The All-Filipino Revolutionary Socialist Republic, officially the Hukbong Bayan Laban sa Hapon, or more known as the AFRSR or Hukbalahap is one of the three rival governments in the Philippine Archipelago. The nation is an unrecognized state created in opposition to the Japanese-Backed Second Philippine Republic, based in Northern Luzon. As part of their revolutionary goal of creating a Socialist Republic in the Philippines, it wages an guerilla and people's war against the the Japanese-sponsored Second Philippine Republic to the south.

It consists of Filipino peasants and farmers fighting against the occupation of Japan and the KALIBAPI. While the nation is neutral, the Huks begrudgingly work with the Commonwealth Exiles and the United States to keep themselves afloat and armed.

It holds an uneasy truce and alliance with the Commonwealth Exiles in Mindanao and Visayas, the resistance movement led by Carlos Garcia.
