The Pacific is an ocean off of the west coast of the United States.

Background

Before the war, one of the last known pockets of oil was discovered 175 miles off the coast of California. The United States successfully constructed an oil rig to procure the resource.[1] The nuclear reactor in the platform created significant levels of pollution in the surrounding ocean water, carried along with the currents, causing devastating ecological damage to the coast of Mexico.[2] The state of Hawaii is located in the mid-Pacific.[3]

Notes

  • President Kimball mentions the ocean in his Hoover Dam speech, noting that "we are the heirs of that civilization, torchbearers eastward of the Pacific, into the darkness of this wasted land"[4] and that "today, you are the waves of the Pacific, pushing ever eastward. You are the sequoias rising from the Sierra Nevadas, defiant and enduring."[5]
  • Skinner references "slavish socialists" as being across the Pacific.[6]
  • On the Fallout and Fallout 2 world maps, the water is brown along the coast but clears up farther away from land.[7]

Appearances

The Pacific Ocean appears in Fallout and Fallout 2, and is mentioned in Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas, Fallout 4, and in Fallout 76.

  4. President Kimball: "We must always remember that wherever Californians stand, we carry our principles with us: equal respect, representation, and protection under the laws of a just republic. This was the same fire that burned in the heart of the Old World that preceded us. We are the heirs of that civilization, torchbearers eastward of the Pacific, into the darkness of this wasted land."

  6. Vault Dweller: "[Perception] The world's over. What use is money? Why not just give me a robot?"
    Skinner: "... you make a fair point. But I can't just GIVE you a frame. That'd make us no better than those slavish socialists across the Pacific. But I could see providing you a discount."
