The how-to-how.
Now, the 1st thing you gotta do it open up to your vicky2 folder. You need to go to the commons part of the Victoria 2 folders. From there, you need to go to the defines_luna folder.Don't panic of you see this. This is the next step in the guide. Now, you need to open up this folder using notepad for this to work! When you are given the options to chose which program to open, select notepad. After that, you'll see something like this:

Now where you see it circled, you can change the ending date there! You could make it goes for along time. But be awhere of that happens if you do. When you 1st pass January 1st, 1936, all of the liberal partys will go defunct. Then, when you pass the 2000 mark, all of the political partys will go defunct. Also, the game will start to get bizarre (think tech balance, nations are meant to be kept behind or they'd be too strong have the time to catch up; nations that prioritize tech will see that become useless as others reach them) and it tends to get a bit laggier, but other than that it's all good.

So there you have it! I hope you found this usefull!

Make the end date 1835

You can do a lot more than just make the game longer with that very same file. On my campaign I made tech extremely easy to get, infamy is no more and prestige gain for victories is phenominal. After one war Canada gained nearly a million prestige. War Goals also are very easy to add and Great Powers can join in on other wars with nations that don't like them. This might sound like a cheat but it actually makes the game much more fast paced. There are always wars going on and the countries change rapidly as they lose and win wars.

Just look around the file to see how to do it.

Well at least it's only the liberal parties who go defunct and not any important ones :D

The reason that probably happens is New Parties and ideologies come into place over time, and Paradox probably marked 2000 as one of those changes, the leading party does not change ideologies untill it is voted in or out, or you assign that party again manualy.

If you want to HAVE a political party it will. It just goes blank.
