The Fallout world is not much different from our own. It is rather a world that diverged onto its own path. The world as we know it went in an opposite direction after the Cold War ended. Its style stayed completely the same, but its technology advanced to incredible heights. But it wasn't perfect. Inflation, corruption and lust for power consumed everything. In the year 2077, a great war broke out and by its end planet earth became a wasteland; a nuclear fallout. Its inhabitants, however, found shelter underground in advanced vault facilities. Shielded away from the horrors of earth's mutated and radiated surface. For decades, Vault 416 remained sealed ever since the day of the blast. Like many of the other hundred vaults, they remained isolated, underground and created a civilisation of their own, not showing a single care for the outside wastelands. Until the wastelands came to them.
