The Libertarian Party (Basaquese: Partiya Libertarî) is a Centre-right political party in Liberto-Ancapistan. It is one of the two major parties of contemporary Liberto-Ancapistan along with Progress. The Libertarian Party is the oldest continuous political party in Liberto-Ancapistan, and governed the country between its formation in 1955 and 2000, except for two periods in 1977-1980 and 1990-1994. There have been four Libertarian Chancellors.
The party was founded in 1835 as the Society of Libertarians, having split from the Liberal Society in order to pursue a Basaquastanian nationalist revolution in secret. This occurred in the form of the 1840 Summer Revolution, during which the society led an uprising and successfully established independence in Libertarya, among failures to expand the revolution further. After reforming into a public political party, it would go on to govern Libertarya for all but 14 years of its existence, until the unification of Liberto-Ancapistan in 1955. During the following General Election, the Libertarian Party successfully established itself across the country under the leadership of former Libertarian Chancellor Alexandre Delon, who became the first Chancellor of Liberto-Ancapistan.
The party continued to be the largest party in Liberto-Ancapistan, though occasionally excluded from government by coalitions, until the 2000 General Election, when years of declining popularity and major scandals caused a near-electoral wipeout, with the Libertarians becoming the third-largest party for the first time. After significant reforms, the party reestablished popularity, and following the 2020 General Election has formed a two-party system with Progress.
The Libertarian Party has always adopted liberal economic policies favouring free market economics, though the extent to which market reforms have been pursued and their prominence within the Libertarian programme have varied over its existence. Additionally, since the formation of Liberto-Ancapistan in 1955 the party has favoured the retention of a federal government system. Following the 1978 ascension of Sherin Mezaros to party leader, the party re-adopted its opposition to paternalistic social policies, and has since supported liberal social policies including abortion rights, non-citizen sufferage and gender self-identification. The party has taken various policy approaches to the United Federation of Telrova (UFT), with both pro-UFT and UFT-sceptic factions. Broadly, the party leadership has supported UFT economic integration, but has opposed UFT political integration.
The name of the Libertarian Party (Partiya Libertarî) is subject to significant misconceptions, because of its association with a wider political ideology of the same name, with which it shares several (but not all) viewpoints. The Party's name comes from the Province and historical region of Libertarya, and was originally adopted as a pejorative term for radical liberals supportive of Basaquastanian nationalism within the Santian Empire's Liberal Society, because most major figures originated in that region. The pejorative was adopted by the early liberal radicals themselves after they broke from the Liberal Society, in part because their planned revolution was to occur in Libertarya.
The etymology of Libertarian, in regards to the political ideology, has been disputed, with some ascribing it to emulators of the Libertarian Party and Republic of Libertarya. In Liberto-Ancapistan, the word 'libertarian' has never been used for ideological concepts not connected to the Libertarian Party, and so aspects of its platform not found in overseas 'libertarian' movements (such as public education and fiat currency) are referred to as 'libertarian'. The ideological base of the party, and similar groups, are popularly referred to as 'right-liberal', or simply 'liberal', while followers of the ideology referred to elsewhere as 'libertarianism' are usually identified as 'minarchists'.
The Libertarian Party originated as a grouping within the Santian Empire's Liberal Society during the early 1830s. This group was unified by several characteristics, including Basaquese nationalism, support for universal sufferage, and radicalism. Most major figures of this group originated in southern Basaquastan, particularly Libertaria, giving the party its future name. Following the failed 1833 Green Revolution in Santia, which saw the Liberal Society's political aspirations significantly curtailed by a mixture of compromise and suppression, the 'libertarian faction' became increasingly independent from its parent party, and increasingly revolutionary in its opposition to the Santian Empire. In 1835, this was fully realised as most radical leaders in southern Basaquastan left the Liberal Society, and began operating as an independent secret society, 'the Society of Libertarians'.
In 1840, the Libertarians (then ruled by a collective leadership committee) launched the Summer Revolution, and over the following four years established control over the Libertarya region. However, outside Libertarya, other political factions including the Emirate of Niznstan and agrarian Confederalists predominated. Following the end of the revolution, the boundaries in which 'libertarianism' applied were increasingly clearly delineated. In the first free election in the new Republic of Libertarya later that year, a large majority of elected MPs were members of the Society, though it did not directly participate in electoral organisation. One of the Society's co-founders, Qasim Kaivan, was elected the first Chancellor of Libertarya.
Republic of Libertarya (1844 – 1955)
In the two decades following the formation of Libertarya the Society of Libertarians continued to be a major informal arm of state politics, with membership being almost vital for the career success of liberal politicians in the republic. Over the following decades, the Society grew an active and diverse membership, ranging from social liberals increasingly aware of the growing 'social question' in Libertarya, to more conservative liberals and market-enthusiasts. This was in part a result of the Society's central location in Libertaryan politics and intellectual circles, attracting individuals not politically aligned with the Society's stated political stances. This promoted increasing calls among members to establish a stronger leadership and candidate selection procedures, decreasing the influence of divergent members. In 1883, these calls were made a formal reality with the reorganisation of the Society of Libertarians into the Libertarian Party - a political party with a central leadership and candidate selection processes. In the lead up to the 1884 general election in Libertarya, it was found that the party leadership overwhelmingly endorsed more traditionally Libertarian candidates, triggering an exodus from the party by individuals ascribing to the increasingly influential ideas of social liberalism. Still, the Libertarian Party was able to establish formal electoral dominance, continuing to hold parliamentary majorities as the Society of Libertarians had done. This was radically changed by the 1901 Exber Rebellion, which saw increasing dissatisfaction with the party's opposition to government spending on poverty alleviation and security culminate in a brief war and the separation of the city of Exber from Libertarya. Following the war, the social liberal Liberal-Radical Party won the 1902 election, and ruled for six years. The reforms it instituted, such as the creation of a police service and public education, were adopted by the Libertarian Party after it was able to re-establish control.
In the 1930s and 1940s, the Libertarian Party's position once again came under threat with debates over Basaquastanian nationalism and opposition to Santian militarism, which increasingly split the party between pro-Basaquastanian unification, anti-Santian 'defencists' and more traditionally Libertarian 'independents'. As Santia continued to militarise and efforts to create a united Basaquastanian state in the rest of the region increased, however, the defencists began a politically painful advance to prominence, culminating in the 1944 formation of the Liberto-Ancapistanian Alliance and appointment of the hardline defencist Alexandre Delon to the party leadership after Santia invaded northern Basaquastan in 1950.
Throughout the war, the Liberto-Ancapistanian Alliance expanded, and with it the Libertarian Party made connections with local parties in preparation for mergers. This never actually occurred, however, and during unification other Basaquastanian right-liberal parties were only informally absorbed into the Libertarian Party, rather than in any formal agreement. In 1955, the party won a resounding victory in the first Liberto-Ancapistanian general election, gaining a majority and having Alexandre Delon selected as the first Chancellor of the new country.
Political dominance (1955 – 2000)
Under Alexandre Delon, the Libertarian Party's policies shifted to be supportive of a more heavily regulated economy, paternalistic nationalism, and militarism, though civil protections which had long been part of the party programme were retained. Additionally, Delon's personal prominence as a war leader and skilled politician made his own power and personality increasingly decisive in the party, with him dictating much policy. Delon's control was further helped by the introduction of a mainstay of 20th century Libertarian politics, the funding presented by the industrialist Rand family in return for informal commitments to their projects and interests.
By the end of the 1960s, Delon had presided over an economic boom and increasingly globally prominent Liberto-Ancapistan, and was hugely influential over both the Libertarian Party and politics in general. This period abruptly ended with the 'Cross-Strait Affair' a political crisis which emerged in 1970 and continued into 1971 which regarded attempts by the now-economically destitute Santia requesting membership in Liberto-Ancapistan as a Province. Delon steadfastly refused despite the support of an overwhelming majority of Libertarian MPs and his own cabinet, resulting in him being reluctantly forced out of the Chancellorship in 1971, to be replaced by Sujitra Taksin.
Sujitra Taksin's Chancellorship did not significantly diverge from 'Delonism' in overall policy, but presided over the degradation of Libertarian power, with several coalition agreements being made with the Liberal-Radical Party and the Far Coast Party after the Libertarians consistently failed to gain parliamentary majorities. However, the party continued in government, and Taksin's conciliatory political style allowed her Chancellorship to continue on despite significant internal confict. This changed after the 'corners' crisis', a recession in 1977, during which the Libertarian Party's coalition partners left the Taksin government and were able to establish their own independent coalition; the first non-Libertarian government in Liberto-Ancapistanian history. In the 1978 general election Taksin was unable to unseat the coalition, making her unpopular enough for a right-wing faction of party to take power in a vote of no confidence shortly afterwards, under the leadership of the 33 year-old Sherin Mezaros.
After becoming party leader in 1978, Mezaros pivoted the Libertarian Party decisively away from Delonism and towards a revival of traditional Libertarian policies, including deregulation, privatisation of industries, multiculturalist external policies, and non-interventionism. Under his leadership, the party won a majority of seats in 1980, forming a long-standing majority government - though with less decisive margins than Delon's. Mezaros' government became increasingly marketised, opening room for corruption; though there is no evidence that this permeated to the upper party leadership itself. The Rand family similarly became more influential, with Henry Rand being nominated for a safe parliamentary seat under Mezaros' supervision in 1984, and immediately being appointed Transport Secretary.
Mezaros' leadership had brought widespread political change to the party, but not his own security. Despite popularity with the pary membership, cabinet members found his leadership style to be difficult-to-work-with and highly centralised. After Mezaros failed to gain a majority for the first time in 1988, opponents seized the opportunity to elevate Henry Rand against him in a 1990 leadership contest, which was quickly won.
Under the leadership of Henry Rand, corporate influence and corruption in the Libertarian Party reached its peak, and his arrival proved to be unsuccessful in making significant electoral gains. In the 1980 election, the Libertarian Party held onto its status as the largest party, but had no majority and was once again unseated by a coalition - this time under the centre-left Liberal-Radical Party. Nevertheless, Rand was able to hold onto the party leadership, and due to the political troubles of the coalition it re-entered government after gaining a small majority in 1984. Rand's Libertarian Party moved away from the brazen, ideological neoliberal economics of the Mezaros government, but continued to broadly carry his policies. Rand's government saw significant numbers of defections from the party in protest of corruption, and the rise of a network of 'principled independents' - right-wing MPs who stood independently and fought campaigns against the Libertarian Party on their lack of commitment to principles of fairness rather than policy differences. These 'principled independents' continued to become increasingly electorally successful through the mid-late 1990s.
Henry Rand's government was finally brought down in 1999, often referred to in the Libertarian Party as the 'disaster year'. A decade of corruption scandal, some implicating Henry Rand, emerged, along with 'moral scandals' regarding the personal conduct of senior leadership. The situation was made considerably more difficult by the coalescence of the 'principled independents' into a single political party, the Minarchist Coalition.
In the leadup to the 2000 election, Henry Rand became increasingly politically invisible, with accusations that he was 'abandoning the party to defeat'. This finally occurred in the election itself, which saw the Minarchist Coalition gain a large majority, the Libertarian Party left as a rump in only the safest constituencies in a distant third place, with 36 seats. Henry Rand suffered a narrow defeat in his own constituency, and resigned from politics the day after the election.
Political wilderness (2000 – 2014)
After the resignation of Henry Rand, the party elected former Environment Secretary Ilisabek Hamsho to the leadership. She chose to distinguish the party from the scandals of the Rand government primarily through stylistic and presentational changes, adopting a green-coloured party logo and attempting to rehabilitate the Libertarian Party's image by presenting it as a moderate alternative to the Minarchist Coalition. These changes faced significant backlash from the still-strong Senatorial and Provincial Libertarian Party, though they laid the groundwork for Libertarian campaigning for the next twenty years. Hamsho was notable as she was the first major christian politician in Liberto-Ancapistan, though christian-associated policies such as abortion restrictions were not represented in the Libertarian platform. In the 2002 election the Libertarian Party neither won nor lost seats, prompting Hamsho's resignation.
Hamsho was succeeded by the Mezaros-era backbencher Kamand Samangar, who abandoned the stylistic changes of the previous leadership in favour of a campaigning style broadly described as 'nostalgic', invoking the Chancellorship of Alexandre Delon. Notably, Samangar launched a widely-publicised anti-corruption campaign within the party, which saw the expulsion of several former Ministers and Henry Rand (who had continued to hold membership despite having retired from active politics.) This led to a broader stabilisation of the Libertarian position and leadership, with elections to the Assembly of Libertarya Province in 2003 retaining its Libertarian majority. Despite a campaign derided by political opponents as "slow" and "antique", Samangar oversaw significant gains for the party in the 2004 general election, leaving it only a short way behind second-place contender the Alliance for Progress and helping to end the Minarchist majority. This total increased in 2006, with the Libertarian Party once again becoming the second-largest; though still much smaller than the Minarchist Coalition. After the 2008 general election saw only minor Libertarian gains, Samangar resigned as leader, though he claimed that his actions were part of a pre-planned retirement (by 2008, the politician was 74 years old).
Replacing Samangar was Nadia Shigan, who had been prominent in the Shadow Cabinets of both previous leaders. Shigan pursued a bold policy drawing upon aspects of Delonism, including social issues such as crime, and regulatory actions such as agriculture subsidies in an increasingly unstable economic environment. This saw early success in the 2010 general election, which saw the Libertarian Party increase its lead over The Alliance for Progress. As a result, Shigan further pursued her more Delonist political style, though this brought her into conflict with more traditional members of the party, including the increasingly influential son of Henry Rand, Harrison Rand. During the 2012 election campaign, Shigan was strongly criticised for her suggestion that immigration controls be introduced in Liberto-Ancapistan, something that not even Delon had supported. After fierce media attacks, the 2012 election saw losses for the Libertarian Party, and Shigan resigned.
In a contentious and controversial leadership election, Harrison Rand was selected party leader with only 31% of the vote due to the large number of candidates and use of the first past the post (FPTP) electoral system. He began abandoning Shigan's platform and elected to move towards more orthodox Libertarian policies. Rand's leadership was cut short sixteen months after his ascension to party leader when Henry Rand died in 2013, leading to him withdrawing from politics in order to take over leadership of RandCorp. He advised that the party elect Senator and former leader Sherin Mezaros to lead the party for a second time, but this advice was not heeded when Mezaros refused to begin a leadership bid.
Rand was succeeded by Lazar Mokri, who decided to pursue a 'middle path' between the leaderships of Shigan and Rand, pursuing more moderate economic and social policies. In the 2014 general election, which occurred only shortly after his ascension to leadership, gains were minor, but it was widely believed that this reflected more on Rand's leadership than Mokri's.
Resurgence (2014 – present)
After the 2014 general election, Mokri continued to pursue moderate policies, and in the 2015 Senatorial election the Libertarian Party made major gains by presenting itself as a force capable of moderating the actions of the Minarchist Coalition and Alliance for Progress in the House of Commons. Mokri was widely praised for rehabilitating MPs who had left the party during the Rand government, and refusing to work with the Executive Councillor Andreas Capelle after he made what were perceived as anti-democratic comments regarding immigrant voters. In the 2016 general election, the Libertarian Party won an unprecedented 95 seats, the party's largest share of the vote since 1998. Following this election, Mokri began to adopt a more ambitious political posture, and adopted constitutional reforms such as the re-instatement of the position of Chancellor into the Libertarian economic programme. Mokri's leadership was ended in February 2018, after a spate of poor polls prompted his resignation.
Succeeding Mokri was Marie Marson, Mokri's Finance Secretary. She consolidated his 2016 gains in the 2018 general election and, after signs that The Alliance for Progress was becoming increasingly popular, adopted a more centre-right economic programme which included the re-instatement of Delon-era measures including energy regulation agencies, carbon taxation and a public health insurance system. During the 2019 anti-austerity protests, the Libertarian Party overtook the Minarchist Coalition in polls, prompting hopes within the party that a government could be formed in 2020. However, this was not to be, as The Alliance for Progress - now renamed Progress by new leader and celebrity author Casimir Bergen - saw a major popularity increase in that year. In the 2020 election, Progress replaced the Minarchist Coalition as the largest party, while the Libertarians under Marson moved ahead of the Coalition with 122 seats. Progress invited the Libertarian Party to join a governing coalition on the premise of constitutional reform, which was accepted later that year.
In government, Marson's Libertarian Party regained much of the prestige which had been lost in the Rand administration, and Marson was widely viewed as the more charismatic side of the coalition government in contrast to Bergen's conciliatory political style. After the 2022 general election, the Libertarian Party won 148 seats, and left the governing coalition while moving into a more stable centre-right position. In 2023, Marson decided to resign from the leadership of the party in order to contest the Premiership of Ancapistan Province, a key Progress heartland. This effort was successful.
Marson was replaced by Martin Ohmdal, a close political ally and Defence Secretary before the end of the coalition. Ohmdal continued the moderation of Marson's leadership, but his unorthodox pro-UFT and pro-military intervention positions put him at odds with other members of the party in the aftermath of the Acadian Crisis. Additionally, his religiosity as a Pluralist Bowist and regular omen-taking raised doubts on religious impartiality and rational strategy before the 2024 election. As a result, the Libertarian Party suffered minor losses, winning 141 seats. Against the wishes of his cabinet and apparently on the advice of omens, Ohmdal resigned.
In a close leadership election, Ohmdal was succeeded by Rouya Arjmand, the Premier of Libertarya Province, who won after popular former Economic Secretary Rasmus Thornes pulled out late in the contest. In order to oppose Progress, which had seen increasing political failures and scandals in the 2022-2024 period, Arjmand adopted a radically transformative policy programme. Termed 'new libertarianism' by some commentators, Arjmand strongly supported centrist economic policies, focusing around the replacement of Progress' blanket welfare programmes with targeted action and support for unions with a minimum wage. This was accompanied by a new focus on regionalism, with increased powers for Provinces and a new, more representative electoral system being promised. In the 2025 House of Asagi election, the Libertarian Party won its largest number of seats since 1990, with 43. As of June 2025, it is polling ahead of Progress for the first time since 2019.
The Libertarian Party is widely considered to be part of the liberal ideological tradition. Initially formed as a radical egalitarian and nationalist movement, prior to the consolidation of the Society of Libertarians as the Libertarian Party was considered to be part of the political left. However, since the fulfillment of most of the party's original radical goals, as well as the increased prominence of socio-economic issues in politics, it has consistently placed itself in a firmly centre-right or right-wing position, especially following the leadership of Sherin Mezaros, who rejected the indicative planning used by leader Alexandre Delon to industrialise Liberto-Ancapistan. The modern party is strongly committed to free trade, particularly in the form of the 'tariff minimum', a long standing policy of the party to not place tariffs on foreign goods if no sector of the economy is at risk of collapse. Additionally, it has been strongly committed to maintaining a low budget deficit or surplus, largely by rejecting national-level social programmes and delegating functions to market forces or lower-level local governments. However, the party has in recent years been more willing to accept national-level high spending and welfare programmes.
Historically, the party has been associated with both the urban middle classes and rural communities. As a result, it has historically been committed to a level of farming subsidies to strengthen the Liberto-Ancapistanian agricultural sector without enforcing tariffs. While the Society of Libertarians was involved in land redistribution efforts during the 19th century, particularly aimed at creating a class of smallholding farmers, and has long supported the right to roam on private land, the modern party is committed to private property and land rights.
The party's social policies are, and have largely historically been, liberal in nature, particularly in regards to lifting restrictive state policies. Since its formation, the party has been committed to gender and marriage equality, religious freedom, and a broadly progressive stance on LGBT issues. While the Republic of Libertarya under the party banned non-citizen land ownership, and the Liberto-Ancapistanian government of Alexandre Delon placed restrictions on the use of languages other than Basaquese, since the 1980s the party has adopted a more accomodating stance towards non-citizen resident rights and immigration, supporting a default open-border policy.
The Libertarian Party supports the principles of representative parliamentary democracy, and since the unification of Liberto-Ancapistan has been one of the main architects of federalism in the country, including a level of region-redistributive development. Issues such as the power of local government and the use of direct democracy in the form of referendums are points of contention within the party, with no clearly dominant view.
The party's stance on foreign policy has historically been strongly non-interventionist, and generally averse to foreign treaties and agreements which impose restrictions on Liberto-Ancapistan. Between 1955 and 2014, the party supported Liberto-Ancapistan's historic pledge of neutrality, but abandoned the stance in favour of strictly defensive foreign military engagements following a referendum which removed the pledge from law. Views within the party on the size of the military and use of nuclear weapons varies widely, though the nuclear deterrant was created and maintained by successive Libertarian governments. The party supports continued Liberto-Ancapistanian membership in the United Federation of Telrova (UFT), but does not support the strength of its political mechanisms or their expansion.
Since the formation of the Society of Libertarians, the party has been associated with the colour orange, which was used as a symbol of the Summer Revolution and the flag of the Republic oF Libertarya. In the early years of the party, green, a colour used liberals in the Santian Empire and associated with the 1833 Green Revolution, was also used, though this has fallen out of use and the most common secondary colour in use by the modern party is white. The rattlesnake, the national animal of Libertarya and Liberto-Ancapistan, has intermittently been used as a symbol of the party, but has never appeared on its logo.
The Libertarian Party first used a standardised logo in the 1976 general election, simply the name of the party in white on an orange background. The modern logo of the party, adopted at the 2016 party congress, incorporates a star-like burst shape, said by the party to represent action and dynamism.
The Libertarian Party as an organisation consists of individual members and a variety of party organs. At the lowest level, the party is organised into a number of District Committees, covering between one and four parliamentary constituencies, headed by a committee elected by local members and regulated by higher party organs. These committees are responsible for the selection of candidates for Parliamentary election, as well as local district council elections and provincial elections in cases where constituency-based electoral systems are used. District Committees are responsible to and elect the leadership of Provincial Libertarian Parties, subsidiary organs of the national party which organise political campaigning and oversee appointments at a provincial level, and select candidates for senatorial elections. In cases where the Libertarian Party has sufficient membership in provincial assemblies, these assembly contingents hold significant influence in provincial parties and may be responsible for the appointment of senior leadership. These provincial parties are subservient to the national party organisation, which is managed chiefly by the Salon Committee, composed of twenty-one members including a Chair. This includes the leaders of each Provincial Libertarian Party, the leaders of the party's youth and overseas wings, the leader of the national Libertarian Party, and eleven members elected by the Parliamentary Libertarian Party.
The Parliamentary Libertarian Party (PLP) is composed of the collective parliamentary representatives of the Libertarian Party, across both the House of Commons and Senate. The PLP is headed by an elected Chair and Vice-Chair, who collaborate with the party leader to formulate party parliamentary business. Members of the PLP may initiate a vote of no confidence against the party leader if 20% of members publicly declare their intent.
The leader of the Libertarian Party, who plays a significant role in determining party activity and policy positions, is elected in a two-stage system. Members of the PLP may nominate candidates, usually but not always from Libertarian members of parliament and with the understanding that the candidate wishes to become party leader. After a set period, all candidates nominated by at least ten percent of the PLP advance to a second stage. Here, a ballot of all party members is held, during which a leader is elected via alternative vote (AV).
The national Libertarian Party holds a single conference each year, to which each District Committee sends a set number of representatives. A smaller number of representatives may be sent by other party organs, such as the youth and overseas wings. Additionally, party members may attend the conference to spectate and meet important figures in the party. The party conference is responsible for formulating and approving resolutions and policy positions of the party, though these are non-binding and may not be followed by the party leader and Salon Committee. The conference is typically held in March, though special conferences may also be called by the Salon Committee in response to the election of a new leader or major political event.
In 2024, the Libertarian Party reported a membership of 344,521. This represents a significant rise from the low of 126,421 reported in 2002, but a fall from the high point of 2,274,246 in 1964. The party is the largest in Liberto-Ancapistan. The membership fee for the party is set at 55 Fiats (22.5 Rovas) annually, though if membership of the party's youth wing is also held, this is lower, at 20 Fiats per annum. Membership and admissions in the party are organised at a provincial level, with members being obligated to associate with provincial parties or the overseas wing. However, this has no effect on members except functions already associated with geographic location.
In addition to the Provincial Libertarian Parties, the Libertarian Party has a number of other subsidiary organisations.
The largest subisidary organisation is Young Libertarians, open to all members between the ages of 16 (the minimum age for party members) and 25. For this age group, membership is not mandatory. The party organises branches on both a district level and on university campuses, and is responsible for some appointments in the national party structure.
The overseas wing of the Libertarian Party, Libertarians Abroad, includes all party members living outside the seven provinces of Liberto-Ancapistan, and includes both individuals living outside Liberto-Ancapistan and those living in the country's three autonomous territories. Most states with Liberto-Ancapistanian expatriate communities maintain at least one branch, through which party functions can be fulfilled.
The Shaways Foundation is a registered voluntary association in Liberto-Ancapistan closely associated with, but legally independent of, the Libertarian Party, which provides it with a majority of its funding. It owns the party's headquarters, the Shaways Institute, and maintains the attached Libertarian Party museum, as well as a number of historical artefacts associated with Libertarian history, typically leased free of charge to museums and other institutions. The foundation was founded in 1916 and named after the revolutionary siblings and Society of Libertarians members, Lokman and Hapsa Shaways, who founded the Shaways Institute as a boarding school.
