The Libertarian Ideology of the Athralian Confederation
The ideology that is by a huge margin the most prevalent in Athralia and that best represents the nation itself is very similar to the libertarian and minarchist ideologies found on Earth. The people of Athralia hold individual liberty as their core principle, emphasising freedom of choice, voluntary association, individual judgement, and self-ownership. They believe that the State should exist solely to protect citizens from aggression, theft, breach of contract, and fraud as defined by property laws. As a result, the only legitimate governmental institutions are the military, police, courts, the executive, the judiciary and the legislature. So long as the Constitution continues unaltered, Athralia is effectively a so-called 'night-watchman' state, a beacon of liberty and free market capitalism.
