Corporal Francis S (CPE) of the No. 4 (Foreign Legion) Section, informally referred to as Schrodinger or Schrodes, is an officer in the Imperial Army of Essexia, and prominent figure in the Essexian landscape. He regularly contributes to discussions regarding the Essexian armed forces, and is well known as somewhat of an anomaly.
He is reknown for his contributions towards the independence and functioning of Čechsexia.
Also known by some as Schrodinger, Francis first made a micronational appearance at the 2020 Wincott cup, representing the micronation of Poplar Nerva. Shortly after his debut, he joined the Commonwealth of Essexia and was swiftly recruited into the IAE on 27 April by Matthew, after it was revealed that he is a competition shooter. In short order, he was also appointed as the Essexian Ambassador to Czechia on 2 May 2020 by Matthew, although he still insists on calling the nation the Czech Republic. After a month of service in the IAE, he was promoted to the rank of Commissar on June 1 by Jacob, in the midst of the Second Essexian Civil War. Since then he has been active in helping to reform the IAE. Even though he is more than a thousand miles away from Essexia, Francis declared his intention to visit, but his plans have had to be postponed because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. He also participated in the Great Essexian Memeoff, where he scored 2166 completely legitimate votes, placing him in the 5th place, just in front of George S. Since acquiring citizenship in Essexia, he mentioned his mysterious friend “Ivan“ (sometimes also “Dima“) several times. Nobody knows who he/she is, or if they are even real.
He was given the Most Noble Order of Patriotism (CPE) on the 9th April 2021 by Emperor James I for his "patriotic services to the Commonwealth of Essexia over the past few months." He accepted the award. This was Emperor James' first distribution of an award, and Francis' first Honour.
