The Progress Party, colliquially known as Progress 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 coalition government with the Civic Party.

The Progress Party was formed in 1900 by blue-collar workers in Rouanezkador as the Progress 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 left-wing 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.
