Dictorial Rule of Russia


November 8th marked the election of Lenin into the Chairmans spot on the Council of People's Commissars. This basically meant he was the head of the soviet state of Russia. Russia was renamed the Union of Soviet Socialist Republic (USSR). During his rule, Lenin signed peace treaties to remove Russia from the war. Lenin restored order throughout Russia by making political reforms and releasing his New Economic Policy.

Under the new policy Russia's economy was molded around capitalism, but not the the extreme. Peasants could still buy and sell small crops and textiles for profit. However, large businesses like banks and means of communication were still controlled by the government. Lenin encouraged people to make investments with foreign companies.

Lenin's political reforms helped him keep full control of the country. He broke Russi into small, self-governing republics, but kept a central government to govern over all of the people. The Bolsheviks were renamed simplyt he Communist Party since they had followed the Communist views of Marx, which were of a classless society.

The new policies and peace through treaties helped the USSR to slowly recover.
