Operational Context

Reshmaan Province Brief Overview

Reshmaan Province is a province of the nation of Takistan, bordering Afghanistan, Russia and Tajikistan. It is poor with few exports. The country is run by President Al Sharim, a military dictator who came to power early in the 1980s.

Reshmaan Province today boasts one of the most heavily armed and organised militaries for its size. The main source of income for the country is its coal and agricultural exports. While the country grows food crops in order to feed itself, the majority of crops are cash crops such as poppy, cannabis, and coca.
