Early Micronationalism and Retirement
Christian has been a micronationalist since his early youth. He entered into the hobby during his middle school years, and has continued the hobby into University. In 2020, Christian retired from micronationalism for a short time, but entered back into the hobby for personal reasons.
Christian is credited with single-handedly founding the Grand Duchy of Letzembourg, later gaining help from a few close friends and external observers. His early practice of forming diplomatic relations with various Micronational entities served him well, earning him a good reputation within the micronational community. After the foundation of Letzembourg, he then sought recognition from the Empire of Karnia-Ruthenia, where he would eventually gain Karno-Ruthenian citizenship, and annex his project into the Empire.
Christian obtained Pavlovian citizenship in February 2018. Also in February 2018, he was appointed Polkovnyk of the Sts. Boris and Gleb Regiment of the Pavlovian Royal Guard. Shortly following his commission to the rank of Polkovnyk, he was granted the title of Count by HM Tsar and Grand Prince Alexander Feofanovič (IV), and given immediate jurisdiction over the Governorate of Aleksandropil. Christian was also placed as head of the Linguistic Department of the University of St. Achmed the Calligrapher.
Christian has been involved in numerous other micronational projects, such as the Federal Republic of Lostisland, and the Empire of Imvrassia. Aside from his duties in Pavlov and Karnia-Ruthenia, Christian also served as the Prime Minister of the Republic of Litvania until its union with the Kingdom of Cheskgariya.
Christian was born in the state of North Carolina, on 28 October, 2000. As his father was currently serving in the United States Marine Corps at the time of his birth, Christian was subject constant moving and traveling with his family. Christian has lived in the United States his whole life, however has lived on both the east and west coasts, and briefly in the state of Hawai'i. After 23 years of honorable service, Christian's father retired from the United States Marine Corps, and Christian's family moved back to the state of North Carolina, where they still currently reside.
Christian himself currently serves in the United States Army as a Combat Medic and Healthcare Specialist. Upon graduating secondary school one year earlier than intended, Christian enlisted into the United States Army to train under the Army Medical Regiment's Education and Training Campus. Upon graduation of his medical training, Christian was assigned to his first unit, working closely with doctors, physician's assistants, nurses, and dentists in a troop medical clinic. Christian is now attached to a Military Police company.
Christian is also currently enrolled in university to obtain his M.A. in Political Science, with a major concentration in Security Studies, and a minor in Russian Studies.
