** Once the Cuban expedition to Angola, sent before Doomsday, returned to what was left of the country, it didn't take long before Castro's successors regained control over the lawless parts of the island and truly began reconstruction. Warbands and bandits proved to be no match against a professional, veteran military.

* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: Many nations developed a military tradition after Doomsday, but none more than the Republic of Virginia. Voting rights can only be obtained by serving two tours of duty. And civil servants, including ''postal workers'' wear uniforms on the job.

Initially, a lawless vacuum filled much of the main island as the Communist government and whatever Cuban citizens they could save fled to Isla de Juventud. Then the Cuban military expedition sent to Angola prior to Doomsday returned to relieve what was left of their nation. [[CurbStompBattle There's no contest.]]

** The conflicts in Angola and Nicaragua not only endured after Doomsday but somehow got ''worse'' than in OTL. The former resulting in a still-divided country and the latter dragging neighboring Costa Rica into the mess.

* DirtyCoward: Some of the American Survivor-Nations consider the Exiles' escape to Australia as this. Similarly, there are those in the former United Kingdom who view New Britain as being forged by people who left them all to die.

** The USA is an interesting case in that unlike the USSR, it virtually collapsed entirely save for the American Exiles in Hawaii (later on moving to Australia) and Puerto Rico. On the other hand, a group of survivor communities in the Midwest forged a "Provisional United States" by the early 1990s, dropping the "Provisional" bit upon finding out that there really ''was'' no US Government anymore, the remnants having been integrated into Australian society.

There's also an Atlantic remnant based in the former US Virgin Islands, founded by elements of the US Military that refused to go to Australia.

* ApocalypticLog: The AP wire reports from various US bureaus describe evacuation orders from local officials, mass panic as word of the incoming Soviet attack gets out, and flashes and "mighty" explosions as nearby targets are destroyed [[LostInTransmission (with some reports cut short in mid-word)]]. Whoever's running the Cincinnati bureau [[DyingCurse rages against the parties responsible for the war]], while Charlotte [[ItHasBeenAnHonor says it's been a privilege reporting the news]] and hopes God is with the survivors. The last report is from Dallas (which makes sense since it's one of the major US cities farthest from the Soviet Union), reporting the destruction of Fort Worth before it, too, is cut off.
