Recommended Posts

Political parties (1/2)

Nation-sized parties

Constitutionalist Union (Union Constitutionnelle)

Founded: 19 March 1804
Ideologies: liberal-conservatism, parliamentarism, moderate monarchism
Factions: free-market (majority), anti-slavery (majority), industrialism (minority), conservatism (minority)
Important members/affiliated:
- Désiré de Belleville, Senator of Javiosia and Confederal Chancellor
- Charles Brisquet, Secretary of State of Foreign Affairs

The Constitutionalist Union is the biggest party in Florentia, but also the first, founded by the constitutionalist militants – composed of merchants, manufacturers and intellectuals – when they obtained from the King of Javiosia the writing of a constitution, and the creation of a local parliament. Since, almost all the Javiosian Prime Ministers were from the Constitutionalist Union.
The party is also present in Lasoda (leading party, in a coalition with the Stillian Legitimist Party), Rivière de Juillet (leading party) and Coayard (opposition party, in a monarchist coalition). Finally, the party was also leading Tyronie before the local military did a coup d’Etat, in the 2000’s.



Popular Party (Parti Populaire)

Founded: 8 November 1896
Ideologies: Christian socialism, left-wing populism, progressivism, anti-communism, anti-slavery
Factions: centralism (majority), republicanism (minority)
Important members/affiliated:
- Hugo Dellague, Senator of Bayave and de facto dictator of Bayave (despite not being the official governor)
- Rosie de Varelle, wife of second Prince Ambroise-Alexandre de Varelle

The Popular Party is the only left-wing party of Florentia (except the Liberty Union in Coayard). The goal of the party is to fight poverty, advocating that everybody is equal in front of God and the all the rich should share their wealth. They also do that to avoid any socialist uprising. Indeed, if there is no poverty anymore, there is also no red danger. They are very popular amongst the little folks.

They are present in Bayave (leading party), Javiosia (main opposition party), Rivière de Juillet (main opposition party) and Yalme (main opposition party).



State-sized parties

Free Lysian Action (Action Libre Lysienne)

Founded: 29 May 1958
Ideologies: white supremacism, republicanism, pro-slavery, right-wing populism, authoritarianism
Factions: state-capitalism (majority), chauvinism (majority)
Important members/affiliated:
- King Ursule VI of Abalavier support of party (even if not being a member)

The Free Lysian Action was founded in reaction of the ban of slavery in Narizonia. Profiting of the terrible economic situation of Florentia, they got power in Narizonia in 1963. They re-established slavery in the State, instituted censor-ship of medias and began harassing political opposition. Since, they always managed to keep power, acting de facto as a vanguard party. Even if free elections are still hold, all the candidates are from the party because it is just too dangerous to oppose them in Narizonia. They are supported by the reactionary little bourgeoisie and the land-owners.

They are present only in Narizonia, even if they have support from the King of Abalavier.



Stillian Legitimist Party (Parti Légitimiste Stillien / Partido Legitimista Stilliano)

Founded: 02 August 1846
Ideologies: Stillian nationalism, protectionism, moderated monarchism, conservatism
Factions: absolute monarchism (minority), pro-slavery (minority)
Important members/affiliated:
- Duke Eduardo II of Lasoda

The party was created by Stillian nationalists to obtain independence. After a revolt in 1849 and negotiations, the Duchy of Lasoda, corresponding to the former colony bought to Iverica, was released from the Kingdom of Nouvelle-Creuse and is since considered as a state. They have always been very popular but, recently, began to decline because of a youth tired of their conservatism, which forced them to do an alliance with the Constitutional Party to stay in power.
