Yekteniya



Yekteniya, also known as the Yekteniya Soyuz is a country located in Yastreovakia, in Serapis, bordering the Sanadan Sea. Yekteniya borders Krioniki Sanada, Pakitsk, and Kelilaoria. Yekteniya has a population of 86 Million. The Yekteniya Soyuz is a one party state, solely being governed by the Black League. The Yekteniya Soyuz is made up of 6 States, which make up the Yekteniya Soyuz. The largest state is the Polunscow National Federal State, while the smallest is the Northern Archangelsk Federal State. The nation is very militaristic, with the military aiding in the control of the country, and the military effectively helps rule the nation alongside the Black League. The nation has 3 climate zones - Warm summer humid continental, Subartic, and Tundra. Yekteniya's capital city is Polunoscow, and its largest city is Panihida. Other urban cities include Sverdlovsk, Magadan, Kalimyssk, Krasnygorod, Lyvichi, Toborkuta, and Archangelsk.

Yekteniya was a Republic in the 1800s, and would see itself industrialize and urbanize the largely underdeveloped and largely archaic nation. Eventually, the nation would fall into a revolution and a civil war, in which, the Socialist Republic of Yekteniya was formed and was victories. The nation underwent Postroit', which would see the nation develop even more, causing massive social changes. The nation would enter years of stability, which would eventually end by a economic crash, and a power struggle following the death of the nations leadership. What followed was a radicalization of the regime, and the Great Leap Forward. Eventually, the regime would reform, and enter a short lived golden age, which despite the name, massive issues were still faced in the nation. Eventually the economy would crash once more, and the nation would encounter a coup by the army. The Peoples Republic would form, which would see the nation improving from itself from before. It stagnated eventually, leaving the Black Rebellion, where the Black Guard, aided by the army would take over the nation leaving the formation of the Yekteniya Soyuz.



Yekteniya is derived from the name Yekten, a massive kingdom that inhabited most of modern day Yekteniya. Despite which, the name "Velikiya" was used far more then Yekten. It was only by the 1200s, where Yekten was used far more. Which would eventually be shifted more and more to Yekteniya. The name Velikiya came from the city of Velikiya, where the new Kingdom was formed around. Eventually, Velikiya would be sacked and razed to the ground, leaving the name to fall out of use.

The standard way to refer to a Yekteniya person in English is "Yekteniyi." Despite which, there are two ways to refer to a Yekteniyi person in Yekteniyi. Yekten'kiy (Yekteniyi: Ектенький) is one way to refer to someone as ethnically Yekteniyi. Another way is to refer to someone as Yekteniyi (Yekteniyi: Ектения) which is used to refer to someone that is a citizen of the Yekteniya Soyuz.




History of Yekteniya spans from 1800s - 2021. While this will be summarized, to see more historical related contents, head towards the history factbook. I will most likely be changing this up as an notice.

The Yekteniya Republic



The Yekteniya Republic formed in 1813, and would lead the nation developing new forms of agriculture, new cities, industrialization would begin to take root within the young republic as well. The nation would become more and more developed, and technology, and education would be developed and advanced within the century. Despite which, the nation had its short comings. Due to poor harvests in 1865, and the Republics failure to handle the situation, political radicalization would become more widespread within the nation. The Year of Winter, where the nation would entirely fall into beyond freezing temperatures for a year, leading to the nation being slowed down entirely. The economy of the nation would crash multiple times within the nation, and was entirely common. The assassination of Chelynavsky, the founder of the Yekteniya Far Left would lead to the nation being entirely divided politically. The Republic would find itself on its death in 1902, where the Yekteniya Revolution would begin. What originally began as a revolution eventually caused the formation of the Socialist Republic of Yekteniya and the beginning of the Civil War. The President of the Republic was forcibly removed from power and killed. In 1910, the Socialist Republic became the victor of the Civil War.

The Socialist Republic of Yekteniya



During the first few days of the Socialist Republic, the nation would undergo a period of Postroit' (or 'Build'), where they'd begin rebuilding the nation from the devastation of the civil war, and build up the country from the devastation. During this period, peasant rebellions, and revolts would be an occurrence, most of which would be brutally suppressed. Postroit' would continue on until 1930, leaving the nation in a powerful position militarily, and economically. What followed was the Years of Stability, where the nation would be very stable and would be developing rapidly. The Years of Stability would end in 1965 where the nation would encounter a economic crash and the nation undergoing a political crisis after the death of Premier Vasili Merkushev, and no potential successor. A power struggle would occur. Eventually, Zhonov Grigoriy Valeryevich would win the power struggle. Due to the economic crash and political crisis, the nation had lost a great amount of the development it had made, and the nation was very instable. The Mafia, gangs, and political organizations would grow in the nation and its cities. Underground parties would see themselves growing far more then before as a result of dissatisfaction. Zhonov's rule lead a overall radicalization of the regime, where the regime would begin mass prosecution. The regime would radically change, and would completely reverse from the previous rule of the nation. From 1965 to 1978, Zhonov would consolidate his power. He'd reform the party, and would fully utilize a secret police for his own uses. He'd crush all dissent. In a incident in 1972, a Special Operative would undercover the underground system of political parties, which lead to the liquidation of most underground political parties. With most forces that opposed him crushed, Zhonov would lead the nation to a new era: The Great Leap Forward.

The Great Leap Forward would change Yekteniya society for decades, and even nowadays, its effects are felt across the nation. During this period, Zhonov wanted to fully advance the nation to a new height that it'd never reach previously. The nation would undergo mass industrialization, urbanization, and forcible collectivation. Additionally, mass crackdowns, mass surveillance, and prosecution would be prominent during this era. Zhonov would see himself liquidating and trying people that opposed his rule. He would create a cult of personality of himself. Eventually, it'd end by Zhonov's death by natural means. His successor, Kashirin, would relax the regime completely, and reverse what Zhonov did towards the nation. He'd reverse the Planned Economy and moved it to a private economy. He'd completely relax prosecution and repression while still retaining state control over media and information. Economic reforms continued for 10 years, additionally with political reforms. In a rare move, in 1992, the Socialist Republic of Yekteniya had its first leadership election, in which Kashirin would win power once more. This lead to the fairly short Golden Years of the nation. Where the nation would liberalize, and begin economically flourishing. Despite the name of the era, there would still be mass issues within Yekteniya society, that would still be prevalent in the nation. Eventually, the era would end, and Black Wednesday as it would be known happened. A massive economic crash happened within the nation leading to the complete destabilization of the nation. Many attempts would be made to stabilize the nation, but all would fail, or make the situation worse. Unemployment skyrocketed. Poverty was prevalent throughout the nation. Budget cuts were forcibly done. With the failures of the Socialist Republic to handle the absolute crash that happened beneath them, many people flocked to more ideas, or attempted to rebel. This would lead to 2005, where a military force seized Polunscow, the capital of the Socialist Republic. In a state announcement, Premier Voronkov declared the Socialist Republic to be demolished, and the new "Peoples Republic" had arisen.

The Peoples Republic



The Peoples Republic would encounter its biggest issue; The Economic crisis. Attempts would be made by the Premier to remedy the situation. Surprisingly, it helped made the situation less worse then it was. Despite which, the nation was still plagued by the crisis. The nation would be stable, but there'd still be issues within the nation that would be prominent. Eventually a massive stagnation and crash would further decay the nation. Eventually the Black Rebellion would happen, in which the Army and the Black League would rise up against the Peoples Republic, and take power in the nation.

The Yekteniya Soyuz



During the first years of the Black League, stability and economic reforms were sought. Iosif Pavlov would become the Vozhd of the nation, and would stabilize and economic growth was souht for. The future remains bright for the young regime.

The Vozhd does not have the power to stop or get rid of impeachment decisions. The current Vozhd is Iosif Pavlov.

The Yedinstvo is the legislature of the country. The Yedinstvo is where most of the laws and decisions are finalized and submitted. Additionally, should the Vozhd be inefficient in his rule, the Yedinstvo does have the authority to remove their position. This is largely not done however, due to the popularity of the current Vozhd (Iosif Pavlov, as of 2021) and the power Iosif Pavlov has over the Yedinstvo.

The Soyuz Committee is the central power for all the States within the Union. This Committee is designed to give power to the States, and ensure that all that are apart of the Union have a voice within the government. They are usually headed by representatives from a State.
