** Regarding Australia (and as an Australian) I think it's fair to say we probably would have been wiped out one way or the other. We're a major resource exporter including natural gas, coal and uranium. I'd guess that either we'd have been conquered for our natural resources or we'd have allied with the US in exchange for letting them use us as a nuclear missile base (giving the US a better base to strike out against Asia). Either way, we'd be targeted (nuclear sites first, then cities). There would certainly be places where the bombs didn't fall but as mentioned above the nuclear fallout and climate changes would still be significant.

** The time period it is stuck in is late 1980s - early 1990s, the time when the real USSR was a crumbling VestigialEmpire. The computers are Mikroshas, Korvets and Robotrons (roughly ZX Spectrum and Amiga in terms of advancedness), the city architecture is very similar to one in ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life 2}}'' except more ruined, the country architecture is all wooden log houses, all rusted cars are [[TheAllegedCar VAZ and Volgas with fusion cell-powered motors]] and even these are not nearly as plentiful as in USA (the automobile revolution only happened in UsefulNotes/TheNewRussia), the clutter found in ruins is all from [[http://savok.name/160-veshhi-sssr.html these photos]]. The local counterpart to GNR plays Music/VladimirVysotsky, Music/ViktorTsoi, Music/NautilusPompilius and Mashina Vremeni, the local counterpart to the Enclave Radio plays [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91kdwxFsthI The Union Indestructible]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5OEpB0q3ef8 Slavyanka's Farewell]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gtA4j7z1izg VDV March]] and so on.

Listen to the preacher in Rivet City go through his whole sermon on Sundays. You have done ''at least'' as much good, if not way more, than Saint Monica if you have "Very Good" karma status (heck, the picture in the PC version is Vault Boy as ''JesusChrist''). So, the citizens of the Capital Wasteland, informed of your deeds by Three Dog, decided to christen you "Saint [[HelloInsertNameHere {Name}]]".

[[WMG: The protagonists of all the main games are all related.]]
It's already canon that the Chosen One's grandfather is the Vault Dweller, and that he has illegitimate son with one of the Bishop women in New Reno. Since not much is known about him after the events of Fallout 2, it's possible that he managed to settle down and have a kid sometime after the game, like his friend Cassidy. And that child of his grew up to become a courier for the Mojave Express, who ends up saving the Wasteland, like his dear old dad and great-grandpa before him.

To tie the East Coast protagonists to the West, there's the Sole Survivor and their spouse, who could have been everyone's common ancestor. Nate and/or Nora could have had relatives in California who ended up in Vault 13, whose descendant became the lucky Vault Dweller tasked to find the water chip. As for the Lone Wanderer, their ancestor could be another relative of Nate and/or Nora's, who managed to survive the bombs and kept the bloodline running for two hundred years. One of their descendants became a scientist in the Capital Wasteland, who had a child with another scientist. Said child was taken to Vault 101, left the vault at 19 to find their missing dad, and ended up earning the nickname "Lone Wanderer" during their adventures in the wastes.

[[WMG: Fallout and Asimov's Foundation novels are in the same universe]]
House won in New Vegas, he built his starships, and humanity spread across the galaxy. Hundreds or thousands of years later, the radioactivity of Earth is slowly diminishing but still present, and the origins of the human race have been forgotten.

* '''Black Hills, South Dakota''', just for the chance for us to see what's become of Mt. Rushmore. My guess is that the neighboring settlers have made the presidents into a sort of KingInTheMountain legend, destined to someday set the world aright again.

*** However, there are two things in the way of considering M2033 part of the Fallout universe as is. First is obvious: the date. In that universe, nuclear war happened around 2013. Second, the pre-war civilization in that universe is very obviously [[TheNewRussia the Federal regime]], not Soviet, and the communist faction are quack politicos that haven't read their Marx, not remnants of lawful authority.

[[Felines are well alive in Fallout]]
Mst domestic cats are thought to be extinct in Fallout 1 and New Vegas, showing up in 4 first canonically. However, felines are ambush predators and well capable to survival, maybe a bit more than domestic dogs. Who to say that there are no radcats in the wilderness, or more wild cats roaming the wastes? Mutated and not super predators, but near the top of most food chains where humanity or large predators aren't too common.
