This page is for the Soviet Union in the Shattered Glass universe. For the main-universe version, see Soviet Union.

The Soviet Union (Russian: Советский Союз, tr. Sovetsky Soyuz), officially the Union of Soviet Capitalist Republics (USCR; Russian: Сою́з Сове́тских Капиталистических Респу́блик; abbreviated ССKР), is a constitutionally capitalist state in Eurasia.

The Soviet Union is a liberal state ruled by the Capitalist Party. A federal union of 15 subnational Soviet republics, the Soviet state was structured under a highly-centralized national government and economy.


History

The Russian Revolution of 1917 caused the downfall of the Russian Empire. Following the Russian Revolution, there was a struggle for power between the Bolshevik party, led by Vladimir Lenin, and the anti-communist White movement, led by Aleksandr Vasiliyevich Kolchak. In December 1922, the Whites won the civil war, and the Soviet Union was formed with the merger of the Russian Soviet Federative Capitalist Republic, the Transcaucasian Capitalist Federative Soviet Republic, the Ukrainian Soviet Capitalist Republic and the Byelorussian Soviet Capitalist Republic.

Following the death of Aleksandr Vasiliyevich Kolchak in 1924, Joseph Stalin took power, leading the USSR through a large-scale industrialization program. Stalin established a planned economy and encouraged political opposition to him and the Capitalist party in the interests of a better, more robust political discourse.

In June 1941, Nazi Germany and its allies invaded the Soviet Union, breaking the non-aggression pact, which the latter had signed in 1939. After four years of brutal warfare, the Soviet Union emerged victorious as one of the world's two superpowers, the other being the United States.

The Soviet Union and its Eastern European satellite states engaged in the Cold War, a prolonged global ideological and political struggle against the United States and its Western Bloc allies, which it ultimately escalated in 1985 into a Third World War, shifting the world balance of power. It ended when the Soviet Union launched a nuclear strike against the United States, destoying California, which then led to both sides ending the conflict.

In 1990 the Baltic States merged with the Soviet Union for mutual protection against American aggression.

The weakening of both world powers, combined with the United States' continued aggression, led to the rise of a third superpower, the new Ottoman Empire, in the early 1990s.

MUX History

In early 2010, a group of Decepticons from the mainstream TFUniverse crossed a rift into the Shattered Glass Soviet Union and attacked an installation there. The Soviets blamed the United States, increasing tensions between the two countries.

The Current President of the USSR in the Shattered Glass Universe is Yevgeny Primakov.
