Abkhazia, officially the Republic of Abkhazia, is a country in the Caucasus Region of Eurasia. It was formerly an unrecognized state in Georgia, but following the nuclear destruction of Tbilisi and the death of the entire central Georgian government, Abkhazia was granted independence, along with South Ossetia, Georgia's other unrecognized state.

History

Pre-Y2K

Abkhazia had long been a contested region in Georgia, and only in October of 1999 did they declare their independence. However, not a single international entity recognized them at the time.

Doomsday

No city inside Abkhazia was hit by a nuclear weapon, but after the Georgian capital, Tbilisi, was nuked; news of it reached the Abkhazian government quickly. The Georgian government had been completely wiped out, and Abkhazia was granted de facto independence.

Post-Doomsday

The First Weeks

Almost right after the Abkhaz independence was declared and a stable government formed, the threat of the Tbilissi fallout became a very real thing. Old Soviet fallout shelters became crowded as the people of Abkhazia prayed that the noxious gas never reached them. As if by some miracle, a sudden push of wind guided two thirds of the fallout away from Southern Abkhazia, only affecting a small part of the country.

In the early morning on June 3 2000, Abkhazia made contact with South Ossetia, a newly fully independent Georgian breakaway nation. With coordinates given by South Ossetian President Lyudvig Chibirov, Abkhazia managed to make contact with South Azerbaijan, a new nation in former Azerbaijan Province in Iran, Armenia, and the Russian Federation, which was very close to collapse.

The Push for Communism

On November 17 2003, 75 Abkhaz Communist Party members marched on the capital, demanding the resignation of President Vladislav Ardzinba, the installation of Communist Party member Sergey Ozgan, and the transition from a Republic to a People's Republic.

After the third day of continuous protest, the Sukhumi Police Department opened fire on the protestors, and banned the Communist Party from participating in elections.

Alliance with South Ossetia

In early 2004, Abkhazia decided to ally with South Ossetia in order to protect against the other breakaway Russian Caucasus states of Chechnya and Dagestan, who had extremely bad relations with them. This alliance is still ongoing, and has prevented many seemingly inevitable attacks.

The Azerbaijani Invasion

After seven years of continuous military assistance to South Ossetia, Azerbaijan had had enough. They wanted to not only annex former Georgia, but Abkhazia as well. After receiving arms from Chechnya and Dagestan, Azerbaijan moved in through the lawless region of former Georgia, and attacked the Abkhazian City of Gali. After occupying the administrative divisions of Tquarchal and Ochamchira, South Ossetia resorted to the unthinkable.

With a quick negotiation with Manchukuo, South Ossetia was given two nuclear missiles to use against Azerbaijan. The first nuclear missile targeted the anarchy-ridden city of Kutaisi, where Azerbaijani troops were moving to get to Abkhazia. Even after the sudden massive loss of troops, The Azerbaijani government still kept on with their mission to annex Abkhazia. The second nuclear missile targeted Sumqayit, a large Azerbaijani city.

After seeing the horrors of the weapon on their own citizens, Azerbaijan decided to withdraw from Abkhazia and former Georgia, and end the invasion. Currently, Azerbaijani-Abkhazian and Azerbaijani-South Ossetian relations are hostile.

Government

Abkhazia is a stable de facto single-party presidential republic. There used to be more than five political parties, but all but the United Abkhazia party were dissolved following the Communist Party March on Sukhumi in 2003.

The Abkhazian constitution allows for 2 five-year terms for the President, but rarely do they ever serve more than one.

Legislative powers are held within the Abkhazian People's Assembly.

Religion

Most inhabitants of Abkhazia are Christian, but as a result of the Y2K Cascade, many are turning to atheism, citing that no god could have ever let this happen.

Military

Army

As of January 2012, Abkhazia has 329 Army members. This low number is attributed to a large number of Army defections to South Ossetia, which is slowly overtaking Abkhazia as a regional power.

Air Force

Abkhazia has no standing air force, but is expected to purchase one F18 from South Ossetia is the near future.

Navy

Abkhazia has no standing Navy.

Media

Abkhazia has one radio channel, which is solely devoted to English-language National News for foreigners. It is called ANN, or Abkhazian News Network. It currently runs on 1389 AM.

Foreign Relations

Abkhazia has cordial relations with South Ossetia and the newly formed East Prussia. With the other caucasus states of Chechnya, Bagestan, and Azerbaijan, it however, enjoys hostile relations that have not improved since the failed 2010 Azerbaijani invasion.
