Alash Orda occupies the lands of the former Steppe General Governorship of the Tsarist Empire. During the chaos of the civil war, a party of Kazakh nationalists successfully pushed for national independence, albeit granting considerable concessions and leeway to large numbers of ethnic Russian settlers in the region, and granting considerable autonomy to the Cossack garrisons. During the 1920s and early 1930s the country managed to improve it’s industrial base and to start creating it’s own army. Despite this, the position of the Orda is precarious. The Union of Turkestan to the South seeks to create a single Islamic Caliphate across the whole of Central Asia, and therefore poses an immediate threat. Additionally, while Russia has remained in a state of perpetual crisis for almost two decades, any Russian resurgence could be fatal - particularly if a new Russian government plays on the divided loyalties inherent within the Orda's ethnic groups.
Alash Orda has a right-wing government.
