All-Union Humanist Party
The All-Union Humanist Party, originally founded as the All-Union Revolutionary Front, is the primary political party of and the primary driving force behind The Union of the Republics of Zeed. A close ally of the Nationalist & Humanist Party, the ideals of human supremacy and nationalism, with special attention to the unique circumstances within Zeed play a primary role in the founding principles of the Front. Founded by Vladim Vasyliovich Timoshenko nearly 8 years prior to the September Revolution, the Front has held that horrendously corrupt and abusive monarchy was caused by the results of the power vacuum of the Post-Nuclear Horror, the abuse of the people and lands of Zeed by said monarchy, lackadaisical politicians and the spread of non-human influence throughout Micras.

The origins of the Front can be traced back to a small gathering of ten people, originally lead by Fedor Akmalovich Abdulin, a Ḡurid of Zurvanist faith living in the then Voivodship of Ruthenia, now the Ruthenian Republic. Him and his group had grand ideas of a more democratic society, more firmly rooted in the ways of the Harmonious Society - something they considered now lost in the opulent monarchy. Although not at the time using the now familiar name, among the ten was Timoshenko. Originally, so as to avoid the prying eyes of counter-revolutionary elements, they used the name "The Harmonious Debate League", touting themselves as a very exclusive think-tank for purely religious ideals. Abdulin, however, was generally a man of inaction, and rarely envisioned any sort of revolution as the answer to the problems of Zeed's society. His vision was one of quiet infiltration and subversion through purely legal means.
Eventually, this inaction and slow paced process led to his resignation as head of the Debate League in the spring of 1675. Timoshenko, a much more vocal and outspoken member was elected by the now growing organization of some 70 people in the capital of Rusjar. Although outspoken, he still saw the utility of using an innocuous name during a time of paranoia among government officials. It was during this time, however, that Timoshenko saw the need to more actively engage the public at large, instead of keeping their ideas inside of the organization. Unable to find printers willing to be seen producing their materials - by the winter of 1675, the organization had managed to acquire some antiquated printing equipment. Running on old computers and black-and-white laser printers, they began producing their own leaflets.
Several were arrested for distribution of subversive material, including Abdulin's son - Fariborz Fedorovich.
