The Rise of the Union

The Global War on Terror in the early part of the 21st century wreaked havoc on an already unstable region. The northern states managed to avoid the eye of the United States as they continued to govern themselves. Afghanistan and Pakistan were not so lucky. The former combated the Taliban for two decades; with US involvement bringing a weak democracy after the Taliban government fell. In the time that followed, many nations held control over central Asia. This provided those governments with buffer regions and a cheap labor force of an already exploited population.

 

Central Asia began uniting. In their differences, they had one common element that bound them together: fear. Fear of more invasions and exploitation. The Soviets fought to steal Afghan resources. The Chinese sought to buy the rights to those same resources away from the native population.  Kazakh oil and natural gas was stolen by Russian corporations in the 21st century. Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and Tajikistan were relatively ignored as other “more important” nations received aid, while their people suffered decades after the fall of the Soviet Union. History recently repeated itself with Cochin, the Dragon Empire and even Tianxia.

 

Central Asia had to come together, akin to their time in the Soviet Union when they helped form one of the strongest nations in the world. Over time, they began to integrate their infrastructure and defense posture. They developed a customs union, a currency and began integrating their economies. Their external voice became united, as did their militaries. Kazakhistan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, Afghanistan and Pakistan would form a centralized government to handle these affairs, as well as developed a common and united internal policy. Culture would be able to flourish among the nearly 1,000 different tribal and ethnic groups that make up Azadistan.

 

After nearly 50 years under this centralized government, the leadership had fallen into the corrupt routine that makes up dictatorships. The institutions that had made Azadistan flourish were now falling apart. Inequality was rampant and the financial markets fell without a substantial recovery. Government reform was too little, too late, with much of it rolled back to suit the power brokers. The people were angry. They began rioting and fighting the government. A small civil war ensued against the established powers and the rising power of the people. The conflict ended with the Agreement of Täwelsizdik küni, which gave rise to the People’s Democratic Union of Azadistan and the Council of Ministers, led by Nursultan Nazarbayev.

The rise of a People's Democratic Union in Central Asia was seen by many with suspicion, given that it was still unclear what radical forces the civil war could have brought into power. For now, the Chūō-chō was tasked with keeping an eye on the developments, so as to give warning should any issues ensue in western Asia.

"The Japanese Empire extents recognition to the People's Democratic Union of Azadistan and hopes for good relations in the future."

"The Arabian Confederation formally recognizes this new Central Asian nation, and hope that the new-found stability and peace of the Central Asian region can last."

 

-Xerxes, Arab Confederate President

The Confederate government finds it appropriate that entry-level relations should be established with out newest neighbors post-haste in order to work through any differences in border concerns, trade issues, and military matters. Should the Union of Azadistan wish, we would like to get this started post haste.

The Union would respond back positively to such an idea, inviting Xerxes to Astana.
