So, the Nuclear Apocalypse has come and gone. The year of 1962 wasn’t a good one for humanity, at all, but the United States government, in their eternal infallible wisdom, had a plan to outlive Armageddon.
US Survival Bunker-0X0 was built to house 5,000 of America’s most valuable citizens. Located in the most remote part of Idaho, it was almost unknown to the US population. High Ranking Politicians, Military Brass, and Wealthy Businessman were all housed there, and their official plan was to:
A) Wait in their bunker for a minimum of 50 years, thus skipping the worst parts of the apocalypse.
B) Resurface; make contact with the surviving humans
C) Rebuild the country
But, there is one problem with their plan. After they resurface, they find that City States have been built - City States with superior numbers that wanted to control the Wasteland their own way. So, my question is, How could the Bunker Dwellers rebuild and resettle America according to their plan?
The Bunker Dwellers, compared to the rest of the wastes, are technologically advanced. The built their bunker over a deposit of fossil fuels, so they have access to motor vehicles and air transportation. They also have modern weapons, like machine guns and artillery, while the Wastelanders use 1800s style guns. The Bunker is nuclear powered. The Bunker Dwellers' main problem is that they have a military force of about 2,000, making them incredibly outnumbered.
