The Proletariat Coalition (TPC) is one of the largest socialist regions in NationStates, with particularly close relations with its sister regions: the Allied States of EuroIslanders and the Anticapitalist Alliance. TPC was the co-founding region of the Red Liberty Alliance along with the ASE.


Prelude and Foundation

The Proletariat Coalition was founded, before the game had founders, by Haderan who served as the region's first delegate. Haderan had moved from the Pacific to several minor regions before searching for a region with a valued social-conscience - discovering the Anticapitalist Alliance.

Though impressed with the community in the ACA, he eventually became disillusioned with the delegate-centred government structure. This prompted Haderan to foster the idea of a government which welcomed motivated young nations, which he christened Proletariat Coalition.

Around early-March 2003, Haderan posted in the ACA's regional message board his intention to leave and outlining his vision for the new region he intended to setup. As Haderan ceased to exist before he could continue his memoirs, it is unknown how the plan proceeded over the course of March 2003. However, April heralded many of the region's oldest members arrivals, witnessing the establishment of the ministries of Foreign Affairs, the Interior and Defence in mid-April.

Turmoil and the Return to Normality

The period between April and August is again sketchy, due to a lack of information. Haderan stepped-down as delegate in late-July, temporarily handing the delegacy to interior minister Cwajga for a month until he too had to step-down due to real life committments. His interior predecessor, PileAlcalin, inherited the delegacy for almost a month, until he also had to leave. This period has been likened to the brief rules of Andropov and Chernenko.

A new delegate election was called in which Jako won the endorsement vote and began his first term. Regional stability saw TPC engage with other regions - joining the MASS Alliance, and MAP Treaty. The Constitution was also written at this time by Southern Tasmania, loosely basing it on that of The Atheist Empire.

First Anniversary and Rise

As the delegacy passed to Blackbird, TPC continued to grow and mature into 2004. The People's High Court was officially named and established, becoming a gateway for new members participate.

With the end of the Atlantic War, security became a major policy concern. The MASS Alliance was considered structurally poor and had disintergrated, prompting Blackbird and EuroSoviets to form the Red Liberty Alliance. TPC continued to ascend as a major power, tightening security by joining the ADN in June.

In the same month, the deleted Haderan and PileAlcalin were revived to much excitement, and Haderan familiarised himself with the barely recognisible region he had left the previous year - even going so far as to join the August/September Court bench amidst speculation he would run for delegate or a ministry in the June elections. Sadly, both PileAlcalin and Haderan slipped into inactivity with the end of the Summer.

The brief return of the founder of the region sparked a sense of rejuvination and an intense delegate election of three candidates and a record turn-out never before seen.

It was the motion for withdrawl from the ADN which brought the differences between the older ("first generation") and newer ("second generation") members to the fore. Numerous clashes over several issues, internal and external, through the second half of 2004 and into 2005 lead to regional reform around the second anniversary of TPC's founding.

The Second Generation

On April 20th 2005, a new constitution was adopted and the regional government was restructured. The existing elected ministerial positions were retained and joined by two new ministries temporarily appointed by delegate Soviet Sexy Girls - Justice and Citizen Information (which was split from the Interior - now called Recruitment & Activity). The People's Assembly was established as the ultimate body on regional matters, open to all UN nations (and those with speical dispensation from the delegate) of good standing.

The second constitution came into full effect at the June 2005 elections. Paranoidm was elected as delegate in September 2005 and is considered the first delegate of the "Second Generation". With the political rift growing between the older and younger nations, several nations declared their intention to leave TPC politics and the offsite forum, preferring to engage in political discussion on the Civil HQ - as in the early days of the region. According to some, this loss of active players began an activity crisis. However, it should be noted that activity was at an all-time high during this period despite the heavy tensions.

Third Anniversary and Decline

As with all of NS, severe inactivity currently plagues the region. The March Delegate Election was planned in early February and the polls were scheduled to open on the usual 1st of the month - instead, failing to open until the 17th. In response to Dobbyniania's own inactivity and failure to turn around the decline of the region, Blackbird won a landslide 80% of the votes, returning to the position of Delegate he first held just over two years ago. In an attempt to prevent elections from tying up government for 6 weeks, an amendment was passed extending terms from three months to four. Blackbird won a second landslide in June with 13 votes (81.25%) against dual-citizen EuroSoviets's 2 votes. The ministerial elections, however, did not not occur as scheduled.

By the midpoint of 2006, inactivity was rife. The Summer Lull hit the ministries still operating and the Justice, Activity and Recruitment, and Citizen Information ministries were recombined into the Committe of The Interior with 3/4 approval in June, leaving all ministries vacant. The 15th delegate election is due at the start of October, and not September as many have mistakenly called.
