The Commonwealth of the Stations of the Ring Line (HANSA)

Shortened to Hansa, this faction is a collection of stations that occupy the Koltsevaya Ring Line of the Metro. Formed during the early days of the Metro when Central Metro Command fell, Hansa is the most powerful faction in the Metro. Their influence stretches in all directions due to their line being impossible to bypass, meaning Hansa grew incredibly rich. Although their security forces are well equipped, they rarely seek war, preferring to use economic sanctions to suppress their neighbours. They also protect a number of satellite factions, in return for food, electricity and so on.

The Commonwealth of the Stations of the Ring Line emerged shortly after central control was disbanded. Crossing all other lines, these stations were vital points of trade routes. They quickly became the place for all traders, becoming incredibly rich in a short amount of time. Soon they understood that their wealth would become the envy of others, and took the only possible decision: they formed the Commonwealth. Its official name is rarely used, though, because people were quick to title them "Hansa" - after the Hanseatic League (Hansa), an alliance of trading cities in the Middle Ages.

The so-called "Northern Arc" included at first stations from Kievskaya to Prospekt Mira, the other fraction consisted of Kurskaya, Taganskaya and Oktyabrskaya. Later Paveletskaya and Dobryninskaya joined the Hansa, and the "Southern Arc" emerged. But the key obstacle to joining this ring of power was in the Sokolnicheskaya Line (renamed Red Line). This led to one of the major conflicts in the Metro, the war between Hansa and the Red Line.

After this war, with a mutually-beneficial agreement signed by Red Line and Hansa, resulting in the acquisition of the Lenin Library station by Polis, and the acquisition of the Ploschad Revolutsii (Revolution Square) station by the Red Line. However, Hansa benefitted the most as this meant Hansa occupied every station on the Ring Line, allowing Hansa traders to quickly navigate the Metro, as well as forcing outside traders to pay for passage. Despite their unequal exchange, the Red Line was happy with their deal as it gave them easy access to Red Square and the monuments of old Russia, something the Communist Red Line revered greatly. Hansa forgot its old conflict, seeing a worthy trade partner in the Red Line.
