Government Officials Edit
Ryas' President is Dimitri Valko, a Hungarian man at 6'5, weighing 223 pounds. His birth was on the day of October 8th, 1968, in the Hungarian town of Tokaj. He became Ryas' President in the election of March 1992, and has proven himself as a capable diplomat, and wartime strategist. He has stated he will run for re-election in March of 1998, with large support by his citizenry. Vice President Fedor Chadov is relatively unknown to many, but his role in succeeding Dimitri in case of assassination, wartime death, or sickness, is very important.
Military Strength Edit
Ryas' military, the Grand Ryasian Militants, which accounts for approximately twelve percent of Ryas' population, are recognized as loyal soldiers fighting for their nation, and as such, fight under direct command of President Valko. Valko's success in his defensive war against the Federate Spartan Colonies ended in the complete destruction of the entirety of the opposing nation. Ryas' second General, Hungarian-Born Andor Kozma, was commended with the title on March 17th, 1997, while Valko denounced himself as Head General.
Allied Nations Edit
Ryas' closest allies are Khevin  and Mothaya , led by Vladimir Zhogin and Mothman respectively. Upon the founding of Ryas, Valko negotiated with Zhogin, and learned much of his nation. They shared ideals and principles, and established a pact, to mutually support each other in times of war. Mothman, an ally of Zhogin's, helped along the way and came with a similar pact in protection. The newest allies of Ryas include the Nestingland of Krakke, led by Emperor Penguin Rikkar, and the nation of Canada, led by Prime Minister Eric.
