Background: During the Satherian Civil War, Hans Schmidt served as a Colonel for the Imperialist forces. His Orderly thinking and precise timing was often a deciding factor in his many victories.

Fun facts: Hans Schmidt helped rebuild Sathera after the civil war, and is often regarded as being one of the new empire's 'founding fathers.'

Titles: Imperial Ambassador of the State of Sathera

Responsibilities: Presiding over Sathera's WA Duties, along with International Diplomacy on the world stage.

Interests: Hans has always had a love for Languages, History, and Diplomacy in general, In fact, one of his favorite things to do is learn a language, see how it developed through the ages and how it relates with it's cousins. Hans also enjoys Plays, Operas, reading, and Cold weather with a passion.

Once said:"I've found that Languages often define a people by how the languages themselves are formed. For example, French speakers are often very romantic, very fluid. German speakers, on the other hand are very mechanical, very orderly. And English speakers? Simply Insane."

Nomadic Peoples of Damanucus
World Assembly Delegation

Representative Horgen Dush (retired)
Age: 45
Birthplace: Frebenere, Grandall Province
Family: Wife Clarissa, 43, plus two sons, Erimir, 23, and Markus, 18
Education: Bachelor of International Studies/Bachelor of Law
History: Horgen was one of the primary followers of Linard Skyre during his Independence Tour, so much so that Linard eventually invited him as a member of the touring team. Because of his qualifications, he was able to assist Linard in his drawing up of the Damanucus Constitution and the Claim for Independence, both of which were, after signing, rolled into the one document. Noting Dush's qualifications, Linard also suggested he take on the role of WA Representative for Damanucus, an offer he quickly accepted.
Fun facts: Horgen received his qualification at a university outside of Damanucus, prior to its independence; the University of Triolin was not established until after secession had been granted. Despite this, he is partly responsible for the curriculum for the International Law and Politics units at the University of Triolin, especially the topics Law in the World Assembly and Basics of Resolution Drafting for the World Assembly, and it is expected that, when he retires from the WA, he will assume a more permanent position as lecturer for those units.
Once said: "So in other words, you want to legalize it internationally...again."

Representative Intern Stephanie Orman
Age: 27
Birthplace: Corgen, Holseen Province
Family: None
Education: Bachelor of International Studies (UTril)
History: Stephanie is one of the newer members of the delegation, taking the recently opened position of Representative Intern. She completed her studies at the University of Triolin, although she did take six months off from her studies in order to travel Damanucus.
Fun facts: Stephanie didn't take to the floor as part of the Delegation until the debate surrounding the Biological Weapons Accord, after Horgen became worked up during a speech. She has since co-chaired with Horgen on issues, and it is assumed she will undertake his position when he leaves.
Once said: "Conservative? Damanucus? We are nowhere near the conservative norm that you believe us to be."

Dr George H. Lemming
Dr Lemming is an observer on Assembly Procedure from the University of Triolin, and as such is not technically part of the delegation.

Targen Mach, MP
Targen is the Minister for International Affairs in Damanucus, as is not a member of the Delegation. He does, however, occasionally pay visits to the WA office "just to check up on things." He was also the one who arranged Stephanie's intern position.

Employment: Since his graduation from ZMA, Peter has served as Commander of Zaklen’s military. Having success in several short battles against terrorists, and earning a decisive victory, with the assistance of the Kingdom of Gotha, in a war against the nations of Bataile and Nelkazium, Peter proved himself worthy of one day becoming Supreme Ruler. In order to give him some political experience, his father appointed him as Zaklen’s WA representative.

Fun facts: He likes to eat pony meat
Politics: All the infidels must pay increased taxes, or get the hell out of Zaklen. Prostitutes should be fed to snow leopards.
Titles: Commander of Zaklen’s Military, WA representative for Zaklen

Pamela Elizabeth Howell

Age: 64

Born: Basingstoke of Oxfordshire, Connopolis

Education: Graduated with honors with degrees in both political science and international relations from Halewood University; she later recieved a Juris Doctorate from the University of Wolverhampton.

Employment: Former name partner at "McCarthy and Howell" - Connopolis' fourth largest law firm, former undersecretary of Primary and Secondary Education at the Connopolian Minsitry of Education, former representative in the Connopolian Upper Parliament, representing Oxfordshire County.

Political views: Center left, moderately liberal.

Titles: Mrs. Former Undersecretary, currently Chief of World Assembly Affairs, Ambassador-at-Large.

Responsibilities: Presiding over the Connopolis' activity in the World Assembly, as well as their diplomatic relations in the international theatre.

Interests: To the Connopolian media, Ambassador Howell is known as the "slippery eel," due to her tendancy of dodging embarrassing questions. She is also well known for her taste in fashion; She was once featured on the front page of Connopolis' premier fashion magazine for women of a certain age - Sixty and Sexy™; the magazine has since filed for bankruptcy, most likely due to its limited audience.

Behavior: Ambassador Howell is well known for her prim behavior, and holier-than-thou attitude, although those close to her would be the first to dismiss such claims. Howell was also dubbed "the Compromiser" during her tenure as a senator in the Upper Parliament, due to her work in ending the much disputed division of Greater Cumberland. Perhaps her most notable factor, Ambassador Howell is infamous for her soft-spoken, yet scathing rebuttals, which she reserves for necessary instances; albeit, Howell's predilection is to refrain from arguing whenever necessary.

Once said: "All the engimas of the universe - the quintessential dillemas of life, and the the trivial matters of the moment - can be resolved with the help of a teacher, and the cooperation of their student."




Time for a new ambassador! With Forshaw retiring, a "Mrs. Pamela Howell" is jumping in to take his place. :)

HRH Prince Padraig of Obar Chùirnidh
His Royal Majesty's Ambassador to the World Assembly


Age: 27

Birthplace: Baile Átha Cliath, Athfhotla

Education:
- Graduated valedictorian from King Cormac I Preparatory School, 1997
- Graduated with A-levels in Government & Politics and History from King's College, 2002
- BA in Political Science from Baile Átha Cliath University, 2006
- MA in International Relations from Baile Átha Cliath University, 2008
- PhD in International Relations from Baile Átha Cliath University, 2010

Employment:
- Lord Vice Chancellor of His Royal Majesty's Government, 2010-present
- His Royal Majesty's Ambassador to the World Assembly, 2012-present

Titles:
- Prince of Obar Chùirnidh
- Lord Vice Chancellor of His Royal Majesty's Government
- His Royal Majesty's Ambassador to the World Assembly

Responsibilities: As His Royal Majesty's Ambassador to the World Assembly, Prince Padraig is responsible for presiding over all Athfhotlan affairs in the General Assembly and the Security Council. As Lord Vice Chancellor of His Royal Majesty's Government he is also responsible for assisting the Lord High Chancellor, his older brother Prince Reilly, in presiding over the Athfhotlan government -- but this has over the centuries become a mostly ceremonial role unless the Lord High Chancellor has a prolonged absence or becomes incapacitated. Prince Padraig also has a number of ceremonial responsibilities as Prince of Obar Chùirnidh.

Politics: Prince Padraig doesn't fit neatly into either the national sovereigntist or international federalist niches, nor does the Kingdom he represents. Prince Padraig tends toward international federalism on matters related to global disarmament, free trade, and environmental policy, but he often sides with national sovereigntists on matters that he believes should be left to individual member nations -- which include many issues related to sapient rights and social justice. He fiercely opposes micromanagement of member nations' domestic affairs and any proposal that might weaken the Athfhotlan absolute monarchy domestically. On the Kingdom's internal issues, Prince Padraig tends to be center-left and often disagrees with his more conservative father and older brother.

Behavior: Prince Padraig is extremely stubborn, has a hot temper, and can at times be overly dramatic. He approaches most proposed General Assembly resolutions and every Security Council resolution with skepticism and it is typically quite difficult to persuade him to change his mind. His temper and flare for the dramatic shouldn't be mistaken for vulnerability. Prince Padraig is a cut-throat politician and shrewd negotiator. He has taken to spending most of his off time in the Strangers' Bar, where he can be found engaging in heavy drinking, heavier flirting, spirited but casual conversation, and the occasional defenestration. He may or may not be a bit smitten with both (yes, both) Princess Christine and Lord Raekevik of Alqania.

Background: Prince Padraig was born Padraig Cormac Aedan, Prince of Obar Chùirnidh, on March 24, 1984, and is the second child of His Royal Majesty King Cormac VI and Queen Consort Brigid. He is second in line to the Athfhotlan throne behind his older brother, Prince Reilly of Cúige Laighean. A very bright student, Prince Padraig excelled in history, government, and literature, and graduated magna cum laude from the prestigious Baile Átha Cliath University in 2006. He is fluent in three languages: Latin, Spanish, and Ursine. He was appointed Lord Vice Chancellor of His Royal Majesty's Government in 2010, as is traditional, and was appointed His Royal Majesty's Ambassador to the World Assembly on March 7, 2012. Prince Padraig has one older brother, as mentioned, and seven younger siblings. He is single and has no children.

Interests: Prince Padraig played football (soccer) throughout his school years and still enjoys the occasional recreational game. Prince Padraig also enjoys camping, hiking, rock climbing, fishing, hunting, horseback riding (non-sapient only), and just about any outdoor activity. He's a fan of horror movies and gothic/horror literature; some of his favorite authors include Shirley Jackson, Stephen King, and Anne Rice. Like his father, Prince Padraig is a great lover of Athfhotlan folk music and attends the annual Athfhotlan Folk Music Festival in Baile Átha Cliath every year.

Personal Life: Prince Padraig has a reputation for partying into the wee hours of the morning and his behavior has caused some scandal to the Athfhotlan Royal Family. In 2010, he was briefly detained by police for drunk and disorderly behavior before being released into the custody of palace guards. Prince Padraig shocked the Royal Family and the entire Kingdom again in December 2011 when, in the midst of a controversial public debate over same-sex marriage, he nonchalantly announced to a television reporter that he is bisexual. His coming out of the closet is widely credited with persuading his father, his older brother, and the House of Nobles to enact same-sex marriage legislation in January 2012. It's rumored that his father and brother agreed to appoint him to the World Assembly primarily to keep him out of trouble at home -- at least if you believe Athfhotlan tabloids.

Once said: "The World Assembly may be a snake pit, but I'm an anaconda."


Kenny, Athfhotla is replacing United Celts, just FYI.

Ambassador - The Most Hon Kurt Demodand
[IIwiki entry]

Image


Age: 54

Birthplace: Xarenia, Garotch, Radiatian Federation

Family:
His father was an engineer who helped build the Minadri River Dam in the state of Garotch, the largest dam in Radiatia. Little else is known about his family, as family is seldom important in the highly individualistic Radiatian culture

Education: MBA, University of Saku

Employment: Began working as a civil servant for the Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Later served as a Member of Parliament for the Conservative Party for 12 years, later became leader of the Conservatives and soon led the party to an election victory.

Served as Prime Minister of the Radiatian Federation for four years, and simultaneously served as Federal Minister of Foreign Affairs during that time.

Lost the next election and retired from parliament, returning to work in the civil service for the Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Background: A polarising and controversial figure in Radiatian politics, Demodand was accused of corruption but also responsible for major reforms which transformed Radiatia into a modern, first-world economy.

Although Radiatia is not actually a member of the WA, he took on the post of Observer Ambassador partially due to his experience in foreign relations, partially due to his prestige in politics, and mainly so that he didn't have to face trial at home for corruption and electoral fraud.

Fun facts: Demodand owns a chain of brothels and strip clubs in Radiatia

Politics:
Right-wing. Member (and former leader of) the Radiatian Conservative Party, however Radiatian conservatives are liberal by international standards.

Titles: The Most Honourable

Responsibilities: Bugger all. Radiatia isn't even in the World Assembly. Demodand came to escape the justice system, and the current government let him go rather than have to put up with having him remain in the Radiatian Federation

Interests: Flirting, drinking, pleasures of the flesh....

Once said: "I'm not sexist, but I don't think women should be in power. Well okay I am, but I'm only sexist against women who I don't find attractive."

Staff: Demodand is served by a personal assistant, a couple of diplomats and his "girls"

Ambassador - Derek McGregor

[NSwiki entry]


Image

Age: 40

Birthplace: Omerville, Bojema

Family: He is married to Faith McGregor (neé Keane), grand-niece of Jareth Keane, President of Ossitania, and has two daughters, Ariana and Amena.

Biography: The youngest of nine children of a small mining family, Derek was born in 1972 in Omerville, a mining city in the autonomous community of Bojema in northern Ossitania. His father, Gerry McGregor, was a prominent trade unionist and the sole representative of the Socialist Party of Ossitania during the negotiations which transformed the Liberated Thinkspace of Ossitania into the Independent Commonwealth. As a result, Derek was politicsed from a very young age, though his interests initially lay more in worker's rights than in international politics.

After working in the mines for two years to earn the money, Derek enrolled in University College Sabrina, where he studied political science and English. It was during his college years that Derek switched allegiance from the Socialist Party to the Labour Party, causing a rift with his father that continued until his death ten years later. His college experience also caused Derek to shift his focus to international politics, leading him to follow his bachelor's degree with a master's in international relations at Prophetic University in Varanus, a qualification which bagged him his first diplomatic posting as the Secretary of the Ambassadaor to Pilaria.

Derek distinguished himself as a keen diplomatic mind and eventually served as the Ambassador to Na Laochra, Norivas and Sanctaria before he was asked by colleagues in the Labour Party to stand for election in 2007, where he was returned as a member of the House of Representatives for Bojema and subsequently appointed as Junior Minister of Sport and Tourism. After three years at this post, he was transferred back to the Diplomatic Corps to serve as Deputy Ambassador General to Eli Burke of the New Democratic Socialist Party and succeeded him as Ambassador General upon his death in early 2012.

Politics: Derek is a moderate International Federalist and a major advocate of Ossitanian federalism, which is based on principles of decentralisation and optionality. He is a social democrat and supports mixed economies with a prominent free market ethos. Unlike most of his cabinet colleagues, Derek is a militant secularist and opposes his party's coalition with the Komodoist Party.

Titles: Current: Ambassador General of the Diplomatic Corps of Ossitania (2012-present); Former (from most recent): Deputy Ambassador General of the Diplomatic Corps of Ossitania (2010-12), Junior Minister of Sport and Tourism (2007-10), Ambassador to Sanctaria (2006-07), Ambassador to Norivas (2005-07), Ambassador to Na Laochra (2002-05), Secretary of the Ambassador to Norivas (1998-2002), Secretary of the Ambassador to Pilaria (1996-1998)

Responsibilities: The Ambassador General of the Diplomatic Corps holds final authority on all aspects of foreign policy and coordinates Ossitania’s response to international developments. His duties include the strategic establishment of diplomatic missions in other antions, the assignment and deployment of diplomats to these missions and the advancement of Ossitania's international policy objectives through the promotion of international agreements and the proposition and opposition of legislation in the World Assembly.

Interests: Being of Siroci descent, Derek has a huge interest in Siroci culture, including language and music; he is fluent in Siroci and can play over ten traditional Siroci instruments. He is also a proficient player of tennis and chess and frequently contributes to political debates in his nation through a monthly column in the Ossitanian National Review.

Heh, made ya look. Four months' worth of updating completed, including a couple "replacement" ambassadors. Just a reminder folks, if you are replacing an ambassador you've already posted a profile for, just make an entirely new post, maybe linking to the old one. Don't just edit the old post, because I'll never see it, and also it's kinda gay completely erasing and replacing a post from two years ago.

For now, "IIwiki" links will be left out of the directory, because there's no guarantee this new site won't be abandoned after a few months' time. WikiStates links (assuming there are any) will still be included.

WA Ambassador Arthur Potter
Age: 50

Birthplace: Goldburg, Ridre Island, Felix Terra

Family: Arthur has no living family, he was an only child and his parents have died of old age. He once had an attraction to famous fencer Jessica Ride. She promptly cut him with her sword. This is a very disturbing matter to Arthur, and discussing it within his earshot is not advised.

Education: Advanced degree in Diplomatic Studies from Perkins University in Las Magnas.

Employment: Before his ambassador job, he worked as the manager of a small grocery store. How he achieved this position is unknown, but probably has something to do with his inherited wealth and keep-going-until-you-drop-dead attitude.

Background: Arthur was born on May 25th, 1962, into a rich family. His father was the owner of a successful law firm, and his mother was one of the lawyers. His family was slightly right-wing (and, by "slightly" we mean "downright fascist"), but he happened to be a left-leaning centrist, so he didn't really agree with the way his parents achieved their wealth. He used his diplomatic ability to start a small grocery store. But when Felix Terra joined the WA, he applied to be the ambassador. As the Supreme Chancellor was looking for anyone with a degree in Diplomatic Studies, he was accepted. In 2012, he tried to win the Freedom Party primary for Supreme Chancellor, but lost, only receiving 7% of the votes.

Fun facts: Arthur still owns his grocery store, but only operates it in his free time, which is low. As such, it has fallen into disrepair. Also, he narcissistically likes Harry Potter, who's last name he may or may not have had influence on.

Politics: Left-leaning centrist.

Titles: Current: Ambassador to the World Assembly; Former (from most recent): Candidate for Supreme Chancellor of the United States of Felix Terra (2012), store manager (1995-?)

Responsibilities: Voting on and writing proposals and running his grocery store.

Interests: Diplomacy, economics, poker

Once said: No notable qoutes-when he speaks, it's usually to say aye or nay.

Staff: One notable:

Allie is 49 years old, and something of a tomboy. She is Arthur's closest adviser. Some speculate that the two may be involved romantically with each other. This has never been proven, however. But one wonders...
