Purpose State

Virginia, officially the Commonwealth of Virginia, is a state in the Southeastern and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States located between the Atlantic Coast and the Appalachian Mountains. The geography and climate of the Commonwealth are shaped by the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Chesapeake Bay, which provide habitat for much of its flora and fauna. The capital of the Commonwealth was Richmond, though since the Second American Civil War the city had laid in ruins. As Virginia was a central target in conflicts throughout the Civil War, much of the state was involved in some of the most escalated fighting seen in the US. Huge portions of Virginia lay in completely flattened ruin from repeated bombing campaigns and street-to-street fighting that claimed hundreds of thousands of lives and displaced millions. Rural settlements far from military or government installations were overwhelmed by refugees and in the height of the war tensions within these communities led to additional conflict and strife that spread destruction, disease, and chaos.

In the years following the war, settlers have come back to rural Virginia in areas not polluted by biological or chemical weapons or the destruction of refineries and factories. Richmond was declared uninhabitable by the US government in 2016 and there are as of yet no plans to rebuild the city or its surrounding suburbs. The communities that do exist in Virginia are small and scattered, insular and by-and-large untrusting of the new government. Sentiment surrounding the end of the war is poor in Virginia, with many citizens still holding Expressives responsible for the deaths of friends and family. Fringe groups like Pure Earth have a strong foothold in Virginia which has made reclamation efforts slow and dangerous.
