Die Mitte (Dundorfian for The Center) is a centrist political party in Dorvik. While only recently founded (in mid-4622) as a distinct political entity, Die Mitte had previously been a political alliance between Sozial-Liberale Liste and Solidarität (and the brief-lived Liberale Partei) dating back to July 4615.

The decision to unite the center as a distinct political party came following the 4619 failure of the alliance to propose a candidate for the Presidency, attributed to the dissolution of the Liberale Partei. Reduced to a clear minority in the Bundesrat, Helmut Parker (long-time leader of the SLL) and Klara Lichtenfels (leader of Solidarität) agreed to combine forces in preparation for the 4623 elections.
