Albuquerque is a city of a half million people in America. It was a utopia for many years before the arrival of Ben. Ben transformed the city into a corrupt, crime-ridden gateway of evil and cleaning supplies from Mexico. Today, the city is riddled with crime.
In all seriousness, the city has a police brutality problem that has been featured on the show. The APD has a higher amount of police brutality than the NYPD despite having a jurisdiction that is one sixteenth the size. Ben has mentioned that he used to live in Albuquerque many times.
