Utah is a state in the western United States and is geographically considered 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 electronic infrastructure of the western United States. Utah is bordered by Colorado to the east, Wyoming to the northeast, Idaho to the north, Arizona to the south, and Nevada to the west. It also touches a corner of New Mexico in the southeast. Utah saw little conflict during the Civil War and much of its urban centers remained intact, but uncontrolled fires, rioting, and chaos following the 2013 EMP drove residents from urban settlements to more self-sufficient fringes. Many Utah natives live off of the grid and continue to do so even in the face of their state's dismal condition. Much of Utah remains uninhabited, though new settlements run by Mormon-leaning civil war survivors have begun popping up in the region of Zion National Park. These communities — self-sufficient and energy-independent — are a powerful example of human resilience, though are not officially recognized by the United States Government.
