    Founding:24/04/1952

    Political Position: Centre-Centre Right

    Ideology: Communitarianism, One Nation Conservatism, Third Way Economics

    Synopsis: The United Yosai Party is the only governing party in Yosai. Initially the party started out as a revolutionary republican movement dedicated to the overthrow of militaristic and feudal rule of the last Shogun and the end of the Shosei Era. The ruling party since 1960, it was founded in 1952 as a nationalist political movement, it has gone on to dominate the political system of the nation. The party’s main purpose was the removal of the Shogunate regime of the aristocratic district Lords and modernise the state. The Party has been credited with consistent and stable economic stewardship and the secularisation of the state and doing away with a feudalistic caste system as they saw it as a way of perpetuating poverty.

    Positioned on the centre-right of conventional politics and is usually considered ideologically conservative, the party has adopted policies a kin to economic liberalism; favouring free market policies, however also putting up strong competition and consumer protection laws to root out dubious trade practices as well as financial services oversight to cushion the effects of market shortfall, as well as establishing various welfare programs such as unemployment payments in the form of training and upskilling to ensure a skilled workforce and employability in order to cushion the effects of market failure.

    To that end however the party has been seen to evolve to a more economically third way minded and centrist with their Keynesian policies. Socially due to Yosai’s ethnic homogeneity the UYP is usually seen as socially conservative and favours traditional social institutions over social pluralism, however that is changing over time. Foreign policy wise they prefer neutrality over interfering with other nations affairs, the rationale behind this is that being a patchwork of small city states they don’t have the current influence to do so, as well as showing mutual respect to other nations governments.
