Ive come back to a fair amount of these things and have decided that it is time to continue my work. My next faction build shall be (since I don't have my written transcripts for the Scottish elective monarchy and Egyptian Jihadists) The Socialist People's Republic of Alpinia! (northern Italian and Swiss commies).

Republice Popolare Socialista degli Alpini

The Socialist People's Republic of the Alpines is a decently-sized, yet very sparsely populated bolshevik-flavoured "Dictatorship of the Proleteriat," ruled with a near iron fist by the Politburo, with the "Primo de Popolare," Giovvani Esposito as the figure head of the government. The(albeit small) population is radically commnistic, truly believing that democracy will never be capable until the Perpetual Revolution has been spread throughout the world. Their leadership is almost entirely human, however, though they have found a way to render many of the nano-compoments of weaker meta-humans completely useless... An extremely well-kept secret only known to the leadership of the Alpine Communist Party, as even the scientists that devwloped the technology were killed by government forces to hide it. The population is mostly Italian, despite the country taking up all of former Switzerland and western Austria, as thousands of Italian refugees flooded into the area to escape the clutches of the Pope and other meta-humans. Swiss make up a near-tie, taking 45% to the Italian 46, and German makes up most of the rest. Propaganda is ubiquitous theoughout all facets of life, children are radicalized from ths moment they can understand the concept of communication through negative and positive feedback, and all citizens are required to serve for at least ten years in the military, and even civilians must own three guns and be adequately trained in use of them from the age of thirteen.

Government Ideology:
Democracy---------xAutocracy
Leftx---------Right
Free Market---------xState Capitalism
Open Society-----x---Closed Society
Hawk Lobbyx---------Dove lobby
Interventionistx---------Isolationist
Athiest/Secularistx---------Fanatacist

Government Overview:
-The legislative assembly of the Alpines isthe Pitburo. They make up an assembly of 563 members, each serving for life. They hold near absolute power, but can pass most of it to the Primo de Popolare during times of war and emergency.
-The Primo de Popolare, or People's Premiere, is the executive military leader and foreign figurehead of the government. An extreme cult of personality is built around him, though he only has any major powers during wartimes.
-A constitution exists, but only applies to non-members of the Alpine Communist Party, who bar all other parties from gaining government positions. Therefore, the constitution is little more than a front to use in propaganda and make them look better to foreigners. It has an extensive bill of rights, guaruntees workers living conditions, and is even more exhaustive in guarunteeing "freedom," than the FAA constitution, but ,once again, is little more than a useless sheet of paper.
-There are 3 seperate militaries:
1.The Alpine Legione Straniera, also known as the Italian Foreign Legion. It consists of foreign volunteers, criminals forced into conscription instead if prison, and indoctrinated POWs. Because of their suspiscious loyalties, only Alpinian-born citizens can be given leadership positions. This is thought of as the main military force of the Republic, because they are always the first to be sent to the front lines, so that Alpinian citizens are not put at risk.
2.L'Esercito Popolare Offensiva, also known as the Popular Offensive army. This is the primary standing army of the Republic that is most often used against enemies uf significance. It is under the direct control if the Primo De Populare, and is comprised soley of Italian and Swiss born elite soldier, specializing in blitz style tactics and shock and awe warfare.
3. i Difensori Della Rivoluzione. This force, controlled directly by the head of the Politburo, does not have an actual official name, as the direct mention of them as non-citizens is illegal. Although, they are oftentimes called the Defenders of the Revolution. They conform three major purposes: A highly specialized defensive military force that is obscured from public ete so that enemies do not know where to strike, a large scale foreign operations and internal survaillance organization, similar to the former Soviet KGB, and a force used to secretly agitate for spreading the revolution to the entire world. They are also stationed at all places that the Primo Populare is sceduled to go, and have at least five guards by his side at any time, but not for his safety. Their job us to keep him in check and brutally murder him should he ever conspire against the Politburo. Three out of Seven PdPs have been executed for attempting a coup against the government, so it is assumed they do their job well.
WHO WANTS TO LIVE HERE THEN HUH?!?!

Eh, I don't like 'em too much they seem to much like a babby between the USSR and North Korea.

And also it seems a lot more classist then most socialist countries :/

It's like you found everything idislike about various government and tossed it together. Also, I don't think anyone who hasn't fallen for the propaganda wants to live there. I suspect the migrants they do have are mostly out of either desperation, or genuine believe in the socialist system, I can't think of anyone else who would want to join. Especially not metahumans.

A) They have a tiny population.
B) The people who want to join are mostly people that have heard that they would be safe from most meta humans there, due to their secret nano-disabling tech.
C) Most authoritarian communist nations were extremely classist. North Korea, for example, is basically Shintoist Fascism disguised by a socialistic name.

I totally didn't get so overzealous with my current project (coming down the pipe sometime this weekend probably) that I forgot this existed... Nope, never.

Anyways...

I think I'll take 2-3 factions before I cap it
Just Monika.

Now uses she/her pronouns. Please, call me Lily!

Yeah I know, but Markism is supposed to be about creating only one class isn't it? How would they have heard that they would be safe there, if the technology is secret?

Also wasn't North Korea an outlier even amongst communist countries?

I thought it would be fun to set up some sort of scavengers, Raiders in north Africa… but now I'm remembering that I think North African got destroyed in this timeline didn't it? In this game is supposed to be sent directly in Europe so....eh.
They would probably turn into too much of the brotherhood of steel clone anyway, minus the excessive Xenophobia.

When I did world building, I self-modded that almost the entire middle east is desolate and uninhabitable east of Gaza.When I do the Egyptiam Jihadists, Ill go further, but basically... Kurdish refugees went to Egypt, which is still habitable, but then a Jihadist coup overthrew the still surviving Egyptian government, and began an ateempted genocide against the Kurds, who mass-exodused to Tunis, who Egypt then invaded in turn, and the Tunisians went with them as they all mass exodused to Andalucia.

Yes, Korea was much more extreme in their sense of the Cult of Personality, but still, no Marxist country has actually abolished the class system as of yet, and these guys are meant to be the worst of em.

Markism. The belief that there should only be one/no class(es) in DnD. "Mark" in this context is used to refer to the "everyman" and the idea that everyone should start play as a peasant and then develop skills and work their way up unrestrained by class.
