Ben S is the Minister of Defence, General of the Imperial Army of Essexia, a member of the Old Guard Party and a loyal monarchist. Ben is the only citizen of Essexia who previously held American Citizenship, however was born in the United Kingdom and resides in Essexia. His loyalty to the sovereign resulted in his appointment to the role. Ben is known in Essexia for his staunch isolationist stance.

Ben joined the micronation in late 2017 a few months after its creation, however wasn’t very active until recently during the New Year membership reforms in between 2018 and 2019. Throughout his membership, he has mainly voted in major votes, and has abstained from helping managing the country despite offers due to his lack of time and interest. However, recently, the reforms created more roles for other citizens, and he accepted the appointment of supreme judge, which he held until the Danbury Conference where he was replaced by Earl Finn of Hawarden.

Ben lives a relatively quiet personal life, and doesn't reveal much about his political opinions and voting preferences, only specifying he is pro monarchy. He has deep bonds with the USA, as his father is american and he hold American citizenship. He famously called both candidates in the 2016 US Elections “Sausages,” which is now a common phrase used to describe politicians in Essexia. Ben has a quiet personality, and is not known for being outspoken and loud unlike the Lords of Essexia.

In 2018, as part of the Lords Act, Ben was appointed a Lord for his loyalty and activeness. However in early 2019 he lost his seat in the senate as a Lord to Lord Moxham and therefore lost his title as a Lord.

After the 2019 Essexian general election, Ben gave away his seat in parliament and thus lost his lordship.

Ben was briefly a member of the WAR Party during the events of the Grey Weekend, but he is currently a member of the Old Guard Party.
