Prior to the Great Nuclear War, Estonia was governed by the Estonian Soviet Socialist Republic, one of fifteen constituent republic of the Soviet Union.
Tallinn was hit in the Great Nuclear War, plunging the nation into chaos. However, in the city Tartu a Provisional Estonian Soviet Socialist Republic was formed, ready to answer to any surviving Soviet government. However, as the days passed, and it became obvious no surviving Soviet government would be making contact or sending help and time soon, a moderate sect of the surviving government seized control, and on the 4th November 1962 declared the new, democratic Republic of Estonia. Over the next few months the surviving government established stability around Tartu, rationed supplies and began rebuilding destroyed infrastucture. By 1964 the fledging nation was in a state to expand, and expanded further into Estonia, but also parts of former Russia and Latvia.
During the 1970's the nation continued to expand, and absorbed democratic city state - and invaded others. By the mid 70's contact had been maintaned with Latvia and to an extent Lithuania, and continued to expand also into Russia. Contact was also made with the Republic of Moonsund, based in the West Estonian Islands. Whilst the Republic wished to reunify, the Islands did not see joining as any better than their current state, and politely refused. As these democratic states stabilised, in 1982 the leaders of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Moonsund met in the Latvian capital, Jēkabpils. A general pooling of resources and trade was agreed, and a discussion on borders began: since the Great Nuclear War, the three states had all expanded into each others nominal territory, as well as Russia's, and agreed on new borders, similar to those of their previous SSRs, though all three were free to expand into former Russian territory on the condition it was to bring democracy and stability. Over the next few years several more meetings were made, and periodic contact was made with Belarus.
In the, the Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian leaders met again in the Lithuanian capital of Kaunas, and discussions turned to the establishment of an organisation to coordinate trade. Estonia made several proposals, and in 1992 the Baltic Union was formally created with four members, greatly and positively received. Indeed, over the next two years the Union proved extremely successful, and in 1994 Belarus, by this time greatly using Lithuania's sea access, made a formal application to join the Union, which was accepted.
As Estonia stabilised and coordination between member states increased, in 1995 Moonsund held a referendum and subsequently sent a formal request to the Estonian government for reunification. Bills were quickly drafted and passed, and in 1996 Moonsund rejoined Estonia as an autonomous region.
In 2005, the International League was formed by various nations as a solely democratic successor to the United Nations, and in 2007 the Baltic Union issued a joint application for membership, and acceded in 2008, with a single state (though individual states of the Union reserve the right to send their own representative without withdrawing from the Union).
Estonia is split into two Federal Regions (Estonia and Moonsund), which are divided into Countries
