The town of Hoover Dam
is a town built along the top and sides of the dam. At the bottom of the dam there's a slummy area, and the dam's rim is home to all the rich folk and military.
The Dam became part of the New California Republic
some time after 2242
. The town has lost contact with the central government of the NCR in Shady Sands
, and Governor Joseph Dodge
, the leader of Hoover Dam assumed that the republic was destroyed by the remains of the Enclave
. He is determined to hold the NCR together and has declared himself the president of NCR (or what is left of it). Unfortunately, Dodge is a weak leader, and he fights an ongoing war with the Brotherhood of Steel
