"Madripoor could give New York a run for its money."
"They know how to party."
"With that bounty on your head, the longer you're in Madripoor, the less likely you're ever leaving."
Sam Wilson, Baron Zemo and Sharon Carter[src]

Madripoor is an insular city-state located in the Indonesian Archipelago in Southeast Asia.

History

Early Development

"Madripoor? You talk about it like it's Skull Island."
"It's an island nation in the Indonesian archipelago. It was a pirate sanctuary back in the 1800s."
"It's kept its lawless ways."
Sam Wilson, Bucky Barnes and Baron Zemo[src]

Madripoor was established as a safehaven and sanctuary for pirates during the 19th century. As Madripoor continued to develop, the island nation had continued its lawless ways.[1]

Modern Madripoor

"Every kingdom needs its king. Let's just pray we stay under his radar."
"Do you know him?'
"Only by reputation. In Madripoor he is judge, jury, and executioner."
Baron Zemo and Sam Wilson[src]

Low Town

Sharon Carter moved to Madripoor, as the United States of America would have no jurisdiction there to extradite her. While there, she would become the ruler of Madripoor, becoming known as the Power Broker. The Zemo barony from Sokovia had connections in Madripoor; Helmut Zemo had ties to Selby, one of Madripoor's influential criminal figures, who owned the Brass Monkey Saloon. Dovich was a former mob enforcer for Madripoor's criminal underworld. Smiling Tiger was a notorious gangster that frequented Lowtown.[1]

By the 21st century, the city was divided amongst two districts, High Town and Low Town. [2]

High Town

"High Town's that way. Not a bad place if you want to visit."
Baron Zemo[src]

High Town is a wealthy and glamorous and indulgent metropolis with a lavish and active nightlife.

Low Town

The impoverished and crime-ridden Low Town became home to a sophisticated and powerful criminal underworld ruled by the Power Broker.

Buccaneer Bay

Madripoor was neighbored by Buccaneer Bay, which includes a seaport that operates as the grounds for the city's main port of foreign trade, handling the transportation of cargo and commerce.
