Where it is unavailable or not desired, the name may be represented as National Unionist Party of Grossgermania.
The National Unionist Party of Greater Germania (German: Nationalunionistische Partei der Großgermania, NUPG) is the largest and only legal political party in Großgermania. Although organization of opposition parties was deemed to be illegal under the Constitution of Großgermania by the Supreme Court, as ratified by the 2009 parliamentary election, opposition to the Party within the Reichstag is provided by independent members. The NUPG is led by Michael von Preußen, the Emperor of Großgermania, and is largely responsible for the content of the newspaper Imperial Observer.
Currently, the NUPG controls 378 out of 760 seats in the Reichstag. Having won a clear majority in the first elections to be held in the country on 4 January 2009, the party only won a minority of seats in the 2010 general election. Although several Councilors of State are Party members, political affiliation is not allowed within the Witenagemot, and thus the NUPG is not considered to control any of the seats in that body.
In May 2009, Party members were instrumental in the coup d'état against Emperor Michael von Preußen, who is also the Party's leader. Following the Russo-Germanian War, Michael stated that he intended to bring those responsible for his impeachment to justice. This was interpreted at the time by numerous political scientists, such as Reichstag member Adolf Jäger, as being a 'precursor to a purging of the NUPG.' Despite this, only seventeen arrests of NUPG Reichstag members were made, with a further twenty-nine members banned from holding public office for five years following the expiration of their terms in office.
