Oregon is a state in the Pacific Northwest region on the West Coast of the United States and is geographically a part of the Pacific North West Dead Zone, a region of the United States impacted by the 2013 nuclear EMP strike that destroyed Oregon's power grid and all unshielded electronics. The Columbia River delineates much of Oregon's northern boundary along Washington state, while the Snake River delineates much of its eastern boundary along Idaho. The parallel 42° north delineates the southern boundary with California and Nevada. Additionally, Oregon is indicated as a dangerously uninhabitable region centered around the Brentwood-Darlington Exclusion Zone, site of a 100 kiloton atomic blast. The resulting destruction of chemical plants, refineries, and other heavy industries poisoned the land in Brentwood-Darlington and surrounding regions. A survey performed in 2017 declared the region clear of nuclear fallout, but the damage from toxic spills still pollutes the once beautiful region. Oregon remains largely uninhabited after the nuclear strike of 2013, save for fringe communities and rugged, determined individuals living off the land far from the exclusion zone.
