The People's Republic of Bulgenstaz Factbook


Recommended Posts

Beginning note: this factbook will be in development for probably some time, and is liable to revision, alteration, and (oh no) retcons.

The Bulgenstazi are composed of a couple of significant ethnic groups. The primary group is the Bulgenstazi (which is generally used as a national identifier, but has been known to cause conflict in rural areas regarding other ethnicities) with the more inland Uzekstazi and the Kozak. The groups have largely divided themselves into different regions, but are similar in religion, skin tone, and language. Cultural practices are allowed by the government, and it is not uncommon for a dispute to be solved in a traditional manner before a legal courthouse. Much of the Bulgenstazi language system derives from Dniesterian, but with an ethnic twist which slowly developed into a different language entirely. Generally, however, Dniesterian and Bulgenstazi are very similar in general structure.

Bulgenstaz was named Bulgenstaz after the river it's original city Khenkhourt was based upon (the Bulga river). In precolonial times the nation had been largely split into citystates which frequently warred against each other, but in the face of mass assimilation banded up together to fight in the Bulga League; Khenkhourt spearheaded this revolt. Ultimately the natives were unable to stop the foreigners, and after the "Red Harbor Incident" rebellion ceased to hold much ground outside the occasional jungle guerilla attack. In the end, the Kozak region maintained the strongest resistance to the Dniesterian imperialists up until the discovery of oil, where they were rapidly (and forcibly) assimilated. This mass use of force is a primary factor the Bulgenstazi Liberation War in1938.

Generally, however, Dniesterian and Bulgenstazi are very similar in general language structure. It is possible to say Bulgenstazi cultures are as much separating and forming new identities as others are coming together, this cultural drift is primarily due to lack of urban centers, while the urban centers themselves contribute to the sharing of ethnic values.

Considerable portions of the Bulgenstazi population are in Kehnkhourt, the capitol of Bulgenstaz. Kehnkhourt is also the seat of the Bulgen Rouge, the communist party of Bulgenstaz. Outside of the capitol (and major cities) the population percentages are far lower, with many kilometers of Bulgenstaz having no population whatsoever. Highways exist between the capitol and other major cities such as Uzkow, Bezna, Orvow, and Petrovosk, but otherwise transit is mainly on small country roads between vast swaths of jungle, which isolates much of the populace, and supplements the development of local cultures.

The vast majority of the small Bulgenstazi military is naval. These crafts are built with the Dniester-Bulgenstaz Union as a measure of defense between the two countries. The Bulgenstazi fleet is rarely used for combat and is mostly to secure economic holdings in the ocean around it.
