The Southeast Commonwealth was one of the thirteen commonwealths of the pre-War United States.


Created in 1969, it was comprised of the former states of Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina.[1] The commonwealth bordered the Columbia Commonwealth, the East Central Commonwealth, and the Gulf Commonwealth.

Former North CarolinaEdit

Gametitle-FO3 Kitty Hawk, North Carolina is mentioned as the location of the debut flight of the Wright Flyer, created by Orville and Wilbur Wright. The Wright Flyer was the first controlled and powered aircraft, successfully staying aloft for 12 seconds on December 17, 1903. A plaque at the Museum of Technology notes that this was the first sustained flight of its kind in human history.[2]

Former South CarolinaEdit

Gametitle-FO3 OA The city of Charlotte was home to the manufacturing facility of Lee Rapid Pharmaceuticals, as the town's name can be seen on the gauges of the health dispensers found throughout the Anchorage Reclamation simulation.

Gametitle-FNV LR Mullins, South Carolina is where the MREs found in the Divide were originally manufactured, and is listed on the packaging.

Former GeorgiaEdit

Gametitle-FO4 A signed baseball card found in the Commonwealth features Matt Murtagh, the star pitcher of a Boston baseball team, who was from Atlanta.[3]
