As the NCR expanded eastward into Nevada they took over the old Southern Nevada Correctional Facility in Jean, turning it into the NCR Correctional Facility. As explained by powder gangers, no correcting was done - only manual labor.When the majority of NCR troops guarding the facility were called away to patrol the Colorado River, the convicts decided to take things into their own hands and took over the facility using improvised weapons and explosives made from small amounts of dynamite they had stashed away.

|The Fallout world is not quite our own. It is an alternate reality which diverged from ours at some point after the second World War.
The base concept for the setting is the World of Tomorrow as imagined in the Golden Age of Science Fiction. This means that before the Great War, the Fallout world was more or less what the people of the 1940s and 1950s thought things would be like in 2077.
