The Continental Party of the Northeast Union (CPNU) is a major party of the Northeast Union. Founded in 1919, by John D. Ironsmith, a Social-Democrat, its purpose at first was to unite the Northeast Union with the United Commonwealth. It grew as a anti-corruption, pro-labor and militant fraternal organization with the intent to overthrow the ruling and dominant Liberal-Republican Party. Officially within its charter it identifies as a left-wing political party adhering to social democracy, Christian socialism and pan-American civic nationalism. Its center enduring foreign policy is to unite with the United Commonwealth to restore the United States of America.

Within the Constitution of the Continentalist Party, the National Committee is considered the highest body of the party, meeting every four years. The National Committee is composed of delegates from cities and states. The Continentalist Party has remained controversial in the coastal, northern and eastern parts of the country, as to their perceived ties to the Continentalist Party of the United Commonwealth. Many believe the party is but a puppet of the Central Comittee of the UC Continentalist Party.

Throughout the history of the party, it has only come to be part of the governing coalition twice: 1942-1946 with the Social-Democrats, and from 1990 to 1992 with the progressive wing of the Liberal-Republicans.
