The Etrurian Federalist Party (Vespasian: Partito Federalista Etruriano, PFE; Novalian: ;Carinthian: ) was a Sotirian democratic centre-right political party in Etruria that existed from 1982 to 2017. The Federalist Party was formed in August 1982, as part of the planned preparations for the restoration of democracy following twenty-three years of military rule. Its leaders were drawn from the "Catholic and conservative" faction of the National Coordination Committee for Democracy, the national pro-democracy movement. However, the Federalist Party is the spiritual successor to Libertas, the sotirian democratic party of the Etrurian Third Republic (1948-1960). The PFE adopted the Catholic-inspired centre-right platform of Libertas, it would retain its sotirian democratic ideology throughout much of its existence, before transitioning toward a more secular liberal conservatism in the 2010s under Emiliano Reali. It was one of the two "poteri maggiore" of Etrurian politics alongside the centre-left Social Democratic Party (SD) from 1983 to 2016, before collapsing in wake of the Miraviglia scandal and ultimately dissolving in 2017. It was succeeded by Democratic Alternative for Etruria, which in turn dissolved in 2021.
Between 1983 and 2013, the PFE would govern through "organic centre-right" coalitions consisting of the party and usually the Farmers and Workers Union and or the Republican Popular Party, a centrist liberal party. It governed twice in its existence 1994-2002 and 2009-2016, under four presidents. It governed in a grand coalition with the SD twice from 1983-1989 and 2013-2016 and during the latter period, it underwent a rapid and terminal collapse in wake corruption scandals, the EC referendum and the rise of the right-wing populist Tribune Movement and centrist Citizens' Alliance. The collapse of the PFE, once one of the largest centre-right parties in Euclea between 2016 and 2017 has led to numerous studies and assessments, including the introduction of the term Percederation, which defines the decline of centre-right parties in Euclea and elsewhere and their replacement by centrist or nationalist, right wing populist parties.
