The National Party is the main centre-right political party in the Commonwealth of New Virginia. The National Party is a big tent political movement that is devoted largely to cultural, political and diplomatic growth in New Virginia.

History

The National Party was founded as the Patriotic League by Edward Jacobs shortly before the first general elections in opposition to the Free Democratic Party. After the elections the Patriotic League joined the national government to help build the nation, proving itself as a stable and responsible party. After leaving the government to build the opposition and the nation the party was reformed into the National Party.

The New Virginian Patriotic League was the National Party's predecessor
