Kremlin 2017: Russian Political RP [OOC/OPEN]

Postby Russkiya Svyachena » Tue Jun 18, 2019 8:35 pm

The Russian Federation has risen from the ashes of the broken Soviet Union. The crippled economy is steadily improving, while democracy is certainly flawed. Gone are the days of communism, with the Presidency being the face of capitalist reform, while the State Duma is clinging on to old communist ideas in an eternal gridlock. Outside, foreign countries are closely looking at the Russian Federation, and whether or not it can regain its former glory.

Make a name for yourself in this mess of a state. Try to bring democracy… or not. Do you want to go back to old communist ideals, or do you want to move Russia forward. Is this is end of the glory days of Russia? Or is this the dawn of a new era? You decide.

Betrayals await, dirty politics awaits, and certainly corruption awaits. Many want power, many want freedom, many want capitalism, many want communism. The fate of the Russian Federation rests in the hands of you, will you be part of the Duma? The president’s cabinet? Member of the military? Wealthy oligarch? You must write yourself into the history of this ever dynamic state, and massive nest of chaos known as Moscow.

The federation consists of Republics, Krais, Oblasts, and Okrugs. It is you who must write the fate of these in the greater game of Kremlin politics.


Rules
  • No godmodding, this means you can’t RP anything other than what you apped for without permission. This also means you only RP your character’s actions, and not reactions or effects of your character’s actions
  • No metagaming, don’t pretend to know something IC your character wouldn’t
  • The Russian Federation is a flawed democracy, keep in mind election results may or may not represent actual public opinion of your character
  • Unlike western countries, murders and mysterious disappearances are somewhat common in Russian politics, however, all players involved need to agree on such an event, and requires OP or Co-OP permission to execute
  • Assume everything happened similar to IRL until 2000, when Putin first came to power
  • We’ll be starting off with the main Russian political parties, United Russia, Communist, LDP, and AJR. Creating a new political party will be rare and only happen in certain unique RP scenarios, and requires OP approval.
  • Have fun, this thread was inspired from the other “2017” RPs, but Russian politics is unique in that nothing is as it seems and things can get real dirty real fast… enjoy!

Timeline
Everything happened as it did in our timeline until 2000, where instead of Putin’s rise to power, a man by the name of Sergei Tikhonovich Zholdin succeeded Boris Yelstin as the president of Russia. He headed the United Russia party and was elected president, appointing war minister Onufri Nechayev as PM. Zholdin continued as a popular president and a face of capitalist reform, against the Communist dominated State Duma. After his 3rd term, Zholdin stepped down and Nechayev was elected president, along with the United Russia party finally winning a majority in the State Duma. The party and Nechayev remained strong and somewhat dictatorial, until 2016, when Nechayev announced his decision to step down. His successor, Vassili Zhirov, the former Minister of Finance, was appointed president by the State Duma, as elections had not begun yet. Due to the shift on power, the State Duma exercised its power to postpone elections in a somewhat corrupt move by the United Russia Party to get a better organization of leadership. Presidential elections will now take place on December 1, 2017.

If you want some experience I’m running a light political rp the Supreme Court rp. It’s similar to Washington rp so all political figures after 2000 have slightly different names or are replaced

I kinda want to do a politician that he is sure getting closer to the rest of Europe will only benefit Russia, though, this type of thinking is probably uncommon there

Character App

Name: Viktor Yakovich Serebrov
Age: 40
Gender: M
Race: Russian
Home subdivision (): Moscow Oblast,
Position in Government: Prime Minister
Party: Party of Growth
Short Bio:
Viktor was born in Moscow to a rich family and went to school abroad in England before the collapse of the Soviet Union, where he went and served on the Federation Council. He said he aims to bring the power of growth up to a major party through his appointment by the President. He was a good legislator on the federation council, and while writing no laws, he was a fierce debater and was feared by many as a massive political obstacle, as he could easily filibuster any law. He was a dangerous man to cross, and remains so. In 2016 he met with the President of Russia and was appointed PM.
Intentions: improve Russia’s social and economic aspects, but do anything to stay in power

This isn’t done yet, I’m still waiting to improve it. It’s sort of like a tag

I’d like to see where people are with RP before allowing them to make a second character

Also, I sent a TG to Washington OPs

It wouldn’t have as big of a stronghold, since it’s a politician support party rather than an ideological one. However, Zhirov is still UR and the Duma would have a UR majority, albeit a smaller one

I haven’t made a political map or Duma party makeup chart yet, since that is subject to change based on who apps. Once I get the IC up, I’ll make a rough map and chart, but you’ll be allowed to change parties on there if it’s an NPC stand in
