Tucker I AECV GCoLa GCSa GCV KCLSCQ OH GCL OLS KGHB (born Tucker David Gladden; 5 December 2008) is the Emperor of the Oskonians, reigning since 18 April 2021, and founder of the Empire of Oskonia. He was also in the Commoner Council of Ikonia, the Privy Council in Novus Hierosolymis, and the House of Commons of Australis. He is currently suspended from the Cupertino Alliance for lying about his age.

Reigning as a semi-constitutional monarch, Tucker created the Empire of Oskonia on 18 April 2021. His official coronation is set to take place in the summer of 2021. He quickly expanded his political knowledge to other micronations, the first being the Republic of Floriland, becoming a Member of Parliament. He since has become a figure in many more micronations, such as Novus Hierosolymis, Australis, Ikonia, Atiera, and Vishwamitra. His first royal decree in Oskonia was creating the six provinces in Oskonia. His first appointment to the Parliament was Jayden Dagsa, on 8 May 2021, who would later become Prime Minister. On 1 June 2021, he founded Yet Another Micronational Social Club, or YAMSC.

Tucker is a well-known figure in the micronational community.[citation needed] He has received many foreign honors, mainly from Novus Hierosolymis, Vishwamitra, and Queensland. He is a Cupertino Alliance delegate for Oskonia. He is in many parliaments and privy councils across micronationalism. He is a member of the Commoner Council in the Kingdom of Ikonia, a member of the House of Commons in the Unified Royal States of Australis, a member of the Privy Council in Novus Hierosolymis, and a Member of Parliament in the Kingdom of Atiera, where he also serves as Prime Minister. He holds noble titles in Atiera, Novus Hierosolymis, Vishwamitra, Queensland, and Monmark.

Early life

Tucker David Gladden was born at 6:42 PM on 5 December 2008 at Merit Health Women's Hospital in Flowood, Mississippi, USA. His father is from Cleveland, Mississippi, and his mother is from Monroe, Louisiana. He regularly goes to both of these cities as he has family there.

Micronational career

Within micronations

Oskonia

Gladden is the founder and the current monarch of the Kingdom of Oskonia.

Founding and restructuring

Gladden founded the Kingdom of Oskonia on 16 March 2021 as the Federal Republic of Starasia. It was established after talking with an acquaintance of his who ran his own micronation. He found out more about micronationalism through the Republic of Molossia and a Not Exactly Normal video that featured Christina I of Cycoldia. He designed the flag of Starasia the same day he founded it, and he designed the coat of arms about 1 day later. He appointed himself as the President and he appointed his friend to be the Prime Minister. He soon realized that having a republic was a bad idea and created the Federal Kingdom of Starasia on 2 April 2021, appointing himself as King. He continued on as King for 9 days before dissolving Starasia and going into a restructuring phase. The restructuring phase took 7 days before Starasia re-emerged as the Kingdom of Oskonia. The flag of Oskonia was released the same day. Initially, people compared the flag to that of the Pinangese Republic, but the cross design quickly started to represent Oskonia more than Pinang. The first coat of arms of Oskonia was designed by Cameron Koehler. Upon its release, many micronationalists started comparing it to the coat of arms of the United Kingdom. It was soon changed, however, to a new coat of arms designed by Jayden Dagsa.

29th May, Norwegianist invasion, Cupertino Alliance

On 29 May 2021, Gladden sent out an announcement in Oskonia's Discord server that stated: "We're currently looking for MPs! At the moment, we only have the Prime Minister, but we hope to expand. Please, shoot me a DM if you would like to join the Parliament." The Prime Minister at the time was Jayden Dagsa, who was appointed by Gladden. About 7 people responded to that announcement, and the Riksforsamling was born. One of the respondents was Christopher Miller, who lead the Norwegianist movement in Oskonia. It started with Miller voicing his concern with the amount of British symbolism in Oskonia, such as the use of St. Edward's Crown, the British Order of the Garter heraldic collar being used in the coat of arms of Oskonia, and the supporters of the Oskonian coat of arms just being the British supporters. Because of this, Miller helped rebrand Oskonia as a Norwegian-style monarchy, taking on a new coat of arms, creating a new, unique heraldic crown, and creating a new royal monogram for the King. Overall, Miller's movement for more Norwegian symbolism succeeded, and Oskonia became Norwegian-influenced. Oskonia applied for membership in the Cupertino Alliance in early May 2021, and was accepted as an observer on 7 May 2021. Oskonia became a full member of the Cupertino Alliance on 30 May 2021, and Gladden became a delegate from Oskonia.

Imperialism

On the six month anniversary of Oskonia's independence, Tucker released a royal decree changing the name of Oskonia to the Empire of Oskonia, with him as emperor. Oskonia was now an imperial state.

Atiera

Gladden joined the Kingdom of Atiera on 16 May 2021 and within 2 months of being a citizen, he rose to be the second-most powerful person there, after His Majesty Munroe I.

No confidence bill, Parliament, Prime Minister

On the day that Gladden joined Atiera as a citizen, 16 May 2021, he tried to register a political party that was a type of conservative party. After Liam Alexander, also known as Munroe I, saw this, he direct messaged Gladden saying that the party he was trying to register "already kinda exists". The party he was referencing was the Atieran National Front. He spoke about the party in a mostly positive light, calling it the "biggest and oldest party in Atiera". He also voiced his concern about the chairman of the party at the time, Isaiah David. He suggested that Gladden run in both the party's chairmanship elections in June and the upcoming general election. So, he did. He joined the Atieran National Front and registered for the chairmanship election. He eventually chose Christopher Miller as his running mate, as he was the only candidate that he saw was fit for deputy chair. Things were looking good for the two coming up to the election, as they had voiced support from the King and the Prince of Galte. Election day was a very tension-filled day for Gladden, Miller, Alexander, and Shepard, as this chairmanship election, according to Alexander, "determined the future of Atiera." The results came in and David ended up winning by a fair margin. Gladden knew that Atiera could not survive under another David administration. So, Gladden made a group chat between him, Alexander, Shepard, and Miller. They ended up writing a very long and detailed motion of no confidence against David. It was successful, causing David to resign within minutes. David had to choose a successor to be the new chair of the Atieran National Front. He ended up choosing Miller, who, 47 minutes later, handed the chairmanship to Gladden, making him Prime Minister.[a] The group chat Gladden created ended up becoming 5 cute gay boys, which is still highly active today. After the succession skirmish, the general election happened, and Gladden won the Brayton Plains South seat. The Atieran National Front had a majority within the Parliament, meaning he would remain Prime Minister.

Governor-General

Shortly after the general election, Daniel Hamilton resigned from all of his Atieran positions, including his seat in Parliament and his position as Governor-General. As such, Alexander had to find a new Governor-General. He looked for about 2 days until reaching a decision. He ended up choosing Gladden because he was the one that Alexander trusted the most. While talking to Gladden in direct messages, Alexander accidentally told Gladden that he was chosen for the job early. He was trying to post a link to something he had found and ended up sending the "letter of rejection" for the Governor-General position. After accidentally sending the message, he apologized and told Gladden that he had been selected for the position. Gladden was very excited about his new position in Atiera, and he couldn't wait to start his duties as Governor-General. His first duty as Governor-General was opening the 2nd Parliament of Atiera.

Resignation of government

On 24 August 2021, every member of Gladden's government resigned and relinquished their citizenships as the King of Atiera had been acting up in the Cupertino Alliance and Oskonia Discord servers. This lead to Atiera's eventual dissolution.

Novus Hierosolymis

Initial diplomacy and Privy Council

Gladden's first interaction with the Most Holy Kingdom of Novus Hierosolymis was on 26 July 2021, when Jayden I, the King of the country, requested citizenship within Oskonia. Gladden accepted the citizenship request after seeing his heraldic work. He then joined the Novus Hierosolymis Discord server on 30 April 2021. He became a citizen on the same day. Some time later, he was made the Viscount of Henricus-Secondus, a now extinct province. He was also elected to the Novohierosolymian Parliament for Henricus-Secondus's at-large seat around the same time. He was also appointed as His Majesty's Minister of Foreign Affairs and His Majesty's Ambassador to the United States. The parliament was soon abolished, however, and he was appointed to the Privy Council some time after.

Lord-President of the Privy Council

Gladden and Dagsa's[b] friendship was improving at a great rate, and the two began to trust each other more than anyone else in the community. It eventually got to the point where Dagsa was serving as a member of Oskonia's legislation, the Riksforsamling, and Gladden was serving as a well-respected Privy Councillor. One day, Dagsa came to Gladden with an offer. He said that he'd be willing to make Gladden the president of the Council, named the Lord-President of the Privy Council. Gladden gladly accepted this offer and was excited about it. The Lord-President was set to be the 2nd highest position one can get in Novus Hierosolymis, the first highest being the monarch. And so it was. Gladden began his duties in the office of the Lord-President soon after, with the publishing of the royal decree that created the office.

Vishwamitra

Consul-General to Mississippi

Gladden joined the server of the State of Vishwamitra on 24 April 2021 and applied for citizenship the same day. Dhrubajyoti Roy direct messaged Gladden shortly after, inquiring about a diplomatic service offer. Gladden told Roy he was from the state of Mississippi and he was thrilled. He immediately offered Gladden the position of Consul-General to Mississippi, and Gladden accepted.

Military

Gladden was in the Royal Vishwamitran Air Force in the rank of Squadron Leader (OF-4) in mid-2021. After that, he was made the Commissioner of the Police Force, holding the rank of Police General (OF-9).

Privy Councillor

Gladden was appointed as a Privy Councillor in Vishwamitra in June 2021.

Complaint about age and admittance

On 24 August 2021, there was an anonymous report sent into the Cupertino Alliance's Superior Court. The complaint was that he was twelve years old instead of thirteen years old, like Gladden had been saying he was. On 26 August, he was brought into a group chat with all of the Associate Judges and the Supreme Justice. The complaint was filled with evidence from Gladden's own mother's Instagram account saying that he is twelve years old instead of thirteen. This meant that if the complaint filed were true, he would be breaking Discord's Terms of Service and would have to be suspended. Gladden was naturally furious that they had found out, as he "loved doing this [micronationalism]". The Supreme Justice messaged Gladden afterwards and told him that he was a joy to have in the Alliance during his 4 month tenure.

After he admitted to being twelve, he resigned from every micronational office he held except for his position as King of Oskonia.

Personal life

Gladden owns two dogs. Their names are Hiro and Chicken Nugget. He also used to have a cat named Oreo, but Gladden's family got rid of the cat.

Gladden is a Southern Baptist.

Gladden has a dispute with his parents on which news programs he trusts. His parents are more attracted to outlets like Fox News and One America News, both of them being radical right-wing news channels. Gladden does not trust the press like OAN, Fox, CNN, MSNBC, etc, because he says that "the mainstream media has, multiple times, shown to be biased in reporting and overall a bad place to get updated on the world." Gladden says he trusts only micronational news sources, as they are run by his friends who have similar beliefs to him.

Gladden is a straight cisgender male. He does not have a girlfriend and has stated that he is "desperate" to eventually find one.

Gladden identifies as a conservative, but he is a supporter of gay rights and gay marriage.
