    Populism is a non-quadrant ball used to represent generic populism, without left or right connotations.

    It focuses on appealing to a large amount of people and their sensibilities, believing that what the masses want must be what the masses get. This will lead to society's prosperity and the well-being of all being raised as the people guide themselves.

    It can take on many forms, as its only requirement is that it represents a movement by the people for the people. This causes it to have no real political affiliation. Though often populism is associated with democracies due to its reliance on popular support.


    Populism has been an ever-present force throughout history. Whenever the masses of a nation couldn't fulfil their needs, or otherwise got upset with the current state of affairs they rise up. Typically populism is within their movement, even if not the front and center ideology. Today we see its influence primarily in politicians and their rhetoric. Appeals to the sensibilities and morals of a large group in society, as well as the creation of programs or works demanded by large groups in society, are hallmarks of a populist politician.

    From the Grain Dole in Rome, the many Peasant Revolts in Europe, American Independence, The Rise of Napoleon, the October Revolution in Russia, and the Fall of the Berlin Wall populism has stood throughout history. Its people-driven nature ensures that as long as there are societies in need, it will proceed onwards.

    • AungSanSuuKyi.png Aung San Suu Kyi is the youngest daughter of Antifa.png Aung San, Father of the Nation of modern-day Myanmar, and Khin Kyi, and would live to become the figurehead of her country's Thar.png pro-democracy Dem.png movement against Tatmadaw.png Tatmadaw, Myanmar's Military Junta which has ruled the country since the 1960s. Aung San Suu Kyi lived and studied in Cball-UK.png the UK in the 1960s and 1970s where she met and married British historian Michael Aris in 1972, with whom she had two children.

    Coincidentally, when Aung San Suu Kyi returned to Cball-SocialistBurma.png Burma in 1988, the long-time military leader of Burma and head of the ruling party, General Burmasoc.png Ne Win, stepped down after nearly 30 years of dictatorial military rule. Mass demonstrations for democracy followed that event on 8 August 1988, which were violently suppressed in what came to be known as the 8888 Uprising. The 8888 Uprising led to Aung San Suu Kyi's rise to prominence as she addressed half a million people at a mass rally in front of the Shwedagon Pagoda in the capital, calling for the transition to Liberal Democracy.png liberal democracy. However, in September 1988, a new military junta took power.

    Aung San Suu Kyi became the General Secretary of the National League of Democracy, NLD, which she had newly formed with the help of several retired and defected army officials. Unfortunately, in 1989, she was put under house arrest by the Tatmadaw. Former Prime Minister Buddhist Socialism.png U Nu attempted initiated to form an interim government made up of opposition leaders, with the support of the Indian government under Rajiv Gandhi. However, Aung San Suu Kyi, rejected U Nu's plan as she resonated that change had to come within Burma by the Burmese people.

    In 1990, the military junta called a general election, in which the National League for Democracy (NLD) received 59% of the votes, guaranteeing NLD 80% of the parliament seats. However, the results were nullified as the military refused to hand over power to civilian rule, resulting in an international outcry and Aung San Suu Kyi was placed under house arrest at her home in Rangoon. During her time under house arrest she would achieve worldwide fame and admiration similar to other famous democracy activists such as Mandela.png Nelson Mandela, Gorb.png Mikhail Gorbachev, and Havel.png Vaclav Havel and was awarded the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought in 1990, and the Nobel Peace Prize one year later.

    Her house arrest would last for nearly two decades and finally in 2010 with the help of the Obamium.png Obama Administration, she was released and planned to run for the presidency in Myanmar's 2015 elections. The NLD won the 2015 elections, however, as the 2008 Constitution states anyone married to a person who was not a citizen of Myanmar would be barred from running for the office of president, a new office was created for Aung San Suu Kyi, the "State Counsellor" to circumvent this inconvenience set up by the military. As State Counsellor of Myanmar would Aung San Suu Kyi would free and grant amnesty to many political prisoners that had been detained under the Tatmadaw regime.

    However, the Tatmadaw had not given up on power since the 2008 Consitution referendum, and maintained a high degree of influence over Burmese politics, thus preventing any true transition to liberal democracy. Aung San Suu Kyi was forced to concede to appease the Tatmadaw which made her time as State Counselor a disappointing one for international observers and many of her past supporters who had expected her to solve Myanmar's problems and internal conflicts. Freedom of the press didn't improve under her watch and Myanmar remained a dangerous place for journalists.

    Aung San Suu Kyi became notorious for her silence and lack of effort in stopping the persecution and genocide of Muslim 2.png Rohingya people in Myanmar, carried out by the Tatmadaw and BuddNat.png Buddhist extremist monks.

    On 1 February 2021, Aung San Suu Kyi was arrested and deposed by the Myanmar military led by General Min Aung Hlaing, along with other leaders of her National League for Democracy (NLD) party, after the Myanmar military declared the November 2020 general election results fraudulent.

    Logo of Five Star Movement

    Fivestaricon.png The Five Star Movement is an Italian political party. It has been the largest political party in government since 2018. They are a big-tent populist movement, having been both labeled as Lpop.png far-left and Rpop-tinfoilhat.png far-right by various media outlets because while they are generally pro-welfare including Universal Basic Income and very environmentalist, they are also moderately Euroskeptic and anti-immigration, though it was a member of the generally Rpop-tinfoilhat.png Right-Wing Populist EU parliament group "Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy" which was led by UKUKIP.png Nigel Farage.

    Cball-Ukraine.png Ukraine Sluhanarodu.png

    Zesluhanoradu.png Servant of the People is a Ukrainian political party, which is holding the most seats in the Ukrainian parliament since 2019. It is characterized as Radcent.png radical centrist, Soclib.png social liberal and at first Libertarian.png libertarian and Liberalsoc.png liberal socialist. Overall, the party eventually settled on Moder.png Centrism, but remains populist at its core.

    SotP's former leader, Oleksandr Korniyenko said:

    We are Modnat.png patriots and even Nation.png nationalists when it comes to protecting the borders of our country. We are Humanismpix.png humanists when it comes to protecting human rights. We are Libertarian.png libertarians when we open markets for land, alcohol, amber with transparent rights for all. We are Regulationism.png statesmen when it comes to tax discipline. We are Lib.png liberals when we defend human property and economic freedom. We are Liberalsoc.png socialists when it comes to protecting and providing for pensioners, veterans, everyone who needs it.

    Some of the members have even expressed pro-Russian views, but were either expelled from the party, changed their minds or immigrated to Russia after the 2022 invasion.


    Populism is a fairly laid-back ball that, nonetheless, considers itself a champion of the people and never supports decisions that go against the wishes of the wider populace. Only really cares about something if others care about it, more of a go with the flow kind of guy.

    Obviously, says things that are very popular within the general populace, but once they're in power... well, it's a whole other story.

    The People


    • Dem.png Democracy - Similar to me, but often results in corruption that I end up having to clear out.
    • Synclib.png Big Tent Liberalism - Good direction. But you still give platform to established politicians who don't really care about the people...
    • Ochlo.png Ochlocracy - Calm down will you? Do you have any sense of respect? Also, you need to elect me to help the people rather than people helping themselves.
    • Auto.png Autocracy - Tyrant! Abuser of power! But I sometimes become you during my fight against the elite, and me having absolute power is preferable to obstructionist collective leaders.
    • Kak.png Kakistocracy - An useful idiot to manipulate.

    The Elite

    • Corp.png Corporatocracy - You don't care about the people, you only care about your profits!
    • Klep.png Kleptocracy - Same as above, you steal people's money for your own personal gain! (What do you mean I helped you get into power?)
    • Oligarchy.png Oligarchy - You are killing us! (Wait, I helped Fake populist.png you too?! Oh god what have I done...)
