Realized something: Andrei's first-born son is a certain Mikhail Andreevich, meaning that in the future, our favorite Australian would be Tsar of Russia.
 
I feel like Yekaterinburg is a bit too close to the Germans to be the new capital of Russia. Sure, a distance of 400 miles is nothing to laugh at (plus the Wehrmacht would have to cross the Urals), but I think the Russians would want to be as careful as possible when choosing a new capital. Omsk seems more likely IMO, assuming it hasn't been reduced to rubble.

Novosibirsk would’ve been better if much of it wasn’t destroyed along Stalin. I have considered Omsk but Yekaterinburg would have a far greater value to the Whites in a Cultural way, plus it’s still a large economic and administrative center of the region.

What about Irkutsk or Krasnoyarsk?

They could’ve also worked but those were Stalin’s territories, Irkutsk was practically a frontline city for most of the war so it wouldn’t be as suitable as Capital. Although Krasnoyarsk would be an option, it’s still not as symbolical as Yekaterinburg. They can always change the capital but for now the focus is pretty much on exalting the image of the Tsar as the new Russian leader.
 
Somehow I expected the White Russians to set up a new republic rather than bring back the old Tsardom. The Romanovs were never really liked by the people back in 1917 or even by the late 1940s, and I doubt that bringing them back would boost their popularity or make them more united.

The majority of the Russians just wanted the war to end and relief to the famine and disease in the war-torn nation. The Whites aren’t starting off particularly popular but there aren’t many alternatives left now.

As for the idea of a military-centered dictatorship, that’s more like the idea of Semyonov, who unfortunately had a mild accident and died. The Fascists are gone too, and so Kislitsyn was the only one left of the troika, and he was a very devout monarchist who led the Legitimists in Harbin so it’s expected he would bring back the Romanovs with the support of the Orthodox Church.
 
Here are some potential candidates for the election, who would you vote for?
