NS Parliament Character Database [IC/OOC]

Welcome to the Parliament of Saint Hilda!

What is this?
This is a character-driven RP in which we roleplay as politicians in a fictional nation. This RP, now the NS Parliament, has origins in the former NSG Senate. We have two simple starting guidelines:

    1. We are the island nation of Saint Hilda, located in the northern Lesser Antilles near Guadeloupe.
    2. A parliamentary system of government is being established, taken from Sweden, from which we just gained independence and with which we share a monarch.
The rest is up to the players! In this RP, we will legislate and politick, ally and backstab, and so much more! It is your choice what your character will be. Prominent and outspoken? Shady and quiet? Progressive? Conservative? Fascist? Communist? Centrist? Government? Opposition? Crossbencher? Journalist? Activist? The list goes on!

As soon as you submit you application, unless rejected, you become a Member of the (imaginary) Parliament of Saint Hilda (or Sankta Hilda in Swedish). You can then feel free to begin participating in the RP. You can do things like drafting a bill, voting on bills, and joining or creating a political party.

Where does it all go on?
We have four threads. There's this one, for applications, creating/joining parties, and all OOC discussion about our RP. There's the Chamber, where bills are debated, amended and voted upon. There's the Office, where bills are presented, discussed before they reach the Chamber, and kept before and after going to the Chamber. Finally, there's Life Outside, where all RP that happens outside the Chamber (campaigning, news stories, daily life, etc) goes on. Finally, if you want to flesh out your characters, use our Character Database in Forum 7. Any other threads that may be created also go in Forum 7. Our official Discord server can be found here.

Parliament OOC/Apps
As the name suggests, for applications and OOC discussion.
Parliament Chamber
For debating, voting, and amending bills. Strictly IC.
Parliament Office (Archived)
This thread has since been locked, but it contains old bill drafts.
Life Outside
For all RP outside the Chamber, from a walk in a park to a bomb planted in a restaurant. Strictly IC.
Character Database (You are here)
For cataloguing all characters, from politicians to companies to pets. Mostly IC.

Who's in charge?
Our administrators run the RP and their decisions are final.
We don't have strict rules, other than that godmodding is prohibited and our admins are fully in charge.
In the case of rule violations or unacceptable conduct, the offender will be warned. After two admin warnings within a month, disciplinary actions may escalate to a suspension or eventually a ban.

Carl von Leslie (NPP-Gustafshamn)

Postby Vedastia » Mon Jun 03, 2019 9:17 pm

Furst Carl Vilhelm Nils Göran von Leslie af Jäskis - National People's Party
Image

Account Name: Vedastia
Occupation: Member of the States General, property developer, diplomat

Party Position(s):
Leader (previously Deputy Leader)

Positions in Government:
Prime Minister

Constituency: Gustafshamn
Political Ideology: Moderate national conservatism, monarchism

Family:
Wife: Princess Astrid Elisabeth Victoria von Leslie af Jäskis (née Douglas, born 14 August 1967)
Children:
  • Prince Anders Per Vilhelm von Leslie af Jäskis (born 7 January 1993)
  • Prince Gustaf Carl Ludvig von Leslie af Jäskis (born 18 March 1995)
  • Prince Fredrik Gabriel Axel von Leslie af Jäskis (born 18 March 1995)

Background: Prince Carl Vilhelm Nils Göran von Leslie af Jäskis (born Karl Wilhelm Nikolaus Georg Fürst Leslie, 19 June 1960), better known as Carl von Leslie, was born in Darmstadt, Hesse, to Countess Beatrix of Castell-Rüdenhausen and Prince Andreas Nikolaus Peter Wilhelm von Leslie on 19 June 1960.

The Princes von Leslie descend from the Earls of Kemnay, a branch of Clan Leslie. A younger son of the first Earl of Kemnay immigrated to Sweden from Scotland in the 17th century, became a cavalry officer, and was ennobled as the Count of Jäskis (in Finland) for his military service. Several other branches of Clan Leslie have been ennobled by Sweden and Russia in a similar manner. After Russia conquered their Finnish estates in the 18th century, the head of the family chose to become a Russian subject. That branch of the family assimilated into the Baltic German nobility, were eventually elevated to princes in the Russian nobility, and resided in Saint Petersburg until they fled to Germany as a result of the October Revolution.

Carl's father, Andreas, was a lawyer active on the right of the national liberal faction in the Free Democratic Party of Germany after the fall of Nazism who eventually became a Member of the Bundestag for Hesse, later crossing the floor to the Christian Democratic Union after the FDP chose to enter a coalition with the Social Democratic Party. Carl and his elder brother, also named Andreas (later "Andrew" after immigrating to Britain), attended Schule Schloss Salem in Salem, Baden-Württemberg. Here, Carl decided to reconnect with his patrilineal roots and became heavily interested in both Swedish & Russian culture, entering a student exchange program with Sigtunaskolan Humanistiska Läroverket. He chose to attend the University of Vienna instead of the University of Bonn as his father and brother had done, earning a Bachelor of Arts in political science, becoming a member of Corps Saxonia Wien, and entering an exchange program at Stockholm University. During this time, his father had been killed in an auto accident caused by a drunk driver. Von Leslie later earned a Master of Science in Foreign Service from Georgetown University.

After much consideration, von Leslie immigrated to Sweden. He chose to enter the Swedish Foreign Ministry and was posted to Russia. He decided to stand for election to the Riksdag in 1991 on the Moderate Party list and cleared the threshold for election. He remained in the Riksdag for eleven years before choosing not to stand for his seat again in 2002.

During this time, he had frequented Saint Hilda as a vacationer, eventually purchasing land to build a large second home in the town of Gustafshamn. Seeking better weather, he chose to make Saint Hilda his primary residence after retiring from electoral politics and eventually became a citizen of Saint Hilda, keeping his Swedish citizenship. He decided to have Gustafshamn built up to attract & accommodate tourists and earn additional income for both himself & other residents of the village. With his influence, von Leslie decided to reenter electoral politics and stood for Gustafshamn's municipal assembly, winning his seat; the same body would later appoint him to the the municipal executive committee and make him its chairman (analogous to a mayor). He eventually stood for election to the States of Saint Hilda and won his seat overwhelmingly, retaining his seat in the States General after independence. On 4 July 2019, he was selected Prime Minister by the States General after new elections were held that resulted in a hung parliament.

Von Leslie lives in Gustafshamn with his wife, the former Countess Astrid Douglas, and his youngest son, Fredrik. His three sons, Anders, Gustaf, and Fredrik, all boarded at Sigtunaskolan Humanistiska Läroverket. His eldest son, Anders, attended Stockholm University, earning a Bachelor of Laws; Gustaf attended Uppsala University and is an ordained Lutheran priest residing in Gustafshamn; and Fredrik attended Cornell University, earning a BS in Hotel Administration.

Numerous expats and foreigners began clamoring for space in this newly-appreciated village, with many Scandinavians and North Americans, especially ethnic Scandinavians from the Midwest, choosing to make it their second home or retirement home. The main village of Gustafshamn has a permanent population of 1,926 native or naturalized residents, with 547 foreigners owning vacation or retirement homes. Other large villages in the constituency include Jungfruholm on the island of the same name and Nygrenborg further inland.

Marius Lucas Forsman - Centrum-Progressiv
Image

Account Name: The Miaphysite Church of Coptic Archism
Occupation: Parliamentarian, Community Organizer

Party Position(s):
Party Chair

Positions in Government:
N/A

Constituency: Ölhusby
Political Ideology: Radical Centre

Family: Not brought into politics
Background: Forsman's family were originally brought to Saint Hilda to work on a sugar plantation. In 1847, when Sweden outlawed Slavery in its overseas colonies, the state bought the freedom of slaves for 80 Riksdaler each. Marius was born in 1979, his father a dock worker and his mother a waitress. His first language was Antillean Creole. Marius had to work exceptionally hard in his schooling, and now speaks four languages fluently, Antillean Creole, French, English, and Swedish. Initially, Marius wanted to work in medicine, and earned an international scholarship to study at Emory University in the United States.

After earning a Bachelors Degree in the USA, Marius returned to Saint Hilda to be closer to home and family. He ended up shifting goals, and earned a masters degree in education, from the small Fort Ulrika College. In 2004 Marius started working as a teacher in his home town of Ölhusby. He primarily taught language, though also handled a number of other subjects at sometimes very small and underfunded schools. He also became a volunteer, working in local campaigns to clean the streets, feed the hungry, and other efforts. He started organizing unofficial night classes in 2008, teaching literacy and European languages to adults who had never had the opportunity to learn.

He came to a local spotlight when, in 2010, he saved a man's life with CPR during one of his night classes. In 2011, there was a write in campaign from local people to elect Marius to the regional council. He accepted the draft and began campaigning himself, claiming he had been inspired to make greater change. He was elected to the council, and his efforts were partially responsible for the establishment of a new medical clinic in central Ölhusby, as well as creating a formalized system of night classes and upskilling workshops, funded by the regional council.

In 2013, Marius ran for Parliament, as an independent candidate. He was swept into victory, and his first term was generally seen as a success. In the lead up to the 2017 election, it was clear that there was some level of support for Marius's message around Saint Hilda, not just within his own constituency. The Progressive Party was soon formed around him. After some negotiation, an electoral alliance with the minor Centre Party was signed, and a reasonable amount of success was seen, including Marius carrying his seat. In 2018, the two parties formally merged, and Marius was elected as the chair.

Background: Born in a poor neighborhood of the capital, his mother was a domestic worker and his father a longshoreman. Salomon was raised with the values of hard work and determination, to protect his family and loved ones, and to trust in God. His parents saved to send him to a mostly white private Christian school where, despite racial slights and some ostracism, he excelled in his classes and earned a scholarship to the national university. He studied business administration and graduated with honors. He gained his MBA in the United States and returned to Sankta Hilda to marry his sweetheart, Noemi. He worked for a few years in a distribution company, but he felt like he should be doing more. He took his savings and secured a loan from a bank to start a chocolate company. He knew there was exploitation of black workers in many chocolate companies' supply chains, and so he vowed to treat his workers well and have a special focus on hiring people of color throughout his company. After a modest start, his company took off and he was able to use some of his profits to start a non-profit organization making small loans for underserved populations to start businesses. He is an elder in his church and loves his family.
Faith: Independent Evangelical Protestant

Likes: Football (soccer), the dignity of work, racial justice, curry goat, church, chocolate

-Emily, 12, daughter
-Jesper, 7, son
Background: Lisa is not a native to Saint Hilda, she moved with her parents to the island from Gothenburg, Sweden in 1974 at the age of 3. Her father, an engineer, settled in Oscarsvik where he worked for the largest mining company on the island, Larsson Gruvdrift AB, and her mother managed to find a job as a teacher, having taught elementary school in Sweden. As Saint Hilda University did not open until 1997, Lisa attended the Stockholm School of Economics where she graduated with a Masters Degree in Business in 1996. After a brief internship at the Swedish Department of Industry, she moved back to Oscarsvik in Saint Hilda where she got a job at an international shipping company operating in the town. She also joined The Greens, managing the campaign for the party's Candidate in the local elections and organizing events.

In 2001, she launched a business aiming to promote ecotourism with hiking tours inland together with her partner Johan. It was successful and employs 5 people excluding Johan as of today, focusing on young tourists who like hiking in particular. One of her core issues as a member of The Greens has been pushing for the promotion of ecotourism, to encourage the vital tourism industry in Saint Hilda to ensure the sustainability of the Island's natural biodiversity. In 2007, she was elected to the municipal council in Oscarsvik for the Green Party. She mainly worked with issues concerning the local environment, education, cultural events and participation in local democracy. As one of the party's handful of elected representatives in Saint Hilda, she gained prominence in the Party, and became a member of its Executive Committee in 2010.

After a poor showing in the election of 2015, she decided to run for party leadership and succeeded in doing so at the Party conference of 2017. As such, she is currently serving her first 4-year term as Party Chair and was elected to parliament in the 2019 election. Her campaign primarily directed itself towards the youth, and she uses social media for political purpose effectively.

Account Name: Zaporizhian Host
Elected Representative: Lisa Forss

Population: 1,964
Ethnic Composition:
- Swedish (53%)
- Danish (9%)
- Island Carib (6%)
- Afro-Hildan (5%)
- Norwegian (5%)
- Finnish (4%)
- British / British Carribean (3%)
- Other (15%, predominantly other Northern Europeans, Hispanic and Asian ethnicities)

Background: Oscarsvik is a Saint Hildan town located on the windy East side of the Island. A small fishing village until the mid-1890s, it quickly grew following the discovery of coal and bauxite. Mining and the growth of a shipping industry generated wealth for Oscarsvik and by the mid-60s it had grown to become one of the islands largest towns. While traditionally a stronghold for socialist parties, the growth of the Green movement in Saint Hilda originated in Oscarsvik where pollution was a major problem by the mid-80s. Today, Oscarsvik has a population of old Swedish families that settled the town concurring with the growth of the mining business and expatriate Scandinavians, with significant smaller minorities. Its population is one of the youngest in Saint Hilda, largely due to the small Saint Hilda University being located in the town and the growth of international tourism to Oscarsvik the last two decades. As a result, the town has plenty of nightlife, cafés and shopping venues. It is famous for its tram line and its current MP is Lisa Forss, the third Green candidate to be elected to represent the town since the party was founded in 1983.

Hello, it's Zap! If you read this it's most likely on a P2TM roleplay thread. I'm not a native English speaker (or writer for that matter), so if you notice mistakes I am happy to receive feedback. I know I'm prone to dangling modifiers, capitalization mistakes, use of commas, and other errors. If I were to use a semicolon, there's a 97% chance I just put it there because they look fancy; I have no idea how they work. If it's spelling it just means Grammarly wasn't cooperating. Thanks.

In 2014 he ran in a by-election to the nation's Parliament, becoming the MP for the constituency of Hagalund, consisting of the town and nearby villages. He has since been an enthusiastic voice on the left of the nation's politics, passionately arguing in favour of a number of left-wing causes.

Arne Ohlsson - SLP/The Radicals
Image

Account Name: Costa Fierro
Occupation: Politician

Party Position(s):
- Member of Parliament for Havse (1971-2001, 2011-Present)
- Leader of the Radical Party (1977-1993)
- Deputy Leader of the SLP/The Radicals (2016-Present)

Positions in Government:
- Prime Minister (1985-1993)

Constituency: Havse
Political Ideology: Radical centrism, green centrism, ordoliberalism

Family:
Background: Arne Ohlsson was born on January 29, 1946 in Miami, Florida, to well known businessman Gustav Ohlsson and his wife, Margarethe. Gustav Ohlsson ran the largest shipping company in Saint Hilda and owned several commercial cargo ships, taking the island's exports around the Caribbean and the United States, and returning with many of the essentials the island needed to survive. Arne was the second of six children, and the oldest son. Despite this, his father wasn't intent on him running the family business, as he himself could rely on his brothers to continue on after he passed away.

Arne's childhood was very privileged, as he grew up within the confines of the wealthy elite on Saint Hilda. Despite this, Arne was always present at his mother's charity events from a young age, and as he grew older, actively participated in organising them. He says its likely where he got an interest in politics from, especially policies relating to both the workers his father employed and their families. He attended private school initially but didn't fit in, instead attending public school, where he was bullied by some of the students because of his wealthy background. Academically Arne wasn't particularly gifted and was considered to be fairly average.

He didn't demonstrate a particular interest advancing his education beyond high school, and instead volunteered with the Army at age 18, serving in the territorial forces on the island between 1964 and 1970, rising to the rank of Lieutenant. He was deployed numerous times in response to hurricances and tropical storms, helping to reopen roads and reestablish communications, we well as assist in distrubuting aid to affected residents. He was honourably discharged on July 17, 1970.

Arne's foray into politics was backed by his father's wealth and his family's recognition on the island, and this aided his quest for a seat in Parliament, which he won easily in a by-election in 1971. Initially a junior member of the NPP, Arne was one of the many more centrist members who left the NPP in 1973 and founded their own party, the Radical Party. Arne was one of six members who were returned to Parliament in the 1973 general election, and formed a junior coalition partner with the People's Labour Party (PLP), although Arne was not given a cabinet position. He would later rise to become the leader of the Radical Party in 1977, in time for that year's election. However, neither the PLP nor the Radical Party managed to obtain a large enough majority in Parliament, and the NPP would be able to govern alone. Arne used this as an opportunity to not only shore up his own support, but also improve the party's inner workings, promoting stability in contrast to an increasingly unstable PLP.

This work paid off and in 1981, the Radical Party became the second largest party in Parliament, and Arne became the Leader of the Opposition and was given the task of putting together a shadow cabinet. Increasing economic mismanagement by the NPP lead to the Radical Party assuming power in the 1985 general election, after a recession brought on by both the Latin American debt crisis and the American recession of the early 1980's.

Arne's new government sought about revamping Saint Hilda's economy. He began with the privatisation of non-essential public services between 1986 and 1988. He also lowered taxes on small businesses and increased taxes on larger ones, passing a law that all companies operating or generating revenue from St Hilda were liable for corporate income taxation. In a controversial move he broke up his father's shipping company, approving the sale of many of its components to companies based in the United States. Despite some protests, he presided over a spike in economic growth, and this translated into increased government revenue. This was used to balance out government expenses, including debt reduction. He established targets for debt reduction and a commitment to maintaining a government surplus.

The Radicals were reelected in 1989 and Arne used this to promote more social policies. He increased funding for social welfare and pensions, as well as law enforcement to combat what he described as the "scourge of drugs" in Saint Hilda. He greatly pursued investments in public transport, including a public bus system for the entire island. In 1991, Arne introduced the first comprehensive vehicle taxation and tarriff system, intended to reduce congestion on the island.

In 1988, the Radical Party merged with the Social Liberal Party to form the SLP/The Radicals, a controversial move by two of the largest parties in Parliament. Unpopular with many of its supporters, the merger is widely regarded as the primary reason behind the loss in the 1993 general election.

Despite the economic growth of the late 1980's, a recession in the 1990's severely affected Saint Hilda, and this translated into the Radical Party losing the 1993 general election. A dejected Arne delivered his concession speech to his supporters, before being unceremoniously dumped from the leadership two days after Parliament resumed.

Arne returned to a period of relative obscurity in Parliament between 1993 and 2001. Athough he was reelected in 1997, his majority in Havse was slipping. In 2001 he was voted out. This loss of confidence affected Arne greatly, and he slipped into a deeper isolation. He spent several months at his modest cottage on the south side of the island overlooking the sea before announcing his candidacy for the Fort Ulrika City Council in 2004.

Now on the council, Arne persued much the same gameplan as he did in Parliament, pushing for increased funding to public transport and recycling initiatives, and authored the council's plan to be carbon neutral by 2025. Arne would serve on the council until 2010.

In 2011, Arne stood in the seat of Havse again as a member of the SLP/The Radicals, and served as a senior member of the party until 2016, when incumbent leader Viktoria Ljungstrand appointed him as deputy leader.
Faith: Arne is a member of the Church of Sweden from birth, but does not attend outside of Easter and Christmass Mass.

Likes: Dry whiskey, coffee, his cottage on the south side of the island.
Dislikes: Anti-science types, anti-environmentalists, etc.

Lance Darrow - People's Front of National Sovereignty

https://cdn11.bigcommerce.com/s-e9sst20 ... 69.jpg?c=2 (Apologies. My smartphone doesn't want to do this correctly.)

Account Name: Rebels and Saints
Occupation:: Former Owner and CEO of Vision United

Party Position(s):
None as of yet.

Positions in Government:
Member of Parliament

Political Ideology: Nationalist, capitalist, sympathetic to royalism, but reluctant to make this view public.

Family: No children or spouse.
Background: Lance was, as a child, highly intelligent, but also manipulative. He excelled at games such as Chess, defeating most opponents he could find. His constant need to manipulate others drew heavily on the need to feel that he was powerful, though this need for power was in turn derived from a wish to do good and lead helpfully. However, he had a constant end-justifies-the-means mentality which led him to ruthlessly seize power at every opportunity. In Middle and High School, he used his intellect to prank teachers and fellow students at every turn, while remaining fully anonymous.

After graduating High School, Lance briefly considered College before turning the idea down. He did not feel the need to study more. He instead founded a small, technology focused business by the name of Vision United. After receiving a large investment from a mysterious businessman by the name of 'Prince', Lance was able to quickly build his company from the bottom up, eventually becoming one of the prime competitors in the business arena.

Lance eventually became disinterested in running his business, and sold it to Apple for a large amount of money. It is unknown what Lance has been using the money for since. Meanwhile, Lance moved from his home nation of the United States to a small Carribean island, where he has since quickly driven himself into politics.

Using his natural manipulativeness in combination with his already high flame, he earned a seat at Parliament with little opposition, support the PFNS.

Do you regret selling Vision United? No.
What have you done with the wealth earned from selling Vision United? What I use my money for is my business. Quite literally. Regardless, it's none of your concern.

Robin Björne Johnsson - National People's Party
Image

Account Name: Martune
Occupation: MP

Party Position(s):
Member

Positions in Government:
MP

Constituency: Golden Fields
Political Ideology: Christian Libertarian Monarchism

Family: N/A
Background: Robin was born the only son to parents Torbjörn and Agata Johnsson in Stockholm, Sweden on January 28, 1980. Raised in wealth and prestige, the family moved its home and operations to Saint Hilda when Robin was 13. There they had a house built upon fertile fields of which they hired hands to maintain. They grew cash crops off all kinds and attempted to make work for their hands less miserable than standard.

When Robin turned 19 he moved back to Stockholm to study at Uppsala University in Law (mainly). After 5 years of work at the university he received his Masters of Law and left for Saint Hilda. When he arrived home he saw an atmosphere of independence and republicanism, neither of which he wanted. He loved Sweden and the King and didn't want to see a split. But he couldn't prevent that, so he works as an MP in Saint Hilda's parliamentary body for his constituency.

Faith: Lutheran

Likes: Monarchy, Christianity, Sweden, Pugs
Dislikes: Republicanism, atheism, apathy, radicalism

The UK shouldn’t just remain in Europe, it should replicate Europe: proportional representation, adopt the euro, join the Schengen area, shift to Western European Standard Time (and scrap DST while we're at it) and become a republic (eventually). We’ve always sat at the edge of Europe when we should sit at its heart!

Oscar Sigmund Holme Agricultural Alliance Party
Image

Account Name: Puertollano.
Occupation: Member of Parliament.

Party Position(s):
Leader of the Agricultural Alliance Party,
Deputy Leader of the Christian People's Congress

Positions in Government:
Member of Parliament

Constituency: Hilde.
Political Ideology: Agrarian Socialism, social conservatism, traditionalism, protectionism, regionalism, rural interests.

Family: Wife and 3 children.
Background: Oscar Holme comes from a family of lifetime farmers, with the Holme family being a 3rd generation of farmers in Hilde. Oscar received a public school education, finishing school early and never went to university. Instead, like his father and his father before him, helped on the family farm, which focused on livestock. His father, Fredrik Holme founded the Agricultural Alliance Party during the 1960's, to compete to local council and mayoral elections. Through this political outlet, Oscar's father was elected as the Mayor of Hilde. Oscar's personal political awakening occurred during the 1990's, when extreme weather ravaged the lives of people in Hilde. The lack of help to the farmers in the area lead Oscar uniting a grass roots campaign of local farmers, business owners and workers to win the seat of Hilde on an AAP ticket. Oscar Holme won, winning the very first parliamentary seat for the Agricultural Alliance Party. Since this point, Mr Holme has been involved in expanding the party and looking to extend its influence in St Hilda. He has been the Member of Parliament for Hilde since the 1990s.
Faith: Catholicism.

Likes: Beer.
Dislikes: Chai Lattes.

Hilde
Image

Account Name: Puertollano
Elected Representative: Oscar Holme

Population: 3,000
Ethnic Composition:
97% White European
2% Afro-Caribbean
1% Other

Background: Hilde was and always has been a farming town. It was established by Swedish settlers during colonisation, and has since maintained a heavily majority-white population. It serves as a major hub for cattle, livestock, sheep and pigs, but there are many crop farmers who also operate in the tropical climates. Particularly banana cultivation. Farming employs the majority of the population of Hilde, but other major employers are local businesses, logging and construction. Its population are of relatively low-to-medium income, with very few residence in the upper-brackets of wealth. Due to the small population in relation to the size of the constituency, Hilde was one of the largest municipalities in all of St Hilda because of the low density population.
Religion:
98% Christianity
1% Native Beliefs
1% Other

Hagalund
Image

Account Name: Crylante
Elected Representative: Sven Sköldsvik

Population: 1,507
Ethnic Composition:
-Swedish (68%)
-Afro-Hildan (10%)
-Norwegian (9%)
-Island Carib (5%)
-British (3%)
-Jewish (2%)
-Mixed (3%)

Background: Located on the northeast coast of the island, Hagalund was founded by Swedish merchants in the 18th century as an outpost. Initially it was a small trading post and fishing village, growing in the late 19th century as a ship-building town. This would become the town's main source of income for the next few years as the town grew to become one of St Hilda's largest. A strong union movement grew up in the town, as well as containing the island's first co-operative enterprise - North Hagalund Shipbuilders. These were prime factors in the town being a stronghold for the left, voting in a left-wing representative in all but two elections thus far.

In the 1970's and 80's, the town saw a decline as the shipbuilding industry around it fell, leading to the town becoming a pocket of deprivation through much of the late 80's and 90's, with almost 40% of the population being on welfare payments in 1994. However, the town has seen a change in fortunes over the last few decades, receiving a boost from the tourism industry. This has led to a complete regeneration of the town centre, with many shops and bed-and-breakfasts setting up and much of the native population living in modern apartment blocks. The town's pier, formerly used to launch ships, has become the island's largest amusement pier and one of the town's key landmarks.

Henry John Wallstone Sr. DBA PhD - Regnat Populi
Account Name: Emazia
Occupation: CEO and main stockowner of Wallstone Industries, Chairman of Regnat Populi, Ex-Chairman of Free Society Senator of New Colchester

Party Position(s):
Chairman

Positions in Government:
N/A

Constituency: New Colchester
Political Ideology: National-Capitalism/Authoritarian Neoliberalism/Neoconservatism

Family:
Wife: Elizabeth Wallstone
Twin Brother: Jonathan Wallstone
Younger Brother: Lecter Wallstone
Son: Henry Wallstone Jr.
Son: William Walstone
Background: Born to Marcus Wallstone, Henry was set to have a life of business and politics ahead of him, as he was the eldest son of the three (by only about 12 minutes though). Most of his childhood was spent reading books and he was taught at home by a tutor. He attended Oxford University to gain his doctorate in business administration, which he did successfully. In fact, his thesis, known as the "Political Business", one which focused on lobbying and influencing the political climate in order to change laws to its benefit, was considered revolutionary in neoliberal circles. He also did economics and another revolutionary thesis known as "War and Economics" popular among the right. Even before business, he was already influential in economic circles thanks to his theses. Before assuming control of the business, he was an economic lobbyist, Chairman of the thinktank Free Society. However, upon his father's retirement, he was given the business and Free Society's chairmanship was given to Jonathan, his twin brother, with whom he is extremely close with. Upon taking control, he began to put "Political Business" and "War and Economics" into practice, expanding Wallstone Arms globally, becoming the main supplier of the British, French, German and Saint Hildan militaries. Many call this his great achievement, as Wallstone Arms expands to this day.
Faith: Evangelical Protestant

Likes: Red wine, Christianity, Agnosticism (doesn't like per se, just respects), Judaism, Gold, Diamond, Victory, War, Reading.

New Colchester/Göllenberg
[img]*ADD%20PICTURE%20NO%20BIGGER%20THAN%20350x350px%20HERE*[/img]

Account Name: Emazia
Elected Representative: Henry J. Wallstone

Population: 89,254
Ethnic Composition:
55% Swedish
39% British
5% Afro-Caribbean
1% Other

Background: Created as New Colchester in 1662 by Puritans exiled by King Charles II, it started off as a British timber settlement, used to hold control against expanding Spanish and Swedish influence in the Caribbean until the Industrial Revolution where large reserves of coal were found and mines were set up. The area suddenly became hundreds of times more productive, as factories were set up to build all manner of things, although mainly guns and clothing. This is approximately the time when the Wallstone family settled into New Colchester, establishing themselves as coal, and later oil and steel magnates. Their fortune grew to the millions off of New Colchester and they are effectively the reigning family of New Colchester. In 1812, to fund the Napoleonic Wars, the United Kingdom sold New Colchester (at the protest of the Wallstones) to the Swedish, who named it Göllenberg. It was mainly used as an industrial backbone and a military base, even with its small size. Soon, in 1919, a large factory known as the Wallstone Compound which provided (and still provides, to this day) most of the island's jobs. It first started off as a large hybrid coal-iron mine with a steel factory (1919-1962), to a petroleum refinery linked up with oil wells (1962-Present). Of course, there's also another Wallstone Compound, which was set up in 1942, created as a small arms factory and provides the main supply of arms to the Saint Hildan military.
Religion:
91% Protestant
5% Catholic
3% Rastafarian
1% Other


EDIT: Increased New Colchester population so it's more realistic.
