The New California Republic (NCR) is a democratic federation based in California, with holdings in Nevada, Oregon, Mexico and along the Colorado River. The Republic is dedicated to the old world values, such as democracy, liberty and the rule of law. The NCR also strives to restore order and progress in the Wasteland, though in recent years, it has faced difficulty living up to those standards.

新加州共和国(NCR)是一个以加利福尼亚州为中心,包括了内华达州,俄勒冈州,部分墨西哥地区和科罗拉多河沿岸区域的皿煮制联邦国家。共和国奉行旧世界的价值观,包括皿煮,渍油和法律。新加州共和国同时也力图恢复废土的秩序和进步,不过近些年来,实现这些理念越来越困难了。



Background
背景
The New California Republic was born from the remnants of the survivors of Vault 15 and the small walled-in community they founded known as Shady Sands. Under the leadership of Aradesh, and with the assistance of the Vault Dweller (who saved Tandi, Aradesh's daughter, and a future president of the NCR), the community prospered. Trade routes with other settlements allowed cultural exchange, and a movement to form a national entity gradually took root and won popular acceptance. In 2186, the town of Shady Sands changed its name to the "New California Republic" and formed a trial council government to draft a constitution. Four more settlements joined the council, and in 2189 the NCR was voted into existence as a sprawling federation of five provinces: Shady Sands, Los Angeles, Maxson, Hub, and Dayglow.

新加州共和国的起源是一个由15号避难所的幸存者建立起来的以水井为中心的小社区,沙城。在阿德拉什的领导和避难所住民(1代主角)的帮助下(他救回了坦蒂,阿德拉什的女儿,后来的共和国总统),社区得到了发展。与其他居住地的贸易促进了文化的交流,建立一个国家实体的进程渐渐起步并得到了广泛的接受。2186年,沙城更名为“新加州共和国”并建立了一个议会性质的政府来起草宪法。还有4个居住地也加入了议会,在2189年新加州共和国投票选出了5个联邦省:沙城,洛杉矶,曼森,哈伯和闪耀之地。



By post-apocalyptic standards, the NCR is a paradigm of economic success and good ethical character. Political enfranchisement, rule of law, a reasonable degree of physical security, and a standard of living better than mere subsistence are daily realities for its 700,000+ citizens. Currently, the NCR is in a state of transition, with rapid economic growth and a sea of change in political leadership, endangering its grand humanitarian ideals. Nowhere is this more evident than in the Mojave, where the Hoover Dam has improved access to electricity and water, but at the cost of straining its budget and embroiling its armed forces in a morally corrosive imperialist project.



以战后的普世标准看,新加州共和国也可以算的上是社会经济和社会道德的双重发展了。政治开明,法律健全,人身安全有保障,可以确保国内700000名公民的生活温饱。今日,共和国正处于转型期间,经济高速发展和领导层反复更迭,已经对共和国秉持的致高人道主义理念造成了冲击。这一问题在莫哈韦无处不在,虽然胡佛大坝可以增加该地电力和水源的供应,但是共和国也为此付出了预算紧张和军事力量滑向帝国主义的代价。



The NCR government's aim is to annex New Vegas as the republic's sixth state. While it already controls Hoover Dam, its treaty with Mr. House and the three families compels it to allot 5% (percent) of the dam's electrical and water production to local use, free of charge. The NCR is also locked into protecting New Vegas from invasion by Caesar's Legion, even though it doesn't receive a single cap in tax revenue from the Strip's highly lucrative resort operations. NCR citizens in the Mojave have largely come here for economic reasons, whether as paid citizen soldiers or as prospectors and fortune-seekers.

新加州共和国政府已经定下了将新维加斯纳为共和国第6个州的目标。虽然已经控制了胡佛大坝,并在与豪斯先生和三大家族的协议中出让免费供应大坝水力与电力产能的5%给当地使用作为条件。但共和国同时也陷入了必须从凯撒军团的进攻下保护新维加斯的尴尬地位,同时从赌场街的奢华销金窝也抽不到哪怕一瓶盖税。莫哈韦的新加州公民也因为经济因素成批的拥到此地,毕竟不管对公民士兵还是拾荒者探险家来说只要有钱赚就行。


Society
社会

Most of the NCR is made up of farmers, merchants or settlers seeking protection from the dangers of the post-apocalyptic world. In exchange, the NCR collects taxes from them to arm, train, and supply their troops.

新加州共和国主要由农民,商人和在战后世界的危险中寻找保护的定居者组成。作为交换,共和国向他们征税以武装,训练和供给新加州军队。


Structure
社会结构
The NCR is a democratic federation, modeling itself on the government of pre-War United States. The government is divided into three branches: legislative, executive and judicial. The legislative branch is the Congress, staffed by representatives elected by their states and senators, forming two houses: House of Representatives and the Senate. The Congressmen use a variety of titles: "Councilor," "Counselor," "Councilman," "Representative," and "Senator." In particular, the Hub (in its own obstinate way) prefers to call their representatives "Governors." The executive branch is the Republic council, headed by the President and Vice-President. The President and Vice-President are elected by NCR citizens, with advice from the Congress. Last, the judicial branch comprises courts and judges ruling in accordance with NCR's adapted version of American common law. United States uses common law, so it's logical that its heirs would continue to use it - after adapting it to post nuclear needs, of course.

新加州共和国是一个皿煮联邦制国家,参照了战前美国政府的结构。政府被分为3个部分:立法,行政和司法。立法权属于国会,各州选举出的众议员和参议员在此工作,并组成上下两院:众议院和参议院。议员们喜欢给自己安插各种乱七八糟的头衔比如:“议会成员”,“参事”,“议员”,“众议员”还有“参议员”。而来自哈伯城的人(很符合他们的犟脾气)喜欢管他们的众议员叫“理事”。行政权属于共和国议会,由总统和副总统牵头。总统和副总统是通过新加州共和国公民选举产生的,但必须接受国会的建议。最后,司法权部分,按照共和国对战前美国习惯法的调整,由法院和法官掌握。美国使用习惯法,所以按照逻辑它的继承者也应该继续使用之——当然,是调整为适合核战后社会的形式。



In theory, this is a sound and well-balanced system, but in practice, every state tries to assert its independence and work towards furthering its own agenda. There is much friction between the states of Hub and Shady Sands, usually related to trade rights and caravan routes, while New Reno remains dominated by various criminal interests. Significant pressure is exerted on the political and economic direction of the NCR by a variety of private interests; in particular, the brahmin barons whose wealth gives them great influence at the ballot box and whose needs are often placed first by officials seeking support in their political ambitions. With the armed forces, the Gun Runners gain special dispensation and influence as they are the primary contributor to NCR's weapon arsenal. Elsewhere, monopolies like the Crimson Caravan and similar trading families dominate the trade routes and use their wealth to gain influence with the NCR government and extort large amounts of money. Smaller competitors who are unable to compete with both the larger competition as well as the high taxes are inevitably muscled out.

理论上,这个系统看起来很完美,但事实上,每个州都试图维护自家的独立并只关心自己的进程。哈伯和沙城之间的摩擦尤其严重,经常是因为贸易权和商队路线的原因。当然新里诺还是处在数个犯罪集团利益范围的控制中。多个私人利益集团是对共和国的政治和经济方向制造压力的主力;特别是那些双头牛牧场主们,有政治野心的政客们会把他们的需求放在首位,以换取这些人所拥有的足以对选举造成决定性影响的财力。在武器装备方面,作为新加州共和国军火库的主要供应商,军火贩子获得了特别的优惠和影响力。除此之外,诸如赤红商队和其他一些类似的家族贸易企业通过控制商路和利用他们的财富在共和国政府中施加影响来更大把的捞钱。而规模小一些,无法撼动他们庞大对手势力和在高税率下生存的竞争企业也就无可避免的被踢出局了。



The president is the biggest factor in deciding on the course the Republic should take. For example, under Tandi (who served over ten terms as President; something Caesar mocks as indicative of monarchy, rather than democracy), the NCR has grown substantially, focusing efforts on rebuilding the pre-War infrastructure and restarting technological development, while under Aaron Kimball, the NCR became more imperialistic and expansive, overextending itself on multiple fronts in the process.

总统是共和国政策的主要推动者。例如,在坦蒂(连任10届总统,被凯撒嘲为与其说是民主政府,不如说是君主统治)的领导下,新加州共和国得到了充分发展,着重于重建战前社会架构和重启技术研究,而在阿伦•金波尔总统的领导下,新加州共和国变得更为倾向与帝国主义和扩张主义,在各个方面都试图增加自身的影响。



There is little to no sexism in the NCR (unlike many other factions in the wastes), most likely due to the community's origins in Vault 15 and Tandi's extended presidency. The republic also has shown little discrimination against ghouls and mutants, though many political analysts argue that this is because NCR has had limited contact with them (the NCR did have little contact with Necropolis or the Master's Army). However, some politicians use lingering anti-mutant sentiments to boost their popularity among the voters.

在新加州共和国内基本没有性别歧视,可能是因为这个社区起源于15号避难所和坦蒂作为总统的原因。共和国也基本上不歧视僵尸和变种人,尽管有些政治家认为这是因为新加州共和国和他们的接触太少(共和国确实和大墓地和主宰的军队有过一些接触)。不过一些政客也会利用潜在的反突变情绪来在竞选时拉票。



There is a clear separation of church and state. NCR has resisted any attempts to canonize the Vault Dweller within the city limits (the statue outside the Hall of Congress is fine, but that's it). Both Aradesh and Tandi found that politics and religion don't mix, especially when they got more exposure to the people of the Hub and visits from a few well-spoken members of the Followers of the Apocalypse. In any event, the NCR in the past and in the present allows any non-psychotic religions within their capital, the NCR are very tolerant of religions as long as they don't involve human sacrifice or dipping people in vats of Forced Evolutionary Virus.

在新加州共和国政教分离非常明显。共和国政府不同意任何试图神化避难所放逐者的行为(国会大厅门口的雕像可以保留,不过仅此而已)。阿德拉什和坦蒂都认为政教不可合一,特别是当他们了解了一些哈伯教徒和面见过部分善于辞令的天启追随者之后。不过不管什么时候,共和国都同意正常的宗教在其领土内传播,共和国对宗教相当宽容——只要他们不搞人祭或者拿人泡FEV就行。

Military
军事

The NCR's military is composed of several Divisions, including special cavalry and mechanized units. In addition, many of their major cities are protected and patrolled by heavily armed police officers. One of their Special Forces units consists of the New California Rangers, a select group that is pledged to protect the people of the Wastes much like the Texas Rangers of old. The Rangers are said to have numerous safehouses throughout the wastes, and they use these to strike at slavers outside of NCR territory (usually in the North). As expected, the two groups hate each other with a passion. NCR was also in the habit of establishing marshals in the major population centers in their territories, responsible for enforcing the laws of NCR throughout the Republic. Ghouls, super mutants, and humans were all known to serve in the NCR armed forces. But in the events of New Vegas, super mutants are no longer welcome in the NCR, even in the rangers. They also have access to multiple vertibirds from their battle with the Enclave over Navarro and their war with the Brotherhood of Steel. They may also have access to the blueprints of the vertibirds, because there were copies at Navarro and in possession of the Brotherhood of Steel.

新加州共和国军是由多种军事单位混编构成的,从特种骑兵部队到机械化部队都包括在内。此外,许多共和国重镇都受到全副武装的警力巡视和保卫。这些特种部队之一,新加州游骑兵,是一支精挑细选的军队,像旧时代的德克萨斯骑警一样,保护荒漠中的人民。据说游骑兵在废土上拥有无数的安全屋,并以此为据点打击新加州共和国境外的奴隶贩子(通常是在北部)。自然而然,这两个组织结的梁子不是一般的深。新加州共和国习惯在领土中的主要城市设立治安官,确保新加州的法律在共和国的区域内得到贯彻。新加州共和国的武装力量包括了人类、僵尸和变种人。但是在新维加斯,变种人显然不受新加州共和国欢迎,即使是对游骑兵也一样。新加州军也拥有一些从与英克雷战争中从纳瓦罗和与钢铁兄弟会战争中缴获的飞鸟直升机。可能也获得了飞鸟的结构图,因为这些结构图的复制品在兄弟会和纳瓦罗都有存放。

Relations with the outside
外交
Many people in the western wastelands have mixed feelings about the NCR. Some people strongly support the Republic's goals of spreading democracy and the rule of law, and others vehemently oppose their methods of "controlling" everything they come into contact with. With wastelanders who were used to having no more than a mayor or sheriff now suddenly being part of a complex political structure and having to pay taxes, some view it as a loss of the frontier lifestyles that once defined them. As the NCR's power and territory grew, it made progressively stronger enemies who would test the resolve of the Republic.

西海岸废土的很多居民对新加州共和国有着复杂的看法。一些人强烈支持共和国广布皿煮和法律的目标,而强烈反对者则认为共和国在“控制”所有他们接触的事物。对那些习惯了最多只有一个镇长或者警长管事的废土居民突然被拉进了一套官僚和税收系统里,他们认为曾经的自由生活从此不复存在了。随着共和国实力和国土的增加,强悍的敌人也开始测试共和国的执行能力。

Under President Tandi, the NCR made slow but sustainable territorial expansion, allowing towns and other small communities, who were impressed by the principles of the NCR, to join of their own volition. While defending their borders from hostile raiders like the once legendary Vipers and Jackals, who would be ravaged by the NCR's military until they became broken shadows of their former glory. Eventually taming Southern California. These achievements would garner such respect for President Tandi that the people would come to adore her, and tribals outside the NCR's borders would refer to her as the "Great Mother".

在坦蒂总统的领导下,新加州共和国的领土有着缓慢但在允许限度内的增长,使一些赞成共和国理念的城镇和社区开始并入共和国。通过从那些敌对的掠夺者,比如一度传奇般的毒蛇帮和豺狼帮手中保护边境的行动,新加州共和国的军队把这些曾经强悍的敌人打得半残。最后彻底平定了南加州。这些成就使得总统坦蒂获得了可观的声望和人民的崇敬,即使在共和国领土之外的那些偏远的部落也将她尊为“伟大之母”。

Viewing the NCR's growth and success as a threat to their already stagnating power and influence, the Brotherhood of Steel would launch a military campaign with the goal of pacifying the NCR and asserting its dominance over the wasteland and its technology. After narrowly avoiding defeat in the early days of the war, the NCR would ultimately prevail and force the Brotherhood into retreat and hiding. The NCR had defeated their strongest opponent yet.

由于认为新加州共和国的成功对他们已经停止发展的力量和影响力构成威胁,钢铁兄弟会决定派出一支军队剿平新加州共和国以及要求收回其拥有的土地和科技。在开始的几次失败之后,新加州共和国开始连战连胜并迫使兄弟会撤退和躲藏起来。共和国至此扫平了当时他们最强的对手。

After the death of President Tandi, her successors would gradually change the direction of the NCR. Rapidly expanding the Republic's borders in every direction in a more imperialistic fashion, they sacrificed some of the NCR's principles and moral highground in the process. Now led by President Aaron Kimball, the NCR's expansion has led it to the Mojave Wasteland, where it would encounter the impressive city of New Vegas, and the even more promising Hoover Dam. However it would also encounter its greatest enemy ever, Caesar's Legion, across the Colorado River.

在坦蒂总统死后,她的继任者开始从根本上改变共和国的政策。共和国领土开始快速扩张并且越来越显示出帝国主义倾向,在此期间他们甚至不惜牺牲一些新加州共和国的基本理念和道德。如今在阿伦•金波尔总统的领导下,新加州共和国已经扩张到了莫哈韦废土,在此共和国获得了一座重镇新维加斯,以及更重要的胡佛大坝。但同时也接触了共和国最强大的敌人:隔科罗拉多河而望的凯撒军团。

Technology
科技

The NCR seems to have access to a lot of pre-War technology. Standard NCR soldiers have service rifles along with the standard armor. Similar to the Brotherhood of Steel, the NCR uses power armor, but, unlike the Brotherhood, the NCR is forced to use salvaged and refurbished suits, which are far less effective than the armor employed by the Brotherhood. Its arsenal of power armor is also much more limited than the Brotherhood's, meaning that only a small fraction of the NCR's army uses power armor, being used only by NCR heavy troopers. Additionally, these soldiers are far less skilled in the use of power armor than Brotherhood forces. The New California Republic does not use Energy Weapons in their forces. However the NCR special forces, the NCR Ranger Veterans, use pre-War riot gear and armor. The weapons used by the Rangers include anti-materiel rifle, Ranger Sequoia, hunting revolver, brush gun, among others.

新加州共和国似乎拥有很多战前科技,普通新加州士兵装备着服役步枪和标准护甲。和钢铁兄弟会一样,新加州军也装备动力装甲,但与兄弟会不同的是,新加州军的动力甲是缴获和翻新的,和兄弟会的正牌动力甲完全不是一个档次。相比之下新加州共和国库存的动力甲数量也很有限,也就是说能装备动力装甲的部队在新加州军中只是一小部分,只有新加州重装步兵才使用。还有,和兄弟会的士兵相比新加州军并没有很多使用动力甲的经验。新加州共和国的部队也不怎么装备能量武器。但是,新加州精英游骑兵则装备了先进的战前镇暴装甲。游骑兵使用的武器包括反器材步枪、游侠红杉左轮、狩猎左轮、大型猎枪,以及其他一些装备。

As for civilian technology, they appear to have knowledge of irrigation (As apparent in the NCR sharecropper farms). They can also maintain some pre-War transportation, such as the Monorail at Camp McCarran. The NCR also had an extensive railroad network in the New Vegas area and in the Core Region. This network was used for things like transporting the limestone from Quarry Junction to Boulder City; That is until the Powder gangers revolted and the efforts to curb deathclaw expanding in population failed. However, the railroad system in the Core Region is still likely active.
在民用技术方面,共和国显然拥有农业技术(体现在新加州共和国佃户农场中)。他们也修复了一些战前交通网络,比如麦凯伦营的高架轨道。新加州共和国在新维加斯和核心区铺设了铁路线,并利用这些网线将采掘站的石料运到伯尔德市,但这项计划以为火药帮的叛乱和当地死爪数量的激增打断了。不过,在核心区的铁路线应该还是在运行的。

After annexing Vault City, the NCR got access to many new kinds of technology, such as energy weapons, though they do not use them. Due to Vault City, the NCR can mass produce chems and stimpaks, as well as perform radiation removal and sophisticated surgical procedures, including replacement of lost limbs and organs via cloning and grafting armor plating to one's skeleton. Vault City also allows them to access the ability to make their own weapons, repair pre-War weapons, and make their own power armor, this may mean that only the original NCR Ranger Veterans have pre-War riot gear and that the others were given new models based on the original that were created at Vault City.
在获得地下掩体市的控制权后,新加州共和国获得了很多新的技术,比如能量武器,虽然并没有投入使用。在地下掩体市,新加州共和国可以大量生产药物和治疗针,还有除放射剂和精密手术仪器。包括修复残肢、器官克隆和生物装甲植入手术。地下掩体市也使他们有能力制造武器,修理战前的武器,和铸造动力装甲,这也可能意味着只有原来属于新加州游骑兵的精英游骑兵才能穿用战前的正版镇暴装甲,而其他的成员只能穿地下掩体市生产的山寨货。


PS:历史上确实存在过一个“加利福尼亚共和国”。

恩...我的看法是,地下掩体市应该是保留有制造动力甲和游骑兵甲相关的资料,并提供给NCR。就是有动力甲没专业训练也是用不来的。
