Novosibirsk, offically the Federation of Novosibirsk and Altay, is a Russian warlord state located in West Russia. It borders Tomsk to the north, Kemerovo and Oyrotia to the east, Kazakhstan to the south and Omsk to the west.

It is offically a democracy, but in practice it is actually a capitalist oligarchy dominated by a series of government-backed megacorporations.

In-Game Description[edit | edit source]

Centered in and around the largest city in SIberia, the Federation of Novosibirsk and Altay arouse out of the fracturing of the Central Siberian Republic. Under the leadership of the so-called 'Siberian Falcon', the strongman Alexander Pokryshkin, it forms one of the largest and most powerful splinter states in the region.

One of the primary beneficiaries of Bukharin's Siberian Plan, Novosibirsk itself possesses both an enormous population and an equally impressive industrial base, matched in capacity only by the prodigious agricultural lands of Altay. These dual advantages situate the state well, providing a solid economic base from which to grow.

Not all is well, however. The young Federation faces thretaning neighbors, socialist labor agitation, and many decisions regarding the growing influence of elitist groupings within the government - influence strongly opposed by the unofficial 'second man' within the Federation, Vasily Shukshin, the Mayor of Barnaul.

Though none can say for certain whether the federation will weather the many challenges ahead, all agree that, should it correctly leverage the significant advantages granted by both position and history, it could serve as the nucleus of a powerful - and ever expanding - nation.

History[edit | edit source]

The Falcon's Nest[edit | edit source]

The Siberian Falcon[edit | edit source]

From the ashes of the Central Siberian Republic and Bukharin's industrial brainchild within it, the Siberian Plan, arises the Federation.

When anarchists, socialists, and, eventually, insane medievalists shattered the Republic, and the effete idealists in government proved unable to respond effectively, fighter ace and the Republic's former Marshal of Aviation, Alexander Pokryshkin, the 'Siberian Falcon,' took matters into his own hands. Declaring independence from the central government, he proclaimed himself President of the lands in and around Siberia's industrial capital of Novosibirsk, with Altay, which had also declared independence, joining soon after.

Siloviki[edit | edit source]

From that city, Pokryshkin has, in the years subsequent, established a strong foundation for his nation-state. Though his regime is fairly authoritarian, and his administration is dominated by the siloviki, politicians originating from the military and security services, it has provided security from the many hostile forces within the volatile region for the enormous population it encomapsses.

This security has enabled rapid economic expansion, which has in turn led to the rise of the national conglomerates, enormous business firms that are increasingly demonstrating their influence over the young state. Many welcome this change, eager for the wealth promised, but others decry the increasingly authoritarian centralization promoted by the firms' siloviki partisans.

To Raise An Eagle[edit | edit source]

Vasily Shukshin[edit | edit source]

None decry the silovik nature of the Federation moreso than Vasily Shukshin, the Mayor of Barnaul and the second most important man in the Federation, after only Pokryshkin himself.

Extremely popular with the common people, he promises to be a thorn in the side of any attempt to further restrict freedoms in the pursuit of the industrialist or siloviki agendas. And besides such internal challenges, many external ones exist as well.

Not Just a Province[edit | edit source]

And besides such internal challenges, many external ones exist as well.

Novosibirsk is a prize that all within Siberia would, and will, kill to acquire. If the Federation is to survive the coming storm, its leadership must leverage the advantages of location, industry, and population with which it has been blessed - or risk becoming little more than a province within another nation.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Novosibirsk starts with the following national spirits:

Name In-Game Description Effects
Disproportionate Retribution Novosibirsk has always been one of the most developed and densely populated regions across the Urals, as a hub to the Far East and a crucial link on the Trans-Siberian Railway. The city was already one of the biggest in Siberia when the Great Patriotic War broke out, but the conflict itself made it grow even more.Thousands fled the German occupation, or simply the chaos that unfolded in Russian lands, and they arrived in Novosibirsk, which was soon crowded with civilians. This can be both a blessing and a curse, but it is something we have to live with. Monthly Population: +10.0%

The All-Siberian Army The army that is responsible for the protection of the region of Novosibirsk is easily one of the most powerful and prestigious in Central Siberia. When the Siberian Falcon split from the Tomsk government to save himself and his people from the horrors of war, a large fraction of the army of the Central Siberian Republic pledged their loyalty to Pokryshkin, and soon reorganized in the south.The All-Siberian Army has managed to reform into a force capable of rivalling even the largest neighbors of our warlord state, and the experience many men have from the Great Patriotic War and the Siberian War has proven invaluable.

The Novosibirsk Aircraft Plant (NOTE: This spirit will be granted to any warlord that owns the Novosibirsk state)

A major producer of both complete aircraft as well as their constituent parts, Novosibirsk and its aircraft plants are capable of rapidly producing a considerable air fleet. Control of the city and plants will allow the state to apply this production towards its own aerial objectives.

The Flight East Though the West Russian War ended almost a decade ago, Western Russia has never known peace with the Germans. Instead, life has been punctuated by regular bombings from the Luftwaffe, an unending campaign of terror meant to permanently hobble a one-time adversary.

Though many Russians have found ways to live amid this violence, others have tried to escape it by fleeing east. This steady stream of refugees has permanently altered the distribution of Russia's population, with many migrating to the far reaches of the country that remain untouched by the Nazi war machine.

Monthly Population: +5.0%
Legacy of the Siberian Plan Our statelet lies in a unique region of Russia - the former area that Bukharin's, and later the Central Siberian Republic's, grand industrial project was sited. Securing machinery and infrastructure and rebuilding sectors of the Siberian Plan will provide great boons to our statelet. Production Efficiency Cap: +5.00%
