List of Parties in Ruthund
Ruthenish: "The Restoration"
Njothlenaz is currently the largest party in Ruthund and represents the conservative movement in Ruthund. They advocate for a position known as Fyridokism, which is the belief that the Monarchy should be restored to the current title holder of "Fyridok", which traditionally held the throne in Ruthund. Fyridokism is also associated with the belief that democracy should be curtailed and remains subservient to the Monarch and their royal court. The party also believes that the European Union is an intrusion upon the nation and spiritual identity of Ruthund and supports its withdrawal from the EU, however the party has recently toned down their stance on Euroscepticism and their most recent party platform, leaving it an open question weather they would leave the EU if they were in power. However they are firmly against any further federalization of the European Union.
They favor a corporatist model for Ruthund, where the state sanctions monopoly rights on the corporation while it assists the state in turn. While not exactly the same as the old Ruthenish economic model pre-Reformation, many policy analysts conclude there are many similarities to where many would consider the two to be the same.
Njothlenaz in foreign policy supports a policy of a return to isolationism or at least limiting foreign interactions with other countries to trade relations. They believe maintaining strong trade relations with regional neighbors will allow Ruthund to miminize contact with the outside world. Hence, they support maintaining relations with Icholasen, Fremet, and Vayinoad, to an extent. Although initially opposing the recognition of the UNSR, the party came in support of it after the Neutrality Motion failed in the European Council. The party currently favors normalized relations with the UNSR.
(JNu) Jan Nubaima
Ruthenish: "There is a New Tree"
Jan Nubaima is one of the successor parties to the Republican Faction Schism of 1996, with the party encompassing the faction's moderates. While initially a party that supported a position called Mekilfyraz Abolitionism (sometimes called Radical Republicanism), the party shifted towards supporting the status quo on the question of the Mekilfyraz Throne, with a perpetual Stewardship of the Throne (which is known as Stewardism). The party supports liberalization of the economy and society and though advocated for incrementalism and slow change as the best way forward for Ruthund, as compared to immediate reforms. By 2018, they supported Ruthund's eventual entrance into the European Union.
Though the party was considered centre to centre-left and seemingly a compatible with Eurofederalist tendacies, the party shifted towards the centre-right when the Progressive Wing of the Party collapsed due to their disagreement on whether to allow the Steward to appoint a temporary European Council without the counsel of the Thuidwethon, among other issues. The party has since shifted to the centre-right and supports a resistance to Eurofederal though not quite as extreme as the Njothlenaz and largely support a status quo with some reforms to the European Constitution.
