The Holy Bagiussian Empire is a superpower in the north of Eurasia and the Mediterranean, which appeared in its present form as a result of a successful series of conquests during the Second World War.

Bagiussia is a gigantic, developed, semi-authoritarian, bureaucratic and militaristic socialist state.

The Bagiussian state is enlightened and socially oriented, but they have a lot of blood on their hands, and this fact is a potential destabilizing factor.



The Holy Bagiussian Empire

Full official name of the state


The second name of the state, has the status of an official shortened.

Minor Bagiussia

Bagiussia proper, the birthplace of the Bagius


This word indicates belonging to the ethnic group of Bagiuses.


This word indicates belonging to the land and the state, whether it be Minor Bagiussia or the Holy Empire.

The ethnonym (name of the nationality) "Bagius" has a controversial origin. Most likely, this word in ancient times meant "good comrades" (yes, we are very proud).

"Bagiussia" appeared according to the standard procedure for forming the names of countries (name of the people + ia).

"Bagiussian" = Bagiussia + an

The original lands of Bagiussia.

Before 1420
Bagiussia as a country appeared in the 6th century, the ancestors of the Bagius people, presumably, were a mixture of migating people from the Ural region, the Baltic lands and Central Rus'.
The new statehood took shape by 1075.

It was an ordinary feudal kingdom, if only somewhat wealthy.
The Bagius kings quite successfully fought the Pechenegs, Russia, Hungary, Poland, Bulgaria, Serbia, and the Eastern Roman Empire. The local culture, which was not inferior to the Polish, for example, also developed quite well.

The Mongol raid in 1240 cost the country many lives, but it was a one-time disaster. In the future, Bagiussia fought with the Mongols and Turks with varying success until 1682, since then the Bagiussians were constantly successful.

In 1420, Felix III the Greedy ascended the throne.
He was a great figure of early capitalism.
In a series of successful military campaigns of 1430-1452, he conquered Crimea, Bulgaria, Serbia and Macedonia.
He robbed the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, Russia, Turkey, and the Northern Italy.
Using the loot and managerial talents of a number of people, including his own, he gave a huge impetus to the development of the economy and culture of Bagiussia, while maintaining his power.

The reign of Michael 2 the Long-handed was marked by extensive territorial acquisitions, mainly in Eastern Europe.
The Grand Duchy of Lithuania, Moscow, the Livonian Confederation, Ragusa, Bosnia, Greece, and Turkey were subjugated.
The penetration beyond the Urals and into Siberia began.
The first colonial seizures were made in India (2 small bases the size of an Italian city-state), West Africa (Sierra Leone region), North America (significant lands).

The development of the economy and culture continued.

As far as politics is concerned, the country had a federal absolute monarchy.

Michael 2 did not find a good heir, and the rather controversial Casimir 1 the Green became the new emperor.
He strengthened the power of the crown in Eastern Europe and Turkey, contributed to colonialism and the establishment of trade relations, and captured Sicily.
At the same time, he tried with rather cruel methods to subordinate the entire religious life around him to the Bagius Orthodox Church, took very high taxes and strengthened the local governors.

Casimir left no heir. For 48 years, the country plunged into instability.
At the top of the pyramid of power during this time, 9 corrupt cliques were replaced, 6 major uprisings took place, and the country itself was gradually falling apart.
Control over Siberia, Russia, Lithuania, Belarus, Turkey, Sicily was lost.

Indian colonies cut off ties with their homeland, becoming independent states. They will lose their independence in 1808, becoming British colonies.

Sierra Leone existed as a de facto independent military dictatorship from 1545 to 1732, after which it was destroyed by a broad coalition of African tribes, Muslims, Spain and Portugal and England.

The American colonies formed an independent state, and today they are our historical friends.

Gradually, the country fell apart completely. In some places, local diadochi ruled, in some places - the clergy, in other places - the local nobility. In a number of lands, statehood disappeared, and more primitive forms of organizing social life reigned.
Joseph 1 the Ferreous headed the Principality of Bagi in 1580. Having seen enough of corruption and national catastrophes, he united the original territories of Bagiussia with an iron hand and diligently cleansed them of "degenerative manifestations".

In economic terms, the country kept pace with the times, sometimes ahead of it.

Ivan 1 the Quietest worked peacefully to strengthen the culture of his country, while working to suck up wealth from other countries.

As for foreign policy, the colonization of Madagascar began under him.
Michael 3 waged a rather difficult struggle with the German monarchs for the possession of Hungary, Serbia, Slovakia, Bosnia, and Croatia.

By 1715 Hungary, Serbia, Bosnia and Dalmatia were taken.

David 1 The artist was not remembered for any major political actions: neither good nor harmful.
But the memory of him is kept by all the cities from the Dnieper to the Adriatic.

The Regency Council rules under the infant son of the heir David, who died in the 1st week of his reign from halera.
Boring but relatively honest bureaucrats of the Council tried to make sure that nothing broke during their reign.

Stepan 1 The teacher took the new ideas quite lively.
Under him, there was significant progress in many areas of knowledge, crafts, mass production ...
He created a very strong army, which, nevertheless, he used quite rarely: the most striking forceful action was the conquest of Georgia (1756) and interference in the elections of the Polish king (1762).

Leo 1 the Newlover openly supported Revolutionary France, having carried out a number of military campaigns against Austria and Russia, but faced Napoleon, who was not going to compete with the "wrong" Bagiussia.

Together with his enemies from the reactionary bloc, Leo defeated the Napoleonic empire, while gaining Austria, Venice, and Czechia.
In the new world, the Bogiussian Empire found itself isolated, and only the American brothers were the ones with whom Leo could talk in a good way.

Ivan 2 tried to improve the diplomatic reputation of the country, while promoting industrial development and making a significant contribution to the development of progressive ideas that existed then: revolutionary patriotism, liberalism, Marxism.

Under him, the country did not participate in any war.

Felix 4 is out of luck. Under him, attempts were made to carry out a number of colonial conquests in Africa, Asia, and the Caucasus.
If the war with Turkey, as a result of which Constantinople was taken from them, could be tolerated, then the forced build-up of forces was intolerable.

In the Patriotic War of 1880-1892 Bagiussia was opposed by Germany, Russia, Turkey, Italy, Britain and France.
Despite the fierce resistance of the Empire, many possessions in Italy, Austria, the Caucasus and Africa were lost.

Joseph 2 consolidated power, to a certain extent isolated the country, rebuilt the economy to his own pseudo-Marxist taste, and strengthened the army.
He has forged a sword that will strike a terrible blow in the near future.

In 1926-1933 the First World War took place, leaving Europe devastated. Only a few European countries escaped this fate, and Bagiussia was among them.

Meanwhile, resistance was rising in the conquered countries, and Bagous Madagascar helped them as best they could.

During the reign of Martin 1, a radical restructuring of the balance of power in the world and orders within the country took place.
In 1935, he moved the army to conquer Europe, starting the Second World War in alliance with South China, Indochina, New Bagiussia, Bakius Madagascar and a number of Baigusskophile organizations.

Well-armed, trained and innovative, the Imperial Army smashed the exhausted nations with energetic and brutal actions, preventing them from mobilizing.

In 1935, Belarus, Ukraine, and the Czech Republic fell.
Poland, Austria and Italy capitulated in 1936.
In 1937, France, Benelux, Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Norway, and Finland were defeated.
In 1938, the process of conquering the Middle East began, which was completed by 1940.
At the same time, England, Ireland, Iceland capitulated and an attack on Russia was launched.
In 1940 the Russian Republic capitulated.
By 1942, the territory of the occupied countries had fully come under imperial control.

The new order

  • The entire European economy was restructured on socialist lines.

  • A significant part of the land was transferred to the peasants, some industrial facilities were given under the authority of self-management.

  • The political field was almost cleared. Hail the Emperor!

  • Talk of "national revival" was severely suppressed. Cultural figures, except for the Bagius ones, suffered terribly.

  • The Bagius culture spread, other cultures slowly rolled into the graves.

  • Religion was openly mocked, despite the fact that it leads to rebellions. "The more enemies we shoot about this, the better".

Gradually weakened by purges, war weariness and the rise of collaborationism, the WW2 Resistance ceased to exist by 1960.

The reign of Semyon 1 turned out to be relatively calm.
Gradually, but certainly, resistance was crushed.
Some economic successes were achieved: the country finally recovered after the war and fully entered the space and nuclear era.
Bagiussia has become known to absolutely all the inhabitants of the planet: to some as a virtue, to others as a terrible colossus with feet of clay.

The Regency Council under the still alive, but terribly sick Emperor.
The growth of corruption, the appearance of signs of lagging behind the world, primarily America.
Growing tensions with China and Africa.

The reign of Peter 1.
Closing the gap with other countries.
The growth of corruption.
Increased repression and unwanted political sentiment.

The reign of Klaus I.
Consolidation of royal power.
Bringing order.
The fight against the Chinese, Japanese and hostile Africans, puppets of their "allies".

Listening absolute monarchy
This state is an absolute monarchy, which gives people the opportunity to speak (within certain limits) so that the authorities can get information about the state of affairs in the country, and people do not feel too disadvantaged.

Feedback channels
  • Parliament. It is an advisory body, which is elected by secret proportional voting for a term of 4 years.

  • The Politburo, which is a council of ≈20 prominent people in politics and state structures, whose opinion is very important.

  • The right to apply "upstairs", even to the Emperor. Requests are processed by the Imperial Chancellery: rubbish goes to trash, unimportant ones go to specialized bureaus, important or interesting statements go to the table of high officials, and even to the Emperor himself.

  • Respect for professionals. They may be right, after all.

  • Monitoring and surveillance. The Statistical Bureau, the General Staff, the Intelligence Service, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the secret police and some other structures put their reports on the emperor's table from time to time.

    Semi-federal territorial structure
    Firstly, the local peoples are recognized the right to have a piece of land that recognizes their culture on an equal footing with the Baigus culture.
    Secondly, it is recognized that regions are different and the state is very big, so the local people sometimes "know better".

    At the same time, the regions of the Holy Empire do not have any political rights.

    "Imperial ideology" refers to the set of postulates that the Holy Empire and its loyalists adhere to.

    Moderate monarchism
    Monarchy is not the only possible, and not even the best form of government, but it works well for us, and our Emperor is a fine fellow, a politician, a leader and a fighter, and a good person too.
    Scientific socialism

    Socialism is the best form of social organization, but it needs to be properly built and ruled, it needs material conditions, and so on...

    Some authoritarianism

    For the good of society, discipline and, sometimes, not quite popular measures are needed ...


    What a dangerous world we live in! How many villains, scoundrels, bandits, degenerates are here!
    It would be very foolish to throw away the weapon.

    Materialism and atheism

    The world is material, and God, most likely, does not exist.


    Basically, people are born ▒ equal.

    Imperial Supremacy

    Our state is a superpower, it is better than most countries in the world.
    It has nothing to do with race, no, not at all. This is about the power of our unity, the greatness of our culture, the progressiveness of our policy, the wonderfulness of our Emperor.

    It hurts to fall from a height...

    The death of our state will be a terrifying social disaster on a planetary scale. Not only are the Bagius likely to be subjected to genocide; with our death, most likely, the last ray of light in the fate of mankind will go out, the last path to a bright future will become inaccessible.

    We must survive and win, by any means, by all means, by truth or by falsity.

    Bagiussia is a state with a huge, pretty innovative and developed socialist economy.

    The country's economy is semi-planned, with elements of self-management and the market.
    Economic entities can be divided into a number of large groups.

    Cogs of the system
    The first group includes strategic, easily planned or arch-important enterprises.
    They strictly obey the order with "control numbers" issued from above, while bearing responsibility for the quality of the products.
    Their products are placed free of charge at the disposal of the state apparatus, which pays the enterprise for its work and supplies it with raw materials, means of production, and so on.

    Autonomous enterprises
    The second group includes semi-self-managed enterprises. Often, such enterprises are called "vassal". They are state-owned, must be subject to many rules, but otherwise they are quite free. In internal affairs, democracy is quite strong.
    They are quite firmly connected with the local authorities and with each other, being united with the local economic councils.

    Non-state enterprises in which democracy reigns.
    The property of the cooperative is the sum of the property invested by the workers themselves and the state.
    They work, one might say, in a semi-market way.
    This type of enterprise is loved by the Holy Empire more than many others.

    Petty bourgeoisie
    Private enterprise is allowed and even supported, provided that there is no exploitation of the labor of others, the generation of unearned income and, of course, violations of the regulations.

    Sectors of the economy


    Bagiussia, being the owner of vast forests, fields and rivers, perfectly feeds itself with everything that northern Eurasia can give.

    Main agricultural crops:
    • Cereals

    • Potatoes

    • Vegetables

    • European and Middle Eastern fruits

    • Sugar beet

    • Sunflower

    • Soy

    • Berries

      Major sub-sectors of livestock industry:
      • Poultry meat

      • Beef

      • Pork

      • Other types of meat

      • Milk

      • Eggs

      • Wool

      • Honey

        Extractive industry
        Bagiussia appropriates a huge amount of resources from its resource-rich territory and some foreign countries.
        On the territory of the Holy Empire and its sphere of influence, you can find almost everything that, in principle, can be found in the crust of the planet Earth.

        The industry of Bagiussia is a powerful force, providing the country with almost everything that can be produced at this stage of human development.

        Bagiussia is an energy superpower that fully feeds itself and exports certain volumes of energy carriers to other countries.
        Although the climate is not the most favorable, there is a lot of oil, gas, coal, uranium and other things in the bowels.

        Major sources of electricity:
        • Nuclear power plants

        • Hydroelectric power plants

        • Thermal power station

        • Alternative sources

          Bagiussia has a "big government".
          There are many bureaucratic structures, state enterprises, bureaus, departments and so on in the country.
          To understand all this, the population is helped by a "legal information bureau" operating under the Ministry of Public Relations.

          The legal tradition of Bagiussia, like the moral system, proceeds from some special provisions, not fully recognizing what is declared "universal values".

          Catholic - 20%
          Protestants - 10%
          Orthodox Christians - 13%
          Muslims (sunni) - 12%
          "Vaguely religious people" (They believe, but they are not quite sure of what. All sorts of superstitions, elements of various religions, local legends - that's what they believe in) - 5%

          Note that an unknown but fairly large proportion of those who claim to be of the faith are actually VRPs.

          Bagiussa is a social and socialist state that has achieved notable success in meeting the important needs of the people.
          The great slogan "To each according to his needs" is slowly beginning to take shape.

          Working conditions
          Unfortunately, we are limited by our level of development, but this does not mean that we need to exhaust ourselves. Planners, for political reasons, tend to budget for lower workloads and higher standards for workplace comfort.

          Health care in Bagiussia is universal and free. From the state you can get treatment, and care, and medicines, and prostheses, and special devices.
          Private individuals account for no more than 10% of medical services provided.

          Education in the Holy Empire is highly developed. The education system is massive and quite efficient.

          Until the 9th grade (16 years old, as a rule), studying is an obligation, and they will teach for free.
          After that, you can study for free at school, technical school, university.

          State policy is aimed at ensuring that everyone has housing.
          At the present stage of development, those who want to settle are required, mainly, to want to settle in some place and work there: the state will issue an interest-free loan.

          Poverty, unemployment
          Of almost non-existent! HURRAH! HURRAH! HURRAH!

          If a person really wants to find a job, but cannot, then this is considered the fault not so much of the person himself, but of the state.

          Other stuff
          There are many preferential programs: "Computers for children", "Telescopes for little lovers", "A car for every rural family", "Clothes for anyone" and the like.

          Bagiussia is an extremely important scientific power. 1/5 of all scientists of the Planet work in this country.
          A huge number of projects, a bloated space program and educational activities are being carried out.
          Bagiussia is fanatically moving towards becoming a "new type of civilization".

          Architecture and urban planning
          The architecture of the country is dominated by neoclassicism, constructivism, "totalitarian architecture", a certain amount of brutalism, as well as popular amateur performances.

          Cities and towns are centrally planned, with a rather noticeable, even somewhat irrational, deposit for future possible development. When you look at the map, you will see geometric shapes.

          Non-monumental residential buildings are low, 2-7 floors. They are at a clear distance from each other in neighborhoods equipped with food stores, household stores, schools, basic medical facilities, access to the public transport system, playgrounds, sometimes green space, and so on.

          In principle, the cities and towns of Bagiussia have a lot of greenery - unlike other stuff, it is always sweet to the eye and heart.

          The towns themselves are equipped with a mid-range hospitals, several vocational schools, cultural and sports facilities, at least one monumental building, and so on.

          The public transport system is fairly well developed.

          The Holy Empire considers this art form very important, and follows it very closely, taking a lively part in its life.
          The creation of suitable, useful and ideologically correct films is sponsored, and the untruth is sought out more meticulously.

          A special pride of the Bagius filmography are documentaries and scientific films.

          Music, literature, visual arts
          Everything is pretty standard here.

          There is a set of classics.

          There is an arsenal of excellent propaganda materials (WE WILL NOT FALTER IN THE BATTLE FOR OUR CAPITAL, OUR NATIVE COUNTRY IS DEAR!

          There is mediocre literature, it is being filtered little by little...

          Rubbish and politically harmful works are not published, and even banned.

          Bagiussia is a somewhat ambitious superpower with a questionable diplomatic reputation.
          It rakes small countries into its sphere of influence, making them its minions, although some of them (Cuba and Madagaskar, for example) may be considered "adopted children".

          China is a hostile militarized state with which we constantly have diplomatic and sometimes armed conflicts.
          Between us there is no border recognized by both sides; de facto, the border runs along the line of the Manchurian-Mongolian front (it's territory is Chinese territory, which is marked in red on the map)

          Central Asia is our vassal, sometimes the object of China's encroachments.

          The USA is a moderately hostile state, as well as an important ideological adversary. We constantly vie for influence in small countries and insult each other every Saturday.

          Africa is an unfortunate battlefield between the three superpowers and a number of major powers.
          The areas of our greatest interest are marked in red.

          Madagascar is our former colony. Today it is our vassal and historical friend.

          The Middle East is our turbulent element of the sphere of influence, which is claimed by plutocrats, the Chinese and obscurantists.

          India is a large country semi-neutral to us.

          South America is filled with US puppets, although from time to time our people come to power in different countries. The fight goes on.
