The Jonitorian Communist Worker's Party is the guiding political party of the Democratic People's Republic of Jonitoria and, currently, the only legally-allowed party in the micronation. The political party was founded from the remains of the Wood Reform Party, a left-leaning centrist political party founded in the early-2000's as an alternative to the conservative-dominated political atmosphere of West Bend, Wisconsin. Following the secession of the land where the DPRJ presently exists, the JCWP was founded to be the "guiding vanguard for the proletariat."
The JCWP was founded on the writings of Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin as well as the philosophy of Jonism, the political philosophy of the Great Comrade. Beginning in 2011, Jonism was established as the political party's official ideology, thus making the policy the ideology of the entire micronation.
Originally conceived as an effort to give a boost to local young candidates for public office, the Wood Reform Party sought to bring an alternative to the generally-conservative West Bend, Wisconsin area. Citing "natural change" as the party's main theme, the Wood Reform Party never became a powerful force in West Bend politics, but the grassroots activism and organisational efforts left an impression on the Great Comrade. In 2009, in the midst of a political crisis, the Great Comrade used the grassroots and organisational methods used by the defunct Wood Reform Party to form what became the Democratic People's Republic of Jonitoria.
Path to PowerEdit
The JCWP held its first meeting on May 15, 2009, one day after the secession from the United States and the declaration of the creation of the DPRJ. This meeting brought together the first rough idea of what would later become the First Jonitorian Five-Year Plan and the first written draft of the Socialist Consitution (later Communist Constitution) was presented.
Following the first meeting, the DPRJ went dormant for nearly an entire year. Many factors to this dormant government were presented in the JCWP's The Weekly Worker that included outside interference from imperialists, lack of motivation from party members and, above all, procrastination. It wasn't until early 2010 that contact was made with a fellow communist micronation, the People's Republic of Mandania, and a new alliance was formed. After nearly 12 months of little to no progress, a revised draft of the Socialist Constitution was presented and initial work on the First Jonitorian Five-Year Plan was successfully laid out.
The First Congressional AssemblyEdit
On March 1, 2011, the First Congressional Assembly of the JCWP met and several key pieces of socialist construction were presented. First, the final draft of the Socialist Constitution was presented, read aloud, debated and finally passed with overwhelming support with only a few minor revisions (mostly spelling and grammar errors). Next came the First Jonitorian Five-Year Plan which was presented by central planners of the Central Economic Agency (CEA). This plan was a sparked a heated, but important debate over the large increase of military expenditures and the emphasis on self-reliance. Over the course of several hours, many changes were made to the Five-Year Plan and the legislation was eventually passed by a large margin (reservations were made by several representatives over certain goals of the plan, but nonetheless praised other goals). Other important debates and presentation during the First Congressional Assembly were made regarding progressive taxation, land reform, the creation of the Jonitorian Communist Youth League and the implementation of several new government agencies.
Following a public outcry of the need for ideological guidance, the JCWP voted unanimously to implement the Great Comrade's political thesis, Jonsim, as the DPRJ's official state ideology in late 2010.
The Second Congressional AssemblyEdit
One year to the day after the First Congressional Assembly met, the Second Congressional Assembly gathered for hearings on the progress made over the last year and the implementation of the Great Comrade's new Proletarian Path to Progress plan. For one month, the Second Congressional Assembly passed several new laws ranging from immigration to new insulting names for Hollywood celebrities. The most important feature of the month-long meeting was the discussion of the Proletarian Path to Progress, a new supplement to the First Jonitorian Five-Year Plan to further enhance and energise the working people of the country. The plan included what has become to be known as the "Ten Continues" and the "Three Improvements," along with a lengthy commentary on the global economy and the world's uneasiness of unregulated markets.
