If you mean the US, several parties have been short lived. For example, the Anti-Federalist party only lasted from 1789-1792, the American (also known as Know-nothings) party lasted only from 1854-1858, the States Rights Democratic Party (Dixiecrats) only lasted 1 year in 1948, and the American Nazi Party only lasted from 1959-1967.

What are the political features of Hawaii?

Historically there have been three main niches of parties: Right-wing, Moderate, and Left-wing or Contemporary. The Hawaii Republican party the oldest and single Right-wing party and has been the sole party at times in Hawaii's history. There have been two moderate parties in the history of Hawaii the Hawaiian National Reform party and the Democratic party of Hawaii. Left-wing or Contemporary parties tend to have short life spans lasting a few decades. It should be noted that because these parties may not hold seats, they are not necessarily powerless in influencing the government, the Communist Party of Hawaii used strike actions while the Aloha Aina party of Hawaii used petitions. Most officers of the federal and state governments have been historically elected from the Democratic Party of Hawaii and the Hawaii Republican party. Municipal charters in the state have declared all mayors to be elected in nonpartisan races.

Did George Washington do anything to stop political parties from forming?

No he did not, but that was because it was not in his power to do so. He was of the Federalist philosophy, but the Federalists were not an organized political party like today's parties are. Essentially the Federalist and Republican party (of Jefferson and Madison) were just men of like-minded philosohies who worked together to make the government into what they thoguht it should be. As far as stopping political parties from happening, not only was it beyond anyone's ability, but it might have been considered unconstitutional under the First Amendment, as violating free speech and assembly and redress of government.
