Etymology and terminology


Early communism

The earliest philosopher to explicitly deem their work as communist was Qarl Marx, a Quebecshirite émigré, who wrote Qarl's Manifesto in 1638. Within Quebecshire, communism failed to spread effectively, in part because of the ongoing civil war that plagued the nation during the early 17th century. The reunification of Quebecshire meant Revanchism dominated mainstream politics in the country instead.

20th Century

First Morovan Civil War

Communist groups agitated against the existing government of Morova, eventually leading to a civil war which lasted between 1920 and 1933. Following the conclusion of this civil war, a socialist republic was installed by the revolutionaries. Over the years, this republic began to resemble a dictatorship, and Premier Ivanovich expanded the range of executive powers.

Miguelist Movement in Creeperopolis

Communist Inspirations
Mariano Alcocer Fraga, leader of the Atheist Red Army, convicted as a war criminal.

The National Council for Peace and Order, otherwise known as the Miguelists, used traditionally communist symbols, such as a red flag and star as their markings, and used the Internationale as their anthem. They were a communist organization, centered mostly around hatred of traditional monarchism and what they viewed as the excesses of the Catholic Church of Creeperopolis.


The Miguelists committed a large variety of atrocities during their rule, including using the Atheist Red Army paramilitary to kill political rivals, terrorize civilians, and decimate the clergy, presided over a number of massacres, and the program of De-Catholization, which resulted in an estimated 11 million deaths. At the end of the Creeperian Civil War, the CNPO's members were tried and executed as per the San Salvador Trials, Adolfosburg Trials, Salvador Trials, La'Libertad Trials, and several others, and the leftist parties involved with the CNPO were banned. Leaders of the CNPO and the ERA were executed by burning at the stake or crucifixion.

Partisan Resistance

From 1949 to 1957, various partisan groups, mostly aligned with the ideas of Qarl Marx and Miguelism, resisted Creeperian rule. The National Democratic Organization, lead by Ernesto Guevara Castro, and the Miguelist loyalists, lead by Pascual Espinar Casaus, were considered the most prominent partisan groups. Partisan resistance would however be crushed on April 5, 1957, when the 15th Creeperian Army kill many partisan leaders and soldiers and civilians in the Massacre of the Seven Thousand.


La'Matanza (translated as The Massacre) was a peasant uprising that occurred from January 22, 1979, until March 24, 1979, in the San Adolfo viceroyalty of Xichútepa, Creeperopolis. The rebellion was lead by peasants workers of the National Coffee and Sugar Corporation (CORNACA) on the coffee and sugar fields. The private security force of CORNACA attempted to crush the rebellion but failed and plead the Creeperian government for help. The Creeperian Army, being vastly superior in terms of weapons and soldiers, executed those who stood against it and crushed the rebellion in eight days. The rebellion was a mixture of protest and insurrection which ended in a massacre, claiming the lives of an estimated 1,000 to 1,500 peasants.

Gbenye and The Disturbance

Marx's teachings inspired a Lyoan philosopher known as Pierre Gbenye. He took the basis of Marx's ideas and adapted them to Lyoa, establishing what would come to be known as Gizengism. The ideology was detailed in the book, On the State of Affairs in Lyoa. Gbenye was shot and killed in 1968 for his writings.

During the multi-decade conflict known as The Disturbance, a paramilitary group was formed in 1959 calling itself the Gizengist Front for Liberation. It announced that it was waging a "people's war" to destroy the New Lyoa Kingdom and establish a communist state. The group carried out a number of bombings and assassinations during the conflict, and eventually merged with the Lyoan Revolutionary Alliance during the Lyoan Revolution. The group was longer active after 1967.

Modern impact

Communist states



Alexei Karamazov challenged Ivanovich's government, leading a revolution to overthrow the government in a civil war that began in 2019. After securing power following the civil war, Karamazov granted himself the title of "Grand Admiral of Morova", and began a disastrous military dictatorship, marked by a series of foreign policy failures. The Karamazov regime was dennounced by the Terraconserva Council of Nations for terrorism practiced against its population, removed from the Terraconserva Economic Union, and received sanctions for breaches of international law. Karamazov was eventually deposed by an international trial organized under the Terraconserva Council of Nations Security Council's 14th resolution, Mandate for the International Trial of Alyosha Karamazov.


Communist parties

Communist Party of Quebecshire

As of 2020, CPQ has been described as a fringe party, holding less then 3% of the seats in the Quebecshirite parliament. Their impact on politics in the country can be safely considered negligible.

Forces of Revolutionary Change (Lyoa)

Forces of Revolutionary Change is a far-left political party operating in the Lyoan government. Their status as communist is disputed.

Communist terrorist groups


Outcome of communist nations

José Mancebo Matez's book El Libro Negro del Comunismo wrote about the atrocities committed by Terraconserva's communist regimes, and notably alleges that at least 30 million people have died as a result of communist governments or movements. The book touches on the program of extermination put into place against Creeperan Catholics by the Miguelists and the inhumanities that were being committed in Morova under the regime of Ivanovich.

Reactionary Movements


The largest modern reactionary movement to date is the program of anticommunist crackdowns in Creeperopolis, which employs its national intelligence agency, paramilitary death squads, and a formal ban on communist texts, symbols, and music in order to combat communism. There are allegations that the Creeperan government uses its anticommunist policies to harass political enemies, allegations that the government has denied.


The international intervention by the Terraconserva Council of Nations in Morova, where the socialist regime of Karamazov was deposed and the nation annexed to Groffenord was classified by some as a reactionary movement, but within academia these claims do not hold any merit.
