United Kingdom of Baltorus (Baltorusite: Baltruska kralstva) or formerly The Talinian State of Baltorus (Baltorusite: Talinski valisti Baltrussija) (2014-2017) is a state entity used by EthanConquistador and Trio Mapping multiple times that usually resides in the Baltics.
During the pre-coup, the Republic of Baltorus was at it's brightest future since free of the communist regime, the country had became a member of the Commonwealth of Independent States, unlike it's northern neighbour Talin which are heavily pro-European rather than Russian. It only had one president, Fiodor Vašijak who had three successful terms every election took place, in 1997, 2002 and finally 2007. However during that time, Brezowa had founded a terrorist organisation to overthrow the democratic republic and switch to a military dictatorship.
Brezowa planned a coup in a very precise way, making sure that all of Baltorus doesn’t go into waste from a coup and descend into a civil war. The terrorist organisation, the Baltorusite Military Group (BMG) aimed to crush any other possible dissidents in their ling-term goal throughout the mid-2000s. They did it quickly and also began persuading the military to benefit in the coup against Vašijak’s government, building up to the coup in 2007.
In the 21st century, Baltorus had descended into a crisis and dispute with its rival, Talin. The unlikely friends would eventually become friends after Talin had abolished the Talinian State of Baltorus but two ideologies cannot contrast its relationship, rather by sphere of influence.
The coup d'état and control by Lenny Brezówa (Latinised as Lenny Bright), a Prussian terrorist recognised by the UN since 2014 have took control of the country before then had changed Baltorus forever. He would later be deposed by Talin and fall into a series of conflicts on the Baltics and even intimidating Finland and Russia.
Baltorus under Brightian Rule (2007-2014)
The coup d'état happened in the post-communist republic of Baltorus, while recovering from an economical recession in the 2000s. Lenny Brezówa, a Prussian soldier have bribed men to support his organisation - Baltorusite Military Group - to overthrow the government and suppressed other dissidents that are a big concern to the republic. At night, the whole military of Baltorus had besieged and dragged the parliament of Baltorus out of the building and killed them without mercy. Brezówa in a propaganda video had said that they took over the country effectively which shocked the international community and also ordered many to revise the flag to strip the Baltorusite eagle off and form a military-led rule.
The rule of Brezówa continued to rule over seven years until August 2014, the Talinian government had blamed Brezówa of human right atrocities and doing systematic genocide on Prussians, keeping anti-government prisoners and journalists captive, executing them without mercy and even developing a ballistic missile system and chemicals to keep the United Nations at play. This casus belli led to intervention of Talin to liberate Baltorus. During the rule of Brezówa, he also claimed a nuclear program system, supported by former Soviet scientists is underway developed and claimed to have a stockpile of 50 nuclear weapons but never tested them out due to the war that had devastated much of the country in 2014.
Talino-Baltorusian War (2014)
Due to Talin's casus belli being about liberating on tyranny, Talin and other nations such as Vordalkien and Miracium attack Baltorus in a joint operation codenamed Operation Federer. The war however did not make success on both sides, leading to the destabilisation of Baltorus and further two years of uncertainty starting from July 2014, where militants and loyalists occupy much of Riga to stop a corrupt government and eventually Brezówa had retook control in August and began a "great conquest of all Baltic people" through rhetorical blame of the Talinian government, along with other nations that were involved. It involves genocide of the Talinians and replace with what they claim was pure Baltic people from Old Prussia, Lithuania and Letghellia.
Greater Baltorus (2014-2015)
The war eventually turn favour to Baltorus, the army of 500,000 conscripts that were raised throughout mid-late 2014 to organise a blitzkrieg tactic and smuggling from other NATO and Russian countries through the black market gave them technological advantage and claiming the title of Successor of Talin which Brezówa affiliates really wanted "in return". Talin is quickly steamrolled within two weeks in 16th September to 27th September 2014.
They also invaded Sweden and Finland for a short period of time before being repelled by NATO forces in early 2015 where they are being supported by them against an imperialist threat. However, the unrest began growing, yet thousands are hating the rule of Brezówa and rebel, turning in favour of Talin and Zapadrussia. The city of Riga by the end of middle 2015 is still de jure and de facto part of Baltorus but Letghellia, Lithuania and Old Prussia is granted independence - partially democratic in condition and it wasn’t until 2017 that a treaty was drawn up to unite Baltorus and these three states into one large state once again in an eventual negotiation between the Talinian State of Baltorus and other states that were broken off.
Talinian State of Baltorus (2015-2017)
The puppet state has huge degree of autonomy, they can still hold atrocities and Talin by 2016 has become socialist and repressive thanks to the 2016 Federal Elections winning the far right a majority of the seats. Both had began making new relationships and discussed unification of Baltorus once again with the nation, believing NATO and the United Nations couldn't trust the rogue nation of Baltorus due to Brezówa (despite him being declared dead). Letghellia rejoined Baltorus in November 2016, Lithuania and Old Prussia in January 2017 due to pressure of having a reunited Baltics but it wasn't until February that Talin renounces protection of Baltorus and instead form a dual alliance to fend the Baltics off from "invaders" - despite racial tensions being raised between locals and Talinians.
United Kingdom of Baltorus (2017-present)
The United Kingdom of Baltorus at its current form is at its anxiety since appointment of a pure Baltorusite with claimants being descendant of the ancient gods that Baltorusians were worshipped when they were following Romuva (an alternative version). The pure Baltorusite held a coronation at Riga and crowns himself as the monarch of Baltorus - thousands meet and follow this as a new era. later in February, the unstable government hosted an election to whom shall be the head of the government itself. Although being a one party government, they instead used the tool of election to get the international attention of Baltorus being a democracy, well-respected and not an authoritarian government.
The traditions that are held and secret government officials had however were no match for the United Nations' investigation on Baltorusian right records - unlike Talin which has some improvement over the last four years since its socialist rule in the late 1990s, Baltorus was still failing to meet standards. Executions as of 5th March, 2017 were counted as 19 according to the Talinian government, including one official who allegedly slouched while the election had being passing by. That however increased rapidly to hundreds by late 2017, causing international condemnation once again.
The relationships of Talin also began disintegrating in March - Gadeš argued it as the ruling Baltorusian Party is now aligned to become anti-Talinian since Talin withdrew its occupation on most of Baltorus and have the current government of Baltorus intending to demolish the position in the end of 2017. Many terror attacks were made inside the city of Riga, Kaunas and Königsberg claimed to have being committed by the Baltorusite Party's secret police forces to sow dissidents and push disapproval of the dual alliance by Talin and also having the civilians being under "one mind" by the government it quickly, which was brought into control at August 2017.
It was announced on 7th October, 2017 that Baltorus has conducted its first nuclear test despite its wavering anarchst movements still persistent throughout 2017. However this test would finally bring down the dissidents that were presistent from March to September 2017 and brought into "the one mind policy". This also led to further escalation with Talin under the administration of Gadeš and the current monarchy to expand into Estonia and fulfill its irredentist claim after three years since a war had happened under the rule of Brezówa and by 8th October, 2017 it was announced that Baltorus will dissolve the dual alliance having it to only last for just few months and beginning the second Baltorusite-Talinian Cold War.
As Gadeš once stated as of this date, "The legacy of Brezówa continues". This is evident by having nuclear reactors are being reopened to enrich further uranium and it is expected by the end of the decade, Baltorus may have gotten on their hands a long range missile and an experimental hydrogen bomb.
Currently it is a semi-constitutional monarchy but has no opposition due to the main party, the Baltorusian Imperial Party having much power, along with the Tzar, the head of state led by Leon III which has more power unlike other governments that have a head of state with no power such as the United Kingdom for example. The nation itself is often being named as the "Region of Turmoil", due to the corrupt ruling of Brezówa and a three year long insurgency between the ruler and Talin.
Foreign relations with other countries are usually not as bright, especially with Talin recently. During the Brezowa regime, many foreign relationships held by Baltorus disintegrated over the last nine years. However trade deals with Talin at the start of 2015 have begun lighting up their relationships with them, also having an economical relationship while it was a puppet state. Recently in 2017, corrupt Baltorusian government has made a decision to eliminate Talinian influence from Baltorus, also cutting off trade deals slowly after finding ways of laundering money.
Abroad of Talin, Baltorus still has trading relationships, even with international trading, Baltorus is still likely sanctioned apart from Talin which Baltorus has a free trading agreement in aid of rebuilding damages committed by Brezowa's regime. However local civilians are becoming more fond of the outside world but are repeatedly suppressed.
Baltorus is a nation with one of the most executed in Europe. While it used to execute pro-democratic people in the past, they were not all of them. Most Baltorusian executions take place publicly for those dissident and government officials as well. During the Brezowa regime, he prioritised execution of all those who tried to execute him, raising a number of 6,000 executed from the total of 7,000 since 1992 but in 2014, when the war against Talin had started, the execution methods have gone far from hard labour, gold farming and public execution to being forced to fight alongside with them, otherwise if they try to escape under the eyes of the Baltorusian government, a small tablet that contains a miniaturised bomb can implode and could count as an execution.
In 2014, the total of executions have peaked at its time with 8,000 executions - mostly Talinian. By 2015 and 2016, this number has slightly decreased and those only accused of crime such as assault and drug trafficking (without government discretion). Since the independence of Baltorus from being a puppet state of Talin, the execution numbers have raised once again to currently 5,290 people. In overall, Baltorus executes an estimated amount of 34,000 people (placeholder). Although it is considered to be a small number to some, Baltorus uses any methods to kill people that don't follow the government and in 2017, Baltorus has expanded executions to other countries intensively before.
The conflict excludes the war with Talin and earlier and only recent wars are shown.
Nordemian Conflict (December 2016-January 2017)
Baltorus withdrew the conflict in January due to Talin withdrawing forces and renouncing sphere of influence. The Nordemian Conflict only lasted for two months for Baltorus but they contributed the help to have Talin pushing forward into the Swedish front.

The economy of Baltorus has shifted over the last ten years and yet the effects of the Baltorusite economy being devastated are still persistent to this day. (WIP)
Science and Technology
In Baltorus, most of the Internet was blocked by the official government officials and instead runs an estimated 12,000 websites that are mainly operated in servers inside Baltorus. Despite for the usage of intranet, they rank #68 for digital usage as of 2017 thanks to the rise of fake news, prompting many Baltorusians to gain revenue from clickbaiting methods in most of Western, Russian and Chinese social media.
Baltorus also is current leading on being the worst offender of creating fake news since the year 2016 even ahead of Romania, with an average salary of a "fake journalist" being averaging $6,900 everyday from basic clickbaiting. The clickbaiting is mostly given to the government of Baltorus to keep the economy running and by 2017, it contributes 19.7% of its economy. There's a division of hackers set up by the government to defend the Great Firewall at any cost from preventing many civilians reaching mainstream media.
The government also threatened to use fake news made by their journalists onto other countries, such as its deteriorating neighbour Talin to sow dissidents.
