After the Klondike Gold Rush, the Russian government found potential in the distant colony. The population of the region had seen a population boom, with most of the gold seekers having moved to Kenai.
World War I
Independence and Civil War
As the revolution began rising in Russia, many Russians sought refugee in the colony of Alaska. As the influx of Russians came into the land, many felt that the dissolving government in Russia after the abdication of Tsar Nicholas had no further hold on Alaska, and many wanted their own government to control their own affairs. As a result, the Alaskan Republic was declared in February of 1918, the third independent state in the nation.
However, as a result of increased immigration and an influx of the lower classes, many felt that going the way of the Soviet Union was their best chance at recovering economically, and avoiding a class warfare. In May, mass revolts and the disbandment of the democratic federal government lead to a coup d'état and the establishment of the Communist Party. The Alaskan Socialist Republic was declared soon after. It was the first communist nation in the Americas thus far.
