West Moravia's name comes from Moravia, one of the old regions of the Czech Republic. Moravia itself derives from the Proto-Indo-European word mori, which means waters, which is significant to West Moravia's geography as it is situated very near the River Severn in the WMCA, and the River Chelt in Dean Close Province. Leninurbo comes from 'Lenin,' the first leader of the Soviet Union, and 'urbo,' the Esperanto word for city. Chernyshevskyville derives from Chernyshevsky, who was an influential Russian communist philosopher of the 19th century. Parvia's name comes from the latin word parvo, meaning small.

Government and Politics
West Moravia is a Christian Communist Republic. Christian communists hold the biblical verse Acts 4:32–35 as evidence that the first Christians lived in a communist society. Acts 4:32–35 reads: "All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had. With great power, the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. And Gods grace was so powerfully at work in them all that there were no needy persons among them. For from time to time those who owned land or houses sold them, brought the money from the sales and put it at the apostles' feet, and it was distributed to anyone who had need"
Christian communism is not merely based on the principles of the early apostles. Christian communists claim that anti-capitalist ideas are deeply rooted in the Christian faith. While capitalism had not yet formed in the time of Christ, his message was overwhelmingly against the love of money (greed) and in support of the poor. The principles of Christ are seen by Christian communists as staunchly anti-capitalist. Christ taught that the love of money was the root of many evils, by that logic it seems only natural for Christians to oppose a social system founded entirely on the love of money as Christian communists claim.

October / November 2019 Constitutional Crisis
On 30 October 2019, the Presidential Court of West Moravia (PCWM) stated in a ruling that the Conservative Alliance party had found to be breaking clause 3.2 of the Jurisprudence of West Moravia, and thus ruled that the party had three days to move their headquarters outside of Parvia Autonomous District. However, the party did not obey the ruling, and, consequently, their seats in the UNPLS were declared to have been illegally won. The Electoral Commission then decided that a by-election for the two seats would be held on 4 November, and that the Conservative Alliance would not be permitted to stand. The leader of the CA, James Carder-Geddes, made no comment. Additionally, a pact was signed between the leader of the CGDA, Benedict Braddock, and the leader of the UGP, Samuel Crawford. This pact was an agreement between the parties - the CGDA would not stand, to give the UGP the best possible chance of winning.
Since its creation, several notable people have become citizens of West Moravia. These include A Moodley and A Lindsay became the first members of the OFVZ (Order for Feminist and Veganist Zeal), the violinist, pianist and organist M. Lei (2005/6), among others.

Law and Order
The West Moravian Judicial System consists of three lower courts, the high court and the presidential court. The lower courts are used for smaller offences, the high court is used for larger offences or long-going allegations, and the presidential court is used for offences like foreign interference and offences which may have caused the government to break down in any way. The courts have never been used since they were set up shortly after the founding of West Moravia. West Moravia has a small police force of 6 and their many works are in the border control sector.
