Junction City is a midsized town in Kansas that refuses to form an alliance with the Brotherhood of Steel. Their independent posture is reinforced by their victory over one of the Calculator's humanoid robots. Brotherhood Elders are quite curious how such a battle could be won, considering the lack of heavy weaponry involved and sent a squad to investigate it, retrieve robotic parts from the scene of the battle and to recruit a mechanic from Junction City to the Brotherhood.
The city is ruled by mayor John Levis, and other notable citizens are his assistant, the bartender Angry Rick, trader Juan, Hank and his wife, Martha Dilbert, the mechanic Casey Barrett along with her father, Stephen Barrett, and Chuck. The town is guarded by its own military force, called "enforcers".
