First Citizen Lynette runs Vault City with cold hands and an iron grip. The city is bureaucratic, sleek and antiseptic, with a lot of technology, rules, regulations and guards. The population is antipathic to all outsiders, and pro-slavers in policy, although they prefer the term "servants". They claim that it is legitimate because they give the servants shelter, food and protection, but people like Thomas Moore object to this heavily, and call it hypocrisy since they frown at those who openly call it slaves and do slaving (The Den, for instance). They won't share their technology with the outside world, either, because they view at everyone else as "thieves and baggarts" of the wasteland.
The game takes place in the year 2241 on the West Coast of what used to be the United States of America, mostly in California and Nevada. Faced with the worst drought on record, the village elders of Arroyo ask the direct descendant of the Vault Dweller, referred to as the Chosen One, to retrieve a Garden of Eden Creation Kit (GECK) for Arroyo.

- If you want to help but you are not sure where to start, try improving the various stub articles by expanding them. Another helpful activity would be to check the list of wanted pages for frequently linked-to articles that do not exist yet.
- If you want to experiment with editing a wiki, please do it in a sandbox, not in articles.
