The TNC (Talossan National Congress) is a Talossan political party. It was founded on 1 December 2015 and is currently led by Breneir Itravilatx.
The party's 50-word statement as presented to the Secretary of State: The Talossan National Congress is a peculiar idealist and reform royalist political movement. We seek a Talossa that closely adheres to and promotes its egalitarian principles. And we pledge to seek collaboration and cooperation with all sides on most issues as opposed to conflict in pursuit of those principles.

- Support for monarchy reforms to encourage Executive activity, ensure Legislative autonomy. We supported an elective monarchy at our first founding in December 2015. Therefore, the TNC supports The Talossa Shall Choose Its King Amendment (55RZ21).
Governmental Reform, Transparency and Oversight (OFFICE OF PRIME MINISTRY, FINANCE, INTERIOR)
- Conduct organizational structural review program to assess and then identify improvements on bureaucratic efficiency by:
- Further potential agency and ministry consolidations (potentially Culture and/or STUFF ministries)
- Identifying and ending wasteful or embarrassing programs; (ex: Miss Talossa)
- Convene Talossa’s first multiparty Conference on National Policy and Governance (we hope to work with the Royal Society on a nonpartisan, week-long and multifaceted clearinghouse for deep thinking on enduring Talossan issues
- Cross-party and some nonpartisan technocratic ministerial appointments based on abilities and competence
- Mandatory Performance Guidelines (performance on predetermined projects and timelines will be the primary criteria not political concerns) and the Office of the Prime Minister will conduct performance monitoring with government appointees no less than every two weeks
- Each minister within the first month of appointment will have a plan of action containing program/task/project implementation directives with agreed timelines
- Each ministry will either have an accountable deputy or a designated alternate appointee to be activated upon unsatisfactory performance by the incumbent appointee
- Popular Initiative Amendment. (Support for amending the Organic Law to allow for formal advisements from the populace on non-budgetary legislative matters)
- Citizen Service Corps. As a part of the next Census, the Civil Service Commission will be directed to create a citizen skills inventory which will be used as a part of the Service Corps Initiative which will compile a knowledge base of those possessing useful professional skills in potential government service for use by incoming administrations in search of technocratic talent.
- Transparency. We seek at least one Live Cosa and one Live Terpalaziun (Question Period) within the next 12 months. Talossans deserve to see the spirited deliberations of their leaders and we need to make our Government more accessible to infrequent Witt users. We will also encourage the Ministry of Finance to create an online ‘Talossa’s Checkbook’ site where citizens can see where our Treasury is budgeting funds and where actual spending is occurring.
Egalitarian, Open Foreign Affairs (FOREIGN)
- Cultivate ‘Good Steward’ relationship w/other nations through positive sociocultural engagement and structural competence-building
- Champion Talossa’s egalitarian values in extra-Talossan realms
- The Foreign Ministry will work to review the human rights and development of other alternative polities as a part of Talossa's new Good Steward policy
- Revitalize the Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance and International Development
- In recognition of our nation’s Berber heritage we will seek recognition of the Sahrawi (Western Sahara) struggle for self-determination
Alternatives to Militarism (DEFENSE)
- We support the founding of an exploratory commission concerning the potential abolition of Talossa's Armed Forces and the Ministry of Defense. This commission would also explore potential alternatives that redirect such traditional defense responsibilities to peacebuilding and human security.
