The Xiaodongese Section of the Workers' International (Xiaodongese: 工人国际晓东支部; Gōngrén guójì xiǎodōng zhībù) sometimes referred to as the Workers' Party (工人党; Gōngréndǎng) was a socialist political party that was active in Xiaodong in the early 20th century. It played a major role in Xiaodongese politics particularly in its frequent insurrections against both the pre-war monarchy and post-war republic eventually allying with Lu Keqian's Xiaodong Regeneration Society that successfully overthrew the republic in the Corrective Revolution and subsequent civil war. The Xiaodongese Section would reach its zenith following the civil war when it became one of the main parties of government; however it would be eradicated from the political scene during the 1942 socialist purge with many of its functionaries either assimilating into the establishment National Principlist political order or being imprisoned and killed by the Shujichu.
