    Francoism is an Authoritarian Right ideology that believes that the beliefs of Francisco Franco should be implemented. He is very nationalistic, militaristic, and catholic.



    It all started in 1936 during the beginning of the Spanish civil war. Franco-alt.png Franco emerged as the dominant rebel military leader and was proclaimed Head of State on 1 October 1936, ruling a dictatorship over the territory controlled by the Nationalist faction. The 1937 Unification Decree, which merged all parties supporting the rebel side, led to Nationalist Spain becoming a single-party regime under the Flang.png FET y de las JONS

    After the civil war

    At the end of the civil war, the nationalists won and Franco became dictator of all of Spain. WW2 then broke out, and Spain did not join the Axis powers (Nazi.png Germany, Showa.png Japan and Fash.png Italy) because of how war-torn the country was—or at least that was Franco’s alibi. Then the 1947 Law of Succession made Spain a de jure "Kingdom" again but it wasn't. Reforms were implemented in the 1950s and Spain abandoned autarky, kicked out the Flang.png Falangist movement, which had been prone to isolationism, to a new breed of economists, the technocrats of Opus Dei. This led to massive economic growth, second only to Japan, that lasted until the mid-1970s, known as the "Spanish miracle". In 1955 Spain joined the United Nations and Franco was one of Europe's most outspoken anti-communist figures: his regime was assisted by the Western powers, particularly the United States, and it was asked to join NATO.

    Death of Franco

    Franco died in 1975 at the age of 82. He restored the monarchy before his death and made his successor Conmon.png King Juan Carlos I, who would lead the Spanish transition to Dem.png democracy. This would be the end of Francoism in Spain.

    PostFrancoism.png Sociological Francoism/Post-Francoism

    Sociological Francoism or also called as Post-Francoism means that the political ideas of Francisco Franco continue to be in the society and politics of Spain despite hs death.

    Mainly this can happen due to the support of ideas that the caudillo mainly defended as Sec.png Authoritarianism, Catheo.png National Catholicism Nation.png, Strato.png Militarism, Technocracy.png Technocracy and other ideals, but also this can be expressed with phrases like "Con Franco vivíamos mejor" (With Franco we lived better) and "Esto con Franco no pasaba" (This with Franco didn't happen) in a sarcastic or serious way.


    Francoism believes in Sec.png Authoritarianism, Anticommunism.png Anti-Communism, Cball-Spain.png unitarian Spanish nationalism and Catheo.png National Catholicism Nation.png, it sought Spain to become a monarchy to appease React.png reactionaries with the 1947 Law of Succession made Spain a de jure kingdom, heavily utilizing imagery and concepts that reference the Catholic Kings of Old Spain in order to praise them as national symbols of true Spanish identity (while Franco's government wasn't a monarchy itself but instead a personalized dictatorship), Strato.png Militarism, Ultranat.png Ultranationalism,. It also believes Anti-Masonry.png in extreme Anti-Masonry, anti-separatism, and anti-parliamentarianism. Despite its deeply ideological governance, it advocates for a Technocracy.png non-ideological cabinet based on skill.

    Some say that it's also a Spanish variant of fascism, but this is disputable. While it had a close relationship with Italian and German fascist ideologies and shared similar aesthetics, it arguably isn't fascist itself in the traditional sense, especially after WWII ended. Rather, it became more of a spiritual predecessor for the far-right South American juntas of the '70s (Pinochet, Stroessner, Videla...) mainly due to its pioneering of the "developmental state" (a regime which synthesizes high authoritarianism, revivalist nationalism and social ultraconservatism with broadly technocratic economic liberal policies).

    Personality and Behavior

    Francoism is a very serious and stern ball. He is also very proudly religiously-inspired in his feverish nationalism, usually seen celebrating Spain and her eternal glory. He is also very vocally Catholic and is usually seen either at church, praying, or singing "Ave Maria!" or "Gloria in excelsis Deo!" He is also not that great at speaking English and often his English sounds broken.

Even though America kinda pressured to implement these policies in exchange for aid and acceptance.
