Lost Heaven is located in the American Midwest, riddled with corruption and home to powerful crime bosses who built their empires off the back of Prohibition. It is a bustling metropolis with many features expected in a large city such as public transport, busy streets, skyscrapers, hotels, and a busy shipping port. Due to the Great Depression the city's prosperity has been hit hard, and the lack of money has taken its toll on the citizens. Corruption has seeped into every part of society as Don Salieri and Don Morello buy out judges, politicians, business owners and police officers. Poverty is rampant across the city and many have nothing to their name.
Lost Heaven is divided into three sections: the West side, the Central side and the East Side, with each one separated by the West River. Outside the city is the countryside, which features a motel, airport, dam, and more.
