Alexander Men, the Father of the Divine Mandate of Russia from 1963 to 1989. Men, an Orthodox priest, formed a religious-anarchist movement in Siberia in 1963 in the disorganized territories of the far north. Through a series of skilled maneuvers (both diplomatic and military), Men managed to unify all of Russia (outside the territories held by the Reich) under his control by 1973. Men's government, despite being extraordinarily religious, was also quite tolerant of ethnic and religious minorities and Men tended to be a light-touch ruler for the most part. Men would have a more hostile relationship with Germany, but following the ascension of Helmut Schmidt to power in 1980 Men would pursue a diplomatic course surrounding the Reickcommissarat Moskowien. A plesbicite was held in 1982 which saw that territory peacefully returned to Russian rule, on the condition of demilitarization of its westernmost border. Men, notably, declined to return the capital to Moscow, instead keeping it in Siberia. He would (along with Schmidt) win a Nobel Peace Prize in 1982. Men would to on to retire in 1989 and died of cancer in 2006. Men remains a revered man both within Russia and abroad as a man of strong faith who nonetheless did not use it to oppress others or drive him to war. He also attracted praise for his general humility-the photo above is in front of his residence in Siberia, a simple cabin in the woods-and desire to care for the people of Russia.
