested for desertion from the Navy.
San Raton appears to be on good terms with the U.S. government. Oscar Goldman was able to employ the assistance of the San Raton police in staging Jaime's "escape" aboard the Princess Louise. The police also transported Goldman to a U.S. Naval station in or near San Raton. Presumably, the police commissioner of San Raton would be able to verify Jaime's reason for fleeing the San Raton police.
San Raton is a Spanish-speaking region based on the language displayed on police cars, port signage, and cargo.
The San Raton police seem to be militarized. Lucky Harrison calls one of the officers "General." This could refer to the officer's rank or Lucky was using the term facetiously.
According to a statement that Jaime Sommers makes to Lucky Harrison, it is likely that San Raton is located in South America:
- Lucky: You're good. No, no... you're better than good. Listen, I can always use a new dealer here. What about it? I can always use one that's... distracting. You interested? How 'bout it, Miss Windsor?
Jaime: Well, it beats dog-paddling back to South America, Mister Harrison.
