Res Belgica was the first largest political party in Belgium which was trying to be a neutral moderating element in a highly ATO/PTO polarized country right after its independence. The party is known for its pluralistic attitude to judge people based on their actions and not on their RL background, and for its preparedness to engage in constructive dialogue with all sides. Leaning towards the left wing of the political spectrum, Res Belgica is also dedicated to the ideals of solidarity and social assistance for those in need.

The party was taken over by shadowukcs early 2011 and was used in an attempt to bring more "lulz" to Belgian politics, and didn't return until Xgentis Lempereur, a former Res Belgica party member, restored the party to its former glory.
In January 2014 the party was PTO'ed by Aries Sun who was part of a group who was trying to PTO Belgium. The party was restored on November 2014 by nogex1 who took over Be Free party and renamed it to Res Belgica.

History

UK BRP period

After Party President Manong Rizal left the Belgian Revolutionary Party and Belgium altogether at the beginning of December 2009, Kheops became the new front-man as the highest ranked member and he started reorganizing the internal party structure right away. At that point, the BRP had about 10 active members. Shortly thereafter Belgium was conquered by the UK, and the BRP became part of its political landscape, seeking actively to gather young Belgian players who were now born in the regions of Brussels and Flanders under the British flag (Wallonia was still in the eUNl). This is also the period when the Social Department of the party was created with the purpose to support young Belgian players during their first days in eRepublik. A small influx of Flemish students was organized by Commissioner for Health & Social Services Aldous Zamiatin, and the small community became more numerous and more active, reaching a peak of about 45 members in early January 2010. In the meantime, all Belgian regions were in the possession of eUK.

Back in Belgium - NDF

In January 2010, Belgium reappeared on the map after a successful resistance war in Brussels. The man who had started the Resistance war as a personal project and with personal funds was a Romanian player unualibro, who claimed he only wanted to see Belgium become an independent and democratic nation, and he created the National Democratic Front party to achieve these ideals. Although many older Belgian players feared a Political Takeover, especially when literally hundreds of foreign players came to Belgium for the free citizenships, unualibro managed to gain the confidence of the BRP leaders by giving them key positions as a sign of his good intentions (he made NicknameFromRonny NDF's official candidate for Country Presidency and stepped aside to let uaithne become the Party President, leaving full control of the party in the hands of real Belgians), and most BRP members joined this new Belgian party. NDF managed to convince the general Belgian population that it had the best interests of Belgium in mind, and it was the only Belgian party in the Congressional elections on the 25th of January which had no support of foreign tactical voters.

Res Belgica

After the elections, which were decided by hundreds of tactical foreign voters, the old BRP core decided to open a new chapter in its history by renaming the party to Res Belgica in the early February of 2010, continuing its traditions of honest constructive dialogue, love of neutrality and special care for new citizens through social support. This has earned the party general respect from the representatives of other Belgian parties, and the activity and commitment of Res Belgica's leading members in Congress and in governmental positions has often been set as an example for others. Since February 2010 the party has almost always had representation in Congress, and in April 2010 Ragoth was elected by a landslide to lead Belgium as the first President from Res Belgica. Later Res Belgica's own MaryamQ and Sammy Tanghe held that position, shaping the nation in accordance with their views.

Role in Belgian Government

Res Belgica has had a large in Belgian Government since the parties beginning. But as of now, February 2012, Res Belgica has played a vital role in government. Res Belgica has the majority in Congress as of January 2012. They have had back-to-back-to-back presidents. Res Belgica also has been helping our young ones through MoHA, Minister of Home Affairs, and through the Belgian Training Academy by its Commander Nohjis and its 2nd Commander Bert_en_Ernie. Aldous Zamiathin has been running the Belgian Civilian Army as Commander for a while. Sammy Tanghe is the Commander of Belgium's newest MU, Belgian Foreign Legion. All these fine players have been playing a vital role in the Belgian Government for a long time.

2013 Situation

Res Belgica is still one of the biggest party's in Belgium and under the party presidency of Lily Jayne Summers the party slowly gained activity. Hand in hand the old veterans of Res Belgica and the new players worked on new ideas to get the party more active. Res Belgica changed the official forum and plays an important role in the politics of the country. With the recent upcoming of other party's Res Belgica lost his first place although it seems still the most active one. For the February 2013 Congress elections, being 3rd largest by size they came out first by the number of elected Congressman, seems that the renewed campaign for the elections paid off. For the March 2013 elections, some members of the other party became members and are tried to become PP, and they lost with only 4 votes.
May 2013: the new logo is presented and the party page gets changed.
July 2013: El1teBE puts a "Res Belgica Council" in place. Their first job will be choosing the candidates for the Congress in a specific order, following a new, more democratic system of points and votes[2].

The End

Res Belgica was dissolved in August 2018, when its last member and longtime party president boer jan died. As the party was only a shadow of its past self and only have a member of two, it got dissolved on the same occasion as it's longtime president boer jan died.

Party Ideals

Res Belgica, a party for the people

In this document, we will try to explain what this party stands for and what our plans for the future are.

The most important thing is Res Belgica is a party for the people that want to contribute something useful to this country and its citizens. We encourage our members to take responsibilities but only when they are certain they will be able to invest the right amount of time in it. We believe in the initiative, you don’t need tons of experience to work for your country, doing something is the best way of gaining that experience. Of course, we do not believe youthly enthusiasm is all you need, we have more than enough experienced players to provide information and help when it is needed. Thus, the most important points of our party are initiative and activity.

A good organization needs good communication. Whether it’s the government, a company or a party communication is a foundation for every action. Therefore we at Res Belgica believe in openness in our official messages. Every citizen has the right to know what is going on so he or she can make a funded opinion about the welfare of our country. Keeping secrets is not a good way to govern, it will only lead to mistrust and hostility and that are two things we are better without.

Ever since the rebirth of this nation, it has been tainted by dirty politics and people spreading hate for others. We have never joined those actions, we don’t believe in winning the people for us by spreading hate about others, we try to win citizens for our cause by being fair and working hard for it. That should be the core of every government. This leads us to the third important milestone of this party: Integrity. We stand for fair politics with the cooperation and without hate. This way we will do what is best for our country and not only what’s best for us. In Res Belgica, you will not find any secret moves, but only openness and contribution by everyone.

Our last milestone is our social work. This party has always done everything it could to help those in need. Even when Belgium wasn’t on the map yet we did our best to support young Belgian players in this game and we have never stopped doing it. Our social program is there to distribute food to those in wellness trouble and providing basic information to new players so they have the chance to grow in this game. On top of that, we have our own company whose task is to allow new players to work at a very nice wage for a low skill level: Fair trade Food. The social program will always be an important part of this party and we will never abandon it to free recourses for personal success. New players deserve every help they can get.

Apart from all those political milestones, we at Res Belgica don’t forget we are playing a game. Therefore we promote one thing above all: making a lot of fun and I sincerely believe we are succeeding in that.

Created by Rithulme, former party president of Res Belgica.
