The Ostric People's Party (Ostric: Òstrsczi Starna Lëdowô, ÒSL; Weranic: Ostrische Volkspartei, OVP) is an agrarian socialist and left-wing nationalist party in Ostry, a free state of Werania. Founded during the Great War as a organization fighting for Ostric independence, the People's Party has kept an independent Ostric republic as its main goal. This has evolved into many forms, from its current gradualist and reformist nature in the modern political scene, to its more revolutionary actions prevalent from the party's founding to around the 1980s.

The Ostric People's Party, outside of independence, also support agrarian, trade unionist, and environmentalist causes on the island. Most of its support comes from rural communities reliant on fishing and agriculture, and the party has historically been considered the political voice for rural municipalities in Ostry.

The party, although banned in Werania after the Great War, was operated de facto in exile from Solstiana until 1985, when it was legalized and began to run in Weranic and regional elections.
