Communism was a military, and cultural governing system on Earth in the 20th and 21st century, originating from Karl Marx, but was made known mostly by the Soviet Union by Vladmir Lenin and his "Bolshevik" Party. Communism was ultimately dissolved in 1992 in most nations of Earth from the result of the Cold War. The only other countries to survive as a Communist state following the Soviet collapse were North Korea, China, Laos, Vietnam and Cuba. There were also underground neo-communist groups remaining as far as to the mid-22nd century at the least. Neo-Communist hard-liner, Vladimir Koslov, and a neo-communist movement called the "Koslovics" fought against the United Nations during the Interplanetary War of 2160 - 2164, and ultimately lost.
