New Jersey is a state within the United States of America.

History[]

New Jersey was inundated with refugees and homeless peoples and, as a result, the highway network is still dilapidated from the sheer amount of traffic from their neighbor. The poor could not afford to leave New York City, whilst the rich could afford comfortable, secure housing, but the middle class opted to move elsewhere and simply commute to work. New Jersey was, of course, happy to have New Yorkers bring money from the office and spending it on New Jersey's economy. New York, however, was less than pleased, attempting many solutions, but each was illegal, unenforceable, or neatly sidestepped by imaginative entrepreneurs. DMS purchased Atlantic City after the Collapse left the city completely in debt. DMS forced out the organized crime elements and rebuilt the city to appeal to modern European-style gentrification. The rising sea level forced the state to build dikes along the shores, but there are stairs and docks that offer viewpoints to visitors so as to still see the ocean.[1]

By 2077, most of Atlantic City lies in ruins, but it is still partially inhabited. The rest of the city has been used as a 10,000-acre landfill, one of the world's largest, for toxic and biological waste. At one point, a large fire breaks out in the dump that lasts over a week with no signs of slowing down. The inferno claims the lives of seven firefighters and incapacitates dozens more through inhalation of the poisonous fumes.[2]
