Kingdom of Sorrenia
Originally, Martin joined and lead The Republicans, retaining its left-wing economic policies, and calling for the dissolution of the monarchy and restoration of a republican mode of government. Over time however, Martin began to soften his attitude to monarchism in Sorrenia, believing dissolution would not only be infeasible, but potentially harmful in the long-term to Sorrenia. As a result, Martin sought to moderate the party's manifesto in the run-up to the November 2018 election. Unable to convince the other leading Republicans, Martin resigned, stating he could no longer lead The Republicans in good faith.
Martin in turn joined the NDLP, his previous electoral opponents. He quickly became a vocal supporter of Konpantzia Thought, and though he supported the party's coalition government with the New Monarchists, he did attempt to move the government's economic policies towards the left.
Martin is a member of the party's Konpantzia faction, and works closely with the ideology's founder, Melseeq Seetoornah. He also associates with many of the 'yellows', a more left-wing body of the party.
