Rise of Reds (Russia Victory)
Here we are. Rise of the Reds, Russian victory.
- The premise here is that Russia was able to defeat the ECA quickly before US forces could arrive en masse. Also, a separate war broke out between China and the US, the strain of total war causing both sides to fall into civil war, which Russia exploited to the fullest extent. Moscow has since annexed the lands of the former Soviet Union, plus Finland and Alaska, and has reformed itself into the Eurasian Federation, the world's sole hyperpower.
- Eurasia is essentially a new Russian Empire, but better than the one the Tsars ruled - Suvurov's reforms have cleaned up the economy and wealth does trickle down the the people on the street. Interestingly, Eurasia is somewhat democratic with guarantees for dissidents, such as stringent protections for freedom of speech and assembly, but they are ultimately irrelevant, as Suvurov does not plan on holding elections anytime soon.
- The ECA and the US have both been shattered into tiny pieces, and the Western style of democracy is essentially dead. The United States itself is still around, but reduced to a rump state centered on the Rust Belt, and addled with urban decay, economic recession, rampant crime and drug use, and political corruption - not too much unlike Russia during the Yeltsin years.
- The Chinese Communist Party has been forcefully removed from power, and Eurasia is now working with the new Chinese Union State to "deprogarm" the Modern Way out of the Chinese populace. Port Arthur has also been reannexed to serve as a Russian Pacific base - which has triggered Japan to amend their constitution to allow them an official military again.
- South America has unified under Brazilian rule and is thinking of becoming the next United States, and India is considering breaking away from the Eurasian sphere.
- Eurasia is content with letting Africa govern itself, taking an advisory approach in combating the GLA.
- General Aleksandr, the hero of the war who won victory after victory in Europe, has very different vision for what the Russian people should do with the victory he gave them. Aleksandr believes that his victory is one that reverses the humiliations and setbacks that Russia has suffered for a century, and now that final victory is here, Russia should reap the rewards fully. The Russians have proved themselves the superior civilization, and thus are entitled to whatever they can take from the rest of the world. Those that oppose the Russian people should be crushed underfoot, and if they are not, then the Russian people themselves have lost the right to rule.
- Aleksandr's faction was wide support from many Eurasian army units, and should they decide to take action to "save Russia from itself"... oh boy.
