Massachusetts — officially known as the Commonwealth of Massachusetts — is the most populous state in the New England region of the northeastern United States. It is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the east, the states of Connecticut and Rhode Island to the south, New Hampshire and Vermont to the north, and New York to the west. Massachusetts, like New York, was one of the origin-points for the Second American Civil War. Following the civilian massacre in Cambridge, riots spread over much of the Boston metro area. These riots turned into violent anti-government attacks and soon blossomed into the organized offensive of the civil war.

As a result of the civil war, much of Massachusetts lays in ruin, predominantly its eastern, coastal regions surrounding the Boston metropolitan area. Rural western Massachusetts was not spared, either, as the reserve bases around Springfield became an immediate target for both Resistance and Loyality fighting, leaving much of the city and its suburbs as flattened ruins. Northwestern Massachusetts is still home to isolated settlements cut off from major power grids, and refugee camps overflowing with displaced people.
