I'll start here in Brazil (these aren't all the parties BTW):
PT (Workers' party)
The generic center-left party. Likes adding or maintaining public services, likely stained for a generation with Dilma Rousseff being impeached and lula jailed (although he left recently) And badly crashing the economy thanks to Car Wash (although Moro seems to have proven himself to be rather less than impartial and it's not like they were the only ones involved.) They might not if/when Bolsonaro proves himself much worse than anything PT did but right-wing media will do their work here. They're also supported by a lot of people in the rural Brazilian Northeast which is probably pretty religious and conservative, but I don't think we see that in their legislation.
PSDB (Brazilian Social Democratic Party)
Not actually for social democracy, really more of a generic center-right party. Usually privatization/"efficiency" oriented party. Not very socially conservative but not socially liberal. Was going to die thanks to being establised for too long and having a bad record (they had the other impeached president in Brazil) but then Doria rode the Bolsonaro wave, although COVID has shown this a purely electoral move.
PSL (Social Liberal Party)
The current party of our president, although him being incompetent has led to people considering breaking up his party, but he'll just move to another one with a generic feel-good name (alliance for Brazil). Not actually socially liberal (this is a recurring theme), more a generic right-wing populist/Whatever Bolsonaro does party.
Partido Novo (New Party)
Generic capitalist party. It's Founders are owners of large Brazilian banks so I don't really imagine them caring about the actual ideology of classical liberalism and competition/meritocracy too much (even if they throw that term around a lot) and are more focused in big business corporatocracy.
REDE (Web of sustainability)
Generic green/environmentalist party. Was expected too be a frontrunner in the last presidential election but instead only got a sad 1% of the vote in the first round.
Hyper-Christian militarist party. Unironically wants to write a new constitution with a 'religious character'.
The guy who ran for president under them actually went to a mound in Israel to pray. Absolute meme candidate last election but you never know if next time they run someone serious.
PDT (Democratic "Workerist" Party)
Seems to be the Democratic Socialist/Social democratic analogue to the progressive movement in Brazil but I can't say for sure since people aren't hellbent on policy in any Brazilian circles and most of the most blatant problems in the US aren't as obvious in Brazil.
These are 7/33 political parties.
Fun facts about Braziliian parties: there are Democratic and Republican parties in Brazil and both are right-wing, capitalist parties. How's that for indulging in confirmation bias?
The Green party in Brazil also exists alongside REDE, meaning there are 2 environmentalist parties in Brazil.
There is a Brazilian women's party, but:
It doesn't describe itself s feminist but 'feminine'
When it was created it's congress members were 20/2 male
They all shortly abanoned the party 2 moths later
Impying it's more likely than not some sort of corruption-related scheme.
There are 6 far-left/genuinely socialist parties currently listed;
The Brazilian Communist party
The Unified Socalist Workers' party
Popular unity (?)
The party of the Operary cause
The Communist party of Brazil (???)
Socialism and liberty party
That's a strange lot of infighting for some reason.
