We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

The Southwest Commonwealth was one of the thirteen commonwealths of the pre-War United States of America. Created in the early 21st century, it was comprised of the former states of Southern California, Nevada and Hawaii, and borders the Northwest and Four States Commonwealth.
Nevada Wasteland[edit | edit source]
Non-Mojave Nevada[edit | edit source]
Like New Vegas to the south, Northern Nevada has its own gambling haven of New Reno. Though it is officially apart of the NCR by 2281, Reno is still operated by crimes families, but only the Bishops and Van Graffs. Other than Reno there's also Vault City, a small city formed after the opening of one of the few control Vaults. This city is also a part of the NCR. There have also been many failed communities in this part of the state in the 2240s, such as Broken Hills. Once led by Marcus he went on to form and lead Jacobstown in the Mojave.
Outside of Reno and Vault City and the failed communities, there is Gecko, once led by Harold. The 80s, a roaming group of raiders, lurk the I-80 and take advantage of the NCR's inability to protect its road and trade routes. The 80s also terrorize what few small towns there are outside of the Mojave, like Caliente.
Mojave Wasteland[edit | edit source]
The Mojave Wasteland is a wasteland that comprises South Nevada. The Mojave Wasteland is having power struggles between the NCR invaders, Caesar's Legion tribals, and Mr. House. The Hoover Dam and New Vegas Strip are the main interests and concerns. Drug running and gang life is rampant in the area, as well as runaway creatures and hostile wildlife.
New California[edit | edit source]
New California, also referred to as the Core Region or simply California, is a loosely defined area on the American West Coast and Southwest, notable for being one of the most detailed and fleshed-out regions of the setting. New California stretches from Baja in the south to Klamath in the north. It covers most of the pre-War state of California, southern Oregon, and western Nevada as well as parts of northern Baja Mexico, and is the home of the largest post-war country, the New California Republic.
Hawaii[edit | edit source]
Aside from once being apart of the Southwest Commonwealth, there has been no significant information of the current status of Hawaii post-Great War from any released source.
