Avakchia (Polish: Awaksza; pronounced [avakʂa]), officially the Republic of Avakchia (Polish: Rzeczpospolita Awaksza; pronounced [ʐɛt͡ʂpɔˈspɔʎit̪a avakʂa], is a country in Eastern Europe, bordering Nazi-occupied Poland to the south and Nazi-occupied Lithuania to the north. With a population of about 2.4 million, it is considered a small country. A majority of the country is rural. Bordering two Nazi-occupied countries, the Republic is under frequent attacks from the Axis. It is also under attack from the Soviet Union: Kaliningrad was taken back in 1946, thus increasing the country's size and increasing tension with the Russians.
The source of the name Avakchia is unknown. Many speculate it is derived from a Polish word (notably the word for vacation: wakacje), however, there is no evidence. Another speculation is that it is derived from a place or location.
Creation of the First RepublicEdit
The First Republic was created on the 6th of Jule, 1913, a year before WW1. Avakchia only controlled what is now Kaliningrad, as the uprising came from the north.
The revolution was supported by the Russians with military resources being supplied directly to the battlefield. The Germans had lost the land, but had a stalemate when taking what is now Warmia-Masuria. The First Republic was declared, and there was peace.
World War 1Edit
In World War 1, the Avakchians had tried to preserve peace, until 1917, when the Russians had also revolted. With the Russian presence and protection removed from Avakchia, the Germans had started to attack, but battles were miniscule, as Germany was focusing elsewhere.
The Avakchians had started to gain land in Eastern Germany (now Poland), and claimed it. In 1918, World War 1 had stopped, and Avakchia remained in peace, with little to none happening. The First Republic was now a stable state.
Fall of the RepublicEdit
In 1922, Soviet Russia joined with other republics to create the Soviet Union (USSR). In late 1923, Avakchia faced political pressure from Russia, and ultimately ceceded into the union, as threats were seemingly increasing. This marked the end of the First Republic.
Rise of LecowskiEdit
Around 1932, a man named Cyryl Lecowski had joined the Nowa Nadzieja Club (New Hope Club). This secret club supported the abolishment of Soviet rule in Avakchia, and the creation of a second republic. In 1933, an unsuccessful rebellion was set in Ozjorsk, capital of Avakchia.
All who took part were arrested, although a few had escaped to Dobrek. Lecowski then lived in fear of capture, but still took part in planning a second rebellion, led by Drazko Walskowicz.
Later in Dobrek, March 1934, the second rebellion, planned by Drazko and Lecowski, was succesful in overthrowing the Soviet presence in Dobrek. This was done through a series of decisive battles, notably the Battle of the Domludzi, a governmental building which had controlled the Warminskan voivodship of Avakchia.
The newly established - and unofficial - country of Warminska had spawned an increasing number of nationalist and anti-Soviet thoughts in the rest of Avakchia, causing an unstable and unsteady feeling of waiting towards the almost unavoidable rebellion of the whole of Avakchia.
Establishment of the Second RepublicEdit
On the 2nd of March, 1934, the state of Avakchia officially became independent.
