The Northwest Commonwealth was one of the thirteen areas of the pre-War United States. Created in the early 21st century, it was comprised of the former states of Northern California, Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Alaska.


Alaska was one of the major sites of fighting during the war with China, notably around the Anchorage Front Line.

War in AlaskaEdit

In 2059, the United States established a significant military force to protect its oil interests in Alaska, in light of the ever dwindling oil reserves in the world, as well as increasing tensions with China. In the winter of 2066, the Americans' fears became reality as the Chinese military invaded Alaska and took over a significant portion of the land. Alaska became a war zone between the United States and China, furthering fears of nuclear apocalypse around the world. On January 10, 2077, the United States finally reclaimed Alaska from the Chinese. The war between the two remained intense, ultimately leading to the The Great War on October 23rd of the same year.
