Jackson I (born Jack Ryan Morris, 15 March 2007) is the founder and King of the Empire of Kapreburg. He founded his first micronation some time around 2012 or 2013. He founded Kapreburg in 2018, and served as President of Kapreburg until 17 May 2019, when he was elevated to Tsar by Congress. On 17 May 2020 his title changed to King.

He has been heavily involved in other micronations. In Baustralia he is a rear admiral in His Royal Navy, and was formerly the Deputy Prime Minister. He is also a member of the nobility in Baustralia, bearing the title Viscount of Englewood. In Paloma, he serves as the Vice President, and is also a member of the Supreme Paloman, representing Tejabasco. He also serves in the Paloman People's Army Ground Force. In Ikonia he bears the title Duke of Crystal, serves in His Majesty's Navy, and was formerly the Chief of Police of Ikonia.

Personal life

Jackson I was born on 15 March 2007 in Palos Heights, Illinois. He is currently in high school and will graduate in 2025. His biggest interests are music, theater, micronationalism, and religion, but he is also somewhat interested in history, philosophy, and sports. He follows the NFL, being a fan of the Chicago Bears. He also has an interest in Freemasonry, and plans to petition to his local lodge once he is old enough. In school he is a member of the drama club.

Music

Jackson's biggest passion is music, listening to, playing, and composing. He currently plays percussion in his high school's band, and is also a side drummer in the Stockyard Kilty Band. In school he also takes part in annual spring musical, and he sings in his church choir. At home he plays guitar, fife, and alto saxophone. He mainly plays folk music, march music, and jazz, and has also expressed an interest in learning the Great Highland Bagpipes. He writes music of many different genres, and two notable songs of his are Kapreburg Wins Again and Wegs on the Wall.

Religion

Jackson was raised in a Roman Catholic household, and was baptized into the church when he was a few months old. Jackson is a professed Christian, but does not belong to any particular church or denomination. He has stated that his personal beliefs reflect that of the Lutheran tradition, particularly the Evangelical Catholic sect of Lutheranism. He formerly attended a Lutheran church which was under the ELCA, and even planned to be confirmed in the church, but left because he found the theology too progressive. Currently he attends Catholic mass with his father every Sunday, and sings in the church choir. Because of his Lutheran beliefs, he does not plan to join the Catholic church, and does not take communion during mass.

Politics

Jackson first found an interest in politics during the 2016 United States presidential election, and began somewhat seriously researching politics during 2019, identifying himself as a republican. Around early 2021 he fell out of the mainstream political community, stating it was toxic, but he still enjoys studying politics, specifically the philosophical aspect of it. He identifies as a center libertarian, emphasizing individual liberties, but is a centrist on the economic axis, stating that both socialism and capitalism are broken systems, and views the current situation in the United States, financially, as proof that capitalism will eventually crumble.

Theater

Jackson has always had an interest in drama, but never acted until his school was putting on Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. He was casted as a member of the ensemble, until the original actor for Reuben dropped his role. Jackson was given the role instead. He also designed the program for this show. The next production his school put on was And Then There Were None, and after trying out, he didn't make the cast. As the previous costume manager for the drama department had graduated, Jackson was taken on board as costume manager for the play. After the original actor for William Blore dropped his role, Jackson was given the role. He was inducted into the International Thespian Society in December 2023 with 29 points after And Then There Were None.
