Agreed. There would be many long-term survivors in rural areas, even in the US, Russia and China. Fallout would be a problem, but lets not forget that we've literally had almost a thousand above ground nuclear tests on this planet in the last 60 years. We're still here.
I'd also point out that South America and Africa, as well as many other smaller regions, might not even be targeted in the event of a nuclear war. Some might die from the fallout, but most would not. Civilization would certainly survive in those places, perhaps largely unaffected.
