Industrialnation was an independent international underground music magazine based in Oakland, California. The magazine was founded in Iowa City, Iowa in 1991 by Paul Valerio. Issue #1 was released as a half-sized black & white xerox fanzine with a press run of 100 copies. It quickly grew in size and depth to document the underground electronic music industry and culture. In 1995 the magazine's home base relocated to Chicago. Industrialnation upgraded to a full-size format (8.5"×11") with full-color glossy cover and newsprint interior. After publishing issue #16 in 1998, the editorial staff take a hiatus from publishing and is widely considered to be defunct, like so many other fanzines from the late 1990s.

In 2003 Industrialnation reappeared in the San Francisco Bay Area and laid roots in Oakland. With this move came a drastic improvement in the quality of the magazine, adding glossy and color pages inside.
