** While I mostly agree with you, that last sentence bugs me. Ahem, two words. [[GuardiansOfTheGalaxy Rocket Raccoon]].

** Probably the fact that war and the militaristic culture was never really culturally rejected by Fallout universe Americans. While Hippies and the Peace movement did exist in the FO universe, its clear that they never got anywhere near the traction it did in real life and it is implied that Nixon was never impeached. This led to the embrace of traditional American authoritarian values with nothing to question them, and thus - cultural stagnation.

** The nuclear tech miniaturization probably did not reach everyone like it did the United States. China invaded Anchorage because it needed the oil, and the U.S. could counter-invade China and push them back because of the fusion batteries fitting inside a man-sized tank, their mass-production to fit battalions. If the Chinese had similar nuclear miniaturization, which the Stealth Armor could support, it was apparently too costly for them to manufacture at the level the U.S. could. Even after the Great War, Fission Batteries are a widespread and essential item in the Wasteland.

[[folder:Who needs oil?]]
* I'm sure there's an offical explanation somewhere, but why did anyone still need an abundance of oil after the nuclear energy boom? Sure, you still need oil for plastic, and probably some other minor things, but from what we see, everything from cars, to robots, to all city power grids were nuclear powered (how else are they working after hundreds of years?). Yet the Great War and by extension, everything seen in the franchise happened because everyone was fighting over oil. The wiki states that it was needed to power the country's ever expanding economy, especially because in this universe, microtechnology never became widespread, but no real explanation is given.

*** Besides, Caesar has [[spoiler: a fatal brain tumor]], [[FridgeBrilliance which could explain why his Intelligence and Charisma are so low in terms of gameplay]].

** Can't remember where I read that one, but I'm pretty sure that culturally wise, the pre-war future of USA was supposed to represent what people back in the 50s thought the world would look like. Of course, everyone gets to think about technology when they think of the future, and not culture [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rpq5ZmANp0k]]. Just as today, when we hear "the future", we imagine stuff like putting our hands through screens of our computers and flying cars, and we don't think that we might as well bring goth net shirts back into being fashionable or create a new genre of music that focuses on sampling dial-up sounds.

* I get that technology stagnated due to the lack of the transistor, but what caused culture to become stagnated and stuck in the 50s? I can't find an answer in the wikia.
