What city would make a good stand-in for Ankh Morpork?

I am thinking about running a PbP based on the City Watch in Terry Pratchett's Discworld books. They keep order and fight crime in a gritty and industrious urban environment. It reminds me a bit of Victorian London. I would like to fit it in to Golarion since people are already familiar with the different deities, cultures, etc. Is there a city that has a published source book that would make a good fit? I plan on allowing a lot of unusual races.

I have the Kaer Maga book (City of Strangers) but parts of it are a bit too dark and gruesome for me. I guess I could work with that and tone it down. But I'll take other ideas...

Absalom perhaps? Huge city, considers itself the center of the world, innumerable factions only tenuously held together.

Definitely Absalom.


Absalom was my first thought, but Katapesh was a very fast second; Katapesh has the pactmasters after all.

Hmmm, the pactmasters are interesting but Absalom sounds pretty good. Thanks.
