Transamur (Russian: Заамурская Республика, Zaamurskaya Respublika, meaning Republic Beyond Amur) is a country in East Asia. It borders Russia to the north, Japan to the south and the Fengtien Republic to the west.
Transamur is officially a republic, but it is in practice a dictatorship. It is allied with Japan and the Fengtien Republic, and is a puppet of Japan. Transamur is ruled by admiral Alexander Kolchak. Because of Transamur's perception of being the successor to the Russian Empire in the Far East, it has claims on some Japanese islands and also claims to be the rightful owner of much of Yakutia, Magadan, and the Russian Far East.
Siberia and the Russian far-east had been major areas of conflict during the Russian Civil War, as the location of a short-lived democratic republic, the rising of the 'Czech legion' and Japanese intervention. While forced to evacuate their forces due to German pressure (as well as intense resistance from local Cossacks), the Japanese remained eager to extend their influence and in 1922 pushed for the establishment of an independent state in the Transamur region. This motion gained the support of the Vladivostok business community, despite the fact that it left them vulnerable to forming an economic dependency on Japan. The majority of the business community however saw economic and diplomatic relations with the rising power in the East as a significant advantage, especially when compared to the alternative of being sucked further into the disorder besetting the rest of Russia.
The new nation gained a prominent figurehead in the form of Admiral Kolchak, one of the more successful White Generals of the civil war and the one-time self-proclaimed 'Supreme Ruler of All Russia', who had been forced to flee Russia following his unsuccessful attempt to seize control in 1924. In 1936, the Transamur Republic has become a corporate and militaristic state, and is politically, economically and militarily under the thumb of the Japanese Empire.
