Kras Mazov (nom de guerre) was an economist and a historical materialist. Mazov is considered the father of scientific communism (mazovian thought or mazovianism). He was a leading figure on the Graad side of the Centennial Revolution, stepping in during the tzaarath pandemic to offer a response where Graad authorities have failed. In fact, he overthrew the government and installed his own, frequently called the Eleven Day Government. [1] As the Premier of the Communist Party of Shest and Graad, he was killed at the State Day Palace in Mirova during the counter-revolutionary offensive. He is said to have committed suicide.[2]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

The name Kras Mazov is probably a reference to the Karamazov family, a problematic family features in Fyodor Dostoevsky's novel The Brothers Karamazov, but is also phonetically similar to Karl Marx, whose political work Mazovianism parallels.
