Not to be confused with Minarcho-Socialism

Monarcho-Socialism, often shortened to MonSoc, is a authoritarian left culturally variable ideology that believes that the Monarch's role is inherently a public one due to the Monarch having a parental obligation to his state. This can take many form's from absolute monarchism to a constitutional monarchy where the king as the leader of the revolution in most cases, instead preferring to have the monarch as the constitutional head of state while the socialist government does the politicking.



The first arguably Monarcho-Socialist movement is the Mladorossism, although a lot of modern-day Monarcho-Socialists see that as more NazBol than MonSoc, which advocated for a Russian Monarchy under a soviet style system, under their motto "The Tsar and the Soviets!". Although there is some evidence that Mladorossi might just have been a Soviet puppet party to catch dissenters. After this rumor came out, the group disbanded fast.


The first movement that can be almost universally seen as Monarcho-Socialist is the Euskadi Carlism which resulted in the Carlist Party becoming more and more socialist in the image of Tito. While the Carlists are still considered a positive thing by most modern-day Monarcho-Socialists, some conservative elements may still be seen as controversial.


Despite the memes, the Grenadan New Jewel Movement did not explicitly advocate for a socialist monarchy. They only kept the monarchy out of pragmatism.


While some Monarcho-Socialists still support absolute-socialist monarchies. according to this poll around 28.4%, most Monarcho-Socialists support a Socialist Government under a Constitutional Monarchy. it is estimated that most MonSocs, at least the constitutionalists, think that Mladorossi does not properly represent modern-day Monarcho-Socialist interests. While the reasons to want a monarchy are divided between stuff like patriotism (although not nationalism) and stability, religious reasons are rarely mentioned. The countries they consider most likely to turn MonSoc if there was one, are countries like Norway, the Netherlands, and Spain if Carlism regains popularity.

Important sections of the Work in Progress MonSoc manifesto "The Case for the Compatibility of Monarchism and Socialism" (not linked here due to author request, since he prefers it to be linked when it's done, although private copies can easily be gotten by DM'ing him) are the "Volkskoning", a king who may he doesn't actively promote a socialist government (perhaps due to constitutional reasons) but also doesn't actively work against it (a prime example of a Volkskoning being Haakon VII of Norway) and the 4 Rights of the People, those rights being the Right of Organisation, Right of Self-Rule, Right of Education and Right of Equality.


Wang mang

Wang Mang (Chinese: 王莽) (45 BCE[1] – 6 October 23 CE[2]), courtesy name Jujun (Chinese: 巨君; pinyin: Jùjūn), officially known as the Shijianguo Emperor (始建國天帝), was the founder and the only emperor of the short-lived Chinese Xin dynasty. He was originally an official and consort kin of the Han dynasty and later seized the throne in 9 CE. The Han dynasty was restored after his overthrow, and his rule marked the separation between the Western Han dynasty (before Xin) and Eastern Han dynasty (after Xin). Traditional Chinese historiography viewed Wang as a tyrant and usurper, while more recently, some historians have portrayed him as a visionary and selfless social reformer. During his reign, he abolished slavery and initiated a land redistribution program. Though a learned Confucian scholar who sought to implement the harmonious society he saw in the classics, his efforts ended in chaos.


Sihanouk was the Cambodian King from 1993-2004 and he implemented some of the first modern-day monarch socialist policies. In April 1955, before leaving for a summit with Asian and African states in Bandung, Indonesia, Sihanouk announced the formation of his political party, the Sangkum, and expressed interest in participating in the general elections slated to be held in September 1955. While the Sangkum was, in effect, a political party, Sihanouk argued that the Sangkum should be seen as a political "organization", and explained that he could accommodate people with differing political orientations on the sole condition that they pledged fealty to the monarchy.

Once in office, Sihanouk introduced several constitutional changes, including extending suffrage to women, adopting Khmer as the sole official language of the country, and making Cambodia a constitutional monarchy by vesting policy-making powers in the prime minister rather than the king. He viewed socialism as an ideal concept for establishing social equality and fostering national cohesion within newly independent Cambodia. In March 1956, he embarked on a national program of "Buddhist socialism", promoting socialist principles on the one hand while maintaining the kingdom's Buddhist culture on the other.


SPengler was a supporter of Socialist Monarchy and said:"Socialist monarchy—that is an idea that has slowly matured in the Faustian world and has long since reared its proper human protagonists. Authoritative socialism is by definition monarchistic. The most responsible position in this gigantic organism, in Frederick the Great’s words the role of “first servant of the state,” must not be abandoned to ambitious privateers. Let us envision a unified nation in which everyone is assigned his place according to his socialistic rank, his talent for voluntary self-discipline based on inner conviction, his organizational abilities, his work potential, consciousness, and energy, his intelligent willingness to serve the common cause. Let us plan for general work conscription, resulting in occupational guilds that will administrate and at the same time be guided by an administrative council, and not by a parliament. A fitting name for this administrative body, in a state were everyone has a job, be it army officer, civil servant, farmer, or miner, might well be “labor council.”


In a Paleoegyptianist society, the ultimate ruler is the current Pharaoh. The Pharaoh is seen as the god-on-earth, which makes this society an absolute monarchy. The economy is centrally organized and strictly controlled, with the majority of cultivated land being owned by the king, with the rest being owned by wealthy land owners and tempals. All property was coordinated by the state, in a way that some have compared to  State Socialism. The workers are paid with grain, which in this society, can be used as currency, and taxes are paid by the head of household.

Despite the Paleoegyptianist society being very stratified, all people are equal under the law. Although it contains slaves, they can work themselves out of slavery. Some citizen, enjoy free healthcare. There's also an amazing level of gender equality for the time, although women generally end up less educated than men. On the other hand, there are all levels of punishment for criminals, usually corporal punishment and fines, but sometimes up to death. Prison sentences are rare, as feeding a prisoner in a cell without their labor is seen as unproductive.

Stylistic Notes

MonSoc is portrayed to some degree as a stereotypical king or another member of royalty, however, he is known to take a paternal role in regard to his people and vehemently defends their right to be protected from the oppressive nature of capitalism, often through his government.

MonSoc often claims he has "the divine right to destroy the bourgeoisie" in response to those who challenge his actions or views. Upon being asked about his stance on the Russian Civil War, MonSoc has claimed to have funded both sides, remarking that "both Lenin and the Tsar were based".
