Equal parts corrupt politician and gangster (and equally comfortable in either role), Nucky Thompson is capitalizing on the opportunities presented by Prohibition. The shrewd and charming former Treasurer of Atlantic City is a consummate glad-hander and back-room dealer who also maintains strict control of the illegal activities running rampant in "The World's Playground." He is married to Margaret Schroeder, a calculating decision borne out of necessity.
