Political Outlook Internationalist

The Transnational Party (InterTurkic: Transvatanlıq Partıyası) was founded in the aftermath of the Qaşgar War by the coalescence of several small parties of broadly similar outlook.

The original Transnational Party leader was Mıras Qurmanjan-ulı, originally the leader of the Azat Yolı (Freedom's Way) party, which was the largest of those that folded into the Transnational Party. However, a leadership shake-up the following year brought Azıza Şahıdı to the overall Party leadership, a position which she holds to this day.

The Transnational Party are committed to the idea that international leagues, associations and unions are almost always in and of themselves a Good Thing. Their reasoning is that well-designed international leagues allow the powers of all member states to be used in concert for the good of all, and foster trade, stability and international harmony to everyone's benefit. In war, a defensive league allows any threat to be met by the force of all, and in peace, the trading links allow for the prosperity of all.

Foreign Minister Azıza Şahıdı, the current Party leader

While this reasoning has not been bought into wholesale by the Turkestani government, Azıza Şahıdı's position as Foreign Minister, not to mention her probable membership of the Ilxan's Men, has allowed the Transnational Party considerable voice in shaping Turkestan's foreign relations. Their optimistic appraisal of the idea of international cooperation on a grand scale has led to Turkestan's participation in numerous political relationships of this kind, from the Mazandaran Ecotopic Association to the Central Asian Free Trade Zone.

This apparent love of leagues (and due to Turkestan's relative size and power, its own leading role therein) appears suspicious to some of the smaller surrounding states, notably Uyguristan, despite its fellow-member status in the Silk Road League. Most of the Transnational Party's higher leadership appear oblivious to this, with the possible exception of Azıza tete, and continue to push for greater transnational integration.
