Each country has one of the four ideologies. These cant be changed easily and may hinder or enable you to do certain diplomatic actions.

Types[edit]

Communism Communism[edit]

Communism is a form of government based on social equality and collective ownership of the means of production.

Sub-ideologies[edit]

  • Marxism: "Encompassing a broad spectrum of economic and historical views, Marxist politics seek to apply the theories of Karl Marx to political practice. Class struggle and the need for transition to a society based on common ownership of the means of production characterize these ideologies."
  • Leninism: "A political ideology based in Marxist thought, Leninism seeks to establish a socialist state by a vanguard party leading a revolution overthrowing capitalist society. Once in power, the party rules through a system whereby policies are open for internal debate until a decision has been made."
  • Stalinism: "Identifying as a form of government applying and developing Marxist-Leninist policies, Stalinism emphasizes rapid industrialization and collectivization as well as the need for a strong, authoritarian socialist state to purge any counter-revolutionary elements."
  • Anti-revisionism: "A reaction to the many ideologies claiming to be successors to Marxism, Anti-Revisionism advocates retaining key elements of original revolutionary theory. Mainly opposing incorporation of capitalist economic elements into socialist states, the ideology is defined as much by what it isn't as what it is."
  • Anarchist Communism: "An ideology embracing the idea of communism as a stateless society, Anarchist Communism eschews the idea of a transitionary socialist state and favors a society based on voluntary associations and mutual aid."

Democracy is a form of government in which the popular vote governs, directly or indirectly. It is characterized by a commitment to civil liberties.

Changing ideology[edit]

A country can change its ideology in four ways:

  • Having an election while another ideology has more than 50% support. This creates an event that enables a peaceful change of power without a civil war.
Main article: Election events
  • Executing a coup (see below)
  • Fighting and winning a civil war. The support of the conflicting ideology decides how much troops and states they get at the beginning.

  • Using the command set_ruling_party (ideology)
