Nepal is the most recent communist country. Basically instead of taking comrade Lenin's revolutionary approach. They have taken Rosa Luxembourg peaceful method of gradually installing the idea of Marxism,following Cyprus' example.
This is truly great news, showing communism to be something that the majority would want and not just a militant band of rebels.
Nepal is the world's youngest republic, doing away with their monarchy on December the 10th 2007. Abandoning their previous absolutist monarchy, first faced by a communist movement in the early 90's.
Interestingly Nepal was the first Asian country to legalise same sex marriages and one of the first to do away with the death penalty.
