Harmony, also referred to as harmonism, refers to political movements that promote societal harmony. This usually means trying to avoid conflict both internally and externally. Harmony is a vague unifying principle rather than a concrete ideology. Harmonic countries are generally more idealistic and moral than others, and try to improve the lives of their citizenry.

Alicorn Rule
This monarchical government is ruled by magical alicorn princesses that have lived for thousands of years. Their wisdom is just as old they are, to stand against them would be a great folly. They command endless respect and adoration from their subjects. However, they are not authoritarian and prefer the citizens to govern themselves, only intervening when needed.
Benevolent Absolutism
A form of monarchy that is guided by the principles of Harmony, with the monarch being a responsible ruler and guardian. While these monarchies usually have some democratic elements, the monarch is ultimately the one safeguarding the well-being and liberties of their subjects.
Chivalric Knightly Order
Knightly orders are guided by a fundamental religious or martial code, with decisions made in reference to the code's doctrine. The state is run by a military order with sacred rituals and customs. The code serves as a guiding light to aid the society in upholding harmonic values.
Democratic Monarchism
Democratic Monarchism refers to a type of harmony that combines republican and monarchist elements, usually in the form of a constitutional monarchy. The monarch has a reduced role and oversees a democratically elected parliament. It is not usually perfectly balanced: For example, when it leans strongly on republicanism, it becomes a ceremonial monarchy.
Kirian variant

Democratic Matriarchism refers to a type of harmony, unique to Kiria, that combines republican, monarchist and theocratic elements. The Matriarch Superior of the Vermilion Dynasty remains the moral, political and spiritual leader of Kiria and the kirin people. However, her direct involvement in the governance of the Realm has been delegated to the Kirian Premier and Kiria's democratically elected bicameral legislature, which comprises the Morning Secretariat and the National Plenum of the Provinces.

Harmonic Libertarianism
Harmonic Libertarianism is a philosophy that upholds liberty as a core principle and seeks to safeguard the rights of individual citizens in accordance to the harmonic ideals. The state governs in cooperation with the people via a democratic form of government. Flag of Zecora's Resistance Zecora*
Harmonic Magocracy
Magocracy is the rule of spellcasters, often unicorns, where magical talent is the most valued trait among the people. A peasant who has magical skill can quickly rise to the upper class. In a harmonic magocracy, the rule of the mages is benevolent, and they act as caretakers of the common folk.
Harmonic Republicanism
Harmonic republicanism has been heavily influenced by the philosophy of Harmony, but they believe true harmony is only possible with democratically elected leaders. They are therefore are opposed to monarchies or dictatorships, sometimes even harmonic ones. Compared to mainstream republicans, they are fierce advocates of personal liberty and societal harmony.
Republican variant

The center wing of the National Republican Party, made up mostly of the stalwarts of 978, has kept the principles of Republicanism in their hearts. Revolutionary pan-griffonian idealism, economic social-democracy and welfare programs, along with a militaristic and anti-monarchist view characterize the NRP-Centre. Its leadership, made up mostly of generals such as Schnabel Sunglider and Walter Emerich, has remained loyal to the Three Principles of Liberty, Democracy, and Prosperity - for all griffons!

Harmonic Socialism
Striving for equality and socialism by reformist means, harmonic socialism aims to mitigate or gradually abolish the negative effects of capitalism with a mixed economy and social welfare, while staying within the framework of a democratic government.
Hoversholmist variant

Hoversholmism is a branch of social democracy that promotes aspects of political authoritarianism and the supremacy of the executive for the purpose of achieving reformist socialism in developing countries, such as those of the Hindian subcontinent. Although more authoritarian than classical harmonic democracries, Hoversholmists believe that after the initial period of "state developmentalism", true populism can emerge in which a strong, stable, watchful government can anchor policies below the national level based on direct democracy, decentralization, subsidiarity, and above all, solidarity.

Irenic Theocracy
The clergy of this nation guides the populace while allowing democratic institutions to exist under their watchful eye. Religious values are highly regarded and the gods are worshipped faithfully, with there being no separation between faith and state.
Liberation Front
Often appearing in response to authoritarian or tyrannical regimes, Liberation Fronts are united by one or a few individuals who hold near-absolute power in their desire to see the oppressed freed from those that would abuse them. As a result of this, the finer aspects of governing are pushed aside, usually resulting in a transition to a different form of government once their goals have been achieved.

Social Banditry
Most bandits across the world are seen as cruel outlaws who deserve death sentences. But some criminals have a more noble cause and can even be considered heroes by the common populace. These social bandits stand against oppression, rob exclusively from the rich and privileged, and redistribute wealth to the poor. While they are breaking the law, their actions are seen as justified by the wider society. Flag of Free Territory of Adelart Merlock Wood* Flag of Colthaginian Republic Zannido Zidon
Tribal Federation
This form of government has leaders chosen and policy decided by a council comprised of the chieftains of the various tribes. Leaders are elected not by the people, but by the chieftains, and remain in power until a new election is called. The tribes have chosen to embrace the values of Harmony, and promote peaceful cooperation among different peoples.
Pònaidh variant

The Prìomh Chomhairle is a council of 87 Triaths and Toisiches who meet to discuss matters related to all tribes. The Taoiseach is elected to represent all the tribes internationally and to guide the tribes in matters of state.
