The world which Snowman and the Crakers inhabit after the viral outbreak is very different from the world of Jimmy's childhood. Once essential technology has become useless. Without humans to run the machinery and provide order, the civilised world has shut down.

Snowman is forced to scavenge amongst the ruins to survive, living in fear of escaped GM creatures gone feral.

According to Margaret Atwood, Oryx and Crake is set on the east Coast of the USA, near Boston.
