[Vision Statement] The People's Republic of Khanikstan


Recommended Posts

The People's Republic of Khanikstan is a one party Communistic state run by the Khanikstan Communist Party (KCP) that took ruling power over the fallen government of Azbekistan six short years ago. Led by His Dear Respected Supreme Leader Hamad Khan, the only son of Kerim Kahn, the original voice of the Khanikstan Revolutionaries. For centuries Azbekistan was ruled by a theocratic state with very little tolerance for opposing religious views, with Atheism being punishable by execution under the Divine Law. Harshly enforced religious ideals were so strong, that technological advancement was closely monitored by the Clergy to ensure nothing surpassed God's intended will for the human experience. Women's rights were non-existent with most being married away in their youth. Livestock was outlawed for consumption, including wool and milk (this struck controversy when the Azbekistan government imported livestock to feed their armies while still punishing the average citizen with death if they were to do the same). Public education was Creationist focused and heavily anti-science, with propaganda describing the international community as a wasteland of sinners. The Azbekistan people were brainwashed through religious indoctrination and viscous propaganda along with a strict Totalitarianism regime.

In the mid 1960s, a nationwide famine after a historic drought began to expose holes in the Azbekistan's grip of power. Kerim Khan was a foreign novelist who was accepted access into the country under a special visa to help write the biography of His Prophet Isiktan Aydogan's  (The functional Head of State between 1967 to 1987). A charming speaker and excellent writer, Kerim Kahn quickly rose to power within Isiktan Aydogan's social circle and after 2 short years of working closely together, he was named as his Lead Advisor. Kerim Kahn had convinced than Head of State Isiktan Aydogan that the lack of scientific progression in the country will be the downfall of the mighty Azbekistan empire as their vast amount of undeveloped land could be quick targets for foreign interests who don't see Azbekistan as capable of defending itself. Aydogan agreed with Khan, and publicly addressed the nation and proclaimed Kerim Kahn as "God's Mighty Whip", an unofficial title given from a prophet to a man trusted by God himself to lead armies in God's name. This was the second piece of the puzzle that began Kerim Kahn's rise. A key mistake Isiktan Aydogan made in the years leading up to the revolution was not familiarizing himself with Kerim Khan's background. Due to the harsh blackout of any foreign media entering their borders, Aydogan only knew Kahn from his fictional work "His Holy Fist", a book about a young Imam who goes on a quest with the son of God. Kerim Khan was a well spoken and highly acclaimed communistic scholar and novelist who had many published books supporting a communist revolution as the sole path forward.

Once he was given access to the Azbekistan Armed Forces, Kerim Kahn made the decision to redirect 8,000 men (approximately one-third of the nations military)  to the western mountain town of Manahal under the orders to protect the critical infrastructure in the city in case of a foreign invasion. With Manahal hosting 20% of the Azbekistan population but 60% of the countries manufacturing of strategic resources, it was the perfect place for Kahn to begin planting the seed of his revolution. over the next couple of years, communistic literature was exchanged openly among the Manahal garrison. Certain religious laws were quietly ignored amongst the soldiers, and eventually the city of Manahal under the careful calculation of Kerim Khan. The first was the introduction of dairy products, like milk and cheese, followed by access to more modern medical care banned by the state.

While not holding any position of power of over the people of Manahal, he was still revered as a leader. Isiktan Aydogan's blessing from God was enough to build the kindling in the fire of revolution. When the drought of 1972 started and the resulting famine of 1976, the people of Manahal thrived under the leadership of Kerim Kahn who predicted the drought would leave the farmland untenable. He was able to grow the originally small herd of livestock into a respectable breeding ground. Once the food shortages started, he began discreetly allowing beef into the diet of the garrisoned troops. By time the famine was at its peak, the Manahal food reserves we're still holding up thanks to the strategic rationing and access to meat - an option no other city in the country had access to. Kerim Khan purposefully kept Isiktan Aydogan in the dark with the happenings in Manahal, and as far as he was aware they were suffering just as bad as the rest of Azbekistan. With a population on the brink of starvation, he mobilized the well-fed army to the neighboring villages with bundles of meat and low quality bread. It wasn't long until the power of the church started to unravel, while Aydogan struggled to solve the food crises. By 1972, Kerim Khan and the 8,000 men had secured around a third of all of Azbekistan's land and the entire western region. The communist revolution was quiet, but the citizens had an easy choice to make since Kerim Khan could promise food, and the consumption of that very food would lead to death under Azbekistan rule.

On December 28th, 1972, Kerim Khan officially kicked off the revolutionary war when he ordered 2,000 men to enforce a blockade at the central city of Horuam, a strategic move that would cripple the supply lines of the eastern cities. With the move being the first the Azbekistan government had ever heard of a revolution thanks to Khan's careful planning and Aydogan's misplaced trust, the revolutionaries had plenty of time to secure a stronghold at Horuam and the nearby infrastructure. The first bullet wasn't fired until months later at the First Invasion of Varrock. The war continued at a stand still with either side unable to gain any permeant ground for nearly 30 years until a targeted air strike at a remote military safehouse killed Kerim Khan in 2012 at the age of 71 after 3 failed assassination attempts in 3 weeks. While the Azbekistan government began pushing propaganda celebrating the achievement of killing the communist leader, his son Hamad Khan seamlessly took his place at the chariot of his fathers war machine. A lot more hard headed and extreme with his ideas, he quickly wrapped up the war by using unethical practices like the bombing of war hospitals to accelerate the Azbekistani's surrender. Most importantly, his swift victory of the seemingly impenetrable Varrock in the Third Invasion of Varrock in 2014 was a strong declaration to the Azbekistani's and Revolutionaires alike that just like his father, Hamad Khan was God's Mighty Whip. On August 15th, 2015, Hamad Khan accepted the unconditional surrender of Azbekistan and named himself Supreme Leader of the Peoples Republic of Khanikstan.

 

Six years later and the country is facing another food crises. With an abundance of undeveloped land and infrastructure devastated by decades of war and the gradual rise of Azbekistan Loyalists, Hamad Khan and the Khanikstan Communist Party have these challenges to make:

  1. Create a road network connecting all major cities and began planning on urban expansion
  2. Continue the fight against the possible Azbekistan Loyalist Rebellion
  3. Invest in public infrastructure to ensure all citizens have access to plumbing and clean water
  4. Open borders for wurld trade
  5. Solve food crises
  6. Hamad Khan and his father supported women's rights, but getting the culture to support them is a different story. Integrate women into the workforce.
  7. Integrate foreign private businesses to help grow the economy.
  8. Create and maintain a proper defense force and restructure the highly militarized state more efficiently
  9. Invest heavily in public education and the importing of academics to help solve the countries brain drain
  10. Gain respect on the wurld stage as a developed nation through sports
