Democrats of New Sweden is a liberal party located in Sweden. Created in December 2007 it's one of the oldest political parties in Sweden. It is currently also the biggest and most active liberal party in Sweden. Democrats of New Sweden often goes by the acronym DNS.
The Democrats of New Sweden favours free-thinking and belives that each individual is capable of making his or her own desicions. The party members are treated as an individual party, where there is no official party program to follow – other than being a liberal. But there are certain points where most members are in agreement of such as lower taxes and not condone of Sweden taking part in any wars that would rob countries of their independance and freedom.
This does not mean that this is a party slit in half. Quite the contrary; it brings members together as they are able to freely express their thoughts. The manifesto can be found here Democrats of New Sweden/Manifest

TemplarPaladin to Leon Pong
Democrats of New Sweden was created by TemplarPaladin in December 2007. The party quickly grew to be among the top five parties of Sweden, and have been ever since. After TemplarPaladin decided to leave the game the party was first lead by Cinc, followed by marten1000 and then Leon Pong. The party followed almost the same social liberal state of mind during this time, although Leon Pong decided to follow it a bit more. Also, during Pong's mandates both the activity and the amount of members grew.
The arrival of the Germans
For the party president elections of August 10, 2008, three leading members of DNS decided to run for the post. Karl Holm, a prominent figure of DNS who had been in the congress on behalf of the party. JosefStark, a well known citizen and also a prominent member of DNS who also had been sitting in the congress on the behalf of the party. And last, DKN, a German that had brought him and himself to DNS because of DNS promoting liberty for the Danish people and the German people. DKN won the election, supposedly because of his fellow Germans voting for him. It started a lot of external and internal debate. Although many prominent figures of DNS first disagreed with DKN leading them, they soon changed their minds and DKN's leadership was accepted internally.
Some external debates were however still being held. Especially one debate never left the air during DKN's mandate; why he wasn't acccepted into Regeringen while most of the DNS congressmen were. Unfortunately the leading political party at the time, Flashback Sweden, after having held Germany hostage under their extreme violence for months, still wouldn't trust DKN and the German people. It struck DNS hard not being able to have their party leader in Regeringen, and it was a huge set back for DNS and the German people.
