History

The Socialist Party was formed on June 10, 2011 when the Socialist Party of Falia merged with the Falian Democratic Party. Eric Perez, a former soldier in the Imperial Army, was elected the parties first chairman on the same day. The party was pushing for social and political reform in New Europe during its White Revolution. Now that major reforms have been made the party is focusing on its own organization and persuing alliances with other socialist parties across the community. In July 2011 it joined the Socialist Intermicronational.

Party platform

The current party platform espouses the goal of social democracy, which is seen as a vision of a societal arrangement in which freedom and social justice are paramount. According to the party platform, freedom, justice, and social solidarity, form the basis of social democracy. A coordinated market socialist economy should be implemented, and its output should be distributed fairly. The socialist party advocates a sustainable fiscal policy that doesn't place a burden on future generations while eradicating budget deficits. In social policy, the party stands for civil and political rights in an open society. In foreign policy, the party aims at ensuring community peace by balancing the interests of all micronations with democratic means. It is in favor of joining the Organisation of Active Micronations, instead of the Organization of United Micronations.
