Crown Minister Ben is a renowned technological genius and has worked on many projects for Essexia including working for its space agencies (Previously CRESER and SPAC, now EAST). He is the current First Minister of Essexia, and the leader of the Weeaboo Rights Party.

History

After the 2019 Essexian general election, Ben gained a seat in parliament and due to this a lordship. Lord Ben has been an untraditional Royalist, due to his previous affiliation with the Weeaboo Rights Party, as he has been a strong advocate for minority rights in particularly weeb rights. Although he is an untraditional Royalist wanting more protection for weebs he isn't a New Royalist like the First Minister or the Second Minister, and is firmly a member of the Royalist right, supporting socially conservative and economically right-wing policy.

He began working for Essexia's various scientific organisations in late 2018, including CRESER (A scientific society devoted to the furtherment of technology in Essexia, it became defunct late 2018), SPAC (A space agency which became defunct at some point in mid 2019) and EAST. He is one of the Chief Engineers of EAST, and has single-handedly manufactured the nose cones, winglets, launch lugs and engine mounts of every domestically-built rocket so far.

He was invited by Emperor Terry to form a government during the Constitutional Convention on the 11th September 2020 at Ben's house, after incumbent First Minister Sam H announced his intentions to stand down in the near future. A number of MPs and Ministers were present, as well as the Emperor, and all agreed to Ben becoming the FM despite his difference in Party (He is the leader of the Weeaboo Rights Party as opposed to Sam H, who was a member of the Progressive Workers' Party) and the lack of any election.

On the 31st December 2020, Ben released the first inaugural First Minister's New Years Broadcast, in which he acknowledged the touch challenges faced by Essexians and the micronational community during 2020 mostly as a result of COVID-19, as well as Essexia's achievements that year (Including Jack D's election as GUM Chair). This video was released alongside the Emperor's usual annual speech.
