Keene is a small, pleasant city in southwest New Hampshire with a population of roughly 23,000 people. The inhabitants are mostly liberal-leaning but a growing number of libertarians loosely affiliated with The Free State Project and/or Free Keene are making Keene their home. Keene is famous for liberty activism and civil disobedience, including weekly anti-war protests and daily 420 rallies in Central Square. Liberty activists have basically turned the Central Square in the middle of town into a temporary autonomous zone.
