The Rhinoceros Party of Abelden (RPA) is a political party based in the Abeldane Empire. It was founded on 7 August 2017 by Max Pollack, who based it on the Rhinoceros Party of Jupiter. Though originally it was widely seen as a satire party, it eventually became a serious force in Abeldane politics, defining itself as a pragmatist party.

Its current leader is Horatio Eden, a former IPA member.[1] Eden is the current leader of the official opposition in the 7th Reichsversammlung, and the RPA is part of the official opposition to the Langford government, alongside the Federalist Party. So far, the RPA has only participated in one election, in August 2017.[2]
