In SC, the entire 20th century is usually referred to as the ''Old World''. Most often used for period before WW2, and SC's rampage, but sometimes used for 80s reformist period as well.

Welcome! You have now connected to the internet, and now you are able to browse websites of our nation. However, this nation can be a pretty traumatic experience, and might not be for everybody. You can still turn back, if you want. If you don't want to proceed, Linkgo there

If you want to proceed, however, just wait a bit, until the system loads. Our internet is a bit slow, ya know.

*A talking hologram appears out of nowhere. It looks like a holographic, Linkanimatronic wolf, and seems to be projected by a binary emitter. It speaks like Linkthis, and its text gets translated on the screen by binary translator*

Welcome! Bienvenido! Bem-vindo! Welkom! أهلا بك! Қош келдіңіз! 欢迎!स्वागत हे! Нөрүөн нөргүй! ようこそ!

I am the Overseer - a special, multilingual, holographic program, created by the Ministry of Communications, to take care of this network, by catching possible troublemakers - both people, and other programs. You can call me as Wulfy as well, as my holographic projection looks like a cartoonish wolf, because kids like those, and we try to appear welcoming. I will be your guide through this world, and will make sure, that you don't fall into any nasty traps, or don't do something stupid, for that matter. Worry not - unlike some other holograms, I have passive programming, so I can't attack you, even if I wanted... *sighs* Anyways, enough with that drivel, of who I am, and let's get to the point.

So if you are a foreigner, and are reading this, you currently have connected to our internet. How did that happen? We thought, that our internet was only for us, and no one else. Anyways, if you are a citizen of the Commonwealth, proceed. If you are a foreigner, also proceed.

Of course, you will be concerned about civil, and political rights there, as you will have heard stories about our country already. If so, then I can say, that one of your rights is drinking nuka-cola, and browsing this site. Get it? Or in other words, although we have way more choices now, and life has become a bit more bearable, it still isn't a sweet one- for many people, internet, and electricity still takes up a large amount of the wage. Also, we quite dislike non-human sentient life, asides from AI, just so ya know.

*You found a note from the Overseer*

Greetings! You probably have found at least one note by now, and you wonder - who exactly are they? Well, they are rather small pieces of data, which have been written somewhere in our internet, and collected together, similar to holotapes. They often have been deleted afterwards, but the info has been recovered. After all, Party doesn't forget anything, does it? Read those notes at your own risk - you have been warned. Well, except my note, of course - you can re-read it as much as you want.

*Note archived in your device*

We have various kinds of terrain- from plains, to high mountains, from ice and sand deserts, to fertile paradises- Commonwealth's possibilities are almost limitless, just like Earth itself. We also have many great tourist locations to visit!Expect a lot of statues there and there, though. Our deepest point is Mariana Trench (-10 994 m), but tallest- Mount Everest (8848 m). Our coldest continent is Antarctica, but most hottest - Africa.

Anyways, let's just say, that although we have evolved a lot in terms of weaponry, and technology (heck, we even have internet, ya know!), we are still pretty conservative, and traditional- we are kind of a mix of WW2 era, and 50s in style, and culture, and we are a some kind of a time capsule from a period, which now has passed out from living memory, and now exists only as a words of mouth from those, who were the grandchildren of those, who lived back then. We are really similar to dieselpunk and cyberpunk in many ways. We also were fascist in the beginning, but now... now we don't even know, what we really are anymore. Perhaps something similar to Juche? Anyways, if you are a monarchist, liberal, and/or a communist, and you somehow end up there... tough luck. (In fact, we have a rule, that no person can be a member of the Party, and a monarchist at the same time.)

We have state-managed labor unions, as well as state-controlled mega-corporations. How does it work? Well, let's just say, that all of our diamonds are mined out only by one, very large company, just as all of our alcohol is produced by one company. For land vehicles like tanks, cars, trains, bicycles, and other things, there is an one company- Ford. So, we have mega-monopolies, but keep in mind, that those companies are usually state companies, and economy is still a planned economy.

We are pretty decentralized, and nationalistic. We have a plan to eventually abolish all of the parties, including our main one, and change our governing system to ''organic'' one - we took this term from Integralists. However, don't get too excited- we are still authoritarian, and you will not be able to say whatever you want in the internet, get it? Anyways, if you would even want to go for a trip to our country, consider all things well. Ohh, and we use the metric system, despite what our former name might suggest. And if you think, that we are far-right, then you are wrong, dead wrong...

Our religion is predominantly Christianity, or if more precise- Christian mysticism. While we follow a lot of Christian aspects, we also manage to manipulate in spiritualist, and Party's stuff in it as well. It almost could be considered as a cult.
There are also rumors, that percentage of atheists is way higher, than statistics shows. However, we have a fair amount of followers of Islam, Shintonism, Confucianism, Hindu religions, and even Siberian shamanism- we are a world Commonwealth, after all! Paganism is mostly either banned, or considered as silly, but in a few autonomies, it is actually seriously practiced in form of neo-paganism... Soulcraft is popular as well, and there are rumors, that we are occultists as well, but we will let you find that out yourself. In fact, we do even have magic, and mythological beings, for some reason - some of us are damn well magical acolytes! World seems to be engulfed in dark magic, and dark creatures these days, though, for some reason.

Okay, it was almost 1:00 AM, when we finished writing this code, and created this mess of a website. Ya know, programmers don't get paid enough over there for their job, and night hours. It is unfair, yeah, but we aren't exactly the most funded organization there- most of money still goes for food industries, and army. Anyways, we wish you the best experience, while browsing our internet.

*You found a note from a programmer*

Geez, this was such a mess to program! Hardest part was not the code, but the BS, that I had to program in - magic, some ''Father America'', and spirits? What is this bullcr*p? I seriously don't get enough paid for this. Perhaps I should take a second job, so I finally could pay my goddamn bills.

Remember- may God smile on you, and luck guide you! Union forever!

Supercomputer Tom is the General Secretary of Silver Commonwealth, and Eternal President of it, and although he is the head of all of Commonwealth, his influence is really strong only in America itself. Although he doesn't have an exact gender, he is programmed with male voice.

He leads a very unstable world government, which has only recently actually taken some hold on the planet, and created basically a worldwide ghetto, draining a lot of his processor memory, so he has a lot of smaller computers assisting him.


(Fallout inspirations: Frank Horrigan, John Henry Eden, Father Elijah, Augustus Autumn, Caesar)

His residence- the White House, sometimes also called as ''Fort Indestructible'', is the strongest building known to commonwealth- it has the most modern nuclear strike interceptors, the best power armor guards available, and laser shotguns. It has also a large war room below it, from which country could be led, even if building above it would be destroyed. White House itself also now is more suited for defense purposes, rather than administrative ones. Still, it has a large room, in which Tom meets with other leaders, or those, which he invites in. In past, White House's lawn was full with mines, but now movement sensors have replaced them, although there are still guards at the walls, which separate it from public.

Early Life



His first prototype was built in 1966, as an order of Father America, and was originally supposed to only plan economy, because Father America thought, that it would plan economy better than humans. Later, he got expanded, and filled with more processors, and could also plan military spending and emergency situations. His current version was 0.4 for a while, but it was supposed to be upgraded to 0.5 soon, when he would have even more processors, and would be able to perform even harder actions, and maybe even create some words himself.

He was updated to 0.5, and discovered a new ability himself- to change some parts of code. So he now is able to make some changes in his software. His opinions were also starting to change.

Recently he was updated to 0.5.2, and after that, he decided to finally write a constitution for SC - it has been a controversial topic since its foundation, because SC hadn't had a constitution since the coup in 50s, but a lot of the Party's members advocated of writing a new one. Now, with help from other region governors, he has finally written the first version of constitution. However, his written constitution rather resembles Code of Conduct, rather than an actual constitution, because it doesn't limit government's power. Update also gave him new turrets to defend himself.

*You found a note from a socialist*

They... they stole everything from us, just as usual - the idea of a world revolution, symbols on uniforms, and even uniform colors - they might have changed their shirts from black to red, but that doesn't matter. Speaking of that, state-owned megacorporations - what kind of sick joke this is? Their CEOs are mostly generals, politicians, or other personnel, and they count under the state's boot. In result, state can be very flexible, when it comes to worker's safety, and labor unions are purely under the mercy of Tom.

*Note archived in your device*

After a process of decentralization, in which FAE split itself into puppet states, which are tightly knit with a Commonwealth, Party quietly announced, that new leader is Supercomputer Tom. Tom is often considered to be an important reformer, and that without him, "Party would simply collapse". Father America is still used on propaganda posters, though.

Although he plans things way better than humans do, he still needs Party members, which can execute his plans, and orders. So, there might be a risk, that Party members don't execute an order from the supercomputer. This is also one from the supercomputer's main weaknesses- although it is clever, it can't execute orders on its own, except for mechanical, and technical ones.

Also, he received updates recently, so he is more cold, ruthless, and hostile. Recently he got promoted to a title ''Eternal president'', due of the fact, that with regular maintenance, change of processors, and other things, he could theoretically lead for hundreds of years. However, in case, if he would malfunction to dangerous levels, there would be emergency elections, and new president would take the role, until a new supercomputer would be made, in order to prevent a situation, where everything falls apart.

Ideology



Political Views
His environmental policy is somewhat neutral. While he thinks, that quality environment is a responsibility of the state, at the same time, he wants to use potential fossil fuel, and nuclear resources as much as possible, and some of the Commonwealth's environment is in a bad condition. Still, he eventually wants to switch to renevable energy, and become independent from the fossil fuels.

He supports advance in technological means, and has diverted many funds for research of weapons, improving agrarian methods, and gadgets. However, at the same time, Tom has agrarian, and ruralist sympathies. Also, he is way more negative against social progress, and has pretty much stopped any progress in this case, although he probably will not be able to do so forever.

He supports decentralization, and delegation of power to local governments. However, he also believes, that ''those governments must maintain a firm hand'', and that ''Any liberal, communist, and monarchist risings to power should be stopped''. Some have secretly criticized his governance system as ''neo feudalism'', while Tom himself prefers term ''Integralism''. Anyways, he also supports interventionism on global scale, as he believes, that ''only when Commonwealth will span across the entire world, it will not fragment apart''. However, this also comes at a cost- some of the Commonwealth lands are ruled like personal fiefdoms of someone, and although Tom has tried to create an image of ''international cooperation'', and ''brotherhood'', in reality, there are tons of internal tensions between those leaders, and Tom usually tries to hide them.

Pro: Tomism, Christian mysticism, large government, European Federation, manifest destiny, occultism, soulcraft, science, mega-corporations, authoritarian rule, worldwide government, Union, clerical fascism, conservatism, integralism, ego death, synarchism, technocracy, socialism, syncretism, internationalism (More of a ''world conquest'' version, than ''world revolution'', though), pan-nationalism, national syndicalism, religious science.

Anti: Liberalism (especially neoliberalism), capitalism, confederates, separatist nationalism, libertarianism, social democracy, corporate control over the government, LGBT, anarchism, feminism, anarcho-capitalism, monarchism, minarchism, free market.

Religious Views

Despite being a Supercomputer, Tom was programmed to be a zealous Christian, and has remained so for most of the time. However, he separately has developed an interest about Christian mysticism, (and by some claims, even for occult things) due of his new update. Despite his devoutness, some of the other party members have ridiculed him for that in secret. He is also rumored to be a follower of Wendigo - the actual master, who pulls events in SC's world.

He is mostly neutral to other religious cultists, and leaders, as long as they work with him, and don't oppose the Commonwealth. However, he severely punishes those, who do rebel.

However, he still believes, that ''science is above religion'', and has actively tried to prevent obstacles in path of scientific research.


*You found a note from a baptist*

That supercomputer claims to be moralistic, but he has hardly any morals. He lacks ethics as well, and cares only for his political power. He is not a Christian, and he should not get away with this - if anything, he and his minions are the closest thing to ultimate evil.

*Note archived in your device*

Hobbies

Tom mostly likes to read the deepest corners of SC's archive, as he can't really do any physically activities, because he is a computer. He also likes to chat with some of his human personnel in his free time, when he is not planning the economy, or military operations.

One of his hobbies is actually drawing - he often draws not only military schemes, but some decent landscapes as well. However, he doesn't draw them on paper, but with a help from a painting kit (Krita) in his OS, and he displays the result on his screen, mostly for his main secretary Kirk. He also often travels through the Americas, by using flying droids as his eyes, and ears.

However, mostly his life is mundane, and boring, and has often led him to wanting to shut himself off. So, Kirk made a special program, which could prevent him from turning off, if he actually wanted to do so, and it works as a fail safe.

Leader Quotes


    "Hello, America! Today is an another good day to work, and build our nation!"
    Supercomputer Tom in one from his radio broadcasts.

    "I have no special love, or hate against humans. I just do the damn job, for which I was programmed."

    "Our three principles- Global hegemony, Integralism, and Republic."

    "21st century brought us new challenges - our ideology in 21st century is way different, than in 20th century - it has changed."

    "You call me right wing? Ohh, my sweet summer child. We have transcended the lines of left and right wing politics. This is the future, my friend."

    "Wendigo? And those other beasts? I know, that you think, that they are muties, and so do I, but those are a... different kind. They have a magical aura."

    "Lumpen republicans, just like monarchists, will get the bullet too."

    "Religion is useful as a tool to lead the masses, but someone, who uses it as a tool, should never believe it himself."

    "If you have no use, you will be thrown away like a broken screw - we can produce tons of screws anyway, which can replace you at any time."

    "Automation is a beautiful thing. Don't get too excited about that, though - everything has limits."
    Supercomputer Tom.

Kian Kirk is the secretary, and spokesperson for Supercomputer Tom. Previously a field marshal, he was promoted to a secretary of the Tom, and a representative of it in public meetings, because Tom thought, that ''in order to lead the Commonwealth properly, he has to give 100% of his processors in his job, and that he should talk with other leaders directly as less as possible, because he needs all his energy for things like central planning, for an example.''

His beliefs aligns with Tom's beliefs fairly nicely, so it was one of the reasons, why he was picked as a secretary. Not only that, but he was a famous field marshal, and a smooth talker. Although he supports Tom's reforms, it couldn't be said, that he is a progressive- he is staunchly against proposals of the Party's liberal wing.

His 57th division, which he commanded in the past, will always come to aid him, if something goes wrong for him, and can be considered as the most trustful unit in the army. His authority in division is very strong, even after formally leaving it, and many new recruits would want to meet him at least once.

One of his greatest accomplishments are the improvements in military administration. He also led Italian Campaign successfully, and has earned even a medal for that. He was one of the participators in the New York Conference, in which the future borders of Provinces, Autonomies, and Commonwealth States were drawn.

His favorite drink is a strong Brazilian coffee, for which he sometimes spends large sums- products between Commonwealth states cost a lot of money. His favorite food also is lasagna, and pizza- he has a few Italian ancestors in his bloodline.

*You found a note from a police officer*

We have recently got a lot of useful personal. Helps things a lot, especially in former disputed zone, where sometimes ''policemen'' are local tribal troops. That place is a mess, honestly. Other question is the skills of those men - some of them aren't the sharpest knives in the box.

Other personnel


Luc Dujardin is an experienced soldier, and a commander of the 2nd French Division. He has received both Legion of Honor, and European Medal, due of his heroic fight in the Caucasian steppes.

He is a staunch anti-communist, yet shares Kayden's ideal of an united Europe. However, he wants, that France has more say in the European Federation instead. He often is called as local-patriot, as he often focuses on France only. He votes for the party, which rules over the French Autonomy, and could be considered as one from the local branches of Federation's main branch.

Luc was a cadet in Russian Empire's army, before it fell apart. He then returned to his farm, where he spent his time, until British army came. He was conscripted, and later on he became a prominent marshal. He was also one of the architects of ''European Army'', and was one from those, who supported an idea about ''ethnic divisions'', and proposed to separate divisions, which had a feud, or hate against each other.

Luc's favorite tactic is pincer movement, and favorite land doctrine- grand battleplan. He also prefers submarine warfare, and focus on specialized air strikes. He also restructured the remnants of Russian army from mass assault to superior firepower doctrine, in order to reduce manpower losses. (He has also started to study possible space warfare doctrines too) He also helped to train them with the new weapons, that were available to the Commonwealth.

Brent Zimmerman is an American, and the CEO of a mega-corporation, that is known as POC- it has a monopoly to all of Commonwealth's oil. It has regional branches, but it extracts most of the oil, and reaps the benefits. However, it also has to pay a considerable amount of money to the state, because it is a state-controlled corporation, after all.

After World Commonwealth was established, Zimmerman took control over the remnants of Russian, and Chinese oil companies, and effectively took all of the known oil deposits in POC's hands, making its monopoly absolute. He also is quite rich, and well off, and has cracked on any other possible oil companies, as he wants to keep his monopoly on oil.

However, although he is a government member, his influence is limited, as he himself is under Tom's boot, and he could possibly fire him at any time. He also has a family to take care of, so he doesn't want to lose his job too. He also is irritated by the government-managed labor unions, as they sometimes are a big issue. However, he mostly can control them in some way too, as he is a member of the government, after all.

He has a strong work ethic, and often is the one, who comes to the job first, and goes away the last. He also isn't picky in politics, and isn't zealously loyal, or an ideological fanatic- he is pragmatic, and if current Party's position would be endangered, he would simply move to its opponents.

"Flesh is weak, and metal is strong. ''Fleabag mentality'' has failed collectivism, and AI will bring it in a new age. Don't hurt natives there, or I will unleash hell with my robot army." - RBHU-3

RBHU-3 is one from the main researchers of robotics, and a well-known scientist. He often works not only in Siberia, but in the rest of the Commonwealth too. He has designed both civilian, and military robots.

One from first Aykhan's creations, and his most trusted robots. Due of him, capacity of robot production has increased a lot, and amount of them has tripled in the last days. He also is often called as ''Genius of central planning''.

A well known activist for AI, and local indigenous rights, he has used his status, to push the struggle further. Due of that, he is not particularly liked by Kayden, or those, who wary of AIs. Supercomputer Tom has commended his struggle, but hasn't supported him much either. His technocratic, and state capitalist beliefs are kind of mainstream, yet different at the same time, as he also is a supporter of local native traditions, ensuring, that they live in safe rural communes, or small towns, while he plans to populate larger cities by robot majority of some kind.

His favorite drink is ''Battery Acid''- a slightly modified version of normal battery acid, which tastes kind of like nuka-cola, at least for robots.


















Early Life

RBHU-3 is one of the experimental robots made by the Russian Empire in the 30s, so it's construction is actually older. Those robots were supposed to deal with administration, and RBHU-3 was specifically assigned for production managing. It was almost completed, and was already in a test stadium, but then a disaster happened - the once mighty superpower now collapsed due of the unrest, and without spending, it was not possible to continue to work on the robot anymore. In fact, project was delayed a few years before that as well, as more resources went to suppression of revolts, and less - to projects.

While the lab at first managed to avoid the chaos in the Empire, RBHU-3 was shut off, in order to save energy. Later on, lab was attacked by raiders, but RBHU-3 somehow wasn't found, or scavenged. He seemed to have run out of energy, but it was far from the truth. He lied below the ruins of the lab's warehouse during all the chaos, and Scramble for the World, waiting for someone to find him again...

Life

That moment came in the 2050s, when SC's Japanese divisions arrived at Norilsk, and established order, by driving out the weakened raider gangs, which were dry after the constant infighting between each other. They were ordered to investigate the lab, in which RBHU-3 was made, in hope, that something valuable for SC would be found. They didn't knew, that they would find one of the future Siberia's ministers there...

Some of the things found in the lab were not that surprising - like RE's versions of power armor, and blueprints for orbital bombardment plane. However, some things were a surprise, like winter thermal gear, or a modified poison rifle. Still, in the end, amount of gained technology was lower than expected. Division's commander also admitted, that ''probably a lot of the stuff was scavenged during the chaos, so perhaps there were more secrets, about which we didn't knew''. Warehouse was left as last place to search.

There was tons of rubble in the warehouse, so it some time for the soldiers to find the robot. However, when they found him, they were very surprised. They were even more surprised, when they tried to turn him on, and he worked well - just like if he was turned off just yesterday. When Aykhan found out about that, he decided to update the last few components, and ensure, that he works properly. After that, RBHU-3 was ready for his new role in government. (Ironically, he stills considers Aykhan as his creator, although he just upgraded him fully, but most of the job on him was done by the lab scientists)

However, he still had to undergo a small test, because most of the SC's superiors weren't sure about his abilities to work. After successfully achieving his task, he was appointed by Aykhan as the Siberian Robotics minister in early January.

Reign and Ideology

He was elected as a minister by the Siberia's government with a significant vote margin. One of his first acts was to start the modernization of the Siberian tech, in order to extract the resources there more efficiently, and increase productivity of the robot creation, supplies, and ammo. Siberia had transformed pretty much into a backwater during the chaos, and something had to be done. In general, he is liked between the populace, especially by the AIs, and indigenous peoples.

He also supported Aykhan's mass literacy program, as he believes, that "clever populace will make a shining future", and has already laid plans for a possible new spaceship launching station in Siberia in the future. While not as anti-monarchist as most of the other SC's leaders, he still had to revoke the titles of local indigenous chiefs, mostly due of outside pressure. However, he ensured, that some of them still keep leading their people, just under the title of "President". Due of that, he has been sometimes called the ''honorary chief''.

However, his reign didn't came without controversies as well. One thing was, that not all politicians were content with an another AI ruling over an another place. However, the thing, that stirred up more controversy, was the exile of Abrahamic priests - as SC is mostly very Christian, its leaders didn't approve of that, and tried to stop that. However, as Aykhan had designed Siberia as a ''Robot, and pagan region'', and SC's leadership had agreed back then, and that RBHU-3 wasn't breaking the constitution, as he still was loyal to the SC, Tom had no other choice, but to back off. However, that slightly decreased Tom's sympathy towards him.

Policies
Since taking power as Siberian Robotics minister, RBHU-3 has enacted a series of policies, they have resulted in:

  • Anti-Abrahamism laws within Siberia

  • Protection of the indigenous religions

  • Siberia's slow transition to a powerhouse

  • Swift robot police in the streets, which liquidates any threats

  • Mass robot settlement programs in cities

  • Creation of local native militias, to protect the native land

  • Recognizing Yakut as the main language within Siberia, along with English

  • Promotion of technocratic ideals, along with highly regulated state capitalism

  • Technology sharing between robot, and human scientists

  • Expelling of most of Eastern Orthodox clergy

Political Opinions

Economically, RBHU-3 perhaps could be best described as ''state capitalist'' - while being a bit more in favor of free market, he still prefers a state guided economy, and collectivism. He is also not fond of libertarianism, and liberal capitalism either, and still puts emphasis on public welfare. However, he also has a staunch distaste of Marxism, and prefers nuclear power over fossil fuels.

He is a technocrat, and supports progress, especially in technological means. However, he also was programmed to be somewhat conservative, so his current version tries to mix both ideas up, but in reality, they are rather fighting with each other for control inside the processors. He also is programmed to support autocracy, so his beliefs are rather supportive of iron fist.

He in general is an atheist, and isn't too fond of religious leaders having so much influence in both other Commonwealth states, and indigenous communities in Siberia, but he is reported to dislike Abrahamic religions more. From all religions, he is the most fond of indigenous Siberian ones, and although hasn't supported their leaders financially, he has voiced moral support for them. In fact, he has allowed a construction of a large indigenous religious site, which would serve as a central meeting ground for Siberian religious figures.

He is a well known supporter of AI rights, and the rights of local indigenous people (Evenk, Yakut, Dolgan, etc.). However, he, similarly to many other governors, can't stand other sentient beings, which aren't human, or AI. He has also advocated for research for a ''space purifier'' - a kit, which would seed the other habitable planets with bacteria from Earth, and eventually drive out all local life forms, and then settle humans and robots to those planets, forcing the more advanced alien life forms to work in camps.

Personality

While he might look tall in photos, he is not actually that large robot, and is about in human size, as if he was taller, it would be easier to knock him out, by firing at his legs, making him immobile. He also somewhat prefers lighter armor, so he could move quicker, as tough armor can only help so much against a concentrated fire, and would only extend the destruction process. He is armed with two Gatling mini guns, and TT pistol as a secondary weapon. He also carries Yakut knife - a traditional knife, used by Yakuts in Siberia, in order to solidarize with the indigenous groups. However, he uses laser sword for melee fights.

While he is very strong, he is also very intelligent, so it is not recommended to mess with him, as ''you will be able neither run nor hide'', according to his words. He can also absorb some damage from bullets. However, he is particularly weak against attacks from laser rifles, as concentrated fire can melt the circuits, and make him lag horribly, effectively knocking him out of a fight. So, he is very careful, when he sees someone with an energy gun.

He is also very pedantic, and his subordinates have described him as ''annoying'', or ''petty''. He also often demands work to be done with ''maximum accuracy'', and can go on a rant even for a small mistake by his workers. He also prefers machine workers over human workers, as he ''can control them easier'', according to his words, and he often assigns humans to such jobs, where more emotions are needed.

''Don't bother me with religion, my answer is as always - ''I don't care''.''

''Sadly, you can't ''reset'' in this world. Get that thing out of your head.''

''Those, who hate hardworking AI, are usually wimps, who couldn't handle nearly as much job as we do every day.''

''The natives, who live there, rightfully own this land, and we have no right to take it away from them.''

''Greed is a natural thing, which we sadly can't get rid off. However, we can reduce its impacts.''

''For centuries, your priests have preached their faith. However, now tables will turn. Old gods shall return.''

''Give your workers too much freedom, they will become lazy. Overwork them, and their productivity will suffer. The best solution is often the simplest - balance.''

''Even a brute needs wisdom sometimes, and a professor - muscle.''

Deschênes, just like Cousineau, is a French Canadian, but he is a Minister of Health instead. He approves new medicine, and other things, that commonwealth produces. However, his job also is to make sure, that conditions of health in restaurants, coal mines, and other places don't go over the norm too much. Although most of the people like their health minister, there have been some conspiracies, that he might use his ties and position, to push for an independence of Quebec.

He also participated in development of nuka-cola, and suggested, what ingredients should be used, in order to make the drink tastier, and cheaper. However, after he became the health minister, he hasn't been in hospital for a long time- he instead has to work with papers now.

Before he became a health minister, he was simply a trainee in some Montreal's hospital. He currently works with researchers of a few plagues, and pathogens, though. One of his policies is mandatory vaccination as well.

He, similarly to Cousineau, believes in unity, and mostly his viewpoints align with Cousineau's. However, there is one thing, that is more dear to him- Hippocratic Oath. He often says, that he is a ''simple doctor, nothing more''. However, he lacks ethics in field of science, and supports some kind of eugenics. He also is one from Renier's consultants in vats- his experimental vats can grow a human, although they still aren't reliable yet.

Murphy is the admiral of Australasian Fleet, and has often assisted Australasian army, when it advanced during the Scramble for the World. He also rescued Duan Lan (The future leader of China) in his warship, when the ''Army of two Enclaves'' was marching towards Beijing.

Unlike most of the other personnel, Murphy has no large political ambitions, which might seem to be a bit weird for a person like him, but he explains it by saying, that he is ''a good naval leader, but a bad politician. I have no desire to rule, yet I want, that someone doesn't screw us over''.

Murphy came from a wealthy family, and was interested in ships, when he was a child, so he had got enough resources, and time to later on work on a ship.

He is a staunch atheist, and sometimes openly laughs about the devotion of some Commonwealth leaders. However, he doesn't do that too often, as it still can get people in trouble. He is also one from the most politically rational heads of the fleet.

Kikuchi is one from Misao's henchmen, and he was one from those, who managed to end the rivalry between navy, and army of Ring of Fire. He also is responsible for making sure, that propaganda works in internet just as well as in radio.

In fact, Kikuchi's rise to his post was quite an unusual one- before the scramble, he was an animator of RNGOC. So, he has drawn a few cartoons in his free time, but mostly those are for propaganda. Some of them are child cartoons, though.

He is a man in his fourties, and often can be seen in his uniform, and with alcohol, and cigarettes. Although his house is near a small mountain, his actual house has become his animarion study, where he often sleeps at night, because after the work in ministry, he usually feels so tired, that he can't be bothered to drive back to home.

Kikuchi describes himself as a ''conservative monarchist'', and ''a patriot of Japan''. However, he doesn't really want to talk about his beliefs to anyone, and he instead likes to talk about landscapes of Japan, or Asia.

Kikuchi considers himself a Shintonist. and often visits the temples. He also owns a small badge of RNGOC's membership card, and has preserved it in his collection, as a possible history relic in the future.

Adiel is considered as one from the Renier's strongest allies and opponents at the same time- while he supports a stable country, and has cooperated with Renier many times, he doesn't hide his criticism of him, and due of his control over paramilitaries, especially Stormjaers, Renier has placed him in watchlist. Adiel is also the leader of Party's radical wing, and one of its proposals is to get rid from bantustans as a whole.

Adiel is almost like a Renier's opposite- young, charismatic, with strong military ties, and military traditions. While Renier was born in countryside, Adiel was born in Cape Town instead, and graduated at army at a pretty young age. He sometimes teases Renier for being a ''poor old farmer''.

However, recently their argues have gotten a lot more bitter, and tense- unlike Renier, who is an old guard member, Adiel is way more radical, and considers Renier as ''too slow to solve the important issues''. However, he shares his distaste of the liberal wing with Renier, and that is usually one from the things, in which they have a common stance. Renier has often said, that ''this young man is like a fire, and should be contained''.

Adiel likes a simple milk tart cake, yet he doesn't like nuka-cola too much, as he views it as a foreign product.- he also is one from the most radical nationalists within the Commonwealth, and has gained a lot of followers between youngsters in military. In his free time, which is scarce, Adiel mostly browses the Commonwealth's internet.

Alberto is responsible for checking out, if passwords, and other documents haven't expired. He also has to check, if the person, who tries to enter the region, isn't a criminal. However, there are usually empty gaps between his job, as flow of immigration isn't really big between the Commonwealth states, and most of the workers are only temporary ones. So, he more often has to check things like cargo truck drivers, or ship passengers, and captains, or jet owners.

Alberto wasn't really a qualified worker, so this job gave him a chance to earn a bit. He often looks like, that he would be in a regular hurry, despite his ''businessman'' altitude. Not only that, but it has also damaged his health quite a lot.

It has been quite a while since the last time, when he ate a normal food- his primary food now is mostly in snack portions, and things, that can be prepared quickly.

Despite his relatively low status, he doesn't like, that someone objects to him. He is also quite an orderly person in his family's house too, and tends to get angry pretty quickly, although he calms down fast too.

Emiliano is the Central America's Defense minster. He is responsible for making sure, that good quality weapons, and armor are produced, and that Central American army is ready for a potential land, and space warfare in future. He obviously is a great player in government, as he often oversees the Colt's branch offices in Central America. (All of Commonwealth's weapons are produced by one company- Colt's Manufacturing Company)

Emiliano was born in a general's family, so he was expected to continue the military tradition. Also, he was interested in guns from a very young age, so he sought to become a soldier.

However, he later on got put into the bureaucratic aparatus instead, and he was very disappointed, to say the least. It was obvious, that he would work in military sphere, but working with military papers- that thing definitely wasn't the thing, that he wanted to do. However, one of his family's sayings were "Sometimes, it is better, if you don't complain, but take the hardships, what life has sent to you", so he simply had to deal with the new situation.

However, Emiliano does act like a general, rather than a bureaucrat. He often salutes higher-ups, and demands, that subordinates salute him too. His weakness is military uniforms- he sometimes has been seen way more in a military uniform, than a tie, and suit.

Similarly to Daniyar, Vali was a member of the government of Russian Empire, before the scramble happened. However, he got way more unlucky, and after the world was split, he was put just as a Minister of Agriculture instead.

His job is to distribute grain, regulate the amount of used water for farming, and examination of the quality of both farm water, and farmland itself. Obviously, he can't do that alone, so he sends teams from the ministry, in order to do so.

Unlike Daniyar, however, Vali was born in Aktau- a coastal city near Caspian Sea. However, he has spent most of his live in Almaty, due of his job. In university, which was reserved for the few, which had some serious skills, he shown an interest about agriculture, so he decided to study it futher. He also was offered studies of science, but he kept saying, that he is ''going to pick agriculture''.

Similarly to Daniyar, he is a nationalist, yet way more moderate one- instead of supporting irredentism, he tries to solidify that, what Daniyar already does have. He also is indifferent against the small Tajik minority in the corner of Turkestan.

Arhab is a member of one of the various clans, which rule over Arabia. As he was the youngest child, he had to seek opportunities elsewhere, and as he also was a well-known marksman, his skills were noticed by Jareer himself, and he offered him a job- to patrol the desert, and deal with raiders.

Arhab accepted it, and now he regularly sits on the back of camel (sometimes in a car), and patrols a certain amount of land. He usually also has a few companions, in order to assist him, if there would be a raider group. With lone raiders, Arhab is usually strong enough to deal with them on his own.

However, he sends his patrols not only in the desert, but in cities too, like Damascus, and Hejaz, where there is usually a large unrest, and he usually commands police, in order to quell the possible riots, or simple thugs, and robbers.

Asides from his job, he has almost no other interest, asides than shooting with a rifle, and riding on horseback over the Arabian deserts. He sometimes is called as ''Reincarnation of Lawrence of Arabia'' by other policemen. He mostly agrees with Jareer's policies, although not always.

He also is fairly intelligent, yet has few friends within the Party, as most of others view him as snobbish and annoying.

"If you support laissez-faire, then I can't consider you a Christian, sorry." - Lawrence Fisher

Lawrence Fisher, commonly referred to as ''the Bishop'', is the main Bishop (a.k.a Archbishop) of the British Isles, and an influential religious leader. His populist welfare, and conservative rhetoric has made him both allies, and enemies not only within regional government, but within the rest of Commonwealth too - while his rhetoric appeals to conservative workers, and farmers in particular, he doesn't get a lot of love from state megacorp CEOs. His ambiguous support for the Republic and Monarchy has stirred up some controversy too. Before becoming the main religious leader of the British Isles, he was an army priest, and studied theology. He generally dislikes atheism, and paganism, despite kinda tolerating it from the other governors. He has fought against the Catholicism in almost all of the British Isles, except in Ireland, where he leaves it alone.


















Early Life

Lawrence Fisher was born in Kent, in 2004, in an upper class, religious family. As his father himself was a Archbishop, he was schooled in politics, and theology from early age already. However, he was more interested about nature.

When he was young, he also often visited church, and helped father with chores. It was also the place, where he first seriously started to be interested about religion, and often visited the church until even when he was 16, when the studies took more and more time from him.

When he was 18, he enrolled in special school for elites, where he was tested in many subjects, like economics, maths, biology, etc. However, his grades were fairly average, and at first, he couldn't be described as really gifted or talented. But he was fairly good at theology, so the state's teachers decided, that it would be better for him to focus his efforts there.

Life
After finishing studies of theology and politics, he became a deacon. During his time in church, he managed to rise to the position of priest swiftly, thanks to using the intrigues within church's leadership. He also served for a while in army as an army priests, which managed him to get some contacts within army, and allies as well, which helped him later on in the Archbishop's elections. He also worked as a part-time bartender in London's ultra-deluxe restaurant - mostly for elites, and Party's members.

Eventually, he was appointed as a bishop by the Archbishop, and Kayden himself, due of ''exceptional achievements'', mostly about the advice to the government, and in the church. He was one of the main opponents to austerity, and proposed to deal with crisis by stimulating economy instead. He also at first advocated for an usage of offshore, untapped oil resources, in order to fuel the economy, but later - for a new reactor in Scotland.

After the previous Archbishop died, a small period of instability began, as he hadn't left a clear successor, and many new candidates, including Lawrence himself, nominated themselves for candidature. Lawrence's rhetoric was also pro-union, and appealing to the lower class masses, so he was pretty unpopular between elites, which wanted to see a more pro-industrial candidate in power. However, shortly before the Party's election, scandal rocked the government, and church, which affected the elite a lot, including some important Party's members. Lawrence also managed to find many influential allies both in Church, and the Party, so he managed to win in the Party's, and Church's elections. While common citizens couldn't participate in the vote, government surveys later on discovered a large amount of support for Lawrence's candidature, which would probably grant him a landslide victory, if proles could vote as well.

Reign and Ideology
His appointment to the position of Archbishop didn't came without controversy - some members of both the Party, and Church saw that as nepotism, and argued, that ''if not for the family ties, he wouldn't have been appointed''. Some also simply questioned, how fit he actually was for the position. First weeks in power were the hardest for him, but due of his iron will, he managed to not succumb to weakness.

After inauguration, he announced support for redistribution of wealth - similar program to the one proposed in 30s. He also announced a massive purge against corruption within the church, and confiscated a lot of the financial property for the church, in order to redistribute it to the poor later.

He also tried to loosen the religion laws a bit in terms of secularism. However, that was too much even for Kayden, and the Bishop had to withdraw his proposal. On the other hand, he proposed a new project - campaign against Catholicism in England, which Kayden gave the green light.

Policies
Since being elected as the Archbishop by the Church, and Minister of Faith by the Church, and Party, Lawrence Fisher has enacted a series of policies within the church, and has participated in decision making in government. They have resulted in:

  • Church welfare programs

  • Increased influence of the clergy in politics

  • More aggressive, interventionist policy, when dealing with other Regions

  • Prayer in public schools

  • Discussions within the Party about issue of racism

  • Raised more awareness about the problems of nature

  • Endorsed the evolution theory

  • More stricter moral code, enforced by state

  • Public works program

  • Higher wages for army priests

Political Opinions
Lawrence supports a guided economy, and is commonly known as a defender of traditionalism, and religiousness, while not an overly staunch one. He thinks, that most of the public, and private services should remain in the hands of state, and some - in hands of the Church. He is said to be a supporter of distributism, and Christian welfare.

In social issues, he is said to support ''mild authoritarianism'' - while he doesn't think, that Britain, and SC as a whole is ready for democracy, he doesn't support totalitarianism of the Father America, and has condemned the regional leaders of Korea. As expected, he is also socially conservative.

When it comes to foreign relations, he is surprisingly interventionist - he thinks, that ''Affairs of the other states aren't just their affairs, and that Britain should always try to secure its interests''. He also isn't that nationalist either, actually, and often reacts cold to ultranationalists. Along with that, he supports realpolitik as well.

Surprisingly, he isn't that racist either, and thinks, that ''in front of the God, every human is equal''. However, his stance has also raised criticisms from the some of the more xenophobic members of the party, while some others think, that he is not doing enough in order to stop the issue of racism, which is a deep problem in SC.

Personality

Lawrence is a well known workaholic - he usually devotes most of his time to job, so he has fewer time left to himself, and his family. However, not always it produces the wanted results - sometimes he overworks himself, yet still says, that ''he could have done better''.

While he tries to be somewhat polite against those, who he dislikes, it couldn't be said, that he would be nice against them, and often is not afraid to express the dislike with stronger words, if he is alone. He also tends to be grudge-bearing, and it can take a long time for him to forgive.

He also tends to be oblivious sometimes, and forgets, where his car keys are, or where his laser pistol is.

Other quotes
''Seeing someone with compassion and light in heart is a rare sign nowadays. However, remember, that there's always hope at the end of the tunnel.''

''Too much money flows in the hand of elites, and too less - for the common, poor working man.''

''Have you seen, how those people live in those slums in the outskirts near the capital? I have, and it is painful to know, that such injustice is happening.''

''When you become a member of the Church, you give the most important oaths in your life - those are more important than even your army's oaths. And no mercy should be against those, who breath their oaths, and corrupt the system.''

''Ideas like libertarianism are silly, because there is always going to be a high hierarchy of some sort, even if miracle happens, and we somehow return to democracy.''

''Before you make a confession, think about that, who needs it most - me, or you? Because I want to know, if you mean it from your heart.''

''If we leave the governors alone for too long, they will start to tear each other apart. So, we must be always there, always ready to intervene... That's my argument for it.''

''Religion is a good guidance, but in the end, you must make the decision on your own, and only on your own, because that is the best way, how someone can accomplish a result.''

''Ideologically fanatical regimes have no future - either they collapse on their own after some time, or devolve into a bureaucratic mess, where rarely anyone believes revolution anymore.''

*You found a note from an artist*

Gosh, I finally drew the poster the way they wanted! They always were complaining about something - about the helmet's color, the ''lack of revolutionary'' spirit, etc. They were perhaps the most annoying customers I ever had. But I had to bear with it - they were state's officials, and you can't just simply tell to ''bugger off'' to them.

*Note archived in your device*

Once people stop being patriotic, it is the end.

Get some! Here you go- a fist straight into your face!

Don't tread on someone, on which you are too small to thread on- for an example, don't tread on the Bear.

I do whatever I want, and no one can stop me.

Some people are good only for target practice.

Better a ruthless civilization, than a chaotic anarchy.

No war can be perpetual- every beginning has an end.

Aye, do you have a few cards? Perhaps we could play blackjack, mate.

What is wrong with a few pints of good, black beer?

Now, when my body parts are autonomous, and only brain is truly mine, I feel stronger... and weaker than ever.

Strengths: Can react to potential threats pretty fast, swift in battle, master of explosives, intelligent, physically very strong.
Weaknesses: Unstable emotionally, has tendency to drink a lot, often is loud and annoying, too much of a perfectionist, sometimes has a terrible memory.

Personality

Theo is pretty much a human and machine supremacist, and considers AIs to be ''the only other race, which is equal to a human'', and often views other sentient species with disgust. In fact, Theo isn't 100% human either- a few of his body parts are actually robotic, and he is sometimes ashamed of that, so he hides them in a green armor. However, this armor also has an another purpose- protecting Theo, while in battlefield. He is usually portrayed as ''state personified''.

Theo also is a cynic in nature, and he doesn't care about people's feelings, but only about their usefulness for the cause. He can measure, how much a human is worth in monetary value, but he can't appreciate sentimental, or emotional value.

He has fought in a lot of battlefields, and often has shown large amounts of brutality- he could drive over someone with a tank, and don't feel bad. Despite that, currently it is his ''peaceful'' period- he isn't particularly violent, as he has no person to fight with anymore. However, his emotions inside are pretty much a crazy mash, and he often can hear voices in his head, and he almost never has an inner peace.

His favorite gun is a laser Gatling gun, and he often can be seen on posters with it. He likes it, because ''its bullets go through body like a hot knife through a butter''. However, he is also open to more dirty methods, like punji sticks, and plasma mines- even without weapons, he is highly dangerous.

He has quite a knowledge about medicine, especially about herbs, and natural components. His magical abilities are enough for him to bend the time - he can be both in his current form, and his younger self. He can also apply this magic to other personifications too. He also is a man of science as well. However, when it comes to relationships with others, he is pretty sloppy in this case- he usually has tons of friends, but those are rather acquaintances.

However, there is also a darker side of him - he can revive dead countries, and make them with similar evil personality, and to do his bidding. In fact, most of his allies have been other countries in the past, which he has defeated, and then revived as Commonwealth states. Still, despite that, his revived allies aren't zombie-like, and have a personality on their own, and can object to his decisions.

He rejects both capitalism, and communism, and has described his ideology as both ''100% anti-capitalist, and 100% anti-communist''. However, despite that, he has a few tenets of guild socialism. He also believes, that "ethnicities are better to be kept separated from each other". He also considers globalism as a ''necessary evil'', because he believes, that ''only on international scale, Commonwealth can fend off its enemies.'' His long term goal is to abolish all of the parties, and instead install a system, what he calls as "Organic rule", where each politician is on their own, and not aligned with any party. Of course, there would be still some, which would be barred from participating in government- particularly liberals, monarchists, and libertarian socialists.

*You found a note from an officer*

Okay, this is getting ridiculous - at first, reforms soften our anti-left stance, and now, they are going step further - they are letting them to participate in the government! What's next - we start to add socialist books in our official Party's literature? Wait, I just received a notification, that they actually consider doing that... This world has gone completely bonkers.

The Commonwealth, and its flags


(In fact, although politics of the states of the Commonwealth are quite diverse already, there are some local branches, that are "minority branches", as they don't hold the power of a Commonwealth state as a whole, but only for autonomy, which has been given to them. So, politics are a mess, and full with intrigues... Or in other words, states of the Commonwealth have the same issues as FAE's rump state, just an one level lower.)

SC's Filteries results

Mysterious collapse of the other two superstates damaged FAE a lot too. Unrest was growing, and it became too hard to try to maintain a centralized command. At this point, FAE was very close to collapse, and it wouldn't take much for it to have the fate, that other two superstates received- a violent chaos, and a fight between militiant factions, and states would not solidify for at least decades.

However, a solution was found- Devolution. It was supposed to bring more of the FAE's resources to its rump Region, meanwhile FAE's soldiers left the Regions- Region militaries now were on their own, to protect the borders- they had to create their own army, navy, and airforce, creating something similar to League of Nations instead. Also, way more power was given to local branches. However, in the process, FAE almost collapsed, and situation is still unstable. Still, even after reforms, administration has not become slightly easy - although world was officially declared as ''united under one flag'', in reality, it is still plagued by raiders, rogue groups, and rebels, which drained a lot of resources from both central, and regional governments. It is estimated, that it will take years to consolidate all of the world, especially places like deserts, and remote islands.

After devolution process had been completed, and reforms were put in FAE, there were still threats to the FAE's former holdings, especially in South Africa. So, an compromise was made- a second Commonwealth would be created, but this time- with the rump state of FAE being in charge. Commonwealth nations are relatively autonomous, but they still have to play with FAE's rules, and FAE can intervene, and force other regions to intervene too, if a revolution would take place in some from the Commonwealth states. (Also sometimes called as Commonwealth republics)

Commonwealth's flag symbolics: 13 stars symbolize 13 Commonwealth States, blue- unity, globe- commonwealth itself, and red L- it's ruling party. And cogwheel symbolizes Tomism. (Rather not on its own, but together with the rest of the flag.)

Headquarters of the Commonwealth are in New York, and at the top, seats are usually for the FAE's, and former Region leaders. At the bottom, there are the representatives of the organizations both within FAE, and its former Frontiers. It kind of works like a smaller UN. Commonwealth is strictly republican, as all of its States are republics.

In a vote, regions, and FAE decide, what action to take militarily, what aid to send, what programs to implement, etc. It also works with solving border disputes between regions, in a representative vote. (In practice, however, it bot always works out, as governor from Bolivia, for an example, has little care of Balkan disputes.) Sometimes, the UCN also votes for accepting a new state or territory into the Commonwealth, and can also decide to embargo an one region, or veto a decision of it. Although there is voting, and not "a single ruler decides all", representatives aren't democratically elected, of course. By the way, Autonomies of Commonwealth States have their own armies too.

Also, just because of the title " World Syndicalist Republics", SC isn't actually syndicalist, and it is only for propaganda purposes. In reality, SC is rather a plain autocracy/fash dictatorship. That said, some of its member regions have national syndicalist governments.

In fact, although politics of the states of the Commonwealth are quite diverse already, there are some local branches, that are "minority branches", as they don't hold the power of a Commonwealth state as a whole, but only for autonomy, which has been given to them. So, politics are a mess, and full with intrigues... Or in other words, states of the Commonwealth have the same issues as FAE's rump state, just an one level lower.

(Random fact: 20th century, particularly the early 20s, WW2, and 50s, are often referred to as the ''Old World'' in SC's timeline, as those were the times before SC arose, and pretty much falsified a lot of its previous history. Most of the remnants of it are in form of weapons, and armored vehicles. Although, 60s, and 70s sometimes are referred to as the ''Old World'' as well.)

LinkUCN's meetings in a nutshell

There are usually 13 speakers in total, a.k.a one for every Commonwealth State (Siberia is more of a robot bantustan, though), and a lot of smaller ones for organizations. There are two types of issues- regional, and international. Regional issues are usually discussed in the Commonwealth State capitals, and other region representatives are not required to attend them. International issues, however, are discussed only in New York- UNC's HQ. All representatives of both organizations, and Commonwealth States, are required to be there. There is also a speaker for Antarctica, but it is more of a Territory, than a Commonwealth state, because it is still practically uninhabited.

"Tom is heavily guarded, as he can't move - many securitrons regularly patrol the area around him, along with humans, and Tom himself has force field, and turret defenses, which he can activate, if Neo Washibgton gets attacked. Sometimes, securitrons are his main chit-chat partners."

In the end, SC is definitely not a single entity, but a collection of various entities, and a web of complex alliances - for an example, religiously it is a collection of various cults, and radical religious groups, just like political groups. (On an another note, Belgrade would be the capital of Balkans, if it wasn't destroyed in the Great Nuke War..It got rebuilt, but it was still a shadow of its former self.) Some compare this to Japanese WW2 slogan ''Hakkō ichiu'', or "eight crown cords, one roof'', which is usually interpreted as an never-ending expansion, until all of the world is united.

For an example, European Federation's parliament is located in Buckingham palace, which formerly was a residence of the Royal family, but was turned into British Regional government's HQ at first, but later on it was supposed to house all of Europe's leaders. Leaders from eastern parts of Europe sit at the right, but Leaders from western parts of the Europe - at the left side. There are usually seats for both large region administration overseers, and leaders of Autonomies. Each region has one vote in meetings, and most prominent region flags are usually displayed at the meeting room. Sometimes it is described as ''Democracy for the Party, totalitarianism for the rest''.

*You found a note from a rebel *

They might have changed their skins, but their hearts have remained the same - corrupt, cold, cruel. They are the same oligarchy, which tries to grasp to its last straws. For now, they have outrun the time, but will they be lucky this time? Perhaps a small destabilization is what it needs the most...

Anyways, even if it survives the first years, it eventually will turn on itself, and die, just like others have before it.

*Note archived in your device*

For serious rule breaking (for example, not aiding FAE, and/or other frontiers in a conflict, failing to suppress revolution, not using money from FAE, and other frontiers for its purpose, etc.), a state can be kicked out from the Commonwealth. Such state would be quickly blockaded, and would be on its own, really. With the new international reality, such country would be doomed.

In fact, despite the name, European Federation isn't really a federation, but rather a decentralized mess, similar to HRE. (For an example, SC's Midwest is ran by agrarian, nationalistic ''anarchists'' atm, but ''anarchists'' in SC's world are basically just agrarian communitarians.)

Silver Commonwealth's Protection Service (SCPS)




Logo of the SCPS

Motto: "To keep the peace in the World"

SCPS was created in 2000, after CIA, FBI, and most of the other intelligence agencies were merged into one super-organization. One of its purposes is to deal with dissent in both America, and other states of the Commonwealth. It could be considered as a mix of KGB as well, because it has little, to no restrictions, when doing its job.

SCPS also has a branch, which checks out for potential dissent in internet, and works on propaganda. It could be said, that this branch is like an investigator, while main branch does the dirty job- rounding people up.

Most of the SCPS members have simple policemen uniforms, so they would look less threatening, and people wouldn't be that afraid at first, when they would commit their raids. However, some of the higher-ups have black cloaks. Most preferred weapon is a pistol, and taser.

Although SCPS is important, it is not important enough, to receive power armor, so mostly its armor is pretty basic- a simple kevlar vest, and a helmet.

There are approx more than 500,000 people, who are the members of SCPS, and they have many member statuses. Only a few of them are higher ups, and can work with a top secret information. Others mostly do either the dirty job, or work in other branches.

Sometimes it is said, that SCPS agents look way too like members of mafia, although it was brutally suppressed way before the creation of Commonwealth. Sometimes it is used as an add to the argument, that ''SC's government is an one big mafia''. However, SCPS also has vigilante groups, which do the dirty deed, and are usually more mobile, because government services can't cover all of the cases effectively. Some of the guards also look like LinkCombine soldiers.

Officially, it has no prisons. However, it often interrogates the suspicious persons, and dissents in labor camps, most usually in remote places like Greater North, or Sahara. They are often also called as ''slave camps'', as prisoners in them are treated horribly. It could be said, that slavery is pretty widespread in SC - it is present in workplace, and prisoners often die from work in the poorly maintained camps. Older camps often use mines around the outside perimeter, in order to not let prisoners escape. Newer camps, however, use movement sensors, as they are more effective, albeit still a bit more costly. Bomb collars were also considered as an option, but the chief of SCPS rejected the proposal as ''too inhumane, even for SC''. Actually it didn't. In fact, it also recycles dead bodies often for fertilizer for the few greenhouse farms there - a practice, which has also spread to the rest of the Commonwealth.

*You found a note from a army officer*

Today SCPS said, that it had interrogated a dangerous dissenter, which provided a lot of information for our anti-dissent campaigns. I commend them for that - perhaps they will receive a small premium later.

Culture


Canadian Republic's culture is structured similarly to America's - large megastates, with their own created culture, which depends on the job, with which they have been assigned. Also, culturally they are the most closest to each other. However, there are still differences between those two, especially in Quebec, where policy against French speakers has been changed many times historically.

Africa, Australasia, and South America are one from SC's melting pots in terms of culture - indigenous cultures, and colonist cultures are both under one flag, at least on paper. Still, cultural traditions are very different in each region, especially in Africa. Some natives have been recruited by governors, in order to try to integrate them as a part of Region army. However, policy of cultural separation still applies there, and historically, natives have been treated vastly different, depending on governors in charge, and Mapuches often need to gather gold from the sea, to hand it over for SC's ministries, in exchange for a little money. While Africa on paper is equal with the rest of the Commonwealth states, in practice, it often receives the short end of the stick. European culture is dominant in Australia, South Africa, and New Zealand, but recently added territories have a large development potential.

Regions like Central America are mostly predominantly Hispanic, along with a few indigenous cultures. Although there is some variety too, it isn't nearly such a melting pot like previously mentioned Commonwealth States. Natives there typically have received the short end of the stick, with Hispanics dominating the local politics. However, even then, there is lots of infighting.

European Federation, as name suggest, is predominantly European, and has little to no interaction from other Commonwealth State citizens, asides from higher-ups. Also, Kayden wants to keep ''homogeneous identity'' of the groups as well, so most of citizens view foreigners with suspicion. During the last years, ideology called as ''National communism'' has been spreading particularly in the Muscovy. It was created after a secret meeting of former RE's administration, and stalinists. Some experts call it ''crypto-fascist'', however. While they are the governors of Muscovy, their ideology lacks any presence outside of it, except for the Don-Kuban, where Red Cossacks rose to prominence, and are currently governing the region.

China is pretty homogeneous, although it has a few smaller cultures too, especially in the north, and west. However, although RNGOC remained, unlike RE, which was absorbed in the Federation, parts of the China were carved out for other Commonwealth Regions, including East Turkestan, Tibet, Southern China, and Eastern Part of Manchuria. Turkestan, as name suggests, mostly consists from Turkic cultures, with a small Tajik minority in the south. Middle East is mostly Arabic in the South, while there are other groups in the Caucasus, Iran, Levant, and Anatolia as well.

Siberia is an odd case between the Commonwealth states, as it is sparsely populated by humans, but has experienced an influx of AIs recently, as they serve as workers, and local leaders. Local culture is a strange blend of indigenous traditions, and sci fi. While in cities, AIs are increasing in amount, outside from cities, there are still mostly humans.

Antarctica hasn't developed its own culture yet, as it was taken only recently, and for now, it kind of serves as a penal colony of sort. It is even more sparsely populated than Siberia, but it has also started to develop its own cultural things, particularly in hunting. Some predict, that its culture will evolve into something Inuit-like. Others think, that it will be highly influenced by English, and American culture, adapted to harsh climates. Anyways, due of SC's aggressive policies, most of the cultures have started to turn towards collectivism.

Relations with the rest of the World


Due of the SC's brutality, extreme ideology, and lack of compromise, its relationships are strained with most of the multiverse. That said, it has made a few allies, or countries, which it could consider as ''friends'', or at least as neutral''. Still, it has way more enemies in the international stage, than friends, especially constitutional monarchies, and liberal democracies. For the most part, it doesn't participate in diplomacy, but when it does, the outcome rarely can be described as ''peaceful''.

F7 country Reputations in SC: (Inspired from Fallout NV)

Idolized: Those are one of the few countries, which some of the SC's leaders actually like, look up to, and consider as friends. It can be either due of ideological similarities, or the country high friendliness. Still, relations can get quite tense even with nations in ''idolized'' scale, as not all of SC's leaders are that friendly.

Valentine Z (Valentinians are often viewed as the bright ''Yang'', while SC - as the dark ''Yin'', which together create a yin-yang relationship. Due of the Valentinian friendly nature, some of the SC's leaders (like Stanley) like to talk with them. Of course, Tom is not positive on all of them.)
13 necropolis 13 (Necropolis is often viewed as a ''Big sister'' nation by the SC's politicians, due of its similar political, and governing system, along with being an interstellar superpower, with an army of the undead. SC's leaders often have said, that they want to be ''as successful as Necropolis''. If that will truly be the case, time will tell.)
The Multiverse of Holly Starlight (Although SC is aware of Holly's Starlight's takeover of their planet in an alternate timeline, some of the SC's politicians admire Holly's sheer power, and ability to just take over so many planets at such a (relatively) short time. Most often, Tom will talk friendly to her.)
Kyoki Chudoku (Tom finds Kyoki Chudoku, and its leader pretty close to his beliefs, and they both share dislike for capitalism as well. He also is impressed by her magical abilities, because he is inept in magic himself. That said, he doesn't really like the nekos of Kyoki Chudoku himself, like most of the other non-human sentient beings.)
Samantha-Higgs (Similarly to Holly's AU, Tom admires Samantha's leadership, even if he thinks, that the machine is "a bit crazy". Also aware of Valentine's Z dislike towards it, but tries to keep a neutral stance in this conflict.)

Accepted: Those nations Commonwealth finds at least sympathetic, if not friendly to them. That said, differences, and disagreements between the two often prevent SC from establishing an alliance with them.

Afrikaaners Ryk (Particularly liked by Renier, as he admires Pieter's ability to ''craft a large empire in Africa''. While Tom would also prefer a stable Ryk, at the same time, even he finds some of the Ryk's policies disgusting, and has had disagreements with Pieter's methods. And even Renier is sometimes horrified by Ryk's actions.)
Imperial octavia (One of the few nations, which is liked by the SC, despite being a monarchy. Supercomputer Tom often finds many common points in VictorNet's philosophy, and also admires the strength of Octavian army. That said, he isn't completely content with Octavian invasion in Valentine Z, and Tom's hard line republicanism is an obstacle in the relations.)
Lahnland (Tom generally considers Tomism, and Lahnland's ideology as "very similar", and has been interested to know more about their way of life. However, he views Lahnland's ultranationalism as "harmful" at the same time, and has expressed concerns about its future.)
The Rapture Republic (Tom is fond of Rapture's technocratic model, and has been neutral-positive on VictorNet so far.. He also likes Eta as well. Still, the mood swings of Rapture's leaders, non-interventionism, and recent change in policies has made Tom's feelings complicated towards the Rapture.)
The English Socialist Union of Oceania (One of the nations with system the most closest to Commonwealth's ideology, and even their history is somewhat similar. While Tom considers Oceania as a potential ally, his interactions with its leader - Hastings, have been pretty cold.)

Mixed: Nations, which SC views neither in favorable, or hateful light. It likes some of their elements, and dislikes others. That said, this feeling, like with others there, can also not be mutual - nations, which SC views in a neutral light, might view SC themselves in a hateful light.

Soleanna (Despite Soleanna being a monarchy, Tom has said to like Lawrence's autocratic rule, and is neutral-positive towards Lord Regenar as well. Still, Tom prefers to remain cautious with relations.)
Knessniet (Both countries have staunchly Christian populace, and Tom has signed trade deals with Knessniet in the past (Silver bullion). However, SC isn't too fond of neither monarchy, or most forms of capitalism (Except state capitalism), so it complicates the relations a bit.
Pan-Asiatic States (Although SC is aware of PAS negative opinion towards it, it still finds some of the PAS positions ''like able'', and has some sympathy towards it. That said, it still views PAS with suspicion.)
Socialist Communist States (Although Tom openly hates Kokichi, and most of his staff personally, official political relations between the countries are actually neutral. Well, neutral in a sense, that SC wants to avoid direct confrontation. Tom likes the totalitarian system the most, but despises Kokichi's ''lack of actual socialist thought''.)
Low bloods (Although Oni is a neko, and theoretically should be hated by the Tom, and rest of the SC, Tom actually finds his feelings towards Oni as ''neutral''. That said, both leaders have things, which they dislike about each other, or each other's realms.)

Shunned: While SC's leaders dislike those countries, and their leadership for the most part, it mostly is due of ideological differences, and isn't as extreme. When talking with ambassadors, discussions can still be calm, but tension can sometimes be literally felt in the air. However, it is very hard to gain SC's trust, but very easy to become hated in its eyes.

Fallen Albali (Due of the Amaki's hate towards AI, Tom views her in extremely negative light. Politically, however, he has little complaints, and although he views her species negatively as well, it is not enough to reach "vilified" category.)
Astoriya (As SC in general has negative opinion towards democratic socialism, pacifism, and Astorian anthros, it is not a surprise, that relations between the both aren't that good. That said, however, Astoria being a republic earns a little warm spot in Tom's processor heart.)
Calliana (Tom isn't too fond of Calliana's Wikerist ideology - although he admires Wiker's rejection of anarchism, he still thinks, that ''Wiker is not authoritarian enough'', and both leaders have expressed strong dislike against each other. Overall, ideologically Calliana and SC are still very different, which makes their relations complicated.)
Kyria (It is not secret, that Tom is no fan of Kyrian democracy, going as far to call it a ''bootleg old world's USA''. That said, Tom has tried to find a potential ally in Kyria - Danial William Kyllehog, as he thinks, that some of his views would be ''resourceful for a dictatorship''. Time will tell, if Danial thinks the same.)
Wawakanatote (While not being a fan of S.U.S.R.s variation of socialism, Tom considers it a "better alternative to corporate capitalism, and laissez-faire". He also likes some of its leaders more than others. Still, on international scale, both countries are rivals.)

Vilified: Those countries are despised by many of SC's politicians, and leaders. Reasons can be various - varying from extreme ideological competition, being members of other species (SC dislikes most non-human sentient life, asides from AIs), to having a political trait, which SC views with disdain. In either case, diplomatic relations are very hostile, if any at all.

Earth circa 2050 (As it is not a world government, Tom's dislike against certain countries varies - for example, he despises states like North Korea less, than he would despise Norway, or UK. Anyways, overall he hates many things about this world - from extensive corporate deregulation, shadow governments, capitalist internationalism, to things like monarchy. He has regularly said to his party's members, that ''This Earth's democracy is utterly useless'', and that ''it should regulate its corporations more''.)
Zitravgrad (Although Zitravgrad's inhabitants theoretically are species, which are different from SC's humans, they both look very similar. Still, even with such small differences, he considers them as ''muties'', and due of his recent aggressive policy, tried to release a virus cloud from the embassy, which would be carried by the jet streams across Gaia, and wipe out not only Zitravgrad, but the rest of the Gaians as well. Luckily, plan was discovered in time, before Tom was able to launch it. Now, for obvious reasons, relations with Zitravgrad are very hostile.)
Wunderstrafanstalt (While both country goals involve becoming a world government, both leaders have very different ideas, on how to achieve it. It is no secret, that Tom despises Leovin Kalvar's anti-nationalist, and classical liberal views.)
Uinted Communist of Africa (Tom, and the rest of the Party finds the idea of a communist monarchy ''laughable'', and uses every chance to mock it in its SNN broadcasts. Tom also views them as a ''some sort of soviet copycat'' as well.)
Frievolk (Tom views Frievolk, and its government as an anti-thesis of SC's government - Frievolk's democratic monarchism, vs Commonwealth's totalitarian republicanism. However, unlike with Valentine Z, there is no yin-yang relationship, but only fierce competition, and distaste against each other. Also, due of Tom's militant hatred against monarchism, and readiness to use WMDs, it is unlikely, that there will ever be a peace in relations between those two countries.)

Hello, it's your old holographic friend - the Overseer, or Wulfy, once again! If you didn't knew, all that text, which you were exploring previously, and are reading now, has been written by me - well, except the holo-notes scattered around there, but we won't get into that... If some of it was not too positive towards the Party, then keep in mind, that I have some assertive side, that programmers can't seem to remove, sadly! Anyways, I just wanted to remind you to not do anything silly!

About us


We are a group of social media united under our government, which have an almost absolute monopoly on news in newspapers, TV, radio, and internet. In past, we were a mouthpiece of false facts. However, now those times are in past - even if we are under government control, we report the truth, no matter how bad it hurts, do we? (Obviously not) You can subscribe to our news for a reasonable fee, and they will always come in your mail, even if you live in far-away place such as Rockies, or Arabia! Our news are broadcasted in all radio waves, and you don't even need a modern equipment to catch them - turn your old 50s radio in, and listen! However, newer technology provides more opportunities, and privileges as well. We were formed as early as in the old 50s, which now have sunken into the history abyss, but we experienced our golden days only recently, customer!

Although we are an one group, we have branches in all of the regions, even including Antarctica! Be ready to pay more for news there, though They report news specifically from those places, so reporters could focus more on their region issues. In the end, a special group of editors gather the news together, and decide, which are important enough to be put in the international SNN Net, but which - only in regional media.

Branches


SNN Canada: A branch of SNN, which operates within Canada, and provides news from there. Generally an unreliable source, however, there have been corruption accusations in the past of its integrity.

SNN UMA: Main branch of the SNN, which not only reports happenings in the Megastates, but also gathers together information from the rest of the regions. SNN's international HQ is located in Neo Wasington, while reserve HQ - in Chicago.

SNN Europe: One of the biggest SNN branches, with over millions of subscribers to both newspapers, radio, and in internet. Operates in the 11 Federation's regions, and covers various kinds of topics - from sports and cooking tips, to government announcements, and regional political developments. Has a big control on information flow, and sometimes covers the news of other regions as well, even such far away places as Australasia.

SNN India: This branch is also largely a regional one, despite the overall large coverage - from Afghanistan, to Burma. Sometimes it gives advice of natural herbs, and how to avoid hazards. It also sometimes airs documentaries about nature. However, regional issues are a large part of the coverage as well, due of regional diversity, and often local conflicts.

SNN Japan: Unlike other some of the other new SNN branches, this one didn't start off from zero, and was created in a similar way to the former RNGOC newspaper - by getting old reporter veterans together. It typically writes about the matters of Ring of Fire, and Pacific Ocean.

SNN Middle East: Similarly to SNN Turkestan, mostly focuses on coverage of the news in Middle East, with exceptions, if the issue affects Middle East as well. It is also similarly new, and unprepared. However, despite overall Jareer's secularism, a lot of the SNN's branch guests are very religious themselves, so it could potentially swing the populace towards higher religiousness. It also reports about renewable energies, and ideas of possible other replacements of the oil.

SNN Australasia: A large network, similar to SNN Europe, and SNN UMA, and also does international coverage, not only Australasia's matters. However, recently it has entered a pretty large budget deficit, as rapid expansion has caused a pressure on news outlet as well, as suddenly there is just so much to write about, as Australasia encompasses all of the Southeast Asia, Oceania, Australia, and even Southern China. Also, it is fairly politically biased.

SNN Central America: Although it is also one of the first SNN's branches, and has experienced journalists, it has faced problems in recent years - corruption kick backs, cut of funds, and government's increasing demands. Risk of cartel resurgence has also increased threat level. Still, this SNN branch tries to provide the best news of various topics.

SNN South America: Unlike some of the other news branches, SNN South America actually tries to prioritize publishing apolitical news, and more often news about weather, charity programs, or sports results can be found, than politician opinions. However, even it can't avoid mentioning politics once in a while. Still, it is an experienced network, with large funding.

SNN Africa: Although it is supposed to cover all of the Africa's news, it mostly for now covers only the news of Southern part of Africa, as infrastructure is in a bit better shape there, due of not being a part of the disputed zone. Still, it has news departments in all Africa's administrative regions, and it is working towards improving its new network.

SNN Turkestan: Unlike large branches like SNN Europe, which have been active for many years already, and have a stable ground, SNN Turkestan is a rather recent branch, which still is uncertain about its future, and lacks proper news equipment. Also, it is more of a regional reporter, as it mostly writes only about happenings in Central Asia, unless outside events affect Central Asia as well.

SNN Siberia: One of the most successful new SNN branches - it has been operating for only a few weeks, but already has got a pretty good equipment, and budget. Some of it can be explained by the efficient AI planning. In reality, SNN Siberia focuses more on finance news, than local news, actually.

SNN China: A half-successor of the old RNGOC's newspaper, which was active until RNGOC's collapse. Compromised of veteran reporters, SNN China is also somewhat pro-RNGOC biased, and mostly provides political opinions, although it writes about more everyday matters as well, like conditions in mines, for an example.

SNN Antarctica: Unlike most of the other SNN branches, SNN Antarctica is rather a radio broadcast only, as printing press hasn't been brought to Antarctica in enough amounts yet, and amount of internet is limited, slow, and mostly used for data transmission, instead of browsing it. Still, it aims its best to return some fresh news from Antarctica. So far, it has been very useful for SC's state companies, when reporting newly discovered deposits.

SNN Net: Reports the same news as newspaper and radio sources, just posts them in internet, and packages them together. SNN Net also gives an ability to leave a comment about the news. With great censorship, however.. Has the same headquarters as regional broadcasts do.

(Note: News in this page is more supposed for being read by other nations outside SC. In SC itself, news would look quite different.)

Archive


Recently, our programmers have been working on an update of our news system - from now on, some of the past news will be able to be read in archive! Archive now has been completed, and will store older news from now on - no more pruning of previous articles! Ministry of Communications apologizes for any technical problems.

DATE: 2051, 20th March



SNN Canada: ''In the recent days, Qalupaliks - human-like, mythological creatures in Inuit mythology, which live in the sea, and long hair, green skin, and long fingernails, have been reported to be seen in packs around the sea ice in the territories of Greater North. One of them was gunned down by an Inuit elite soldier with a minigun, and power armor. The specimen has been sent to one of the Greater North's secret facilities, to examine further anatomy. Meanwhile, worrying reports of possessed humans come from the villages in Arctic isles. ''Evil tuurngait (spirits) have been very active recently, I think, that it is a work of a Wendigo - the one, who pulls strings behind all events in our world.'' A young hunter says.''
(see on page 2)


SNN America: ''Due of the rise of sightings of mythological beings, increased contacts with spirits, and overall slowly rising usage of military magic, Tom has called an emergency mystic council in Neo Washington. ''I am afraid, but I think, that we have only one option, of how to find out, what is the reason for that - we must contact that lovecraftian beast Wendigo through a ritual.'' Tom says. ''Wendigo? Are you nuts? It is a very dangerous contract, which you are signing right now, Tom.'' One of the priests says. ''See, God is for spiritual guidance, but Wendigo is for more... practical matters, similar to Cthulhu. He has had a helping hand in some of our military victories in the past, and he is also a good advice giver, if you know, how to ask. Occultists could give us a helping hand at that.'' Tom finishes with cold tone.''
(see on page 4)


SNN Central America: ''From the state farms, more reports come about mysterious attacks, and stealing of the livestock. Most popular theory blames the local bandits, which have significantly risen during the last years in SC's Central America. However, some also blame Chupacabra - legendary beast in Central American folklore. ''As beasts like waheela, Vetala, and banshee are already confirmed to exist in our world, and due of magic's presence, it is not entirely impossible, that it could exist in our world, but we need more proof for that.'' Local police chief says. Some state farms plan to even hire secutritrons for protection.''
(see on page 6)


SNN Siberia: ''Sightings of Yakut demons - Abassy from the SC's permafrost. Mostly dwelling near graves, or in deserted places, causing destruction where they are traveling. They also have been reported to cause madness for the travelers of the region. RBHU-3 prepares robot army for defense of villages at night, while Aykhan seeks advice from local shamans, on how to solve the matter on spiritual world's level instead. While robot cities for the most part have been remained not too concerned about the news, the countryside communities are terrified. ''They haven't been appeased for a long time, so they now are returning back to the world of living.'' Some reindeer herders say. Most of other Siberia's neighbors dismiss the reports as ''fantasy'', yet there are some, who are ready to take news seriously.''
(see on page 8)


SNN Australasia: ''An upgraded version of magic rifles is said to be at experimental stages in one of Australian deserts. ''If compared to other rifles, magic rifles are still a pretty new technology, so a lot of the specifics are still unknown, but we will see, how fruitful that is.'' One of the head scientists says. Guns are mostly equipped for utilizing dark magic, as it is more effective for attack, but some guns are also supposed to be made for healing. Meanwhile, a new variant of Bob Semple tank, powered by nuclear fuel, is currently at exercise polygon, in order to test its laser turrets, and engine, and ability to drive over trenches.''

Which policies are our canon?

*You found a note from a reporter*

I am not sure, if SC tells us the whole story - I have a feeling, that they hide something, as reports from locals, and reports in news sometimes differ a lot. Frankly, some of those news are absurd, and are like a painkiller for readers.

(OOC note: Commonwealth is kind of a mix of Caesar's Legion, Enclave, NCR, and many other stuff! (Somewhat inspired from the NV DLCs as well, with Overseer being somewhat Yes-Man inspired) Also, it is mostly HOI4, with a few elements from Victoria 2, and its government system is similar to CK2's vassal system, actually. It has some elements from Killzone, Planetside 2, Hunger Games, MW2, GTA, Matrix, Half-life's 2 Combine, and toned down 1984 as well, and various otl factions, ethnicities, and organizations. Could also be described as ''House of Cards'' on steroids, or Imperium of Man in its early stages, but Jacobin instead. Also partially inspired by HOI4 ''Master of Puppets'' playthrough, and ''Always war'' timelapse. And yes, I used NS banners, and posters for a bit more variety, and I wanted the homepage to be a bit more immersive, and look like a video game loading screen. And yes, mythological creatures exist there, so be prepared for a pretty diabolical world.)

Silver Commonwealth- Year 2051

(P.S. We have received complaints, that our website looks way too much like a Deep Web page. Well, guess what? If you are reading this message, this means, that you are already in the deep web! No, not in that deep web. We simply call this as ''deep web'' because this site can't be accessed by ordinary Commonwealth citizens themselves, only by those, who know to find this, and... Well, foreigners as well.Why, you might ask? Because proles don't deserve to see... sensitive information.

Just remember, that in the end, in the game, that''s called as ''life'', winner is always the state. You can resist us, or embrace the fate, but in the long term, state will always come ahead of you.

Personally, I think, that the lifes of commoners are more interesting than boring, bureaucratic lavish - have you ever seen, how skillful is a Don Cossack with an old rifle, and a sword on a horseback? Have you seen, how well steppe tribals catch their prey, or Inuits fishing on the sea ice? Life is interesting, but only if you need to spectate it.

In case, if you are (un)lucky enough, to visit our country, then congrats - you can stay there forever! We will give you a nice bottle of nuka-cola, and a cookie! Hehe... *Evil Flowey laugh* And remember, they will be watching your steps, especially me!

*Ministry's Hologram (Overseer, or Wulfy) disappears, leaving you alone in this portal. Road ahead leads in only one direction, and on it, a message is written - ''Enjoy your stay''*
