The IFP believe in the power of capitalism and that a free market economy will more efficiently produce and distribute goods. We believe the citizen fee and minimum wage should set at a fair level to sustain new citizens until they reach level 6. We would strive to keeping taxes as low as possible while balancing the countries spending. The government should be accountable and produce a budget every month and stick to it. There should be transparency in government spending except for areas sensitive to national security.

The IFP works to Promote Irish Business and is dedicate to supporting new Entrepreneurs. We believe in the buy Irish first programs. Government intervention in business should be kept to a minimum and Freedom of choices should exist in the market. The government should assist business by providing loans to start and upgrade business. They should also provide data on business conditions around the world to give Irish companies a competitive advantage. Business should also be encouraged to start in only two strategic regions to minimize disturbances in case country is invaded.

It is the government’s job to control inflation by policy implementation. Government decisions should be made that do not dramatically increase or decrease the workforce and provide steady battles. The government should also monitor the amount of companies in each sector at each quality level to make sure there is enough completion and not an over saturation in the market place. Nationalization of companies should be used in absolutely essential cases only. The government should monitor competition and impose sanctions on any companies engaged in price fixing.

State companies should be run at full capacity, and used to provide jobs to the newest citizen in times when private companies are not hiring them. State companies should also be used to provide cross training to citizens in skills the private sector is not offering, to ensure the country has the right amount of skills. Private business should never have to compete against public enterprises. The products of state companies should be offered at a discount to new citizens.

To avoid large economic sways and create stability in the business cycle any changes to the tax system should be studied first to understand the effect and impact on industrial sector and citizens. We believe in balanced income tax verse Vat tax. Import taxes should be set to prevent foreign companies from dumping on the Irish market and driving domestic companies out of business. Import taxes should also be kept low for raw materials we can not produce and regulated for all other products to provide a strong market.

We believe in a fixed exchange rate in the monetary market. The state bank should maintain adequate reserves, tied to GDP, to fend off any attacks on our currency. Some of the national reserves should be earning interest in low risk investments instead of just sitting in the banks account.




The IFP believe several MU's better International Relations

PP Elections


After a PTO threat the previous month, and moomoohead's desicion not to run for re-election, the party for the first time held an internal vote days before the election. Initially 9 candidates put their name forward, but it ended with 4 names on the Internal Vote. IrishGawain won the vote narrowly.

Candidate Votes Percentage
IrishGawain 6 37.50%
Biker2716 4 25.00%
Elite C 3 18.75%
xXAbraxasXx 3 18.75%

IrishGawain went on to win the Election with 76% of the vote.


After a superb month of growth in the IFP, IrishGawain decided to work on his job in the Department of Foreign Affairs. Who would take over was a questioned asked by many, but no clear answer was found. Elite C was seen as the IFP's next big thing and was an all-round favourite to succeed Gawain, until, former CP of eIreland, Rikian1776 entered the race. It reduced Elite C's vote but not to the extent he would lose out. It wasn't until a week to the election when Eamon_de Valera, returing Irish Citizen, put his name forward. Rikian withdrew to give Elite C as much support as possible. Both candidates had plans to re-energise and re-awaken the party, but in very different ways. One wanted to encourage youth and progress to the party, while the other believed increasing numbers and Congress members would do the job. On polling day the party made their decision. They choose youth and progress with Elite C by a huge majority.

Candidate Votes Percentage
Elite C 19 81.50%
Eamon_de Valera 4 13.00%
Greneva Gate13 2 6.50%


On 31st December '12, Incumbent PP Elite C announced he would not be seeking a second term. After the creation of THE PATRIOTS the IFP began losing numbers, and no party member expressed complete interest in running for PP. Eventually Rikian1776 ut his name forward and the party officials decided to allow him be the next PP. No other candidate was put forward. A record low 12 voted in the election containing one candidate. Other possible PP candidates: IrishGawain asecondchance


This time around names were put forward much faster for the PP race. Within a few days there was 5 candidates on the ballot. But, upon the election of MikeBane as CP, moomoohead was appointed Minister for Foreign Affairs and withdrew from the race. Elite C began to rally support for his campaign and soon Releasethe Krakken withdrew to suppory Elite C. Ronisu withrew from the race when Rikian opted to run for a second term. It leaves Rikian and Elite C running for PP.


Candidate Votes Percentage
Rikian1776 17 65.38%
Elite C 9 34.62%


Began on good terms with Rikian out to win re-election. Releasethe Krakken provided a strong opposition. So too did Biker but he resigned a few days to go. On election day IRA Fighter suprising took 2nd with 7 votes behind Rikians 20. Releasethe Krakken after a dirty campaign to say the least won just 2.
