Politics

The City of Notchropolis has always covered poorer working-class suburbs in the inner-city regions of Notchropolis. These areas traditionally heavily supported the National Labour Party and its successors including the Craftia Liberty Party and National United Party. These three parties continuously controlled the council for 67 years from its inception as a directly-elected council in 1964 to 2031 (1964–1980 as Labour, 1980–1995 as Liberty and 1995–2031 as United). As a result of demographic changes and gentrification in the CBD and inner-city, the Liberal Party of Craftia's influence rose dramatically in the 2020s and 2030s. The Craftian Greens and Craftian Conservative Party also became competitive in the council for the first time in the 2040s and 2050s respectively. In recent years the most dominant parties in the council are the Liberals and to a lesser extent the Conservatives, with independent teams such as the Notchropolis Business Alliance often gaining the balance of power in the fifteen-seat council.

The current council is controlled by a coalition between seven Liberals, two Greens and one left-leaning independent.
