The National Progressive Pact (NPP) is a coalition of various political parties that formed in 1957 as a power bloc in opposition to the establishment Republican and Democratic Parties.

Despite supposedly forming a singular power bloc, the NPP is heavily divided on many issues such as civil rights, foriegn intervention and political governance. This internal divide lead many political analysts to predict the pact's collapse. However, despite these divisions, the pact is united on the issues of expanding welfare programs, and reclaiming the territories lost by the US to the Japanese following World War II. Its success was demonstrated particularly in the chaos of the '58 midterm elections where it emerged as a direct threat to the establishment parties, particularly the Republicans and Democrats who formed the Republican-Democrat Coalition to prevent a NPP Presidency.

In-Game[edit | edit source]

As of 1962 the NPP has two dominant factions, The Progressive Caucus and the Nationalist Caucus.

The 1964 election will be the first in which a player can lead to a NPP Victory with Henry Wallace being the only candidate unless Robert F. Kennedy defects from the RDC.
