Recent History

The Kingdom of Bulgaria was founded 1878 after the defeat of the Ottomans by the Russians working in concert with the Thracian rebels. Tsar Ferdinand abdicated after a scandal broke out in 1923 AD over his bisexuality, giving the throne to his son Tsar Boris III.


Tsar Boris is currently more like an absolute ruler of Thracia, with no Parliament and Prime Minister Kyoseivanov being more of a puppet.


The Bulgarian judicial system consists of regional, district and appeal courts, as well as a Supreme Court of Cassation and a Constitutional Court. In addition, there is a Supreme Administrative Court and a system of military courts. The Presidents of the Supreme Court of Cassation, Supreme Administrative Court and the Prosecutor General are elected by a qualified majority of two thirds from all the members of the Supreme Judicial Council and are appointed by the Prime Minister. The Supreme Juicial Council is in charge of the self-administration and organisation of the Judiciary.

The Constitutional Court is in charge of reviewing the constitutionality of laws and statutes brought before it, as well as the compliance of these laws with international treaties that the Government has signed. Parliament elects the 12 members of the Constitutional Court by a two-thirds majority, the members serve a nine-year term.


The southwest of the country is mountainous, containing the highest point of the Balkan Peninsula, peak Musala at 2,925 m, and the range of the Balkan mountains runs west-east through the middle of the country, north of the famous Rose Valley. Hill country and plains are found in the southeast, along the Black Sea coast in the east, and along Bulgaria's main river, the Danube in the north. Other major rivers include the Struma and the Maritsa river in the south. The Bulgarian climate is temperate, with cold, damp winters and hot, dry summers. The Balkan peninsula derives its name from the Balkan or Stara Planina mountain range which runs through the center of Thracia into the eastern parts of the Austrian Empire.


The Thracian military maintains several semirigids of 1910s design as their largest airships. The strongest and most important branch of the Thracian military is the Army, with the Navy and Air fleet being barely in existence. The Royal Navy is only composed of a few gunboats and destroyers, with a light cruiser being the largest ship. In addition, Thracia is allied with the German Empire and one German 'Zeppelin' is always based in Bulgaria.
