Time in politics


James' first major position in Roscamistan was becoming the first Premier of Mervue, an autonomous province within Roscamistan, on 1 April 2021, he later became Prime Minister of Mervustan, the successor position to the Mervue Premiership, on 27 April 2021. He became the first Chief of the Defence Staff of the Roscamistan Defence Forces on 1 May 2021.

Leader of the Coup

Main article 17thMayCoup

Things were good until 17 May 2021, when he was frustrated at the President of Roscamistan, Andrew Brotherton, making laws directly for Mervustan more and more. He, along with the Chancellor of Galway City, Major Kayden Conboy, and the Deputy Minister of Defence, Dean Merritt claimed Andrew Brotherton was but not limited to, a communist, evil, a dictator and destroying the autonomous status of Mervustan province. By the end of the school day, Andrew Brotherton had been overthrown by James, now leader of the rebel faction. James then became the second President of Roscamistan and Kayden Conboy became the second Vice President of Roscamistan. James Irwin was now in firm control of both the National Cabinet of Roscamistan and his Provincial Cabinet in the Province of Mervustan.

After the coup and James’s government

After the coup, James Irwin solidified his control over Roscamistan, keeping Andrew Brotherton but with the low role of Minister of Internal Polish Affairs.

Over time, his predecessor Andrew Brotherton began to regain his influence, becoming for the first and as of January 2022, Co-Vice President, first in rank, with Major Kayden Conboy, and serving from 8 June 2021 to 23 June 2021.

Over time, it became apparent that James was showing disinterest in the Government. But he did try to use his powers. In Mid June 2021, when Norma Foley, the Irish Minister for Education visited the school that most the government (excluding Culann Burke), went to. When the teacher asked who wanted to talk with Irish Minister for Education, James put up his hand and to roughly quote " I should because I’m the President of Roscamistan", after a few laughs from people in the classroom and jeers by Andrew Brotherton later, the teacher said no and a different person from the class went to talk with the Irish Minister for Education.

After Andrew Brotherton kept calling for his resignation, he finally gave in, knowing he couldn't stay in power anymore. In a lost document which is still being looked for that James Irwin and Andrew Brotherton made, James transferred the powers and duties of the Presidency, disregarding the line of succession, Andrew Brotherton became the 3rd President of Roscamistan at 10:55 A.M, 23 June 2021, and at 11:00 A.M, 23 June 2021, Kayden Conboy was sacked as Vice President. James also resigned from the Premiership of Mervustan, vacating the office. This ended his time in Roscami politics. Two days later, the sixth class pupils of 2020/2021 left the school for the last time for their summer holidays.

After this, his legacy was initially disgraced but in recent times, his reputation in Roscami politics has been restored.

Return to the Military

In September 2021, James Irwin persuaded by his brother Evan Irwin, his successor as Prime Minister of Mervustan and the First Secretary of State Adam Flannery, to join the Mervustan militia, along with his neighbour and friend Patrick Conway and the Jim ' the imp ' Hearne, and once again became an active captain of the Roscamistan, but this time subordinate the Administrative Officer of Mervustan as the Commander of the Mervustan Milita.

Personal life

He was born in 2008 and is the middle child of the family. His brother Evan Irwin is the 1st Viscount Mervustan and was the 2nd Prime Minister of Mervustan, staying so from 28 June 2021 until the 3 November 2021, when he was sacked and Deputy PM David Moore succeeded Lord Mervustan as Prime Minister.
