Kúúlism (also Kuulism) is the political, social and economic ideology as advocated by Name Kúúl. The ultimate goal of Kuulism is the establishment of a helsonian - stateless, classless, and moneyless - society. The basis of Kuulism lies in the mediaeval Terminian peasantry, where the ownership of land and goods was shared between a community - or helsen.

A perfect Helsonian society, as described by Kúúl, would be made up of small helsens in which the community controlled all means of production, goods and land, and in which money, social classes and state were absent. Kúúl also advocated a system of free inter-communal trade, whereby helsens with a surplus of goods would provide for states with a defecit, however later Kuulist movements (particularly Statists such as name nameson) prescribe to the equal distribution of goods to helsens by a Supreme Helsonia - a national or subnational entity.

Kuulism is one of the main strands of far-left and Balko-Kuulist ideology on Sahar, along with Balkism.




Because of the strong focus on local community autonomy, most Kúúlist states, like the Helsonian Union had a very decentralized federal structure, and preferred to civil governments over military juntas in charge of states in their spheres of influence, preferably with some sort of electoral system which validated the single-party state. Qonklaks bucked the trend and decided to intepret Kúúl’s definition of “small, local communities” as “Qonklaks is one small supreme local community of 80 million people.”


Early Kúúlism

Name Kúúl was born to an aristocratic family in Olboros Terminia, and by the 1830s, as a student in the Terminian Far East, read early Balkist works, and developed his own ideas that were based on the situation in Terminia rather than Balkist idea of pan-Milevian liberation, and trying to expand beyond ethnic or statist boundaries.

The early writings focused on the injustices of the early industrial Terminian aristocracy, conflating it with the urbanization that industrialization caused. So, he believed in decentralization from the cities, in a system inspired by Medieval countryside subsistence farming, but moneyless and classless. This would be done by redistributing the land and dividing it in small self sufficient communities with a small government that would be in charge of redistributing surplusses between these communities and that would dwindle as this redistribution developed organically.

While literacy was still low in Terminia, his ideas were adopted by the Pashaist clergy. For the previous few centuries, the Terminian aristocracy and peasantry belonged to two different sects. Because of this, the priests of the peasant sect could organize to try to alleviate the suffering of their congregants. When people who grew up in this situation joined the army, this lead to many Kúúlist ideas being spread by word of mouth in the lower ranks of the army.

Great Ekuosian War

During the leadup to the Great Ekuosian War, Statist Kúúlism had been gaining ground among the leadership, over the more traditionally decentralized original Kúúlism. Since the Fals-Helsonian war in the 1930s, which was motivated largely by a desire to spread the revolution abroad, the Statist Kuulists had been gaining traction largely out of pragmatism: more and more it was accepted that a totally Kuulist state would be impossible until there was a worldwide revolution. The death of the deeply Orthodox leader of the 1925 Revolution led to an enormous power vacuum, which was eventually filled by the Statists, who immediately set about reshaping Helsonia under a brand new constitution (the first constitution Terminia had ever had).
