David Massarde is the Deputy Chairman and Propaganda Minister of the Federated Republics of A1, General Officer Commanding A1 Defence Force (GOCA1DF) and Chief of the A1 Civil Security Service (A1CSS). He became Minister for Propaganda directly after the August 2009 elections, and became Chief of the A1 Civil Security Service in October 2009 during the YouTube Crisis.

Massarde was granted the title of Decorated Comrade by the order of the Party Chairman, Pauline Lightman in September of 2009.

Childhood

David Massarde was born in Wellington, New Zealand, spending much of his early childhood there. He later moved to Melbourne, Australia, developing an interest in media, politics and history. By joining A1, Massarde found an outlet for his creative talents and ideological motivations.

Career

Massarde became a citizen of A1 during the August elections, and was installed as Minister for Propaganda after the A1 People's Party came to power. For his speedy production of propaganda material (including posters and leaflets) and his high level of activity within the government, he was granted the title of Lord of B29.

In October, Massarde was made Chief of the A1 Civil Security Service (formerly the A1 Federal Police) by decree of Chairman Gribbon. This was because an active chief was required to lead the investigation into the YouTube Crisis. This was following in January 2010 by his appointment to commander of the A1 Defence Force, General Officer Commanding A1DF, with the rank of Colonel.

Massarde is also responsible for graphics, seals and emblems used by the government and the People's Army.

In February 2010, following the removal of Tomas Caulfield from his position as Deputy Chairman, Massarde was announced as his successor.

  • Great Patriotic War Service Medal - Service medal awarded to any members of the A1 People's Army who served in the Great Patriotic War.
  • Silver Cross, 1st Class - Bravery medals awarded for bravery in combat. Colonel Massarde was awarded this by Rob Gribbon, along with other members of the A1 People's Army in recognition of their bravery in military operations.
