    Current Members of the Administration:

    Chief of the Presidential Administration: KaiserMuffin
    Domestic and Economic Policy Adviser to the President: Vincent of TRP
    Foreign Policy Adviser to the President: Colonel Ironboot
    Army Affairs Adviser to the President: FlyingDutchie
    Navy Affairs Adviser to the President: yourworstnightmare
    Air Force Affairs Adviser to the President: rule_them_all


    Current Government:




    Issues Facing the Administration

    1. Formation of a Government (immediate)
    The Administration has to decide on the best political course to proceed. President Chernov has the backing of his Social Revolutionary Party and the Mensheviks which will allow him to govern with relative ease. Still, a compromise with the liberal Constitutional Democrats would broaden the support for the government at a time of crisis while an alliance with the radical socialists would greatly expedite the implementation of radical socialist reforms.

    2. Administrative Reform (urgent)
    The Government has very little control over areas of the country outside of Moscow and St. Petersburg and decisions of the Government often either can’t be implemented or are ignored. The Government can grant official recognition to Workers’ and Soldiers’ Soviets giving them the power of implementing Government decisions at the local level, but the Soviets are not democratically chosen and are not directly accountable to anyone, and have been a hotbed of radical socialism since their establishment. It is also possible to re-institute the Zemstva system of local elected councils and delegate authority for implementing Government decisions to them, but the socialists argue that elections can easily be swayed by money and lies, giving an undeserved edge to the local elites who are mostly conservative. Finally, the Government can begin to hire and train professional bureaucrats both in the Capital and elsewhere and begin to put a professional bureaucracy in place that will in the future quickly and efficiently implement Government decisions but will take some time to set up.

    3. Location of the Capital (noncritical)
    The previous Government never officially changed the Russian Capital from St. Petersburg even as it governed from Moscow. Keeping the Capital in Moscow, even without an official change, will solidify the status of the city as the Capital of Russia, while moving the Government back to St. Petersburg will make it clear that it remains the official Capital of Russia.

    Please discuss and offer your opinion!

    Application:
    Vincent of Totally Random Productions, Advisor for the Army or Domestic and Economic Policy advisor
    Skills:
    Avid fan of world domination
    Drawbacks:
    Gets turned off by lame map painting, is a known alcoholic

    Signed,
    Vincent

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

    About historical course, I'd go NS (National Populist in KR). Better a strong autocracy than a lame democracy, I allways say. For claims I suggest standard USSR claims WITHOUT Finland (But Finland as a puppet)

    Mortal enemies:The despicable DOGS of GERMANY, AUSTRIA and JAPAN. Death! Death! Death!

    Potential allies and targets: the American Union State (we should aid our brethren in their conflict) could be used to extend our influence to North-America, while mongolia would be a usefull puppet. The Ottoman Empire is weak and should be taken out before they become friends again with Germany, it could be a great puppet

    But goal 1, before all things: Take back our lands! Our lands!

    Vincent of TRP hired! For now acting as both the domestic and the army adviser until someone else comes along.

    TRP, you might also want to check the previous page, especially the last few paragraph of Catherine's biography. I went with a democratic Russia, so unfortunately no Autocracy for you. Feel free to try to steer the country into a rightist nationalist direction though, and of course if democracy proves to be too chaotic there are events for a military takeover down the road!

    So for now, I am sure KM would like to hear your opinions on the three issues at the top of the page.

    Application:
    FlyingDutchie - any military position preferably army or navy.

    Skills: likes tanks, battleships and using them .

    Drawbacks: can lose himself in pointless debate, own AARs eat up time

    Advise:

    - formation of government: compromise with constitutional democrats. Why? Because a Soviet state in Kaisserreichhas been done before, go for something unique.

    - administrative reform: new bureaucracy

    - Capital: depends on other choices.
    Current work: The Sons of Castille - a Castille CK 2 AAR, The German Empire during the 2nd Weltkrieg - A Kaiserreich DH AAR

    Some old (and sadly abandoned) works:
    The plot against Britain - a Kaiserreich mystery,Reconquista! - the exploits of the House Barcelona ,A Short History of the German Empire

    Application; yourworstnightm(are)- any job at all is sufficient, tired of being unemployed.
    Skills- Giving lame advices that actually could be useful.
    drawbacks- Since I am an nightmare I could piss people of.
    -------------------------------------------------------
    Some advice;
    formation of government; we need a strong democratic coalition. Try to build on all pro- democracy groups and leave the dictatorship crazies outside.
    administrative reform; a new bureacracy is needed. Russia need a centralized system.
    Capital; Petrograd is the capital of Russia.

    Hired and hired! FlyingDutchie is the new Army Affairs Adviser and yourworstnightmare gets to pick between Navy and Air Force Affairs!

    KaiserMuffin, I need the Administration's decision by the end of day today so I can play the next 5 months of the AAR, get some more screenshots up and get more people interested in this, so you have about 12 hours from now to make up your mind.

    And hired! rule_them_all and yourworstnightmare can settle it between themselves who wants to be in charge of the navy and who wants to be in charge of the air force.

    All positions are filled for now. If anyone drops out we will add another person. Also, more positions will open up as we get into wars since we will need to put people in charge of different military operations. If anyone wants to be a generic "Adviser to the President" without a specific portfolio we can do that too.

    I am keeping track of everyone's suggestions and will wait for KM to make his final suggestions before playing the next few months.

    ++++++++++++++PRESIDENTIAL EYES ONLY++++++++++++++


    The administration has had differing points of view on the subject of the various topics presented. However the Chief of the Presidential Administration has read the reports of the officers

    Topic 1: The formation of the Government - Immediate Priority.

    The Council recommends that President Chernov speaks to Pavel Milyukov. Coalition Politics are needed to broaden support through society for what is currently seen as a left-wing and potentially undesirable government. Bringing in the Liberals should add some conciliatory support to our government from both the Landowners, the Man on the Street and the Military.

    Topic 2: Reform of the National Administration - Important.

    The Council is nearly unanimous on this point. The Soviets, as noted, are not directly responsible to anyone and thus we cannot trust that they would wield power sensibly. The Zemstva system of Tsar Alexander and Milyutin is what caused the revolution and would perhaps be popular with the aristocracy - but it is severely anti-democratic. Thus the creation of a central bureacracy must be our choice.

    Topic 3: Location of the Capital

    The Council recommends Moscow both for the reason of dissociation from the Imperial-Western viewpoint, and also the simple expedient of defensive efficiency.


    //(note, do PM me in future :P Makes it more of a surprise what the result is and we don't get you sheeping each other also adds an element of plotting into the game, as I will mainly play a Lazar Kaganovich, to any aspiring Stalins (Look your history up!))

    I agree that we must push for an alliance with the constitutional social democrats and liberals to widen our power in the Duma. I also agree that a centralised bureaucracy, possibly with a tangible but non-communist national control over our industrial resources is nessecary to rebuild our shattered nation.

    On the matter of capitol, the Advisor states that Moscow is the best choice. The Tasarist Empire is dead, and a strong central capitol is needed to defend our democracy.

    Long live the Federation! Russia is mother to us all!
