Vision Statement: Republic of Baltica

The Baltican Dream

For years, the lands of the Baltican people were poor, rural and undeveloped, with the people only being united by a false sense of statehood. This, is when the Germanics arrived. No one knows from which lands these people came from, nor what their intentions were, but they would quickly come into control of most of the Baltican Peninsula. This is when they would unite these lands under what they called, The Kingdom of Baltica. This state would evolve through the centuries into a parliamentary monarchy, until its last King; King Miglas would be ousted by the parliament, which subsequently took control of the nation and declared it a Republic. This so called "Republic" was ruled entirely by the Germanic Balts, which over two centuries of rule, would emerge as the powerful upper class of Baltica. This fledgling Republic would unofficially come to an end, when a powerful military general, Jonas Sigis, would take control of the nation. He would die the same year he came into power, supposedly assassinated, and replaced with the nations current Dictator, Algridas Banis.

Although the Nation currently is as stable as it can be, its main aim in this century of technological dominance, is to emerge as a capable power, specifically by becoming a center of industry and economic growth. Although the nation currently relies heavily on its large Agricultural Sector, Algridas wishes to expand the small but extremely capable manufacturing sector. To do this, Algridas wishes to take advantage of Balticas cheap labor and strategic location to attract foreign Investment as well TNC's to develop Baltica as a whole. 

Furthermore, Baltica aims to finally deal with the large social-political divide between its people. Currently, both the native Balts and the Germanic Balts are up at arms, both wishing to become the primary "rulers" of Baltica. The Balts believe that the Germanics are using them as literal slave labor, to fill their own pockets, whilst the Germanics heavily believe that the Balts are nothing more than free loaders, benefiting from their hard work. Weather Algridas will appease the Balts and grant them more autonomy and a way into power, or join his Germanic kin in seizing full control of Baltica is uncertain...

Lastly, the final aim of the Republic of Baltica is the "National Spine" plan. This plan, proposed by the Baltica parliament all the way in 1949, is a National Infrastructure project , aiming to unite the Capital city (Goja), to the rest of the nation. This project has been plagued by civil war , political instability and corruption. However, with Algridas's dream of creating a powerful and capable Baltica, it is a necessary project to unite the rural poor, to the Industrial rich...
