Portugal, so many years o_O. Didn't think it was that much.
Aug 14th, 2010 at 21:15 GMT
France (Vichy) as a bonus, at least

It seems really dubious to me listing the Salazar regime in Portugal or the later years of the Horthy Regime in Hungary as fascist, much less Japan, which I don't think any serious historian would really describe as fascist. And what's El Salvador 1989-2009 doing on here? El Salvador in that period is normally taken to have been relatively democratic - free elections and democratic transitions and such.

Gosh..I went to El Salvador 5 straight years 2003-2007 and never realized it was a fascist state.

If you are going to include Albania, then you would have to include Quisling's Norway, as well as Romania, Slovakia, Croatia, etc etc....

No Integralist Brazil? I do think historians would consider 40's imperial Japan to be Fascist leaning, it had most of the hallmarks of it.
Aug 16th, 2010 at 21:00 GMT
You are missing Romania's Iron Guard. Ruled briefly from Sept. 1940-Jan. 1941. And I quibble with the inclusion of Albania (it was really an Italian puppet government) if you are not going to include Vichy France, Quisling's Norway, etc. Not sure about Bulgaria either. Someone will have to explain that one to me. Also, El Salvador. I don't even know where that comes from. As for Brazil, Zephos, when did the Inegralists rule Brazil? Did they ever? (please pardon my ignorance on Brazilian history; I really don't know!)
Aug 17th, 2010 at 21:34 GMT
This is so arbitrary. Why Bulgaria and Croatia but not Slovakia, for example. And if you're going to be so loose as to include El Salvador, then why not Austria after 1934? I gave this a 2 for effort.

i think bulgaria is reasonable, but the real problem is that there's no source and jmpasquale is not explaining the criteria to us. so bad quiz
Aug 20th, 2010 at 08:26 GMT
albania, and croatia all had very fascist regimes in place that supported and were not just ruled by the axis powers during wwII. albania was certainly split between fascists and non-fascists, but the fascists were in control and after Italy surrendered the Albanian ruling fascists became german facist nazis. after ww2 ended, civil war between fascists and non-fascists (mainly communists) broke out. croatia was virulently racist and fascist. slovakia was part of czechoslovakia which was really crushed by germany, not supportive of germany (unlike the hungarians who welcomed hitler with open arms). but this is just A reading of the history. i still say we have no source and no objective criteria.
Aug 20th, 2010 at 08:29 GMT
oh, and bulgaria was definitely fascist before wwii which is why italy and germany thought bulgaria would support them when they were ripping through eastern europe. but bulgaria didn't continue that way.
Aug 20th, 2010 at 16:54 GMT
Japan was not fascits just because it was allied with Germany, however bulgaria Romania Hungary Slovakia (not by choice) Finland and Norway were fascist and allied to Germany, oh and obviously Italy, I also think I heard something about iraq wanting to join the axis, I don't know if that made them fascist...

El Salvador had free elections? Tell that to the leftists. Oh wait you can't, because they were all killed by death squads.
Aug 25th, 2010 at 21:40 GMT
These answers were extracted from the various historical reference books I own. Japan had always been traditional Asian culture that would draw on the west for ideas, (hence banzai charges: the result of the traditional Japanese concept of dying on the field of battle combining with Western military weapons and tactics). When it began to side with Germany, it began borrowing concepts from fascism. That's what it said in my reference books anyway.

Austria was absorbed almost completely into the German Reich, so it seemed redundant to include them. Also Quisling's Norway was left out for the same reason as Vichey France. Both were just puppets of Germany
Aug 31st, 2010 at 02:37 GMT
No it's not redundant, Austria had an independent fascist regime who Hitler covertly liquidated before annexing the place. It was one of the early points of conflict between Mussolini and Hitler, since Mussolini had been pals with Engelbert Dollfuss.

I would definitely not call Smetona a fascist.
May 19th, 2011 at 01:30 GMT
San Marino had a Fascist government allied with Mussolini. I think the big problem with quizzes like this is the definition of Fascism. Does it mean totalitarianism, torchlight parades, uniformed political parties, etc.? Or can it be simple authoritarianism allied with extreme nationalism? Tiso in Slovakia was a Catholic priest, so not an ordinary Fascist, but he had no problems cooperating with Hitler, much as Croatia, a similarly clerico-fascist regime. Spain, on the other hand, despite a fascist veneer, was more an old style Caudillo dictatorship, in cooperation with the Catholic church. It's tricky.

JAPAN???? Japan was allied with the fascists they themselves were not. sorry to point this out but it was needed.
Jun 29th, 2011 at 06:25 GMT
I didn't make this quiz so people could debate with me and other Sporclers on what is and isn't Fascist. I'm sorry I disappointed some of you with my selection of answers, but as carbon_rod pointed out, defining a government as complex as Fascism is difficult even for 20th century historians such as myself. I just figured people would prefer clicking on a quiz that said "Fascist countries" and see many nations that were considered fascist rather than just Germany and Italy.
