Events before the Great War Edit
Prior to the events of the Great War, the world was in a great shape. Popular culture had not progressed since 1954, science and technology had only recently been forced into a minor shuffle forward and China was selling its amazingly amusing television program The Yao Guai Show to all non-American countries (with a new Park Ranger Smith being introduced as many as five times in each 14 minute episode).
The Great War Edit
The Great War was a particularly trying time. Nuclear farts (from Super Mutants who used the F.E.V) were shot in the world, and no one could take the smell. Fart transformed into radiation, and it bathed the land, and eventually, the vaults were used as a fallout shelter, instead of the tv they were.
