“For monarchy to work, one man must be wise. For democracy to work, a majority of the people must be wise. Which is more likely?“

Integral Nationalism is a monarchist, reactionary, nationalist, moderately authoritarian and economically third positionist doctrine.

Integral Nationalism posits that the state ought to be centered around a strong monarchy wielding executive power, and that democracy, parliamentarism and electoralism at a country level are a hazard against the national interest.

Due to his adherence to Catholic integralism, integral nationalism is highly traditionalist, and believes that Catholicism should play a central role in structuring society.


The genesis of integral nationalism comes with the very late XIXth century, in which French thinkers such as Charles Maurras and Maurice Pujo aimed to reconcile the ideals of French Nationalism (which had previously been heavily tied with Jacobinism and Liberalism) with Reactionaryism and Catholic principles. The Action Française, Maurras' and Pujo's new party founded in 1899, quickly grew with the influx of French Royalists, Nationalists, Traditionalists, and Syndicalists. A newspaper - also bearing the name Action Française, was created in 1908. In 1911, a reflection group called the Cercle Proudhon was formed, named after the famed early socialist thinker. The objective of the group was to combine Georges Sorel's Syndicalist thinking with reactionary thought - the end result was a doctrine which later became National Syndicalism.

This newspaper, in the beginning, was violently anti-semitic and anti-protestant, though these characteristics eventually waned with time - as main party personalities and activists begun to see them as irrelevant. The basis for these were the AF's insistance upon Catholicism as the principal pillar of French identity - and the Action Française was always opposed to biological racism in all its forms, and found the theories of Nazism and Racial Nationalism to be barbarous and uncivilized.

During WWII, AF members were heavily over-represented in the Early Resistance, as demonstrated by Simon Epstein's book on monarchists in the French Resistance. However, many members also chose to collaborate with Vichy, especially Charles Maurras. This betrayal on the part of the party leader leads to the AF's banning and extinction, though it still exists today, in greatly diminished form.


The state, according to this doctrine, should wield strong authority and decisiveness for decision-making. However, integral nationalism does not support a Hegelian or totalitarian state (this is the central doctrinal difference with Fascism) and believes that there are tasks and duties that the central state should leave off to other traditional structures and authorities (family, Church, commune, the trade corpus, et caetera). In addition, the integral nationalist state would work to promote these traditional structures. Integral nationalism therefore believes in a good degree of decentralization, and is not opposed to democracy at a local level. Integral nationalism also believes that the magisterium of the Catholic Church and Catholic Theocracy should serve as pillars of social cohesion.

Integral nationalism also believes in Corporatism (though not Fascism's state corporatism). Maurras and the AF were critical of capitalism and its proletarianization of the working class, and preferred an economic model in which independent tradesmanship dominated (sort of like Distributism) and in which each corpus would allow for democracy within a trade/profession.


He has a very snobbish artistic taste. He started out quite racist and anti-semitic - but both of these characteristic waned over time, and now he's quite ashamed of his early days. He is very, very, VERY, Germanophobic. He is, quite simply, very French.

How to Draw

Flag of Integral Nationalism

Integral Nationalism's design is based of the logo of the French political party Action Française (A.F.), which is the main party to follow the principles of the ideology.

  1. Draw a ball with eyes.
  2. Around the outside of the ball draw a golden outline, and fill the inside blue.
  3. In the middle of the ball draw with gold a Fleur-De-Lis and around the two sides of it draw two cloud-like shapes.

And you should be done.
