James O'Connell Nash has lead a colourful micronational career, beginning as an aristocrat in the British Empire, before founding his own communist micronation, the Free Democratic People's Soviet Socialist Republic of Jocistan, of which he is Supreme Leader and Premier for Life. In the British Empire, he is a Lord in Anglestonia, a Duke in Great Pecuniam, and the Prime Minister of Great Pecuniam's Regional Kingdom. He was also the leader, or "Dark Lord" of the terrorist group known as the South Anglestonian Republican Army (S.A.R.A.), from October 30 2017 to April 5 2018.

Non-micronational life

Jocistan's Supreme Leader and Premier for Life is a keen historian and classicist.

Micronational career

Role in the Creation of the British Empire

James O'Connell Nash was one of the British Empire's three founders, the others being Lord Daniel Lyons and Lord Nicholas Hayes. They were Lords on Anglestonia, whilst O'Connell Nash was a Knight. Sir James was a key adviser to Lord Lyons, Anglestonia's Grand Duke and the Empire's Imperial Governor. Sir James is quoted by the Imperial New Service as having said on 26 October 2016 of introduction of the South Anglestonian calendar, "This is a glorious development in our great nation. I recommend it is implemented across the entire empire!".

Dark Lord of S.A.R.A.

However, on 17 December 2016, Grand Duchy of Anglestonia annexed South Anglestonia, a separate Imperial territory. Sir James had advised Lord Lyons against this, but was ultimately not heeded. Thusly, he was provoked to found the South Anglestonian Republican Army (S.A.R.A.). In a spirit of humour, he was then made an Anglestonian Lord by Lord Lyons, so that he could be known as the "Dark Lord of S.A.R.A.". In the ensuing war between the Grand Duchy, supported by the Imperial Federal Government, and S.A.R.A., Anglestonia deployed its entire nuclear arsenal, with Lord O'Connell Nash personally suffering a direct hit from one "nuclear bomb" but miraculously surviving. Despite having rebelled against the Empire - and refusing to finally surrender - Lord O'Connell Nash was not prosecuted, and retained all his titles and status.

First Attempt at Micronationalism

Having long been a key citizen of the British Empire, Lord O'Connell Nash came to desire creating his own micronation, intending it to be allied to the British Empire. In that spirit, he declared the independence of the Duchy of Pecuniam from the U.K. on 26 June 2017. He intended to make the Duchy a capitalist, aristocratic dictatorship.

In an unforeseen turn of events, however, this provoked a declaration of war and invasion from the British Empire and the Democratic People's Republic of Sholand. Pecuniam soon fell, and Lord O'Connell Nash was forced to accept the peace terms of the Treaty of Durham, whereby Pecuniam would become a dominion (or semi-autonomous territory) of the Empire, with him as the leader, or Duke, and Lord Hayes as Governor, appointed by Anglestonia. Again, despite being at war with the British Empire, Lord O'Connell Nash lost none of his titles or status.
