The Duchy Of Cornwall is part of the Celtic Alliance and is located in the former English county of Cornwall. It forms the tip of the south-western peninsula of the former United Kingdom. It is bordered to the north and west by the Atlantic Ocean, and to the south by the English Channel.
Cornwall (Cornish: Kernow), was a county in the former West Country in the UK.
Plymouth, located in nearby Devon, was hit by a 1MT missile, turning most of it in to 'toxic dust' and radioactive 'garnet stone'. It was quarantined until 2013 due to radiation. There were few survivor an many of these people became deformed. The cracking of skin, loss of hair, body odour, cancer and sensitivity to UV rays made many patients of radiation sickness a difficult to take care of.
In the aftermath of the nuclear war in 1983, there was chaos. Technology was mostly shut down, and for the first time in their lives Cornish people were alone, truly and utterly alone. They were forced to recreate society and in the years since Doomsday many British survivor nations have formed.

The Duchy's logo was a chough crow of the genus Pyrrhocorax of the Corvidae (crow) family of birds chewing a old medieval bezant era gold coin in its beak. This is still in use to this very day, as is the pre-Doomsday Cornish cross flag.
