Originally the Beijing People's Commissariat, the People's Commissariat is a sovereign military state and self-proclaimed meritocracy located in former Northern and Northeastern China. Built on the ideology of merit in the form of service to the state and community at large, the Commissariat sees itself as the legitimate successor to the People's Republic of China, having been formed out of a military takeover of government operations following the Great Calamity. It proclaims itself to be a post-Communist meritocracy, founded on the ideals of service and loyalty.

Today the People's Commissariat is one of the most populous nations on Earth, surpassed only by the Republic of China to its south and the Vijayanagar Empire. Locked in fierce but peaceful competition with the Republic of China, the citizens of the Commissariat dream of one day reuniting China, and perhaps uniting the world, under the leadership of the People's Sovereign Military (PSM). It is currently engaged in fierce armed conflict with nations to its North and West, with many fearing it may one day turn its attention to the democratic South and to Goguryeo and Japan in the East.


Unitary Structure

The People's Commissariat is an autocratic unitary state, divided into numerous administrative subdivisions organised along 4 levels below the central government. These are, in order of precedence, the regional, prefectural, county, and municipal levels. While sovereignty de jure rests with the people of the Commissariat, de facto power and authority emanates from the central government. While democracy is minimally present at the regional and municipal levels, the central, prefectural and county governments lack any democratically elected representation whatsoever.

  • People's Navy: The 130,000 personnel of the People's Navy is the Commissariat's primary naval warfare force.

The Navy operates just over 100 ships of various classes including 15 destroyers.
