The Democratic Party of Elwynn, also known as the Elwynnese Democrats, is an Elwynnese Aldricist national-liberal party stemming from the Elwynnese branches of Shireroth's Imperial Democratic Party. The party currently (1683 AN) has 2 members in the Council of Eliria, 72 seats in the Elwynnese Congress, 26 seats in the Majles, 50 seats in the Nordisketing, and 8 seats in the Miþuï. It currently leads the government of the Congressional Counties of Elwynn in a coalition with the Nationalist & Humanist Party and holds the office of Prince of Elwynn. Observers and political commentators have described the party as being both socially and economically liberal in ideology.

The current leader of the party, Helena Strand, has described it as being a "party of progress for the left and the right." Positioned in the center ground of Elwynnese politics, the Democrats ideologically draw upon both liberalism and conservatism, the latter due to the party's adherence to a more conservative strand of Aldricism. Different factions have dominated the party at different points in its history, each with their own ideological bent, some leaning towards the center-left and others the center-right. The Democrats initially opposed Elwynnese independence, instead favoring Elwynnese statehood within a reformed Shireroth. After Elwynn's statehood was confirmed, it pledged loyalty to the new state and received support from all levels of society displeased with the republican egalitarian direction Elwynn took. During this time, the party was colloquially nicknamed the "Imperial Remoaners" due to their original wish of remaining in Shireroth and "moaning" about it.

The party, more recently under the leadership of Strand, calls for constitutional reforms that favor a balance between unitary government and autonomous regions, stronger protections for civil liberties, deeper involvement in Raspur Pact and international affairs, and a more robust military. It favors a market-based economy that is supplemented with social welfare spending, lowe taxes on individuals and small businesses, and a government that is efficient and not overly bureaucratic. The party is internationalist, cosmopolitan, and strongly pro-Raspur Pact. The party is known for maintaining some significant conservative planks, such as maintaining close relations with Shireroth, financial restitution to former owners of loyal subjects and community servants, restoration of some noble privileges, and the establishment of the Kaiseress as a ceremonial head of state.

The Democratic Party of Elwynn is a member of the international organization for Aldricist parties, the Aldricist and Neoliberal Conference. The Democrats have very close strategic partnerships and political alliances with the Imperial Democratic Party in Ransenar and Shireroth. In the Elwynnese Congress, it usually cooperates with the Nationalist and Humanist Party.
