Due to pressure by the public, the US announced on August 16th 2015, its cooperation with 12 other countries to build 77 fallout shelters known as Vaults.they would be build in a select few cities across the world.  Many people would pay for their spot in a Vault. Very few got in by random selection. People of cultural or artistic Value got free places.

Naming Crisis and controversey

Bethesda softworks and obsidian entertainment tried to sue the US government due to their highly popular `Fallout` game series franchise which the Fallout shelters in the games also went by the name Vault. In the end the case was settled by the name being kept for 40 million dollars compensation to each company.

Many critics critizied the government for `Inciting fear in the public and wasting taxpayers money`as Amanda Byson of the New york post put it

Foreign people pointed out other countries would get very few vaults while the US got to have many even in one state.
