Here are the Australasian political parties for @ETGalaxy's Socialist Commonwealth of America DBRP. The Australasian Liberal Party is the main governing party of Australasia. It doesn't always take office, but it takes office pretty frequently, and it's generally considered 'the default' party of the country. It is fundamentally libertarian and pro-capitalist. Its left wing is more socially liberal, while its right wing is apathetic at best and paleolibertarian at worst. They mainly bank on being opposed to Syndicalism, and tend to be pro-business. Kind of neoliberal, mostly libertarian. Under the leadership of John Simmons, the Liberal Party has rigidly supported free speech - even as many people start to wonder about certain radical elements in Australasia. The Christian Unity Party is known for being socially conservative and economically social-democratic. Distributism especially is written into the party's platform, and the party has been accused by Liberals (capital L, as in the Liberal Party) of being Syndicalist shills. This is, of course, untrue, and frankly the CUP and Syndicalist bloc disagree on almost everything. That said, the slander is still common. The CUP tries to be kind and sympathetic towards people, despite being firmly socially conservative. "Love the sinner, despise the sin" is their modus operandi. For example, they support the criminalization of homosexual relationships and the legal enforcement of the gender binary, but they also support psychotherapists and work to help get queer people disowned by their family jobs. Under the leadership of Mary Birch, the party has embraced its Distributist leanings. The CUP is the main rightist party of Australasia, owing to the fracturing of its far-right base into the next two parties. The True Faithful Party is where the CUP members who opposed the Distributism of the CUP and their 'moderate' views on social issues went. They're quite small, but have a free marketeer wing and a Christian authoritarian wing. They consider the CUP to be shills for the Syndicalist bloc as well as being far too accepting of sinners for their own good. Perhaps thankfully, the current leader, Jean-Baptiste Pernet, has been running the party to the ground. Stories of Pernet's use of cocaine and hookers have absolutely tanked the TFP's already flimsy reputation. The Australasian Freedom Party is where the secular rightists who opposed the CUP's Distributism and religious backing went. They also, of course, oppose the True Faithful Party's failed attempts at theocracy. The Freedom Party supports a massive reduction in immigration, opposes most civil rights, low-key undermines Aboriginal rights, and supports a military buildup. The annexation of Tasmania is a major part of their platform as well. The main voting bloc of the Freedom Party is honestly a mix of neoconservatives and nationalists, and the conflict between those two factions makes an already small party basically impotent. Under the leadership of Milo Green, the AFP has become increasingly irrelevant in the political scene of Australasia, but perhaps new leadership might change the dwindling party's fate, especially if it can compare itself to Sun Cross Rising favorably. Sun Cross Rising is an 'identitarian national communist political party and activist organization' with a paramilitary wing. Coming from the extremist terrorist organization ATOMIC (Australasian Trailblazing Organization for Militant International Communism), Sun Cross Rising has attempted to poach supporters from the falling Freedom Party. It has also worked to benefit from backlash against the Liberal Party's laissez-faire economic politics. SCR has had to fight against it being linked to ATOMIC, but that kind of 'street cred' has actually gotten some people interested in their message. The party supports racial separatism and extreme social-democratic policies, with many in the party wanting to abolish capitalism outright. The party has a mixed view on the Socialist Commonwealth of America, seeing it as decadent but many party members like its economic system. Of the ATOMIC split, Sun Cross Rising is probably doing better than its left-wing counterpart organization. SCR's current leader is one Celia Fitzroy, and she's spearheaded the attempt to change SCR's image from terrorists to legitimate political figures who happen to have a paramilitary wing. It seems clear that SCR will either wilt into irrelevance or make itself mainstream-ish, one way or another. The Australasian Syndicalist Party is a big tent, encompassing everything from agrarian socialists to syndicalists proper to council communists and anarchists. That said, the ASP (No relation to the other ASP) is mostly Syndicalist. The party had its heyday decades ago, but due to government repression on the part of the Liberals, it has long since become completely irrelevant in terms of actual political action. Their current leadership is under Roy Williams. Williams is an older man who is thoroughly conventional, providing nothing to the party. The party itself has been broken by Australasian government efforts, and is essentially powerless. That said, the ASP is a common scapegoat for everyone from the Liberals to Sun Cross Rising to Christian Unity to the True Faithful Party. Everyone hates them, essentially. The Progressive Party of Australasia is the only real left-wing legitimate counter to the Liberal Party. The party advocates for neoliberal, capitalist economics and quite far left social values. The party once had a social-democratic wing, but they ended up either in the CUP or the ASP, and the ASP was broken by the state. The PPA has some sway, but frankly most people just vote Liberal. The PPA has, of course, won some elections, and has a solid voter base on the east coast, but that's about it. Under the leadership of Janet Flynn, the party has drifted slowly right socially, but many in the party strongly oppose this and Flynn's time running the party is coming to an end. The Anarcho-Transhumanist Party of Australasia is an odd duck. A social club for radical nerds as much as it is an actual party, the ATPA supports absolute acceptance of the right to modify one's own body. They work to provide abortions to people in need, they help pay for 3D-printed prosthetics, and they fund research into typical nerd transhumanist stuff. They're also anarchists, and as such are known for demonstrations, protests, and the like. They also feed the hungry and generally work to bring their pie-in-the-sky ideals to life. They have very few members, but nerds who lean left are often party members, as membership is quite cheap and comes with social benefits. They don't have a leader so much as they directly democratically vote for initiatives. The Freedom Party and occasionally Sun Cross Rising often try to hack or rig ATPA elections, to mixed success. The Kiloton United Front is not actually a party. It's an unapologetic terrorist organization, consisting of the left half of ATOMIC. Still, the relative mainstreaming of Sun Cross Rising, the Freedom Party, True Faithful Party, and to some degree the Christian Unity Party have meant that after the ATOMIC split its membership has spiked. They advocate for syndicalist revolution, though many in their group have councilist or anarchist sympathies. They consider themselves a united front, and wish to bring the whole system crashing down. Them and Sun Cross Rising often are known for getting into violent confrontations. That said, many in the SCR have denounced the KUF for their methods and their ideology. In some ways, the KUF seems as much a revenge tool for the repressed Syndicalist Party and the crimes of the right-leaning Australasian parties as it does an actual coherent organization. Under the new leadership of the Central Committee, the KUF has rapidly grown to attract new members, many of whom are afraid of the right and disillusioned with the Liberals and Progressives. That said, their strategy is iffy and their success is far from assured, to say the least.
