Kekistan: the virtual Asian Aryan ethnostate.

Kekistan is a fictional country created by 4chan members that has become a political meme and online movement. Kekistanis identify themselves as ‘shitposters’ persecuted by excessive political correctness, and that “although there are undoubtedly some trolls that use the term, the online movement is fundamentally a politically incorrect reaction to the suppression of free speech”.

Self-identified Kekistanis have created a cultural mythology around the fictitious country, including a fictional history that includes the invasion and overthrow of the ancient kingdom by the nations of “Normistan” and “Cuckistan”

As a satirical ethnicity it was soon taken up politically in the United States as an emblem for alt-right protesters against political correctness in late 2016 and 2017, with ‘Kekistanis’ decrying the ‘oppression’ of their people and trolling protesters by waving the ‘national flag of Kekistan’.
