Factio Fortuna, commonly referred to as ad libertatem coetus (The Liberty Group). They are an influential party in Selucian politics and currently the second largest party in Selucia.

Factio Fortuna's current ideology is more commonly known as Selucian Liberalism. The Party largely supports free-market capitalism, fiscal responsibility, the rights of the individual, and individual ownership of private property.

The voter base of Factio Fortuna is largely composed of small-business owners and the Liberty Alliance of Sleucia. The base of support comes primarily from Uleroth and West Shadar, where the Party polls especially high compared to it's counterparts.

Arguably, the Party was strongest in 4261 when they controlled the office of Caesar Senatus (Decimus Cornelius Afer), the Senate (301/500 seats), and 4/5 Provincial legislatures.

History Edit

Factio Fortuna (Lucky Faction) was founded as a moderate right party in 4246 by Decimus Cornelius Afer, and Augustus Tacticus. The party gained notoriety in 4255 when Decimus Cornelius Afer became Caesar Senatus of Sleucia.

Augustus Tacticus and Decimus Cornelius Afer founded Factio Fortuna because there were very polarizing politics at the time. It was either a far-left or far-right choice with an no party for small government, so the two decided to found a party of their own. Decimus Cornelius Afer, financially backed the foundation of the party. Augustus Tacticus used his skills as a political commentator to finally put their ideas on the Selucian political scene.

Factio Fortuna was founded on Classical Liberal principles, but a more conservative faction led by Decimus Cornelius Afer took hold in 4254. In the mid-4260's a new Libertarian faction popped up inside the party under Lars Ramio, who used to be a Classical Liberal.

There are three factions inside the party; Classical Liberals, Conservative Liberals, and the Libertarians. Currently the Classical Liberals are led by Octavia Livibia, the Conservative Liberals by Valentina Paeta, and the Libertarians by Lars Ramio. The factions only have slight different when it comes to social politics, but agree on economic politics of Factio Fortuna along with the roles of citizen and state.

43rd Century Edit

The foundation of Factio Fortuna was shrugged off by many as they thought it was just another joke targeting the Selucian political system as was common on late night shows in the 4240's and early 50's. As the party's first Head Chair, Augustus Tacticus campaigned using his late night show as a platform for Factio Fortuna. In the elections of 4247, they only polled around 30,000 votes and won no seats. Though after more campaigning and crowd funding, Factio Fortuna saw moderate success in the elections of 4251, polling 9,246,575 votes and winning 70 seats.

Augustus Tacticus was reelected Head Chair until the Leadership elections of 4254, when Decimus Cornelius Afer was elected to Head Chair. Under Decimus Cornelius Afer, Factio Fortuna would lose 3 seats, polling 8,073,417 votes, in the election of 4255, but Decimus would go on to become Caesar Senatus, which granted much credibility and influence. This became the Afer Era (4255 - 4266) in Factio Fortuna. Dacimus would go on to hold the office of Caesar Senatus until 4265 when he decided he would retire to pursue more personal time with family while entering a bi-partisan coalition government with In-Maera. In the height of the Afer Era Factio Fortuna held 301 (60.2) seats in the Senate and polled a max of 26,398,404 (60.98) votes.

After the retirement of Decimus Cornelius Afer, Octavia Livibia was voted in as Head Chair in the first run-off leadership election in Factio Fortuna. Octavia Livibia focused on strengthening the ties between Factio Fortuna and In-Marea as per the coalition government. Her time as Party Chair has so far been unimpressive in the Party's voter base for the lack of preventing moderate economic nationalization and her second term as Party Chair has been rumored to been rigged. The Selucian Minister of Justice has been reviewing the case in the weeks following the result.

Factions in Factio Fortuna Edit

As mentioned earlier, there are factions in Factio Fortuna. There are the Classical Liberals, Conservative Liberals, and as of recently the Libertarians. Each internal faction has it's own leader. The membership of an internal faction is determined by which internal faction they choose when filling out one's membership applicant card. The internal faction membership is counted at the end of every four years in January when party leader voting takes place.

The Classical Liberals believe that whatever the issue, government is not the answer. They vote to where the government has the least influence possible in a citizen's daily life, or if that isn't an option, they try to give the issue off to the local governments to decide.

The Conservative Liberals differ slightly in that they are slightly more conservative with policy, but still believe the government isn't the answer to a solution. They agree with the Classical Liberals economically but differ slightly socially.

The Libertarians don't believe the government should be involved whatsoever, not even at the local level, on issues. Similar to the Classical Liberals, they agree a citizen ought to do as they please, but should be held accountable to law and their own morals as the other internal factions believe as well.

Faction Leader % of Factio Fortuna Total Members
Classical Liberals Octavia Livibia 43.1% 51,443
Conservative Liberals Valentina Paeta 39.4% 47,027
Libertarians Lars Ramio 17.5% 20,888
