The Kazari People's Socialist Republic was founded by the erstwhile founder of Matbaa, then known as Maximos Qutreh Bar Idwharioun, on the 30th of March 2008 as a Marxist-Leninst single-party state. At the time there had been something of a renaissance in Communist Micronations, with Wachensburg, the USSC and Katyusha being other examples of Communism in Micronations in the first half of that year.

Since the fall of Baracão and later on, Novaya Zemlya, a long-lasting, established Communist Micronation had not been seen in the Micran Sector and the Kazari People's Socialist Republic was intended to be one of the nations which would fill this void. A short-lived micronation, its active life as a part of the Micran community was barely one month, partially due to its founder's creating Ashkenatza soon after.


The conception of the Kazari People's Socialist Republic by its founder was partially due to an interest in the obscure macronational Tuvan People's Republic, a Siberian nation with a Mongol-influenced culture which was a satellite of the Soviet Union. A Kazari micronation with a Mongol-Siberian influenced culture was proposed as a satellite state of the micronation of Treithar, by 2008 very near death.

Kazar itself always had a low level of activity, with President Maksim Makmaduular notifying the community of its existence on July 31st, submitting a claim for land in Central Apollonia on Micras that same day. Two citizens soon joined, taking the names Jurkhan Karasar and Altin Sükhbataar, and quickly starting to prepare a Constitution and Manifesto for the sole legal party in the Socialist Republic- the Kazari People's Revolutionary Party. It soon transpired that activity levels were too low to sustain the nation's formative development, and Karasar had already called a vote of no confidence in President Makmaduular by August 12th. Makmaduular returned, and started reaching out to Shireroth and the Communist nation of Katyusha for recognition. Debates among Kazari politicians with regards to Foreign Affairs were isolationist from the very start, declaring that only treaties of non-agression could be signed with 'Imperialists' and that military alliances could only be pursued with fellow Communist micronations.

First and only President of the Kazari PSR, Maksim Makmaduular

However reactions to the new state on the MCS' forum were generally hostile, with Antican dignitaries declaring in jest that the People's Republic should be liberated like no-one has ever been before. This was sadly to prove all too true, with an individual calling himself Baron von Shternberg (widely believed to be Ardashir Khan Osmani, then of Babkha) declaring 'The First Day of the Coming Salvation', to restore a Khan to the Kazari throne, to slaughter Kazari Chekists with a piecemeal force of Transcendent Nyingmapas (Kazari Buddhist Monks, banished by the Communist regime of Makmaduular) and Kazari horsemen who assaulted the capital, Arzhav, on August the 19th. Makmaduular purged 'reactionary elements' from the Kazari Government and sent armoured cars onto the streets of Arzhav to prepare city defences. Nothing more was heard from either side, and it is assumed that Shternberg's forces were victorious, wiping the People's Socialist Republic from the pages of micronational history.


The legislative body of the state was the Great Kuural, convened of all active citizens of the People's Socialist Republic. Citizens were obliged to join the Kazari People's Revolutionary Party upon joining the micronation, the only manifestation of democracy being elections for party chairman and thus, Head of State. Government Ministries included the Presidum of Foreign Affairs (host to COMICTERN, the Communist Micronational International), Presidum of Finance, and the People's Palace of Culture.

Military influence on Kazari Society is assumed to have been extensive. The IKS, (the Security Service and Political Police) openly hinted that they could be the 'friendly baker across the street or the baby in the pram'. The Kazari People's Insurrectionary Armed Forces, of which Altin Sükhbataar was Marshal, was hosted in the Damsoren Military Complex outside Arzhav. The army consisted of a modest three divisions, which are known to have included cavalry, light armour, AA, and motorised infantry components.


The very early stages of cultural development in the Kazari People's Republic showed a fairly obvious inspiration from Mongol culture. The main informal meeting place of citizens, for example, was known as Danzan's Yurt. Comrade Danzan was shown at the top of the forum, reporting on the latest developments with characteristic ideological fervour. A few phrases in a basic Turkic ConLang were also used widely on the ministry boards, though an orthography and grammar were never devised, and Makmaduular himself stated that 'Kazar is not a Mongolian micronation'; that Mongol culture was merely its chief influence.

Kazar was divided into three provinces- Uvs Tagh, where 80% of the population lived and where the capital, Arzhav, was located, Haquun (Capital: Salchak), a desolate steppe, and Jasatqo, a mountainous region 'rich in both raw minerals and socialist zeal' (Capital: Churmit-Dazh).

At the time of the nation's death, talks about a possible map of the capital were ongoing but nothing was produced as a result. However it was agreed that many street names would honour macronational Mongol and Tuvinian Communists, and that the centre of the city would be dominated by a large old Lamaist-Buddhist monastery which had since become a museum. This, coupled with the fact that many monks joined Shternberg in the attack on Arzhav, implies that the Socialist Republic was particularly zealous in implementing its Communist policy of state atheism.
