Richmond, Virginia (named New Richmond by survivors after the apocalypse) is the former capital of Virginia. Before the apocalypse, it was the fourth-largest city in Virginia and housed over 200,000 people, with a metropolitan area of over 1,000,000.


Richmond was the capital of Virginia. It was founded in 1737.


It is hinted that a large amount of Richmond's former residents established a peaceful community within the city. Sometime during the outbreak, a large military-style group known as the New Frontier took over the city and established a headquarters there, they renamed the city New Richmond. Magna and her group from the comic books had been in Richmond at one point before finding Alexandria; it is assumed she and her group left before the New Frontier took over.
