The Collective State of Earth (CSE) is a terrorist group and political extremist movement that seeks to overthrown the Congress of Earth and establish a communist state with Chinese and Russian as the only languages on the planet. Since the founding of the Congress of Earth, the Communists were humiliated after losing control of China to the Republic of China and its capitalist allies. Having no choice but to leave Earth, they secretly travelled into the colony of Venus, where they would be safe from Congress patrols, due to the planet's toxic environment. Some of them decided to stay on Earth by forming an underground tunnel network called "the Gulag", which was named after a type of concentration camp used by the Soviet Union. Their leader was Alexi Develochi, a brilliant and charismatic man from the Ural Mountains who sought political control over Earth through a global revolution. However, when the war of the Sky People occurred, the Collective State of Earth had no choice but to join forces with their enemy. However, it only lasted until they were defeated by the Sky People in Afghanistan, causing the Communists to go against both the aliens and Congress. Eventually, they took control of Cuba, but it wasn't enough for them to achieve victory, since they had to keep on fighting two factions at the same time. After looting Ulysses-class Troop Carriers, they managed only to do one thing: the conquest of Southern Florida in 2142. Two days later, however, they lost control of the territory to the US forces, supported only by the British and French patrol groups.
