Carson I (Carson Thomas Romanos Snyder; born 26 October 2003) is the current King of the Kingdom of Northwood-Oregon and the Superior Judge of the Cupertino Alliance. Through their work in Northwood-Oregon and the Cupertino Alliance, they developed a reputation for professionalism amongst some in the community. They played a pivotal role in the readmission of the Empire of Sayville into the Commonwealth of Sayvillian Regions, the founding of the Kingdom of Northwood-Oregon and the writing of it's Canon Governing Document, and the writing of the Berard-Malloy Convention on Territorial Disputes.

Carson I founded the Kingdom of Northwood-Oregon on 29 September 2020 and grew it to comprise of over a hundred local citizens, nine member states, and a fair legislative background in under a year. Northwood-Oregon would join the Cupertino Alliance on 21 April as an observer state, where Carson I would act as the sole delegate until Northwood-Oregon was upgraded to full membership on 7 May, at which time they became the primary delegate. Working in the alliance, they were a primary reason that the Berard-Malloy Convention was written and ratified after the standing committee dealing with the convention fell into inactivity. Their work in writing the convention and during sessions would see them be recognized by the current Chair of the Cupertino Alliance, Logan Ross, by receiving the delegate class Cupertino Service Ribbon.

During the August Cupertino Alliance Chair election, Carson I was invited to join the campaign team of Dhrubajyoti Roy from Vishwamitra, where they acted as a high level campaign manager, although most of their work was in the background, leaving them out of any scandals of the election. After Roy's victory in the election, Carson I was considered for, nominated to, and later confirmed as the Superior Judge of the Cupertino Alliance on 16 August 2021. They would later nominate Phillip Joseph Pillin of Pibocip and Charles Burgardt of Sayville as their associate judges, both of whom were confirmed to the position.

Early life

Carson was born in Oregon, Ohio on 26 October 2003 where they were raised for their early life. Born into a religious family they were raised, and remain, Catholic, attending Sunday religious lessons. They have participated in musical theatre since age 9 in 2013. They were raised with influence from their family, being that they were the first, and only, born of their generation in their immediate family until the birth of his brother four years later. Never living even a street away from a family member in his youth, their family became a central point in their life. Throughout education, they had been typically placed in advanced or "Gifted and Talented" courses and was assumed to go into a field of engineering, despite this, a penchant for showmanship and debating was what guided, and still guides, most of their education and extracurricular choices.

Micronational career

While originally being based solely on the website NationStates, Carson got involved in micronationalism due to their involvement in the Commonwealth of Sayvillian Regions and influence from the King of the Sayvillians, Charles Burgardt.

Commonwealth of Sayvillian Regions

In the Commonwealth, Carson temporarily became the Emperor for the Empire of Sayville after the former Emperor abdicated suddenly. Due to issues of mass membership in the Commonwealth, however, most Sayvillian nations, or regions, were removed unless they could prove that they were active enough to warrant membership. It was during this time that Carson used some connections to help grow the Empire of Sayville, as well as abdicating the throne to another Emperor, Francis Karma. These changes eventually lead to the Empire of Sayville's re-entry into the Commonwealth of Sayvillian Regions. They would later be appointed to the position of Prime Minister within the Empire until the passage of a Constitution disbanded the position and they were appointed to the position of Lord President.

Kingdom of Northwood-Oregon

Carson had multiple independent ventures into micronationalism before the creation of the Kingdom of Northwood-Oregon on 29 September 2020. Most notably the Priminos Imperium, which had passed a constitution before falling into obscurity. They currently serve as the King of the Kingdom of Northwood-Oregon, where they have played a pivotal role in the creation of the Kingdom's duchies, principality, baronies, and its former free state. On 8 January 2020, they passed the Canon Governing Document of the Kingdom of Northwood-Oregon which they wrote along with Duke Grant Bruns.

Weisserian Commonwealth

After learning about the then unnamed Weisserian Commonwealth through their long time friend 'Space' after questioning him on his inactivity in the Osme Free State, Snyder joined the Commonwealth's Discord guild and was granted citizenship. Carson remained fairly uninvolved in local politics and the Commonwealth as a whole, only assembling the nation's microwiki page. After the passage of a new constitution in the Commonwealth after a coup by the founder, Adryvia, Snyder was considered to fulfill the position of Baron of Weisseria, a largely ceremonial position. They would lose the bid for this position to Logan Ross, and instead would become the Minister of Justice on 5 February 2021 under the administration of Prime Minister Space. This position would be short-lived, however, as Ross would later abdicate his position of Baron, with Snyder being placed in the position on 13 February. In their position, Snyder wrote and passed legislation to create the Order of the Weisserian Commonwealth and to establish an official style for the position.[1] During this time a new charter for the Commonwealth would be passed, extending the Baron's responsibilities to putting items to vote in the Commonwealth's assembly. After extended inactivity, Snyder declared Weisseria defunct on 26 June 2021.

Kingdom of Atiera

Carson became a citizen of the Kingdom of Atiera on 12 June 2021 before joining the Atieran People's Union after being invited to by party leader William Cooper. In the party, Carson would become National Director and participate as a convention delegate. Carson would go on to run for a position in the 2nd Parliament of Atiera in the riding of Gaia, but would lose in the election on the 25 July to Rory McPhail, whom achieved a majority with 72.7% of the vote. They were removed from the Atierian Discord server on 24 August, along with numerous other members, without update on the status of their citizenship until Atiera was dissolved on 25 August.

Empire of Oskonia

Carson I became a citizen of the Empire of Oskonia on 19 September 2021 and would announce their intention to run for the Deputertkammer, the legislature of Oskonia, on 21 September and would proceed to found the Oskonian Firecracker Party later that day. After multiple delays of the election and other internal issues, the government of Oskonia was dissolved by Chancellor Jayden Dagsa followed by Oskonia itself being dissolved by Emperor Tucker I.[2]

Principality of Galte

Carson I became a citizen of the Principality of Galte on 24 August 2021 in the state of Equitas. Carson I would run for a seat in the Chamber of Deputies in the riding of Equitas East for the Galtean People's Union, and would win the vote over their opponent Jan Muñoz.[3] Carson I would then be unanimously confirmed as the Speaker of the Chamber of Deputies. Carson I would then be declared Regent of Galte on 31 October by joint-resolution of the cabinet of ministers and Prince Michael.[4]

Political Beliefs

Carson has typically made it hard for a proper explanation of his political beliefs to be carried out. Their sarcastic and argumentative attitude has led to many of their friends, and others, being unsure where exactly they stand most of the time. They have only described themselves to few as a pragmatic monarchist, though others have taken to refer to them as both a monarcho-socialist and an enlightened absolutist.

A side effect of Carson's approach to their political beliefs is widespread worry surrounding their future political aspirations. With many worrying that they will become an oppressive autocrat. Despite this, some still admit that they would prefer them as a leader despite their notions of them.
