The Midwest Commonwealth

The Great Midwest Commonwealth or Midwest Commonwealth[1] was one of the thirteen commonwealths of the pre-War United States of America. Created in 1969,[2] it was comprised of the former states of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana and Michigan.

Former Illinois

It seems that the Illinois Wasteland was conquered by stranded Brotherhood of Steel members known as the Midwestern Brotherhood, although the exact amount of territory that they own is unknown. They led a harsh rule on the state. Enclave outposts are also said to be located in the boundaries of Chicago.

Former Minnesota
