Okay, so here's something I've been wondering since the second book...I get that the vampire world is centered in Caldwell, since The Brotherhood, The Glymera, and The King and Queen all live there. I guess it's their version of D.C., but what about the rest of the world?? Are all the vampires in Caldwell/New York? And if not, who protects the rest from the lessers?
Maybe Ward explains it somewhere and I just missed it, but this has been bugging me for awhile.

Great question - I doubt if the author has even thought about it. But don't talk about it too much, or else Ward will try to spin off a new crappy series set in every city in America! lol

Not all vampires live in New York. Some, like the Bastards, are still in the Old Country (ie: Europe). They're also spread out in the US. Bella (in Lover Awakened) once went to stay with relatives in the Carolinas and Ward has mentioned others as being 'out West'. My guess is the lessers congregate where they do because it's where the King and the Brothers are (and vice versa.)

Particularly for the lessers, it would not be cost effective for them to be sent out to areas with very small vampire populaces because it costs money to outfit them, provide places for them to live and work out of it, and with smaller numbers the vampires would be more easily able to blend and be harder to find. It would be a wild goose chase with little chance of a payoff for the Forelesser. And we all know that it's not good for the Forelesser if he can't show 'progress' to the Omega.

I think the vampire population cannot be that large. Pregnancies are very seldom, the females die often during birthing, the needing is extremely seldom. So far in the 10 books only a couple of females got pregnant. The Chosen have not produced any issues since we started reading the series. No'one had her first needing some 200 years ago.

Needings for vampire females, though, come along every 10 years UNLESS they're in Sanctuary (Scribe Virgin's realm).

in any case the vampire population is not a threat to human population as far as I can see.
P/S I asked my dental hygienist if any vampires visit her, and she said she has not seen any. But she would love to clean the fangs. Smile.

Vampires didn't start in New York, its just the place they chose. Since America is considered a newer country, and Europe, the 'old country', they began somewhere there. Money and power brought them to New York. Of course, there is the consideration that a few 'rogue' vampires, including women, could exist living among humans as either half breeds or full on vampires unable to find or locate their ancestors. Look at Beth, Wrath's shellan.

Also look at 'Son' in "The Story of Son" in that anthology. He has built a life with his wife and had kids and doesn't have a clue that there are others like himself.
