Red Star faction too clicheé?

There is an ongoing discussion on the forums about the Red Star faction (read more about it in the latest Dev Diary), specifically about its name. A user by the name iferry says that he is Russian himself and that he finds the name too clicheé.

It seems indeed a bit strange to have ‘Soviet Russia themed’ faction in the game, as the struggle between futuristic mega-corporations that serves as background for the game appears to be an extreme vision of a capitalist, not communist system.

On the other hand, you need to look no further than modern day China to see how a society can present itself as being communist on the outside, but actually be capitalist on the inside.
