The Dorvish Social Nationalist Party (Dundorfian: Dorvisch Soziale Nationalistische Partei; Lorman: Dōrviskas naciōnalitāti perōnewingi pārtija) commonly called the SNP is a major political party in Dorvik it is known for its nationalist and conservative agenda by leading political experts; some have even gone as far as describing the party as a far-right political party. The party was founded on March 23rd, 3283 after the national conservatives captured several of the leadership positions in the Dorvish Imperial League and wanted to reverse the outward monarchist position of the party.
Sigmund von Drechsler the former Chairman of the Dorvish Imperial League was the acting as the leader of the DCP while it underwent the full transition with the National Elections Council (Dorvik) to become a recognized political entity. In 3284, its first national election, it was chaired by Gotthilf Siegel. In November of 3387 the part re-registered itself a national political organization after dealing with a minor internal row involving the absolving of the Dorvish National People's Party. Felix Böhm stepped down as chairman and appointed Yaroslav Markovic as the new party chairman, with Simeon Antonov becoming the deputy chairman. The party continues till this day, it has gone through periods of activity and collapse, most of the time the Social Nationalist would find themselves reverting to regional elections in the wake of a Federal collapse.
The Dorvish Conservative Party would survive until its eventual collapse and subsequent transformation of the Dorvish Social Nationalist Party on March 23rd, 3480 after the return of the House of Faust-Essen and rise of an autonomous, left-wing nationalist movement in Westmark. The Social Nationalist Party is dedicated to the ideology of Social Nationalist, a syncretic political ideology developed by Joachim von Petrov, a descendant of Raymond Petrov. The party believes in a strong central government and a hands off economic policy, however party secretary for finance, Dr. Hartmann Schreck is a noted state capitalist and is an influence on the party economic ideology. It is also known that the party supports the Reformed Protestant Church of Dorvik out of politics as the party is strictly secular.
The Social Nationalist Party was at point succeeded by the All-Dorvish League and upon its refoundation in July, 4631 took on many structures of the ADV. The SNP has gone by several other names temporarily such as the Dorvish Conservative Party (Dundorfian: Dorvisch Konservative Partei) and the Free Conservative Party (Dundorfian: Freikonservative Partei).
The Dorvish Conservative Party was founded on March 23rd, 3283 after Gotthilf Siegel, Hartmann Schreck and Stefan Radkov disbanded the Dorvish Imperial League 3 days earlier, however they allowed the League to continue due to it holding seats in the People's Chamber. The party saw itself as a counter to the other nationalist party, the Dorvish Party. Gotthilf Siegel wanted to set the party up along the lines of a Pan-Dorvik right-wing nationalist populist party, giving a majority of Dorvik a new outlet to express their issues and ideas. Stefan Radkov was a leading member of the National Front of Mothin, a nationalist party in the Mothar State Assembly and Hartmann Schreck was a member of the unrecognized Dorvish People's Party. Maxim Lagounov was the fourth leader, who was killed in a skiing incident on March 22nd was the party chairman of the Movement for Dorvan, another nationalist political party in Dorvan. The four men eventually met each other through conferences as members of the Dorvish Imperial League and their rise through the party ranks eventually transpired in their ascension to leadership and the foundation of a new political party.
The party fared well in its first national election winning 41 seats in the national legislature. It first entered a coalition with the Dorvish Republicans and United Dorvik a coalition of right-wing parties to combat the growing influence of the Dorvish Party, a radical left-wing socialist party. Since its first national election the party has often sided with the Dorvish Republicans and the United Dorvik party both of which have similar ideologies to the party. It steadily increased its hold in the national legislature in October 3287 by winning 57 seats. Director of Party Organization Marcellus Unterbrink also proposed a new electoral reformation for Dorvik and the National Elections Council (Dorvik) adopted the measure giving Dorvik a set-in-stone national electoral district for the first time since 3000. Unterbrink was also responsible for proposing the legislation to create a more advanced regional legislature system which was unanimously approved by the national legislature.
In 3290, 3293 and 3294 the party increased its seat holding each time. In 3294 after the disbanding of the Dorvish Party, the Dorvish Republicans and the Green Left Party only two parties remained and the Dorvish Conservative Party took 329 seats in the national legislature, the first to have a supermajority since the Dorvische Volkspartei (Dorvish People's Party) during the Dorvish Reich. However despite deep ideological differences with the New Socialist Economy Party, Gotthilf Siegel relented and allowed them into government by giving them a minor share of the less important ministries except he gave them the Ministry of Finance as a compromise to their acceptance of the government. In early April 3296, Siegel stepped down from the position of Director-General of the Artanian Union and allowed Artanian Federal Democrat, Dominik Riese to be elected.
Siegel set out on a policy of reform and security in Dorvik with Marcellus Unterbrink, the Minister of Internal Affairs. Siegel's government approved the creation of the Dorvish Security Service, a domestic intelligence agency dedicated to protecting Dorvish and foreign officials as well as acting a defense against homegrown terrorism. The reformation of the Special Intelligence Service (Dorvik) into the Foreign Intelligence Service (Dorvik) gave the President a much more powerful role in international affairs including the addition to the Dorvish Constitution that the President was now Commander-in-Chief of the Dorvish Armed Forces not the Dorvik Joint Chiefs of Staff which had operated outside the normal bounds of the government of Dorvik. Siegel realized that the additions to constitution would further cement Dorvik as a powerful republic.
Siegel continued his reform and announced major changes in the makeup of Dorvik, helping make many of the new laws very conservative. Slavkov, the partys deputy chairman and President of Dorvik was responsible for brokering a deal with Vanuku on an arms deal with would permit the new monarchy the equipment to defend itself against the rise of radical republicanism which sprouted up all over Terra due to the rise of the Alliance of Terran Republics. Dorvik, despite being what many claim to be a "pioneering republic" has sided with Hulstria, Vanuku and Luthori in their defense against radical republicanism. Slavkov noted that "Dorvik has always sided with order, peace and stability those who seek to undermine it, no matter how good their intentions, are enemies of Dorvik. We cannot permit radical militant republicanism to continue unchecked, we understand the yearning for freedom that these nations have for others but if the people do not democratically choose to become republics then it is senseless to even speak of democracy." Slavkov is a man behind the recent surge in Dorvish internationalism, many within the party openly support his moves despite the common policy of "Dorvik first, Terra second."
The party continued to dominate the political landscape of Dorvik and went through three other leaders after Siegel stepped down. Felix Böhm took over the party on July 8th, 3338 and immediately setout to remove the final vestiges of Communist rule in Dorvik. Formally, on April 7th, 3338 the Dorvish Federation was declared. Diederich Schnur, the former President of the People's Republic of Dorvik stepped down and asked that Felix Böhm replace him, the People's Chamber agreed and Böhm took over as President. Böhm brought his new constitution to the People's Chamber and they approved it unanimously, permitting Chancellor Sternberg to step down. The vacancy left the Chancellors spot open and Böhm reformed the position to be the Minister-President of the Dorvish Federation and appointed Radoslav Krastev as the first Minister-President of the Dorvish Federation.
Under Böhm's direction, Dorvik transformed from a run-of-the-mill parliamentarian democracy to a semi-presidential republic. The transformation is seen as popular with the people. In May of 3349 the party was shocked at the assassination of it's deputy party leader and the Dorvish Minister-president Radoslav Krastev. It was the first assassination in party history and caused a major shockwave within the party, especially those who were close to the late Krastev. Nika Romanov the former Director of the Dorvish Security Service became deputy party chairman and Minister-president of the party. Bohm expressed his concern about the safety of the parties leadership alongside the nations leadership, prompting the party to increase it's stance on security and pass the Federal Budget Act of 3349 which increased the defense budget by 5b DDO.
Collapse, merger and return
The party continued to experience varying levels of success under Böhm. It was in November of 3387 that the party returned to national politics after re-registering with the National Elections Council to be a national political organization. Prior to the re-registration of the party it experienced an internal row regarding the absorption of the Dorvish National People's Party, a rather excessive right-wing political formerly participating in national politics. Böhm's absorption of the party was his last serious action before stepping down. In the corresponding election Yaroslav Markovic was elected as Party Chairman and began to conduct party business once again on the national level. Markovic is a noted Dorvish nationalist from Dorvan, he joined the party as an idealistic officer and quickly climbed the party ranks eventually becoming Deputy Secretary for Defense under current Secretary for Defense Yevgeniy Konstantinov.
Markovic in his speech to the Executive Committee and to the party expressed his pride and patriotic fervour when it came to seeing the Dorvish people rise to the top and re-assert themselves as one of the pioneering republics in the world. Markovic's speech was met with high praise even from nominal critics of the party. Markovic is seen as a popular figure in Dorvish politics, some political experts have claimed that he was elected to help the party return to dominance and once that occurred, they'd switch him out for a more favorable candidate. In the parties first election since reforming they returned with a powerful showing, earning 363 seats in the Federal Assembly and capturing the Presidency. President Markovic spoke to the nation and addressed the citizens that the party would ensure that the nation would once again be re-vitalized underneath the leadership of the party and all those from the Alliance of Dorvik.
The Dorvish hadn't been involved an international crisis's since the diplomatic row erupted with Gaduridos, Statrica a former colony of Zardugal came under the watchful guidance of the Dorvish government. Statrica was granted it's independence after the Great Dovani War with the Peace Treaty of Port Tackstov which granted Dorvik the responsibility of overseeing the transition. The area of Statrica was heavily dominated by former Deltarian exiles which had long agitated for independence. Radical members of the Statrican ethnic group formed the Statrican Volunteer Guard, an ethnic paramilitary group which went to conduct a war of genocide against all non-Statricans including Dorvish, Hulstrian and Lourennan nationals residing in the country. President Markovic took a hard-line stance against the Statrican Volunteer Guard and the Dorvish Internal Troops were sent to handle the genocide. The crisis in Statrica ended in 3391 after the Dorvish Internal Guard finally eliminated and captured the leaders responsible for the creation of the Statrican Volunteer Guard. President Markovic and Minister of Internal Affairs Tase Sokoloff were lauded as heroes by the Statrican people and were awarded the "Order of Stjepanic" which is the highest award possible in Statrica.
Markovic took a further interest in protecting Artania when he applauded the cultural movement in Kirlawa, the Kirlawan National Alliance which sought to return the Artanian language and Artanian values to the nation as it is under the boot of a general Terran culture which has afflicted so many nations.
Late 3300's Coup
Foundation as Dorvish Social Nationalist Party
On March 23rd, 3480 what would be the 197th anniversary of the foundation of the Dorvish Conservative Party former ranking member of the Dorvish Conservative Party's youth organization, Conservative Youth Association, Vester Reiter announced the formation of the Dorvish Social Nationalist Party. The partys foundation was rooted in the similar ideology of the Dorvish Conservative Party and believes in many of it's predecessors ideals however plays off the nationalist tendencies of the Dorvish people. In his opening speech Reiter announced that the Dorvish Federation would return at all costs, even his own life to ensure the domestic tranquility and peace in Dorvik from the monarchist and secessionist. In the opening months of being re-founded the party attracted many members of the typically conservative organizations such as the Dorvish Army, the Federal Security Service (Dorvik) and the Dorvish Air Force.
In the parties first elections in March 3481 the Social Nationalist Party won 202 seats in the Diet, 20 seats in the Federal Council and was able to form a government with the Royalist Party of Dorvik. Chairman Vester Reiter became the Federal Chancellor of the Kingdom of Dorvik the first member of the Social Nationalist Party to hold the title. The party competed in elections and continued attempting to overthrow the monarchy but eventually the party collapsed after internal pressure piled on at the failure to win the government over from the Royalist Party and Mothin Autonomy Movement. Reiter formally announced the dissolution of the party on January 1st, 3494. On March 23rd, 3498 the party was reformed under former student and youth member Bojidar Maksimov. Maksimov who proudly boasted that the Social Nationalist Party would restore the Federation and remove the fake monarchy which has ruled Dorvik since it's inception.
In October 3500 the vote officially passed that ended the monarchy in Dorvik, the Federal law on Constitutional Reformation passed with a 381-119 vote. Chairman Maksimov stated that it was a right step forward in bringing Dorvik back into the fold. In his speech to the Federal Assembly Maksimov stated that Dorvish history now had to deal with a petty stain on it's reputation and that the Vinisk family should be ashamed of themselves. Historically the Dorvish Conservative Party and the early Social Nationalist Party had strong ties to the Vinisk family which often supported them, however after Maksimov met with the former king Otto V, the two agreed that they would part ways as the family had fallen away from the ability to accurately judge politics. In August 3501 the Federal law on Administration Reformation passed and restored the republican structure to Dorvik once again. Maksimov was appointed acting President and Arndt Stuber, who had been the final Federal Chancellor became Minister-President. The two made a join speech in which they lauded the populace for their efforts and stated that they would continue attempting to hold their mandate.
In this time the SNP supported the Imperial National Party (Dundorf) in the Fifth Dundorfian Civil War. Prior to the election of the SNP into government the SNP used it's connections in the Reiter-Maksimov Security Services to exert its influence and assist the INP. In the Dorvish general elections of 3503 the SNP lost to the Radical party which formed underneath Arminn von Bismarck, former ally of the Dorvish Conservative Party. Maksimov lost the presidency and Stuber lost the Minister-Presidency, but the SNP retained several prominent political positions within the Federal Council of Ministers as well as the State Minister-Presidency of Largonia.
The SNP continued to work with the Radical party and carry on as usual, the Radical Party was focused more on domestic policy and the SNP was given free reign to assist in the foreign policy field despite being an overtly nationalist party. The Radical Party eventually collapsed and the SNP was left to be the sole party in Dorvik until the SNP folded in 3541 due to lack of democratic mandate. The party was eventually reformed in 3594 to combat the rising monarchism in the country which had again been restored to a kingdom underneath a family of the non-Vinisks. The von Vinisk family called upon the SNP to support them in their question for restoration to the throne or seeing the Dorvish Social Nationalist restore the Dorvish Federation.
As they re-entered the country as a political force in their first election in May 3598 the SNP grew to be the second largest party in the Diet and captured the positions of Minister of Defense and Minister of Internal Affairs alongside the Democratic Party. The SNP was directly involved in the foundation of the Collective Cooperation Organization as a respond to the Northern Artania Crisis of the 3590s which nearly saw the continent go to war. The SNP was quick to engineer support for rapid re-militarization of Dorvik and ensure that the Dorvish allies were well prepared for such an endeavor. The SNP was quick to manage to secure war games with Indrala and re-build its military capabilities with Kafuristan, a longtime Dorvish and SNP ally.
Resurgence in the early 3700s
The collapse of the Dorvish Federation would eventually prompt the Social Nationalist to reform, the Social Nationalist would reform underneath Aegidius Fuerguth a wealthy Dorvish businessman who had previously ties to the party as it focused on its efforts in Miktar, Largonia and Kordusia. Fuerguth gave rousing speeches and after much debate, he entered the party with the Federal Elections Commission. The party would be registered for the coming 3785 Federal elections. The Social Nationalist Party was focusing on rebuilding the Dorvish state and returning the Dorvish Federation, something that he has stated in many of his speeches.
zu Völksau era
Under pressure from various sources (including political, economic and military sectors) the SNP reformed underneath Saphrax Franz zu Völksau as Party Chairman. Despite the rather sudden departure of the SNP from the Dorvish government they had remained active as a political organization which didnt stand in elections. The SNP registered with the Federal Elections Commission in January 4193 and was successfully registered as a political party by February 4193.
In their first election since their departure from Dorvish politics the SNP won 28 seats in the Federal Assembly in December 4193. The SNP competed in the December 4197 Federal Election and won 51 seats, after the disappointing showing the SNP folded temporarily and resigned their seats as a means to re-organize. The SNP re-organized underneath as a Federal political party again underneath Saphrax but this time with a more concentrated effort. Regismund Dietmar von Rohr-Mauss launched a massive campaign to reform the Armed Forces of Dorvik and was successful and in 4198 the Federal Assembly passed his reforms, a major coup for the SNP and Regismund was announced as the new Inspector-General of the Federal General Inspectorate.
zu Völksau worked to build legislation across the board, using a wide range tools available to him he worked to reform various parts of the Federal government. zu Völksau was the brainchild behind the re-work of administrative divisions of the Federal government and overhauled the entire administrative structure of the Federal government. zu Völksau also worked to get Joachim von Bahr elected as the Permanent Representative to the World Congress for Dorvik. Chief of the Party Court and Party Secretary for Justice Torsten Saxer worked closely with zu Völksau to build a legislative agenda that would be pushed, the SNP focused on re-building state service and working to return many laws that the Dorvish Republic had previously held.
zu Völksau launched his Presidential bid in 4198 but stated that if he failed, he would back the Dorvik First electoral alliance's candidate from the Pragmatic Party. zu Völksau started to build closer relations with the Pragmatic Party as well as the Conservative Union while working to build relations with Forwards!, a Dorvish political party that was started in close cooperation with the SNP. Underneath the new foundation of the party the SNP continued to represent landowners, military and security members as well as leading industrialist and business men.
In the May 4202 Dorvish elections the SNP faired poorly but were able to form a coalition with the Conservative Union, the Pragmatic Party and the National Liberal Party and captured the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Trade and Industry. Shortly after the elections in June 4202 a General Council was called and Saphrax Franz zu Völksau stepped down as party leader and was succeed by a resurgent Octobrist candidate Alaric Arvandus von Rohr-Mauss.
von Rohr-Mauss era
Alaric Arvandus von Rohr-Mauss was the heir to the Petrov political dynasty and had already become popular within SNP circles because of his elder brother, Regismund Dietmar von Rohr-Mauss who served as the Inspector-General of the Armed Forces of Dorvik. Alaric immediately set out and appointed a team of dedicated Octobrist to fulfill his electoral agenda, the Octobrist tended to be more liberal conservatives, focusing more on international affairs then domestic politics. They believed in a free market economy with some regulation to ensure that the wealth divided did not grow and overall a relatively progressive face to ensure that the Dorvish people were taken care of.
Close to the start of Alaric's tenure as Chairman of the SNP the global economy began to experience a collapse, eventually leading to the Economic Crisis of 4202 which prompted the SNP to call on their most economic-minded leadership. Several SNP politicians formed the Dorvish Development Bank, the former Party Secretary for Finance Friedrich Augustus von Desidier took over the Foreign Economic Council as the General-Director and helped secure the Dorvish infrastructure with strategic investments alongside the Dorvish Development Bank.
The Dorvish Federal Election, May 4206 saw the SNP fair incredibly poorly, however Alaric placed his electoral team on the cutting block had they failed when snap elections were to be called in 4207 and the SNP turned around and captured 97 seats in the Federal Assembly, including their traditional support base of Dorvan, where they are traditionally the leading party. The SNP is attempting to form a coalition government with several other political parties. Underneath the Octobrist, their traditional stance of focus on international affairs shined through as they advocated for a return to Dorvik as members of the Artanian Union despite the attempts of the government to fear-monger the people into denying their place as the chiefs of the Artanian continent.
Formation as the FKP
Following an electoral defeat in November 4256 the General Council of the Social Nationalist Party was convened when Party Chairman Siegmar von Auspitz-Topol and Deputy Party Chairman Visimar zu Völksau announced that they were stepping down despite recent electoral success since the return of the Social Nationalist Party to Dorvish politics. Joachim Regismund von Rohr-Mauss, the current Reichsführer of the Volksdundorfische Cultural Association and long-time political ally Baldur Rödl announced their intention to stand for Party Chairman and Deputy Party Chairman respectively. Joachim's speech to the General Council included a radical overhaul of the Social Nationalist Party and a return to what he called "mainstream" political theory and that the SNP needed to adopt a new structure and work within the confines of new political thought. Joachim hails from the Octobrist political faction, something that the von Rohr-Mauss family founded and heralded as their "reform" within the party. Baldur Rödl served as Party Chief of the Free Conservative Party, a Liberal Conservative wing of the Social Nationalist Party that was active as a regional political organization. The two have been friends since they met at graduate school in Haldor.
The General Council elected Joachim and Baldur as Party Chairman and Deputy Party Chairman, their first official act was to replace all existing Party Secretaries and order a review of the structure of the SNP. The first move they made was re-branding the party as the "Free Conservative Party" something that Baldur had recommended as the SNP called a certain nostalgia from voters. Joachim then re-named his own post as Chairman and his deputies as Deputy Chairman, a move seen to move away from "Party" like title that had invoked some far-right imagery among opposition politicians. Joachim called upon old voters who had moved to other parties to know that the Free Conservative Party was there to represent them and that those dedicated Social Nationalist, that Social Nationalism would live on in a new era.
47th century return
The political situation in Dorvik in the months leading up to July, 4631 the leadership of the All-Dorvish League discussed the posibility of returning. Elements within the ADV called for the restoration of the Social Nationalist Party while others wanted to see the ADV compete again at a national level. The decision was made underneath the leadership of Florian Regismund von Rohr-Mauss to take the ADV and merge it back into the Social Nationalist Party in June, 4631 and the SNP became a dominant political force once again with its membership, coffers and leadership integrated and re-invigorated. It's primary opposition was the Communist Party of Dorvik which had taken a largely isolationist stance and had, according to now-Chairman Rohr-Mauss "...nearly set Dorvik back to the stone age." The resurgence of the SNP brought a new look, it had renewed its ties with the Independent Confessional Church of Dorvik, a branch of the Confessional church and had worked hard to bring women into the fold. Of the most prominent was Dr. Ida Kaplan, a Dorvish police doctor who had become a prominent leader within the "Women's Movement" within the SNP. Others include Angelika von und zu Gießen, a Dorvish astronaut and Ursula von Lÿndow-Sennhein a Dorvish business magnate who broke ties with her family to become a prominent financier.
The snap general election of March, 4632, the SNP won 44 seats in the Federal Council (as Dorvik was a Federal Republic at the time). The SNP included a program of restoring traditional, ceremonial authority to the head of state to be involved with the Dorvish Privy Council, the Dorvish body that grants and handles patents of nobility and more importantly failed to pass massive health care reform. The SNP were successful in capturing seats within the Council of Ministers such as the Ministry of Defense, the Ministry of Education and Culture, the Ministry of Science and Technology as well as the Ministry of Trade and Industry. While the SNP might not have captured the majority in the Federal Council, they were able to restore their influence over the Armed Forces of Dorvik and Minister of Defense Franz Anton von Rohr-Mauss, brother to the SNP leader, appointed Generaladmiral Domenikus von Lÿndow-Sennhein as the Inspector-General of the Armed Forces of Dorvik.
The SNP was instrumental in pushing for labor law reform, trading right changes and prohibiting party-based paramilitary organizations. Following the election of May, 4634 the SNP attempted to form a coalition with the Dorvish People's Party, the Middle and the National Action party; this failed as the DVP/DM/NA formed a coalition without the SNP. Due to the resilience and leadership of the SNP, namely Florian Regismund von Rohr-Mauss, the SNP secured a coalition with the Social Democratic Party, the Middle and the SNP. In this deal the SNP gained a Vice Federal Chancellor position, the Ministry of the Interior, the Ministry of Defense, the Ministry of Food and Agriculture and the Ministry of Trade and Industry. A snap general election only 2 years later in September, 4635 saw the SNP lose seats and come in 4th within the Federal Council with 115 deputies. A re-shuffling of the Council of Ministers saw the SNP gain the ministries of foreign affairs, interior, defense, education and culture, food and agriculutre, and trade and industry. The SNP also were key policy makers in restoring the Dorvish Republic following several decades as the "Federal Republic of Dorvik" which was seen as a central hallmark to the Dorvish.
In April, 4637 after a return to normalcy for most Dorvish citizens the SNP captured 288 seats in the State Council and party leader Rohr-Mauss became State Chancellor while coalition and politically all "Die Mitte" took over the Presidency. In July, 4641 coalition partner "Die Mitte" folded and left the SNP alone with the Communist Party of Dorvik, the two being bitterly ideologically different. The SNP luckily won the snap election of October, 4641 and were able to protect the vast amount of work that they had done.
The political platform of the SNP is syncretic, meaning that they consider themselves to belong to neither right nor left on the traditional political spectrum. They are affirmed to be anti-Communist (and by that nature anti-Socialist), they denote that Social Nationalism is a core tenant. They affirm that they are supporters of the current monarchy, believing that the restoration of the King of Dorvik is something that can be done or they could maintain the Dorvish Republic; either is acceptable to the party. They denote that they are psuedo anti-Capitalist, however are not entirely opposed to certain elements of capitalism and believe in a mixed economy. They appear to be conservative morally and socially.
Originally they were firmly supporters of the Northern Council, they supported the Artanian Union but are generally supportive of a new Artanian organization and believe that the Artanian Mark is the preferred reserve currency of the Dorvish state.
The SNP is a supporter of Pan-Dundorfianism, which is the collective belief that the Dundorfian people are all linked, a vast majority of Dorvish are considered to be Volksdundorfische which means that they live outside of Dundorf proper despite the vast amount of Dorvish who draw their linage back to Reichsdundorfische. The SNP is heavily involved in sponsoring Pan-Dundorfian activities throughout Artania and the world, including the Artanian Order and the Volksdundorfische Cultural Association.
Domestically the SNP focuses on several specific tenants that make up the ideology of Social Nationalism; the SNP believes in a strong military that plays a role in the protection of the Dorvish people and the Dorvish state. It is the belief that the military and the police force are to be of the highest moral character and at their very core is love for the country and its laws. SNP politicians have traditionally had close ties to the military, police and intelligence organizations in Dorvik due to this. The SNP promotes Dorvish Nationalism as a means to tie people to their land and the ancestry.
The SNP advocates for building of a strong, balanced and multifaceted economy through semi-regulated capitalism known as Dorvish Capitalism. The SNP focuses on a hybrid economy which has strong focus on ensuring that everyone pays their fair share of taxes, even corporations. The SNP at times has been called reactionary or socialist due to their protection of the Dorvish consumer but at times has showed protection for Dorvish business interest.
In the field of education the SNP believes that the government should foster investigation and problem solving while educating in a neutral light to have students question what they know, for instance debate teams and historical research societies are popular clubs at all levels of education in Dorvik, the SNP does not believe in standardized testing but has made laws that does require schools (mainly grammar and secondary schools) to submit tests and test data to provincial education officials to ensure that the highest levels of education are being given.
The SNP is focused on a republican form of government but does not entirely rule out the return of the Kingdom of Dorvik due to the close ties between the Nobility of Dorvik and members of the SNP, it does however feel that the people of Dorvik will decide what they want and if their will changes then it is up to them to call for a return to the monarchy and restore the House of Faust-Essen to the throne of Dorvik.
The inherit belief of Social Nationalism and the Dorvish SNP is the belief that the country must take care of its own before it focuses on international affairs, however the Social Nationalist believe that the two are linked due the globalization of the world economy. The SNP at times has taken a semi-isolationist stance as its predecessors but overtime, due to growing Dorvish influence and importance in international affairs, has become more acceptable to international affairs. The SNP has focused much of its time around supporting post-conflict and state building operations throughout the world due to the belief that a stable international order will permit a focus on domestic policies and prevent new de-stablization.
The SNP however supports Pan-Dundorfianism as well as the Artanian Union which was founded by the Dorvish Conservative Party, the predecessor to the SNP. The SNP supports a very Pan-Artanian stance and continues to support a democratic and politically tolerant Artania. The SNP and many SNP affiliated politicians and officials are actively involved in the Artanian Union and subsequent organizations that were once political organizations of the Artanian Union such as the Alliance of Artanian Nationalist Movements. The SNP is also a supporter of start-up attempts of a world organization focused on peace and stability, it has at several points lead these start-ups such as the Collective Security and Cooperation Organization which ultimately failed.
The Social Nationalist Party has overtime absorbed several smaller parties and political organizations that makeup the "internal" factions of the SNP, generally the party leadership draws from various "factions" of the party but overall the party has been dedicated to Social Nationalism overall. The factions also often compete in regional elections as allies of the SNP to ensure greater control for the SNP.
- Democratic Nationalist Party (Dundorfian: Demokratische Nationalpartei) - Westmark political party, remains active as the allied branch of the Westerland regional Social Nationalist Party in the Westerland Provincial Assembly. Perceived to be the more liberal wing of the SNP but adheres closely to most Social Nationalist tenants.
- Social Nationalist Dorvish Workers Party (Dundorfian: Soziale Nationalistische Dorvisch Arbeiterpartei) - Miktar and Kordusia political party, remains active as an allied branch of the Miktar and Kordusian regional Socialist Nationalist Party, collection of former far-right politicians and officials who were barred from entering the Social Nationalist party due to their rhetoric but has since become a stable ally of the SNP in the region. Traditionally more radical than most Social Nationalist but close monitored by the SNP party itself.
- Free Conservative Party (Dundorfian: Freie Konservative Partei) - Located throughout Dorvik, the Free Conservative Party brought together right-wing nationalist Conservative allies of the SNP and merged various conservative political organizations and parties together that otherwise would not be counted as Social Nationalist.
- National Democratic Party of Dorvik (Dundorfian: Nationaldemokratische Partei Dorvik) - Located throughout Dorvik, the National Democratic Party are nationalist liberal conservatives and conservative liberals who agreed to work together underneath the umbrella of the SNP.
- Freedom Party (Dundorfian: Freiheitliche Partei) - At the direction of former State Chancellor (4045 - 4049) Vithmiris Odacer von Faust-Essen the Freedom Party was formed of slightly more radical Liberal Conservatives as a means to control a portion of electorate and funnel them into support for the Social Nationalist. The Freedom Party has registered in Miktar where support for left-wing politics is higher due to more agrarian and poorer citizens.
