The Realistische Conservatieve Partij Knootoss (Realist Conservative Party of Knootoss) or RCPK describes itself as 'Pro-freedom, Pro-strength, Pro-Market and Pro-Knootoss'. It is an economically conservative party with a socially liberal programme. It favours much higher defence spending while lowering taxes and eliminating traditional social programmes. The RCPK is in the opposition after having been in government for eight years.

New name

The Realistische Conservatieve Partij Knootoss (Realist Conservative Party of Knootoss) is as a split-off from the Conservatieve Partij (Conservative Party). The split occured when a manipulated Conservative Party congress elected the controversial far-right Dick Tator as its new leader, which eventually led to the Shadow War. After the Shadow War, the original split-off party replaced the Conservative Party, which was banned with its members imprisoned in Lavenrunz.
