Sinkiang is a medium sized communist Chinese Warlord Clique in Central Asia/Western China. It is bordered by the Flag of Soviet Union Soviet Union and Flag of Mongolia Mongolia to the north, the Flag of British Raj British Raj and Flag of Afghanistan Afghanistan to the south, and warlord clique Flag of Xibei San Ma Xibei San Ma to the east. Sinkiang is located in a barren, mountainous desert region with limited natural resources. It is also landlocked and has no navy. It is the only other communist nation in East Asia other than Flag of Communist China Communist China or Flag of Mongolia Mongolia.

Historical background[edit]

Sinkiang is a province located in the far western region of China, inhabited mostly by the Uyghur, a local Turkic Muslim ethnic group. After the Xinhai revolution, control of Sinkiang was seized by the warlord Yang Zengxin. His rule lasted until 1928, when he was assassinated following the victory of the Kuomitang in the Northern Expedition. The province then fell into a series of wars between multiple sides vying to control the province: Uyghur separatists under the East Turkestan Republic, and the warlords Ma Zhongying, who was aligned with the Flag of China Kuomitang and Flag of Xibei San Ma Ma Clique, and Sheng Shicai, who was supported by White Russian mercenaries and the Flag of Soviet Union Soviet Union. Sheng won control of the province in 1933, ruling Sinkiang for the next decade with heavy support from the Soviets. The Soviet Union maintained a military base in Xinjiang and had several military and economic advisors deployed in the region. Sheng Shicai would even join the Communist Party of the Soviet Union as a registered member. However, with the Sino-Japanese war raging, he would later turn on the Soviet Union and Flag of Communist China Communist China, executing Mao Zeodong's younger brother, Mao Zemin, and reestablishing relations with the Chinese Nationalist government. In 1944, fearing that Sheng Shicai would turn back to the Soviets, Chiang Kai-Shek removed Sheng from Sinkiang by giving him the ceremonial post of Minister of Agriculture and Forests, which moved him far away to the Chinese capital of Chongqing.

When the Chinese Civil War resumed in 1946, the Soviet-backed Second East Turkestan Republic was formed in Sinkiang and attempted to become independent of the Nationalist government, siding with the communists and peacefully integrating into the newly formed People's Republic of China. Sheng Shicai went into exile in Taiwan with the rest of the Kuomitang.

National focus[edit]

Main article: Warlords national focus tree

Flag of Sinkiang Sinkiang shares a national focus tree with Flag of Xibei San Ma Xibei San Ma, Flag of Guangxi Clique Guangxi Clique, Flag of Yunnan Yunnan and Flag of Shanxi Shanxi. It may inherit the Flag of china Nationalist or Flag of Communist China Communist Chinese focus trees.

Cooperation With the Communists sub-branch
This branch allows the Warlords to side with Flag of Communist China Communist China and be able to replace and annex them with Flag of Soviet Union Soviet Support. When replacing Flag of Communist China Communist China, The current focus tree will change into the Communist Chinese national focus tree and all Their national spirits will be yours.

The chaos of the civil war has disrupted the creation of an effective state apparatus. More than a third of available troops are not drafted, simply because no one knows they exist. Reforming the examination process will ensure that we hire competent people.


Diplomacy[edit]

As a warlord, Sinkiang may decide to ally itself with the Nationalists in order to fend off the Japanese. Because it starts off as a communismCommunist nation, It may join the Comintern and replace Flag of Communist China Communist China. It may also expand within the region via the use of border conflicts. Because it can only use border conflicts with Flag of Xibei San Ma Xibei San Ma in the start of the game, It must expand through there first.
