The Progressive Social Democrats (Swathish: Prȯgresiv Sȯcydėmscrats, Flurian: Social-démocrates progressifs), also known by the abbreviation PSD, are a centre-left political party in Estmere, which currently leads a minority government, the Halivar ministry, with support from the Greens and Left Party.


As the successor to the Socialist Party, the PSD is considered one of Estmere's three major parties alongside the Sotirian Democratic Union and the Reform Party. The party espouses social democracy and progressivism, and is seen to be pro-Euclean and liberal on social issues. There are factions which support democratic socialism, social liberalism, trade unionism and co-operatism. Zoe Halivar, considered to be on the soft left of the party, has led the party since 2016, and has served as Prime Minister of Estmere since 2021. The PSD is a founding member of Socialist Alternative for Euclea and in 2019 had a membership of 397,000.
