'''Lord Charles Aelred Raphael Ross, Duke of Occidentia, Margrave of Phokland''' is a [[Dracul|Draculian]] [[Micronationalist]], [[w:Politician|Politician]] and, [[MicroRamble|Media Host]] and [[Austenasia|Austenasian]] nobleman who has held numerous positions within the micronational community, with prominent ones including, [[State President of Phokland|State President]] of the [[Phoklandian Free State]], [[Commissioner of Bregusland|Governing Commissioner]] of [[Bregusland|Bregusland Colony]], [[Official Historian (Austenasia)|Official Historian]] of the [[Empire of Austenasia]], [[Foreign Office (Austenasia)|Austenasian Consul in Arizona]] and , [[w:Press Secretary|Draculian Presidential Press Secretary]], [[Attorney General (Austenasia)|Attorney General of Austenasia]], [[w:Lieutenant Governor|Lieutenant Governor]] of [[North Dracul]]and Dracul Secretary of the Interior.
Through his micronational carrier career (spanning as far back as 2007), Charles has gained a small amount attention through his leading role in establishing several micronational-themed media platforms, including; [[Television Territory]], [[Phokland News Network]], [[Television Graustark]] and his most notable platform, [[MicroRamble]], a micronational commentary and current events program he operates with fellow micronationalist, [[Thomas Bainbridge]].
==Early life==
==Micronational career==
Ross began his micronational carrier career in 2007 when he created/ran the [[Kingdom of Rosston]] in the playground of his primary school until it's dissolution in [[2013]].
=== Phokland ===
=== Austenasia ===
While a part of Phokland, Charles began associating with other micronations, notably the [[Empire of Austenasia]] where he became the nation's Official Historian, Council to Arizona and, Commissioner of the [[Austenasian Crown Dependency]] of [[Bregusland]]. Over time, however, he began drifting away from Austenasia and began to focus more on his primary project, that being Phokland and later, Dracul.
=== Dracul ===
He continued with Phokland until early 2020 when a split in the government caused the nation to dissolve, leaving Charles stateless. Shortly after Phokland's dissolution, he was approached by Vice President of the [[Commonwealth of Dracul]], [[Stephen Luke]] with the proposition of him becoming the new Lieutenant Governor of [[North Dracul]](a position he held until December of 2020 when he resigned after a spat with North Dracul's Governor [[Eric Harvey Williams, Jr|Eric Williams]]). Ross accepted the offer and shortly thereafter assumed office on 22 April 2020. In his time as Lieutenant Governor, Ross has helped to streamline the state's executive office and created North Dracul's first official website.
After taking office, Charles began dedicating the majority of his time to Dracul, subsequently taking the additional responsibilities of becoming the Commonwealth's ''de facto'' chief marketing adviser, the Dracul Army's head recruiter(and later Commanding Officer), Deputy Secretary of State, Draculian Ambassador to the [[Grand Republic of Cycoldia]] andthe [[w:United States of America|United States]], Press as well as Secretary for of the President's OfficeInterior. Through his numerous positions and heavy involvement in government affairs, Lord Charles has cemented himself as a prominent Draculian politician and adviser, with the latter being most visible through his relationship with the Vice President's Office. After leaving the office of North Dracul's Lieutenant Governor, Charles dedicated the bulk of his attention to his role as Secretary of the Interior and since taking office, has worked to streamline the department and create cadet agencies, such as the [[Land Administration Agency (Dracul)|Land Administration Agency]].

==Personal life==
Outside of micronationalism, Charles Ross spends a majority of his free time either researching history or writing. Additionally, he is a huge fan of film and enjoys watching movies either at home or at the cinema. Charles also spends a large chunk of his time working on a podcast he runs podcasts and engaging in political activities with fellow micronationalist the [[Thomas Bainbridge]], known as [[MicroRamblew:Arizona Libertarian Party|Arizona Libertarian Party]].
== Political views ==
=== Micronationally ===
In a micronational context, Ross is staunchly [[w:monarchism|monarchist]] with a firm belief that a strong head of state helps a micronation develop further than it would with a lose loose electable government. Additionally, he believes that the pomp and pageantry that comes with a monarchy also helps to create a culture within the nation and helps to give it legitimacy. ==Quotes=={{Quote|Oh f*** me.|Charles Ross, [[2019]]}}{{Quote|F*** it let's take over Greenland.|Charles Ross, [[2020]]}}{{Quote|There is not a single quote attributed to me that does not contain the f word.|Charles Ross, [[2020]]}}
