Micronational career

Gilbert became an honourary citizen of Adammia in January 2020 after meeting Emperor Adam I and other Adammic politicians through the University of Birmingham Liberal Democrats society several months prior. He was knighted in the February 2020 Birthday Honours List. In September 2020, his residence was claimed as South Astonia, making him a full citizen, and he was made a count the following month. He joined the Liberal-Moderate Party and stood at the #4 position on their candidate list for the 2020 general election. He was elected as an MP and spent most of his first term on the opposition backbench. After Lord James Green became party leader in August 2021, he appointed Gilbert as Shadow Minister of National Development in the first ever Shadow Cabinet.

As the 2021 general election was uncontested, Gilbert automatically held his seat in the House. As part of the cross-party national unity government set up by Lord Green, Gilbert became Minister of National Development
