The Knootian Green Party (KGP) is the largest political party. The KGP is oficially a green Party, but it represents most of Knootoss' centre-left, which is pacifist and anti-war, in favour of the welfare state and socially liberal. The party opposes the growing influence of the Order of the Invisible Hand and won the elections opposing the war in Tanah Burung. The party is in government after being in the opposition against a right-wing SLP/RCPK coalition for 8 years.
