I like this a lot.The politics of the Far Eastern Republic, while hardly authoritarian or particularly corrupt, are considerably fractious. Having been carved from Russia following the Third World War as a buffer state, partly due to considerable hand-wringing between China and the United States, the Far Eastern Republic covered a region which even before the War was extremely sparsely populated. As the Wei Recovery Program was implemented, the native population soon had to contend with large groups of immigrants - chiefly from China, Japan, Central Asia, Bangladesh and North America.
By 2067, two informal electoral groups have emerged: the "Washington Bloc", aligned with the United States and its allies, and (more broadly speaking) the West, and the "Harbin Bloc", more closely aligned with the People's Republic of China. As of the sixth convocation, the Harbin Bloc is in government, although it does not hold a majority on its own (despite the sheer prominence of the Social Democrats and the Progressive Alliance) and had to court the recently-formed Party of Regions in order to form a coalition govenrment. The Washington Bloc waits for 2070, hoping to capitalize on the Social Democrats and Progressives' rivalry and make up for its meager results in the 2066 general election.

A tad worse. While they tend to tone down their rhetoric in public so as to not be forcibly dissolved under the conditions of the Treaty of [INSERT CITY HERE], some of their most hardline members are outright neo-Nazis.And is the Party of the People’s Will anything like the OTL LDPR?
India was a Russian ally in the Third World War, and the subsequent division and economic conditions resulted in many inhabitants of the Indian subcontinent going to the Far East for a better life.One question- how did Indians end up in the Far East?

Depends on who you ask. Certain people will echo the official position - the the MF-SFE is there to make sure the terms of the Treaty of Singapore are followed, assist the weak the Soviet central government with security and stabilizing the country, while working to suppress warlordism and the flow of weapons out of the country. Critics will say the MF-SFE is there to keep the flow of resources going and to look after purely economic interests. All depends on perspective.What is the long term goal for the Soviet occupied territory? Occupation until the USSR recovers and reforms, or setting up democratic nations?
