    Imperialism is an ideology (although it can be argued that it is more of a practice or policy than an actual ideology) that has traditionally believed a country should expand their power or influence through military action. Imperialism was once very popular and controlled the Overton Window, but has decreased in popularity over the years. Imperialism is noted for his war advocacy and belief that the powerful nations should rule over the weaker ones. Imperialism differs from Nation.png Nationalism in that he doesn't necessarily believe its nation is the best - though this is common - but rather believes that the big nations in general should rule over the small ones. He is generally seen as being in the authoritarian right area of the compass, but can potentially exist in the others. He defends himself against accusations of oppression by insisting that colonized people benefit because the richer nation helps them and gives them things they couldn't get normally, and they'll eventually get used to being part of a larger empire.

    In 1492, Christopher Colombus, an Italian who worked for Spain, founded some islands while trying to find India. He had landed in the Bahamas. This was the first time a European power discovered the Americas (of course, he didn't. Vikings had an abandoned 10th century settlement in Canada's Newfoundland)


    On May 4, 1493, Spain, along with Portugal moved the line of demarcation that claimed all lands west to Spain (thus lending Brazil to Portugal).

    The economic system in the Spanish colonies was based on forced labour, aka Slavery.png Slavery. Initially, Spaniard authorities known as the "encomenderos" would capture the Native.png native people and enslave them to mine natural resources from the land, which in Peru was already practiced back in the Tawantinsuyu Empire. While this further more enriched the empire, it caused Natives to die of the brutal conditions, so the Spainards partook in the Alantic slave trade, where they shipped thousands to milions of Blacknat.png Africans. For the remaining pure-blood natives, they introduced the Law of Burgos to abolish slavery against natives, and later Philip II introduced the 8-hour working day, which would also apply for natives.

    It is alleged that hey had a caste system as well, based on how Spanish you are. On top, they were the "Peninsulares", the Spanish term for Spaniards born on the country of Spain itself. Right below were the "Criollos" that had no different with the penisulares other than bring born in the Americas than Spain itself; if you go even lower, you were encounter "Mestizos" and "Mulattos", Africans and Natives that have mixed Spanish blood; and on the bottom are the rest of the Natives and Blacks, know as the "Indios" and "Negros"; they had pure blood and none of the Spanish compared to the mixed Mestizos and Mulattos. However, in fact, there were African slaves who bought their freedom, and others were liberated if their owner commited abuses; also, there was an indigenous nobility.

    Conclusion, is, the Spainards colonized the Americas for the three important reasons. Gold, assimilation, and religion.

    FrenchImperialism.pngCball-SouthVietnam.png French Indochina

    The First Indochina War was between the French Colonial Forces and the Viet Minh anti-colonial resistance from 1946 to 1954.

    On 23 September 1945, with the knowledge of the British commander in Saigon, French forces overthrew the local DRV government and declared French authority restored in Southern Vietnam, and began to gradually retake control of the entire country forcing Ho Chi Minh and his comrades underground. The French tried to stabilize Indochina by reorganizing it as a Federation of Associated States. In 1949, they put former Emperor Bảo Đại back in power, as the ruler of a newly established Cball-SouthVietnam.png State of Vietnam.

    The first few years of the war involved a low-level rural insurgency against the French. In 1949 the conflict turned into a conventional war between two armies equipped with modern weapons from other countries. The French were supported by Cball-US.png the US and Cball-Taiwan.png the ROC ChiangKaiShek.png, with an army consisting of troops from their Colonial.png colonial empire which included both Blacknat.png African Bokassa.png, PanArab.png Arab, and PanAsian.png Asian collaborators. The Viet Minh was supported by Cball-China.png Communist China Mao.png and Cball-USSR.png the Soviet Union.

    The First Indochina War came to an end following the International Geneva Conference on July 21, 1954, when the new socialist French government and the Việt Minh made an agreement that gave the Việt Minh control of North Vietnam above the 17th parallel. The south continued under Bảo Đại. A year later, Bảo Đại would be deposed by his Prime Minister, Persondignity.png Ngô Đình Diệm, creating Cball-SouthVietnam.png the Republic of Vietnam (South Vietnam).

    Cball-Japan.png Japan Meiji.pngTaishō.pngShowa-kanmuri.pngPanAsian.png

    Main Article: Showa-kanmuri.png Showa Statism

    Cball-Japan.png Japan is a recent example of imperialism. Also known as the Tokugawa Shogunate at the time, they had gone with an Isolationist.png isolationist policy or also known as "Sakoku" (鎖国, literally "chained country") for 200~ years with the exception of trading with the Dutch, Chinese, Portuguese, and more. This had soon stopped with the help of Cball-US.png America's interests towards the outside world as America began the process of forcefully trading with the Japanese in 1854. The following years would have Japan sign unequal treaties which destroyed the economy with Japan would begin opening up to Western trade and culture and studying Western-based sciences. This caused immediate backlash towards the shogunate, which materialized into a radical, anti-western, xenophobic movement. A popular slogan known as "Sonnō jōi" (尊王攘夷, Revere the Emperor, expel the barbarians a.k.a. western foreigners) began to spread. The Meiji.pngemperor would issue an order that had planned to kick out all foreigners from Japan and to stop these unequal treaties from happening. Yet the shogunate itself had no intentions in enforcing such order, which caused inspired attacks against foreigners and the shogunate. Tensions escalated as the Cball-UK.png British demanded reparations for the violence against its people in Japan, which was simply ignored. The Japanese people and the clans of Japan would ally together in a coup in 1866.

    The Satsuma-Chōshū alliance as it was known along with the 15-year-old emperor Meiji joined forces as the Shogun resigned and had his authority given to the emperor, which marked the beginning of the Japanese Empire in 1868. After the Boshin War between forces loyal to the emperor and forces loyal to the Shogun, the Emperor would become victorious and would begin a process of modernization and a restoration of stability and imperial rule. Japan would begin studying Western practices and sending observers towards Western countries to study. Westernization began as Japan would begin making their system based on the Bism.png Prussia's military system. They would begin their conquests now as they took Hokkaido in 1869, Chishima Islands in 1875, Ryukyu Islands in 1879, and Nanpo Islands in 1891, while making treaties with foreign powers such as Russia. In 1894, the Japanese would fight against the Cball-Qing.png Qing Empire in the Sino-Japanese War for influence over Korea and Japanese desperation for resources, which ended in Japan occupying Korea and China ceding the islands of Taiwan and Penghu in the Treaty of Shimonoseki.

    The United States of America is one of the greatest examples of imperialism, one flexing it in all of its forms. It can't be denied America was or still imperialist at a point. From the Clib.png Classical Liberal era to modern Necon.png Neoconservative/Neoliberal.png Neoliberal times. Many Americans that fought slavery such as Seminole and Apache that resisted the genocide against their people and culture would had been historically demonized by the American government in what was "historical revisionism".

    The background story was that the USA was a settler-colonialist state established by Cball-England.png the Kingdom of England, later the Cball-GB.png Kingdom of Great Britain in Jamestown, Virginia, on the land of the Powhattan natives. Although Roanoke Colony was founded in 1585, what happened to the settlement remained a mystery. After successfully fighting off the Native.png natives of Virginia, more colonies were brought to existance, such as Massachusetts Bay, New Hampshire, Maryland, Rhode Island, Connecticut, the Carolinas, and Georgia. New York, New Jersey, and Delaware were added upon the annexation of New Netherland in 1664. By 1732, there were an overwiew of Cball-13Colonies.png Thirteen Colonies as a whole. Eventually the expensixe taxes and tight authority Cball-GB.png Great Britain pushed the colonies to revolt led by Washdem2.png a certain known man. By 1783, the American Revolutionary War of independence was halted with the 1783 Trety of Paris, and the United States was born, and was allowed to manifest its destiny.

    Almost immediately, colonists moved westward past the Appalachian Mountains into the former Indian reserves the Brits would've never allowed. This incited conflict with the people living there, of course. An example of this was on May 28th 1830, when Andrew Jackson signed the Indian Revomal Act. This relocated Native.png native americans from Georgia, Mississippi, Albania, to a long walk to the territory today of Oklahoma. Those 5 major Indian tribes; Chocktaw, Creek, Cherokee, Choctaw, and Seminole had to travel barefoot on the Trail or Tears certainly in the winter, followed by white american soldiers under the orders of Jackson. Many died on the way thanks to diseases, frost, and malnutrition/dehydration.

    After WW2, the US government created Cball-NATO.png the Northern Atlantic Treaty Organization along with Cball-UK.png the UK, Cball-Germany.png FRG, Cball-France.png France, and other pro-American countries. NATO was involved in 70 regime change attempts during Cold War. This includes the Korean War, which killed 2-3 Korean civilians and destroyed 85% of North Korean buildings. The Vietnam War lasted ten years and saw 2 million civilians perish, with 388,000 tons of napalm dropped on the Vietnamese land. US under Nixon’s U.S. Secretary of State HenryKissinger.png Henry Kissinger also launched Operation Condor, which couped many pro-Soviet Socauth.png social authoritarians and Demsocstar.png democratic socialists and replaced them with notorious Nazcap-Hat.png National Capitalist tyrants, such as Videla.png Jorge Rafael Videla, NDA-Banzer.png Hugo Benzer, ColoradoParty-Stroessner.png Alfredo Stroessner, and Pinochet-hat.png Augusto Pinochet. These actions saw mass killings and prosecutions of political dissidents carried out by far-right dictators and directly caused the deaths of 60-80k people, with millions plunged into poverty.

    After the end of the Cold War, the US gained world hegemony as the world’s sole superpower. It immediately started mass campaigns against any country that dared to disobey its orders. Since 1991, the US launched at least 251 military operations, including the Afghanistan War, which lasted 20 years and costed the US 2 trillion dollars, the Iraq War, the Invasion of Libya, the NATO intervention in the Syrian Civil War, etc. The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have killed at least 500k civilians, with millions suffering from food insecurity and poverty. In 2021, after the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan, the Bidenism.png Biden Administration froze the 3.5 billion Afghan funds due to the Cball-Taliban.png Taliban takeover, with many experts warning that a potential famine is looming in Afghanistan due to the mix of US blockade and intellectuals and talented and skilled people fled from the Taliban to western countries.

    Main Articles: Stalin.png Stalinism, Khrusch.png Khrushchevism, and Brezhnev.png Brezhnev Doctrine

    The Soviet Union (USSR) has often been accused of being a "great red empire" by spreading imperialism onto Eastern Europe and the rest of the world. The post-war Stalinist foreign policy is characterized by radical expansionism and domination of Eastern Europe. After the allied Triumph in 1945 against the Axis Powers, the Stalinist USSR implemented the policies of domination of Eastern Europe. The forceful imposition of the communist state system and ideology by the Stalinist USSR, as well as the overt emphasis on heavy industry development in Eastern Europe, have similarities to the practice of Colonial.png colonialism. The Eastern European satellites were economically reliant on the USSR and was subjected to the red army’s iron fist rule, and the USSR forced these countries to reject the Marshall Plan.[1]

    The Cominform, for example, was formed to exert direct control over the Soviet satellite states within the Soviet sphere of influence and give the USSR the power to intervene their politics directly.[2] Czechoslovakian Prime Minister EdvardBenes.png Edvard Beneš was also forced to resign following the threats of red army invasion of the country. Stalin’s successors, including NikitaKhrushchev.png Nikita Khrushchev and Brezhnev.png Leonid Brezhnev, albeit being less exploitive than the Stalinist regime, largely continued the policy of violent suppression of anti-Soviet uprisings through the repression of protests, military invasions and force regime change in these countries.

    Another form of accusation by communist states “SocImp.png social imperialism”, originating by Mao.png Maoism and Hoxha.png Hoxhaism to describe the USSR´s policy of “Brezhnev Doctrine” pioneered under Brezhnev.png Leonid Brezhev. A common example was when in 1968, Leonid Brezhnev crushed an uprising in Cball-Czechia.png socialist Czechoslovakia, ousting political dissent and political leader Dubcekism.png Alexander Dubcek.


    Colonial.png Colonialism

    Colonialism is the policy of a country or group of countries aimed at subjugating another state, territory or people through military, political or economic coercion. The political basis of colonialism is expanding a nation's influence and international presence through this acquisition of territory. It is based economically on the allocation of capital abroad in exchange for cheap resources and labor. Colonialism also means the fundamental inequality of relations between the metropolis and the colony (province).

    Colonialism is accompanied by economic exploitation, the destruction of native culture, ethnocultural and religious characteristics, the imposition of official metropolitan culture, the formation of an ideology that justifies domination (racism, messianism, etc.), spreading imperial myths and stereotypes.

    Cultmp.png Cultural Imperialism

    Cultural imperialism is the practice of promoting, isolating and artificially bringing the culture of one society into another. Usually a large, economically or militarily powerful nation brings and promotes its culture. Cultural imperialism can be both an active, formal policy and as general attitude. Theorists of PostColonial.png postcolonialism study cultural imperialism as a form of non-military hegemony.

    As an example, western countries produce the majority of media, such as films, music and comics. They have the money to produce them, while Third World countries buy these products because they are cheaper than producing them themselves. Therefore, Third World countries watch and consume media containing Western ways of life, beliefs and thoughts, becoming assimilated and thus erasing their own culture, whether voluntary or not.

    Moderateimperialism-icon.png Soft Imperialism

    For ideologies that are accused of being moderate of soft imperialist, see: Irridentism.png Irredentism and Pan-Nationalism.png Pan-Nationalism.

    It can be argued that Soft Imperialism and Cultural Imperialism are intertwined, as they both seek to expand their sphere of influence in a non-violent way.

    Many pan-nationalist ideas have been accused of being imperialist because of the dominance of one country over the others, such as PanSlav.png Pan-Slavism with Russia being the dominant nation.

    Galactic Imperialism is a hypothetical Ideology that supports the expansion of Imperialism into the outer space, often in order to gain new ressources and achieve Galactic dominance.


    Suzerainty is a relationship in which one state or other polity controls the foreign policy and relations of a tributary state, while allowing the tributary state to have internal autonomy. The dominant state is called the "suzerain". Suzerainty differs from sovereignty in that the tributary state is technically independent, but enjoys only limited self-rule. Although the situation has existed in a number of historical empires, it is considered difficult to reconcile with 20th- or 21st-century concepts of international law, in which sovereignty is a binary concept, which either exists or does not. While a sovereign state can agree by treaty to become a protectorate of a stronger power (eg. Cball-Cooks.png small island states of Oceania), modern international law does not recognise any way of making this relationship compulsory on the weaker power. Suzerainty is a practical, de facto situation, rather than a legal, de jure one.

    Thalassocracy.png Thalassocracy

    Thalassocracy is a political ideology that holds for a state that has naval control over a body of water (specifically seas and even oceans), either militarily or commercially. However, Thalassocracy is more of a policy rather than an ideology. As a policy it is easiest to implement in an authoritarian right society, but can work in any ideology with a state that maintains trade and/or a military.

    Tellur.png Tellurocracy

    Tellurocracy is an ideology, which is more of a policy. It focuses on land development and inland expansion, as opposed to Thalassocracy.png Thalassocracy, which focuses on dominating power around a body of water.

    In theory, Tellurocracy is classified as following; a sedentary lifestyle (while resettlement colonization is not excluded), conservatism, constancy of legal norms, the presence of a powerful bureaucratic apparatus and central authority, strong infantry, but a weak navy.

    Notable Tellurocracies include, but not limited to Ancient China, Cball-Persia.png Ancient Persia, Res Publica.png Roman Empire, Cball-MongolEmpire.png Mongol Empire, Cball-Russia.png Russia, Cball-US.png United States in the early-to-mid 19th century, etc.


    He believes that subjugation of other weaker nations by stronger ones is necessary for survival whether pacifist or militarist (preferably the latter).


    The justifications for Imperialism, vary from time period and region. While imperialism is almost always done out of the self-interest of the motherland many empires have tried to find moral justifications to gain public support for invading and conquering other nations.

    In western countries such as the UK, France, and Belgium the colonization of Africa was justified through missionary arguments of freeing native Africans from local warlords. Even though natives in the European colonies (especially in the Congo Free State) worked under slave-like conditions for their white masters, apologists (such as historian Bruce Gilley) argue that they were still better of under colonial rule than they were under native elites.

    The United States justified its expansionism of the American continent throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries through Manifest Destiny and Monroe Doctrine.

    Expansionism practiced by non-western countries such as Russia/Soviet Union and Japan is generally justified by countering western imperialism for the sake of self-preservation. The Empire of Japan justified its conquest of other Asian countries through the "East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere" which served as a counterbalance to European/American colonialism in the region.

    • Nation.png Nationalism - Depends if I conquer for him, or if I conquer him.
    • Jingoism.png Jingoism - See above.
    • Reactcross.png Reactionaryism - One can clearly see that Africa, America, and Southeast Asia were better off under European rule and that granting these places independence has only made them worse in the long run. However, I like to call anyone who dares to resist my expansionist influence a reactionary who tries and fails to stop the natural progression of history.
    • Sep.png Separatism - Hmmm... If we're talking about my clay, then these parasites should be crushed! But when it comes to my rivals, then I can use those revolts to destabilize them. As long as Separatiststan supports me, that is.

    • Orthlen.png Leninism - You reconquered most of the seceded parts of the former Russian Empire and... handed the reigns over them to the locals? WHAAAAT??? And I'll never forget nor forgive how you denounced me in that goddamn book! At least, you made sure to have your ideological allies rule those lands and (unwittlngly) laid ground for your more based successors to build on.
    • ML.png Marxism–Leninism - You were always yapping about how I'm the bad guy, but at the same time your later counterparts enforced Soviet Imperialism in Eastern Europe to crack down on reformist factions in case they succeed...I'm actually quite impressed. "Socialism In One Country" my ass.
    • Trot.png Trotskyism - "Permanent revolution", you say? Depends on what you mean. If you mean invading other countries then maybe it might be good...
    • Mao.png Maoism - You always talk about how you hate me, and say the third-world needs to be free from colonialism, but at the very least you rightfully re-took your clay from reactionary Tibetans to re-establish the borders of your former empire. You also work with Kissinger and Nixon, so that's good too.
    • Dengf.png Dengism - People like to say you’re me but you only have some petty border disputes with India and in the South China Sea to claim that we are the same. Sure the BRI is a cool idea but it is too disorganized and why do you write off the debts of developing nations? Some say you end up making developing nations stronger. But most of you kinda "hate me anyways nowadays under Xi". Thanks for siding with me in past conflicts though and what you did in Vietnam was based.
    • Posadist.png Posadism - Nuclear holocaust is a controversial topic in our circle. With that, we can instantly win and take over the entire world, without wasting our soldiers and military gear, but on the other hand - nuked places will be unusable for entire decades, and there will be no survivors from the enemy side (how we repopulate it, if no foreign female trophies left + where we get new cheap labor sources)?
    • Baath.png Ba'athism - Claims to oppose me, but then Hafez al-Assad.png one proceeds to invade and occupy Lebanon while Hussein.png the other proceeds to invade and occupy Kuwait. Curious.
    • Fabian.png Fabian Socialism and ClementAttlee.png Attlee Socialism - You had such promise, but in the end it almost all went out with a whimper.
    • Jack.png Jacobinism - Pretty much proto-Lenin, you opposed expansion and colonialism while going to spread your ideas around Europe, and later gave way to Bonaparte.png a more based successor.
    • File:Republicanismpix.png Republicanism - I won't forgive you for overthrowing monarchs but the USA France Banana Republic and Soviet Russia were based.

    Uncivilized Savages

    • Neighborstan.png Neighborstan - PREPARE TO BE CONQUERED, SCUM!!!
    • AnInde.png Independence Anarchism - You are of my clay, stop complaining!
    • Antiimp.png Anti-Imperialists - My worst enemies. They always rant about "Anti-Imperialism", which is one of the most disgusting abominations to exist. One day, I will unleash my true power and exact my revenge against you!!
    • Guevara.png Guevarism - Basically Maoism without its good qualities. Yuck
    • Globnat.png Alter-Globalism - Wants to make the entire planet one anti-empire. LITERALLY EVIL!
    • Feud.png Feudalism - Okay, seriously? I despise the idea of lots of tiny states to conquer easily. That is the literal opposite of an empire.
    • Commie.png Communists - You guys keep writing books demonizing me! I especially hated Lenin's book. At least some of your children Dengf.pngBrezhnev.pngJosephStalin.pngKhrusch.pngTrot.png are based.
    • Native.png Indigenism - They're savages! Savages! Barely even human, Savages! Savages! Drive them from our shore, They're not like you and me, Which means they must be evil, We must sound the drums of war!
    • Blacknat.png Black Nationalism - What annoying yappers! They always complain that I'm the evil slayer of civilization, but the moment they govern countries themselves everything goes to hell. Living proof that decolonization is always bad. The Zulus were quite a worthy enemy.
    • Nalib.png National Liberalism - STFU and let me do my job!
    • Absoc.png Arab Socialism - The Arabs are uncivilized barbarians who don’t deserve a federation! How does it feel being pwned by Israel over and over and over again?
    • Prog-u.png Progressivism - Why do you hate me? I’m a progressive too. I bring progress to smaller and uncivilized societies and help them modernize. Sure some innocent blood may be spilled, but it’s all worth it in the long run. Anyone who resists me is probably a reactionary.
    • Sankara.png Sankarism - Afrique Occidentale au Afrique Équatoriale ne deviendra pas indépendant! Et baise Thomas Sankara!
    • Polpot.png Pol Potism & Hochi.png Ho Chi Minh Thought - L'Indochine ne deviendra pas indépendant!! Et va te faire foutre, Khmer Rouge et Ho Chi Minh!! At least the former likes the Khmer Empire
    • Postconan.png Post-Colonial Anarchism - See? These savages know nothing of true civilization, it's better for them to live under our empire and be assimilated anyway.
    • Kemal.png Kemalism - REEEEEE!!! You did not just end my ambitions to colonize Turkey by breaking it apart, but you also ended the Ottoman Empire! You also entered a treaty to resist my expansionist influence to invade the Balkans! I HATE YOU!!!!!
    • 3princ.png Tridemism - YOU ENDED THE QING, PUSHED THE EMPIRE OF JAPAN OUT OF YOUR LAND, AND BROKE ALL OF MY TREATIES TO COLONIZE CHINA!!!!!!! But how you claim Tibet and the entirety of Mongolia to be your own legitimate territory is based.
    • Tito.png Titoism - You mother f*cker didn’t just push me out of your land but you also resisted the Soviet and Western takeover of your country!! You also created the Non-aligned Movement to resist my influence you piece of sh*t!!! I kind of like your claims in Bulgaria, Albania, and Greece. If only you actually did something there.
    • Isolation.png Isolationism Isolationist.png - You will open up and accept my demands or I will overwhelm you with sheer numbers.
    • Anticiv.png Anti-civ - Why would you rather live in a savage tribe than in my great civilization?
    • Plcn2.png Paleoconservatism - Worst form of Conservatism. I'm a Conservative too, I want to spread Western Values to the undeveloped. Sure some innocent blood may be spilled, but it’s all worth it in the long run. Anyone who resists me is probably a filthy hippie.
