This inspired him to create the Penn Federal Republic, named after the founder of Pennsylvania, William Penn. Established on 31 December 2020, Purcell established a government, wrote a constitution, and became the first President of the nation. Active in numerous micronations including the Republic of Roscamistan as a representative, the State of Vishwamitra as Consulate General to Pennsylvania, and the Commonwealth of Dracul for his diplomacy, he became of relative notability in the community for his leadership skills.
As founder and President of the Penn Federal Republic, he has made several instrumental changes in the structure of the nation, shuffling his cabinet twice, during the August Affair and the March 2022 Cabinet Reshuffle. He has taken the advice, inspiration, and support of a variety of well known micronationalists to establish the Penn Federal Republic as a relatively well known nation, mostly known in the MicroWiki sphere.
