During its imperial years, Muscovy was best considered an aggressive nation. With its Czars frequently demanding war and harsh actions in the P.A.B. council meetings, power and control were always top priority. Propaganda against enemies from within and without the nation have also caused widespread polarization of the populace's opinions. It is still the most totalitarian of the P.A.B.
The government enforced pressure was excessive, resulting in a massive multi-lateral civil war in 2170(1417) and the Pan Asian Forces were forced to perform 'police actions' for the good of the Bloc as was done to the Djagatai Khanate. Inhibiting the PAB's ability to fix the nation before things got out of control, hints to the possibility of P.A.F. action met either aloof oblivious attitudes or angry retorts and threats of leaving the P.A.B from the Muscovite delegates. Muscovy knew it hadn't a chance either economically or militarily to counter Rome and the C.M. but the Sinicas did not want to force their hand as Muscovy provided a large percentage of crops and industrial products to the rest of the continental P.A.B. and also had most of the land-based nuclear missiles to target Italy and western Europe, this hesitancy resulted in the PAF being unprepared to act soon enough. The PAF would never make that mistake again!
The PAF relinquished control to a new government in 2175(1422), a government more representative of the people it ruled over and more agreeable with the other members of the PAB. The 40 constituent states of the Union had a much higher degree of autonomy as well. Rossja's capital was moved from Moskva to Alexandrogrod to help dislodged the totalitarian groove that had worn itself psychologically into the city.
The annexed Novgorod regions were given a conditional independence in 2175(1422) provided they unquestionably remained part of the Pan Asian Bloc. Until their end they would be less dependent on Muscovite crops than in the past with the recent longer summers making agriculture more successful for them.
With the ending of the Muscovite monarchy, Rome and Srivijava were now the last ancient powers left in the world, although innumerable reforms and advances had made them nothing like their beginnings. It somewhat strengthened the popularity of the fearful proverb quoted by Britannia philosopher Geotus Chauminius Merula in 1603(850): Omnes bona concedet All good things (must) end.
