North American Conservative Party
The North American Conservative Party (NACP), was a political party in the North American Confederation. Descended from the New European Nationalist Party, the NACP was intended to reflect the right-winged beliefs of New European part of the Confederation. However, with few New Europeans remaining and none of them wanted to organize into a party, it fell on General Jacob Ramirez of the North American Army to found the part. Technically Ramirez had been a New European by the citizenship of the confederation but not by the latest ethnic New European laws. This factor convinced him to reshape conservatism in the North American Confederation, rather than have any racial policies it would simply take traditional values of American, Mexican, and Canadian cultures and forge them into a single party. The party became the majority party of the Confederation but disbanded following the abdication of the Emperor during the Micras Crisis which preceded the Interregnum.

Ideology and political positions
As the debate over the structure of the confederate government rages the Conservative Party is pushing for as loose a government as possible. It is met by opposition by the Commu-Socialist Party who is pushing for a more centralized government. And although it is in favour of a republican form of government it does support the monarchy. Some party members want a ceremonial monarch while others want one with real power, particularly over the military.
Party leaders want to impose some form of family and cultural values on North America. They believe that, once a government is fully formed, citizens should be patriotic to its leaders and country. As well as that states should internally expand their cultures and develop them to create greater diversity within the confederation.
Many party members wish to rebuild the military might of the Old Reich, a term often used by them to refer to New Europe. And use it to establish influence over foreign affairs. It is strongly believed by party members that the stronger your military the safer your nation is as a whole regardless of how it is used.
