Politics and government of the
Kingdom of Sierra

The Kingdom of Sierra is a multi-party western-style liberal and parliamentary democracy with over a dozen parties holding seats in the K.S. Parliament. The two oldest parties in the country are the Royalist and Federalist Party and the Democratic-Republican Party of Sierra (DRPS), often refered to as the "founding parties", that were the first political parties to be formed in Sierra upon the kingdom's creation. Throughout the 19th century and most of the 20th century, the Royalists and Democratic-Republicans governed the country at various points in a two-party system, though several other parties did hold seats in Parliament and often cooperated with either of the two major parties at various points. In the 1990s, the Libertarian Party of Sierra rose to prominance and became a major national political party with mainstream attention and relevance. Starting in 1994, the term "Big Three" emerged to refer to the Royalists, Libertarians and the DRPS who were part of a political triumvirate and were the biggest parties in terms of membership, seats in parliament, and positions in the federal government and cabinet.

Other parties would emerge in the 1990s and 2000s such as the Social Democrats of Sierra (SDS) and the Green Party of Sierra (GPS) on the left and the Christian Demmocratic Party (CDP) on the right starting in the mid-2010s, often being labeled as third parties. In 2020, the Social Democrats won power for the first time and would be re-elected in 2021, seeing the Social Democrats displace the Libertarian Party as part of the Big Three, forcing the latter into the position as a minor party of minimul influence and relevancy. The Big Three parties, both previously and presently, frequently work with third parties in parliament as part of coalition governments or as a unified opposition. Common alliances include progressive coalitions between the DRPS, Social Democrats, and Green parties and conservative coalitions between the Royalists and Libertarians. While rare federally, there have been cases of coalitions between the DRPS and Royalist Parties, commonly called a cornflower coalition, with the most recent of such being formed after the election in 2022, though the practice is more common on the regional level in the legislatures of several provinces in Federal Sierra and other PSAs nationwide.

Operating under a system of devolution between four constituent countries, each of these countries have their own political parties, both as devolved affiliates of the national parties and regional parties exclusive to their respective countries. In Hawaii, the political parties consist of the devolved affiliates of national parties and two notable regionalist parties; the Hawaiian Sovereignty Party and the Hawaiian Independence Party. The Deseret consists of the People's Party and the Honeybee Party, both of which are aligned with the Royalists and DRPS respectively through party agreements, and the Social Democrats of the Deseret that are affiliated with the federal Social Democrats while Bajaría has their own regional parties with loose connections to their federal counterparts, based on ideological and policy agreements, instead of devolved affiliates.
