Colonel Carson Thomas Romanos Snyder MBE MP SDM GCE M1DS OTK GCE is the current King of the Kingdom of Northwood-Oregon and the Lord President of the Empire of Sayville. In terms of micronationalism, they are active within the Commonwealth of Sayvillian Regions where they were first exposed to micronationalism as a concept, they are also active in their own Kingdom of Northwood-Oregon.

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. He 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. 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.

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. 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.
