MY NEWEST PROFILE PICTURE'S FULL CREDIT GOES TO THE INFINITELY-TALENTED ARTIST BY THE NAME OF NICHOLAS BEECHER (beecher-arts.tumblr.com/)

Premier of the New USSR, General Secretary of the New CPSU, and Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the New Soviet Armed Forces, Richard Karmenovich Latyeskov

Премьер Нового СССР, Генерал-Секретария Нового КПСС, и Верховный Главнокомандующий Нового Советских Вооруженный Силы, Ричард Карменович Латесков

This is the official DeviantArt of Richard Karmenovich Latyeskov, the leader of a fictional nation called the New Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. If you have any questions, please feel free to comment or send me a personal message. Also, I don't solely post works related to the New USSR, I also post works for AdmiralMichalis' Crown and Empire (primarily the Russian Dominion), Star Wars related flags and emblems, and once in a blue moon I would post comedic works.

Going into my personal life, I'm a gamer, I want to pursue a history teaching career, and I sometimes like to play airsoft, preferably during the fall and winter. And although I do like a few things about socialism, I'd like to see socialism happen through a democratic process, therefore I am a democratic socialist. My Xbox LIVE gamertag, PSN name, Steam name and Origin account are all RedRich1917, so feel free to add me there as well. Lastly, I am not of Russian descent, I am 100% full-blooded Italian-American (or as we Italians like to say "FBI" lol). My name I have displayed above is not my real middle and last name, and I will not disclose my actual name here due to a possible McCarthyist-style political shitstorm from Facebook, Twitter, etc.

Executive Branch: The Premier and the Council of Ministers of the New USSR

(Emblem of the Premier of the New USSR)

The executive branch of the government is held by the Premier , who would be equivalent to the old USSR's Premier, Genral Secretary, and Head of State, all combined into one role, or like the President of the USA but with more legislative and military authority. The Premier holds the power of veto and the power to enforce laws by any means, however it goes against the New USSR's Constitution if the Premier enforces policy through inhumane means, i.e. killing innocent civilians or wrongful imprisonment. The Premier also holds the power of Supreme Commander in Chief of the New USSR's Armed Forces. The amount of 10 year terms the Premier can hold is unlimited, unless the Supreme Soviet elects a new Premier, or if he is convicted of a serious crime, which he will be impeached for, and if convicted, thrown out of office.

The Council of Ministers consists of 13 different roles, each held by one person, appointed by the Premier upon his election:

  1. Minister of War and Defense
  2. Minister of Foreign Affairs
  3. Minister of Agriculture
  4. Minister of Trade and Industry
  5. Minister of Education
  6. Minister of Food Production
  7. Minister of Finance
  8. Minister of Justice
  9. Minister of Labor
  10. Minister of Social Welfare
  11. Minister of Communications
  12. Minister of State Security (Chairman of the KGB, nikolaikalashnikov since 2030)
  13. Minister of Extra-Terrestrial Exploration (Head of the Space Program)

Legislative Branch: The Supreme Soviet of the New USSR

The legislative branch of the government is still a bicameral legislature, however their two houses have had their names changed, and the houses have been switched from their upper and lower statuses. Although the Premier has legislative powers, the Supreme Soviet is the main governmental body that passes legislature for it to be later either approved, modified, or vetoed completely by the Premier.

The Soviet of the Union (now the Lower House) has been renamed the Soviet Duma, however the ratio of members is still the same, where every 300,000 people in the entire New USSR is represented by one Deputy.

The Soviet of Nationalities (now the Upper House) has been renamed the Soviet Senate, which still has each of the 15 Soviet Socialist Republics represented by 32 Deputies, 480 total. Autonomous SSR's still have 11 deputies each.

Judicial Branch: The Supreme Court of the New USSR

The Supreme Court of the New USSR's job is to interpret laws passed by both the Premier and the Supreme Soviet and make sure they fit the rules of the Communist Manifesto and of the Soviet Constitution. Each of the 15 Republics gets one Supreme Court Justice, who is appointed by the Premier and approved by the Soviet Senate.

The New Communist Party of the Soviet Union

(Flag of the New CPSU)

The New CPSU is the ruling political party of the New USSR, though other parties exist within its government and hold very small minorities within the Soviet Senate and Soviet Duma. Currently, the General Secretary of the New CPSU is Rik Latyeskov, who is also the Premier of the New USSR's Government, and the Supreme Commander in Chief of the New Soviet Armed Forces. The Party's anthem, like its predecessor, is the Internationale, though only the first verse, since Latyeskov saw the rest of the lyrics to be either outdated or against the Party's more lenient and secular doctrines. Due to Latyeskov's leadership, it has since held majorities in the Soviet Senate and the Soviet Duma, and a majority of the New USSR's citizens have been members of the Party ever since 2024. Their ideology is Democratic Socialist in terms of domestic policy, and a strong foreign policy, though from 2024 to 2030 they mainly concentrated on rebuilding the country after the 2nd Civil War and jumpstarting the economy, which saw the rise of very effective government programs that have uplifted most of the nation out of poverty by 2030.

The 15 Soviet Socialist Republics

Each of the 15 Republics have their own governments, however they are ruled by one Soviet Governor, who strictly follow orders from the Premier. Each Soviet Governor is elected by the Republic's Senates. The legislatures of each of the Republics are varied in size, where every 150,000 people in each of the Republics are represented by one Senator. Unlike the main government, the Republics of the New USSR have unicameral legislatures. Interestingly, none of the Republics have the right to secede from the New Soviet Union.

Ah... I love hearing that all-too-familiar and epic tune again...
I would like to have it said that the simplified version of the Premier's Emblem will not replace the current Emblem, it was just a why-the-fuck-not mini-project I suddenly had an idea for when I saw the simplified version of the GDR emblem on Wikipedia.

This is a more simplified version of the Vertical Banner of the Premier of the New USSR, who is currently Rik Latyeskov in the year 2045.

Premier Rik Latyeskov has been the Head of State of the New USSR since 2024, leading the nation that he forged from the ashes of the 2nd Russian Civil War upon defeating the remnants of the Russian Reich, led by Fuhrer Viktor Karzhov. The people of the New USSR highly respect Latyeskov, and regard him as one of if not the greatest leader Russia has ever had. His Democratic Socialist ideology, Latyeskovism, has spread throughout the Eastern Hemisphere in the first half of the 21st Century, either by Soviet-reinforced Revolutions or all-out wars that brought down false-Socialist leaders, like Kim Jong-un in North Korea or the Maoists in China.

The New Union of Soviet Socialist Republics is a secular, Democratic Socialist nation led by Premier Rik Latyeskov. The New USSR was formed from the aftermath of the 2nd Russian Civil War when General Secretary Rik Latyeskov and the 15 Governors of the Provisional Soviet Republics signed the Treaty of Reunification on Christmas Day of 2024, which officially reunified all former Soviet Republics. Their main ideology, Latyeskovism, is very widely supported throughout the nation, and although there are other parties in the government, the New CPSU has been the majority ever since the New USSR's formation. Thanks to Latyeskov's more lenient approach to Socialism, the New USSR has seen an astounding level of economic and military growth, thus becoming the only remaining superpower in the wake of the 2nd Great Depression that struck back in 2016.
