    Finnish Socialist Workers' Republicball

    Finnish Socialist Workers' Republicball or Red Finlandball is historical countryball created during the Finnish Civil War.

    History[edit | edit source]

    Red Finlandball was an attempt to establish Socialism-icon.png a socialist nation, based on the legacy of Scandinavian-Finnish culture, socialist ideas originating from Central Europe and Finnish nationalism, including plans to expand the Finnish territory. The political visions included principles of Democracy-icon.png democracy, but as Red Finland was primarily the formation of revolution and civil war, the acts of violence and warfare were emphasized in the policy.

    After the start of the Finnish Civil War, on January 28, 1918, Kullervo Manner was appointed chairman of the People's Delegation, the Red Government. On April 10 of the same year, the Reds reformed their entire administration and Manner was appointed leader of the Red Finland and the Supreme Commander of the Red Guard under the authority of the dictator.

    The warfare between the Reds and Finland-icon.png Whites took major attention and energy of the Red leadership, and the situation wasn't alleviated by the loss of many strategically important sites, such as Tampereball, to the Whites. Therefore, the formation of the local Red civil administration remained unfinished and waited for the result of the Civil War. The top and middle-rank civil servants of the pre-civil war administration refused to co-operate with the Reds, and new leadership had to be chosen and trained from the lower rank servants.

    The Finnish Civil War ended with the German Empire-icon.png German invasion of Finland-icon.png Finlandball and the consequent defeat of the Finnish Red Guards and FSWR on 5 May 1918. After the war, the initially powerful and well-organized Finnish Social Democracy-icon.png Social Democrats, born and bred in the relatively free and nationalistic social atmosphere, within the Kalmar Union-icon.png Scandinavian and Russia-icon.png Russian culture, and affected primarily by socialist ideas of German Empire-icon.png Germanyball, Austria-icon.png Austriaball and Czechoslovakia-icon.png Czechoslovakiaball (pre-World War I Austria-Hungary-icon.png Austria-Hungaryball), were split in two. The moderate socialists continued their pre-1918 political culture, adhered to the society and political system of Finland-icon.png Finlandball, while the far-left faction formed the Communism-icon.png Communist Party of Finland in August 1918 in Moscow-icon.png Moscowball, with the main leaders living in exile in Russia-icon.png Russiaball and a marked part of the common supporters living in Finland-icon.png Finlandball.

    Red Finland never gained a true status and form of state and Republic-icon.png republic as the Reds lost the Civil War on 5 May 1918.
