The People's Liberation Committe （人民解放委员会） is "Northern" China or all territory north of the Yangtze River. As said in its name, The PLC is the Communist element of the People's Republic of China after its division in 1990 (TSR EP03). the PLC was created in light of the Democractic Chinese Alliance seceding which started the Second Chinese Civil War. in 1995, both factions created a ceasefire which by the time of TSR (1998) both factions began negotiating extension of. Both United States and Soviet Union deeply wish both factions to reunite and heavily back Mithril to allow a peace process to continue, while Amalgam seems intent of derailing the process and resuming the Civil War (which Gates himself says had a hand in it since the beginning.) After Amalgam is stopped in Hong Kong, the fate of both PLC and DCA and China itself is unknown.
The PLC operates primarly Soviet technology, its mainstay Arm Slave (as seen in Hong Kong and Nanjing) are the Rk-92 Savage and its soldiers use what appear to be AKs. Standard soldier attire is of a pale green hue, and in fact appears to be similar to the real world Mao Suit.
