Politics of Superior
Political parties

The United Conservative Party of Superior (German: Vereinigte Konservative Partei Superiors), also known as the Conservative Party (German: Konservative Partei) and more commonly as the United Conservatives (German: Vereinigten Konservativen), the Conservatives (German: Konservativen), and the Tories, is a centre-right political party in Superior. It was formed in November 2002 as a merger of the Conservative Party and United Popular Front to form a unified political party and form a single united front for the political right. The UCP is centre-right to right-wing on the Superian political spectrum while it's major rival, the Liberal Democrats, are on the centre to centre-left. The party has been accused of fostering many far-right factions, though the party officially denies such accusations. The party describes itself as a big tent of the right and welcomes people who hold various views and different variations and ideas relating to conservatism and broad variety of members. The party's current leader is Isaac Dillon having been serving since 2018. He's also been president since 2022 and was Leader of the Opposition from 2018 to 2022.

Prior to its creation, the Conservative Party and United Popular Front were the two leading conservative parties in the country with the Conservatives representing the mainstream wing espousing economic liberalism, social conservatism, and one-nation conservatism while the United Popular Front was centered around a national conservative, right-wing populist and economic nationalist platform. Both parties competed in elections, though they would work with one another if either of them were able to form a government and their differences declined starting in the late 1970s and culminated in the merge of 2002 to form the United Conservative Party. The first election the UCP ran in was in 2003, where the party won an outright majority, which made party leader and founder Alexander Harper as President. Harper's government, and to an extension the United Conservative Party, had high approval ratings, but would see a decline near the 2015 Superian federal election, which resulted in the Liberal Democrats and the Progressive Bloc gaining a majority. In the 2019 federal election, the United Conservative Party, along with its allies, would become a sizeable and actually threatening opposition. A year later in 2020 a snap election was called after a vote of no confidence passed against Jennifer Granholm and her government for their handling of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Black Lives Matter protests. It would result in a large surge of United Conservative support, however continued to be the official opposition.

As of the 2022 federal election, the United Conservative Party holds 17 seats in the High Council and 96 seats in the House of Delegates making them the largest party in Parliament and the current governing party. Six state governors are members of the United Conservative Party and the party holds a significant number of seats in state legislatures. The party's base is primary based within the northern and southern states , most notably New Anjou, Arrowhead, Dakota, and Wyoming. The party is part of the American Conservative Coalition and holds 20 seats out of the 43 in the Superian delegation to the American Parliament in the Conference of American States as of 2020. Currently, the United Conservatives are in a governing alliance with the Christian Democrats, the Constitution and Unionist Party, and the Libertarian Party.


Historic predecessors

Prior to 2002, the leading right-leaning political party in Superior was the Conservative Party. Formed in 1868, the Conservative Party was created in response to the recently-formed National Republican Party and adhered to a platform of social conservatism, monarchism, and the protection of the then German-majority culture. The Conservatives would enter parliament as the third largest party in 1869, and would emerge as one of two major parties following the 1877 elections, alongside the Liberal Democratic Party.

Under the direction of party leader, and soon-to-be president, John Claremont, the Conservative Party would begin to slowly undergo a transition to liberal conservatism. Following continued party defeats, Claremont and party leadership beleived that a shift to liberal conservative values would help improve the party's standing across Superior. This shift would be temporarily halted in 1957 by John Abbott, but would be continued by his successor Andrew Carwell. Many of the party's traditonal and socially conservative values, such as the promotion of Lutheran and Christian social values, opposition to social welfare, and support for greater Superian independence within the Anglo-American community, would be abandoned for more liberal conservative policies. The shift towards liberal conservativism would be completed under the tenure of Alexander Ludendorff, who controversially marked the completion with a public condemnation of the party's social conservatives, a move which was viewed as extremely damaging to the future of the party.

The Conservatives shift to liberal conservatism would be opposed by many in the party, with many in the party believing that its leadership was "selling out" conservative values in an effort to win voters in Liberal Democratic strongholds. In response to Ludendorff's liberal conservative leadership, Joseph K. Liebermann and other prominent national conservatives would lead an exodus from the Conservative Party, forming the populist and socially conservative United Popular Front. Following Ludendorff's retirement, the Conservative Party would suffer major defeats to the UPF, resulting in a split in the Superian right and the latter overtaking the former as leaders of the opposition in 1999. After pursuing a policy of no-negotiations, the Conservative Party would enter a legislative coalition with the United Popular Front in 2000. UPF leader Alexander Harper, in an effort to end the decades-long Liberal Democratic governance of the nation, would forge a unification deal with the Conservative Party, forming the United Conservative Party at a press conference in Duluth, Arrowhead. As leader of the UPF, Harper would be unanimously elected as the leader of the United Conservatives.

Early political activities

Following the retirement of Alexander Ludendorff, the Conservative Party would undergo a schism, leading to the formation of four major conservative parties within the Parliament of Superior. They were: the Conservative Party, which promoted a platform liberal conservatism, the United Popular Front, which promoted a platform of national conservatism and populism, the Christian Democratic Party, which promoted a platform of Christian democracy, and the Constitution and Unionist Party, which promoted a platform of social conservatism and nationalism. Despite some of these parties sharing similar conservative values, each implemented a policy of no-cooperation with each other, with each party viewing themselves as the true representation of conservative values in Superior. The split in the Superian right would lead to a decade of largely unopposed Liberal Democratic dominance in federal politics, leading to the passage of progressive, and somewhat controversial, legislation without the worry of a united conservative opposition.

In 1998, longtime United Popular Front leader David Manning, who succeed Liebermann following a corruption scandal, would be succeeded by Alexander Harper. Harper, a national conservative opposed to the dominance of the Liberal Democrats, would become influential in the formation of the Unite the Right movement, which aimed at forming a united conservative front in order to oppose the Liberal Democratic Party and their progressive agenda. Despite support among members of the Popular Front, Harper would receive pushback from the Conservatives, with party leader Francis Fischer opposing the Popular Front's adherence to national conservatism and continued to maintain the party's belief that liberal conservatism would prevail over "regressive conservatism". This assumption would prove false during the 1999 federal election, which saw the Conservative Party suffer a historic defeat, being pushed out of the main opposition position to the Popular Front.

Beginning in 2000, Popular Front and Conservative leaders would engage in talks to form a legislative coalition. The talks were largely pushed by Harper, who wished to create some sort of deal before the next federal election. Although tensions remained between both parties, especially after the 1999 federal election, the shared goal of ending the Liberal Democratic government would motivate leaders from both sides to begin working out some form of agreement. In a show of conservative unity, Harper would also invite the Christian Democrats and the Constitutional Unionists to the talks, however both declined on different grounds. For the Christian Democrats, the Popular Front's support for populism discouraged the party's leadership which had been staunchly anti-populist since the party's foundation, while for the Constitutional Unionists, party leadership believed that Harper would abandon national conservative values in order to appease the Conservatives. Along with that, Constitutional Unionist leadership believed that both the Popular Front and Conservatives would force the party to abandoned many of its core principles for the same reason. In December of 2000, the Popular Front and Conservative Party would enter a legislative coalition agreement, which would eventually be upgraded into a electoral coalition later in the month.

From the beginning, Conservative Party leadership was opposed to associating with the Popular Front, with newly-appointed interim leader Steve Wainwright believing that the alliance with the Popular Front jeopardized the party's hope of maintaining a moderate base. Along with that, with the Popular Front acting as the senior partner due to its larger share of seats, Wainwright and Conservative leadership believed that the Popular Front would attempt to coerce the party into adopting more right wing stances. Due to this mentality, Wainwright and his party's leadership would assume an aggressive stance towards co-operation with the Popular Front, sometimes purposefully failing to uphold their terms of the agreement. This inner conflict within the coalition was most recognizable in July of 2001, when Conservative MPs voted against the Popular Front's Other Opportunities Act, which had the backing of other opposition parties, such as the Farmer Labor Party, and had a chance of passing, and in December of 2001, when the Conservatives refused to support the Popular Front's inquiry into the effectiveness of the Superian healthcare system. Despite such aggressiveness from its leadership, Conservative Party members almost universally supported the coalition with the Popular Front, with many opposing Wainwright's leadership.

Following both Popular Front and Conservative victories in a number of state and local elections in 2001, Harper would begin to publicly push for a unification deal with the Conservatives in 2002, hoping to unite the conservative vote for the upcoming election next year. In response, Wainwright would claim that the Popular Front had "violated" the original coalition agreement, and that the Conservatives would be withdrawing from the coalition by the end of the year. Wainwright's response would receive intensive backlash from party members and many Conservative MPs, who believed that he was only opposed to the deal because it would end his tenure as a major political leader. Wainwright would deny such claims, instead believing that the party's values were being trampled on by their allies. Wainwright's response would have unintended political consequences, as some Conservative MPs would defect to the Popular Front, including his deputy Ian Walberg. With such low morale among Conservatives, party leadership would organize a conference in June, which they would attempt to gather support for their actions. In the leadership conference, party members would make Superian political history by voting to remove Wainwright as party leader and to remove every member of the executive committee. As a result, attending party members would hold a leadership vote, electing James Carlson as the new party leader. Carlson, a supporter of the Unite the Right movement, would agree to working out a unification deal with the Popular Front.

In November of 2002, in a joint press conference, Harper would announce the formation of the United Conservative Party, the result of a merger between the Conservatives and the Popular Front. As leader of the larger party, Harper would assume the role as interim leader, which would be officially confirmed in a leadership election in January of 2003, while Carlson would assume the role as deputy leader. Disapproval over the Liberal Democratic government's spending habits, and its continued support for controversial and, at the time, unpopular policies, such as the ban on assualt weapons and the nationalization of the health industry, and rumored , along with general decline in Liberal Democratic support over its nearly decade-and-a-half governance, would see the United Conservatives soar in the polls for the upcoming 2003 federal election. Running on a platform of national conservatism, economic liberalism, and partial populism, Harper would lead the United Conservatives into a landslide victory against incumbent President James Carr and the Liberal Democrats, entering government more than a year after its formation.

Harper Administration (2003–2015)

The 2003 Superian federal election was a major victory for the United Conservative Party and saw the establishment of the first conservative government in Superior since the end of the 1970s, bringing an end to the New Liberal Initiative and over a decade of Liberal Democratic governance. Not only was it the first victory for the United Conservative Party on a national level, it was also a record victory in terms of the first victory for a newly formed political party and had the biggest seat gain since the 1985. Alexander Harper became the first conservative president since Alexander Ludendorff who Harper and the UCP payed tribute towards after their victory.

Ideology and platform

The United Conservative Party describes itself as a big-tent for the right wing and is an alliance of conservatives of all different types with the most notable being social conservatives, national conservatives, and one-nation conservatives. The party are strong supporters of the monarchy and oppose any attempts to abolish it viewing it as a vital institution integral to Superian political and cultural life, identity and stability. The United Conservatives prefer gradual change believing that change and reform must be gradual and cannot be rushed. As a result, the party generally favors the monarchy, is opposed to further restrictions on its powers, and generally opposes any major reforms to Superior's political and social institutions. The party is socially conservative and favors a traditionalist, Christian-centered culture, but it recent years has been more tolerant of same-sex marriage, though the party favors civil unions over same-sex marriage in general. Economically speaking, the party adheres to Economic liberalism and favors free markets with little regulation, though some factions are economic nationalists and are more protectionist.

Social issues

The United Conservatives adhere to a socially conservative platform and have historically been opposed to social and cultural change. The party was a leading force in opposing same-sex marriage and was highly critical of the 2015 decision to legalize same-sex marriage across Superior. In the modern era, the United Conservative Party has been less vocal in its opposition to same-sex marriage and has been more tolerant of LGBT Superians and formed the United LGBT Conservatives in 2011, though the party is opposed to mandating churches to carry out same-sex marriage and are opposed to stripping churches that refuse to conduct such services of their tax-exempt status. On the issue of abortion, the United Conservative Party is pro-life and is opposed to the practice and thus support regulations on abortion, though few support outright criminalization. The UCP believes that human life begins at conception and that a fetus is worthy of legal protection and is opposed to abortion being allowed after the third trimester.

Economic issues

The United Conservative Party adheres towards economic liberalism supporting free market capitalism and is opposed to most economic regulations. The party believes that the free market is the best way to improve Superior's standard of living and only supports certain regulations while opposing most others under the belief that most current regulations threaten compeition and free trade, both of which the party views as essential towards Superior's economic wellbeing. Under the Harper administration, economic regulations were curtailed and a greater emphasis on trust in the free market was given. After losing in 2015, the Granholm government increased economic regulations which the United Conservatives largely opposed.

Foreign policy

The United Conservative Party originally had an interventionist stance on foreign policy in 2004 until 2018 when a non-interventionist stance was adopted by Isaac Dillon after being elected party leader, but many faction of the United Conservative Party do support intervention and the UCP does support the idea of Superior and Anglo-America having a moral obligation to protect its international interests and defending democracy around the world. The party supports increasing military spending for defensive purposes and is against the demilitarization of Superior's border with the United Commonwealth. While in a leading position in previous years, a large portion of the party does espouse neoconservatism. The UCP supports caution in regards to Superian involvement in international military operations from League of Nations peacekeeping to involvement in overseas conflicts like in Syria, though supports completing these missions and achieving victory before withdrawing from said countries.

The United Conservative Party is against normalizing relations with the United Commonwealth viewing the nation as Superior's chief rival. They support reinstituting Superior's claim over Michigan and claiming it as occupied Superian territory and have encouraged defection from the United Commonwealth to Superior. During the Granholm era, the UCP opposed the re-establishment of formal diplomatic ties and called for a more aggressive stance. Since Dillon took office in 2022, the party has managed to reinstitute the federal government's claim over Michigan and has begun proposing and implementing sanctions against the United Commonwealth and its allies in both the Chattanooga Pact and OMEAD. It's also opposed to normalized relations with the United People's Committees as well along with all other currently existing states with Landonist and/or communist governments.

Domestic policy

During the George Floyd-inspired protests, the United Conservative Party opposed efforts to reduce funding, disarm, and abolish law enforcement agencies across Superior and promoted an agenda of law and order. During the 2020 federal election campaign, party leader Isaac Dillon stated his support for a "hardline" law and order agenda, and controversially decried protestors affiliated with Black Lives Matter as domestic terrorists, deeming the entire organization as a "front for the Continentals". This hardline position is credited with decreasing the United Conservatives' polling, and eventual loss in the election.



The United Conservative Party's leadership is largely centered around the Conservative Executive Board which serves as the party's governing body and is lead by the president. The President of the United Conservative party is either elected by the board in an internal party election or is appointed by the party's leader. This is the party's leadership on the federal level while on the state level it's more decentralized. State parties are lead by a chair who is elected in a closed door party election. The state chair is supported by an advisory committee of delegates representing the different county branches of the state party and varies by size depending on the size of the state. State parties send delegates to annual meetings and events such as the Conservative Action and Policy Summit, especially when high-ranking party leaders and officials are attending the summit.

State parties



The Leader of the United Conservative Party is the overall head and chief executive of the UCP and is tasked with being the party's leader and appointing other officials to the party's other bodies. The Conservative Exectuve Board is the governing body of the United Conservative Party and is a 13 member board lead by the President of the United Conservative Party who can appoint and approve members to the board with the permission of the party's leader. As of 2018, Isaac Dillon is the Leader of the United Conservative Party while Amy Lloyd is the party's president and chairwoman of the executive board. The other 12 members are prominent party officials who hold authority over its internal functions including financing and donations, communications and media, and the party's overall platform. The executive board is also responsible for hosting political conventions such as the Conservative National Convention since the creation of the Conservative Coalition in 2018.
