Nevada is an arid state in America's southwest and is geographically 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 American west's power grid. Nevada borders Oregon to the northwest, Idaho to the northeast, California to the west, Arizona to the southeast and Utah to the east. Nevada is largely desert and semi-arid, much of it within the Great Basin. Areas south of the Great Basin are within the Mojave Desert, while Lake Tahoe and the Sierra Nevada lie on the western edge.

With one of the largest concentrations of military installations in the United States, Nevada was a primary source of power for the Mitchell regime during the early days of the Second American Civil War. In early 2013, Resistance forces moving in from California destroyed Nellis Air Force Base and swept up through the northern portions of the state in extensive hit-and-run attacks backed by powerful SLC-Expressive combatants. In November of 2013 when the majority of the Mitchell-regime forces in Nevada were routed, a nuclear attack was launched on the American west coast, resulting in an EMP strike that destroyed Nevada's power grid. Much as in Arizona, tens of thousands died trying to escape the violence spreading across major population centers, while others died in the violence springing up in the aftermath of the EMP. Little remains of Nevada's cities and towns today, most of which have been consumed by the Mojave wasteland.
