The Revolutionary Marxist Movement of Philadelphia (RMMP) is the name of the group in control of the People's Revolutionary Republic, a nation whose borders overlap with several other independent republics and city-states. The party and nation are officially run by an enigmatic leader known as 'Comrade Shane', although the day to day affairs of the nation are in reality handled by the 'Revolutionary Council of the RMMP', a shadowy group of unknown makeup appointed by Comrade Shane.

History of the RMMP Edit
The RMMP was founded on the 31st of December in 2004 when the Revolutionary Marxist Collective (RMC) and American People's Revolutionary Party (APRP) merged to form the largest Marxist oriented group in Philadelphia. Although the RMC and APRP did not fully trust each other, the deteriorating political situation in Philadelphia called for a single, united leftist front to be formed, and both groups recognized this. The original RMMP was considered a hard line Leninist party and it was believed would be very strong and stable, but initial infighting between leaders of the RMMP central committee severely limited the movements operational capabilities. To quell the unrest within the leadership the only dual RMC-APRP member, known as Comrade Shane, was chosen as the first Chairman of the RMMP.
Apart from vague details, little was known about Comrade Shane's past, even by longtime associates. The fact that he had many contacts in the police force led some to believe that he was a police informant, but his constant use of police contacts and information for both the RMC and APRP kept him in the good graces of most of the top leaders of both parties.
Comrade Shane's appointment to the Chairmanship finally allowed the RMMP membership to focus on other issues; Comrade Shane was a loyal member of both the RMC and APRP so neither side felt threatened by his leadership. In hindsight, their absolute trust in Comrade Shane was a major mistake for the RMMP Central Committee members. Ignoring his police background was perhaps their biggest mistake of all; most of the RMMPCC members were excommunicated by the party as they were being arrested and charged with major crimes. By the time the remaining RMMPCC members realized what was happening, it was far too late. On the 6 month anniversary of the founding of the RMMP Comrade Shane announced the parties split from Leninism and the liquidation of the RMMPCC. In the reorganization of the party structure Comrade Shane was named "Commander in Chief of the Revolution" and later simply "Revolutionary Leader". There was no more CC to regulate his actions; Shane was now in full control of the RMMP.
Throughout the rest of 2005 the RMMP underwent a nearly complete transformation from a political party to a civilian militia. Instead of picketing at union strikes, the new RMMP paid uncooperative management a midnight visit in order to sway their opinions. Instead of banners and signs, RMMP members carried automatic weapons to demonstrations. With the US economy collapsing and the city bankrupt, the local government could do nothing to stop the near daily RMMP marches on Market street. The under funded police department refused to act against the RMMP as most of them were RMMP members themselves due to Comrade Shane having influence in the police force and thanks to RMMP militias assisting their fight against crime for free.
By the time the traditional national powers collapsed and the Cybernations began to appear in early 2006, the RMMP was already in control of Philadelphia's infrastructure. RMMP leadership declared the People's Republic of Philadelphia in February 2006, removing the Mayor and other American authorities from power.
After the PR of Philadelphia was declared, the former RMMPCC members were released from prison and invited to take up minor leadership positions in the republic and its outlaying territories. All but 2 fled the People's Revolutionary Republic, citing the fact that Comrade Shane had stolen the RMMP from its founders. Comrade Shane, whose face was at the time unknown to the majority of the people under his control, issued a statement claiming the arrests of the RMMPCC were done for the good of the movement as a whole. The public accepted this, unwilling to see the city collapse and recognizing the advances the RMMP had already made, and the issue of the illegitimacy of the RMMP leadership was dropped.
The nation was later renamed 'The People's Revolutionary Republic' once the RMMP controlled more than just Philadelphia.
International Press Edit
The international voice of the RMMP and PRR was formerly the Philadelphian Workers' Press (PWP), but is currently the Janissary Corps Journal (JCJ). The PWP once operated independent of the government and was sponsored by an outside source, a fact which the RMMP trumpeted loudly as it was among the most free presses in the world. Following the August 27th Coup, an event that began with the bombing of the PWP headquarters, the government took control of the PWP and all other media outlets, domestic and international. Until its disbandment under order from the Janissary Corps on March 5, 2007 the PWP remained under close government watch and was no longer hailed as a symbol of free press. Following the disbandment of the PWP due to reported crimes against the government committed by PWP reporters the JCJ was founded by the Janissaries.
The Janissary Corps Journal has not released any International press briefings since May 2007 due to changes in the international policies of the RMMP.
August 27th Coup Edit
August 27, 2006 was to be Comrade Shane's first birthday celebration as leader of the nation, however during a press conference rouge military elements launched a Coup d'etat, seemingly killing Comrade Shane and almost a dozen government ministers. After several weeks of riots and isolation from the international community the new RMMP, lead by General Osman Mehmed, commander of the 'Capitol City Defense Force' unit of the Revolutionary Border Guard, solidified its control over most of the nation by seeking international recognition, which it received from ideological enemies of the RMMP.
An eventual breakdown of the new governments power resulting from mass displeasure at the overthrow of the popular former government, organized partisan forces, and widespread mutiny in the military resulted in the removal of the new government by loyalist forces within 2 months. On October 28 Gen. Mehmed was killed in a raid on the rural camp to which he had fled following the collapse of the garrison of Philadelphia. Within weeks Comrade Shane came out of hiding and resumed control over the party and nation. It was later revealed that a body double had been killed in place of the security conscious Comrade Shane.
The "German Incident" Edit
On February 3, 2007 the PRR sent an envoy to East Germany to establish an embassy while East Germany sent an ambassadorial staff to the PRR with the same intent. During the negotiation process the East German leader, President Norris, demanded an audience with Comrade Shane. The notoriously security conscious Revolutionary Leader put forth the terms of the meeting, which were rejected hands down by an infuriated President Norris, who demanded the Revolutionary Leader meet with him at his quarters in East Germany. His terms were rejected, which he took as a personal insult.
In retaliation for the perceived insult, the East German secret police (Stasi) detained the RMMP ambassador to East Germany and burned the PRR embassy in Berlin to the ground, the embassy staff barely escaping. The embassy staff crossed the East German border into PRR-friendly Poland while the Revolutionary Council and President Norris exchanged terms via satellite uplink. Upon confirmation of the safety of the embassy staff, the RMMP rescinded the East German embassy in Philadelphia and escorted its staff to their aircraft, with the exception of the head ambassador who was detained by the RMMPSS.
Still attempting to end the conflict diplomatically, the Revolutionary Council ordered the German aircraft, DDR-114, be escorted outside the coverage of the PRRs anti-air defenses by PAF fighters. Due to further threats by the Norris regime, however, the fighters were recalled well inside PRR airspace and DDR-114 was subsequently shot down by what appeared to be Canadian separatists, who for several months had been causing problems in the northern PRR over border disputes. Outraged at the loss of the embassy staff and placing the blame squarely on the RMMP Norris ordered his air force into PRR airspace.
The Revolutionary Council placed the PAF on alert and scrambled fighters to the last known location of DDR-114, while East German fighters seemingly turned back over the North Pole. Soon after it was confirmed that DDR-114 was downed by the Canadians a radio transmission from East Germany was detected:
"An armed garrison has been dispatched to your camp. Your job will be to provide them with your own uniforms and burn or otherwise destroy all their insignia and clothing that could point to our involvement in this. Stand by and have my men ready for when the attack orders are given.
Good job on shooting down the target. The lives of our ambassadors were only the price of our safety from the RMMP threat."
The transmission alerted the RMMP to the fact that East Germany had planned an attack from the beginning. With the international community already rallying behind the PRR, all military forces were placed at DEFCON 2 and a massive bombing campaign against Canadian guerrilla camps took place. By the morning of February 4 the rebels were totally eliminated, along with several East German 'peace keepers' as the Norris regime called them. In retaliation for the RMMP attack on the Separatists Norris ordered the RMMP ambassador executed. The RMMP in turn interrogated the East German ambassador and concluded that his mission was to destabilize the government in Philadelphia. The ambassador was sentenced to an indefinite term in one of the PRRs labor camps.
In retaliation for the conflict and the murder of the PRR ambassador, the RMMP declared President Norris 'persona non grata' and 'an enemy of the people' in the PRR and urged its allies to take similar actions. Along with action against Norris, the RMMP declared a list of restrictions against East Germany as a whole:
Travel - Travel to and from East Germany is restricted for all citizens of the PRR. Citizens found with East German stamps on their passports will be detained by the RMMPSS. East German citizens and anyone carrying East German passports, or anyone with an East German stamp on their passport will be denied entrance into the PRR.
Trade - All trade between the PRR and East Germany is suspended. This includes East German products and materials purchased from 3rd parties. The PRR will not do business with any foreign power with the intent to forward PRR products and materials to East Germany.
Relations - The PRR will not participate in any form of relations with East Germany with the exception of talks for the purpose of maintaining international peace. The PRR will not enter into any pact/treaty in which East Germany has a controlling stake, nor will East Germany be permitted to enter into any pact/treaty in which the PRR has a controlling stake.
Civil Communication - All communication with East Germany, be it by post, telecommunication, radio communication or any other form of physical or electronic communication is forbidden in the PRR. Furthermore, East German radio and television frequencies have been scrambled in the PRR. East German web addresses (.ddr) have been blocked from all Internet connections in the PRR. All East German press, current or otherwise, is now considered restricted literature in the PRR.
As of 2009, with the death of President Norris in a hunting accident, it is unknown if the restrictions against East Germany still stand as the borders of the PRR have been closed for several years now and the RMMP has released no news concerning the matter.
Janissary Corps Edit
Tha Janissary (Yeni-Ceri) Corps were founded in early March, 2007 in response to a perceived large number of reactionary elements in the People's Revolutionary Republic.
Following a series of terrorist attacks around the nation which inevitably it was discovered were perpetrated by lower echelon RMMP officials, including several car bombs which destroyed 2 RAF barracks in the western PRR, killing over 1,200 people, and an attempt on the life of the Revolutionary Council which caused a block in downtown Philadelphia to collapse and the nation to enter a State of Emergency for several days the party decided that a new security force needed to be formed to police not just the nation, but the party itself.
Based upon the historical Janissaries of the Ottoman Empire the Janissary Corps are the highest ranked body of military unit in the PRR, answering directly, and only to the Revolutionary Leader. The exact capabilities and specifications of the Corps are unknown, however is it estimated that they are between 1,000 and 5,000 strong in number. Recruited mostly from the most elite troops in the nation, it is believed that the Janissaries could operate as an elite combat unit, although most of their known duties involve police-like actions.
Diplomatic Ties Edit
The PRR is an active member of The Order of Light.
The PRR is a member of The Order of Light (TOOL)
Following the closure of the nations borders the PRR has recalled its ambassadors from all nations and ejected all foreign ambassadorial staff from the nation. It is unknown whether or not the PRR is allied to, or has any ties whatsoever to, any other nation.
Offical Visits to the PRR
Before the border closure the following rules stood for official visits to the PRP:
"Envoys may now be sent to the PRR to visit with RMMP officials (possibly including Comrade Shane, in the case of a foreign Head of State) and to see our beautiful nation. Visiting envoys will be personally guided around Philadelphia and select areas across the PRR by veteran RMMP diplomats, who will teach visitors about the rich history of the nation and party. Envoys may also request personal tours of specific places and facilities, including (but not limited to) industrial, economic and military sites along with various government, party, natural and historical sites. The Janissary Corps along with Revolutionary Armed Forces of the Republic (RAFP) and Revolutionary Border Guard (RBG) will provide security specialists and armed escorts for all envoys. Security personnel are also allowed to accompany envoys to most places, although for security reasons some sites are restricted to 'unauthorized' military personnel.
Heads of State wishing to visit the PRR are welcome to bring their families along, while other official visitors are asked to bring only their spouse, if desired. There are case by case restrictions on these policies.
All expenses incurred by official visitors will be paid by the RMMP, excluding transportation to the PRR and the expenses of any private security personnel."
Establishing an embassy in the PRR
The International Assembly Building in downtown Philadelphia was formerly to foreign embassies, however since the 2007 border closure and subsequent isolation of the PRR the 39-story building has reportedly gone disused.

Recent History Edit
Since the FAN conflict, the RMMP has ceased contact with all foreign governments with the exception of its trading partners and members of The Order of Light, and even than only discusses trade issues. The new isolationist stance was the result of several political conflicts with other major nations. Many new advancements and events have taken place, including the establishment of several major Universities and a major war against capitalist rebels which resulted in several small scale nuclear detonations near Philadelphia, killing an estimated 100,000 people.
Since the war the leaders of the RMMP, including Comrade Shane and the Revolutionary Council, have not made any public appearances, only speaking to the nation through prerecorded radio and television broadcasts.
