Following the October 2014 local election, numerous Austenasian politicians, including Kennedy, expressed the opinion that then Prime Minister [[Eri|Countess Eritoshi of Memphis's]] democratic mandate had lost its legitimacy, as the electorate that had chosen her to serve as Prime Minister had become a small portion of the Austenasian population. The Emperor concurred, and on 3 January 2015 announced that a general election would be held on 3 March 2015. On February 4, 2015, the Emperor confirmed two candidates for the general election: the incumbent, Countess Eritoshi of Memphis and the Chancellor, Lady Dux Brooklyn Kennedy.

Dame Brooklyn Kennedy DNVI DCJ IDA (born Joseph Kennedy; 31 January 1999) is a micronational stateswoman, diplomat, international judge and retired military officer who is the founder and current President of the Commonwealth of New Virginia. She is also known as the former and longest-serving Prime Minister of the Empire of Austenasia, having served from 2015 to 2020.

Kennedy attended the Molossian Naval Academy, where she received a degree in military and naval sciences, and the University of Saint Charlie, where she received a doctorate in micronational law. She had a successful Austenasian military career, retiring after almost five years of service as an admiral of the Imperial Navy; and has held various judicial appointments, currently serving as an Associate Justice of the Grand Unified Micronational.

Kennedy entered Austenasian politics on 16 August 2013 as Governing Commissioner of New Richmond, then an Austenasian Crown Dependency. She became a Privy Counsellor on 12 March 2014. When New Richmond became an Austenasian Town on 7 September 2014, she was declared Acting Representative. Once she was confirmed as a Representative in a local election on 12 October 2014, she began her quick rise to power, becoming Chancellor and eventually being elected as Prime Minister in the general election of March 2015. Kennedy was later re-elected in the February 2019 general election by an historic landslide of 86.84%.

Kennedy announced her impending retirement as Prime Minister and the secession of New Virginia on 1 November 2019, and later proposed the New Virginia Act 2020 to that effect. On 11 February 2020, the Commonwealth of New Virginia became an independent state and Kennedy assumed the office of Chairwoman of the Provisional Council, becoming New Virginia's first head of state and head of government. Following the enactment of the New Virginian Constitution, she was elected as the first President of New Virginia on 1 August 2020.

Dame Brooklyn has been consistently ranked as one of the most influential members of the MicroWiki Community, and ranked seventh on the October 2020 MicroWiki's Top 25 survey and eighth on the 2020 MicroWiki's 25 Most Influential. She was additionally named Dime Micronationalist of the Month for March 2019. Kennedy has served as a MicroWiki administrator since July 2020, having previously held the position from May 2014 to February 2020; additionally, she serves as an administrator of the Micropolitan Lounge.

Early life

Dame Brooklyn Kennedy was born to William and Kristie Kennedy on 31 January 1999, the first of two children. She spent her early years living with her mother, uncle and grandmother while her father worked to provide for his family over 200 miles away. Around the age of seven, Kennedy, her parents, and her younger brother moved to the area now known as Saint Josephsburg in New Richmond.

Kennedy's first venture into micronationalism occurred as a young elementary school student, when she established the Playground Kingdom with the help of some friends. She was declared sovereign of the Playground. Her friends, who formed the Playground Army, conquered the playground. This kingdom later faded away as young Brooklyn and her friends grew older.

Early career

On 28 January 2013, Kennedy established the Federal Republic of Montania. It joined the Confederation of Saint Luke and Amager soon thereafter. She quickly rose to power, serving as fourth and final head of government of that state. After the collapse of Amager, she led a coup in Montania and established the People's Republic of Montania.

Months later, Montania became one of the founding states of the Ashukov Federation. Kennedy served as President of the Federation starting 25 May 2013. She won the presidential election after her sole opponent, Edward Jacobs, withdrew his candidacy. On 22 September 2013, she lost the second Presidential elections to Edward Jacobs. However on September 25, Kennedy was appointed Prime Minister of Ashukovo by the newly elected President Edward Jacobs. She later resigned.

After two months of absence from Ashukov politics, Kennedy was appointed Foreign and Home Minister in the Ford Cabinet and Supreme Judge on 25 January 2014. On 25 May 2014, she became the first person on to be appointed Prime Minister twice. She resigned in early September 2014 to focus on her Austenasian political career and renounced her Ashukov citizenship on 2 October 2014.

Austenasian career

Kennedy joined Austenasia as a Governing Commissioner in August 2013, when she ceded a small, unpopulated strip of land in what is now North New Richmond to the Empire. The land was declared to be the Crown Dependency of New Richmond, and Kennedy was appointed its Governing Commissioner. New Richmond remained a Crown Dependency for over a year, eventually annexing the adjacent land, thereby giving New Richmond a population of two. On 7 September 2014, New Richmond acquired the former Ashukov city of Saint Josephsburg, increasing the population of New Richmond from two to ten, and an Act of Parliament made New Richmond, along with Shineshore, an Austenasian Town. Kennedy was made Count of Greater Richmond and Acting Representative of New Richmond in Parliament. On Independence Day 2014, Kennedy was made a Caesar of Austenasia, and was appointed the Emperor's deputy for the North American Crown Dependencies.

Chancellor

Following Independence Day, Kennedy ran unopposed in the October 2014 local election, and was appointed Chancellor thereafter. She presented the Speaker of the House of Representatives Act 2014, which established the office of Speaker of the House of Representatives. She also laid the foundations for ambitious Treasury reform which was later enacted when she became Prime Minister.

Campaign for Prime Minister

Following the October 2014 local election, numerous Austenasian politicians, including Kennedy, expressed the opinion that then Prime Minister Countess Eritoshi of Memphis's democratic mandate had lost its legitimacy, as the electorate that had chosen her to serve as Prime Minister had become a small portion of the Austenasian population. The Emperor concurred, and on 3 January 2015 announced that a general election would be held on 3 March 2015. On February 4, 2015, the Emperor confirmed two candidates for the general election: the incumbent, Countess Eritoshi of Memphis and the Chancellor, Lady Dux Brooklyn Kennedy.

Kennedy established her campaign team, Kennedy for Prime Minister 2015, with Adam von Friedeck as his chief adviser. The campaign team used social media extensively throughout the campaign, setting up a website and a Facebook page. Kennedy also released a platform wherein she stated that her campaign was non-partisan and that she invited all Austenasians, regardless of political affiliation or conviction, to support her.

Her campaign was effective. On 4 March 2015, Kennedy became Prime Minister of the Empire of Austenasia with 68.3% of the vote.

Soon after she assumed the office of Prime Minister, Kennedy established her staff, the first of its kind in the history of the Prime Minister's Office. Adam von Friedeck, Kennedy's former chief adviser, was made Chief of Staff, and then Lady Legate Eryn Lewis was made Deputy Chief of Staff. Kennedy and von Friedeck appointed various members of the former campaign team to staff positions.

Kennedy's term was marked by several reforms to the government structure of the Empire, two constitutional amendments, the dissolution and formation of various ministries, the foundation of the now-defunct Imperial Navy, various annexations, and the general increase in the Empire's influence in the MicroWiki community. Kennedy was re-elected as Prime Minister in 2019 by a landslide vote of 86.84%, and continued to serve until the 2020 general election in which she did not contest.

Kennedy announced her retirement from Austenasian politics in November 2019, and a general election to determine her successor was scheduled for February 2020. HSH Prince Dionisiy I of the Town of Theodosiopolis was elected as Prime Minister. At the time of her retirement, Kennedy was the second longest serving Prime Minister in Austenasian history.

New Virginian career

Following the secession of New Virginia from the Empire of Austenasia on 11 February 2020, Kennedy assumed office as Chairwoman of the Provisional Council of New Virginia, becoming the first head of state and head of government of the Commonwealth.

Personal life

Kennedy lives in New Richmond. She is a classically-trained choral and instrumental musician. She produces and records EDM and hip-hop with her cousin, Alex Francis. She is an avid fan of college basketball, a military enthusiast, and is the former executive officer of her high school's Army Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps battalion, holding the rank of Cadet Major prior to graduation. She is a self-professed Anglo-Catholic and serves as the Bishop of New Richmond - the leader of the Anglican Connexion of the United Protestant Church of New Virginia. She is also a confirmed member of the Episcopal Church.

Kennedy is a bisexual transgender woman, having come out to the micronational community in March 2021.

Military career

Kennedy, a graduate of the Molossion Naval Academy at Spyglass Hill, has served in various nations' armed forces. She served as a private in the Domanglian military in 2012 and as a colonel in the Ashukov Army for a brief time in 2014.
