Rumekistan, officially Republic of Rumekistan (Repubublika Rumekistan), is a central European country that seceded from the Soviet Union. The capital city and seat of government was Barjñov. Once it had established itself as an independent nation, Rumekistan quickly suffered from extreme poverty as well as both sectarian and religious strife since the nation's population was equal parts Christian and Muslim.
Flag-Smasher and U.L.T.I.M.A.T.U.M., in coordinated attacks in war torn nations, destabilized countries in their objective to create a libertarian one-world government. In Rumekistan, the Flag-Smasher was confronted by the V-Battalion and Citizen V, who convinced the Flag-Smasher that he should not force his ideas on others but should achieve them through generations of a concerted social agenda. He agreed to cease all hostilities, and the V-Battalion used their technology to cause Rumekistan's army to fall asleep, allowing the Flag-Smasher to quickly and bloodlessly take control of the country. The Flag-Smasher set himself as ruler, hoping this would be the first step towards his dream of global harmony.
Cable came to the country soon after Domino assassinated Flag-Smasher. Cable, who had been the secret leader of the Rumekistan Resistance, was proclaimed President Pro Tem of the entire country. This was, in part, an event manipulated by Citizen V, who was masquerading as the slightly more public face of the Resistance.
Although things started to turn for the better, the country was targeted by organized attacks, sponsored by the U.S. Government, to destroy Cable's credibility. The Six Pack attempted to disrupt Barjnov's power grid, and in the process Cable was shot by Deadpool, who had joined the Six Pack in secret after losing faith in Cable's messianic vision. Cable fixed the damage with his powers and directly accused the U.S. for its complicity, backed up by Domino's confession to such. When Cable appeared to have been killed, a grand statue of him was erected in Barjnov. However, Cable had already succeeded in setting up a government to replace him.
The new government was led by President Yuskevitch, who cleaved strongly to Cable's ideals, sponsoring international efforts to secure abandoned weapons caches, military bases, and science labs before they could be claimed by terrorists, and try to repurpose them to benefit the rest of the world.
