So the left vote is split between three parties? :huh:

That's kinda what I'm trying to go for. Ocia is supposed to be a bit more left-wing than some of my other scenarios (Rocentia and Alexandria, for example). Though I'm going to go for a "quirky" regionalism given the few provinces it has.

That being said, each party has different bases:

Federalists: Social Conservatives, Traditional Businesses

Liberals: Professionals, White-collar workers, Entrepreneurs

Greens: Public employees, Environmentalists, Service Workers

Labour: Farmers, Blue-Collar workers
