Munroe I of Atiera SROM POA ON GS SAI (born Liam Alexander, 5 April 2005) is Hamilton born Canadian micronationalist leader, journalist and writer, most notably for being the first King of Atiera since the Kingdom's foundation in May of 2020. Alongside Atiera, Alexander also participates in other notable micronations such as Oskonia, as Prime Minister and in Pacem, he formerly served as the nation's inaugural First Minister between 27 July 2020 until his resignation on 1 February 2021.[1][2]

Alexander is also CEO of the Wortley Group, a shareholding company that owns several subsidiaries such as the Atieran Advance, based in Alexandra Hill, Atiera.

Micronational career

Early career

In early 2019, Alexander and his friends founded a simulationist nation known as the Democratic Republic of Cobra where he served as the Secretary of state until its dissolution later in the year. He and his friends proclaimed Cameron Cezar, former micronationalist and co-founder of Cobra, as the nation's King.

After the dissolution of the Democratic Republic of Cobra, Alexander went on to found two other unsuccessful nation-projects before founding Atiera. These nations were known respectively as the Democratic Republic of Patheum and the Kingdom of Limconia, both of which had little to no government structure and any real-life elements, making them both simulationist states.

Later in 2019, Alexander first discovered "true" micronationalism, a form of micronationalism which he describes as "serious and legitimate", when he heard about Arkovia. During the time he held citizenship in Arkovia, he was a member of the Genisis council and former Prime Executive Minister of the Foreign Intelligence service Enhanced Government Institution. Alexander has also been involved in a scandal of Arkovian documents being leaked from the EGI he was in charge of. He was also a minister within Promatia, after the name change of Arkovia, until informally renouncing his citizenship later in the year.

Alexander was also active within the Empire of Pacem, which he discovered while browsing Reddit on holiday with his family. He later was recruited as a journalist for the Quo Times. Later, he left and rejoined sometime in early 2020 where he served as a senator and the nation's First Minister. To this day, Alexander proudly states that the Empire of Pacem played a major role in the development of his micronational career.[2]

May 2020 - June 2021

On 30 May 2020, Munroe founded his latest and most successful nation, the Kingdom of Atiera, where he is the current monarch, reigning as Emperor of Atiera since 30 May 2020 and King of Atiera since 10 August 2020. He serves as the Head of State and subsequently, Commander-in-Chief of the Atieran Defense Force. He is also the King of Galte, the only colony of Atiera.[3]

On 1 February 2021, he resigned from all his positions in Monmark, Pacem, Vishwamitra, and Maple, also relinquishing any titles and citizenships.[4][2][5] He did this to relieve stress from his micronational life and downsize his presence within the community.

Hiatus and personal crisis

Alexander suddenly left every micronational Discord server he had been in and removed all micronational friends (except Michael, Prince of Galte) from his Discord friends list on 21 June 2021. This came as a sudden shock to many, including Atieran government officials. Daniel Hamilton later released a statement of Alexander's behalf. In the statement, he said that "a lot has happened to me mentally and emotionally," and "I am not proud and instead rather ashamed that time and time again I prove myself to be unfit for service as one of the leaders of this nation." Because of this and more, he wrote in his statement that he would be taking an extended break from the micronational community as a whole. He also said that if he were to abdicate the throne of Atiera, Michael, Prince of Galte would ascend to the Atieran throne.[6]

Following up on that statement, he was immediately relieved from his duties as Margrave of Australis by Daniel Hamilton. He was also relieved of any other positions he held up to that point, excluding King of Atiera and Galte.

On 25 June 2021, he returned to the Atiera Discord server and other servers, slowly marking his return to the community. On 6 July, he announced that he would be ending his short hiatus on 16 July 2021, whilst still doing minor tasks in the various micronations he participates in.
