Notable Members: John Gill - Founder and Patron Saint. John Gill, an Earth historian that should have known better. His mission to Ekos was to observe, he took the gloves off and decided that National Socialism was exactly the ticket the people needed to save themselves. This is now considered a classic case of hubris. The fact that John Gill was from Earth is slandered as a Federation lie.
Mak Reising.- The Current Fuhrer. See profile.
Under the resulting Federation protectorate the party was outlawed. However the idea struck a nerve in the Ekosian heart and mind. The party met in secret for 80 years. They were instrumental in the warp drive project which got them free of the Federation yoke.
Once the Federation was out of the picture the Party revealed itself, claimed to be the author, in secret, of all that Ekos had that was good and keen, and claimed they could have done it faster if the Federation had not wanted to keep Ekos down. This line and several others got the Party back in power under the Fuhrer Mak Reising. Reising officially serves as the Head of the party council, and is technically replaceable, but he has built a cult of personality and is starting to see the council as an impediment to his proper rule.
