Partì da Reformaziun (English: the Reform Party) is a political party founded by Mic'haglh Autófil to contest the April 2022 general election to determine the 57th Cosa. Described by Dame Miestra Schiva as "celebrating in the traditional manner by starting his own political party",[1] the PdR was founded in part to "rise above the continuous headbutting" of the more established parties, being instead a group that would hear out even its most polar ideological opposites.


The PdR holds several main principles, those being:

- Republicanism:
- The PdR is at its core a party that supports the implementation of a Talossan republic.
- Ideally, this would take the form of a directorial system, a multi-member executive elected on staggered terms.
- In the interest of compromise, the PdR advocates giving the reigning King one of the seats on the executive council, whichever seat with the term set to expire the latest.
- Unicameralism & Cosa Reform:
- The PdR holds that a bicameral legislature is largely unnecessary in a nation of Talossa's size, and that the Senäts should be abolished.
- However, to ensure provincial interests remain represented in the Ziu, the PdR advocates transitioning first to a Cosa elected by mixed-member proportional representation prior to abolishing the Senäts.
- Each province should be allotted an equal number of whole seats at an election, such that the total number of provincial seats should be as close as possible to half the total Cosa seats without going over.
- The number of seats should either remain fixed (causing overhang seats to be taken away from other parties), or only increase above the nominal number by the number of overhang seats.
- Party list seats are best apportioned by the Huntington-Hill method.
- The Senäts should only be abolished upon the dissolution of a Cosa. Any Senators in the middle of a term at the abolition of the Senäts should be granted their province's provincial seats for the remainder of what would have been their senatorial term.
- Incrementalism:
- The PdR holds that changes can only be evaluated properly when they are implemented in a deliberate and incremental manner. Radical changes only provoke a swing of the pendulum in the opposite direction.
- Provincial Reform:
- The PdR advocates for provincial mergers where sensible.
- Derivativist / Pecularist Agnosticism:
- Recognizing the merits of both derivativism and peculiarism, the PdR takes no official stance, leaving the matter to each member's conscious consideration. Unofficially, the party advocates for a middle path between the two, sometimes referred to as "doing derivativist things in a peculiarist manner".
- Anti-isolationism:
- The PdR advocates for continuing to sensibly broaden Talossa's ties to the broader micronational community.
- Mutual Respect:
- The PdR advocates treating all Talossans with dignity and respect, taking the high road whenever possible.

Nominally as per its charter, the PdR membership in each province elects a Cäps Provincial (Provincial Chair), which serve as the provinces' representation on the Comità Esecutorxheu (Executive Committee). The Comità Esecutorxheu chooses from among its members the Cäps Naziunal (Chairperson or National Chair), who serves as the party's leader. In practice however, most of these offices sit vacant.

The PdR's most recent General Election platform, for the February 2023 general election, is as follows:[2]

Parti da Reformaziun Platform for the 58th Cosa

The Parti da Reformaziun declares its entrance to the election for the 58th Cosa. Progress has been made in the 57th Cosa towards improving the situation in Talossa, and we hereby outline several changes that will continue that progress, building towards a brighter future for all Talossans.

1. The PdR reiterates its republican stance, and acknowledges that gradually reforming Talossa from a kingdom to a Republic is in the best interest of both acknowledging Talossa’s maturation into a mature, democratic society, as well as helping to maintain activity, the lifeblood of the nation. However, we likewise reiterate our belief in compromise with the monarchists of Talossa, we agree to grandfather the King in as the first holder of the elected office of head of state. Ideally this government would take the form of a three-person directory, a collective head of state, though there are multiple methods to institute such a body and multiple alternatives we find acceptable.

2. Keeping in mind the nature of Talossan politics at the moment, we believe making the current state of affairs – that of an elected monarch – is an acceptable compromise. However, the current situation – no defined procedure for selecting the next monarch – is unacceptable and has the potential to lead to a constitutional crisis.

3. We believe in reform of the Ziu’s structure. Combining the two houses along with a switch to a Mixed-Member Proportional system will allow provincial interests to remain represented while reflecting the nature of Talossa as a unitary state. To that end, the PdR will work to amend Organic Law to form an MMP Cosa during this term, but will not pursue any reforms to the structure of the Senate.

4. We believe that Talossan society and politics have made good progress towards a more positive nation that encourages newer Talossans to stay and contribute to society. While this is not a legislative stance, we nevertheless reiterate our commitment to always put principle and discussion ahead of partisan politics. No matter whether they come from a private citizen, a government minister, or someone sitting across the political aisle, they will always find a fair and listening ear for their concerns in the PdR.
