The Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic (Russian: Российская Советская Федеративная Социалистическая Республика, transliterated as Rossiyskaya Sovetskaya Federativnaya Sotsialisticheskaya Respublika [RSFSR], Mandarin: 俄罗斯苏维埃联邦社会主义共和国), also called the Russian Soviet Federated Socialist Republic, the Russian SFSR and the RSFSR for short, is the largest and most populous republic of the Union of Sovereign Socialist Republics.



The Russian SFSR was hit the hardest out of all of the few surviving republics, as it held most of the central Soviet leadership and military targets. However, most Siberian and Far Eastern regions managed to fare the nuclear war relatively intact and keeping the local government from falling apart in the first few weeks.

The creation of the Union of Sovereign Socialist Republics[]

Contact was established with officials from the Kazakh Soviet Socialist Republic in December 1983 and the 131st Motor Rifle Division were sent into the Republic, securing remaining roads and railways into the Republic. Talks quickly commenced on restructuring the Union and on December 23, 1984, the Union of Sovereign Socialist Republics was proclaimed. Both Republics agreed that they would claim that lands lost in the war were rightfully theirs and no other country could lay claim to these areas.


The RSFSR has enjoyed stability over the next 25 years, rebuilding its infrastructure and expanding its industry. The Ural Territory was established in 1986 and RSFSR officials extract oil and gas from the once lawless region. Talks on unifying the territory with the Republic were slated to commence in 2011. Afterwards, the Ural Territory was readmitted into the RSFSR, with Surgut being demilitarized.


The majority of the population is Slavic, with Russians holding the majority. Han Chinese have also become a strong minority, as well as the Mongolians and Uyghurs becoming a high-numbered majority.
