Prehistory and The Tsarist Era
The origin of humans occupying the area that is now the FRAUT is not well understood. Historians have reached a tenuous agreement that humans most likely traveled over the Pan-Slav Land Bridge, however there is little scientific evidence to support this theory.
Beginning in the 11th century, the first form of rule was a form of warlordism. The territory was split into hundreds of self governed territories with fluid borders without a centralized government. During this period, the borders of the FRAUT were constantly expanding or shrinking as warlords lost or gained new territory. Warlords gradually grew the territory, and some warlords gained large amounts of territory, and gained power. One warlord Teregos Iolov Feretoron gained an enormous amount of territory and power. Teregos declared he was the most legitimate ruler as he was drawing his power from the Grand Royalty, and by extension the heavens. He founded the Excellent Tsarist Monarch of New which declared it was the legitimate and god appointed ruler of the lands located around the modern FRAUT. By 1356, Tsar Teregos had begun a massive campaign to capture and unite the territory around the area of eastern Orda. This new state was known as Teregostov.
In May of 1360, the campaigns entitled the "Great Ruling" had come to a stalemate. Several warlords in the Northeastern Ordesian plains had formed a coalition known as the Guild of Terror to attempt to stop the self proclaimed Tsar. The four years of extensive conquest had left the Tsarist armies weakened and geographically isolated. It was in 1372 when the Guild of Terror conducted the Reclamation Prophecy to attempt to defeat the Tsars Forces. Initially, the Guid of Terror was able to destroy a large amount of the Tsar's border forces in the west, and reclaim a large amount of the territory held by the Tsar's Forces. However, by the mid 1370s the Warlord's alliance had broken down and the conquest had reached a stalemate. The pressure from the outside forces had weakened the Tsar's forces so heavily, that the government was in disrepair by the late 1370s. The peasantry was suffering from chronic famine, and in 1379 the peasantry led an uprising in major urban centers. The Tsar's palace was immediately sezied, and by September 1379 the government had completely lost control of the newly founded Tsarist nation. In April of 1380, the Tsar was captured by a band of peasants and was killed in the palace gardens.
After 1380, Teregostov had effectively disintegrated and had returned to local warlord control. The famine continued and an estimated 10 million were killed due to the chronic lack of food. This situation continued until at least 1430, when the Guild Of Terror's most powerful warlord, Ilisa Gahnt Ventorov used his force to reclaim the capital of Ghitolov and declared himself the new Tsar. He embarked on a series of policies to institute many of the old Tsarist government systems known as The Restoration of Glory. Under Tsar Ventorov I, order was restored and the north-western areas of Orda fell back into government control. This period is characterized by Tsar Ventorov's improvements by establishing a national selection system for government. He also nationalized the military, creating a new professional army that would be able to secure the land from other warlords. Among other reforms include creating a royal government under Grand Duchy Gtorof Haloisah MCCXI, and the introduction of a completely new regional tax system. Tsar Ventorov ruled until his death in 1497, after 47 years of relatively stable rule. Under his rule, the country was named "The Holy Tsardom of Ventorov"
Tsar Freteolohn III was selected in 1669. The Tsar had the most military power, but no money. The Merchant Class controlled the majority of the economic capital, but had no political capital. Both parties wanted each others' resources. In 1672, Tsar Fretelohn III began a reform known as the Mercantilist Revolution, which sought to include the richest merchants in a Royal council if they agreed to fund the Tsar's government. The first Royal Council was established in 1690, and proved widely successful. The Tsar invested heavily in infrastructure such as roads, which improved economic conditions in the country. This also meant that the merchant class became even more wealthy, leading to an almost uncontrolled period of wealth accumulation. By 1700, the merchants refused to pay tax and were using their immense funds to raise private armies to challenge the Tsar's Armies. The conflict that ensued was known as The First Great Sedition, which lasted until 1720, resulting in the Tsar's forces winning, largely due to their vastly better military experience. The Tsar instituted a powerful new tax system on merchants, which ensured their wealth accumulation would not be as unstoppable as before. Tsar Fretelohn died in 1745.
Tsar Greorva I succeeded Tsar Fretelohn III in 1746, and worked to standardize tax collection to fund the country. Merchants were targeted, although they still maintained a large influence on both the government, and especially in the border regions. Under his reign, he did very little to enhance the situation of the poor. While the great famines were only a distant memory, the majority of the country still lived as subsistence farmers who worked as surfs under wealthy landed merchants and royal elites. This would lead to agitation into the 1800s.
Revolutionary and Civil War Era
The early 1800s were characterized by a large amount of wealth inequality and un-opposed capitalist policy by the Tsarist government. By 1810, 1% of the population had over 85% of the country's wealth. This meant that the majority of the population, still subsistence farming continued to live in dire and abject conditions. In 1812, revolutionary and Marxist Igolnof Garu-Oritov traveled to the country to begin a campaign of Communist agitation. While Marxism saw a rise of the working class, Garu-Oritov primarily targeted the subsistence farmers to rise from their conditions. The Grozy Proper University Library Society launched a study group to examine Marxist Theory in March of 1815. This group was the main source of adaptations of Marxism which are still studied today. The group's leader was Head Librarian Mihanosof Ulyocosokit. By 1817, the group had produced hundreds of pamphlets of Marxism and began advocating a communist government by April of 1817. This group was officially known as: "The Society for a Free State, or SFFS". The Tsarist government became aware of the actions in 1818, and the group was arrested when a junior member was caught distributing pamphlets. This led to the arrest and execution of all members on July 3rd, 1818. Building on the works of the University Library Society, Garu-Oritov launched the Worker's Realization in 1830, in an attempt to establish Soviets across the country. While this was largely a peaceful effort, the government response was violent. The Tsarist armies responded to the mass protests in urban centers by shooting into the crowds in an attempt to disperse the rioters. While this did disperse them, 12 were killed in Grozny Proper, including two prominent professors. This led to widespread resentment among farmers. Garu Oritiov capitalized on the widespread disapproval of the government and continued the Worker's Realization until 1820 when agitation had completely shut down all factories and other industry. On the night of June 3rd, 1820 Garu-Oritov called the peasants and workers to the streets in a massive riot. The government responded with force again, and killed 23 protesters across the country.
The protests were defeated for a second time, but many historians regard this as the turning point towards revolution. Not only did Garu-Oritov continue agitation exploiting the conduct of the government, but hundreds of communist thinkers using the Library Societies' works began to establish secret paramilitary Soviets to fight back and destroy the government. In August of 1823, a secret government was established in Droshin known as the Soviet of the Federal United Peoples of East Orda or the SFUPEO. The SFUPEO gained support through an underground network of publishers and created Soviets and Worker's Groups. The SFUPEO gained the support of outside aligned Marxist nations who funneled in Weapons from Western Orda for use in an uprising. The government had become heavily corrupt by the late 1820s, largely because capitalists had taken control of the Nobility and were dictating government policy. This meant tax collection had ceased to exist, and almost all social services were removed. This led to a vast increase in wealth, but the poorest were relegated to serfdom and famine. In 1838, the SFUPEO gained the support of other outside sources, and established a new series of secret paramilitary units in all major industrial centers. Their plans to begin a revolution in the spring of 1838 were delayed by a massive famine that struck the country in 1839. Known as the Great Famine, the already impoverished peasant class died in large numbers. The famine lasted until 1860 when an El Nino brought rainfall back to the country. Over 18 Million peasants died in this period, as the Tsarist government elected not to take any action. The Tsar remarked famously: "I could shed 20 million dogs, the cage will be full still". This later became a rallying cry of revolutionaries during the Glorious War.
The SFUPEO had maintained the secret societies during the 1870s, but the organization had become so large that it was considered to be an open secret. The organization had become so large, that by this period a major division had begun to occur within the party. Traditional Marxists, known as the Loyalists argued that Marxism was more important to overthrow the Tsar as part of a global revolution. Unionists argued that Marxism would not be likely to succeed in other countries simultaneously, and that instigating a revolution within the country should be the priority of the country. The Loyalists were led by the Undersecretary for the propagation of Marxism, who in 1875 tried to purge the Unionists from the party by arresting the leader of the Unionists. The Unionists responded by seizing the secret party headquarters and capturing the Loyalists. The Loyalist leader then proceeded to kill the Unionist leader, May 24th 1875. As a result, the defacto Unionist Leader, Tayupol Harulosck declared the Loyalists to be enemies of the Communist party and ordered a secret execution of all captured Loyalists. Although the leader of the Unionists had been killed, the Loyalist leader had no party cadre to defend him, and he was subsequently captured and killed July 7th, 1875. The new leader of the Unionists, Magotoy Dulivilok renamed the party to the Federal Communist Party (FCP), and headquartered the party in Vladiroshov. The party remained in secret here until 1934, when the leader decided the government was weak enough to begin overt action. In August 9th 1934, Dulivilok declared the FCP to be the legitimate ruling party, and that night his Revolutionary Guard seized the town hall and established it as the new Federal Communist Part Headquarters. Because of the isolated nature of the new communist stronghold, the government was not able to use its troops to respond quickly.
The FCP began taking cities located in the Isolnost area, and by 1940 the FCP had gained control of almost 30% of the country in the west. The Tsarist government was powerless to stop the actions in the west, as large parts of the Tsarist Army and Navy had defected due to the lack of pay and harsh conditions. In 1949, the FCP's Revolutionary Guard attempted to take the then capital of Grotsky, and met a large force of Tsarist soldiers. The two sides briefly exchanged gun fire, but withdrew as a large mob chased both parties from the city. This began what became to be known as the Glorious War. In July of 1950, the FCP was renamed to the Federal Republic Government, and declared the western area of the country to be the Federal Republic. The Tsarist side declared war on the newly established government, marking the official beginning to the Glorious War. The Glorious War ended November 5th, 1967 with the Federal Republic Government destroying the final Tsarist position. The Olestian Accords were signed on November 23rd, 1967 officially ending the Monarchy in the Federal Republic.
The Federal Republic of Autonomous Unified Territories was established on the 22nd of March, 1968 with the Constitution Act 1968. The modern FRAUT's leader Vladdrejov Dimitrov (1968 - 1985), consolidated state power and relinquished communist ties. Owing this decision to the weak government after the Glorious War, First Secretary Dimitrov made attempts to centralize power and the new constitution created the modern FRAUT state, headed by the Presidium.
In 1970, the Federal Commissariat for State Security was founded, becoming the first professional intelligence service in the FRAUT. The Commissariat renounced their official role as a Secret police in 1995 and transitioned to civil support intelligence activities.
In July of 1993, the FRAUT's economic ministry announced the re-launch of Federal Automotive, and vehicles went on sale in August of 1994. Today, Federal Automotive is one of the most reputable and powerful automotive manufacturers in the world. Federal Automotive was previously incorporated under the name of Boulshain Motor Carriage, September 21st, 1919.
In October of 1997, the FRAUT launched Federal Defence, an amalgamation of Grotsi-Fretol Ordnance Works, and Ftyolok Gunnery. Federal Defence is currently the primary vehicle manufacturer for the Federal Republic Defence Forces. Federal Defence operates several heavy industrial plants in South Grozny and Nodorza. Since the early 1990s, the Federal Republic Defence Forces have initiated a complete reform of the military, abandoning old massed doctrine and focusing on small unit tactics, in line with other modern military forces. The FRDF has also instituted a downsizing and complete re-manufacturing of many vehicles, replacing older and basic designs with high technology and cutting edge weapon systems.
In September 1999, The Presidium officially denounced its status as a communist state and declared it was a "Single Party Market Focused State".
The FRAUT is a single party authoritarian dictatorship, where the First Secretary is head of the government. The First Secretary is bound by the constitution, and is also accountable to the Presidium. The First Secretary holds both legislative and executive power, having ultimate power to either reject or approve any legislation. The First Secretary is also considered the leader of the Presidium. The First Secretary selects a Second Secretary to act as the Second-In-Command of the government. The First and Second Secretary are not limited to any term of power, but are forced to resign their position when they are 70 years of age, regardless of time in office. The First Secretary is responsible to appoint the Presidium, and acts as an advisor to the Federal Republic Defence Forces. The First Secretary is only responsible to direct the overall strategy of the FRAUT Defence Forces, he has no actual authority to authorize operational level activities other than Special Operations Forces.
The Second Secretary is considered to be the second most powerful individual in the FRAUT, and is only accountable to the First Secretary and the Presidium. The Second Secretary assists the First Secretary in administration, but in practice is largely responsible for control of the Second Order Government. The Second Secretary is responsible to appoint the Ministers for the Second Council of the General Workforce. The Second Secretary assists in advising the strategy of the Federal Republic Defence Forces and the Federal Commissariat for State Security.
The Presidium is the overall legislative body of the FRAUT, and it consists of 18 Ministers, known as Under Secretaries, and the First and Second Secretary. The Presidium is an appointed body who are usually drawn from the Second Council of the General Workforce. Under Secretaries do not serve a fixed term, rather they remain in office unless removed until they are 70 years of age. The First and Second Secretary has the power to remove any member of the Presidium for actions contrary to the constitution or the power, which happens rarely. When a new First Secretary is appointed, there is rarely a change in positions in the Presidium. The Presidium proposes, debates, and approves all legislation in the FRAUT. Legislation is either produced at this level, but can also come from the Second Council of the General Workforce. However, it should be noted this is not a bicameral system, and legislation can originate at either level without having to come from the lowest level. While the First Secretary has the power to reject any legislation, this happens rarely in practice. This is because the Presidium is considered to be the consensus of the country, and generally works in tandem with the First Secretary.
The Second Council of the General Workforce is the body responsible for the overall administration of the country. It is delegated powers by the Presidium to approve Provincial matters, which are defined in the constitution. This level of government does not produce national legislation, and focuses solely on administrative matters related to the centralized government. The purpose of the Second Council is to ensure that the Presidium can focus on issues of national importance, and not be stuck performing mundane and routine legislative matters. The Second Council consists of 144 members, or 12 Ministers from each province. These 12 Ministers represent the range of bureaucratic departments in each province.
The FRAUT is divided into twelve provinces. The FRAUT is a powerful Federalist state, but provinces still exercise control over local matters to ensure governance is not delayed at the highest level by issues which are of little national significance. Each province is still required to submit proposed legislation through the Second Council of the General Workforce, but these matters are usually resolved at this level and only require a final signature at the highest level. Each Province is administered by a Provincial Under Secretary, who is a member of the Second Council. Each province consists of cities and towns. Cities are classified as communities who have over 100,000 residents. Towns are any organized community with less than 100,000 residents. All cities have municipal governments who are responsible for the day to day administration of their city. They are not technically a third level of government, as they derive their power from provincial statutes.
Law Enforcement and Judicial System
The Federal Republic Police
The FRAUT has a national police service known as the Federal Republic Police, responsible for the maintenance of Law and Order throughout the country. The Federal Republic Police was founded officially in 1968, previously law enforcement was handled at the provincial level. The nationalized police service serves to unify law enforcement effort and information sharing operations. The Federal Republic Police is divided into both geographic regions by province, and divisions which cover municipal or rural areas. As of 2016, The Federal Republic Police employs 125,784 members in various roles, with roughly 85% being employed in local policing operations.

National Movements Office
The FRAUT holds a census every eight years. The data is collected both by the National Movements Office, and by the Ministry of Demographic Measurements, and is conducted in every province. According to the 2016 census, the population of the FRAUT is 54,673,947. The majority of the population is located in the south-western coastal regions of the country, and the plains and border regions are sparsely populated. The climate in the central border regions is dry and arid, and is not hospitable and as such has little population.
Ethnicity and Language
FRAUT society is relatively homogeneous, with 83.5% of the population being of Slavic origin. The remaining groups include Ethno-Caucasian (15%), and other groups of Ordan origin. (1.5%).Most citizens are bilingual, as the FRAUT education system teaches both English and Russian. English is a more Russian centric form, often drawing from Russian phrases and humor that would not typically be used by other countries.
The FRAUT has no state religion, and the constitution enshrines the separation of church and state. Not only does the state not support religion, it actively campaigns against it, and as of 2016 only 1% of the population holds any religion, with over 99% being classified as atheist. Thanks to the heavily bureaucratic and scientific nature of the society, Republicans are not superstitious and most rituals in every day society originate from either military tradition or bureaucratic necessity. Most citizens view religion as simply unnecessary and illogical.
Education and Health
The FRAUT has traditionally had few support services offered by the state. After the adoption of communist doctrine by revolutionaries in 1949, the FRAUT began to explore nationalized education and healthcare. After the conclusion of the Glorious War in 1968, the constitution enshrined socialist values and a national education and healthcare system was established. Today, the FRAUT has an advanced healthcare and education system. Education is wholly state run and begins at age five, until adulthood at 20. The healthcare system is also fully public and all employees are responsible to the Ministry of Health and Wellness.
The Federal Republic Defence Forces is the central body which oversees the individual branches of the force. The FRDF has four branches, known as commands: The Land Force Command (Army), the Air Force Command, the Subsurface and Surface Naval Command (S/SNAVCOM), and the Space Uplink Command (S/UC). The Land Force Command is responsible for all land based operations, including those relating to the usage of aircraft. It is divided into five divisions, organized territoriality. The Air Force Command is responsible for all aerospace operations that do not involve army materiel. The Subsurface and Surface Naval Command is responsible for all naval operations, including the operation of any naval aircraft.
The FRDF employs 780,000 soldiers, sailors, and aviators in all branches. The largest branch is the Land Force Command, with over 387,000 soldiers. The Air Force Command has 135,000 members with the Naval Command employing 253,000 members. The Space Uplink Command has 5,000 members. The FRDF does not employ any reserve forces.
