The National Bloc (Dellish: Nasjonaal blok, Weranian: Nationaler Block, Swathish: Lėodsameln, Kirenian: Rahvuslik blokk; NB) is a Liberal conservative political bloc in Alsland. The Bloc is the second largest bloc in Alsland and major participant in the country's 'Bloc system'. The bloc is a member of the Alliance of Conservatives and Democrats for Euclea.

The bloc is traditionally a moderate, and conservative with connections to the Sotirian Church. During the 20th century the bloc was a major proponent of Euclean Integration, Sotirian Democracy, Traditional family values and Economic liberalism. However since the beginning of the 21st century the bloc has moderated it's position and officially supports LGBT rights and has ended all official connections to the Sotirian church and secularised, despite receiving backing from the church. The bloc defines itself as "a Liberal Conservative bloc based on protecting Alslandic values of Friendship, Democracy, tolerance and International cooperation."

The bloc considers itself to be the official successor to the Alslander Bloc which governed Alsland during the Great War. However the bloc was officially founded in 1957 by opposition members to the governing Progressive Alliance. Originally the Bloc functioned as a catch-all organisation for opposition figures but slowly transitioned into a centre-right dominated bloc and became the dominant force in Alslandic conservatism.
