    Correct.

    Well, monarchist, fascist, or communist all have good posibilites, democratic is really geared towards isolationism.

    ---------------

    Grave news came for democracy in late Februrary. The United States of America, the worlds first and premier democracy, was engaged in a second civil war. The first civil war was not about democracy, and therefore, not worrysome, but this one was. Extremists on both ends have broken away from the US government and were attempting to forge their own states. This in turn pushed some, who were otherwise quite happy with the US government, to break away in an attempt to protect themselves.

    If the world's first modern democracy could not endure such trials, how could Russia? Sure things were looking up now, but some crisis down the road could lead to ruin once again. It was quite possible conflict was just part of human nature, and even the best could not withstand all.

    Russia will have to watch this situation closely. Another trend, good or bad being a matter of some debate, was the intervention of foreign powers. Canada was the first, of course, but surely others would follow. Taking New England was not a bad idea. It surely helped the US government forces, and mostly hurt the Syndicalists, which were of course Canada's most hated enemy. Perhaps in the future, Russia would have interests in America and intervine as well...

    As the American Civil War developed, three things occured that were of no consequence to Russia. Namely, the CSA took the industrial Atlantic Coast, the AUS cemented its hold on the South, and Canada siezed the Panama Canal.

    However, there were some things of consequence to Russia. Firstly, Canada sized Alaska. As most people know, Alaska was once Russian. While the Russian republic was not particularly expansionist, a future long term goal may be the re-purchase of it. Such a thing would have been impossible with the US still in control. However, Canada might be willing to sell it in the future, but only if Russia became friendly with the remenent of the Entente. Indeed, russia was a good candidate, as it was former Entente.

    Next, the US Government became a military dicatorship, atleast temporarly, under MacArthur. A blow for democracy indeed. However, this left the Pacific States of America, a region particularly easy to influence for Russia, as the only remaining true democracy in North America (save the United Provinces, which was almost in South America, and also discounting the Canadian puppet regime in New England). A future alliance may be possible, but for the mean time, they had allied themselves with the dictorial US government in an attempt to save themselves.

    Also of note was Hawaii, which was now independent and a democracy. An alliance there would be of benefit as well. Nice ports for the Russian Pacific Fleet. Chernov was giving the Pacific more and more thought. Europe was cemented under German hegemony, atleast for the time being, but Japan, atleast for the time being, was still a democracy and on decent terms with Russia, despite the issue of Transamur. The region was unstable, however, but nothing a little Russian diplomacy couldn't handle.

    Don't think it would be possible. Kolchak wouldn't surrender his Transamur to a democratic government (He made a coup attempt according to Kaiserreich lore, in 1925 or '26)
    "And the people had increased so exceedingly that the fields and forests were no longer sufficient to provide for them... and so these men departed, forsaking what was meagre in search of what was plentiful. Nor were they content, as are so many who go out into the world, to serve others; but, like the knights of old, they determined that all men should be subject to them, acknowledging them as overlords. And so they took up arms, and broke the bonds of peace, and did great deeds of war and chivalry." - Amaratus

    Closer to home, there were other developments. The renegotiation of the duel monarchy was about to start! And what a start, the first move was Hungary demanding full independence... and Austria agreeing! This development shocked everyone. It was widely believed that the breakup was ineveitable, but everyone thought there'd be some conflict. But not even in the second round was there any violence. Yes, there were disputes, but no violence. Hungary wanted Bosnia. Austria insisted that it should go to Croatia, which was ironicly a Hungarian sphere of influence, so Hungary agreed. Croatia kept Bosnia as it was, so in the end, everyone was happy. Bohemia and Galicia were left alone entirely.

    Elsewhere in Europe, both Belarus and Ukraine had internal crisises, but even after leadership changes, Germany stook firmly by them, accepting that the minor partners of Mittleeuropa had a right to complete internal autonomy. This was mixed news for Russia. While it ment Russia was free to try and obtain alliances with these areas, it also ment that none of them would want to, in essence blocking any short term European goals, and furthering the argument to focus on Asia.

    I played an ATR game as a democratic Russia once and it was interesting, though once I had straightened out the country I ran into the problem of not having much to do. Kaiserreich should offer some more opportunities, though, maybe join the Entente and launch a Russian crusade to make the world safe for democracy.

    I found plenty to do, without going on a crusade.

    So many more options then vanilla

    ---------------
    Despite what path Russia was to take, and especialy if eyes were to be to the Pacific, Central Asia needed to be put in order first. The long and hard to defend border was something of a major trouble.

    This became evident right after the events in Europe when the Central Asian War began. Turkistan had dreams of a new empire, and unfortunatly, certain countries stood in its way. Central Asia was quite to unite against them, with Russia providing aid. Unfortunatly, while Alash Orda was quite pro-Russian, they were now allied to Mongolia's sphere, which was very anti-Russian. Quite possibly in the future, this would lead to war with Alash Orda...

    As many times as I've played Russia in Kaiserreich, I've never picked the Mensheviks. This should be interesting. *subscribed*

    Now that control had been firmly cemented, the question was raosed, "Should we change the constitution?" Everyone but the hardliners and the village communes agreed, the republic was working, and working better then ever! Chernov's reforms had been a success! The possibilty of restoring the tsar a figurehead was breifly brought up, but declined with respect.



    It was now time to begin re-establishing Russia on the world stage. The democrats argued that Russia had no bussiness conducting foreign affairs beyond trade and friendship. The hard core leftists wanted to spread the ideals of socialism abroad. The far right would have agreed, but with their own views instead of socialism, had they still been a coherent force in the politics.

    In the end, Chernov and foreign minister Sukhanov agreed to a compromise of sorts. Russia would simply follow what was best for Russia in any given situation. While this may sound rather selfish and imperialistic, as long as Russia remained a democracy, what could go wrong? Sure some nations might get their toes stepped on in the name of Russia's self-interest, but certainly nothing major would happen.... right?
