In the DLC for Fallout 3, Mothership Zeta, you can listen to audio recordings of alien prisoners. One of these recordings is an American military officer telling the aliens the troop strength of America, followed by him struggling not to tell the aliens the codes for launching ICBMs. The recording cuts off while he is screaming "Get out of my head!" I propose that the aliens got the codes, and since they are [[AliensAreBastards dicks]](vast amounts of evidence supports the dick theory), they started nuclear war for lulz.

[[WMG: Vault 0 really was the nucleus of the vaults, but its true purpose was to monitor the Vault Experiments while simultaneously experimenting with neuro-computer technology.]] Most of the dwellers inside Vault 0 consisted of Vault-Tec personnel who were to oversee the Vault Experiments. Those who weren't (politicians, artists, etc.) had their brains extracted and hooked up to the Calculator's neuro-network. [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Unfortunately for Vault-Tec, the experiment went horribly wrong and the Calculator either killed or lobotomized everyone inside Vault 0.]]

[[WMG: State of certain cities and countries]] * ''New York:'' A giant crater. * ''Chicago:'' Ruled by the remnants of the enclave scout base that was built there. Largely similar to the ruins of boston. * ''Florida:'' An Overgrown Swampland, with scattered ruins of cities that have been completely enveloped by the swamplands. * ''Alaska:'' Unscathed by the devastation, the few vaults failed miserably and the environment is unsuited for human habitation. * ''Mexico:'' Annexed by the winner of the Mojave war. * ''Ontario:'' Frozen over almost entirely, with well heated and insulated settlements. The Ruling factions are a pre-war militia, which survived the great war, a large group of FEV mutants who were experimented on prior to the war which demonstrate greater intelligence than the East Coast strain and an Enclave group that has been separated from the oil rig and has evolved divergently into a less extreme governing body called "The New American Confederacy". * ''Quebec:'' Be Careful what you wish for eh? The Independent Quebec Collapsed under pressure from the Super Mutants, Weather and the New American Confederacy. * ''Newfoundland:" A Viking Culture has evolved, primarily raiding, fishing and trading. Despite it's savagery, there are almost no raiders and the culture has remained stable for a century. * ''Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan:'' Frozen Wastes, that lacked any influential factions to build up a civilization. The result is scattered raider gangs and rough frontier towns. * ''The Canadian Territories:'' COLD. COLD. COLD. COLD. COLD. * ''British Columbia:'' Attempts to replicate the success of the NCR and Newfoundlandic Viking Fleet resulted in Mad Max with boats. * ''Europe:'' The Glowing Sea. For Miles. And Miles. And Miles. And Miles. And Miles. * ''Australia:'' A variety of scrubland and quagmires, full of Bunyip (Giant Wombat), Devil Rats (Tasmanian Devils), DropBears (Koala), Radsharks (Bull Sharks) Funnel Trappers (Funnelweb Spiders), Pakkieola (Giant Crocs) and the Demonslange (Tiger Snake). The Few communities live in the ruins of urban cities, as the Quagmire is relatively swarmed with deadly wildlife. It is ruled by an NCR like faction, the Australian Protectorate Militia. * ''Africa:'' Due to immense fallout from both wars, there is little human life. * ''South America:'' Hellish. Organized Mirelurk Hives overrun small settlements and the Stonemen Raiders, who wipe towns without leaving any survivors. What few settlements exist can vanish in a day, consumed by the jungle. Only settlements in ruined cities like Manuaus, now under a lawless dictatorship, that avoided the worst are defensible from the Stonemen and the Mirelurks. * ''Russia:'' Caught in the crossfire of the great war, russia is akin to america and canada, except with more scattered populations * ''China:'' The Chinese is largely irradiated, but isolated settlements have evolved in the southern ruins and the mountains, connected by the New Chinese Air Trading Corp. * ''Japan:'' The Fallout wiped out everyone who wasn't a ghoul. The lack of vaults meant the japan was stuck with just it's ghoul population. [[WMG: The AVRO Arrow wasn't cancelled in the fallout timeline]] [[WMG: A DLC will introduce alive mutant dolphins to the oceans]]

* '''Africa and South America''' were probably plundered empty even before the Resource wars in europe and the middle east, because why risk nuclear war if you can still plunder people without nukes? South America in particular has a lot of oil, as do several countries in Africa. However, because they were already plundered empty by the time the real heavy fighting began, they might not have seen ''too'' much nuking. Smaller-scale wars between the various nations over the last remaining scraps of resources, followed by civil wars, starvation and anarchy seem likely, making the current situation similar to Europe and the Middle-East (just slightly less radio-active)

* '''Oceania''' is probably doing the best out the various continents. Resource shortages would have led to civil wars, and the larger islands (Java, Sumatra, Australia, New Guinea, etc) might have seen foreign intervention to secure resources or tactical locations, which could have in turn led to being nuked during the Great War. However, there's a ''lot'' of tiny islands out there, distant enough to not suffer nuclear explosions, and small enough to not be worth conquering for resources. The biggest problem would be radiated or FEV monstrosities from the US and chinese coasts roaming the seas, but those are pretty survivable. This is really the only place (besides possibly the Soviet-Union) where remnants of pre-war governments could still be in place.

* The Soviet Union is the big question mark. It seems to have survived the Europe/Middle-eastern conflict just fine, meaning it's unlikely to have faced much trouble during the Resource Wars afterwards. For any nation in Europe or the Middle east to attack the Union after that would have been suicide, and the Union's vast reserves of resources means it would have little reason to attack other countries. That leaves the question: Was the Soviet Union targeted during the Great War? Was the US afraid that they would join with China's attack, and shoot first? Was China afraid that the Soviets were eyeing their resources, and target them too? If neither happened, it's entirely possible that the Union survived the Great War, though it would still be troubled by fallout blowing in from the east and south. If either of the nations targeted the Soviets, its western cities, eastern sea-board and transcaucasia are likely to look much like the radiated wastelands of North America and China, though there might still be some good arable land in the relatively underdeveloped center.

[[WMG: More guesses at the state of the rest of the world]] *'''China''' is probably even worse off than the US. Given the US campaigns mentioned, it's likely that they'd already lost quite a bit of land, meaning it might have lost part of its nuclear arsenal. The presence of large numbers of US soldiers on China's soil would make it possible that some of them survived, though probably mostly as ghouls (With the disturbing possibility of ghouls in power armor). We know that FEV was originally developed for deployment against China, and there might have been some quantities present for testing, but probably not nearly as much, meaning less horrible mutants. Given the resource wars and the mention of the chinese army in Mongolia, it's likely that China took over the surrounding countries much like the US did, and much of '''east and south-east asia''' would have likely suffered the same fate as china. Depending on whether or not '''India and Pakistan''' had nukes, they might have avoided this fate, but in that case they probably nuked each other during the Resource Wars. *'''Oceania''' is probably doing the best out the various continents. Resource shortages would have led to civil wars, and the larger islands (Java, Sumatra, Australia, New Guinea, etc) might have seen foreign intervention to secure resources or tactical locations, which could have in turn led to being nuked during the Great War.

The fact that they actually had a nuclear exchange with one another without leading to Mutual Destruction makes it likely that neither side actually had all that many nukes to begin with, so no radioactive wasteland, but there could still be a variety of mutated beasties roaming around. All the big cities would have probably still been hit, but plenty of survivors in the rest of the various countries to wage war for the remaining scraps of resources. Like with Africa and south-america, this would probably have been followed by civil wars, starvation and anarchy. New states are likely to have arisen in the remaining arable areas (which there would be more of than in the states, due to less nuclear fire), but the limited resources means that these probably remain hostile to one another. *The Soviet Union is the big question mark.
