How would a government handle a person who never got any paperwork?
Say you’re living Blast from the Past, and were born in a fallout shelter underneath the San Fernando Valley, and lived there until shortly after your 30th birthday.
You go up to the surface and try to have a life and find that everybody wants documents – especially birth records and social security numbers – that you don’t have because you were too busy living below what you thought was a radioactive wasteland to bother to go and get.
What do you do? How do you start existing?
