Arizona is a state in the southwestern region of the United States and is a part of the Pacific South West Dead Zone, a region of the United States impacted by the 2013 nuclear EMP strike that destroyed much of the western United States' electrical grid. It has borders with New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, California, and Mexico, and one point in common with the southwestern corner of Colorado. Arizona's border with Mexico is 389 miles long, on the northern border of the Mexican states of Sonora and Baja California. The state of Arizona was the site of several large aerial conflicts during the late 2012 through early 2013 portions of the Second American Civil War, leading to the destruction of nearly all surface military installations by Resistance forces opposing the Mitchell regime. Following the 2013 EMP strike, massive riots and loss of life followed as climate controlled cities found themselves without ability to resist the desert heat. Many who did not flee Arizona following the EMP later died of exposure to the severe desert climate, while others died in riots and violence that burned through the cities for months to follow. Little of Arizona's infrastructure remains, and what does has largely been reclaimed by the desert.
