Micronational Career

Early Micronational Career

Jamez began his micronational career as the Augustus Secretary of Ryanlandia, in the year of 2016. He simultaneously was serving as the Governor of Kassinovia in Ryanlandia, as well. He then went on to serve as the General Secretary and Acting First Secretary for just one week.

Following the shutdown of Ryanlandia in 2017, he went on to found This Table (aka TT), later changed to the Formositan Empire (aka Formositas) a micronation simply at a table at his school. Due to it being the school community’s property, he justified it as his own. He served as Emperor for two years before shutting it down.

Return to Micronationalism

He then took a several month long hiatus until 10 June 2020, when he began work on MicroWiki’s micronational community. He founded Desert District in North America, bordering California in the United States. He then served as First Secretary.

On 13 June, 2020, Jamez decided to apply for party creation in the Fifth Aenderian Republic, and subsequently became the Chair of the Aenderese Democratic Socialist Party. He resigned on 20 June, 2020, after the announcement of the dissolving of the Fifth Aenderian Republic and an accusation of voter fraud.

He subsequently made the Democratic Socialist Coalition of Desert District.

On 28 June, 2020, Jamez announced his resignation from his position as First Secretary and the official Desert District server owner, handing the latter to Lee Bastino who subsequently was elected First Secretary. He has remained active in the nation as a Legislative Body member.

On July 3rd, Jamez became an attorney at law with Smith & Associates Law.

Throughout early July 2020, Jamez fought alongside TOES in the TOES-Almendria War and was an important figure after he resigned his Almendrian position of Minister of Internal Affairs. As a result, the nation he formerly lead was raided by Almendrian Cyberforces.

Personal Life

Jamez was born in 2006, and is 14 years old. He was born in the United States, and lives there, very near Desert District.

He has identified as a socialist since he was 10 years old, when he had started to become more serious about US politics and micronationalism.

He credits US Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Sen. Edward Markey, and Sen. Bernard Sanders and UK MP Jeremy Corbin for fueling his interest in politics. He supports the Green Party and Democratic Party when it comes to US politics, but still identifies as an independent. He supports Medicare for All, free higher education, and the Green New Deal. His favorite news source is the New York Times.

His favorite hobbies are micronationalism, water tasting, and craft coffee making, specifically with a Chemex or an AeroPress.
