The Labour Party, officially MBE Labour is a centre-left political party in Great Morstaybishlia that has been described as an alliance of social democrats, democratic socialists and trade unionists. It currently holds a minority government.

The Labour Party was formed in 1900 by blue-collar workers in Aeternum as the Labourers Movement Party, but not recognised as an entity by the state until 1917. They grew out of a larger trade union movement in Aurora that existed before the Great War but wasn't in full swing until the late 1910s. It was only until after the war the party began aligning more with other socialist parties. The party branched off to Staynes in 1920 and became very popular in its major conurbations but never governed the nation until the 1935 election.

In the late 1920s, the Labourers Movement Party formed a coalition with other Labour and Workers parties across the Morstaybishlian Empire, forming the Coalition of Labour Parties. Going into the 21st century, the party modernised its name from the Coalition of Labour Parties to the Labour Party, or officially the MBE Labour, but through imagery, campaigns and media appearances, it uses the logo "CLP", homage to its coalition origins.
