The New Republic of Nevada is a self proclaimed sovereign nation taking up most of the former state of Nevada. Its territory excludes the city of New Vegas, New Reno and the New Californian Republic controlled areas of southern Nevada.
It was created in 2281 following the Great War, with help from the New Californian Republic, as they believed it would benefit in defences against what was left of Ceasars Legion, whos territory is the the east of Nevada.

After the Second Battle of Hoover Dam in 2282, of which ended with the New California Republic (NCR) taking control of the Dam and pushing Caesar’s Legion back into Arizona. Realizing they were already stretched far, the NCR decided to create a new nation the before lawless areas of Northern Nevada that weren’t patrolled by any faction, were to become a new nation, that with help from the NCR would become their new ally against Caesar’s Legion.
The NCR could not bring the territory into its own possession as its forces and assets were already stretched thin across Western America. They decided that they would create a new nation, with help from the assets they could spare, including some weapons and development money. The new military force that was created, moved in to possess the territories, that would later become the New Republic of Nevada. Many people in the areas took greatly to the new government, as many of them had been harassed by raiders and other groups for too long.
The first president was installed in 2284, (by popular vote by NCR citizens only), namely Dave Davison. The new capital became New Haven located in southern New Nevada. Technologies were developed from seizing and salvaging old Enclave assets, including two Vertibirds, and power armor units, and the republic is basically a puppet state for the NCR.
Though small and young, it is growing, slowly, and will continue to be an ally to the NCR in the new world that is being born in the Wasteland.
Government & Politics
The national laws of the NNR are almost the same as the NCR’s, which ensure democratic freedoms like freedom of speech, religion, etc., and prohibit murder, theft, and more. Citizens are granted voting rights and other legal protections, and they have policies with immigration the same as the NCR.
Government Structure & Bodies
Nevada is a republic, with an elected president, and their political system was influenced by the NCR, who helped establish the country. Nevada, like the NCR is dedicated to old world values, such as democracy and freedom, and as such as government bodies modelled off the original USA.
The executive branch is the Council, headed by the president of the New Nevada Republic and their vice president, elected by the Congress. When elected, the president and their cabinet serve a term of 5 years before elections are to be held again. Effectively, a president can serve for life as there are no term limits to the presidency as there was with the United States.
The Congress, also known as the Senate, forms the legislative branch and is a unicameral parliament staffed by representatives elected in popular elections by citizens of each state that the Republic is comprised of. Apart from legislation, Congress also acts as an advisory body to the government of the Republic. Each state represented in NCR Congress sends one representative to New Haven.
The judicial branch is comprised of courts and judges ruling in accordance with NCR's law and each citizen has the right to vote for a representative of their choice to sit in the Hall of Congress.
Relations with the NCR are good, as the NCR helped build the new country. The NCR controls the southern territories of Nevada, including the areas around New Vegas, New Reno and the border with Ceasar’s Legion.
Ceasar’s Legion is an enemy of both Nevada, and the NCR, which is a problem because their territory borders Nevada, and the NCR controlled territory, the NCR and Nevadan Army patrol and secure the border, which is mainly the Colorado River.
For other nations, the NNR is so small that it has few interactions with the CSA or Republic of Texas, and so mostly does whatever the NCR does. That being said, they have had some disputes with the Khanate of Four Skulls in the north, but for now have worked out a treaty with the Khanfolk.
The country is divided into several small divisions, each with its own small council, particularly the outer states which have less government and military presence. Some territories, most notably the town of New Canaan, are autonomous but work and trade with the NNR. Below is a list of states, followed by their capitols.
• Capitol- New Haven
• Eastern - New Ely
• Elko - Elko
• Lander - Goodsprings
• Northern - North Town
• Southern - Newfoundsprings
• Western - Lovelock
Society & Culture
Most of Nevada is made up of farmers, merchants or settlers seeking protection from the dangers of the post-apocalyptic world. In exchange, the government collects taxes from them to arm, train, and supply their troops. Since many Nevadans were former NCR citizens who were encouraged to emigrate, or refugees seeking a new home, Nevada is formed from many people groups and cultures, though its population is still quite small.
Many settlers live in small settlements, that rely on farming and trading with Caravan merchants, such as the Nevada Caravan Company. Larger towns such as New Haven and Elko have a variety of small businesses, such as Casinos, Bars and Shops. Some resent the influence of the NCR, but most are thankful for them, and look to New California Republic as an ideal to follow.
The Nevadan market is mostly rural, though they due trade with neighboring nations. Due to their prime location and the creation of railroads and new trade routes, the NNR might soon see dramatic economic growth as goods are ferried from the NCR and out into the wider Wasteland.
Despite having its own nationhood, for practical matters the NNR employs the NCR dollar, as well as the Standard American Dollar.
The NNR has little to trade with, and is relatively poor. However, the location of many of its cities, built across the rapidly developing railroad system, means that goods are being ferried across the state and provide money and supplies.
Nevada is pretty desolate, and its more prosperous regions are found to the south. The dry desert wasteland is mostly home to small tribes and settlements, with only minimal government control.
The Capitol Region
To the south most of the population and seat of power for the NNR can be found. Cities like New Haven are found here, and it is in the so-called “Capitol Region” that the NNR wields the most control.
Moving north in Nevada leads to less and less national regulation and military presence, in what is colloquially termed the “Wastes” by residents. It is home to many mutants, monsters, and all sorts of crazies.
Defense and security varies throughout the country, with the most secure areas being the around the capital and major towns, as well as the border with Ceasar’s Legion territory. The outer areas are less defended, and thus are prone to attacks from creatures and raiders.
The Nevadan Army itself is small, with most of the equipment handed down from the NCR, or Pre-War remnants. The Nevada government is responsible for raising its own army, which mostly serves to the south, but in outer territories control is held by local militias. The NCR also has a large military presence, and will step in to help if needed.
Nevada has access to pre-war technologies due to its relationship with the NCR, but the extent of technology is the few Vertibird that it possesses, many salvaged over long periods of time, from old enclave technologies. Because of the country being in a very remote areas, there were very few vaults, which meant there was a lack of Pre-War technology, but most of it was donated by the NCR, such as weapons. The main Vault in the country is Vault 24, which was opened, but with no inhabitants, it was considered that it was never occupied. Vault 24 is a major source of technology for Nevada.
Most of the military is armed with equipment handed down from the NCR forces, such as Service Rifles, and Pre-War armor. The military also possess few units of power armor, mostly salvaged from old military establishments.
Civilian farmers have knowledge of irrigation, as farming in the region is difficult, although some crops including corn are grown. Part of the NCR rail-network passes through the region, passing nearby New Haven, which makes it an excellent place for trading and transportation.
Most Nevadan citizens own a radio; if not most Saloons or stores have a radio, as it is the only way of gathering news, as most towns and settlements are quite remote. There are two radio stations that can generally be picked up in Nevada: Radio Nevada, and Radio New Vegas, and sometimes Mojave Music Radio depending on location.
