The Swiss Socialist Society was one of the largest political parties in Icon-Switzerland.png Switzerland. It was also the premier left-oriented party of the nation. The party had savored a ravishing success in constantly increasing its membership and for having many active members. The Swiss Socialist Society was known for its communes and various social programs.

The party was founded by Monsieur Guillontine on November 11th, 2011 and dissolved on January 1st, 2012.

On November 11th, 2011, Monsieur Guillontine became the first Party Chairman.

The Swiss Socialist Society grew quickly in Swiss terms, mainly due to the fact that the Swiss Socialist Society was something different, with welcoming arms toward the public, encouraging creative ideas rather than bland simple plans. Many of the new members were newer players, born in 2011 and active for the first time. The Swiss Socialist Society has, and continues to constantly strive to establish equality for all Swiss citizens, as well as pointing out the flaws behind too much government which would ultimately destroy Switzerland.

The Swiss Socialist Society joined Comintern after the party's establishment. Monsieur Guillontine believed that it was important to engage the Swiss Socialist Society with the international organization because it was a place for far-left leaders around the world to discuss and plan for ways to spread left-wing values as well as have a unified force able to liberate regions and countries who seek help. Not only would this allow for the Swiss Socialist Society to draw the attention of far-left leaders from around the world, but also, now there was a way to increase relations with other parties who had the same views.

The Swiss Socialist Society was re-founded with four main principles to which the party strives to advocate:

1. Governance should be by the people for the people

The citizens of eSwitzerland are the reason there is an eSwitzerland. Governance by decree or fiat is unacceptable. Congress is chosen by the populace and should work and vote for the benefit of the majority. The government is also appointed by the people, and should also work for the benefit of the majority. Accounts, decisions, and actions by the congress, the government, and the Swiss Socialist Society should be subject to review. No citizen should feel that others are receiving hidden privileges or compensation. Important governmental decisions should be discussed and debated in an open forum before implementation, and decisions that affect the people should be decided upon by the people, either directly or by their chosen representatives.

2. All government, economic, and military activity should be voluntary

A core concept of the Swiss Socialist Society is that even when individuals or a group of individuals reject a request, the party accepts that it is the people's own choice to do so. The Swiss Socialist Society understands that although working for the common good will result in endless prosperity for the nation of eSwitzerland, the Swiss Socialist Society would like to stress that it is still the citizen who makes the decision. In addition, it is important to know that loyalty is earned and not to be enforced by oaths or penalties.

3. Competition must be abolished and replaced with association

The costs of production of labor consist of precisely the quantity of means of subsistence necessary to enable the worker to continue working, and to prevent the working class from dying out. The worker will, therefore, get no more for his labor than is necessary for this purpose; the price of labor, or the wage, will, in other words, be the lowest, the minimum, required for the maintenance of life. However, competition in eSwitzerland is soaring, resulting in only the strongest business owners to profit, whereas the weaker smaller players are left to spiral downward into debt. Therefore, the Swiss Socialist Society believes that in order to resolve this crisis, industry and all branches of production should be taken out of the hands of mutually competing individuals, and instead be turned into state-sponsored companies in which they are operated by society as a whole – that is, for the common account, according to a common plan, and with the participation of all members of society.

4. Those who contribute to the greater good should be recognized, which is its own reward

Selfless actions should be praised, but no member of the Swiss Socialist Society should demand or take differing compensation that is unavailable to the populace. Secret payments, kick-backs, salaries, compensation, all of these are anathema to fair and open government.
