The Enclave and Fallout (Overview)

Years after the bombs fell and America - as well as the rest of the world- became covered in radiations, The Enclave would come out of their hiding with a very specific ideology: the belief that all mainland humans as mutants, save for those who were hidden in bunkers and fallout shelters known as vaults. I think Tvtropes explains their morality the best (https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Characters/Fallout):

"Blue and Orange Morality: They want to restore America and humanity, but due to the latent radiation of the wasteland thanks to the nuclear war, they see all mainland humans as mutants, save for those safe in the vaults. So their plans to rebuild the country demand that you and most of the other wasteland inhabitants be killed. To them, shooting a human Wastelander is no more "immoral" than it is to shoot a Super Mutant or ghoul."

Thus, their main goal is to spread themselves as the only 'pure' humans left while wiping out all other tainted peoples.They are basically a slightly more complex version of Nazis with a veneer of pre-war American culture. They are some of the main antagonists of Fallout 2 and Fallout 3. Even in Fallout 1 and Fallout 76, the conflict is ultimately caused to some degree by the Enclave, albeit indirectly.
