Lord Sir Oscar Edward Elliot Gilmour KOV is the Minister of Defence and the Minister of National Development of the Empire of Adammia and is the Deputy Leader of the Liberal-Moderate Party. He is also the governor of the Colony of Xanada.

Non-micronational life

Gilmour was born in the United Kingdom and grew up in France, where he attended film school.

Micronational career

Gilmour, as a member of the Ordo Vladius, was one of the first people to become aware of Adammia after its foundation in April 2013, and one of the first people to become a citizen. He founded the Xanada V Sportica forum-based roleplaying game, from which Adammia took its name. For many years, Gilmour's involvement in Adammia was minimal, although he did briefly act as a newsreader for Adammic Online Broadcasting, announcing the results of the 2014 national election.

Gilmour's involvement in Adammic politics began in September 2018 when he wrote an open letter to Prime Minister Lord Helliker criticising the merger of the Liberal and Moderate parties, as a long-time Moderate supporter. He also launched the Daily Rag, a satirical tabloid that primarily attacked the new Storm Party. Though the Liberal-Moderates distanced themselves from the Daily Rag, Gilmour did eventually join the party and helped to produce its 2018 manifesto.

Gilmour became an active politician when, in September 2019, he was approached by Emperor Adam I about standing as a candidate for the Liberal-Moderates in the upcoming general election to the new House of Citizens. Gilmour was keen to campaign and was given a relatively high position of #3 on the Lib-Mod list. In order to make Gilmour a member of the LMP Executive Committee, he was quickly elected as the party's first Deputy Leader. Meanwhile, on 19 September, Gilmour's home was claimed as the Adammic colony of Xanada, of which he was made governor.

Gilmour became an MP at the general election, and he successfully nominated Lib-Mod leader Lord Charles Michael for the office of Prime Minister. He subsequently became Minister of National Development, as well as interim Minister of Patriotism whilst the department was being dismantled. After the Ministry of Patriotism was dissolved by the Government Ministries Act 2019 on 29 October, Gilmour became Minister of Defence.
