The Liberal Party of Adammia is currently one of four political parties in the Empire of Adammia. It was established by Emperor Adam I on 4 August 2013. For most of its history it was mostly dormant and had only one member. It did not field any candidates in the 2013 National Elections, as its only Councilor was prohibited from running due to being Monarch. Despite a party political broadcast[1], it lost that single Councilor in the 2014 local elections, with the Delegate of the Colonies being its only presence on the Ruling Council. Until 12 October 2014, the Liberal Party was known as the Liberal Imperialist Secular Technocratic Party or LIST Party, when it was renamed by the party President, Adam I, in an effort to rebrand the party.

On 25 July 2015, the Liberal Party gained two new members, Prince Jake and Sir Matthew Foster. This was followed by Sir Christopher Hall and Madam Debbie Shaw on 20 August 2016, making it the largest party in Adammia in terms of membership. On 15 July 2017, at a party conference, a constitution was passed creating the separate roles of political Leader and administrative President, and Prince Jake was elected the party's first leader, with the Emperor staying on as party president.

Policies

The current set of Liberal Party policies, set out in its 2017 Manifesto[2] released on 15 July of that year, are as follows:

  • Merging the Citizenship and Information ministries into a combined Ministry of Citizenship & Information, and merging the Culture, Environment, Infrastructure and Science & Technology ministries into a combined Ministry of National Development, thus reducing the number of ministries from nine to five, creating a more streamlined and efficient Cabinet.
  • Allowing one or more universities to be established within Adammia and creating an official system of accreditation for certain professions such as lawyers who may need education specific to Adammia.
  • Investigating the possibility of having the Ministry of Foreign Affairs hosting or co-hosting a micronational summit in either Birmingham or London in 2018.
  • Supporting the creation of a tapestry to showcase a pictorial history of the Empire as a new national project.
  • Encouraging more economic growth by granting subsidies to new companies, helping them get started.
  • Developing the military by carrying out a recruitment drive, more training exercises and scouting expeditions to locations such as the Jagstonian Plains, and setting up new bases and outposts.
  • Supporting the expansion of the Empire to universities in the form of new colonies, as well as establishing colonies in other locations.
  • Legislating to flesh out the courts system allowing cases to be heard using proper procedures, and creating a new post of Attorney General to represent the Government.
  • Allowing each province to design its own official flag.
  • Pushing for the creation of place-names in all territories which do not already have them. Once this is done, it will allow the Imperial Institute of Geography to produce a map of the entire Empire for the first time.
  • Pushing for formal diplomatic relations with more micronations, particularly well-known, reputable ones.
