New Libertarian National Monument[]

National Monument Of New Libertaria

Inner Forum at New Libertarian National Monument.

The New Libertarian National Monument was commissioned in New Libertaria under the reign of King James I and competed under the reign of King Moses I. The monument is located in the city of Lambton Quay. The monument incorporates modernistic elements with a distinctive architecture influence of Ancient Rome and Greece. The monument pays tribute to the concepts of faith and reason that are critical building blocks of the national identity.

The monument is based on the concept of the roundhouse, which is a type of house with a circular plan, originally built in western Europe before Roman occupation. The New Libertarian National Monument expanded on this concept with a large building constructed from tungsten steel and glass, accented in highlights of alabaster and marble. It is circular in shape with entrance points from all directions, enabling individuals to converge to the center of the monument. The diameter of the building is measured at 2,175 feet (662.94 meters). Upon entering, individuals are drawn in by vast expanses of open space, leading to the Inner Forum. The main focal point of the Inner Forum is the statuary and fountain exhibit exemplifying the principles of the nation’s founding.

National Ecumenical Cathedral in Weishaupt.

The National Ecumenical Cathedral was inaugurated during the reign of Queen Deborah who ruled New Libertaria in the mid-19th Century. Construction was briefly halted during the Reign Of terror under Benedict II. Upon the establishment of Ecumenical Council, construction resumed and was completed under the leadership of Grand Vizier Marcellus Clemenceau.

Although rooted in the traditions of Judaism, the structure has served to incorporate all faiths in the national sense of ecumenical mission that has defined its religious culture. The building has been designated by Parliament and the Crown as a “national house of prayer” and the building has, over the years, played a role in uniting Libertarians through both religious and secular services hosted in its precincts.

Over the years, the cathedral has undergone interior renovation while maintaining the integrity of the outer façade. The National Ecumenical Cathedral is noted for its architectural style which combines both the intimacy and form of much contemporary architecture with the grandeur and magnificence of medieval cathedrals.

National War Memorial in Lambton Quay.

Lambton Quay is the location of the nation’s National War Memorial, known as the The Cenotaph Of Heroes or, simply, The Cenotaph. The building honors all of the fallen veterans who have died in the nation’s wars. The memorial was dedicated under the reign of King Moses I.

The design of the building is designed in a classical "Beaux-Arts monumentalism" style of architecture with a limestone exterior. The foundation was constructed using sawed granite, and the exterior ground level walls are made of Bedford stone. The main doors at the top of a large set of stairs are made from ornamental bronze, and the walls of the first floor lobby are finished in Caledonian Stone, which was quarried in the state of New Caledonia. The first floor corridor and the grand stairway are finished in travertine that was imported from Italy. The floors of the corridors and stairway treads are made from terrazzo and Caledonian marble, and the balusters and railing are made from Italian travertine and Italian tavernelle clairemarble.

At night, the top of the Cenotaph emits steam illuminated by bright orange lights. This effect creates the illusion of a burning pyre and can be seen for up to fifteen miles. The funding for the constantly-lit eternal flame is supported by the Royal Trust For Memorial Of The War Dead.
