Micronational career

Australis

As a Pentarchy Member

Daniel initially formed the Pentarchy on 8 April 2020, holding a position as a member. During the first two months of Australis, known as the Pentarchy Era, he was a prominent member of the Pentarchy, performing most of the work within the Pentarchy due to the inactivity of the other members, an action that would lead to the demise of the Pentarchy on 28 May 2020. Daniel is known for suggesting and operating the first elections for a legislative branch of Australis at the time, and also forming the Australissian Libertarian-Socialist Party to run in said election.

As Grand Duke

Cupertino Alliance

Since July 2020, Daniel has been one of three delegates for Australis in the Cupertino Alliance, the other two being Patrick Kenny and Xavier Joubert. In late September, Daniel was appointed as the Deputy Minister for Asian Affairs by Jayden Lycon the Chair of the Alliance, and made the Minister for Asian Affairs a month later, following the previous Minister stepping down. Daniel usually acts as the speaker of Asian/Oceanian Auxiliary sessions in the Cupertino Alliance.

2021 Bid for Chair

Logo of the Roscoe 2021 Campaign for Cupertino Alliance Chair

On 19 October 2020, Roscoe announced his intentions to run for Chair of the Alliance, the first delegate of the Alliance at the time to do so. Shortly after, he launched a campaign website, titled Vote Roscoe 2021, and released a campaign logo, stating 'Roscoe 2021'. He has promised that his major policies as Cupertino Chair would be running more charity/fundraising events, modernising the Cupertino Alliance MicroWiki page, and increasing the size and activity within the Asian/Oceanian Sector of the Alliance. [1]

In an early opinion poll undertaken from 4-8 November 2020 by the Micronational Gazette, in a partnership with the Cupertino Alliance electoral commission, CESE, found Roscoe to be leading the pre-polls, with a 7.1 point lead, totalling 35.7% of the popular vote, followed by competitor Liam Munroe with 28.6% of the vote. [2]

Other Endeavours

In addition to Australis, Daniel had attempted to form two other nations as smaller side-projects, Nullarbor and New Yera however these projects were abandoned. The latter was incorporated into Australis as a district of Amicitia. Daniel is also a member of the People's Supreme Assembly of Ponderosa Hills, representing the left-wing party Freedom Coalition in Seat 7 of the Assembly. Daniel briefly attempted to join the operations of Promatia in April/May 2020.

Journalism

Since October 2020, Daniel has been the Editor-in-Chief and owner of micronational news source MicroWeekly, editing and publishing articles on the site. He is also known for commonly writing and editing articles for the national news source of Australis, the Australis Times.

Political Beliefs

Libertarian Left Political Compass Result
Alternative political compass result, which placed Daniel in the Authoritarian-Left category.

Daniel has described himself as being left-wing, which can be confirmed by his results across multiple political compass scorings. Daniel supports LGBTQ+, racial equality and animal rights. He is a strong supporter of Meritocracy, a system aimed at electing government based on merit rather than the popular vote. He is a supporter of socialism but believes that it must still incorporate some of the ideals from capitalism in order for it to succeed.
