People's Republic of Alaska is a Communist nation in northwest North America, it has Pacifica to the east and south and the Soviet Union (maritime) to the west.
Alaska declared Independence in July 26 1931, and reclaim the Yukon as theirs. In July 1937 Alaska's People's Revolutionary Party make a revolution and overthrow the government declaring People's Republic of Alaska on July 19.
Highly prized are the large deposits of crude oil discovered by the Russians in the early 1930s.
The Imperial Japanese are a growing presence in the southern areas of the region, wanting to establish a puppet state.
Alaska is sparsely settled and considerably more primitive than the bulk of the United States' remnants. Running water, electricity, radio and telephone communication is rare and where, present functions poorly.
The harsh terrain and relatively low population has made Alaska a useful staging area for pirate groups preying on Canadian and Russian territory and shipping.
Because of the small number of people living in the territory, Alaska has no central governing body; the various small settlements scattered throughout the territory have their own laws (much like frontier towns of America's Old West). In general, decisions are made by concerned citizens in grassroots town meetings.
Perhaps the largest, most civilized settlement is Anchorage. Anchorage's denizens are mostly subsistence Inuit fishermen, American prospectors and Canadian fur trappers. Anchorage's government, a loose representative democracy. As a result, most of the pirates, smugglers and thieves that populate the Alaskan wilderness treat Anchorage as neutral territory.
