This page describes citizens of the Technocratic Republic of Theodia who have made significant contributions to the society, especially as a member of government.
Swena (Theodian: swɛ́-nə) is the founder and once-quing of the Kingdom of Theodia. Se co-founded the Runic Union, led the kingdom's constitutional conventions, and spearheaded the country's transition into a republic. Swena is also typically Theodia's sole representative abroad and in the media.
For over a decade, se has been heavily involved in the creation of Theodian society, creating things such as Theodia's language, alphabet, and conventions all entirely from scratch, and in most cases single-handedly. Swena's work in political science has additionally created what is possibly the first full implementation of true technocracy in the World, and has since 2011 been one of the first people to apply Open Source development principles to legislation: first with the development of the GOV programming language, then with the concept of Repositocracy, and finally with the development of actual legislation on GitHub.
Swena has degrees in Linguistics and Cognitive Science, and works as a software developer.
Before the naming reform of 2013, se was known as Kyng Sweyn78; and at the time of ser first foray into micronationalism, se was known as His Grace, King Svenn Bradsson Schroeder I.
Skerdsala (Theodian: skə́r-tsa-la) joined Theodia in 2018, and became the nation's Minister of Foreign Affairs on April 26th, 2020, the first such minister since Naroba in 2014. Skerdsala has also seen Theodia ascend to the GUM, the first time Theodia has properly joined an equivalent organization since 2011. Se is also working on a new school of Philosophism, and an introduction to conlanging for micronationalists.
Skerdsala has a bachelor's in Chinese, a master's in Linguistics, and a master's in Religion (focusing on the Near-East); se is currently seeking a PhD in East-Asian Studies, focusing on China.
Skerdsala's name is a blend of English "scourge" and Theodian "ʼá-la" ("ʼá-la"), which means "god" or "God"; thus giving ser name the meaning of "Scourge of God".
Cadin (Theodian: ká-tix) joined Theodia in April 2020, and became the nation's first Minister of Architecture on April 29th, 2020.
Cadin has a bachelor's in Architecture, and works as a UX designer.
Cadin's name comes from "Gatin", a shortening of "Gatinho", a Portuguese term of endearment. In spite of this, Cadin actually comes from the former Spanish Empire, and speaks Spanish, not Portuguese.
Haviair (Theodian: há-fjer) is the current head of the Theodian military. Se joined Theodia early-on and has held this office since 2010. Se also marginally participated in the constitutional convention of 2011. Haviair studied at West Point for the US Army, and now serves in the US infantry.
Se took ser micronational name from the name "Javier", a name which se'd always liked.
Maviu (Theodian: má-fju) joined Theodia in 2010, and was Swena's first royal advisor. Maviu advised the quing on some minor diplomatic matters in 2010, and contributed slightly to the constitutional convention of 2011. Maviu also played a minor role in general Theodian development in early 2012.
Ser name is based on "Matthew".
Sakio (Theodian: sá-kjo) is the leader of the [currently nonexistent] Theodian airforce. Se joined Theodia in 2010, and marginally participated in the constitutional convention. Ser suggestions helped lead to the Theodian flag's now-iconic hex-gear/"snowflake". Ser legal name in Theodia is a Theodianized version of ser macronational surname, "Zaccheo".
Axel (Theodian: ʼáʼ-sɛl) was the first Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of Theodia. Axel joined Theodia on 2011-10-19 via voluntary cession of ser own micronation, Underwoodia. Se made significant progress in programming the Theodian economy in Python, and se set up the FA Ministry from scratch. Axel also played an influential role in the pre-Repositocracy codex system, and made minor contributions to an earlier form of the GOV programming language. Se also commissioned the first physical Theodian flag. Unfortunately, much of the work se contributed to Theodia was lost after ser death on 2012-09-19.
Axel was not alive for the naming reform of 2013, which is why ser name has not been universally Theodianized across Microwiki (The Romanization of Axel's Theodian name is "Atsel", not "Axel".). Prior to joining Theodia, se went by the name "Erasmas Underwood", after which se changed ser name to "Axel Nielson", in a nod to ser Scandinavian roots.
Naroba (Theodian: ná-ro-pa) joined Theodia in 2010. Se played a minor role in the selection of the current motto, and became the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Theodia on 2013's June 13. Se abdicated this role on 2013-07-12, citing events going on in ser life that would prevent hirm from being able to act as Theodia's Min-FR for the foreseeable future. Se acted for a short time immediately thereafter as Theodia's Minister of Intelligence until the amorphous super-fallback mode was enabled. Se acted as a general minister of Theodia until ser death on 2014-02-16.
Se chose to take the name of Naropa, a Buddhist Mahasiddha. While ser personal philosophy had many influences from Buddhism, Min Naroba was actually a convert to Shaivist Hinduism. Politically, Naroba was influenced by anarchism, but se was not blind to pragmatism. During life, ser legal name in Theodia was actually "Narba", not "Naroba". This was changed in mid-2019, when old citizen names were updated to use a newer version of Theodian.
Pairdat (Theodian: pɛ́r-daʼ) became a citizen of the Kingdom of Theodia in 2011, and was Theodia's first non-American citizen, having originated in Iceland. Pairdat was the inspiration for Theodia's adoption of amory. Se was the first Minister of Culture of the Kingdom of Theodia, and held the office for a short time in 2012's July, before becoming inactive. Se also founded Theodia's first newspaper company, although it too went inactive. Pairdat later reigned as a co-emperor of the Saxon Empire, where se played a fairly influential role in Theodian-Saxon relations. After the Saxon Empire went inactive, Pairdat returned to the Theodian government on 2013-07-12 as the Minister of Foreign Affairs, but was released from the executive a day later. Pairdat's citizenship was terminated some time thereafter.
"Pairdat" is a Theodianization of "Paradox", the latter part of the handle se used online outside of Theodia: "Pandora Paradox".
