The Communist Party of Burkland, officially the Communist Party of the Marxist People's Republic of Burkland, is a political party that served as the de facto ruling party of Burkland for the majority of the micronation's existence. As with Burkland itself, it is almost completely controlled by Rachel with little to no input from other members. It was formed after Burkland legalized political parties. The function of the party in Burklandi society was unclear. Burkland was technically a multi-party democracy and thus, the Communist Party could, in theory, have been voted out of office. However, in practice, the government of Burkland was ruled by the Communist Party and more specifically Rachel.
Inspired by the popular fronts of some Marxist–Leninist macronations, the Communist Party is part of the People's Democratic Front alongside the Social Democratic Party of Burkland (Democratic Socialist Party) and some independents. The People's Democratic Front was, in turn, part of the Workers' Bloc in Zealandia. The Communist Party, individually, was part of the Intermicronational Socialist Forum.
While de facto dissolved by the dissolution of Burkland, the party still technically exists. Like Burkland, it (and the People's Democratic Front) will dissolve at a set date: January 21, 2019. In 2019, the Communist Party rejected all forms of authoritarianism and nationalism (including micronationalism) and encouraged all members to join socialist organizations, trade unions, or both in their respective macronations to create genuine change rather than "costume communism".
