    Separatism, also commonly known as Secessionism, is a form of Nation.png Nationalism that seeks to establish a nation, country, sovereign state, or government that is separate from an already existing nation and exists to serve as the nation, country, government or sovereign state of a specific group. It is an incredibly broad ideology that believes that minority groups in a society are at risk of losing identity. Groups such as linguistic, ethnic, cultural, religious, tribal, racial, ethnolinguistic, gender, and even political groups concentrated in an area that is controlled by an 'oppressive' nation, whose governance or majority populace is not belonging to the minority group of the area, should be separated, the land containing the minority should be able to have their own nation. This is the principle of self-determination that Separatism vehemently supports.


    Separatism has, in theory, existed for as long as civilization. Independence movements and separatist revolts have been around since the dawn of humanity. The most notable separatist movement was the American Nationalism.png American Revolution from 1775-1783 as it marked the first time a European colony successfully separated from it's master, starting the Age of Revolution.

    Two decades before the American Nationalism.png American Revolution started, another somewhat successful separatist movement happened in 1755 in the form of the Cball-Corsica.png Corsican Republic, which declared independence from the Republic of Genoa. It lasted until 1769 when Cball-France.png France invaded and annexed it.

    In 1860, South Carolina declared indepedence from the Cball-US.png United States. Several other states did the same in 1861. These separatists formed the Cball-CSA.png Confederate States of America. This large separatist attempt in North America was crushed a few years later in 1865.

    From 1917-1922, in the aftermath of World War I, many separatist movements and revolutions happened across Europe. Some of these included Cball-Finland.png Finland, Polandball.png Poland, Cball-Estonia.png Estonia, Cball-Latvia.png Latvia, Cball-Lithuania.png Lithuania (all separated from Cball-Russia.png Russia), Cball-Yugoslavia-old.png Yugoslavia (separated from Cball-AustriaHungary.png Austria-Hungary), Cball-Bavaria.png Bavaria (separated from Cball-Germany.png Germany but rejoined), and many others. A lot of these had their roots in Ethnonat.png Ethnic Nationalism, Cultural Nationalism.png Cultural Nationalism, and Soc.png Socialism.

    Simultaniously, from 1917 to 1918, Cball-UkrainianPR.png Ukraine People's Republic, Cball-Belarus-old.png Belarus People's Republic, Cball-CrimeanTatar.png Crimea, Cball-Kazakhstan.png Cball-Uzbekistan.png Central Asian nations Cball-Kyrgyzstan.png and Cball-Georgia.png Cball-Azerbaijan.png Cball-Armenia.png Caucasian nations have proclaimed their independence from Cball-Russia.png Russian Empire as well, but their attempts were crushed by Orthlen.png Russian SFSR, forming the ML.png Soviet Union in 1922.

    In 1991, the Soviet Union collapsed. This was do to Nation.png Nationalism and Separatism. In the aftermath of the collapse, many new countries separated and became independent. But, separatists tried to separate from the newly created countries, causing chaos in regions like Cball-Abkhazia.png Abkhazia and Cball-SouthOssetia.png South Ossetia in Cball-Georgia.png Georgia, Cball-Artsakh.png Nagorno-Karabakh in Cball-Azerbaijan.png Azerbaijan, Cball-Transnistria.png Transnistria and Gagauzia in Cball-Moldova.png Moldova, Cball-Chechnya.png Chechnya and Cball-Dagestan.png Dagestan in Cball-Russia.png Russia for many years to come.

    In 2014, Separatism caused a war in Cball-Ukraine.png Ukraine. It started with the annexation of Crimea by Russia, but then spread to the Donbass region with the "proclamation" of the so-called Cball-Donetsk.png Donetsk and Cball-Lugansk.png Luhansk "People's Republics". There were attempts to create similar things in Kharkiv and Odesa, but they were crushed. Despite countless evidence of Russian military fighting on the separatist side, Putin.png Russian officials deny their involvement in the war until a full-scale invasion occurred in 2022 following Russian recognition of both Regions. Currently apart from the Cball-Donetsk.png Donetsk and Cball-Lugansk.png Luhansk People's Republics parts of Kherson Zaporizhian oblasts were formally absorbed into Russia after a rigged referendum.

    In 2017 and 2018, the 'Unite the Right Rally' and 'Unite the Right Rally 2' occurred. These were mainly by Whitesup.png White Nationalists and Neo-Nazis, but also included Neoconfed.png Neo-Confederate separatists.

    Cball-EU.png Euroscepticism Euroscept.png

    The main drivers of Euroscepticism have been beliefs that integration undermines national sovereignty and the nation state,that the EU is elitist and lacks democratic legitimacy and transparency, that it is too bureaucratic and wasteful, that it encourages high levels of immigration, or perceptions that it is a neoliberal organisation serving the big business elite at the expense of the working class, being responsible for austerity and driving privatization.

    Personality and Behavior

    Separatism is portrayed as patriotic and overzealous, but towards the nation that they believe should separate, not the nation that currently controls his land. They are quick to criticize anyone who suggests that their land is a part of another nation or that they citizens are citizens of a 'foreign' country. For example, they display a behavior akin to what Cball-Quebec.png Québécois nationalists would do if someone called them Cball-Canada.png Canadian, or what a Cball-Catalonia-Estelada.png Catalan nationalist would do if someone called them Cball-Spain.png Spanish, or if someone suggested that Cball-Quebec.png Québec was simply a province of Cball-Canada.png Canada or if someone called Cball-Catalonia.png Catalonia a region of Cball-Spain.png Spain. Or even if someone said Cball-Kosovo.png Kosovo is Cball-Serbia.png Serbia or said that Cball-Kosovo.png Kosovars are Cball-Serbia.png Serbian. Separatism would become extremely aggravated in such scenarios.

    Other than that, they get along with ideologies that want to form separate nations for their groups. This ideology often discusses self-determination and how it is a human right.

    • Nation.png Nationalism - Stop trying to assimilate minorities and make sure groups stay separate! We need every group to be of utmost importance to their own nation, but not trample over others so they can have their own self-determination too.
    • World.png Globalism - Stop it with all that unity stuff, nations should be separating and getting independence! Although... sometimes we might need economic and military help across the world to do it.
    • Cosmo.png Cosmopolitanism - You're right in some ways, we should have no group ruling over other minorities. And we should acknowledge each nationality's equal right to have their own nation. But Pan-Nationalism is the worst! I will respect other nationalities from afar, not meld with them!
    • Progress.png Progressivism - Well, supporting minority groups is based, but the only right that matters is their right to form their nation and have independence! Other than that, don't tell our new independent nations how to behave, they don't need to be progressive, they'll use self-determination to forge their own path.
    • Trad.png Traditionalism - Protecting my peoples traditions are a good idea, but why can we not work with other independence activists of other lands if they support our fight for self-determination?
    • 3princ.png Tridemism - Well I do like how you want officially separated from the evil Dengist state, but you also occupied the land of the Taiwanese and want to form "One Big China", and that's... hella cringe.
    • Radfem.png Radical Feminism & MGTOW.png MGTOW - I mean, I don't know about full on gender separatism but whatever floats your boat, I guess?
    • Anin.png Anarcho-Individualism - The fight for self-determination from the oppressive majority and against assimilating for being different is based. But you might need to sacrifice some of your personal autonomy in order to unite with like-minded individuals to truly be free.
    • Acol.png Anarcho-Collectivism - You see how the power of the collective can get things done when people work together, but you might also force various diverse peoples to integrate or assimilate for furthering the good of the collective rather than for minority groups. Which goes against true self-determination of diverse peoples.
    • RelNat.png Religious Nationalism - Both our liberator and our oppressor, forcing faith on other diverse peoples beliefs is wrong. But fighting to protect our faith from said religious fanatics isn't.
    • Hfash.png Homofascism - Your supporting of imperialism and racism against minorities is a huge red flag. But a gay-ethnostate was a pretty based idea.
    • Pan-Nationalism.png Pan-Nationalism - Trying to unite nations and countries into less rather than separating them into more is absolutely despicable. Although you might be needed to ensure various diverse minority groups get their self-determination from an oppressive outsider, but still.
    • European Federalism.png European Federalism - My British, French and Greek variants really hate you however the scotish variants within Britain see you as a good alternative after they have separated from the UK, so I am really really confused.
    • Fed.png Federalism - Autonomy? How about independence already? At least you allow some liberty to the minority groups.


    • Intercult.png Interculturalism - I will not assimilate!
    • Anat.png Anationalism - C'mon, why do you gotta give anarchists a bad name? You are THE WORST of the anarchists.
    • Irridentism.png Irredentism - One of my arch-nemesis, tries to reverse my progress of getting people independence! Stop conquering those poor minorities, they deserve their homeland too!
    • Imp.png Imperialism - Extremely glad that you're era of rule is over, this should never even be thought of! Subjugating those poor minorities is the opposite of giving them freedom to have their own nation! What I helped you get into power NOOOOOOOOOO!!!
    • Jingoism.png Jingoism - Now this is just sick, you've gotta respect people's right to self-determination, to each nation, their own!
    • Ultranat.png Ultranationalism - Wanting independence, being proud of your nation and sharing its identity is good nationalism, but you want your national group to trample over all the others, not cool, the worst nationalism.
    • Dengf.png Dengism - You are everything that I despise. Your Red-White terror in Tibet, Xinjiang, Inner Mongolia, Manchuria, and NK will end!
    • World Federalism2.png World Federalism - This is what I fight against! One world government is a literal hell on earth.
    • Illum.png Illuminatism - This is where a one world government inevitably leads us!
    • Hmind.png Hive-Mind Collectivism - I thought World Federalism2.png He was my greatest fear... Guess I was wrong. Now excuse me while I have a panic attack.
    • Tito.png Titoism - Balkanization go brrrrr.
    • Zio.png Zionism - One day, I'll kick your fucking ass out of Palestine, so Palestinians will live in peace!
    • Civnat.png Civic Nationalism - The type of country that you want is idiocy, a country that deteriorates the identities of all people who live there, a country that needs to be torn apart, a country that I would never want to be part of. It's useless that you look at me like that, you don't scare me, libtard. You, at this moment, look like Ultranat.png him to me, cuck. And stop calling me a traitor, moron!
    • Ottoman.png Neo-Ottomanism, Grey-Wolves-icon-pcb.png Turkish Idealism and Kemal.png Kemalism - #FreeKurdistan!
