The People's Party of the MRT, more commonly referred to as the People's Party, was a political party founded by daltdisneyland on April 2, 2019. It known most for its actions in and secession from the Epsilonian Republic. While the party had no consistent ideological background, it tended to be radically populist, advocating directly for positions supported by the constituents of the party. The party was co-chaired by daltdisneyland and Echohue.

The party went highly inactive following its secession from the Epsilonian Republic and had essentially dissolved following the inactivity of the Zeta Republic shortly after its founding. The party became minorly active during the Sixth Parliament of Epsilon but has not been active since.


Kaktus Republic

The party was originally founded to promote common interests and bridge the divide between the main political parties of the Kaktus Republic at the time. While the party supported the status quo of a dictatorship government, it advocated for several reforms, including the demotion of Minecrafter_11 from his Government Staff position and the removal of the bots that he installed. This chapter was founded on April 2, 2019, and quickly grew to become the largest party in the Kaktus Republic legislature. This chapter was unofficially dissolved and re-established when the Kaktus Republic merged with the Mojang Union to create the People's Republic of Montego.

People's Republic of Montego

The party maintained its previous stances under the Kaktus Republic following the creation of the People's Republic of Montego. It is known to be one of the two largest parties in the Montego legislature; however, pending an official census, it is unclear whether it is the largest as the Mojanger National Party is assumed to encompass all towns added to the republic from the Mojang Union.

Epsilonian Republic

Prior to his election, Echohue left his previous party and established a chapter of the People's Party, and several members from Montego quickly joined to create a majority in the House of Representatives. Following the election of Echohue to the role of President in the Epsilonian Republic, some members of the party saw actions taken by other leaders as subversive to the democratic process. After being unsatisfied with the constitutional reform proposed by the other parties, the members of the People's Party decided to secede and form the Zeta Republic three days later, with members leaving voluntarily or being banned for instigating an alleged 'coup' and committing 'treacherous actions'.

Following the secession of the People's Party, interim president ModernArt announced the following response in the Epsilonian Republic Discord:

"As the former President of the Republic of Epsilon committed treason to our nation, it is only just that we have an interim government until the middle of January due to political instability. We will make our nation better than theirs, by creating the most ambitious proposals that this country has ever seen. We are going to compete with the counterfeit nation that is lead by the former dictator of Montego. It is only right that we shall move on and that is a must for this nation."

- ModernArt, 29 December 2019

Although the party was only active for a short period of time, it supported sweeping democratic reforms, in contrast to its previous chapters; however, similarly to previous chapters, the People's Party attempted to take efforts to strip power from whom the party deemed as unpopular leaders.

On April 9, 2020, daltdisneyland refounded the People's Party in the Epsilonian Republic, endorsing Llama Libertarian Echohue's bid for the presidency. Following Echohue's election under the Sixth Parliament of Epsilon, the People's Party strongly advocated for a "one member, one vote" policy.

Zeta Republic

As the People's Party seceded in its entirety from the Epsilonian Republic, most pledged members of the Zeta Republic belong to it. In the process of constructing the constitution, the party had supported language enhancing a democratic government. This chapter's beliefs were identical to the beliefs of the former Epsilonian Republic chapter.


There were no specific requirements for membership, and the party encouraged all interested players to join by requesting a Discord invitation from daltdisneyland or Echohue. It was encouraged, but not required, to become a member of one of the MPOs in which the party was currently active before joining the party.
