Western Kuehong, then called Democratic Kuehong, officially the Kue People's Democratic Republic, was a Kue-majority state that existed from 1938 to 1960 when the Muinon Peninsula was partitioned along ethnic lines. It bordered Cinasia to the east and south and Fayaan to the north.
After the partitioning of Muinon, the newly-formed Kue state was briefly ruled by the Kuehong National Alliance (KNA), a coalition of pro-Kue parties promoting Kue nationalism. However, the civil war saw a great decrease in support by the Kue as it was seen as weak and submissive to other forces (it was expected that the KNA will drive out the foreigners and let the Kue rule over the Muinon Peninsula). A communist coup took place not long after in 1942, supported by Suria, known as the October 31 movement. Until 1954, the KPDR was ruled by the Kuehong Socialist Front (KSF), until its rule was contested by pro-democracy protests in March 1954 and ended by a military coup.
The military coup, supported by Bai Kuehong, imposed martial law over the nation. The military went on to hold elections the year afterwards for the New People's Assembly Elections. However, the military remained influential in the state's politics but instrumental in the negotiations that led to the reunification of today's Kuehong.
