I think they should place the series in a Canadian city. It would work so well all the Canadian stereotypes would be shown through the pedestrians and one of your contacts could be a French-Canadan rioter

Canadian stereotypes are funny but few exist in comparison to the number of American stereotypes, besides that's what R* does best. Satires of stereotypes and societal commentary, namely American satire.
I could see a GTA in New Orleans. A city that's gone through some sort of natural disaster and is struggling to rebuild.
Your character could be a criminal trying to rebuild his life after a loss due to the disaster (death of a spouse or even a child), but gets caught up in the crooked dealings around the city. Shady real estate agents trying to buy up the land dirt cheap, crooked politicians trying to hide the fact that they embezzelled the money that was supposed to go to the levees, & low-level mob guys from Liberty City trying to make a name for themselves in a new city could all be involved.
No reason to get into a fight, jail is full of people who were out looking for trouble and cemeteries are full of people who found trouble.
What about IRAQ. That would change the game quite a bit. Military personal. Doesn't have to be a American, he could be Muslim. LOL. Yea, I could see that going over really well. It would raise a lot of attention and start a new crowd of anti-grand theft auto. It doesn't need to be offensive, just perhaps the life of a Muslim and his mix of American friend soldiers wanting to start there own way to make money and a living like in all the other GTA's.
