Great Ideological Conflict
The Great Ideological Conflict was a conflict consisting of various small conflicts between the opposing ideologies of the left and the right wings.
The Sandum-ICA Conflict opened up the Great Ideological Conflict. It consisted of a flame-war and dispute between the Intermicronational Conservative Alliance (ICA), an anti-Communist and Conservative organisation, and the People's Democratic Republic of Sandus, a Communist nation. It began with the founding of the ICA on 18 May 2010 with a platform that meant to "fight Socialism and Communism". On 27 May the Citizens' Communist Party of Sandus responded and said it would wage "ideological warfare" against Secundomia, Wyvern, and New Europe among others as that is what the ICA had done against the DPRS, as the Chairman of the Revolutionary Council explained. The ICA took this as an attack on their membership, as the Secundomian Conservative Party and Conservative-Liberal Party were both ICA members. The ICA assumed that Sandus was attacking certain states because they had ICA political parties, though Sandus claimed that this was false, the opinion on this part is different on both sides. The leader of the New European Leftist Party contacted the Chairman and they both swore to political cooperation. Eventually, however this fight ended because Bradley of Dullahan, the leader of the ICA, gave up his position, as described by him that he couldn't handle the tress from the media the constant attacks from both the Wyvern government and Sandus, and abdicated as leader. The position of Secretary-General passed to Parker I. Bradley, however, still offered to help Parker where needed. Parker I altered the stance of the ICA to a less aggressive one in order to prevent this kind of conflicts from happening again. Parker later reversed his opinions on communism and became a leader of the Worker's Party of Secundomia in 2015.
The king of Eleytheria wrote and published a controversial document in the May of 2010. The document analyzed communism. It incited the reactions of many people, due to its bias against communism. Further, the King was accused of being a sockpuppet of banned micronationalist Mark Dresner (who himself was a pseudonym of Sebastian Linden). The King was banned from MicroWiki but had his ban reversed after protest. Support for the King's innocence often broke along ideological lines. Eventually Linden admitted the King was a fabricated persona.
Erusia was a fictional communist micronation closely tied to Sandus. All the internal workings of the country were fabricated by Robert Lethler. At the time of the Great Ideological Conflict, most nations in the community believed Lethler's claims. Reports of internal ideological disputes in Erusia had a significant intermicronational impact on the course of the conflict.
When Lethler claimed Erusian officials arrested members of the ICA, at that time - the ICA was alleged to not be registered with the Central People's Government of Erusia. The Erusian-ICA Crisis soon arose with supporters of both sides growing. The Erusian-ICA Crisis was caused by bad communication and the ICA not being aware of the rule to registration, this also ended after a talk between Bradley and the Premier of Erusia. The Lethlergate scandal, however, later revealed the arrest of ICA members to be entirely simulated and fictional: the members subject to arrest never existed in the first place.
The Kingdom of Istoria declared war on Erusia in June 2010. The king stated his reasons as, "a), I'm anti-communist, & b), I really, really need money." Several micronations, including Petorio, have heavily condemned Istoria's actions, and Istoria's international relations have since declined. Erusia does not recognize the war. The ICA was not involved in this conflict and ICA Secretary-General Parker I condemned the conflict on behalf of Secundomia and Sterling.

Following the election of the Democratic Party of Erusia to power in Erusia's June Elections, it came to light that some members of the opposition party, the National Unity Party, may authorize Operation Luxemburg. This Operation Luxemburg, legalized by the Proletarian Protection Act 2009, authorized the People's National Liberation Army from capturing and taking authority from the Central People's Government and establishing a provisional government over the course of no more than three months. Over the days following the election, the Operation was authorized by still unknown members of the National Unity Party and used against the elected Democratic Government. It is generally believed that Robert Lethler, who sided with the Democratic Government in the civil war, is the cause for the authorization of Operation Luxemburg but such belief is untrue due to the fact that Robert Lethler is opposed to the People's National Liberation Army. Robert Lethler has sense faced priority on the PNLA's most wanted and has been issued warrants for his arrest. Other members of the National Unity Party have sided with the elected government and the judicial system of Erusia, generally National Unity Party controlled, has found the Operation to be illegal. The elected prime minister Katrina Walters, too, has stated she will oppose the Operation and has since plunged the nation into civil war.
