The German considered the Baltic countries as historical german lands and as such were subject to the focus of the colonisation efforts of the reich. they promoted the areas around Riga, Curland and western estonia for colonisation, they built several resort towns there and tolerated the local populace in cities, at least those who weren't jew, disabled or "political dissidents", criterions that still encompassed nearly 400,000 people in the baltic countries, who were all killed, by late 1945 all the "undesirable" population of the reichskomissariat had been exterminated. But one couldn't stay that for the hinterland. As the war went on the reich's economy became more and more dependent on cheap forced labour, who often weren't paid at all, when the soviet union became too weak to pose any threat to germany, the economy was too reliant on what were effectively slaves (and would officialy become slaves in 1946 following a decree from the fuhrer), by 1944 the Reich worked over 7 million forced labourers, and that number rose considerably with the reconstruction efforts, by the late 40s the number would stabilize to about 15 million in the metropolitan until the start of the civil war, however the horrendous work conditions caused the death of many of these slaves, and the reich was in constant need of replacement, after the soviet war the german companies prefered slaves from the east rather than forced labourers from France, Switzerland or Belgium. While the ukrainian or muscovite reichskomissariat were far more populous, the higher stability and control of Ostland and the Annexed Polish lands made them the main source of forced labor, there over 1/3rd of the pre war population was enslaved. Quotas had to be filled, as many able bodied (officially over 16 years old and not disabled, effectively younger men were taken) men had to be deported to the reich for work, in the countryside military groups, sometime police forces, other times Einsatzgruppen were tasked to fill these quotas, a task they dedicated themselves to, and with virtually no repercussion for crimes, they often commited atrocities, if a town couldn't fill the quotas, all crops would be stolen, something that was sometime even done when they were filled. And if, by misfortune, a german soldier was shot, the task forces often would at best randomly kill 10 people, at worst, and it was often the case, burn the whole town to the ground. While in theory members of the SS and Orpo had to follow strict procedure, SS leaders and Orpo Officiers had a lot of power, consquently corruption was rampant and wealthy inhabitants of cities could avoid roundups. While High ranking nazi members had high hopes for the Colonization of the east, it turned out to be negligible, the short economic boom after the war dissuaded german from moving to the east despite government incentives. The colonization was first focused on the recently annexed polish territories, and eventually progress was made there, thanks to mass killing and deportation of poles the Wartheland and Weichseland had a german majority by the early 50s, but this process was much slower in the east (with the exception of gotenland, where 95% of the local population was killed or deported), the german government managed to attract a quarter million german on the baltic coast, but it was much harder in the byelorussian hinterland, where the few colonists lived in gated communities.The government awarded large plots of land to veteran, in a way not dissimilar to how Rome used to treat her veterans. They often worked many slaves, as plantations had 20 slaves in average. The reich faced a tough resistance, as nearly all inhabitant of the hinterlands had lost a close relative to the german genocidal acts, sadly the Reichskomissariat was in an unfortunate position as both a location with a strong resistance, contrary to the Polish occupied territories, and close to the reichs, contrary to the Muscovite and Caucasian RKs, as a result the SS decided to make it an exemple of stability, and they conducted particularly brutal anti partisans operation, in Byelorussia they would select an area several hundred km² large and kill and burn everything inside it, then repeat this a few months later somewhere else, these brutal operations claimed the lives of a quarter million people. But it strained the german forces, despite the relative stability of Ostland, police forces often couldn't reach many areas quick enough to arrest partisans, especially in the numerous swamps of the region. The occupation force also had a high rate of Sexualy transmitted diseases from rapes, diseases that were made worse by the medicinal delay the Reich had compared to the USA and UK, as many antibiotics couldn't be produced in suffiently large quantities for all the armed forces.
