Gorghendi Kahn was elected president on the Fedderal Socialist Party ticket after the failure of the Provisional Republic. Following the election, Kahn and the Federal Socialists marched on the Ciudella, also known as the Winter Palace, ceremoniously, to celebrate the victory. Kahn immediately repealed the neutant slavery law, emancipating the neutants who had continued to suffer under Cesar Georg Nicholai Romanovski.
President Kahn is pictured here chatting with Captain Josef Wepka, cousin to Kahn’s fellow revolutionary Josip Wepka, just inside the carriage gate of the Ciudella--the seat of Rocaterrania’s government and Kahn’s home as president in the capital city, Ciudad Eldorado. Kahn is seen wearing a cast after breaking his leg in a car accident. He kept his vow to never again drive an automobile.
While visiting the KZ Ranch as a college student, Kuhler was on his way home from visiting friends when the Jeep he was driving overturned. He was not seriously injured in the accident, but Kuhler vowed that he would never again drive an automobile. He remained true to his word, and for the rest of his life, he got around on foot, by public transportation, taxis, and rides from friends.
The architecture of the Ciudella was inspired by three famous structures in Russia. One wing of the Ciudella was inspired by the Winter Palace in Saint Petersburg, the other by the Kremlin in Moscow. Situated within the walls of the Ciudella, the architecture of the Russian Orthodox Church of Rocaterrania was inspired by Saint Basil’s Cathedral, also in Moscow.
