Created in January 2008 under the name Now El313ct Winners, The Unity Party is the largest party by membership in the United Kingdom with around 220 members. In version one height the party membership was around 800.

The party has produced nineteen UK Prime Ministers: Final Destiny, Malta_1990, Hassan Pesaran, GLaDOS, Mr Woldy, Karacticus, Jamesw, Iain Keers, Frerk, Artela, Kevy Kev Kev Junior Shabado, Temujin94, Thomas765, Kravenn, Talon Karrde, Magic Hereos, Jimbojoy, Bohemond4 and mwcerberus. It has also contributed a large amount of congress members, Ministers and Advisors to the UK. Party members have also contributed to the ATLANTIS, PEACE GC, Phoenix, Terra ONE and TWO alliances and various New World governments, with many of its members being renowned for their expertise.

Although the party went through a slump in July 2008, the election of Hassan Pesaran in September 08 proved to be a successful one and the party grew rapidly. Growing to the third biggest party in the UK behind UK Reform and the People's Communist Party, the election of Iain Keers as Party President in March 2009 prompted more reform and growth, overtaking the PCP and becoming the UK's second biggest party. Under the leadership of Karacticus in October 2009, the Unity Party finally overtook UK Reform to become the countries biggest party. Over the past three years the Unity Party has become synonymous with fairness, equality and support for new players. The Unity Party is currently led by Lord Farhan facing new challenges and rivals for pre-eminence. It is as of right now the top ranked party in terms of membership.


 The Unity Party is a democratic socialist party. It believes that by the strength of our common endeavour we achieve more than we achieve alone, so as to create for each of us the means to realise our true potential and for all of us a community in which power, wealth and opportunity are in the hands of the many not the few; where the rights we enjoy reflect the duties we owe and where we live together freely, in a spirit of solidarity, tolerance and respect.

Party Constitution

The Constitution of The Unity Party is best described as the guiding force behind the party. It defines us as a democratic socialist party and pulls us all together to get through tough times. It's definitely something everyone considering joining TUP should read.

See the Constitution for more details

The Council of Unity

The Council of Unity was first founded by former Party Leader Squiddy and is now a formally constituted Unity Party institution. The Council has had many different incarnations, as an executive body, a mini-cabinet style body and as a company management group. It is currently a group of senior advisers and ex-Party Presidents. Graduation as a PP grants you a position on the CoU and permanent ops (leadership) in our party IRC room.

The Council is purely advisory and exerts no power over the Party President (as executive) or the Party as a policy making entity.

Major Policies

The Unity Party was founded originally as a centre-left socialist party. It's ideals are focused on helping new players develop their game, on guiding the UK through it's difficult foreign affairs position and on redistributing power and wealth from the hands of the few to those of the many. The Unity Policies is the codified set of policies that as a party we push for and strive to achieve through elected delegates. Through over five years of gaming, the Party has led the UK through some of its most difficult periods. Despite our best efforts, populist and regressive movements from our political opponents have set back many of the policies we implemented. Here are just a few of the major policies brought in under TUP leadership over the past 4 years.

Professionalised Armed Forces

Before the Hassan Pesaran Presidencies in 2009, the UK army was mainly comprised of volunteer regiments. As such, there was no regular supply, IRC elites or other common features of the current armed forces model. In July/August of 2009, the government nationalised the armed forces, bringing 90% of all soldiers into government owned companies and beginning to supply based on the weapons commune model created by TUP. The changes resulted in a huge increase in damage, and the model was later copied by units and governments from all over the world. As a result of this nationalisation, at its peak the government employed almost one third (400-600) of the UK workforce in what was the largest commune since the fall of Pakistan.

Wellness Fast/Gifting Hub/The Unity Food Program

TUP has always had the welfare of young players at its heart. In the past, the cost of wellness was far higher than now, at about £1.20 per unit of wellness. It was also impossible to recover health using food, except at daychange. Many players found themselves stuck on low wellness. TUP has always championed government gifting schemes, from "Wellness Fast" (introduced under Malta1990 in April 09) to the Gifting Hub brought in by Mr Woldy in October 09. This was finally axed by a UKRP government in early 2011, but TUP has established The Unity Food Program to replace it. TUfP is entirely funded by the party and has helped hundreds of citizens who have found themselves stuck on low wellness.

House of Lords Abolition

For much of the history of the UK, it has been dominated by unelected elders. This was epitomised by the "House of Lords", an upper chamber which at its peak had similar powers to congress, but was made up of entirely unelected elder statesmen. They blocked many policies which looked to be radical, or against their politics. TUP eventually abolished the House of Lords in 2010, meaning that congress and the President are now the legitimate elected sovereign government of the UK.

Ireland

TUP has had a strong presence in our foreign policy historically, with many of the UK's prominent international figures being TUP members. Ireland was a difficult question, and one we considered long and hard (for about five minutes). Taking a leaf from the original 313 Parties, our policy on Ireland is: "Drink Beer and Invade Ireland".

History 2013

January

The Equalist is re-elected for another term continuing the alliance with the UKRP. Membership decline continues and the party determine to launch a concentrated rebuilding project known as ’60 days to save TUP’.

February

Iain Keers returns from Poland to run for Party President of The Unity Party easily defeating all other rivals. He starts rebuilding the party internally along with Talon Karrde and Bohemond4 who undertakes recruitment. The party decline is halted towards the end of February with a congressional victory for The Unity Party and the Unity backed Presidential candidate, Blue And Evil, handily defeats New Era’s Goku Jones.

March

In this month TUP’s numbers increase drastically under Talon Karrde completing the ‘60 days to save TUP’ program culminating in 13 Congress members + 1 for Political allies the Independent Alliance. March also saw the return to the number 1 spot overtaking the rapidly declining UKPP and saw the election of jimbojoy to the Prime Ministerial position. The party was stronger than ever internally and had gained many new members who would begin to step up and get more involved.

April

Ash Brandon a younger citizen was elected to the presidency of The Unity Party and, although TUP continued to remain in a strong place the position as number 1 was again lost when New Era, swollen with ex-UKPP players charged to the top.

May

Bohemond4 stepped up for a second term at the helm aiming to build stronger relations with other parties in the eUK and splinter ties between New Era and their allied parties. This included the creation of the first proper alignment with the UKPP and the cementing of ties through personal friendships with the PCP, WRP and UKRP. TUP continued to do well in Congress elected 12 MPs and numbers stabilised despite the drop in April. Mr Woldy was elected for his seventh mandate.

June

Many time before PP nebojsa.petrovic was elected beating the main rival furdelance. While The Unity Party did not return to the top spot it remained stable in membership. The congressional elections saw a return to 13 seats again and Bohemond4 running under the Unity banner was elected to the position of Prime Minister.

July

Under alittleC4 The Unity Party regained the top spot in the country winning the Congressional elections with over 31% of the vote and gaining 13 seats. The party along with most of the UK endorsed Carlini8 to run in the CP elections, an election he won comfortably.

August

CottonPicken stepped up to take over the running of TUP for this month comfortably beating mwcerberus. Under her term the party expanded in numbers and influence retaining the number one spot. During this month, second placed New Era would decline considerably leaving TUP uncontested for the top spot. Likewise, their satellite parties disappeared. Congress saw a loss of one seat, but the party retained the largest number of seats. The County President spot was lost narrowly to a coalition of all other parties beating TUP's Talon Karrde running WookieO of The Skatalites.

September

Following the defeat of Talon Karrde, TUP began preparing for the next month. Bohemond4 ran for his 3rd term seeking to promote new players to lead the party. He successfully kept TUP moving upwards and encouraged activity with new players getting involved. Elections saw The Unity share rise to 14 seats, the most successful election of the year. This was followed with Bohemond4 running for Prime Minister comfortably winning the 4 way race.

October

The Unity Party continued to remain strong under the leadership of Tialys Cypress, a young citizen. Although they would lose a seat in Parliament the Party remained a formidable force electing yet another TUP Prime Minister in the form of mwcerberus.

November

The Unity Party saw the emergence of a new leader in the shape of Lord Farhan, a former high-profile politician from ePakistan, as it's party president. Under his leadership, TUP regained the congress seat they lost in the previous month bringing their representation in the congress to 14 again and made it one of the most successful congressional elections of the year. They also managed to secure the speaker slot as TUP's SKQ62 won the elections with ease. Even though TUP fielded Invalidation, an old party stalwart, they narrowly lost the election to ChewChewShoe of the United Kingdom Reform Party, who had the support of almost every major political party in UK.

December

Following the treachery of ChewChewShoe, TUP emerged as the leaders of UK politics. Lord Farhan went on to win another election as PP with TUP gaining the Speaker seat and the highest number of MPs in the UK. With ChewCehwShoe locked out, Lord Farhan was elected to be the interim Prime Minister until he could be impeached. In late December Kravenn, a party stalwart, was elected as CP bringing stability back to the UK.

2014

January

Lord Farhan ran again for a third term in a row as Party President. Once again, The Unity Party took the most seats in Parliament and Lord Farhan gained the Speaker seat. Kravenn led the UK out of the, now defunct, TWO. Count Drakula was easily elected to succeed Kravenn.

February

After three terms Lord Farhan stepped down and old party faithful, Bohemond4, stepped up to run the party. He was also Count Drakula's vCP at the time. A reduction by one seat marked an otherwise peaceful February term, but this was offset by ESO voters supporting another party. The Equalist, TUP candidate, again easily won the CP election becoming the third TUP CP in a row.
