edit Basically, I'm trying to come up with a name for a new motorcycle club. I've been in others before and they seem to get ruined by politics and unnecessary alliances. I am hoping that there's a term (even if its Latin or something) that doesnt sound awful and describes a group of people who have no interest in politics or alliances or similar end of edit

I'm looking for a word that describes someone or a group of people who either have an anti-political viewpoint or a complete disbelief in the workings of common politics. Perhaps a bit like an atheist with regards to religion.

    You mean apolitical:? merriam-webster.com/dictionary/apolitical - or political agnostic?: tomorrowsreflection.com/political-agnostic – user067531 Aug 23 at 15:35
  • What do you mean by "disbelief in the workings of common politics"? Do you mean a belief that the things politicians are doing are not working? Or that politics isn't really happening? – Juhasz Aug 23 at 15:38

    Well, if it's going to be the name of a motorcycle club, then you're looking for a noun, not an adjective, so you might portmanteau the terms "politico," a noun for a highly political person, and "apolitical," an adjective that denotes a complete lack of politics, into the coined named "The Apoliticos." If you want something more aggressive, connoting "anti-" more than "a-," then you might go with something like "The Pundit Punters," implying such dislike for politics that you kick anyone out who gets too vocal with their political opinions. – Benjamin Harman Aug 23 at 16:22

    If, by politics, you mean 'party politics' rather than 'internal politics' or 'group politics' you could use the term 'non-partisan' which is the opposite of partisan. I have in mind a name such as "The Non-Partisans' or, following @Barmar's suggestion, "The Non-Partisan Riders". If you wanted to make a pun on "party animal" you could call the group "The Non-Partisan Animals" – BoldBen Sep 24 at 6:56

Nonpolitical means not political and sounds fine. That works for the meaning of having no interest or involvement in politics, for example, "We are a nonpolitical group."
