The Social Democrats are a centre-left political party in Craitland. It is historically the most popular of the five major parties in Craitland, recording both the largest electoral percentage and largest number of votes at different points in its history, and has supplied six of the nation's eleven Prime Ministers so far.

Ideology

The party champions social democracy as its overwhelming ideology, supporting the mixed economy which has generally presided in Craitland throughout its history. The party's military stance has varied; while primarily neutral, it established the Craitish Defence Force and generated Craitland's membership in the USSO, but officially maintains a diplomatic foreign policy favouring non-interventionism.

The logo of the Social Democrats is a stylised Pelle rose; the national flower of - and endemic species to - Craitland. The rose is also a traditional symbol of the social democracy movement. The party's official colour is a crimson red, but white is often also prominent on campaign materials.
