Andrew "Andy" Irons or known by his regnal name, Andrew I is the current reigning Emperor of Austrovia and was Secretary of Foreign Relations until December 17 of 2017. He currently serves intermicronationally as the Mayor of West Posaf, High Lord of the Kadelieort, and a member of the Federated States of Transterra Emergency Assembly.

Andy started his micronational career in 2015 with the creation of the Federation of Pugnasia and since then he has been involved in numerous other micronations like Abelden, Iustus, and Nordkavn.

Micronational career

Pugnasia

The Federation of Pugnasia was the first micronation Andy was apart of. Pugnasia lasted from August 18, 2015 to November 19 of the same year. He was appointed Prime Minister by his friend, Tyrone Lee, who was serving his first term as President. As Pugnasia grew, so did political tension. After Lee founded the Democratic-Republican Party, Andy founded the Royalist Party, which was an alliance of right wing citizens. After the 1st Pugnasian Election, members of the Royalist Party planned to overthrow the government. After Lee found out, he immediately removed Andy as Prime Minister, starting the Great Pugnasian Civil War.

The Civil War was a short one, resulting in a stalemate. An agreement was signed, which split the Federation into two seperate countries. The East was under the control of Lee, while the West was under the jurisdiction of Andy. The East eventually collapsed, and was annexed by the West, forming the Great Californian Empire.

Great Californian Empire to New Pugnasia

Andy ruled as the first and only Emperor of the GCE. Since there was a small amount of people as citizens, Andy acted as the Secretary of State, Foreign Affairs, and Defense. He hosted the debate of the 1st Prime Minister Election and the first cabinet meeting. In July 2016, he dissolved the Empire, signing the Return Act. He created the small nation of Scovia as a result. Scovia lasted only a few weeks, serving as his own personal nation.

New Pugnasia

Andy, with Tyrone Lee, leader of the Pugnavian Order, and Josef Hernandez, leader of the Republic of Josefvania, all signed the Greater Federation Agreement, creating New Pugnasia. New Pugnasia quickly began to grow once the word got out. On October 28, 2016, the First Election was held, with Josef and Andy winning both popular and electoral votes. He was quite ineffective as Chancellor of the Greater Federation, since it will be eventually dissolved.

Later on in November, Josef declared himself Emperor, with full support of Andy. He was appointed the first and only Chancellor. He served from November 18 to May 4, 2017 when New Pugnasia was officially declared inactivate. As Chancellor, he oversaw the creation of the New Pugnasian Imperial Navy and became the first Grand Admiral. Although small, the Imperial Navy consisted of actual boats-two rafts- and was engaged in only one battle, the Battle of Lake Arc, which was the last battle of the Lawson Insurgency, when Jack Lawson rebelled against the monarchy to install former Emperor Josef as the new President, despite his anti republican stance.

Present

Andy was apart of one more micronation, the United Kingdom of America, before his current nation, Austrovia. He served as Prime Minister before its dissolution. He is currently the only Emperor of Austrovia. He also serves as Reichstag Member for Hydraria as a Independent, but was elected as a member of the Freedom Party of Austrovia. He was previously a National Populist but left the party due to differences in political ideologies. On January 20th, 2018, Andy was coronated as Andrew I and officially became monarch, even though he had been monarch since October. On June 16th, 2018 Andy was kicked out of the Freedom Party due to the Imperial Includement Act, which bans the Imperial Family from holding political offices and from joining politcal parties.

In June of 2018, Andy announced the dissolution of the New Order Party and joined Iustus Now. He dissolved the party due to it not getting any support from the citizens. He later became the Chairman of Iustus Now after Nicholas Randouler's short leave from Iustus. He resigned as leader of Iustus Now on December 3rd, 2018 and later joined the new Faire Party.

Nordkavn

On the 29th of May 2018, he was elected as the first Statsminister of Nordkavn, leading the First Federal Cabinet. Since becoming Statsminister, Andy had begun submitting proposals to the National Forum to create salaries for workers. The proposal was never voted on since Nordkavn became inactive the following months.

Personal Life and Views

Andy is a fanatical fan of Star Wars. He discovered the movies when he was four and has loved them ever since. He is also a writer and loves to learn history, particularly European and British History. Andy also loves to study maps and his able to name most European countries and capitals.

Irons is politically considered a conservative. He believes in national conservatism and monarchism. He was previously a liberal but after 2016, he became more conservative after protests against Donald Trump became more violent and extreme. His switch from left to right was exactly after the Berkeley Riots of 2017, which was caused due to the controversial conservative speaker, Milo Yiannopoulos after he planned a speech there. He is now a frequent critic of socialism, communism, and social justice. He supports Free Speech and the 2nd American Amendment, which protects the American people's right to own and sell firearms.

He claims he's an unofficial member and supporter of the Republican Party and a supporter of the Constitution Party, but has co-founded a satirical party called the "New Federalists", which he is vice chairman. Although a supporter of the Republican Party, Andy believes in the creation of an American Monarchy. Andy declared his support for Travis Allen, a representative for California 72nd State Assembly District, for the California Gubernatorial Election of 2018. This is due to his 5 point plan, which Andy believes will "Save the state".

After the June 5th Primary for California Governor, Andy endorsed businessman John Cox after Allen's defeat. Cox is one of two candidates that will advance to the November Election. Cox is joined by Democrat Gavin Newsom, who is was the Lieutenant Governor under Governor Jerry Brown.
