Major Nation-states of Eurasia and their leaders, circa 2081
1. The All-Russian Union
Dominant ideologies: National Bolshevism, Gumilyovism, Contemporary Rodnovery
Leader: Dictator Chelpanov Turgenev
In the news last week because they've canonised the waxy corpse of Putin, instead of hunting the last Siberian Tiger to extinction so the Dear Leader can have its head mounted as a conversation starter. Not many people like the Union, and that's fair, since the Union despises anyone who isn't bloodletting to see whatever future is still in front of them. Plot twist; it's all dark.
2. Holy Chechnya
Dominant ideologies: Islamist-fascism, Basayevist Nationalism, Islamic Orthopraxy, Neo-Wahhabism
Leader: Caliph Sulimbek Avtorxanov (?)
Nobody's actually seen an actual Chechen in years. Border guards near Azerbaijan insist that they've seen a man in triangular black cloaks 'walking in the air' above the burial pits, whatever that's supposed to mean. For such an extremist boogyman, the Chechen's seem to like keeping to themselves. Maybe the rumours are right, that they're busy performing some sort of mega-ritual to bring forth the Second Fall. Bah. Pass the drink, my head is still ringing.
3. The Golden Horde Eternal
Dominant ideologies: "Buddhist" Theocracy, Pan-Mongolianism, Thuzanism
Leader: Lama Thubten
How could you not fall in love with the romanticisation of Genghis Khan, the barbarian who ruled singlehandedly from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Who cares if this new attempt has only just started to claw it's way out of Kalmykia, they're ambitious, you gotta admit!
4. Autonomous Administration of Tibet
Dominant ideologies: Tibetan Nationalism, Agrarian Militancy
Leader: State Administrator Woeten Drakpa
According to state propaganda, the AAT "won" its independence, which I guess is true, seeing as how they essentially fell into a localised government after the Fall. Neither of their larger neighbours had any particular use for it, since the Roof of the World was now pockmarked with eerily smooth semicircle craters. There is growing resentment within the communities as the refugee crisis worsens.
5. New Republic of Free China
Dominant ideologies: Democratic Confederalism, Pluralism
Leader: Chairwoman of the Revolutionary Command Council Lian Xieren
The economic stresses of the Philippine War and President Yimu's botched introduction of "Global Market NuEconomics with Militant Characteristics" finally proved too much for the 'definitely communist' PRC to handle, and the Gutter Revolution made sure it'd be a massacare for both sides. The resulting hole in the global economy wasn't necessarily a great boon for any nation, but their road to utopia has been paved in counterrevolutionary blood for a while now.
6. State of Free Bukhan
Dominant ideologies: Pan-nationalist Humanism, Neo-Ilminism
Leader: "Ku Hee-Ra" (Ki Chi'un, Ka Sun-Yung & Nu Ji-Tae)
Legends still mutter about a problematic family that used to be in charge of this place. Had a girls name. It took over the South too. Keep in mind this was all way before the Fall, so it must've been a lot easier. We don't bother them, they don't bother us, simple. Oh, uh, unless they want coal. It's recommended you don't put up a fight if they want the coal you have, seeing as how many of them are descendants of prisoners of war. No nerve endings to speak of.
7. Andhra Pradesh
Dominant ideologies: Naxalism, Ganapathism, Maoism
Leader: Chariman Mohun Talavalakar
Oh god oh fuck oh fu
