Fallout

Up to date as of February 01, 2010
(Redirected to Commonwealth article)

From The Vault

This article is about a place mentioned in Fallout 3. For the 13 pre-war U.S. commonwealths, see United States. For European organization of states, see European Commonwealth.

The Commonwealth is what is left of the pre-Great War American state of Massachusetts in New England[1]. While traditionally called a Commonwealth in itself, before the Great War Massachusetts was also part of the New England Commonwealth of the United States in the alternate history of the Fallout universe. Most of it is a war-ravaged quagmire of violence and despair like much of the rest of the former United States (and perhaps the rest of the world), but it is also where the mysterious Institute is located.

Contents

Organizations

The Institute is likely the descendant of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Little is known about the Institute other than that the scientists working in the sealed environment possess highly advanced technology and technological skills. The Institute has created true artificial intelligence (AI) and is capable of manufacturing androids.

Another organization active in the Commonwealth, the Railroad, functions in direct opposition to the Institute, as their goal is to free sentient androids from their creators.

Harkness, Dr. Zimmer and Armitage are from the Commonwealth.

During the events of Broken Steel, Dr. Li leaves the Capital Wasteland on a trip to the Commonwealth, apparently to clear her head after the final activation of Project Purity.

Tobar, captain of the Duchess Gambit, made frequent trips to the Commonwealth when his ferry was in better condition.

Appearances

The Commonwealth is mentioned in Fallout 3, The Pitt, Broken Steel, and Point Lookout.

History

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is a state in the New England region of the northeastern United States. Most of its population of 6.4 million live in the Boston metropolitan area. The eastern half of this relatively small state is mostly urban and suburban. The west is primarily rural, also with most of its population in urban enclaves. Massachusetts is the most populous of the six New England states and ranks third in overall population density among the 50 states.

In Marvel lore, Massachusetts is the home of a number of prominent figures, including Emma Frost, Ms. Marvel, and Two-Gun Kid.
