[3067] Democracy Now, a political movement aimed at broadening the powers of the Estates General and ending the “tyranny” of the Steiner dynasty, was born in the waning years of Alessandro Steiner’s rule over the Lyran Commonwealth. Though largely non-violent, a number of radicals over the past decade have committed terrible acts in its name.

Centered on Novara, an Alarion Province world noted for its liberal democratic government, Democracy Now has changed its strategy in recent years by abandoning its ongoing lobbies on Tharkad and taking its message “on the interstellar road.” This grass-roots approach sends advocates to worlds all over the Alliance, attempting to convince local governments to adopt an egalitarian system where all the peoples’ voices can be heard, though the exact form this democracy takes on the subject planet is up to its own people to decide.

To date, few of these political conversions have been entirely successful, but Democracy Now nonetheless enjoys substantial support on many Alarion Province worlds, particularly those of the Timbuktu Theater, near the border of the Rim Collection (which Democracy Now’s leader, Kalvin Strauss, hails as a prime example of the utopia he one day hopes to see for all Lyrans).

Novara is famous for the Golden Teak it exports across the Inner Sphere.
