The Estado Novo or the Second Republic, was the corporatist authoritarian regime installed in Portugal in 1933. It evolved from the Ditadura Nacional formed after the coup d'état of 28 May 1926 against the democratic and unstable Portuguese First Republic. Together, the Ditadura Nacional and Estado Novo are reckoned as the Second Portuguese Republic. The Estado Novo, greatly inspired by conservative and authoritarian ideologies, was developed by António de Oliveira Salazar.

Opposed to communism, socialism, anarchism, liberalism and anti-colonialism, Before WWII, Salazar declared: "We are opposed to all forms of Internationalism, Communism, Socialism, Syndicalism and everything that may divide or minimize, or break up the family. We are against class warfare, irreligion and disloyalty to one’s country; against serfdom, a materialistic conception of life, and might over right". Salazar criticized Fascist dictatorship that according to his opinion was leaning towards pagan Caesarism and towards a new state which recognized no limitations of legal moral order. The regime was corporatist, conservative, and nationalist in nature, defending Portugal as Catholic state. Its policy envisaged the perpetuation of Portugal as a pluricontinental nation under the doctrine of lusotropicalism, with Angola, Mozambique, and other Portuguese territories as extensions of Portugal itself, and it being a source of civilization and stability to the overseas societies in the African and Asian possessions. Under Estado Novo Portugal preserved a vast, centuries-old empire with a total area of 2,168,071 km2.
