A state was a pre-War geographic territory with established borders within the United States.


Background

There were 50 states within the country before the war.[1] The states were created as a result of thirteen British colonies declaring independence in 1776.[2] The ensuing American Revolutionary War secured the split, and the group of states adopted a constitution, bringing the states into a single republic.[2]

These distinctions are still mentioned in character dialogue, appear in reading materials, on posters, and are found throughout the wastelands on signs, placards, and monuments. Mentions of states by name from both pre- and post-War within Fallout games are listed below alphabetically.

  16. 16.0 16.1 Courier: "Do you ever trade with the NCR?"
    Dale Barton: "Between having to hire protection and getting slapped with taxes, it's more profitable to stick to Arizona and New Mexico. But, I do cross the river from time to time when an opportunity comes along."
    (Dale Barton's dialogue)
  17. 17.0 17.1 17.2 17.3 The Courier: "And since forming the Legion, all you've done is conquer other tribes?"
    Caesar: "That's right. Decades of warfare, absorbing lesser tribes, gathering power. Forging the dross into a vast, razor-sharp scythe. My Legion's expansion has never ceased. Much of the Utah and Colorado, and all of Arizona and New Mexico, are mine. We have cities of our own, but nothing compared to Vegas. Finally, my Legion will have its Rome."
    (Caesar's dialogue)
  18. Caesar: "Once, he was the greatest warrior of the Hidebarks, a tribe of the Arizona. Maniacal in battle. Sometimes he'd ambush Legion patrols by himself."
    (Caesar's dialogue)
  19. 19.0 19.1 19.2 The Courier: "I haven't been through Utah recently - what's the situation like?"
    Jed Masterson: "Well, it ain't good, I'll tell you that. It's not like the Mojave or the NCR - hell, even Arizona under Caesar is safer. You got raiders all over the damn place, tribes of degenerates that'll eat you as soon as look at you, regional warlords... the works. Not too many decent places to stop and trade. New Canaan's one of the only ones left I know about."
    (Jed Masterson's dialogue)
  20. Courier: "How do you feel about Caesar's Legion?"
    Raul Tejada: "I don't really have a problem with them. People around here tend to see them as invading marauders planning to burn and pillage the countryside. But I've been to Arizona, boss. Before the Legion, it was a nasty place, so thick with raiders, you couldn't trade with a town two miles up the road. Caesar's laws aren't nice, and their actions aren't always pretty. But then, neither am I, but you keep me around."
    (Raul Tejada's dialogue)
  21. Fallout: New Vegas endings: "Merciless in their assault on the NCR, the Remnants struck fear into the hearts of even the centurions at Hoover Dam. Caesar's heirs aggressively pursued the Remnants into Arizona, losing hundreds of legionaries in the process and gaining nothing in return."
  22. Courier: "Where did you get the gun, anyway?"
    Lucius: "The trader, Dale Barton, salvaged it from a military base in Arizona. Yuma, I believe."
    (Lucius' dialogue)
  23. The Courier: "So what did you do?"
    Raul Tejada: "I took off that old vaquero outfit and put on a Petro-Chico jumpsuit. The name tag said "Miguel," so I started using the name myself. Eventually, I made it to Arizona... but that's another story, boss."
    (Raul Tejada's dialogue)
  24. The Courier: "What happened with her?"
    Raul Tejada: "This was a long time ago. Before Caesar's Legion pacified Arizona and brought the raider tribes to heel. A tribe came into Tuscon one day - more a gang, really. Dirty Dave and his six brothers. They were looking for bullets, and I sold some to them. I figured if I did that, they'd leave town before they tore it up too much."

    Arcade Gannon: "A fair point, but from the perspective of someone on the east side of Arizona, the man is clearly out of his mind."
    (Arcade Gannon's dialogue)
  28. Courier: "Why are the rangers here?"
    Hanlon: "There's a lot of answers to that question, but it started with the Ranger Unification Treaty. We weren't always the only show in town. Nevada had its own posse, the Desert Rangers. They fought Caesar even farther east, out in Arizona. Didn't go well for them. Years back, we met with the Desert Rangers at Mojave Outpost and agreed to help them against Caesar if they would join the NCR."
    (Hanlon's dialogue)
  29. The Courier: "Were you always with the New Canaanites?"
    Joshua Graham: "I was born in Ogden, what people came to call New Canaan. Things were more peaceful when I was growing up. When I was a young man, I went out into the world to do missionary work as all New Canaanites do. I traveled along the Long 15 and followed 89 south into Arizona."
    (Joshua Graham's dialogue)
  30. Joshua Graham: "No doubt this will be good for the Mojave. I can only hope Arizona and the tribes don't suffer as the Legion falls apart around them."
    (Joshua Graham's dialogue)
  31. The Chosen One: "Yeah, okay. How do I find them?"

I was pressured into posting young Henry as the manager of the New Vegas branch. As you can see, he wasn't exactly cut out for the job. He was much more interested in gambling and prostitutes, and because of his family, I can't simply fire him. Henry needs to be convinced to quit, one way or another.

    Jas Wilkins: "Born and raised. Things back in California are better than they've ever been, according to my grandpa. The Raiders are mostly gone now and it's easy enough to get a job at one of the mills or farms. But now there's taxes and laws and other things. The NCR keeps things safe and orderly, but it's all very boring. So, I came out east towards the frontier."

    Ringo: "My caravan was on the return trip from California and heading back up to the company branch in New Vegas when we got jumped. Not even a "drop your weapons and hands up" before the bullets started flying. We put up a good fight, but there was too many of them. I took a few of the bandits down before I ran, so I figure their friends are out for revenge."
    (Ringo's dialogue)
  56. Courier: "Tell me more about the Crimson Caravan Company."
    Ringo: "It's been in business for a very long time, and is probably the biggest trading outfit in California. There's a branch up in New Vegas, but it hasn't been doing so well. Word is that the big boss herself, Alice McLafferty, is coming in to fix things."

    Ulysses: "Lanius... the 'Butcher.' Monster, Terror of the East. Not even his slaves have seen his face - struck them blind so they can't. Wears a mask, don't even know if it's the same man. He put Colorado to the sword, broke the Hangdogs by throwing their hounds upon the flames, so they might burn forever in the afterlife."

  80. John Henry Eden: "When I was a child, growing up in rural Kentucky, I had the best friend a boy could hope for -- my dear old dog, Honey. Oh, the adventures we had! From Knob Creek to Hodgenville we roamed, carefree and courageous, irresponsible and completely inseparable. It was, for a little boy, the perfect existence. So let me ask you, America. How many of your children can say the same? How many of this nation's youth are truly happy, truly carefree? We both know the answer, don't we? None. America's children live a terrifying, meaningless existence. There is no hope. No happiness. That changes! Right here! Right now! From this moment onward, the children of this great nation are its highest priority! The Enclave will restore every American school, reinstate every youth program, and offer counseling and financial assistance to any family in need. We will match up the destitute, orphaned children of the Capital Wasteland with qualified, eligible adults. We will rebuild the American family, as it was, as it was meant to be! The values of our past... shall be the foundation of our future."

Ended up finding some stuff the local Brotherhood left behind. That led me to Fort Defiance. Scary place. I had to move quick, but I'd found some logs and records. Frankly, I got a little obsessed. It was like the Round Table and Dad's Navy stories, all together! And now they're coming back!"

I am referring, of course, to our great national pastime - baseball. Or so it had been. That's right, America. Before we were devastated by atomic war, each state had its OWN professional baseball team. Imagine, a perfect, cloudless day. The sun is warm, welcoming. And on the horizon, they appear, like knights of yore, armed with bats of ash and hickory. Their name? The Capital Congressmen. Their purpose? To make you, dear America, revel in the joy of sport and sunshine. If only for an afternoon. Now ask yourself this. What if the Capital Congressmen could live again? What if they could compete with baseball teams, from Pennsylvania, or Maryland? Put your faith in John Henry Eden, great America, and baseball will live again! Comfort, recreation, healthy competition - all will live again! This country WILL live again!"
    (John Henry Eden's dialogue)

  98. The Lone Wanderer: "What's the history behind the document?"
    Abraham Washington: "On July the 4th in 1776, a group calling themselves the Second Judgmental Congress got together at Fort McHarry in Maryland. After a ceremony which ended with Paul Revere singing the famous battle hymn known as the National Anthem, the document was signed. From there, it was sent to England by plane presumably and presented to King George himself. Thus began the Evolutionary War."

  99. Lone Wanderer: "So, who is this brain thing, anyway?"
    Desmond Lockheart: "HIM! I should have known. My old rival... so close to his family home. Only he would be so stupid. He was once a man - Professor Calvert. The Calverts owned half of Maryland, back when there was a Maryland to own. Members of the Calvert family were influential all over the world. They practically owned a deed to the US Government. In their best days, there were no less than three Calvert family senators, seven members of the house, and two governors. They even had a top candidate for president, until that scandal with the dog forced him to drop out of the race. I was particularly proud of that one."

  100. Beckett: "Listen to me, Frankie. Do you remember when we were kids and we were playing near that bombed-out factory in Maryland? Then those rabid dogs jumped out and surprised us? We ran and ran, but then I fell into that ditch and twisted my leg like a dumbass. Right? I told you to run, but what did you say to me, man? Try and remember."
    Frankie Beckett: "No, Beckett... I... those moments died when Frankie died. Only a fool dwells in the past. The Blood Eagles are our future!"
    Beckett: "No. There's no Claw, there's no Blood Eagles. There's just me and you right now. So shut up and listen! After the dogs were gone and you reached into the ditch to help me out. What. Did. You. Say? Tell me! Goddamn it, Frankie, tell me!"
    Frankie Beckett: "I... I said... I... we were brothers... and we'd never walk away from... from each other, no matter how bad... no matter... how..."
    Beckett: "...no matter how bad things became. Yeah. That's exactly right. You fought off those dogs with nothing but a goddamn broken baseball bat. It almost killed you, man. You... you saved me. You were so cut up from the fight, I thought I was going to lose you, Frankie."
    Frankie Beckett: "I remember... you stole those meds for me to fight off the rabies. You kept watch over me for weeks... I... why can't I see it clearly? The hell... happened to me, Beckett? God, this hurts... it hurts so much..."
    Beckett: "I know it hurts, man. I know it does. But whatever it takes, we'll get through this together. We're family and I love you, Frankie. Always have, always will."

I can say that we were both lucky that NCR's supply lines and land routes north of Mojave Outpost were destroyed before the Battle of Hoover Dam. Something bad happened near Death Valley, at a place called the Divide. NCR couldn't cut across anymore and it slowed down their reinforcements. Terrible storms ripped entire companies apart before they even got to Nevada soil. The aftermath of Hoover Dam could have been even worse for Caesar."

    Primm Slim: "Yahoo! I ain't had a chance to tell their tale in a mess of years. First things first: any bosh you've heard about Vikki and Vance being copycats ain't nothing but ill-tempered slander. Fact is, they begun their crime spree two days before Bonnie and Clyde robbed their first bank - so who was copying who? Now true, Vikki and Vance didn't exactly cut a wide swath of murder and bank robbery across the central U.S., like Bonnie and Clyde did. It was more like a narrow swath of shoplifting, check-cashing fraud, and gas pump driveoffs - but crime is crime! They drove reckless, too. Having lived by the gun - well, Vance owned one, anyway - it was only fitting that the duo of desperados would die by the gun. Perhaps it was fate itself that accidentally drove them into a crossfire between police and a gang of bank robbers in Plano, Texas. Or maybe they just didn't notice until it was too late. It's been said that Vikki would have tried to cash a bad check in that bank, had she lived. We'll never know for sure. All we know is that the crossfire tore the car and both occupants to pieces, and the police issued an official apology. You can put your eyes on the genuine Death Car just over yonder, and there's Vance's machine gun in the case next to it!"

The wilderness was harsh, and the first winter claimed over half the tribe. When spring came, the survivors parted ways in small bands. And so the White Legs died a quiet, ignominious death."
