Sector III, also known as the People's Republic of Asia or Central Asia Zone (Chinese: 人民共和国中亚) is a world political zone that consists of the several Central Asian nations. It is a socialist dictatorship that implements harsh restraints on both it's populace and the select few companies that are permitted to exist on its soil.
Unification of Asia
The People's Republic of Asia was formed as a direct response to the food crisis caused by the Yellowstone Eruption. An economic union, known as the Central Asian Economic Community (CAEC), was forged between the signatory states of China, North Korea, Mongolia, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam in order to encourage the consolidation of important resources. After the formation of the CAEC, the People's Republic of China attempted to instigate a militarily backed revolution to overthrow the Taiwanese government that failed due to the intervention of American forces based in the area that had not been recalled home in light of the Yellowstone Eruption.
With agriculture deemed a top priority, the CAEC revolutionised food producing technology and pushed their workforce into overdrive in a bid to overcome the limitations brought upon by a volcanic winter. Rationing was introduced throughout all member states and excess produce was exported at extremely high prices. The success of the Chinese scheme as well as the the security benefits provided by the union lead to the Mongolian government cementing a military alliance with the Chinese government as the threat of Russian aggression from the north intensified.
With the United States of America unable to exert it's power upon the rest of the globe in the aftermath of Yellowstone and their nuclear arsenal compromised, the Chinese elected to back a North Korean invasion of the Republic of Korea. This act of aggression saw military intervention being sent from American and Japanese forces stationed in the area. The concerted efforts of the defenders halted the advance of the communists and drove them back from Seoul. The failed unification of the peninsula allowed the Chinese to exert even greater influence upon the Democratic People's Republic of Korea as they refused to withdraw their soldiers from Korean lands as they began stationing troops along the Demilitarized Zone. At the Treaty of Pyongyang, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea elected to join the newly established People's Republic of Asia.
Following the failed annexation of the Korean peninsula, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam left the newly formed People's Republic of Asia in order to avoid falling victim to what they labled "Chinese Imperialism". The Mongolian government protested the actions undertaken by their Chinese allies and threatened to leave the union, but ultimately elected to remain within the new supranational state out of fears of falling prey to Russian Imperialism.
However, due to the economic ties established while they were members of the CAEC, the Chinese government maintained a steady influence upon the states that left the People's Republic of Asia, with the Vietnamese government eventually agreeing to rejoin it a decade later.
World Justic Uprising
Emergence of the Restored White Armies
Mainland Central Asia is largely agricultural and focused on mining deposits.
The mainland parts of Sector III vary between urban sprawls and vast expanses of open mines. Some areas are given over to agricultural land, but it typically comprises a scarred landscape that illustrates the technological advancements made by Sector III over the last 100 years.
Over the course of the last century, the People's Republic of China have done all within their power to extend their sphere of influence over Central Asia through questionable political moves, incitement of communist revolutions in neighboring states and uneven military alliances.
Still retains the level autonomy they have been granted since the land was repatriated to the Chinese from British administration.
Macau remains a semi-autonomous region of the People's Republic of China with a small degree of self rule. century.
Currently the most militarised part of the People's Republic of Asia, the Chinese have maintained a significant military presence upon Korean soil for close on five decades. Due to the extremely high numbers of military personnel based in the country, the region remained stable during the Third World War as the PER uprising was unable to gain a foothold upon the heavily defended Korean Peninsula. Korean infrastructure remains largely unchanged beyond transport links built by the Chinese to allow direct access to the official border with the Commonwealth of Asia.
With Peninsular Malaysia annexed heavily by Chinese forces, Malaysia was forced to surrender to the military might of Sector III. The nation has effectively been divided into two regions, with the west becoming heavily fortified and established as a major military strongpoint within southeast asia. Whilst western Malaysia operates more or less as a puppet state to the Sector, the much lesser populated regions of Sabah and Sarawak in the east have managed to maintain their special degrees of autonomy. Recent events involving the foundation of the Restored White Armies funded Eastern Alliance have accountably put this autonomy in extreme risk of being waived.
Mongolia voluntarily entered into a military alliance with the People's Republic of China when Russia seemed poised to invade. After merely two decades of political influence, the nation slipped into what was suspected to have been a Chinese sponsored revolution that placed a Communist government in control of the nation. Soon after, the government agreed to join the Socialist Worker's Party in order to solidify their solidarity with the Chinese.
Vietnam joined a military alliance with the People's Republic of China out of fears of expansionist land grabs being made from the north and being forced into another civil war as a result of foreign pressure. Their government officially joined with the SWP soon after the alliance was signed.
Seemingly isolated from the block state politics, the State of Japan remained as a free unaffiliated nation for close on a century until the outbreak of the Japanese Civil War in 2110. Following a vast armed uprising that had all the hallmarks of a revolution, the Quadruple Concordat elected to intervene in the affairs of the island nation and began a joint military campaign to elminate the Restored White Armies in a bid to restore order. As a result of this substantial peacekeeping effort, the People's Republic of Asia have come into the temporary possession of several Japanese regions that have been liberated from RWA rule.
Whilst fielding the most highly advanced military within all of south-east Asia, Singapore took a diplomatic approach and eventually joined the sector after a decade of political instability and public hysteria born from the constant Chinese military presence within Malaysia. Still maintaining a strong economy through high tech exports, Singapore has become a valuable asset to the Sector. Despite being heavily integrated within Sector III's infrastructure, Singapore retains strong independence; so long as the nation adheres to the high tariffs placed on its exports. Post integration, its relationship with the Republic of Australia has become increasingly restless, with public referendums even being carried out advising Singapore to dismantle all military bases on Australian soil.
Area disputed, with heavy fighting occurring between Cambodian nationalists and the quickly increasing Communist Party of Cambodia. Officially, the vast majority of the fighting force is purely comprised of willing Cambodians, but extensive Chinese military activity observed both by intercepted radio signals and satellite images has proved this to be highly incorrect.
Whilst not officially established, the nation of Indonesia has attracted some attention from the expansionist Sector III. Its fervent anti-communist stance has generally prevented any peaceful relations to be developed with it and the Sector III Central Asia Zone, whilst the nation's large population and an improperly managed and privatised economy ruling invasion out as risky and non-profitable in the short term. In spite of this, the nation is continually rife with provincial separatism, spurring political and militaristic instability, and this encourages the possibility of Chinese funded revolutions to be discretely put into action.
Much like its neighbours to the south, Laos has been overtaken by a chinese-funded revolution. The nationalists of Laos currently exist only in small pockets, fighting a losing war they perhaps foolishly took part in.
The nation's twenty-ninth coup d'etat has put a Chinese sponsored communist government in charge of the country in light of the threat posed by the RWA.
There is only one party that keeps a tight leash on all companies permitted to exist within the Central Asia Zone, Socialist Workers' Party (SWP). It is known that all decisions made by the government are focused on long term goals, with short term problems largely ignored.
Each member of the Socialist Workers' Party has undergone a minimum of 3 years military training, for it is one of the requirements to become a party member. They are all considered reserve soldiers that can be called upon during times of war on Chinese soil. All members of the People's Republic have the choice of a enlisting in the armed forces from the age of 16, should they wish to become party members.
As well as the semi-professional militia formed by party members, the Central Asia Zone keeps a highly efficient and zealously trained fighting force know as the People's Defence Corps (PDC) who on average have completed 5 years of military training and have seen 1.5 years of combat in active warfare.
The People's Republic of Asia has been subjected to unprovoked attacks conducted by the Restored White Armies. The People's Republic of Asia has committed a significant military effort in response to the threat posed by the RWA presence in Japan and Malaysia
The Sector is ruled by the Sovereign People's Government of Asia, which is comprised of a singular party. This party, the SWP is the sole political organisation allowed under the laws of the Central Asia Zone and is comprised of more than 60% of the populace of the area. It is also widely know that while the sector has adopted a far less nationalistic name, it is almost an exclusively Chinese run administration.
Since the emergence of insurgent forces lead by RWA terrorists, several Japanese territories have been occupied by Chinese forces dedicated to the Japanese Civil War Relief Effort. In practice, these regions have become puppet states ruled under martial law and they are considered to be independent of the Japanese Government.
The economy of the zone is in a perpetual state of stability due to tight governmental controls over it. Only companies that are deemed to be stable and that are willing to serve the interests of the People's Government of Asia are permitted to operate within the sector.
Calypso Industries is notable in the fact that they once held down a significant stake within Sector III before their company was wracked by instability in 2118. After that event the People's Government of Asia seized all Calypso Industries assets within the Central Asia Zone. In order to keep employment at 100%, the government formed Ren-De Corporation to utilise these gained assets for the betterment of Socialist Worker's Party.
No information exists on the state of other companies that operate within the Sector, but it has been assumed that only home-grown, fully state-controlled companies are allowed to exist, as of 2121.
The Chinese Government has implemented numerous laws to help both protect and monitor practitioners of elemental abilities in Asian society. With a rhetoric of tolerance and understanding, the populace are generally accepting towards these individuals although isolated incidents of prejudice have been known to occur in spite of the harsh anti-discrimination laws while unregulated use of elemental powers is punishable by severe sentencing in the courts.
Within most major Chinese cities, state sponsored training academies exist to harness the potential of citizens that have been blessed with these unnatural talents. While it provides a place of specialised education, tailored towards helping children born with elemental abilities, many foreign observers have criticised the heavy emphasis on martial discipline and physical training, often making wild claims that these institutions are little more than glorified military schools.
The official language of Sector III is Standard Chinese (Mandarin). Cantonese is also officially recognized as a language of the political zone. English is formally recognised as the secondary language of the Central Asia Zone due to its nature as the lingua franca in several important fields and is forcibly taught to all students throughout the sector. Despite attempts at linguistic and cultural suppression, many other tongues still survive as tertiary languages. This includes Japanese that has been retained as the official language of its homeland as the recent Chinese occupation is largely considered to be temporary. Korean, Vietnamese, Indonesian and Thai still exist to some degree within their respective regions, along with countless other native dialects.
