* ''Labor Party'': There are two relevant stereotypes.
** Socially conservative proletarian union-member that only wants more welfare handouts and hasn't realized that Marxism is wrong. Will go on strike at the slightest provocation. Is a closet racist. Against gay marriage and trans rights until supporting them suddenly became trendy. This stereotype is typically directed towards the ALP's Union base.
** [[PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad Politically correct]] Ivory-tower pseudointellectual with ADegreeInUseless that still believes that LanguageEqualsThought and dreams of being a Platonic Philosopher-King. Latte-sipping [[CheeseEatingSurrenderMonkeys Francophiliac]] Foucault-loving intellectual snob that looks down upon the lowly workers yet uses them for political gain. Probably gay or bisexual, likes visiting art galleries and secretly is ashamed of Australia's alleged lack of culture. This stereotype is typically directed towards the ALP's supporters in the academic left, as well as wealthier persons that vote for the ALP.
* ''The Coalition'': There are two relevant stereotypes.
** Inner-City Big Business CorruptCorporateExecutive worker-exploiting heartless capitalists. May or may not be religious or racist, but will exploit people's religious or racial sentiments in order to win elections. Frequently complain about how the media favours the Left, while reading one of several papers published under Murdoch's [=NewsCorp=]. This stereotype is typically directed towards the Liberal Party (one of the members of the Coalition).
** [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal Rural redneck religious racist]] [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal protectionist pork-barrel-loving]] [[AddedAlliterativeAppeal subsidy sluts]]. Broadly similar to the rural religious right of the American Republicans, but with less emphasis on religion and more emphasis on subsidies and protectionism. This stereotype is typically applied to the National Party (the other member of the Coalition).
* ''The Greens'': Drug-addled nature-worshipping anti-industrial anti-capitalist homosexuals that want us all to return to the caves and hold hands around the (communal!) fire and sing "Kumbaya" together. Ignore anything bad committed in the name of Islam because Muslims are brown and it's racist to criticise brown people, even though Muslims have opposing views on pretty much everything.
* ''The Christian Democrats'', ''The Shooters, Fishers and Farmers'', ''One Nation'', ''The Liberal Democrats'' and ''Family First'' parties:
** Too right-wing, even for the Coalition. Frequently play the freedom card whenever they're called out for being racist, sexist, homophobic or just downright intolerant of Australians who aren't any of the above. Couldn't give a damn about domestic violence or animal cruelty unless an ethnic group they hate is committing the deed. Anti-Islamic group ''The United Patriots Front'' almost became a party, but missed the deadline for application, presumably because they were too busy chanting "Aussie, Aussie, Aussie" outside places where a Muslim was spotted.

* Broadly similar to the United States, although [[UsefulNotes/TheCommonwealthOfNations the country's political system is based on Britain's.]]
* Liberal: [[BourgeoisBohemian Out-of-touch university-educated elitists]], likely to be white and Anglo-Saxon despite many supporters being recent immigrants ([[RealityIsUnrealistic of which Canada has quite a lot]]). Also unremittingly arrogant.
* Conservative: [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Rich, heartless bankers and stockbrokers]] or [[TheFundamentalist religious fanatics who want to ban abortion and gays]]. Actually likely to be white and Anglo-Saxon (despite [[PeripheryDemographic having a large Muslim base of supporters]]). Popular among people [[ValuesDissonance who hate immigrants and foreign aid but love Israel.]]
* New Democratic Party: [[SoapboxSadie Anti-war, anti-corporate]], [[GranolaGirl pot-smoking hippies]] who ride bicycles, teach at universities and have mustaches - [[FaceOfTheBand wait, that's just their leader.]] ([[TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth Until he died]].) [[AccentuateTheNegative Frequently accused of being pinko socialists]], [[AndThatsTerrible because we all know there is nothing worse on earth than that.]]
** Also, Journalist Douglas Bell has described his preconceptions of the NDP campaign office as being [[http://m.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/second-reading/douglas-bell/the-game-is-up-and-its-been-a-triumph-for-democracy/article2006729/?service=mobile "beefy union types interacting uneasily with former Marxists and 60s refugees"]]. Union density is greater in Canada than the US and the NDP has had formal connections to the Canadian Labour Congress since it formed in 1961.
* Bloc Québécois: {{French Jerk}}s. [[{{Flanderization}} That's it.]] Most likely to be the DesignatedVillain.
* Green Party: [[NewAgeRetroHippie Sort of like the NDP]], but more prone to delivering {{Green Aesop}}s. Barely figuring on the political scene, they're best known for being [[TheSmurfettePrinciple the only party led by a woman.]]
* If Canada's parties were a FiveManBand (which is convenient, [[ShapedLikeItself since there actually are five]][[note]]In the House of Commons at least, there are many more.[[/note]]) they would be as follows: Conservatives - TheBigGuy, Liberals - TheSmartGuy, NDP - TheHeart, Bloc - TokenEvilTeammate, Greens - TheChick.

!!!Costa Rica
* Citizens Action Party (PAC): BourgeoisBohemian and self-appointed [[MoralGuardians guardians of the Ethics ]] that think everyone else (but them) is corrupt, basically the progressive intellectuals from the University and their New Age eco-nuts animal rights hippie students with an especial taste for using sandals and smoke weed, and/or middle class Champaign socialists that left PLN when turn out to be too much mainstream, totally pro-abortion, pro-gay rights, pro-immigrant and probably soon pro-legalization because all of that is, you know, very hipster.
* National Liberation Party (PLN): the classical CorruptPolitician and CorruptCorporateExecutive lead the party, its followers are really ''really'' fanatic people that endorse the party because their grandpa once fought in the Civil War 70 years ago[[note]]Costa Rica had a civil war in 1948 between two political factions that eventually became the main political parties during the Two Party System period; PLN and PUSC[[/note]] and/or because they themselves are expecting to receive something in exchange for their support and/or government bureaucrats selected for the job because they were party members or related to some minister. They love the party more than anything else and are willing to shamelessly vote for its candidates even if is public knowledge that they’re crooked.
** Same description can be use for the different Calderonista parties like Social Christian Unity (PUSC) and the Republican Party (PRSC), just a little more conservatives than the average PLN follower and much more loyal considering that they’re very ''very'' few now. They act mostly as a FoxNewsLiberal to the PLN as they oppose everything the PLN does, just to agree with them at the end.
* Libertarian Movement (ML): filthy rich UpperClassTwit whose primordial goal is to eliminate the State and let the rich rule in some sort of Neo-Feudal system with the Guevara family (the overlords of the party) ruling over Puntarenas as their personal playground, they seem obsess with helping the rich became richer and cut social programs for those lazy poor at the same time they’ll try to eliminate taxes for the hard-working CorruptCorporateExecutive. Thinking that the State is the incarnation of all evils and every single government employee is an idle bastard that sleeps all day and has a millionaire’s salary is mandatory as it is to hate everything public, ESPECIALLY the public universities. Also to some degree anti-immigrants, anti-animal rights and '''deeply''' anti-unions.
* Broad Front (FA): some sort of ChummyCommies, the party is basically made of Old School Communists that miss the USSR, sandal-using non-worker students from public universities living on their State-funded scholarships, corrupt trade union leaders and government bureaucrats, [[BombThrowingAnarchists scary stone-throwing protesters]] and Venezuela’s admirers. Unlike the more pacifist hippies of PAC, the frenteamplistas do encourage hard-line protest, strikes, road blockages, throwing stones and burning flags, hate everyone who oppose them as fascist pigs and every single criticism is some sort of [[RedScare hate campaign]] endorse from the Right and/or a GovernmentConspiracy supported by the USA. They’ll have Hugo Chavez’s picture in their homes probably with flowers and use Che Guevara’s t-shirts while buying food at McDonalds after burning American flags in the latest protest.
* Costa Rican Renovation and National Restoration: a bunch of Jesus Freaks known in Costa Rica as "panderetas" [[note]]tambourines, an instrument that Christian preachers often use during public singing[[/note]], KnightTemplar [[TheFundamentalist Christian fundamentalists]] hate mongers, anti-abortion, anti-Gay, anti-atheist and even anti-Rock music, the media's favorite PoliticallyIncorrectVillain.

* Front de Gauche (Left Front) : Old union members that hate the rich, go on strike on any occasion, and stubbornly oppose any modernisation of the economy. Secretly want a communist state.
* Parti socialiste - PS : Utterly incompetent people that never do what they say they would once in power, which means, in practice, they're NotSoDifferent than the UMP. Disgruntled public workers that keep stupidly "voting usefully", LGBT folks that want kids at all costs, teachers that corrupt children's minds, hypocritical progressive urban upper middle class, and other people that aren't bothered by the gargantuan size of government and/or the economical status quo.
* EELV (The Greens): Urban BourgeoisBohemian Cloudcuckoolanders that pretend to care for the environment while taking expensive trips abroad.
* UDI-Modem : Economical elites/western peasants that still believe hard in the European Union despite all austerity policies. Also, they still blindly want to be allies with the UMP, despite those being gone so far to the right (see below).
* Union pour un Mouvement Populaire - UMP : Old xenophobic, homophobic, security-obsessed, dishonest, hypocritical Catholics and/or neoliberal capitalist friends of big business. Often opportunistic to the point of seemingly having no convictions besides being Sarkozy fanboys, and may sound just plain ridiculous from time to time. Are blind to the many corruption scandals/questionable political maneuvers that affect their favourite party.
** PCD : Fundamentalist Catholics that are homophobic to the point of clinical insanity. Also, want to control women's bodies and hate anything that isn't Christian.
* Front National - FN : Racist, reactionary white trash that utterly hate any kind of immigrants (but especially Muslims and Roma), the EU, and the euro. Want death penalty reinforced with a police state to boot. May be secretly antisemitic, or at least be conspiracy theorists. They find nothing to say about all the horrible things Jean-Marie Le Pen said, and despite voting for a woman, they're quite sexist.

* ''CDU (Christian Democratic Union)'': The bland, weak-willed, inoffensive centre-conservative party who put the word Christian in their name because they thought it sounded principled. Tend to get middle and higher class support, mostly from populous central West Germany, despite being headed by a host of ([[TheGreatPoliticsMessUp former]]) East Germans. [[SlaveToPR On the fence on about any issue, no matter if domestic or foreign, social or political (unless PR pressure gets too loud)]], but in any case [[CorruptCorporateExecutive ruthlessly pro-economy, pro-business and selling out on an international level]]. Adore the EU like it's their personal cash cow, even though it's the sort of pet that also ''eats'' cash. They like America, no matter what it might do; they like foreigners in general, provided that they do their part for the economy. [[CaptainObvious Definitely perforated by lobbyism]].
** ''CSU (Christian Social Union)'': The Bavarian lite version of the CDU which is pretty similar, but ''actually'' backward and conservative, to appease the [[UpperClassTwit wealthy upper class toffs]] and old [[TheFundamentalist Catholic rural folk]] inhabiting the state. Have a knack for clueless economic pursuits and stuttering old fools they call politicians. Don't really like foreigners, but not too loudly. Also perforated by lobbyism.
* ''SPD (Social Democratic Party of Germany)'': The resident champagne socialist and cigar-chomping union bosses' party whose main purpose in life is to point out everything the CDU does wrong, but solve nothing. Get mostly elected by the middle classes of the North, big city folks everywhere, and occasionally even some working class. Is under the delusion that, since they are the oldest German party still in existence (having already been around to annoy old Chancellor Bismarck), they must have a monopoly on the moral high ground and all that is democratic and liberal, and [[{{Hypocrite}} yet rather wouldn't deal with the other parties spoiling everything]]. But ironically, they usually end up [[EnemyMine sitting side-by-side with their conservative arch-rivals]], [[GuiltyPleasure secretely figuring that such a big economic focus is in fact]] [[NotSoDifferent a little too beneficial to simply do away with]]. Rather wary of America, and not entirely opposed to Putin's Russia. Ironically, perforated by lobbyism too.
* ''FDP (Free Democratic Party)'': The main old-school middle-class Liberal party, once a blooming dandelion... but currently just an obscure speck of rotting humus on the compost heap, ever since it was overrun by [[Literature/AtlasShrugged ridiculously right-wing]] pseudo-intellectuals [[CorruptCorporateExecutive shamelessly whoring after big companies in exchange for 'private donations', to a degree that rivals even the CDU]]. Despite being Germany's self-styled No.1 sloth-destroying and government teat-clamping force, they still keep up their phony civil rights agenda to distract from the fact that the party [[LossOfIdentity has forever lost all significance]]. Think of the [[UsefulNotes/BritishPoliticalSystem LibDems]], [[DisSimile only right-wing and with even less spine]]. Perhaps the flag ship of lobbyist perforation.
* ''Alliance 90 / The Greens'': A jumbled mess of a coalition of [[GranolaGirl Granola Girls]], [[NewAgeRetroHippie New Age Retro Hippies]], [[BourgeoisBohemian Bourgeois Bohemians]], and [[UsefulNotes/{{Socialism}} please-believe-us-we're-not-communist socialists]] from both sides of the Berlin Wall. Like wind turbines, cultural diversity and free love, but hate cars and industry - it doesn't take a politologist to understand why most Germans ignore them (save maybe the students and cyclists of non-religious Baden-Württemberg).
* ''The Left'': The party for socialists seeking to flee the bourgeois Social Democrats and the Green hippies. They like to call themselves Marxists and maybe Leninists, but wisely stop just short of [[UsefulNotes/JosefStalin Stalin]], [[UsefulNotes/EastGermany Ulbricht and Honecker]]. [[WhyWereBummedCommunismFell Mostly a party for old disillusioned former East German communists, by old disillusioned former East German communists]], and would probably just like to go back to [[PeoplesRepublicOfTyranny the olden days]]. Like to style themselves as the peoples' underground, valiantly resisting domination by the fascist 'mainstream' parties, the decadent EU, the sabre-rattling NATO, and of course America. They prefer Putin and Russia's sabre-rattling, [[EnemyMine because]].
* ''NPD (National Democratic Party)'': Germany's [[RightWingMilitiaFanatic last patriotic party]] - in other words, [[ThoseWackyNazis Nazis]] (to an extent that's [[NoSwastikas still legal in Germany]]). [[StayInTheKitchen Like German mothers in German kitchens making many German babies]]. Miss the old days when anyone who wasn't male, white, German or Christian could be put in their place by a strong government, without all the pesky principles of unity, justice and freedom from the anthem. Also Germany's leading [[{{Hypocrite}} Hypocrisy]] party[[note]]where ethnic Slavs rant about the influx of dirty foreigners into Germany, wannabe-demagogues intend to boost the economy by expelling large parts of the working population, pederasts support the death sentence for child molesters, seditionists wish to keep the country from becoming a foreign-led police state by turning it into a home-led police state, and politicians convicted of embezzling funds call for cleansing the German government from corruption[[/note]]. [[CaptainObvious They're very racist. And sexist. And xenophobic.]] [[LongList And Islamophobic. And antisemitic. And anti-EU. And anti-American.]] [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking But surprisingly pro-Russian]]. Naturally, ''nobody'' wants to get caught dead doing business with those guys. Except ''actual'' [[EvilOldFolks Nazis and other]] [[RacistGrandma Racist Grandmas]] as well as - ironically enough - East German skinheads whose parents have only ever seen Western open-mindedness from behind an iron curtain.
* ''AFD (Alternative For Germany)'': Once destined to become the economic professors' Liberal party, spurning the EU and their fiscal politics at every corner, this party got its leadership putsched by a bunch of unrepentant xenophobic psychopaths when it stepped too close towards the ever-widening PEGIDA vortex. Nowadays, it seems to have decided that Germany is a communist dictatorship á la the GDR where everyone gets raped by scary brown immigrants who want to want to push Sharia law as a gutless EU tries to kick-start the end of western civilisation. Their favoured solution consists of shooting migrants on sight, making the life for minorities in Germany as unbearable and humiliating as possible, setting back all social progress to circa 1946, getting infatuated with Russia, making a quick buck selling overpriced gold bullions to paranoid survivalists, and cheerily quoting Neo-Nazi songs and scripture. It's essentially become the new & hip version of the NPD, only that they would sue anyone who dared to call them Nazis for libel. And then probably [[RunningGag try having them shot]].

* ''Bharatiya Janata Party'' (BJP): Conservative right-wing coalition who pretend that the 900milion+ Hindus are a persecuted minority. Keep making excuses for the caste system, are more interested in rewriting textbooks on coming to power than in actually governing. Try to present themselves as moderate fascists compared to the extreme fascist Shiv Sena (SS) and Rashtriya Seva Sangh (RSS) which it frequently forms coalitions with, which to be fair might be true. The BJP want to make India a Hindu Democracy with the Muslims and Christians offered only little say in rights and representation, the SS and RSS want to make India a Hindu theocracy with women and untouchables in their place and other religions backsliding back into the Hindu religion their ancestors were forcibly converted from, obviously.
* ''Indian National Congress'' (INC): Centrist-liberal-socialist party, led by and for, an elite of limousine liberal EntitledBastard who attend the best private schools in India and abroad while wearing khaki clothing to prove that they aren't the ivory tower Western elites that they are. Extremely corrupt, obsessed with preserving the dynasty of their previous leaders, keep talking about the BJP's role in anti-Muslim pogroms while [[NeverMyFault never fessing]] to [[NotSoDifferent their responsibility]] in anti-Sikh pogroms. Even supporters who vote for them wish they had an actually liberal party to vote for.
* ''Aam Admi Party'' (AAP): Take the Tea Party, Ralph Nader's spoiler Green party campaigns, add in tons of incompetence and {{Cloudcuckoolander}}, and you have these guys. Keep riding waves on populist fervor about giving lower-caste votes and challenging the major two parties. They win elections but then RageQuit on coming to power.
* ''Communist Party of India'' (CPI): Anti-US party who unironically invoke names like Lenin and Stalin, and missed the boat at the end of the UsefulNotes/ColdWar to jump ship and rebrand themselves as social-democrats to appeal to middle-class urbanites. Won't stop talking about the high literacy rates of Kerala.

* ''Fianna Fáil'': upper middle class businessmen and lawyers with faulty memories when it comes to personal finances and a [[TheCorruptible penchant for corruption]]. [[NotSoDifferent What Fine Gael would be like in power.]]
* ''Fine Gael'': Inept political opportunists always eager for a bandwagon to jump on. [[NotSoDifferent What Fianna Fáil would be like if not in power.]]
* ''Labour'': The political wing of the trade unions and mouthpiece of the disgruntled working class. Also seen as too right for the Sinn Fein and other leftists.
* ''The Green Party'': Wishy-washy environmentalists who [[DealWithTheDevil sold their soul to Fianna Fáil]] by going into coalition with them and [[LossOfIdentity will soon be disbanded.]]
* ''Progressive Democrats'': Fianna Fáil splinter group which soon [[HeelFaceTurn hopped back into bed with them]] but kept the name. Disbanded due to redundancy and its remaining parliamentary members absorbed into the government.
* ''Sinn Féin'': The IRA. [[BlatantLies Though they continuously deny it]]. Generally seen as the DesignatedVillain by Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil. At best, they are [[PatrioticFervor Patriotic zealots]] with no idea how to actually govern a country.
* ''Republican Sinn Féin'': The above turned UpToEleven.
* ''Independants'': Random people loyal only to the interests of their constituents and/or being re-elected by said consitutents, with far too much power to influence the shape of the government.

* ''Likud-Beitenu'':
** ''Likud'': [[LowerClassLout Impoverished, ignorant, Mizrahi ne'er-do-wells]]; probably at most twice removed from some kingpin criminal family; worship power and corruption which they view as the natural state of things, as long as they're not the victims thereof; racist; oppose the concept of human rights on a matter of principle; think entirely in terms of government propaganda; would still vote Likud, like their father and grandfather did before them, even if it was headed by a goat.
** ''Yisrael Beitenu'': All Russian stereotypes apply automatically. Also: Ultra-right-wing, racist trigger-happy sociopaths, secretly wish they were living in a dictatorship, mentally stuck in the '90s, think the Israeli-Palestinian conflict could and should be solved with a couple of thermonuclear warheads, have a poster of party head Lieberman which they salute every morning right after they get out of bed.
* ''Yesh Atid'': Twentysomething mainstream tools with delusions of political awareness and no clue; fight for their favorite cause by 'liking' it on Facebook; think that them having to settle for a less shiny Mercedes is a national-scale issue; allergic to decisive, tangible opinions about things, let alone facts; think they personally define what being an Israeli ''really means''; equally resent Arabs, Haredim, settlers, left-wing people, right-wing people and anyone with the audacity not to shut up and be like everyone else; bandwagon-jumpers; suckers; sheeple.
* ''Labor'': White Ashkenazi kibbutznik pensioners, shamelessly reveling in having most of the privilege and longing for the days they had ALL of the privilege; like to talk about the peace process a lot even though they have no idea what they would do with one if they caught up with it; half the things they think, say and do are for the sole purpose of spiting Likudniks, and the other half is based on a deep-seated delusion that they know anything about economics; condescending, think people who disagree with them are just poor misinformed fools; wannabe revolutionaries; ardent believers in having your cake and eating it too; miss the good old days when Israel had a 120% income tax; quietly resent the downfall of communism.
* ''The Jewish Home'': Religious messianic nuts dancing in shorts and sandals around an abandoned hill somewhere deep into disputed Judea & Samaria territory, carrying a loaded M-16 rifle, singing "Take counsel together, and it shall be brought to nought", shooting random passer-by Palestinians, sucking on the government's teat while giving it the finger.
* ''United Torah Judaism'': Religious orthodox nuts dancing around a burning trash can in the Me'a Shearim neighborhood in Jerusalem, singing something incomprehensible in Yiddish, spitting on six-year-old girls for not dressing modestly enough, shouting "Gevald!!!" and "Shabbess!!!" and throwing Molotov cocktails and stones at the police, sucking on ALL the government's teats while sticking their finger in its eye and openly opposing the existence of the state it's governing.
* ''Shas'': See United Torah Judaism. [[note]]though there are actually a lot of differences. Stereotypes are like that.[[/note]]
* ''Meretz'': Filthy rich, self-important, 7-on-the-Kinsey-scale, "artist type" hipsters with a BA in gender studies and no day job who sit all day sipping latte and eating sushi in 'trendy' places in Tel Aviv while holding conversation in vacuous, convoluted, self-important academese about "the occupation"; hypocrites who talk about "human rights" to conceal their complete and total support of any force opposing western civilization; think any position right to theirs in the ideological spectrum is fascism and use their nigh-complete stranglehold on the mainstream media to spread propaganda to that effect.
* ''Hadash'': [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs Arabs, Communists, and Arab Communists]].

* ''Partito Democratico'': a bunch of self-righteous post-communist straw-leftist/former centrist bureocrats who might or might not be just a foil to Silvio Berlusconi's existence, except for the current Prime Minister and Party's General Secretary, Matteo Renzi, which is definitely a young clone of Silvio Berlusconi himself. They love putting hidden taxes everywhere while claiming to lower them. Their party has less criminals than ''Forza Italia'', but it doesn't really matter since they just hate governing, and will do everything to lose even the most easy-to-win election (or to spoil the result by dropping in parlamentary consensus immediately afterwards).
* ''Forza Italia'': former criminals claiming to be honest centrist while they are really just modern money-thirsty fascists. The party is really just a way to give Silvio Berlusconi, the all-mighty party leader, another opportunity to avoid his trials and steal even more, and to give his companions a way to power. They hate Europe for no real reason and want to restore the Lira (Italy's former currency). Their political campaigns are wildly populistic. They always promise liberal reforms, lowering of taxes and "more democracy", while secretly want to put up a totalitarian state held by Berlusconi and ban all judges from existence. Probably also free-masons.
* ''Movimento 5 Stelle'': All-hating HiveMind, entirely composed of incompetent simpletons who might or not be aware of being controlled by a former all-hating comedian Beppe Grillo (who is acutally a puppet for [[TheManBehindTheMan Gianroberto]] [[AncientConspiracy Casaleggio]]), who doesn't really know anything about state-managing except that yelling and cursing is a good way to make a point. The party claims to be the only real democratic force in Italy, while Grillo is strongly implied of being Benito Mussolini's new host. Known for expelling people from the party for no real reason other than believing in free-speech.
* ''Lega Nord'': All-hating HiveMind, entirely composed of incompetent simpletons, but only of northern descent. Also racists.

* Christian Democratic Appeal (CDA): Crusty, tired carreer politicians and MoralGuardians who bend with the wind to make sure they are always in any government, preferably at the head. The [[SinisterMinister slimy, underhanded southern Catholic]] and [[AristocratsAreEvil Protestant aristocrat]] make up the party elite. Wants to impose a Nanny State and right wing policies on everyone.
* People's Party for Freedom and Democracy (VVD): [[PeoplesRepublicOfTyranny Liberal Conservatives]] whose pro-gay, pro-choice, pro-euthanasia liberal views are sold out cheaper than the body of a junkie in need of a fix to get the support of [[TheFundamentalist fundy]] [=MPs=] and senators. The party that steals from the poor and gives to the rich {{Corrupt Corporate Executive}}s that make up their prime supporters, whose [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney mismanagement is never punished]]. [[RunningGag They don't understand economics]].
* Labour Party (PVDA): Out-of-touch middle class intellectuals and union bosses whose career in politics is a springboard to much cushier positions at the United Nations, large banking establishments and national corporations. They do understand economics, because that's often a prerequisite for the job you accept after serving as a minister for the faction.
* Socialist Party (SP): DirtyCommies who became a modern democratic party [[WhyWeAreBummedCommunismFell when The Wall fell]]. Their strict rules on MP salaries are the dark side of ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules. They can carry out activist protests well enough and are the WorkingClassHero in party form. But they still [[RunningGag don't understand economics]].
* Politically Reformed Party (SGP): [[TheFundamentalist Religious bigots]] who are anti-gay, anti-feminist, anti-Political Correctness and basically [[AsTheGoodBookSays anti-anything that is not in the Bible.]] They believe they are on a [[MissionFromGod Mission From God]] to bring Christian values back and to [[KnightTemplar fight the Good Fight]] against the [[NewMediaAreEvil evil new media that distract the new generation from God's word]], some voters going as far as banning TV, Internet, games and any kind of [[TheNewRockAndRoll The New Rock 'n Roll]] or even interacting with non-Christians on a regular basis. [[InsaneTrollLogic They are right because He is right.]] Most of them are tired, disillusioned and pessimistic middle-aged people who believe that their existence on Earth, in flesh and blood, is evil, the world is evil, and they are above the 21th century's morals and conventions because they are not God's will. They [[OverlyLongGag don't understand economics]].
* Freedom Party (PVV): [[PuttingOnTheReich Far Right]] Islamophobes who claim to be defending freedom and democracy from immigrants as they all [[YesMan toe the line]] set by their all-powerful party leader who can't be replaced as the party [[PermanentElectedOfficial doesn't have any membership]]. Propose many schizophrenic left and right policies which sound popular, but only prove they [[OverlyLongGag don't understand economics]]. Home to many disenfranchised [[WorkingClassPeopleAreMorons lower level educated citizens]] with a select group of [[CorruptCorporateExecutive dubiously enfranchised high level educated citizens]], one will [[SophisticatedAsHell urinate in your letterbox]], the other runs a fraud scheme with government papers. Will support a right wing government [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere until it makes them look unpopular]].

* ''ACT'': A libertarian capitalist party with only one MP that's kept afloat by the National Party.
* ''Green Party'': As with other Green parties around the world, full of pot-smoking hippies who want to save the environment by strangling the economy. Or PC-gone-mad types who want to ban private motor cars.
* ''Maori Party'': ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. Depending on one's perspective, either they're sellouts cosying up to the Right, or PC-gone-mad types cosying up to the Left.
* ''NZ Labour Party'': Full of teachers, [[ADegreeInUseless university academics]], [[WeirdTradeUnion union officials]], [[StrawFeminist feminists]], [[ObstructiveBureaucrat bureaucrats]] and other '[[BourgeoisBohemian chardonnay socialists]]' who are [[SchoolOfHardKnocks out of touch with the real world]]. [[WeAreStrugglingTogether Prone to fighting itself and its allies]] more often than fighting its political opponents.
* ''National Party'': The party of [[CorruptCorporateExecutive big business]] and [[GoodOlBoy farmers]] that cares more about [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney looking after]] [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections its best mates]] and [[ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem gaming the rules in their favour]] than the public good. Prone to [[BreadAndCircuses throwing distractions]] when under the blowtorch.
* ''New Zealand First'': Populists whose supporters are mostly drawn from those in God's waiting room, who [[ScrewPolitenessImASenior hate immigration, young hooligans and 'Maori privilege']].
* ''United Future'': A Christian Democrat-style centre party with [[RunningGag only one MP that's kept afloat by the National Party.]]

* ''Norwegian Labour Party'': Workers, Bureaucrats and Champagne Socialists who want to put a tax, ban or restrict everything while they would rather not have other political parties exist at all. Have a mutual love-affair with the oil industry and wants to put an oil rig in every home. Secretly racist. Either loves or hates the European Union.
* ''Conservative Party'': [[UpperClassTwit Upper Class Twits]] who loved the good old days when women couldn't vote, strikers were locked up and everyone were Christian. Secretly racist. Loves the European Union and would rather want Norway ruled from Brussels. Either old bankers who think 'poor' means 'stupid moocher' or student who have never had a real job and uses their parents' money to buy designer clothes.
* ''Progress Party'': Rednecks, welfare-recipients and rich people who only want cheap liquor, zero taxes and who hates immigrants and muslims. Openly racist. Drives over to Sweden to buy liquor, meat and tobacco. Thinks they are for the Common Man while hating homosexuals, non-Norwegians, people on welfare, public workers and farmers. Hates the European Union. Recently sold-out to the Conservative Party, and are the party Anders Behring Breivik was once a member of.
* ''Christian People's Party'': Crazy southern Christians and house-wives who thinks gays, abortion and atheism is evil. Alternatively crazy [[PeripheryDemographic muslims]] who think gays, abortion and atheism is evil. Secretly racist. Doesn't care about the European Union as long as it isn't atheist.
* ''Centre Party'': Redneck farmers who would side with anyone as long as it keeps the tariffs and agricultural subsidies up. Wants to kill all predators, but particularly wolves. Have participated in both right-wing and left-wing governments. Secretly racist. Thinks the European Union is worse than Satan.
* ''Liberal Party'': Right-wing Liberal middle-class hippies who love immigrants but hates getting votes. Used to be a major political party, but struggle with getting 4% these days. Not racist. Loves the European Union.
* ''Socialist Left Party'': Champagne-sipping socialist hippies who have never had a real job and wants immigrants to outnumber ethnic Norwegians by 2016. Hates the economy, industry and prosperity. Hates Christians but loves Muslims. Hates the European Union.
* ''Red'': Old communists who have abandoned armed revolution for latte-sipping pacifism and students in Che Guevara t-shirts who have never had a real job. Carries around small pictures of Mao, while decrying everyone else as authoritarians. Loves immigrants and islam, but hate Christians and ethnic norwegians. Hates the European Union.
* ''Green Environmental Party'': Bunch of hippies who wants everyone to recycle electric apparatuses, end the oil industry (and any other industry) and live of berries and leaves. Wants everyone to knit their own socks, become vegetarian and hates progress and technology. Somehow managed to get an MP in 2013, despite no-one having heard about them before.
* ''The Democrats'': Racists who think the Progress Party are a bunch of immigrant-lovers, and would rather abolish all taxes but still increase the government budget. Claim they aren't racist but are utterly unable to hide it.
* ''The Christians'': Christian Fundies who think the Christian People's Party are for homo-loving atheists, and would rather everyone go to church every day and gays be flogged on the street. Openly racist.
* ''Coastal Party'': Pissed-off northerners who only care about fishing quotas and keeping the country white. Hates the European Union.
* ''Communist Party of Norway'': Pensioners who yearns for the days of World War 2 when they killed nazis and had a semblance of popular support. Wants to have the state run everything, ban all other parties and change the flag into the Soviet flag. Hates the European Union, but not as much as NATO.
* ''Liberal People's Party'': Ultra right-wing middle class students who have read Atlas Shrugged and wants to privatize everything and legalize heroin. Hates the European Union.
* ''Pirate Party'': Kids who never get off their computers and only cares about being able to download movies and games. Have no politics beyond being able to do that.

* '''A caveat:''' [[note]]Unlike several of the other countries here, Philippine parties are extremely fluid, and party-switching is common and carries little negative stigma. Most parties do not push strong platforms; they may run on broad, generic concepts (such as eliminating poverty or fighting corruption), but as Philippine elections are heavily dominated by [[CultOfPersonality Cults of Personality]] (e.g. whether the candidates running are famous showbiz celebrities or [[HereditaryRepublic scions of political dynasties]]), party lines are considered largely irrelevant, barring exceptions like the Communist Party or [[TheFundamentalist faith-based organizations]].[[/note]]
* Lakas-Kampi (Christian Democrats)- party who are too in cahoots with President Gloria Arroyo. Also seen as pro-US.
* Nacionalista (Nationalists): Too anti-poor but at least more reluctant to be pro-American. But generally pro-US still.
** They were the original "traditional politicians"—the Nacionalistas were the dominant, if not only, party in power during the American colonial era. Dissenting factions formed the [[StartMyOwn Liberal Party]] in 1946 and became their main rivals at the elections—not that they significantly disagreed on much of anything. Pre-1972 the Nacionalistas often earned the reputation of being [[AristocratsAreEvil elitist]], old-school, Spanish-speaking landowners and lawyers with BlueBlood pedigrees going back to the Spanish regime.
** To the extent that the Nacionalistas were anti-American at all, they were only so mainly because they wanted the Americans to [[OccupiersOutOfOurCountry clear out of the country]]—so that ''[[MeetTheNewBoss the Nacionalistas themselves]]'' [[FullCircleRevolution could seize absolute power over the national electorate]].
* Liberals: Effectively a CultOfPersonality surrounding the Cojuangco-Aquino family, sire of a mother-and-son tag team of former Presidents. [[note]]Not to mention the father, shot dead for opposing the Marcos dictatorship.[[/note]] [[{{Leitmotif}} Disproportionately obsessed with yellow ribbons.]] Ripe targets of criticism for so-called "Noynoying" (planking), as well as for incessant [[HolierThanThou moralizing]] whilst letting the quality of public administration deteriorate. Finally, also the go-to party for "necropolitics" and "sympathy votes"—that is, their candidates' campaigns get a boost from deaths in the family, particularly deaths of [[InspirationalMartyr politician relatives]] seen as [[TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth Too Good For This Sinful Republic]]. The Aquino family are the UrExample; two Aquinos have become Presidents largely out of public sympathy for their loved ones' deaths. Another is Leni Robredo, who was convinced to run for Congress as a Liberal after her husband, the late Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo, [[MakeItLookLikeAnAccident died in a plane crash]].
** Also infamous for condoning President Aquino's vindictive war on anything and everything linked to his predecessor, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. So much so that Noynoy's government put a freeze on every project initiated during Gloria's term—''up to and including effective projects'', like flood control.
** Before 1972 they were the ''slightly'' more corrupt and pro-American party. "Slightly" is the operative word; they disagreed with the Nacionalistas on very little else. [[note]]Although—and this may owe more to the individual ''membership'' of both parties rather than a consciously espoused party ideology—some scholars suggest the Liberals were more concerned with [[ItsAllAboutMe amassing individual power]] via local constituencies, whilst the Nacionalistas preferred to seize party power through a strong central state.[[/note]] As for their own membership, Liberals acquired the reputation of being [[AristocratsAreEvil elitist]], old-school, English-speaking lawyers with more Americanized education. [[FullCircleRevolution Note the similarity of the description to]] [[MeetTheNewBoss that of the Nacionalistas.]]
* Nationalist People's Coalition - party of Eduardo Cojuangco and many prominent businessmen. Lacks any principle.
* United Nationalist Alliance - Party of Joseph Estrada. Pro-poor they claim.
* National Unity Party - defectors from Lakas-Kampi. The less said of them the better.
* New Society Movement - the party of Marcos. Seen as fascists, but if you are from the northern Philippines, consider them to be the real party of the people.
* LDP (People's Democratic Struggle) - too traditionalists, the only claim to it that it opposed Ferdinand Marcos.
* Bangon Pilipinas (Rise Philippines) - considered as reliable, even though the leader was a fundamentalist Christian ex-activist pastor.
* Akbayan - Social Democrats. Hated by other Leftist groups for joining the ruling clique of the Liberals, essentially making them the Filipino version of [[BourgeoisBohemian champagne socialists]].
* Bayan Muna - again, Social Democrats. Consider Akbayan as too "centrist" and accuse them of having sold out to the Liberal establishment. The rest of the political arena considers the party as a [[DirtyCommies Commie sockpuppet]]. Often to be seen rallying outside the U.S. embassy in Manila. Claim that every sitting President is openly in cahoots with the United States, hence any and all variations on the ''"Ibagsak ang U.S.–'X' regime!"'' ("Down with the U.S.–'X' Regime!", where "X" = name of the incumbent President).
* Communists - oh, there are many of them. The main communist faction is Maoist and is considered as insane. It's formerly pro-Moscow faction is unheard of. The new Marxist-Leninist Party of the Philippines may be forgiven for breaking with the main Communist party, but is considered as thugs. Naturally, all of them are banned.
* Sanlakas - basically like the other three aforementioned parties, but largely independent. Will ally with them only if they had common enemy to hate.
* Buhay Partylist - a small party with delusional aspirations to reinstate [[TheTheocracy Catholic theocracy]] across the nation. Their name ("Buhay" = "Life") refers to their pro-life stance; their candidates are extremely anti-abortion (which is illegal in the largely Catholic country anyway), but also oppose even artificial contraceptive methods, and try to ban these in local jurisdictions where their candidates hold power.
* Moro Islamic Liberation Front - a break away faction of the Moro National Liberation Front. Generally seen as ruthless terrorists who take people hostage, and attack people without warning, with a determined goal of creating a separate Islamic nation from the Philippines. [[FunWithAcronyms Also]] [[IThoughtItMeant no relation to]] StacysMom.
** The same stigma applies for other Islamist fronts like the abovementioned Moro ''National'' Liberation Front (which came before) and the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (which came after).

* ''Civic Platform'': Unprincipled centrists who will say absolutely anything to stay in power. They break every single promise they make but still get elected by blinkered, contented middle-class types who don't really want change.
* ''Law and Justice'': Radical conservatives who would probably have gay people flogged publicly if they ever got into power and act as if Communism had never ended. They constantly claim to be defending freedom and democracy in Poland, yet probably secretly wish they didn't have to deal with all those other parties.
* ''Polish People's Party'': Greedy subsidy-junkie farmers who will go into coalition with anyone as long as they agree to keep giving them more subsidies and cozy civil service jobs for their relatives.
* ''Democratic Left Alliance'': Former members of the Communist Party who were going to bring back Communism the second they got elected, until they realised that they could steal just as much money under capitalism. Secretly wish Civic Platform would die so its voters would have to switch to them, but that doesn't stop them trying to get into coalition with them anyway.
* ''Your Movement'': Irrationally loathe the Catholic Church and anything even remotely conservative. Actually just a platform for one guy who can't decide whether he wants to be left or right-wing on economics.
* ''Congress of the New Right'': A platform for one old guy who thinks that gutting all social programmes and privatising everything that moves is the answer to all economic woes and that women should stay in the kitchen and not vote or anything. The average supporter is a 16-year-old who spends all day on the internet posting memes of said old guy. They haven't ever gotten into parliament, yet remain under the delusion that they would easily win an election if only the people could see the brilliance of their programme.
* ''National Movement'': A bunch of neo-Nazi football hooligans who think that Law and Justice isn't conservative enough. They'll never get into parliament either, but have just enough supporters to run riot in the capital every year on Independence Day.

* ''Social-Democratic Party (PSD)'': Corrupt former Communists and neo-Communists, enriched by dubious means during [[TheNineties the 1990s]]. Popular with the [[WorkingClassPeopleAreMorons rural and working classes]]. Constantly trying to maintain the [[SleazyPolitician status quo]] by undermining the justice system, giving out electoral bribes to impoverished voters and by using the influence of [[PropagandaMachine media moguls]].
* ''National Liberal Party (PNL)'': A mixture of [[BourgeoisBohemian liberals]], [[MyCountryRightorWrong nationalists]], [[MoralGuardians Christian-democrats]] and other right-wingers who are constantly fighting against the Social Democrats and [[NotSoOmniscientCouncilofBickering against each other]]. Popular with the urban middle class and the Romanian diaspora. Pride themselves on being true reformers, even when their reforms are [[PointlessCivicProject pointless]] and/or stupid, like changing the country's timezone to that of Western Europe or restoring the Romanian monarchy.
* ''Democratic Union of Hungarians in Romania (UDMR)'': Hungarian minority party who constantly [[VocalMinority complain]] about minority rights while being [[PermanentElectedOfficial perpetually]] in the governing coalition. Their sole political ideology is Hungarian regional autonomy with the goal of eventually breaking off from Romania.
* ''PC/UNPR/PLR/PMP/PND/PSRO/PPDD/M10/PRM/PPMT/PV etc.'': Minor parties whose only hope of being politically relevant is to ally with either the PSD or the PNL. Although they officially represent all kinds of ideologies and political ideas, in practice they are [[NotSoDifferent barely distinguishable from one another]].

* ''United Russia (ER)'': The party of UsefulNotes/VladimirPutin, Dmitry Medvedev, and 40% of Russia. A centrist-conservative-left party that supports the Kremlin's plans for centralization and unity, turning Russia from TheFederation into TheRepublic. Supporters are mocked as either [[WhyWeAreBummedCommunismFell nostalgic for the days when the Soviet government ruled everything]], [[CorruptCorporateExecutive plutocrats]] who are tied up with TheMafiya, [[MakeTheBearAngryAgain neo-militarists]], or [[BandwagonTechnique unimaginative people who follow Putin because so many others do]].
* ''Communist Party of the Russian Federation (KPRF)'': The second-largest party, supported by about 19% of the people. Mostly supported by old people and scientists who [[WhyWeAreBummedCommunismFell miss the security of the Soviet days]] before TheMafiya took over, plus the UsefulNotes/JosefStalin fans, but have placed a NostalgiaFilter over the tyrannical aspects of the SovietUnion. Their leader, "Papa" Zyuganov, is accused of running a CultOfPersonality.
* ''Liberal-Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR)'': The LDPR is the PoliticallyIncorrectVillain of Russian parties. It is pro-Russian and hates Jews, Americans, Asians, and anything else non-Slavic. Fascist, nationalist, poor. Appropriately enough, led by [[BoomerangBigot half-Jewish]] [[HairTriggerTemper aggressive]] demagogue Vladimir Zhirinovsky. At its most friendly, it is a SourSupporter of the Kremlin.
* ''Fair Russia (SR)'': A social-democratic party that officially acts as the voice for progressive social reform and human rights. In the Duma, it is seen as the FoxNewsLiberal of parties, not daring to say much against the Kremlin lest it provoke the ire of UsefulNotes/VladimirPutin. It has picked up many supporters from...
* ''Yabloko'': A liberal-democratic party that promoted democracy, social reform, and human rights. Its supporters were derided as [[BourgeoisBohemian soft middle-class liberals]] who are trying to import American liberalism. Was kicked out of the Duma for insufficient returns in elections.
* ''Right Way'': [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin as it is seen in the name]], classic right-wing party. Supports capitalism, pro-western politics, human rights and can be viewed somewhat like the British Conservative Party. Has little support because pro-western politics and other became increasingly unpopular in the Russian public.
* ''National Bolshevik Party (Nazbol)'': A mad party who want Russia to form a massive Eurasian empire. Hates America and authoritarian governments, such as that of Vladimir Putin. However, [[CommieNazis its symbol looks like the Nazi flag with a hammer and sickle in place of the swastika]]. Naturally, it is banned.
* ''Russian Communist Workers' Party - Revolutionary Party of Communists (RKRP - RPK)'': The party of the real, old-fashioned Communists, who consider the KPRF to be too soft and too bourgeois-fascist. Stages demonstrations and claims to be behind the biggest strikes, earning it a reputation as a GloryHound. This party really ''does'' want to bring back the Soviet Union.
* ''Party For People Freedom (PARNAS)'': Everyone who does not want to cooperate with Putin. Party is banned.

* ''The PAP'': The ruling party. Has been in power for a longer time than the country has actually existed. Supporters are mocked as extremely conservative, well-off, bureaucratic and stuffy white picket fence traditionalists who would happily give up freedom of speech and expression just as long as the money keeps rolling in.
* ''The Opposition'': Every other political party in the country falls under this, such is the domination of the PAP. Citizens often cannot tell the Worker's Party, the Singapore Democratic Party, the National Solidarity Party etc. apart. Supporters are mocked as young, naive, Internet-addicted starry-eyed idealists who don't have real jobs and complain for the sake of complaining.

* The Social Democrats - Social Democracy (senior partner of the current government coalition). Supported by older workers out of perceived class loyalty who doesn't know any better, corrupt union bosses and underlings, first and second-generation immigrants who wants special minority rights and easy handouts, native-born losers and welfare cases who wants an easy handout, and champagne socialists who see the assassinated Olof Palme as their secular prophet and democratic-socialist martyr. Haven't gotten over the fact that other political parties gets to have an independent right to vote against what the almighty Party dictates to others. Loves the United Nations and secretly wants to create a one-world government under it. Loves SouthAfrica, {{Palestine}} and other third world countries. Positive about the European Union and does not want Sweden to join NATO. Hates freedom of choice for others than Party bosses. Loves high tax rates for others than billionaires. Considered class traitors and capitalist sellouts by various far-left hardcore socialists. Loves low-skilled immigrants only because they fill up the electoral base of the Party.
* The Moderates – Liberal Conservatives (lead party of the Alliance for Sweden coalition in opposition) Their voters consists of [[CorruptCorporateExecutive rich people who want to reenact feudalism]] and upper middle class families who want to pay their maids as little as possible, and guile others who buy in to their hollow rhetoric despite working against their interests. Functions more like an advertisement agency rather than a political party. The chairwoman acts like a CEO and elected representatives are treated like subordinate employees, and the party is financed by undisclosed donations. Hates the poor and the sick and strives toward abolishing the Swedish welfare state. Secretly Neo-Reactionaries who misses the time when suffrage was limited to above average income-earners. Loves handouts to corporations and the wealthy. Loves the European Union and wants Sweden to become member of NATO. Loves low-skilled immigrants only because they provide cheap domestic labor and a clandestine way to undermine the influence of the unions.
* The Sweden Democrats – Social Conservatives (in permanent opposition). Racists, Nationalists, Populists and other such words of negative connotation are frequently used to describe them in the mainstream media. Longs backs to the good old days when everyone was white, heterosexual, Christian and [[StayInTheKitchen women stayed in the kitchen]]. Has a zero-tolerance policy against overt racist statements: representatives and members who voice dissent with that, and of the leadership junta in general, are expediently expelled. Dislikes unions primarily because the unions has unfettered hatred of the Sweden Democrats for politically correct reasons. Hates the European Union and does not want Sweden to join NATO. Admirers of Hungary under Órban, Russia under Putin and the Trump candidacy in the United States. Loves Israel because of its discriminatory practices against the Palestinians and other resident non-Jews (seeing Israel of today being a role-model for future Sweden), and for creating an argument of them not being Neo-Nazis. Believed to be secretly Neo-Nazis by opponents to the left and some on the right. Considered traitors and Zionist sellouts by overt Neo-Fascists and Neo-Nazis. Hates low-skilled and third-world immigrants in general, with Moslems in particular.
* The Environmental Party – Green Ideology (junior partner of the current government coalition; seen as a puppet of the Social Democrats). Their voters consist of guile students without a job, environmentalists, pacifists, former hippies who survived the 1960’s, journalists, leftish-leaning academics, and high-income progressives wearing Prada. Smug people who brags about how morally superior and politically correct they are. Secretly socialists, wants to abolish Sweden and create a one-world government. Neutral about the European Union and does not want Sweden to join NATO. Loves Palestine and other third world countries. Opportunistic party officials are willing to hang on to power even if selling out their core beliefs (whether the party survives or not is irrelevant, as long as they can feather their nests). Considered traitors by hardcore environmentalists and pacifists. Loves immigrants just because it is politically correct to do so.
* The Center Party – Mainstream Liberals (used to be Centrists; member of the Alliance for Sweden coalition in opposition; seen as a puppet front of the Moderate Party). Known as the Farmer’s League until the 1950’s, but today no one has the slightest idea of what they want, least of all themselves. Popular among elder people in rural areas out of perceived class loyalty who doesn't know any better. Might be trying to muscle into their fellow coalition member’s territory. Loves handouts to corporations. Wants polygamy and flat tax rates. Loves low-skilled immigrants only because they provide cheap domestic labor and a clandestine way to undermine the influence of the unions.
* The Left Party – Left-Wing Socialists (although not a member of the current government coalition, they support them; seen as useful idiots for the Social Democrats). Was once upon a time a Marxist-Leninist party until the fall of the Soviet Union, and probably secretly still are communists. Their voters consists of many far left true believers, a few revolutionaries, and plenty of politically correct left wing academics. The only left wing party in Sweden who does not mind to talk about class struggle, anti-capitalism and other such classic leftist concepts in the open. Loves Cuba and North Korea, but hates Israel and the United States. Secretly misses the USSR and China under Mao. Loves immigrants (especially Moslems), mostly for being the new underdogs.
* The Liberals – Social Liberals (member of the Alliance for Sweden coalition in opposition; seen as a puppet front of the Moderate Party). Popular among school teachers and university professors out of perceived class loyalty who doesn't know any better. Supported by those middle class high-brows who consider the Moderates, Center Party and Christian Democrats to be too crude and tacky. Smug people who brags about how morally superior and politically correct they are. Loves Israel and the United States. Loves the European Union and wants Sweden to become member of NATO and to adopt the Euro as its currency. Secretly wants to abolish Sweden and create a one-world government. Loves handouts to the wealthy and corporations. Loves low-skilled immigrants only because they provide cheap domestic labor and a clandestine way to undermine the influence of the unions.
* The Christian Democrats - Christian Democrats (member of the Alliance for Sweden coalition in opposition; seen as a puppet front of the Moderate Party). Smug semi-religious people who claims to love children, the elderly, unfettered capitalism and handouts to corporations. Loves Israel and the United States. Loves the European Union and wants Sweden to become member of NATO. Christian fundamentalists consider them to be secular, if not atheist, sellouts. Loves low-skilled immigrants only because they provide cheap domestic labor and a clandestine way to undermine the influence of the unions.
* Feminist Initiative – Intersectional Feminists. Believes that Sweden of today is not nearly feminist enough. Feminist left wing academics and their most ardent supporters who the Left and Green parties for not being big enough left-wing feminist radicals. Hates white men and heterosexuals. Bitter lesbians and man-hating Femi-Nazis who overtly wants to re-educate and secretly kill all men. Loves Palestine and other third world countries. Wants to abolish Sweden and create a one-world feminist government under the United Nations. Loves immigrants (especially Moslems), mostly for being the new underdogs and just because it is politically correct to do so.

* ''Christian Democratic People's Party (CVP)'': Wishy-washy, nice Cloud Cuckoo Landers whom nobody's listening to anyway. Want to uphold the social market economy to neither offend the big business capitalists who propagate economic freedom nor the wacky socialists in their quest for, well...social justice. Due to the "C" in their party name, they are always stammering about social/family values just in order to sound relevant.
* ''Social Democratic Party (SP)'': Damn socialists (see above) and pacifist sissies who hate guns and aim to ruin the country through welfare programs, universal health care and above all, dragging poor Switzerland into the European Union, seeking to destroy her great heritage of independence, neutrality and her strong economy. Oh, and they are drug addicts, of course.
* ''Free Democratic Party (FDP)'': Greedy loan sharks who promote big business and a strong, capitalist economy (see above). Libertarian to the core.
* ''Swiss People's Party (SVP)'': Retarded, right-wing xenophobes who want to keep Switzerland isolated from the influence of every country which is not so great as her, which would happen to be every nation which does not tend to begin with "switzer" and end with "land". Despite pretending to be on the farmer's side, they suck up to the rich ones by propagating tax cuts for them.

* ''Kuomintang (Nationalist Party, KMT)'': The KMT leads the Blue Coalition in Taiwan, and is the oldest Chinese party, dating back to 1919. It used to be the only party in Taiwan until about 20 years ago. Its supporters are [[CorruptCorporateExecutive plutocrats]] who want to take control of all of China under a "One China" policy, and have sold out to the Communists by promoting rapprochement.
* ''Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)'': The DPP is the BourgeoisBohemian party of new-age progressive democrats who want Taiwan to become its own country, but do not realize doing that would risk war with RedChina.

!!!United Kingdom
* ''Labour'': [[WorkingClassPeopleAreMorons working-class]] benefits scrounger, [[TheIllegal illegal immigrant]], asylum seeker, or all three, plus the [[BourgeoisBohemian "champagne socialists"]] (rich progressives), who are seen as eating tofu and hummus, as well as being knee-jerk Anti-Tory and having an obsessive desire to be identified with the working-class. Will inevitably morph once in office to become ultra-authoritarian. Spend all the money they have and indeed, the money they don't have. If this spending results in increased efficiency (however small), it is obviously a massive success. If it doesn't work, throw more money at it and the problem will sort itself out. While in opposition, will decry Tory policies and promise to repeal them once in power, then tamely accept them as the status quo and do nothing once in power. Loathed for betrayal by many former voters. Labour supporters are younger, unmarried, earn only £26,460 and are more likely to work in the private sector than other parties’ supporters.
* ''Conservatives'': [[UpperClassTwit Upper-class public-school toffs]] who want to take more money from the poor to give to the rich, and have duped the workers. They are either mocked as ultra-traditionalist "Shire Tories" who live in the countryside and are obsessed with the nobility and Victorian values; or otherwise slimy young middle-class libertarians who want to abolish the NHS while everyone's backs are turned. Despite a libertarian streak, this only applies to economic policy, and social policies e.g. drug policy reform, surveillance, smoking legislation, [[NotSoDifferent remain largely similar to Labour]], for fear of upsetting the [[ThinkOfTheChildren terrified parents]] [[MoralGuardians of Middle England]]. Tories emerge as the most middle-class, highest earning, most likely to own their own home and living in the south and Midlands.
* ''Liberal Democrat'': Cloudcuckoolander who believes his party will ever get in power, or alternatively Labour-lite or, more recently, Tory-Lite. [[FunnyAneurysmMoment Once managed to actually get into power.]] Once a party which was seen as 'trendy' to support, 'cos the others were too mainstream or something like that. These days, also stereotyped as somewhat hypocritical for jumping into bed with a party they had previously talked about as if it was their archnemesis[[note]]ok, that's every other party in this list...[[/note]]. More Lib Dem voters have a degree, are single and have an average income of £28,730. Almost half of Nick Clegg’s backers live in southern England.
* ''Green'' : The Bog-Standard Green Stereotype. Bunch of bonkers hippy throwbacks, probably want to extend voting rights to fish, want the NHS to give more priority to crystal healing than heart transplants, are inherently suspicious of anything that could conceivably benefit humanity.
* ''BNP'' (''British National Party''): [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain Racist.]] Although they've recently been forced to allow non-white members to join and many actually have. [[BoomerangBigot These non-white members are also racist.]] For example, a Sikh man who hated Muslims was delighted to find like-minded comrades in the BNP. Their main enemies are of course the awful [[MemeticMutation Muslamic ray guns]]. Specialize at being losing incumbent councilors and having leadership crises. However, it's been largely upstaged by the arrival of...
* ''UKIP'' (''United Kingdom Independence Party''): A bunch of sexist, xenophobic Little Englanders. Imagine the more unpleasant right-wing tendencies of the Tories taken UpToEleven and then some. Obsessed with World War 2 and compare the Third Reich with the EU constantly. Either seen making tired national stereotypes about the French or fervently campaigning against political correctness. Reads the Daily Express. Believes the EU had banned bendy bananas and cars with more than three wheels. Has obsessed fantasies about launching their own resistance movement against the evil nasty Europeans. [[BlatantLies Claims to be anti-establishment]]. Managed to forget to put down their own name on the ballot at the recent London Election. Ukip voters are more likely to be older, white, male, married, retired and living on an average income of £25,410.
* ''SNP'' (''Scottish National Party''): Bunch of whiny Scots with [[SmallNameBigEgo colossal egos]] who watched Braveheart and decided that it should be brought into the 21st century. Basically Labour but more mawkishly nationalistic. Committed to fighting the nasty Tories, who are apparently the root of all evil. Leeches money off English people while claiming they don't need it. Too obsessed with trying to get independence for Scotland to concentrate on actually running Scotland. Lost their own independence referendum and are currently focusing on trying to get another one by fostering grievance at every single opportunity. Criticise them and get bullied by their [[TheFundamentalist fanatical]] [[InternetToughGuy online]] [[MisplacedNationalism followers]], who consider their party to be [[NeverMyFault utterly infallible]].
* ''Solidarity'': Obscure Scottish party notable only for being led by a convicted perjurer [[AttentionWhore who will do anything for some publicity]].
* ''Plaid Cymru'': Have a stupid name, obsessed with the necromancy of a long-forgotten and incomprehensible language, physically incapable of doing anything constructive in power. Basically think of all the stereotypes of a Welshman and imagine a whole horde of them. Charming, eh?
* ''Respect'': A hodge-podge alliance of aging, unwashed liberals ready to scream "Military-Industrial Complex" if they so much as see a soldier walking to the newsagents, and bearded Muslim Fundamentalists hell-bent on imposing Shariah law in London.
* ''Sinn Fein'': Terrorists who have accidently become politicians. Never show up for work, not that they would get let in if they did.
* ''DUP'' (''Democratic Unionist Party'') : Really, really, really conservative. Thinks gay people are abominations or something like that
* ''Independents'' : Principled egalitarians who prefer to stay above the pettiness of party politics. In reality though, they are just too egotistical to join a real party.

!!!United States
* ''Democratic / Progressive / Liberal'': [[GranolaGirl Tree-hugging]], [[StrawFeminist abortion]]-[[EatsBabies loving]], [[DoesNotLikeGuns gun-hating]], [[AnimalWrongsGroup bleeding-heart]] [[PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad politically correct]] [[SoapboxSadie ACLU member]] who worships anything Europe does as gospel, [[BigBrotherIsWatching wants a government telescreen sticking out of every wall]], enjoys killing fetuses, and [[YouFailEconomicsForever doesn't understand economics]].
* ''Republican / Conservative'': [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Free market]], [[TheFundamentalist religious nut]], [[GunNut gun loving]], [[ScienceIsBad science-denying]], [[HangingJudge heartless]], [[BloodKnight warmongering]], [[PatrioticFervor jingoistic]], [[BigBrotherIsWatchingYou pro-surveillance]], [[RightWingMilitiaFanatic NRA member]], [[{{Hypocrite}} hypocritical]] MoralGuardian who [[{{Eagleland}} hates most of the people]] in America including but not limited to women, black people, gay people, Muslims, Hispanics, Catholics, Jews and the poor, treats guns better than any of those groups of people, doesn't care about the environment, only cares about the interests of the ruling class (rich, Christian, straight, white men). and [[NotSoDifferent also does not understand economics]].
* ''Libertarian'': [[DependingOnTheWriter Depends on who is writing the stereotype:]]
** According to ''Conservatives'': amoral, [[DrugsAreBad drug-addled]], [[StrawTraitor seditious and disloyal]], [[AnythingThatMoves sex]]-and-[[TheStoner drug]] [[TheHedonist obsessed]] HollywoodAtheist types who worship Creator/AynRand. [[TheOneThingIDontHateAboutYou But they understand economics.]]
** According to ''Liberals'': [[PrivatelyOwnedSociety Hyper-capitalist]], heartless, SocialDarwinist NietzscheWannabe crypto-Republicans that want [[AnarchyIsChaos Hobbesian anarchy]] and [[ConspiracyTheorist everyone to wear tinfoil hats]], worship Ayn Rand and [[YouFailEconomicsForever doesn't understand economics]]. [[TheOneThingIDontHateAboutYou But they do support civil liberties.]]
** According to Creator/AynRand: Crazy, anti-intellectual, anarchist hippies who need to come to their senses and [[OutgrownSuchSillySuperstitions outgrow those silly superstitions]]; and don't worship Ayn Rand correctly.
* ''Green'': Like Democrat, but kinda goofy, has [[GreenAesop way more emphasis on hugging trees]], and likely to be a drug addict. [[YouFailEconomicsForever Passed up economics class altogether]] [[AnimalWrongsGroup to take another elective on Snowy Owl habitats.]] The HufflepuffHouse of American Politics. Their once perpetual presidential candidate, Ralph Nader, is seen as a doddering old man who stole Al Gore's victory and gave the presidency to UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush. Their 2016 presidential candidate, Jill Stein, is dismissed as a GranolaGirl. Now both the left and the right can hate the Greens.
* '' Constitution'': Similar to Republican, with antisemitism and isolationism. Their main platform is establishing a Christian theocracy, although they hate it when you use the word "theocracy" to describe it, and reject the parts of the Republican platform they consider to be inconsistent with "Christian values". Are often accused of not wanting to actually follow the constitution, are disliked by the right for being against free trade, and the left for pretty much everything else, and [[YouFailEconomicsForever doesn't understand economics]].
* ''Tea Party'': Not an actual party, but the name for a movement. The extreme right wing of the Republican Party, a PoliticallyIncorrectVillain with a HairTriggerTemper. Supporters are either [[CorruptCorporateExecutive plutocrats who don't want to pay one cent more on taxes]], violent nationalists, archaic fundamentalists, or rubes who have been duped into opposing progressive social reforms that could actually help them. They worship the United States Constitution while having [[MisaimedFandom no clue]] about what it says. Represented and unofficially led by GlennBeck and SarahPalin. Stereotyped as having NoIndoorVoice. Often confused with Libertarians. And [[RunningGag doesn't understand economics]].
* ''Occupy Wall Street'': The left wing version of the Tea Party. Seen as "overeducated" hipsters who don't want to work but want the government to give everything to them, [[NeverMyFault refuse to take responsibility for their own actions]], have no respect for authority and laws, rape people in tents, and is completely unorganized with no central cause, as it is made up of progressives, populists, libertarians, anarchists, and everyone in between. They also hate rich people and want to [[EatTheRich eat them]], which is proof that they [[OverlyLongGag don't understand economics]].
** Far-Left: Be they anarchist, socialist, communist, or hardcore libertarian (but '''especially''' [[BombThrowingAnarchist anarchists]]), these are the people likely to turn protests into riots, carry extremely offensive signs right before they start the riot ("fuck the troops", etc.), listen to obnoxious punk rock that advocates smashing property, make [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible art installations that usually call for murdering the upper class/government/all of them]], and [[EatTheRich really fucking hate the upper class.]]
* ''John Birch Society'': A RedScare[=-era=] anti-communist organization which would do Senator [=McCarthy=] proud. Why it's still around after the end of the UsefulNotes/ColdWar is a mystery to everyone. Known for indulging in conspiracy theories involving fluoridation and TheIlluminati. The UsefulNotes/UnitedNations is Satan in their world view, hence their CatchPhrase "Get U.S. out of the U.N.". This is because their ideological goals nowadays are primarily based on opposition to globalization, based on the view that globalization is an EvilPlan to create a OneWorldOrder run by DirtyCommunists. Therefore, you may hear John Birchers use the words "communist" and "globalist" as though they were synonyms. Considered a joke by most people, but nevertheless has some ties with the Tea Party movement.

If you are from another country, please feel free to put in your stereotypes.

In any case, there are lots of variations on stereotypes. Not all stereotypes are bad, and not all of them are ''entirely'' inaccurate (or defamatory). But they can offend people.

This trope is about any kind of way that media tries to make the "other side" look bad.

If a negative stereotype was created just to make the hero look good, or [[AuthorAvatar his]] [[AuthorTract views seem right]], then it is a StrawmanPolitical.


* The Film Actors' Guild ([[FunWithAcronyms FAG]]), from the film ''Film/TeamAmericaWorldPolice'', is a parody of strawman liberals, to the point where they ally with Kim Jong-Il (the film's BigBad) in a misguided attempt to bring peace to the world. The heroes approach the conservative side, although they are clearly a bunch of bungling destructive idiots.
* The movie ''Film/{{Shooter}}'' had the cartoonishly evil Republican Senator Charles Meachum.
* ''Film/ForrestGump'' depicts the '60s counterculture and the antiwar movement as being naive at best and smug, hypocritical, and violent at worst. Note that it's not a strawman to point out that many radical leftists ''were'' violent; at some anti-war meetings, members actually discussed what politicians to try to kill if they supported the war. The film also features the Black Panthers, who openly advocated (and used) violence. That said, Jenny is treated sympathetically in her opposition to the war-it seems to be more showing that diverse opinions existed within the movement, which was true.
* GeneralRipper from ''Film/DrStrangelove'', who launches a nuclear strike on the USSR because he believes water fluoridation to be a Communist plot. Some TruthInTelevision in that one--that belief was ''actually held'' by some members of the [[RightWingMilitiaFanatic far-right John Birch Society.]]
* Stephen King's ''Film/TheMist'' has as an antagonist a crazy old lady, Mrs. Carmody, who rallies the scared people to offer a ''human sacrifice'' to appease the deadly mist... apparently as demanded by God in Literature/TheBible, citations of actual verses be darned.
** See also every single [[TheFundamentalist Christian character]] he's ever depicted, ever.
* The Big Lebowski in...er, ''Film/TheBigLebowski'' is a downplayed example. While he's never explicitly pegged as belonging to any particular party, his dialogue strongly parallels RealLife Republican rhetoric, as when he unfairly accuses The Dude of "looking for a handout," lectures The Dude on the importance of personal responsibility, and flies into a rage when The Dude rightly points out that, as the men who vandalized The Dude's apartment did so because of Lebowski's wife's debts, Lebowski himself bears at least some responsibility for what happened. Not to mention [[spoiler:he's liberally spending other people's money in secret]], and that penchant for hypocrisy is yet another stereotypically Republican trait.
* PlayedForLaughs in ''Film/{{Airplane}}''. The airplane disaster is discussed by a spoof of a then-current left-wing vs. right-wing TV discussion panel. The right-winger's view?

* ''Series/TheColbertReport'', as a satirical pundit show, has both. Stephen Colbert's entire purpose for existing is to serve as a strawman conservative. In the early days of the show he was occasionally contrasted with liberal strawman milquetoast Russ Lieber, played by comedian David Cross. More recently, he has begun imagining his liberal opposite from a MirrorUniverse, who wears tweed jackets and has a mustache, among other things.
** Briefly, during the show's coverage of the Vancouver Olympics, he also had a dour effete French Canadian counterpart who hosted the "Colbert Report" (both "t"'s pronounced)
* ''Series/ColdCase'' featured an episode where modern-day Christians in an abstinence group [[CovertPervert are actually perverts and sex maniacs]], who [[http://www.stoptheaclu.com/archives/2007/10/03/cbs-show-depicts-woman-stoned-to-deathby-christians/ stone a girl to death]] for trying to rat them out.
** Stonings aside, this is mildly TruthInTelevision. Some abstinence groups are very ... [[NaughtyByNight active outside of meetings]].
** They also did the stoning-by-Christians thing on an episode of ''LawAndOrder'', with Samwise Gamgee/ Rudy as their leader, no less.
** The recent episode involving the murder of an abortion doctor in church (RippedFromTheHeadlines) was surprisingly fair, showing radicals on both sides, and gave good arguments both for and against abortion. While there were both [[StrawmanPolitical Strawmen]] and [[PoliticalStereotype Political Stereotypes]] involved, the {{Aesop}} of the episode seemed to be that "[[CaptainObvious Shooting a man in the back of the head in church and calling it "defense of a third party" is wrong]]."
* In ''Series/TheWestWing'', of course. Jokingly referenced in "Lies, Damn Lies and Statistics":
-->'''President Josiah Bartlet''': We agree on nothing, Max.
-->'''Senator Lobell''': You know why?
-->'''President Josiah Bartlet''': Because I'm a lily-livered, bleeding-heart, liberal, egghead communist.
-->'''Senator Lobell''': Yes, sir. And I'm a gun-toting, redneck son-of-a-bitch.
-->'''President Josiah Bartlet''': Yes, you are.
-->'''Senator Lobell''': We agree on that.
* In ''Series/DharmaAndGreg'' the main characters parents were this, Dharma's being a mix of Democrat and Green and Greg's straight Republican, especially Greg's mother and Dharma's father.

* The later ''Franchise/GrandTheftAuto'' games have enough of this to fill their own page. For example, ''Grand Theft Auto V'' features an AttackOfThePoliticalAd between two gubernatorial candidates: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aAu1ZNkmWLs an asshole (by his own admission) Republican who literally doesn't care about or have any plans to help anyone]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ANRS5ohPW0E an overspending former schoolteacher who "can't wait to talk down to you."]]

* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' - Stan Smith, the gun-toting CIA-operative lead is a Strawman Conservative, played for laughs. His daughter Hayley is a Strawman Liberal, played for laughs as well. Hayley generally comes across as the more sensible of the two. In a departure from this trope's norms, Stan is consistently portrayed with sympathy and insight.\\
Beyond being a Strawman Conservative, Stan's major "thing" is that he will latch immediately onto any ideology that catches his fancy. For example, he once briefly converted to Islam because Francine was bugging him and he liked the idea of being able to control his wife. Stan is a universal strawman: an impulsive zealot, but lovable enough that the writers can use him to parody and pillory the excesses of any political position without losing the audience.
* Lisa from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' has generally been cast as the GranolaGirl / SoapboxSadie type of Straw Liberal. After noticing they were basically [[WriterOnBoard using her as a mouthpiece for their own views]], the writing staff unofficially agreed to stop making episodes centering on her politics.
* ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''....where to start?
** With "Goobacks," a parody of the American immigration debate, which presented characters referred to as "[[DeepSouth Pissed-Off White-Trash Redneck Conservative]]" and "[[NewAgeRetroHippie Aging Hippie Liberal Douche]]."
