Fictional Ideology
"The party would like to remind you this ideology has never existed" - Ingsoc
This article is about a fictional ideology and has no foundation in real life political movements.

"Thank you for making my life so happy. Goodbye to you all on the count of 3. Please make sure that the sacrifice of my life is not in vain."

"Hey guys! I guess that's it."

"Your life is nothing! You serve zero purpose. You should kill yourself now!"

Death Worship, also translated to Obliteration of the Self, is an off-compass authoritarian ideology which is the doctrine of the super-state of Eastasia from 1984.

Not much is actually known about their beliefs besides from that like Ingsoc is the corruption of European Socialism for the benefit of state dominance and Neo-Bolshevism is the corruption of Marxism for the benefit of state dominance, Death Worship is the corruption of Asian Spirituality for the benefit of the state. Specifically the principle of Self-Sacrifice in the name of greater goals, which DW transforms into self-abuse in the name of serving the state.


Within the narrative of 1984, Death Worship is the state ideology of the super-state Eastasia. Little is known in the novel besides that it is "barely distinguishable" from the other two state ideologies in the world of 1984.


Like Ingsoc and Neo-Bolshevism, Death Worship is defined by a pyramidal structure, worship of a semi-divine leader, and an economy geared towards continuous warfare.

Due to its name, some readers have theorized that Obliteration of the Self may be related to nirodha, one of the Four Noble Truths in Buddhism, which states that dukkha (suffering) can be stopped or suppressed by letting go of taṇhā (desires) and trimming down/suppressing the the ego. Obliteration of the Self corrupts this idea by obliterating the ego completely, i.e. ego death, to force the people to comply with the state as one collective unit. Likewise, death is commemorated in Buddhism as relief from suffering of the current life and rebirth into the next, which may have inspired the name "Death Worship".

It is also theorized that Death Worship involves a perversion of būshido, a Japanese moral code that values honour above life.

Personality and Behaviour

Like IngSoc, Death Worship is a malevolent and power-hungry individual seeking to exert his will across everything in existence. Death Worship generally acts without showing much emotion and has a cold and clinical manner of speaking. The only exceptions are when he is talking about dying in war for the interests of the state.

DW is usually portrayed to be suicidal, but this does not have to be the case, especially since military death would be more useful for a totalitarian state.

Like Ingsoc, Death Worship is also the essence of totalitarianism, though Ingsoc has better brand recognition.

Death Worship's character is often portrayed as an Asian with slanted eyes and a rice hat.

How to Draw

Flag of Death Worship

The design for Death Worship is based on the CJK character for "death": "", an ideogrammic compound formed from combining 歺 (human remains) and 人 (a mourning person).

  1. Draw a ball,
  2. Fill in with light spring bud,
  3. Draw the death symbol in black,
  4. Draw in the eyes. You can make them slanted if you want.
  5. (Optional) Add an Asian conical hat.

You're done!
