The Federalist Party, whose members are popularly known as the Feds is a right-wing populist and self-described conservative political party in Abelden. It was founded by Michael Thomas Brazeau on 25 May 2017. Brazeau, who was shortly Vorsitzender for the Conservative Party of Abelden, served as the party's leader until his resignation and temporary departure from party politics during September 2017.[1] The party was briefly led by James Frisch, until his resignation from all federal and party posts in November 2017. Thomas Merrell took over as the party leader, and has led the party since.

The party is currently part of the Opposition in the Reichsversammlung, where it has 2 seats. Currently, it is fielding Thomas Merrell as its candidate for Voritzender in the December 2017 elections. It does not plan to field a candidate for the office of Stellvertreter, due to an agreement of coalition made with the Rhinoceros Party of Abelden.
