美利坚合众国(英文名:United States of America (USA)),通常被截断为 United States, US,或简称为美国(America),是一个战争前联邦共和国,并且是2077年資源戰爭结束时仅存的两个已知核超级大国之一。到那时,美国大约有4亿公民,[Non-canon 1] 随着政治体系越来越受到军企寡头集团的控制,他们可以使用、生物和化学武器、核聚变裂变科技、轨道设施以及它开创的其他先进技术。

在被称为大戰的灾难性核交战之后,美国不复存在。由军企寡头控制的美国政府在核交战开始前不久就放弃了这个国家,没有任何指挥和控制结构可以组织任何恢复工作,导致社会、经济和军事全面或接近崩溃。

幸存者继续自己组织起来,创建了新的部落、民族国家和其他知名组织。其中一个被称为英克雷,是一个散布在战后美国的准军事组织的集合,声称是美国的合法延续。

历史

21世纪中叶,美国积极确立全球大国地位,与中国竞争,随后成为世界第一超级大国。1961年5月5日美国航天局对太空技术的深入研究和资助促成了反抗7号的开创性飞行,当时卡尔·贝尔船长成为第一个已知的太空。然而,这一主张遭到了苏联中國的广泛争议。[1] 到这十年末,美国在太空竞赛中取得了胜利,因为处女座 II月球着陆器于1969年7月16日登录月球。勇敢 11 号任务成员,理查德·韦德船长、Mark Garris船长和Michael Hagen船长,成为已知的第一批在另一个天体表面行走的人类。[2] 紧随其后的是另一个任务,同年11月14日,英勇12号的处女座 III 号登陆月球。这面旗帜随后被取回,在科技博物馆展出。[3]太空探索计划在2034年结束,当时已知的最后一次载人登月任务发生了,随着全球局势的恶化,剩余的载人火箭,如Delta IX,被转化为军用弹药。[4]

資源戰爭

主页面: 資源戰爭

被称为資源戰爭的一系列冲突只是由于包括原油在内的关键资源日益短缺而采取的日益激进的外交政策的一个症状。一个例子出现在2051年,当时美国开始对墨西哥施加压力,以保护他们在那里的经济利益,主要是原油供应。[Non-canon 2] 美国军队占领了炼油厂和基础设施,以确保原油的流动不会停止。[Non-canon 3]然而,这些策略并没有避免危机,随着德克萨斯油田的枯竭,它们枯萎的外壳向美国公众展示了资源和能源危机的严重程度,在一部具有里程碑意义的2052电视纪录片中。 [Non-canon 4]不久之后,世界范围内不断上涨的油价使小国破产,导致欧洲联邦中东宣战; 美国也受到石油价格暴涨的严重影响,导致帝国主义的进一步侵略。[Non-canon 5]7月联合国的解散标志着走向核毁灭之路的开始。[5][6]

2053年,当新瘟疫病毒出现时,又遭受了一次打击。传染病的毒性及其传播速度导致了有史以来第一次全国隔离和美国边境的关闭。根据辐射圣经0中的时间表,数万人死亡。[Non-canon 6] 2055年,政府委托威斯科技开发治疗该病毒的方法。尽管目前还没有发现治愈方法,但对治愈方法的研究为后续的生化研究工作铺平了道路。[7]

中东的核交战,以及毁灭性的欧洲-中东战争和新瘟疫的死亡人数,导致联邦政府2054年启动安全屋计划,该计划创建了辐射庇护所,以保护一定比例的美国人口。核战争或致命的瘟疫。避难所科技公司赢得了合同,这个庞大的国防项目开始了。建筑技术的突破使得这些巨大的地堡得以快速建造,尽管避难所科技作为关键国防承包商的地位及其企业的机密性质导致了许多欺诈和管理不善的情况。[Non-canon 7][Non-game 1]

十年末,2059年,美国开始备战,全球局势持续恶化。安克雷奇前线已在阿拉斯加建立,以保护其石油储备免受外国入侵者的侵害。加拿大也开始感受到其日益敌对的邻国所施加的压力。 [Non-canon 8]作为结束这十年的特殊安慰奖,第一个人工智能诞生于美国实验室。受内存限制,它的扩展很快停止。 这一发现为美国各地实验室未来的研究铺平了道路。[Non-canon 9]

中美战争

主页面: 中美戰爭

核冷却剂价格; 战前,比当时有限的汽油更便宜的替代品。

2060年,全球可用的燃料储备用完。由于燃料变得太昂贵而不能浪费在汽车上,街道上的交通停止了。汽车行业拼命想办法解决问题,但电动汽车和早期的核融合汽车太少、太迟,无法帮助解决社会日益增长的需求。[Non-canon 10]欧洲联邦中东石油强国的崩溃进一步强调了燃料问题,因为据称油田已经枯竭。[Non-canon 11]

由于经济不断恶化,以及尽管加强了隔离措施,但新瘟疫仍在继续肆虐,全国各地的局势都在恶化。[Non-canon 12] 联邦政府试图通过阻止集会、助长反共情绪和鼓励报道颠覆分子的方式,利用日益增长的全国性偏执来控制局势。[8]甚至设立了警惕市民热线,允许歇斯底里的公民向政府报告邻居的任何可能被解释为支持共产主义的行为。[9]第三次红色恐慌是对中华人民共和国及其在美国领土上行动日益增长的敌意的回应。 [10]

已经开展的研究工作本可以完全缓解资源危机。为了提高机械化骑兵部队的机动性,军方2065年启动了一项旨在开发动力装甲的研究计划。[Non-canon 13] 研究、开发和原型设计为未来军事、建筑以及最重要的融合技术的进步铺平了道路。[Non-canon 14]其他领域的研究也在继续,包括更强大的核武器[Non-game 2]

然而,这些努力最终并不能阻止美国与中国发生冲突。由于共产主义国家的经济对化石燃料的依赖程度远高于美国,因此到2066年春天,中国发现自己处于崩溃的边缘,油田最终全球枯竭。由于美国不愿出口自己的原油储备,中国在谈判中变得更加激进。[Non-canon 15] 2074年6月,美国总统宣布最后一次已知的石油供应将完全由美国使用并仅供美国使用,美国甚至不会考虑向外国出售或交易任何石油。[11]为世界危机雪上加霜的是,为动力装甲项目开发的第一个粗制核融合电池于2066年夏天向美国公众展示。[Non-canon 16][Non-canon 17]无奈之下,中国入侵阿拉斯加以夺取其石油储备。 这一大胆的军事行动开始了中美战争,这是美国已知的最后一场战争。[12][Non-canon 18]这场战争也无意中引发了逐渐吞并加拿大,因为美国实际上迫使其邻国授予美国军队通行权。[Non-canon 19]在前线,T-45动力装甲的部署有助于防止中国坦克和步兵占领阿拉斯加。然而,局势迅速恶化为僵局,双方都无法打破局面,迫使敌方和谈。[Non-canon 20]

战争消耗了越来越多的资源、物资和人力,使陷入困境的美国经济更加紧张。为了抵消这一点,美国军方已经开始自由地开发加拿大的资源。 渥太华对这种公然入侵的抗议被忽视了,因为加拿大最终成为美国的领土。[Non-canon 21] 骚乱和抗议最终导致2072年企图破坏一条石油管道。美国军方以此事件为借口,直接入侵加拿大并开始吞并。[12][Non-canon 22] 在国内方面,中国积极使用生物武器导致美国政府于2073年9月15日命令威斯科技开发一种泛免疫病毒。这项研究最终演变成强制进化病毒项目。[13][Non-canon 23]由于威斯科技两年前实际上被国有化了,科学家们别无选择,只能服从他们的军事主人。[7]

尽管声称要打一场防御性战争,美国步兵和机械化师还是在2074年发动了对中国大陆的入侵。由于美国发现自己在三条战线上打仗,经济被拉到了临界点: 加拿大、阿拉斯加和中国大陆。 尽管八年不断的战争,双方都不愿意屈服。[Non-canon 24]2076年,战争已经持续了十年。中美都在崩溃的边缘摇摇欲坠,但双方都陷得太深,无法撤退。1 月,在威斯科技设置了一个永久性驻军,以确保强制进化病毒项目在国际间谍活动中保持安全,因为它进入了对和黑猩猩进行实验的新阶段。[Non-canon 25]到月底,加拿大的吞并完成。它的省份被置于戒严令之下,所有抗议者和暴乱者都被枪杀。以联邦名义犯下的暴行在美国蔓延,发酵成反政府情绪。[12][Non-canon 26]

然而,美国的宣传获得了抵消这些问题的优势,6月T-51动力装甲的推出引入帮助扭转了天平,有利于美国军方。下一代动力装甲解决了老一代装甲存在的问题,提供了卓越的火力和机动性。配备了T-51b的机械化骑兵部队被派往阿拉斯加和中国的前线,在共产主义军队中开辟了一条新路。中国经济在冲击下崩溃,被北京政权吞并的国家的供应线也开始崩溃。[Non-canon 27] 然而,即使有这些新优势,美国政权从长远来看也没有好转。8 月,美国各地的城市中心开始爆发食品和能源骚乱。宣布进入紧急状态并最终戒严,美国军队被部署在国内前线与本国同胞作战。 美国实际上成为了军政府。[Non-canon 28]

美国的崩溃

"我们忠心的孩子们在新兼并的加拿大维持和平"

2077 年以高调开始,收复安克雷奇以美国在1月10日取得决定性胜利而告终。[Non-canon 29][14][15] 然而,这对美国和加拿大公民来说都是一个坏消息,因为控制美国的军政府向加拿大和美国部署了机械化骑兵部队,以解决和防止进一步的煽动叛乱。中国和阿拉斯加前线的退伍军人发现自己在与自己的同胞作战,平息骚乱,并执行全国隔离。不断增加的平民伤亡使许多士兵失去了忠诚,逃兵开始频繁发生。[Non-canon 30][16]F.E.V.项目被转移到玛丽博萨军事基地进行人体试验后,研究成果被泄露给了公众。美国公众和世界各地幸存的政府都对这一启示感到愤怒。许多人猜测,美国政府应对策划了新瘟疫负责,故意助长偏执和动乱。[Non-canon 31]

阿拉斯加战线的崩溃让中国人感到震惊。不断的美军轰炸和堑壕战,加上一波席卷中国大陆的尖端T-51动力装甲套装,导致他们的补给线完全崩溃。胜利似乎触手可及。[Non-game 3] 然而,中国的猛烈抵抗阻止了前进,迫使过度紧张的美军陷入消耗战。随着两大巨头的历史性冲突中伤亡人数的增加,公众对这场战争的不满与日俱增。[17] 毕竟,虽然中国人被阿拉斯加击退了,但它是在经过十多年的战争之后才到来的,而且看不到尽头。数十亿美元和数千人伤亡之后,战争再次陷入僵局,没有明确的胜利者。[18] 另一个促成因素是日益严峻的粮食状况,骚乱经常发生。部署来保护食品银行的美国陆军军人以应对暴力冲突而闻名。在马萨诸塞州罗克斯伯里发生的一起值得注意的事件造成四人死亡,八人受伤,此前士兵们大笑并提前在人群中挑选目标。 这绝非例外。[19]

面对一个迅速瓦解的国家,以及中国被逼入绝境,统治美国的寡头们撤退到世界各地的偏远地区,期待着中国随时发动最后的核打击。[Non-game 4] 总统和军政府的主要成员声称拥有南加州海岸附近的一个石油钻井平台,成为未来英克雷的基础。[Non-canon 32] 美国各地的基地被封锁,军队重新部署,将更多的人送入中国战线变成的绞肉机,从而维持美国的战争努力。[20] 到10月,美国实际上已经变得毫无领导力,仅仅因为惯性而继续前进。当美国陆军在玛丽博萨的安全细节发现 F.E.V. 正在对他们的战友进行实验 – 正是那些因拒绝与自己的同胞作战而被捕的人 – 他们造反了。然而,即使罗杰·麦克森上尉宣布他们完全脱离美国军队并断绝与美国的所有联系,也没有任何回应 – 指挥链不复存在。[21][Non-canon 33] 美国各地的所有权力办公室都是封闭和黑暗的,由骨干人员维护。一些敬业的作家,例如Mags Veccio,进行了最后一次战前记者调查,揭露了英克雷的石油钻井平台和总统在那里的住所。英克雷的盖子几乎被炸开了。[22]

核武器2077年10月23日发射。[Non-game 5] 两小时内,美国作为一个国家不复存在,其城市在核火球中蒸发。[21] 该国的前领导人已经撤退到他们的避风港。被他们的领导人抛弃,幸存者开始自己重建。

社会

宣传的一个例子

虽然美国建立在人人享有自由和正义的原则之上,但21世纪的资源危机和创伤性经历的现实导致该国几乎完全放弃了这些原则。对共产主义和经济崩溃的恐惧导致人们心甘情愿地遵守逐渐废除的公民权利; 用自由换取安全。[23] 虽然行政部门与主导美国经济的公司之间的勾结影响了宪法自由,但向极权主义国家的过渡真正始于中美战争。战时审查制度使政府能够没收和不分青红皂白地销毁任何被认为具有煽动性的材料。[24] 这就是《爱国者食谱》和许多其他出版物的命运。[25] 许多出版物成为宣传的渠道,用来嘲笑非民族主义情绪和抗议者。[16]

有组织的劳工和工会遭到政府和企业的猛烈攻击。阿帕拉契亚地区的镇压尤为严重,是为战争提供原材料的战略地区,也是广泛自动化的熔炉。在阿帕拉契亚州州长埃文斯的支持下,宏恩莱特工业矿业公司Atomic Mining Services羅科工業推动用机器人技术取代人工,使成千上万的工人失业,加剧了广泛的社会动荡并使人民陷入贫困,战时工人法案使情况变得更糟 。动乱在 2077 年底的阿帕拉契亚采矿骚乱中达到高潮,工人与政府和企业执法者之间经常发生冲突。[26] 然而,甚至在那次爆炸之前,极权主义国家就在虐待和谋杀他们的公民:位于舒格格羅夫美国海军设施就是这种趋势的一个例子,它对美国公民进行秘密监视,识别劳工活动家和其他“叛徒”,这通常导致绑架、未经审判的谋杀,以及所有幸存的儿童被忠诚的家庭收养。[27]

政治并不是镇压的唯一原因。根据行政命令99066,中国和华裔美国公民和居民未经审判就被拘留并安置在集中营,有时是由军方雇用的私人安保承包商进行基本上是绑架的活动。[28] 马里兰州斑鸠拘留营就是这样的一个集中营,迫使囚犯生活在肮脏的环境中,没有适当的卫生设施,囚犯遭受虐待、酷刑和残酷审讯。[29]最终,该命令被用作由军方酌情监禁任何和所有持不同政见者的理由。许多人最终消失在美国各地的各种研究设施中,被用作各种研究项目的试验品,为战争提供了动力。[30]

2076年全国宣布戒严,标志着这一渐进过程的完成;军队终于获得了对国家安全机构和公共事务的自由和完全控制权。军事单位被部署以平息骚乱并实施隔离,只对自己的指挥系统负责。[Non-canon 34]

他们有过练习:吞并加拿大向美国增加了大量心怀不满的居民,他们是美国军方及其公司近十年虐待的受害者。[Non-canon 35] Protests and rioting did little to stay the iron hand of their new American masters.[Non-canon 36] Martial law instituted in the wake of the annexation earlier in 2076 allowed the U.S. military to shoot protesters and rioters without consequence. Canada was brought to heel, although the atrocities committed in the name of the American people were leaked stateside, leading to unrest and protests despite the best efforts of American propagandists.[Non-canon 37][Non-canon 38]

政府与政治

The government of the United States of the 21st century had strayed far from the principles of governance enshrined within the Constitution of the United States, becoming an oligarchy with the characteristics of a military junta by 2077. Civil rights and liberties were increasingly curtailed in the name of national security and the war effort, until all pretense of a democratic order was dropped in late 2076, in the face of an open revolt by allies, neighbors, soldiers, and civilians. The state of emergency and then martial law granted the military and corporations total control over the country formalizing an existing state of affairs,[Non-canon 39] not unlike the annexation of Canada: When the fact was announced in 2077, it was largely a formality, as the United States consistently exploited Canadian resources without regard for Ottawa's opinions since 2069.[Non-canon 40]

The reason the military and civilian government stayed in power was in part due to Project Brainstorm, the "Induced Patriotism Initiative". Pervasive propaganda designed to instill nationalist sentiment and loyalty in the citizenry had been developed as part of the Sino-American War. This provided the military with increased enlistment rates, and thus a continuous source of new soldiers to throw at their Chinese enemies, as well as an increased tolerance for excesses of the state.[31]

The structure of the federal government remained of use to the American regime, however. Federal agencies, such as the National Park Service, the Bureau of Alcohol, Drugs, Tobacco, Firearms and Lasers, and the United States Space Administration continued to exist and execute their duties. However, the balance of power was still predictably shifted towards the Department of Defense and the military. The legislative and judiciary branches of government were severely hampered in the execution of their constitutional oversight, subordinated to the goals of the executive. A separate federal agency, the Political Office, was set up to handle investigations into internal affairs, much like Soviet commissariats.[32] The agency was empowered to arrest and allocate the interned persons for any purpose it saw fit – including the transfer to various corporations so that they may be used as test subjects.[33]

States and commonwealths

Both state and commonwealths were used to describe regions and governmental entities before and after the Great War. The thirteen commonwealths of the United States were created in 1969.[34] After the war, survivors continued to use these distinctions as well as developed new naming structures.[35] In Appalachia, federal documents use the distinction "Territory of Appalachia," among other similar names.[36][37]

National flag

主页面: Flag of the United States

Several variants of the flag were utilized by the country to represent itself both before and after the war. All variants had 13 horizontal stripes alternating white and red. Variants differed in their number of stars on a blue background, including those with 13, 14, and 50 stars. Although the majority of flags appearing are the 13 star version, the 50 star flag was also used, appearing in posters and on weapons, armor, and clothing.

Military, law enforcement and crime

一名机械化骑兵在星条旗前合影留念。

As an increasing militaristic superpower, the United States had given priority to its armed forces, which asserted increasing control over law enforcement and public affairs. With widespread propaganda and pervasive domestic espionage efforts through the Defense Intelligence Agency and black projects of the various branches,[38] the military, controlled by the Department of Defense was one of the pillars of the American regime, supported by a network of vigilant citizens reporting suspected sedition and crime. In fact, fusion, the life-saving technology that allowed the American economy to last a while longer, was an off-shoot of a military weapons program.[Non-canon 41]

Most units outside the veteran formations fighting on the front lines against the Chinese and subjugating Canada suffered from poor training regimens. The situation was particularly bad with auxiliary units of the National Guard.[39]

The situation eventually led to the authorization and issuance of military-grade laser weapons to civilians, in order to use them as cannon fodder in case of a communist invasion or insurgency on American soil.[40] Private security companies were also contracted to perform arrests and round up civilians, completely blurring the line between the public and private sectors.[28]

经济

Like other economies worldwide, the United States was severely affected by the resource shortage of the middle 21st century and the resulting Resource Wars. Though based on the principles of a free market and open competition, the crisis allowed a handful of mega-corporations to seize control and establish a practical monopoly in key sectors of the American and even world economy. Many of these corporations became so deeply involved and integrated into the nation's infrastructure, that trying to decide where the corporation ended and the state began, became a largely academic discussion. As a result, the corporations effectively acted as sovereign nations unto themselves. Exploitative and abusive labor practices were the norm, such as with the Vault-Tec Corporation, which was notorious for its strictly enforced 2.25 minute (135 seconds) bathroom breaks.[41][42] Worse yet, as a strategic defense contractor for the government, Vault-Tec's affairs and all related publications (including, for example, the Vault Dweller's Survival Guide) were protected by the New Amended Espionage Act and any whistleblowing attempts would likely hurt the whistleblower more than the corporation.[Non-game 6]

One such mega-corporation was Poseidon Energy. It had a near-monopoly on the energy market in the United States, controlling nuclear power plants, exploitation of remaining oil fields, and even sustainable energy projects, like HELIOS One. It hid its involvement by operation through numerous companies established as fronts to influence and eventually control key industries. It also conducted a slew of its own military research projects, including development and implementation of orbital beam weapons.[43]

The war with China also allowed smaller companies considered vital to the war effort to cut support for their workers by a considerable margin. Workman's compensation was among many staples of labor law suspended as part of the war effort, denying vital support to laborers injured in the course of their work.[44] The deteriorating economy also made it easier for corporations to take advantage not just of their employees, but also of the general public. The Big Mountain Research and Development company was particularly infamous for luring isolated communities into Faustian pacts, where they agreed to act as test subjects for bleeding-edge technologies – often with disastrous effects.[45]

The mildest example of collusion was the ability of corporations to advertise directly to members of Congress and the House of Representatives. Companies from Nuka-Cola to the Red Racer tricycle company were able to purchase advertising airtime on the Presidential metro PA system.[46][47]

Of course, giving corporations free rein did not alter the harsh reality of an imminent economic collapse. One way in which this was delayed was by annexing and exploiting resources of sovereign countries. Mexican oil refineries were occupied in 2051 to keep the pipelines open,[Non-canon 42] while Canadian timberland, ore deposits and other critical resources were claimed in 2069, as the Sino-American War lumbered on with no end in sight.[Non-canon 43] Formal annexation began in 2072, following a sabotage attempt and occupation of Canadian soil by American military forces.[Non-canon 44]

Even with these resources propping up the economy, shortages were common. When the first fusion-powered cars were introduced by Chryslus Motors in 2070, the initially limited models were expensive but sold out within days. Supply was limited, as many Chryslus manufacturing facilities were long since converted into making military ordnance.[Non-canon 45] These were not isolated incidents, as many factories whose production and sales that were less than adequate were also systematically nationalized. This was the case with Radiation King Assembly Plant 12 in the Appalachian Territories, even though they were close to a 100% peak efficiency rating.[48] The process was a quick one; Army engineers arrived, looked at the machinery and questioned the employees about their operation, then they promptly left and began the conversion process.[49] With the rapid transition of the factory, its workers were conscripted and put to work manufacturing ammunition.[50][51] This overproduction was to have the benefit of keeping its workers employed while keeping their morale up, with the added benefit of stockpiling supplies locally should the war go nuclear.[52] There was also a high rate of inflation, with a mundane coffee selling for $28,[53] a magazine for $35,[54] and a car for $199,999.[55]

However, voluntary compliance with government control was not enough. Critical defense contractors were effectively nationalized without compensation, by being put under military command – as was the case with West Tek's Californian facility.[7] Some companies, like Poseidon Energy, were only placed under military command in 2077 – although the degree to which the oligarchs controlled the American government alongside the junta made it a cosmetic change, at best.[56]

    With conditions deteriorating between the United States and China, a military presence in Alaska was established to prevent a possible invasion across the Bering Strait. With increasingly scarce oil reserves, a last deep-sea deposit below the Pacific Ocean was claimed by China before allegedly being sabotaged by American special operatives. Strained relationships spiraled downward into escalated conflict, as China marched on Alaska, and the Sino-American War of 2066—2077 erupted. Under the command of General Jingwei, the Chinese Army usurped control of Alaska's oil pipeline and reserves. In response, the Americans had begun what came to be called "The Alaskan Reclamation Operation" (2067—2077).
    Under the leadership of General Constantine Chase, the U.S. Army battled fiercely to the front lines of the conflict before General Chase deployed specialized power armor units that began pushing the Chinese back. Future power armor suits were further refined as the conflict dragged on, and the Trans-Alaska Pipeline was reclaimed. With resources flowing through Canada, strained diplomatic tensions between Canada and the United States becoming problematic, and as the Canadian forces attacked the pipeline, the country was annexed.
    A combination of inclement weather, constant American bombardment and trench warfare, and the U.S. powered armor unit attack sweeping through mainline In-game spelling China, the Chinese supply lines weakened and finally broke down completely. By the beginning of 2077, the city of Anchorage was finally liberated, the Chinese invaders eradicated, and the operation had been deemed a success. A commemorative memorial was erected in Washington, D.C., in honor of the soldiers who fought and perished for the greater American good. Violence between America and pockets of Canadian freedom fighters continued throughout 2077 until the Great War obliterated almost all infrastructure, commerce, and human life."

  1. Fallout Bible 0: "Basically, the Vaults were never intended to save the population of the United States. With a population of almost 400 million by 2077, the U.S. would need nearly 400,000 Vaults the size of Vault 13, and Vault-Tec was commissioned to build only 122 such Vaults. The real reason for these Vaults was to study pre-selected segments of the population to see how they react to the stresses of isolationism and how successfully they re-colonize after the Vault opens."
