""Comrades, the world lays in ruins. And the three powers found guilty of that is Capitalism, the Class-Bound Society and Xenophobia! But not all is broken and lost, from the east comes a red storm that will cleanse the world from the old and faulty thinking! They might have crawled out from a forgotten crater or reappeared in the thoughts of the feeble-minded, it does not matter. We will crush these antiquated ideas and make sure that they never arise again! But don’t forget the People, the ones we are fighting for. We suffer, so they don’t have to suffer later. We sacrifice ourselves so they can live in peace. We fight, so fighting will be a long forgotten thing for the future generations! Forward, my Krasny Narodny Front! To victory!'"
- Part of the first speech held in Vladimirograd after the opening of the bunker
The Red Peoples Front resides in the remnants of former Russia. It's a very diverse gathering of people, all gathered under the red flag of Socialism.
Rise and fall of Vladimirograd
70 years after the bunker was sealed the doors once again opened and out marched Krasny Narodny Front (the Red Peoples Front) to retake the surface and save the world in the name of socialism. They chose the city St Petersburg as their capital and base of operations and after rebuilding the city centre they renamed it Vladimirograd. Since then they have slowly spread over the former European area, receiving mostly praise due to their nature of helping the people, be it from mutated animals highwaymen or the poisonous thoughts of capitalism. A few years ago the Front crossed the treacherous waters between Rodina and Scandinavia and founded a colony of sorts among the ruins of the city once known as Norrtälje, named Sestra-Strana. However, the actions of the Red Peoples Front gathered the interest of groups hostile to the thought of socialism and after a clash in Stråssa an old weapon in orbit around Earth was activated and aimed towards Vladimirograd. The destruction was more or less total, with a crater of irradiated glass now sitting where the proud city once stood.
Regroup, survive, rebuild
When the smoke cleared and the extent of the destruction stood clear, many people thought that the last page in the story of the Red People's Front was written. But in the middle of all the darkness a spark was ignited in the hearts of the remaining people, awakening a need for justice. The survivors gathered the meager resources they could find and left. It was time to find a sanctuary and after some discussion they found a place at the Steel State. Refugees started to arrive in greater and greater numbers, the air filled with the buzzing of radiowaves and when one of the last surviving radio bunkers sent a message about regrouping the small trickle of refugees grew to a mighty stream. This however caused irritation among the Steel State, both living space and supplies started to grow thin and there was some concerned voices about the difference in ideologies. In the middle of this small chaos a unmarked group arrived and demanded a meeting with the remaining officers of the Front. What was said is unknown but after the meeting a man and a woman stood up and took charge over the Front. It was time to start the rebuild of the nation. Once again it was time to gather up the belongings and move but this time it was different, this time people had a raging fire in their hearts. The Front survives, The Front can't be held down. The march began eastwards with a clear target in sight. Moscow.
Moscow, dreams and reality
In 2148, a heinous defilement of the dead comrades of Vladimirograd was discovered by the Red People's Front. The White Guards known as Svarta Svärden (the bane of Russians in Karelia) had planted a Finnish flag in the former capital's glass crater. Cherepovets dispatched Folkkommissarie Igor Levchenko with all haste to Sestra-Strana, from which he reached comrade Captain Vadim's fort in Stråssa. Honours were distributed to Vadim's soldiers for their many noteworthy achievements, and Captain Vadim then led the revenge hunt on the Finns with lightning speed, mowing them down on Dukhi Avenue and placing their bleeding bodies in the forest.
The Red People's Front wages large offensive wars against its enemies, notably to the far east, and in the south.
In the east: A jagged line of craters and trenches with the Red People's Front on one side and the Ash-Wolves on the other. Fierce battles are fought here and blood have soaked the soil for years.
In the south: A highly contested area, where soldiers of the Red Peoples Front clash with the Dieselcossacks on an almost daily basis. So far, the battlefront is locked in place, neither side moving many meters.
