The Communist Party of Luepola (Luepolan: Kommunistična Partija Ľupole, KPL or KPĽ) was a communist political party in Luepola founded in the late 19th century and active through the first half of the 20th century. During the rule of Lev Gincburg, the party was made the sole legal political party in Luepola, effectively transforming Luepola into a totalitarian socialist state. Later Communist leaders were responsible for the spread of communism to Apelia and Granzery among other states. The party leadership eventually steered Luepola on a warpath with the Vierz Empire, starting the Great War. Following the total defeat of Luepola, the party was dissolved in the Treaty of Adtrus and its leadership executed.

The Luepolan Workers' Party, which formed a government after winning the Luepolan 1997 elections, is often considered the spiritual successor of the Communist Party of Luepola. Though the party explicitly dissassociates itself with and denounces the Communist Party and its actions, the Workers' Party was the subject of widespread controversy for advocating broadly similar economic and social policies to those that were implemented under the Communist Party's rule.
