As the previous posters pointed out, Fascism is the correct answer.  There are other options in the word bank that can go with Fascism, such as Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party.  Stalin could also be categorized as a "Fascist" under the definition offered.  The interesting thing here is that because of Russian association with the United States and the Allies during the war, Stalin is not traditionally seen in the same camp as Hitler or Mussolini, although there is plenty of evidence that he committed just as many inhuman atrocities as both of them.  The differentiation point is that Stalin, being a Communist, suggested an entire party control the nation and its military, but seeing that he did a fine job or rooting out any internal opposition, he was the party.
