History:After the collapse of the United States of America, a group of revolutionary individuals seized the Alaskan capital of Juneau, renaming it Scipio. These individuals included the writer and academic Alaric Angevin, military historian John Charmley, former US Congressman Martin Dubravka, and Canadian general Jooas Skarsgard. They announced that Scipio was a free city, and that they were constructing a socialist society bent on avoiding the mistakes of former socialist states open to people of any race or nationality. As multiple world governments fell, and as many countries ceased to exist, many people from all over the world, such as Chinese Lieutenant-Colonel Jin Caan, Australian missile technicians Harry Campbell and Rebecca Curtis, architect Matteo Salucami, and the entire Wyoming junior-league baseball team, emigrated to the country to free themselves of the old oppressive forms of power. The country was named Populum Liberum-free people, in Latin-to symbolise that all citizens would never have to bow to a man they called master, and that they would contribute to society for the common good and of their own free will, not out of selfish individualism or forced by corporate greed. The Republic of Populum Liberum became part of the United Socialist Nations, an alliance of fellow socialist nations, with Vozhd Alaric Angevin occupying a key seat on the Politburo as Commandant-General. USN aid has significantly sped up the process of expansion and industrialisation in the Republic.
Geography
Continent:North America
Land Area:50,694.21 sq. km
Terrain:The terrain is a combination of clusters of small hills, mountain ranges, and wide open plains. One of the last two glaciers in North America provide water for most inland cities, but much of the ground is of too poor quality to grow crops or raise livestock. As a result, much of the country is urban, with most of the population congregating in cities.
Highest Peak:Denali, 20,310 meters
Lowest Valley:Corpse Gorge, -5,978 meters
Climate:Due to the increase in global warming, throughout most of the year the country is quite pleasant, with clear skies and a temperature well above freezing. In the winter, there is often heavy snow or sleet, which can blanket most of the country. Technological advancements means that the effect on industry is minimal.

Economy
Description:The Republic of Populum Liberum utilises a highly centralised economy, with most industries and businesses nationalised, but the government recognises that private businesses can adapt to foreign markets more easily that state-run businesses. Under the Dubravka Plan, named after the veteran economic planner which drew inspiration from the NEP, private businesses receive generous subsidies from the government in exchange for keeping export prices at a similar level as nationalised businesses to maintain economic stability and employment. The progressive tax rate means that while entrepreneurship and ingenuity are encouraged, the less advantaged people are fairly taxed and have access to a variety of state welfare programs, and all citizens receive pensions at the age of 65. The state relies heavily on imports of coal, aluminium , petrol, and foodstuffs. Despite much of the country bordering the coast, fishing is practically non-existent due to the high levels of radiation in the water as a result of a sunken US nuclear submarine leaking radiation. The Republic also receives large periodic cash injections from unknown donors, but the country is not reliable on these grants and seeks to reach a position where this is no longer necessary. The country is currently entering a economic phase named 'The Great Expansion' by Dubravka, which focuses on expanding existing cities and infastructure, increasing the production of iron, uranium, and steel, and an increase in financial development. This new development has been spurred by the instructions of the USN Premier.
Average Yearly Income:$149.08
GDP:$1,487,414,790.00
GDP per Capita:$976.49
Industries:Major industries include the export of steel, the mining of uranium and iron, and tourists attracted by the natural beauty of the country. The state controls almost all primary and secondary industries, with private businesses mostly concentrated in the tourism, finance sector, and manufacturing sharing with state-backed enterprises. All foreign enterprises concerned with primary and secondary industries are banned. Despite the Republic occupying typically oil-rich Alaska, although substantive drilling has been undertaken no wells have been found.
Military
History:The Free Army of the People were a volunteer group of revolutionaries who helped secure the Alaskan capital, and defend the borders from the remains of the US Army, finally defeating them at the Battle of Dwight. The FAOP now consist of a small number of highly trained soldiers, who are primarily used for expeditionary offensives but are often deployed as defensive units. The FAOP also consists of a large number of lesser-trained reservists, who are mostly used in defence. The navy and air force are commanded separately from the FAOP, but the supreme commanders have good lines of communication and the Chief of the General Staff John Charmley oversee all combined military operations. Whilst Vohzd Angevin is a skilled military commander, all military matters are mostly handed by the experienced Supreme Commander Joaas Skarsgard, hotheaded Air Marshal James Brooke, and sage Fleet Admiral Jin Caan. Any and all detail about the FAOP's base of operations, tactics, and recent operations are forbidden to foreign visitors. The FAOP has often worked successfully in conjunction with other USN armed forces.
