Pretty much, the only way to avoid nuclear fallout is get to a country that A. Hasn't been nuked B. Is not downwind of a country that has.
Let's face it, if there's a ww3 just gone off, there will be so much nasty in the atmosphere, I don't think anywhere would be safe. I would guess
southern latin america, southern africa, maybes australasia, and both arctic circles...
If I remember correctly, the order of attack during SHTF scenario is
1. Nuclear facilities (silos and power stations)
2. Military installations (command and control, airports, facilities)
3. Densely populated areas (so many head per square mile, large payloads)
4. Areas of possible military strategic importance (staging areas, communications, docks, depots, etc)
5 Less dense population areas (so many head per square mile, smaller payloads)
Pretty much these will all be hit in a matter of hours, if not minutes.
There is an equation that is pretty basic in regards nukes aimed at populations, and it is basically how many deaths per dollar spent on the nuke.
There is a cut-off point where nations won't waste the exspensive nuke, as it isn't going to kill enough people to make it worth while - the law of
diminishing returns. I'm serious. It's like an efficiency of deaths per dollar equation.
I know US's first high population density salvo at Russia was estimated to take out 38 to 54 million people. You can expect nations have the same
thing drawn up with regards to targetting the US.
