The Founders are a major citizen faction and a political party in the city of Columbia, they are an antagonistic group in the video game BioShock: Infinite. Their name arises from the fact that they see themselves as the true founders of the city, and they attempt to model their ideals after the founding fathers of the United States.

Started by religious leader Zachary Hale Comstock after Columbia's succession from the United States, the party promotes ultra-nationalism, religious fanaticism, and extreme xenophobia. They become engaged in conflict with the resistance group known as the Vox Populi, which later results in an all-out war.
