The Grand Russian Project

Russia was always known, in all of its forms, as the disorderly, reckless motherland. Always five steps behind, struggling at every turn, and with a populace the world enjoyed watching screw up on dashcams and the plenitude of stereotypes and memes, Russia never truly was the forefront of much beyond revolutions, and even then the French still steals the spotlight of switching between the same two systems of governance each time. [This is a joke France player, please don’t kill me.]

As such, it was the new Soviet Government’s job to try and bring Russia to be equal with the rest of Europe. The nation was ruled by Vladimir Putin and his Oligarchs well before the second Russian revolution and never managed to do so, so what good was bringing him back with all the Oligarchs as his underlings going to do? NUSSR has relatively good funding. It is industrialized. It is relatively resource rich. It is populous. So why couldn’t it keep up? Infrastructure. Like all states, infrastructure is the key role, and the state lacked any good infrastructure. But today that would change. As the new government hoped to do, the first bill would finally be passed.

The Grand Russian Infrastructure Development Act

Calling first for the creation of new unelectrified railroads along the Northern coast from Veliky Novgorod, Novgorod Oblast to the city of Arkhangelsk, Arkhangelsk Oblast across to the city of Vorkuta, Komi Republic. It also called for the continuation of the railroad through to the cities of Arsarka, Tazovsky, and terminating all the way at Anadyr, however all of these cities would require building through the rebellious states of the East.

Secondly it calls for an update to the current Trans-Siberian railroad, replacing much of the failing track and refitting the trains to be cleaner and run better.

Thirdly it calls for the construction of several new highways connecting the Northern Cities with each other and their larger counterparts towards the center of the country. With newly paved roads capable of withstanding the harsh winters and larger size to accommodate better traffic, the roads would hopefully become safer to drive in the winter. There were suggestions of using solar-powered heaters for the roads to keep the snow and ice cleared away, however that suggestion was thrown out due to the melted snow and ice could just refreeze elsewhere and create larger ice puddles.
