Asami Saito has described herself as a liberal-progressive social democrat. She is a strong supporter of equalism and like almost all United Republicans a strong supporter of democracy.
Saito is a frequent speaker at human rights conventions and forums, and has frequently expressed her concern for nations with grave human rights conditions. Saito supports universal voting rights, the equality of all humans, same-sex marriage, LGBTA rights and consensual polygamy.
Though she accepts the free market and capitalist system of the United Republic, Saito has described herself as a socialist. She also supports a more equitable distribution of wealth and has introduced many taxes for the wealthier populace. After her reelection in 2016, Saito successfully petitioned the Congress to draft a bill which introduced a guaranteed basis income for every citizen in the United Republic.
Saito is a fervent supporter of globalism, and believes nations need to work closer together and humanity should be more united. Saito also describes herself as a semi-Unificationist and believes one day humanity will unite under one flag. However, she has stated she will not push for a global government like Kuvira Laghima.
