National Populism is a political ideology associated with authoritarian nationalism involving a rejection of liberal democracy, syndicalism, and secularism in favor of a traditionalist, militaristic, and one-party state dominated by a single leader.


National Populism rejects many mainstream ideologies and is seen by many as reactionary toward both liberalism and syndicalism. Most movements advocate for the return of an absolutist monarch, a dictator, or even a religious leader to guide the nation and her people in removing these perceived negative influences. Economic policy varies between parties, some advocating for a laissez-faire economy, others for a mixed economy, and others for a corporatist system.

National populists usually advocate for the racial, cultural, and religious unification of their people under a single state. This has lead to the parties advocating for either plebiscite or war with rival states to return territory where people of a common state reside. In addition, many will also advocate for either the assimilation, removal, or outright extermination of minorities within their "cultural territories," viewing them as weak links in their nation or as traitors at least partially responsible for the weakness of their nation.
