UZBEKISTAN(
Uzbekistan!remained!rather!isolationist!throughout!much!of!the!early!21st.!It!has!a!weak!
agricultural!and!natural!resource!based!economy!and!little!regional!influence.!Due!to!fear!of!
Russian!expansion!in!Central!Asia,!Western!Tajikistan!was!absorbed!into!Uzbekistan!in!a!
referendum!that!geographically!divided!the!country!in!half!over!the!options!of!joining!either!
Jibukistan!or!Uzbekistan.!Uzbekistan!had!and!still!does!have,!a!bad!relationship!with!Kyrgyzstan,!
so!they!supported!the!creation!of!Jibukistan!and!continue!to!do!large!amounts!of!trade!with!
them.!
INDIA(
Although!the!standards!of!living!in!India!are!still!low!the!country's!economy!has!grown!

US!and!Europe.!Ever!since!the!bloody!war!with!Pakistan!and!Afghanistan!in!Kashmir!and!the!
Wakhan!corridor!India's!military!has!also!grown!in!force!meaning!that!they!now!have!a!presence!
on!the!world!stage!and!are!not!to!be!messed!with.!With!no!allies!in!the!immediate!vicinity!due!to!
their!recent!aggressiveness!in!the!war!India!only!has!minor!economic!and!diplomatic!ties!with!
China!although!they!are!not!allied.!India!is!however!on!the!lookout!to!build!allies!and!has!

AFGHANISTAN(
In!times!of!war,!Afghanistan!have!come!out!as!the!undisputed!loser.!After!losing!land!to!India!the!
general!populous!is!outraged,!although!they!also!fear!that!there!may!be!further!invasion!by!the!
fast!growing!super!power.!Afghanistan!unfortunately!cannot!act!on!this!unhappiness!due!to!
them!being!one!of!the!poorest!countries!in!the!world.!Even!though!the!people!are!angry,!the!
nation!is!unable!to!act!due!to!them!not!having!an!effective!government,!and!most!people!are!
not!even!able!to!feed!themselves.!Politically,!Afghanistan!has!very!weak!relations!with!other!
Central!Asian!countries,!however!remains!one!of!China’s!greatest!trading!partners.!
ISRAEL(
Due!to!the!heavy!support!Israel!receives!from!the!US,!it!has!been!the!only!nation!in!the!Middle!
East!to!successfully!wear!the!constant!barrage!of!wars!that!have!plagued!the!Middle!East.!Israel's!
stability!is!also!due!to!the!ethnic!cleansing!of!the!Palestinians!that!was!conducted!during!the!
early!2030s.!Although!Israel!has!an!underwhelming!number!of!allies,!the!constant!support!of!the!

had!made!a!deal!to!cut!ties!with!Russia,!and!buy!energy!from!China.!On!paper,!this!seemed!like!a!

from!Kyrgyzstan.!When!the!war!ended!in!2012,!the!current!King!took!power,!and!his!reign!has!
not!ceased.!
Throughout!its!early!years,!Jibukistan!struggled.!Many!lived!in!poverty,!despite!the!return!to!
Russian!energy.!The!government!worked!towards!fixing!the!economy,!and!had!much!success.!A!
very!large!cigarette!factory!was!established!in!the!nation’s!new!capital!of!Naryn,!which!employs!

which!expanded!their!economic!and!diplomatic!horizons!to!nations!who!previously!would!not!

the!relief!for!many!Central!Asian!nations.!Jibukistan!as!a!whole!breathed!easier,!despite!them!

was!not!on!high!alert!at!all!times.!From!this,!Jibukistan!developed!a!sizeable!military!for!its!size!as!
a!nation,!but!not!nearly!enough!to!take!on!Russian!forces.!Though!India!expanded!to!border!with!
Jibukistan!in!their!war!with!Pakistan!and!Afghanistan,!this!was!not!a!negative,!as!India!and!
Jibukistan!strengthened!their!relationship!as!trading!partners,!and!consider!themselves!to!be!on!

The!panic!amongst!many!governments!resumed!in!2040!when!Russia!unexpectedly!restarted!
their!campaign!of!expansionism!by!invading!half!of!Kazakhstan.!This!motivated!Tajikistan!to!join!
