In Marea (officially In Marea - Civis Sinistram, Luthorian: In Tide - Citizens Left) is a left-wing party founded in 4098 as In Marea Possumus Facere in Selucia by Ethan Megalos and Athena Scudo, aiming to change the conservative politics that the Factio Conservativa had been applying in the nation, and to conduct the national anger into a political movement. Its official motto is "Potestas pro populi" (Power to the people).
It is currently the oldest active political party in Selucia, and the major historical party of the left in the nation, opposed to the historical right parties of Factio Imperialis or Factio Republicana, playing an important role in modern Selucian history.
In Marea supports the separation of State and religion, human rights, LGBT rights, environmentalism, social equality and social welfare.
It created the Selucian motto: Ave, Selucia! Quia nos fuimus, nos sumus, et quod nos sumus, erimus! (Because we were, we are, and because we are, we shall be!)
From 4100-4200, they held the Government of Selucia during 66 years in different periods (9 years Kyrian A. Flavius, 6 years Percy Lacoonte, 8 years Athena Scudo, 27 years Aelius Celer, 12 years Icarion Dadhelus and 4 years Artemisia Ventor). They also held the Head of State of Selucia for 41 years (23 years Ethan Megalos, 4 years Tera Pisthis and 14 years Hypatia Scafidi).
In the 43rd century, they have held the Government for 41 years (11 years Artemisia Ventor, 25 years Jerzyr Laskaris, 5 years Orion Sideris), and the Head of State for 37 years (15 years Cyro Aquila, 3 years Kyros Alanis, 4 years Arria Ivmarus, 8 years Spuria Vedrix, 7 years Petrus Viator).
The party was temporary disbanded in 4261 and restored in 4264.

It was founded with the purpose of representing and defending the interests of the working class and the youth during the Governments of Factio Conservativa.
It defends the separation of State and Religion, with most of its members and high representatives being openly atheists. They positioned themselves in favor of LGBT rights, igualitarism, feminism and abortion, as well as new forms of energy (reneweable energy). They are republicans and managed to change the name of Selucia from Regnum de Selucia to Res Publica Seluciae, as well as stablishing its current motto.
At the moment, most of its voters come from the judicial, education and healthcare systems, as well as young people.
The party is best known for its social policies rather than economical, being the party that restored all civil rights for LGBT citizens after the Factio Conservativa's dictatorship and the creators of the illegality of nationwide salary difference.
In Marea Possumus Facere was founded in 4098 by university students along with some teachers in order to ask for major changes in the nation's politics, after the Factio Conservativas turned the nation into one of the most religious and right-winged one. Under the motto "Novus saeculi, Novas ideas" (New century, new ideas), they joined in what was known as "The Left Council" in May 4098 and decided to concur to the 4100 elections under one party, which was finally called "In Marea Possumus Facere" (In Tide we can do it), in reference to the fishermonger origins of the nation and also to a mass of people moving forward to get the same. As it first surged as a protest movement, Factio Conservativas threatened to ban it, but pressure from different parts of the society calling for democracy kept them off doing it.
Athena Scudo, Ethan Megalos and Kyrian Aetius Flavius were some of the most well-known members of this protests. the first two were university students at the time of the first protests, and Aetius Flavius was one of the university teachers that encouraged the students to take part in politics if they wanted to change things in Selucia.
In Marea has been in the Government by absolute majority since their first appearance in the elections, in the 4100 national elections, until the 4115 elections, and came back to power in the 4119 elections. In the 4127 elections, they lost both the Head of State and the Government for the first time since its foundation, repeated in the 4131 elections.
After the 4135 elections, Tera Pisthis was named Consul de Popularis with the support of Simul Prorsum, and after a caretaker moment (4135-4136), Partis Laboris and Factio Conservativa were disolved, leading the remaining parties to form a government coalition and naming Aelius Celer as Caesar de Senatum, being the Caesar the Senatum with the fewest deputies in Selucian history (135 out of 750 possible seats). He is currently the longest sitting Caesar of Selucian history.
In 4223 it changed its name from In Marea Possumus Facere to In Marea - Civis Sinistram, after holding its worst result ever, to reflect better the new ideas of the party.
The party strongly opposed to the return of the Imperator, which happened however due to the support of Factio Fortuna, Partis Imperialis and Legionem Nationis. Short after, in 4261, the terrorist attacks in Korgana left Arria Ivmarus dead, which lead to the temporary dissolution of the party, deciding not to concur to the 4261 elections.
In 4264, the party became active again, with a totally renewed representatives, managing to achieve the first position in the 4265 elections and its best result in more than 20 years. Following these results, the party got the HoG for the first time in 50 years, since Artemisia Ventor left the office in 4215, ending the longest period of the party in the opposition (22 years), with Jerzyr Laskaris becoming the new Caesar of Selucia. He was reelected in 4269, and was in the position for 25 consecutive years.
After having bipartidism for many years in the nation, the apparition of far-right parties in Selucia in 4302 lead to a more hard position of In Marea in the internal affairs, being most of the times the leader of manifestations and main opposition of the conservative government, as a reminder of its own origins.
They defeated a fascist regime for the second time in their history after the fall of Fascist Regimen Immutata. For the second time, they also managed to overthrow a new Imperator, and Athena Gavrus became Consul Populi. After the bad results in 4350, Odysseus Scalas resigned as Caesar and Secretary of the party and was replaced by Argos Loukas, who became the new Secretary of the party and new Caesar of Selucia.
On 4361, under the leadership of Argos Loukas, salary breach in Selucia was declared officially illegal regardless of sex, gender identity, ethnic group, sexual identity, nationality or religion.
After losing the Government in 4378 due to the apparition of new parties both on the left and right political scenario, the party failed to make an impact in national politics, losing its influence until returning to leader of the opposition as second most voted party in 4386, and back to the first position in 4394.
In 4411, despite an internal crisis, the party achieved its best result since the mid 4300's, reaffirming the figure of its General Secretary and winning 4 out of 5 praetorships.
In 4441, Amatia Scipio became the new Consul of Selucia after more than 30 years with the party away of that position.
After the 4461 Selucian elections, the party got its best result in its history by amount of votes, and returned to lead both Consulships and four out of five regional governments, achieving another record in the 4465 elections.
Following the abolition of the Consulships, the party decided to eliminate the figure of the Leader, leaving the General Secretary as the maximum authority of the party.
After the 4473 Selucian elections, the party intensified its division with Factio Republicana, once coalition partners, and refused to form a new government coalition with them after the approval of the withdrawal from the LGBT protection Treaty with the votes in favor of the republicans and Factio Unitatis Patriae.
