Democratisch Nederland, anglicized as Democratic Netherlands, is a political party in the Netherlands. Founded on November 17, 2010, it has consistently been one of the largest and most influential parties of the country. It describes itself as a party of democracy, freedom, transparency and responsibility, where everyone is important and nothing is taboo.
Democratisch Nederland was originally founded in the Netherlands on Day 1,092 of the New World. The following citizens were involved in the party's original founding:
Most of the founders came from the Libertarian Social Democrats, whereas Dennis Baks was a former member of Iron & Wine. The party ceased to exist after a succesful PTO in December 2010, followed shortly after by the conquest of the Netherlands by Poland.
Because of various successful PTO's carried out by a Croatian feminist group, all Dutch parties united in the Verenigd Nederland political party in December 2011. This one party system eventually came to an end due to disagreements over the April 2011 Presidential elections. Verenigd Nederland was subsequently sold by public auction. On April 8, 2011, it was bought by a group of former DemNL members and rechristened as Democratisch Nederland. The following citizens were involved in the party's refounding:
Since its re-establishment, Democratisch Nederland has become a force to be reckoned with in the Dutch political landscape. It has been the largest party in the country for a long time, being the second largest behind The Dutch Progressives for a few months in the beginning of 2012.
Since December 2010 (former) party members Andreas Isaksson, Daniel Parker, ArtemIvanov, ElGorro, Joep O, Mattio, Kimberly McCullouch, RikW, MaartenW, Willem The Conqueror and have been elected as President of the Netherlands on a Democratisch Nederland ticket.

Throughout its history, Democratisch Nederland has used several logos, all but one of which were designed by Viglius.
The manifesto of Democratisch Nederland was laid down in the party program for the April 2011 Congress elections.
Democratisch Nederland is a party with an open mind on all fronts. Nothing is taboo, everything can be discussed in an open and respectful manner. Nevertheless, DemNL has some core values, which have their effect on its positions. Freedom, transparency and responsibility are considered of paramount importance. We also stand for the right to self-fulfillment, and we will safeguard the options for this and expand them where possible. The state serves the citizen, not vice versa.
As the name Democratic Netherlands suggests, democracy is an important achievement for us. Every vote counts, and it makes no difference if it is from a youngling or a veteran. Anyone can contribute. Our party attaches more importance to ideas than to individuals or personalities. It will be determined in the political arena which ideas work best for our society.
Democratic Netherlands is not confined to a political movement nor is the party bound by unassailable dogmas. We think of ourselves as pragmatic, and we will renounce names which imply something else, no matter whether they are tacitly assumed or loudly voiced.
