Welcome to the ™ (UFLCP). Our fictional collective can be found on NationStates. Planet New Rosa is our grand and elegant capital city. It is located in the heart of the Andromeda Galaxy, the nearest galaxy to the Milky Way Galaxy. Oymyakon, Siberia (Russian/Rossiâne, Оймяко́н, Сибирь [MP3], Ojmâkón, Sibirʹ), the site of UFLCP’s Earth’s embassy, is, in PRE (Pre–Apocalypse), the coldest human settlement on the planet.

Planet New Rosa
The United Federation of Libertarian Communist Planets is, constitutionally, a puppet nation of Ṣạdiyqiym hạ•Dāṯ hạ•Bāhāʾiyṯ of Democratic Communist Federation (Spartakusland)™ (MP3). Sparkakusland, as the nation is referred to colloquially, is founder and chief executive of the private region, The Antifa Luxemburgist Communist Collective™ (MP3; ALCC™), which has its own website. ALCC, an actual left–libertarian collective, is committed to nonviolently fighting fascism and its ultra–right cousins, including nazism, nativism, xenophobia (MP3), alt–rightism, thuleanism (MP3), neo–confederalism, white identitarianism and nationalism, national Bolshevism, national syndicalism, third positionism, the neo–folkish movement (German, die neo–völkisch Bewegungen [MP3]), national anarchism, and ôðalism or odalism (MP3 and MP4).
Utilizing a Star Trek theme, UFLPC belongs to The Revolutionary Communist Alliance (constitution, map, PACT, Discord, wiki, and Twitter), its Spartacist Coalition, and The World Assembly. I was once a member of that region’s Revolutionary Assembly and its parliamentary speaker. Just as Gene Roddenbury’s science–fiction creation might have been libertarian communist in spirit from the very start, every possible need of residents on planets in the UFLCP will be satisfied. Poverty shall be rare or even nonexistent. Friendly species, arriving from planets within the federation, or even non–members, would be graciously welcomed aboard our various starships. Although the different species might have their own idiosyncratic strengths and weaknesses, a hierarchy—which could give higher status to some planets over others—shall be entirely absent.
During the pre–apocalyptic age of the planet Earth, the beloved revolutionary Marxist martyr and secular Jewish heroine Rosa Luxemburg ([German; MP3], Róża Luksemburg [Polish/Polski; MP3], Róży Luksemburg [Polish; MP3], Rōzạh bạṯ ʾĔliyyāhū [Hebrew, רוֹזַה בַּת אֱלִיָּהוּ; MP3], Rʾọsʾạ bạṯ ʾĔliyyāhū [Yiddish, ראָסאַ בֶּן אֱלִיָּהוּ; MP3], Rūzaẗ ʾib°naẗ ⫰Iy°liyā [Arabic, رُوزَة اِبْنَة إِيْلِيَا; MP3], Rūzah duẖ°tar•i ʾIl°ýās [Persian, رُوزَه دُخْتَرِ اِلْیَاس; MP3], Roza duẖtar•i Ilyos [Tajik, Роза духтари Илёс; MP3], or Red Rosa [German, rote Rosa; MP3; or Polish, rudy Rosa; MP3]) was the daughter of Eliasz (Polish; MP3) and Liny (Polish; MP3). At only 48–years old, Rosa became a secular martyr. She was assassinated by a rifle in Berlin, Germany, on January 15ᵗʰ, 1919 PRE. Just eight months nine days later, my Jewish father was born on September 24ᵗʰ, 1919 PRE.
In Red Rosa’s storied tradition of democratic libertarian communism, UFLCP is passionatedly devoted and firmly committed to the libertarian communist pentad: Marxism–Luxemburgism (MP3); the Autonomist Antifa movement (MP3) with no clear founders; the heterodox third–camp neo–Trotskyist (MP3) socialism from below of Hal Draper (1914–1990 PRE) which has, as the years have gone by, also been welcomed by other tendencies; the critical realism (MP3) of Roy Bhaskar (MP3; Hindi, राम रॉय भास्कर [MP3], Rāma Rôya Bhāskara), 1944–2014 PRE; and, finally, intersectionality (MP3) from Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw (born in 1959 PRE), a legal scholar and a professor, and Patricia Hill Collins (born in 1948 PRE). Collins was the first female African American sociologist to serve as president of the American Sociological Association (2009 PRE).
For rendering steadfast support to the long, valiant struggles of the subaltern (MP3), marginalized, or othered society of Bajor, bẹn Hẹʿrəšẹʿl has been honorably recognized as a member of the Bajoran Liberation Front (MP3):

At some time in the not–so–distant future, the world we share both with each other and with other species shall be totally wasted as dialectical payback for inhumanity. Earth’s homo sapien sapiens will alone be the culprits. There is no other. There is only us. Divisions and labels are fairy tales. What’s more, we, as people, share the same human nature with individuals inhabiting this planet and other planets throughout the infinite multiverse. Our planetary miseries will be unimaginable, and we have no one to blame but ourselves. War, climate change, earthquakes, showers of asteroids, volcanos, floods, and tsunamis will slaughter the vast majority of Earthlings. Furthermore, the heartbreaking reality of humanity’s own self–sabotage shall—before too many more cycles of dawn until dusk have passed us by—become our shared and life–transforming nemesis.
We have agency. Nevertheless, we permitted our decision–makers, the oligarchs and plutocrats, to continue down their treacherous course. As we shall all soon realize, it is too late to right the disreputable choices of years gone by. The time of reckoning is entrusted to the Guardian Angels (Arabic, مَلَائِكَة الحَارِسَة [MP3], Malā⫯yikaẗ ʾal•Ḥārisaẗ). They live, without end or beginning, in the Valley of Wonderment (Persian, وَادِیِ حَیْرَت [MP3], Vādí•i Ḥaý°rat) of the Seven Valleys (Persian, هَفْت وَادِی [MP3], Haf°t Vādí). The few survivors, tending to the source of evil, will gaze, sorrowfully, into the looking glass. Now, fellow wayfarer, bear witness to the virtual extinction which our own hands shall bring swiftly upon the high and the lowly alike. The karmic dialectic (Sanskrit, कर्म [MP3], karma, “work or action”) will sadly, but inevitably, return to us that which we all deserve:
Photographs Taken in the Immediate Aftermath of Earth’s Nuclear Apocalypse
Directly after Earth’s nuclear holocaust, the majority of the developed world, sentient creatures and physical structures alike, were evaporated or incinerated in an instant. Huge sections of Eurasia, the Americas, and Africa were thoroughly demolished. Japan, Oceania, and the Caribbean were submerged in flooding or destroyed in the blight of nuclear fallout. The catastrophic nuclear winter persisted for centuries. Numerous small pockets of people, residing in the more farflung regions of the world, somehow managed to miraculously survive deep inside caverns and tunnels. Sadly, given the absence of available resources, the very old, the very young, and the physically and intellectually disabled were among the first to perish. The heroic efforts undertaken to save their lives were generally unsuccessful. We damn humans caused this devastation in the first place.
Over an æon persising for hundreds upon hundreds of years, many communities discovered one another. Even those groups which descended from locations speaking the same languages often had difficulties communicating. The separation had simply continued too long. Anyway, given human ingenuity, that obstacle was eventually overcome. Records from the ancient pre–apocalyptic period were excavated. Some of the artifacts were largely destroyed beyond recognition, but, gratefully, a few were still reasonably intact. They were taken as rough guidelines, as the process of building a new civilization slowly began. Still, this time, capitalism and imperialism, the twin causes of the Great Apocalypse, were repudiated in favor of Rosa’s as yet untrodden libertarian communism. The rite of passage, a protracted and tangled journey, had, at long last, commenced.
We are currently, as this essay is now being written, still living in the age prior to the dawn of the apocalypse and its revolutionary aftermath. Preparations for the end of days can still, possibly, be made. Bear in mind, however, that thousands of years went by post–apocalypse (NET or New Earth Time) before first contact with extraterrestrials was ultimately made. Following the many millennia which gradually came to pass since the Great Revolution (Bajoran/Bajorai, Shai Iumnelai [MP3]), The United Federation of Libertarian Communist Planets was founded and established upon the rubble of a long–forgotten world–system:
These are a few cities on the Earth of the future:
Cities on the Earth of the Distant Future
Our anthem, The Inner Light, was composed by Jay Chattaway. It is performed by Starfleet Captain Jean–Luc Picard (MP3) on the mythical Ressikan flute (MP3). Numerous renditions of that enchanting melody, in addition to the original, are sequenced in the audio file (MP3). The Inner Light ($€£₩₹₽៛₼₸৳₪₫₮₦₲₴₭¥₱元₽฿¤), which hosts the musical composition, is also the name of, possibly, the best episode in Star Trek: The Next Generation. Picard’s mind was briefly borrowed, using the medium of advanced artificial intelligence (AI), transforming him into the receptor of a deceased extraterrestrial man, Kamin (MP3). The Frenchman Picard is ironically portrayed, with a robust English persona and a Queen’s or a King’s English accent, by the Englishman Patrick Stewart. He was born on July 13ᵗʰ, 1940 PRE, in West Yorkshire, England.
Directly below, Picard is shown, in character, as the aging Kamin, the flautist:

Twenty–four translations of Starfleet Captain Jean–Luc Picard are now listed:
The official, though not the exclusive, religion of UFLCP is The Way of the Prophets. It has been respectfully, appreciatively, and reverentially appropriated from the postcolonial and once hegemonized (MP3), or oppressed, civilization of Bajor (MP3). Bajoran (MP3) permission was, for form’s sake, officially requested and kindly provided. On the other hand, UFLCP guarantees full and unconditional religious freedom. Twenty–six renderings of The Way of the Prophets are numbered, again, according to the great Bajoran system:
Meanwhile, UFLCP’s exasperating animal is the otherworldly tribble (MP3). Indeed, that fertile beast, through its rapid–fire mating, seems to exceed even a rascally rabbit’s remarkably rapid reproductive rate. This furry creature headlined The Trouble with Tribbles episode of the original series. Starfleet Captain James Tiberius Kirk is on the far left:

Different translations of Kirk’s name are enumerated, 1–7, through the Bajoran system:
The issue of currency was, unfortunately, treated inconsistently in the Star Trek universe. In some cases, the audience was told that currency was long ago eliminated. In others, the Federation Credit was discussed as legal tender. Here is a two–sided image of the currency:

All that notwithstanding, in The United Federation of Libertarian Communist Planets, the legal tender is similarly called the United Federation Credit. As a means of monetary exchange, the United Federation Credit originated during the era of Captain Kirk. Here is a two–sided image of the United Federation Credit:

Foster. Bẹn Hẹʿrəšẹʿl joyfully serves UFLCP as its elected president. Professionally, Foster is a tenured (full) professor of sociology with primary specializations in the sociology of religion and social theory. Foster, in his personal life, is: a ventriloquist, a poet, an amateur multilingual translator, a website developer, and an online gamer. He entered communism, through the American New Left, in 1968 PRE. His father’s Jewish name was Hẹʿrəšẹʿl hạ•Lēwiy bẹn Šəmūʾēl (Hebrew and Yiddish, הֶערְשֶׁעל הַלֵוִי בֶּן שְׁמוּאֵלָה [MP3]). Tentatively, his sister’s Jewish name is Šəmūʾēlāh hạ•Lēwiy bạṯ Hẹʿrəšẹʿl (Hebrew and Yiddish, שְׁמוּאֵלָה הַלֵוִי בַּת הֶערְשֶׁעל [MP3]).
