Member of Parliament
Before becoming president, Takata was a Member of SRNA Parliament, representing Alakatoon and Bratton. He represented the district for less than a year.
Under the leadership of Takata, SRNA has seen unprecedented growth. The nation's territory has expanded by almost 500 percent, The number of citizens has tripled, more than 6 embassies and consulates have been opened, and alliances continue to be created. The SRNA has become very ambitious and is well on its way to becoming a micronational superpower. Takata has said "Our nation has grown, we aren't small anymore; today, our crimson flag flies on every continent, including Antarctica. This is proof to the dedication of our people and patriotism to our nation."
One of the major goals of the Takata administration is growth in diplomacy. When he began his term as president, the nation had no allies, it had no embassies, and was virtually unheard of. Today, SRNA has at least eight allies, operates ten embassies and consulates and plans on opening at least nine more. The new citizenship laws have grown the nation dramatically. Today, a New Soviet Flag flies on every continent, including Antarctica.
Takata has greatly expanded the nation. Before his presidency, the nation only consisted of Alakatoon and Bratton. Today, it also has a large territory in Antarctica (Soviet Antarctica), Northern Africa (Soviet Africa), and Hans Island. Though, unrecognized, SRNA would be or is the 17th largest country on Earth. His claims on the African territory is disputed by NottaLotta Acres.
