Nanjie (Chinese: 南街; pinyin: Nánjiē Cūn) is a village in Chengguan (城关), Linying County, Henan,[1][2] widely reported as being the last Maoist village in China.[3][4][5] It is under the administration of the town of Chengguan, which also serves as the county seat. In 1992, the GDP of this village exceeded 100 million yuan and became the famous "billion village" at that time, however, its output growth is proportional to the loans from some national banks of China at that time. These years, since it is unable to pay its huge loans, it is added to the reputation blacklist. Nanjiecun Group is running a 12-hour working system,which broke the Labour Law of the People's Republic of China.[6][7][8][9]

Financial situation[edit]

Nanjie collectivised its agricultural production and industry in the mid 1980s - when the rest of the country was doing the opposite, introducing market reforms put forward by former leader Deng Xiaoping. It continues to be run on Maoist egalitarian lines and has become something of a tourist attraction because of its staunch adherence to the values of Maoism.
