Kids on Bikes, a bleak future

Hey there guys,

last week I've popped back in on these forums to try something I haven't been able to get going with any of my tabletop groups: Kids on Bikes. As a massive stranger things fan, I knew immediately that this game would be something I'd really like to run. I've read through some other games with kind of the same premise (tales from the loop and Weirdville, Anywhere mainly), but I feel really comfortable with the ruleset given in this particular system.

You can head to the forum to post an application there, which consists of 2 parts.
I want to know about your character, but mainly I want to leach you guys for some information on how Bleakwater is made up. I know that a lot of worldbuilding threads bogging down end up as a premature death to a game, that's why the decision was made to do it like this. Feel free to discuss in the OOC though if you find you want to bounce some ideas off of each other.
