The Leftist Assembly is a pan-leftist region in NationStates. It was founded on 14 January 2016 as the reunification of two former regions - The Communist Region and the Democratic Socialist Union. The region is a member of the NSLeft, the largest alliance of left-wing regions in NationStates.

The region is generally government-focused, with a three-branch government system - the Cabinet (executive) led by the Secretary, the General Assembly (legislature) led by the Speaker, and the Supreme Court (judiciary).

The most recent census was held in February 2020.

History

The Leftist Assembly was founded on 14 January 2016 by British Accia, LAN, Atealia, and Cedoria (under the multi-nation held account of Leftist Assembly Founder). It was established as a merger of The Communist Region and its breakaway region, the Democratic Socialist Union, due to the desire for a reunified and revitalised leftist region. For further information on the history of The Leftist Assembly, read Cedoria's Regional History Project:

The Constitution was ratified on 19 February 2016, now celebrated annually on this day as Constitution Day, and the Code of Laws was ratified on 17 April 2016.
