Western Crete. Later on, in the 1980s, War broke out between Eastern and Western Crete. This war was known as the Cretan War. At the end of this war, the U.S was able to drive the communist Eastern Cretes out of Western Crete and Eastern Crete became a North Korea-like situation. America once again invaded Eastern Crete with the aid of the EU in 1994, and rid Eastern Crete of Communism. Eastern Crete is now a very shaky Democracy. It receives a lot of support from the Republic of Lacedonia.
