The modern state of Georgia was established under the terms of the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk, and during the ensuing chaos of the Russian Civil War she emerged as a Menshevik stronghold, firmly establishing a potentially grave threat to White Forces in the Caucasus and Don-Kuban region who were only just beginning to regroup. However, the Georgian leadership quickly declared their new country's neutrality in the Civil War, and unwilling to risk a potentially disastrous conflict in the mountains of the Caucasus, especially when the Bolsheviks still held the Russian heartland, Kerensky and the Generals were content to leave the small state alone for the time being. A Popular Front of native Mensheviks, small groups of Bolsheviks, and Social Revolutionaries quickly emerged, and went to work building a new form of 'Caucasian Socialism' under a representative parliamentary system.
Since the revolution, the state has been characterized by strong state power, regulation, and intervention, and although this has given the country a surprisingly strong industrial base, not all is well in Menshevik Georgia. Indeed, the industrialization process subverted the country's constitution by creating a massive and unaccountable bureaucratic administration and putting it in charge of the country, and with each day the regime of this vast organization becomes more and more bound to the police and 'internal security service'. Georgia's democratic constitution has now become irrelevant, and all real power is now concentrated in the hands of the Supreme Economic Council, which is in turn increasingly controlled by the Chairmanship of Lavrentiy Beria - a man who is eager to integrate more regions into the Caucasian Socialist State.
Georgia is a socialist republic controlled by the Menshevik Party of Georgia.
