White Ruthenia, also known as Weissruthenien, is a country in Eastern Europe. It borders the United Baltic Duchy to the north, Russia to the east, Ukraine to the southeast, Galicia-Lodomiera (part of Austria-Hungary) to the south, Poland to the southwest and Lithuania to the west.

History

The lack of an historic Byelorussian state did not prevent the Germans establishing the Kingdom of 'White Ruthenia' along ethnographic lines following the successful conclusion of the Weltkrieg and the collapse of Russian power. Despite the lack of an historic identity the legitimacy of the new state was secured during the reign of Kaiser Wilhelm II’s brother Heinrich, who used the strong constitutional Royal prerogatives to promote land reform, education programs, and balance the interests of the various factions within his Kingdom.

Unfortunately upon Heinrich’s death in 1929 the throne passed to his son Waldemar, who has not been able to live up to the standards set by his father. In 1936 Weissruthenien is an increasingly divided society and the young kingdom appears to be approaching a crisis as power slips away from the legitimate monarch to his younger brother Sigismund, who has managed built up a formidable power base through the ‘National Security Services’ and various Byelorussian extremist groups unhappy with the current situation.
