Description[?]:

Ideology:
Social democracy, social liberalism, progressivism, center-left

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Common Factions:

Social Democrats: The oldest and original faction, promoting government programs and regulations for the good of the common people. Tend to emphasize economic policies, which involve regulations and policies that lean towards socialism. Believe in liberal social policies, and promoting environmental protection. However sometimes willing to compromise if necessary.

Centrists: Moderate members, promoting more economic freedom than Social Democrats, and some restrictive social policies, where they sometimes hold more conservative views. Calling for more compromise and bipartisanship.

Progressives: Similar to the Social Democrats, but more concerned with social policies and protecting nature/the environment.

Third Way: Believes in policies from different parts of the political spectrum, willing to compromise, and tends to combine different ideas of common ideologies. May overlap or sometimes synonymous with centerists and other factions in the SDP, but some have a unique identity.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Social Democratic Party (the SDP for short) is a center-left party (currently the minority) that stands for social democracy, social liberalism, and progressivism. We would like the government to make sure everyone is able to have a successful life. We believe that it is the government's responsibility and purpose to help the people as much as possible, even if it is at the expense of businesses. However, we support businesses that treat their workers well and help society.
We promote rationality and common sense, and social programs, and extending civil liberties for all.

We support the establishment of a presidential republic in Jelbania, and the prevention of tyranny. We also support the official establishment of a Supreme Court, thus creating a three-branch government. We oppose all forms of unjust governments, that are not accountable to its people.

Just some of our Positions:

Civil Rights: While majority rule is important, minority rights need to be protected. We oppose tyranny of the majority. We oppose discrimination based on gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion/personal beliefs, income, or national origin. We oppose all segregation. We believe that Jelbania should live in a color-blind society, where looks do not matter.

Health care: We support national health care to ensure everyone is healthy.

Religion: We support a complete separation of religion and the state and religious freedom. We oppose the establishment of an official state religion or belief system.

Environment: It is one of the most important tasks to make sure Jelbania takes care of the environment. We support regulations.

Economy: We support regulation by government, but still a free economy.

Abortion/Euthanasia: We are pro-choice and wish to have both legalized, but encourage contraception, adoption and abstinence as alternatives to abortion.

Education: We believe in expanding and improving public education.

Military: We are pacifist and encourage diplomacy over war and only wish to use our military for defense.

Death Penalty: We oppose the death penalty on grounds of suffering, injustice and effectiveness.

Centralization: While we oppose too much centralization that gives the central government too much power (thus creating a tyranny), but we believe that the central government should be relatively strong to make good decisions for the country as a whole, and to prevent anarchy.

Random fact: The people in your nation don't like inactive parties. When you often abstain from voting for a bill, they will dislike your party and your visibility to the electorate will decrease significantly. Low visibility will means you are likely to lose seats. So keep in mind: voting Yes or No is always better than Abstaining.

Random quote: Thousands of Zardic soldiers were sacrificed so that the Zardic government could gain control of a few buildings and Theodoro could pretend to be Augustus the Great. This is the kind of jingoistic ideology Zardugal would bring to the Security Council. They will throw countless lives away in pursuit of former glory. � Prince Akhaias of Cobura invoking the Tokundi War of Independence in opposition to Zardugal's bid for 4112 World Congress Security Council
