==Political views and career==
Leon began his micronational career in July 2012, and became involved in the MicroWiki community soon thereafter. He is formed and led a self-declared number of unstable micronations, such as the Republic of New Nevada. This era of perpetual instability ended however when New Nevade joined the Confederate States of Prosperity and came under the tutelage of [[w:Trotkyism|TrotskyistRichard Cunningham]] and the other members of the confederation's left-wing. The time as part of the CSP allowed Leon to gain valuable experience in micronationalism within the MicroWiki community. However, after discussions with [[w:EnvironmentalismJ. Grant Winchester|environmentalistJules Grant]], he historically led green movements in about the possibility of joining [[Confederate States of ProsperityAmager]] prior to its dissolution. In Amager, he New Nevada left the CSP amicably and was a member of admitted to the Labour Partyconfederation, of which he was elected First Secretary on the 29th of March by the Politburo. He served two terms in the Federal Assembly before being elected as President.becoming its second member state
He was also a nationally renowned diplomat in Leon would turn out to be the first of many younger micronationalists to join Amager, leading as it rapidly transformed from respected but not particularly influential state to a large confederation and one the Foreign Ministry and representing Amager in multiple intermicronational organisations including most respected younger nations within the MicroWiki community. He joined [[European Micronational Culture OrganisationJoseph Kennedy]] and the [[Grand Unified MicronationalCharles Crannys]]in founding the Amagerian Labour Party, in which he was briefly Secretary founded on democratic socialist and patriotic principles. The party rapidly became one of the Advancement Council before most influential political factions within Amager, with a clearly defined manifesto advocating a strong welfare state and independence from the [[2012-13 GUM leadership scandalSt.Charlian Commonwealth]] where he resigned in protest , of which Amager was a member and the most of the GUM becoming an "epicentre for unnecessary and time wasting conflictsother Amagerian parties supported."
Leon is an [[w:Atheism|atheist]] and supporter He was eventually elected to become the First Secretary of [[w:State secularism|state secularism]]the Labour Party after being confirmed by the Party's politburo on the 29th March 2013, and has introduced past legislation making state and regional religion illegal. He was also led the face of Amagerparty's promovement from a center-same sex marriage movement left to a more hard-line left-wing position, something which drew criticism from moderate elements within the party and was Democratic Union of Amager, which had always been the most powerful Amagerian political party. Nonetheless, after the rapid admittance of a number of new states disrupted the balance of power within the recognised sponsor Amagerian parliament, Leon agreed to a power sharing agreement between all of the [[c:Amagerian Legislation/I/passed#Marriage Act parties, and he was thus confirmed in the position of 2012|Marriage Act Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of 2012]]Foreign Affairs, positions which passed unanimously after his extensive lobbying. Other notable legislation has had been proposed by him, including in doubt since the [[c:Amagerian Legislation/I/passed#Symbols Inciting Hatred Act foundation of 2012|Symbols Inciting Hatred Act the Labour Party and its opposition to many of 2012]] and multiple resolutionsthe Democratic Unionist policies. Such legislation increased his popularity in both Despite disagreements, Leon formed a strong friendship with Prime Minister [[LiberecoJ. Grant Winchester|Jules Grant]] and [[Saint Luke the power sharing agreement evolved into a genuine coalition government based mainly on Amagerian patriotism and a knowledge that neither party could control the government alone, and Amager|Amager]] among that a breakdown of the coalition government could allow other parties to fill the LGBT minoritypower vacuum.
Leon has won consecutive landslide elections He was also a renowned diplomat in Amager, leading the Foreign Ministry and representing Amager in Libereco multiple intermicronational organisations including the [[European Micronational Culture Organisation]] and the [[Grand Unified Micronational]], in which he was briefly Secretary of the second highest Advancement Council before the [[2012-13 GUM leadership scandal]] where he resigned in protest of the popular vote GUM becoming an "epicentre for unnecessary and time wasting conflicts." He would however involve himself in GUM affairs once more however, and Leon's diplomatic career reached its height when he became Vice Chair of the GUM after [[Richard Cunningham]] won the [[Chair of the 2013 Amagerian Grand Unified Micronational|Chairmanship]] after one of the most contentious electionsin GUM history. Unfortunately, demonstrating events within Amager would see it dissolve before Leon could complete his overall popularity with term, but he was able to serve as a delegate of Burnham temporarily before Libereco's admittance following its reconstitution as an independent state, becoming the Amagerian populationonly Chair or Vice-Chair to serve a term as a delegate for three separate micronations.
He is In the months before Amager's dissolution Leon proposed a supporter number of different progressive pieces of legislation, and unsuccessfully tried to fully secularise Amager after the legalisation move was opposed by all of all victimless crimesthe other parties and elements within the Labour Party. However, but "won't submit any he was able to pass legislation on allowing same-sex marriage, which was largely a political statement given the matter until all macronations macronational controversy over the issue at the time. However, these moves, in particular his push for full federal and regional secularisation, alienated many within Amager and was a key factor which Amagerian claims are located legalise them" citing led to the confederation's dissolution. Leon himself would later admit that "it is very important he regretted pushing so hard, and that in hindsight he should have compromised with the conservative elements within Amager does not get itself in legal trouble, that needs to be a priority."
Upon the rise to prominence of the Hobartstown and Victorian independence movement [[J. Grant Winchester|Jules Grant]]'s support of the movement and his subsequent resignation as Prime Minister, Leon championed became the fourth head of government in Amager's history and the first not to have signed the Declaration of Independence. He led the third amendmentnation through a great relaxation of a number of laws and introduced a new constitution, creating the Fourth Confederation and reforming the entire political system, abolishing the post of Prime Minister in favour of First Minister and introduced creating for the original proposalfirst time a Presidential position, though it which was later revised after multiple reasoned amendments directly tied to that of the legislation[[St. The amendment gave him further support among Amagerian progressivesCharlie|Federal Republic of St.Charlie]]. However, these reforms ultimately were not able to keep the Confederation together and he resigned his position as First Minister in favour of [[Joseph Kennedy]], who became Amager's last head of government.
Subsequently, Libereco became an independent republic. The independence era was relatively short, though it did become a member of the Grand Unified Micronational and and a founder of the Amagerian Union, which was an organisation composed entirely out of former members of the Confederation. Upon [[Ashukovo]]'s foundation by the rise to prominence former Amagerian states of the Hobartstown [[Akharnes]], [[Montania]], [[Dradelia]], and Victorian independence movementDorién, Leon became the fourth head one of government in Amager's history and its strongest critics. He called it "eerily similar to the first not to have signed the Declaration of Independence late Confederation" and referred to its foundation so soon after First Minister AlbertschineAmager's resignationdissolution as "ludicrous." However, he led did support its admittance to the nation through a great relaxation GUM which was opposed by many on the grounds that it had applied for full membership so soon after its foundation. He also later recanted his criticisms of laws Ashukovo after it achieved long-standing political and introduced a new constitution, creating diplomatic success. Leon left the Fourth Confederation, before Doshevika's secession micronational community soon thereafter and AmagerLibereco's collapse leading Union Assembly agreed unanimously to dissolve the re-foundation of [[Libereco]] as an independent staterepublic, having achieved little since it left Amager.
