From the Encylopædia Dranlandia:
"The Dranish Hosian Democrats, or the DHD, is a centrist party from Santa Sharika with strong roots in the parts of Dranland which worships the Selucian Patriarchal Church. Founded by Luiz Sastre, a former Selucian(??) priest with a masters degree in theology and a bachelor in philosophy, as an outcry for the lack of morality and constant bickering about left or right in the Dranish political debate.
It's opinions on the various political issues is a mix of socially liberal (when it comes to civil rights) and conservative (when it comes to morality and religion) values and a tendency to favor small over big government, but insisting on regulating big business. Adhering to the socio-economic philosophy of Distributism (http://classic.particracy.net/vieworganization.php?organizationid=2991) it favors the formation of small family owned businesses or worker-run cooperatives over traditional capitalist ownership of the means of production while at the same time condemning state ownership of the real economy. DHD also adheres to the principal of subsidiarity, which says that political decision and governmental administration should be as locally devolved as realistically possible. The party also opposes the virtues of free trade, which it sees as exploitive, and prefers fair trade instead while emphasizing that poor nations should receive aid. As it condemns political violence it also condemn military aggression and opposes the military-industrial complex as well as the construction of WMDs. The party lastly also puts great emphasize on the sustainability of the environment and supports measures to support ecological farming.
Even though the majority of party members are also members of the Selucian Patriarchal Church, the DHD does not see itself as a religious party per say. Instead the party wants to enforce the core values of the SDC's Social Teaching while maintaining a strict secular opinion of the seperation of church and state. While not advocating a theocracy, the party members are expected to be Hosians, both in their private life and when sitting in the parliament, even though the party charter decrees no such thing.
While being primarily a party of Dranianos ethnicity (almost 95% of members), there is no official nationalist line in the party charter, although some party members have from time to time let slip critical remarks about the increasing ethnically diversification of Dranland. These statements are quick to be condemned form the party top, though, so as to not make the DHD look like hypocrits."
