Colonel Carson Snyder is the current King of the Kingdom of Northwood-Oregon and the Lord President of the Empire of Sayville. In terms of micronationalism, he is active within the Commonwealth of Sayvillian Regions where he was first exposed to micronationalism as a concept, he is also active in his own Kingdom of Northwood-Oregon.

Early life

Carson was born in Oregon, Ohio in October of 2003 where he was raised for his early life. Born into a religious family he was raised, and remains, Catholic attending Sunday religious lessons. He has participated in musical theatre since age 9 in 2013. He was raised with influence from his family, being that he was the first, and only, born of his generation in his immediate family until the birth of his brother four years later. Never living even a street away from a family member in his youth, his family became a central point in his life. Throughout education, he 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 his education and extracurricular choices.

Micronational career

While originally being based solely on the website NationStates, Carson got involved in micronationalism due to his involvement in the Commonwealth of Sayvillian Regions and influence from the King of the Kingdom of Sayville, 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. He would later be appointed to the position of Prime Minister within the Empire until the passage of a Constitution disbanded the position and he was 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 September 29, 2020. Most notably the Priminos Imperium, which had passed a constitution before falling into obscurity. He currently serves as the King of the Kingdom of Northwood-Oregon, where he has been played a pivotal role in the creation of the Kingdom's duchies and a principality.

Current Positions

Political Beliefs

An example of Anti-Carson Propaganda, Present in a Jackbox game.

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

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