Beliefs

USDP isn’t a military party. It is a defense party. A member had not to be involved in the military to be in this party. The only condition is that a member had a strong set of beliefs that were common to the party beliefs:

  1. Stable Democracy: USDP supported free, fair and open elections for Congress, Party Presidency and Country President. Active and clean competition boosts activity, entertainment and fun. eRepublik is a game, it needs to be played.
  2. Soldiers in Congress: USDP supported soldiers getting into Congress. In fact, USDP primary target was to select congress candidates from the US Military. USDP goal was to have a qualified candidate in every state.
  3. Competitive Economics: USDP supported the consistent monitoring of our economy and its growth and health by studying the effects the new changes will have on the economy and working to build a tax plan and government involvement based on maintaining ourselves as a national power.
  4. Civilian-Military Cooperation: Some of UDSP leaders were civilians, some were members of EZC. As a civilian, you are just as important to this country as a soldier through paying of taxes, fighting in the battles as directed by the Department of Defense, and involvement in the political realm.
