I, Quintin Felwitch Zealot, proud citizen of the Aerican Empire, citizen of Retsaot Island, nominate myself as a candidate of my colony for a seat in the Aerican Senate. rolleyes.gif

Here is my résumé so you can see why you should vote for me:

Since 2003, I have been a fervent micronationalist, and promoter of this movement (mainly in Mexico). I had been part of some groups that defend this ideology such as “El Club Feliz” (The Happy Club) biggrin.gif [2003-2004] which was kind of a confederation, and “Academia San Archundia” (Saint Archundia Academy) ninja.gif [2004-2005] which had kind a dictatorial regime. Also I was one of the leaders in the Triumvirate of the “Congreso de Cartas” (Card’s Congress) sleep.gif [2005-2006], a fully established micronation in which I developed my skills in the spheres of administration, legislation and civil service cool.gif.
In June 2008, I became a citizen of the Aerican Empire. Some weeks later I was designated as Ambassador of the Empire to Mexico. Since then, I have been practicing my tasks in this position with extremely attachment to the Imperial Law wacko.gif. Throughout my stay in the Empire I have been participating in events such as 2009 IDBAD Contest and working in the project of translating the AEmpirial website into Spanish (in a very slow speed, I have to confess) blink.gif.
I hope you allow me to pursue my dream of being part of the history of the Empire and to scatter my humble knowledge in order to make Aerica the best country in the Universe. rolleyes.gif.

What follows are my promises for the Empire if I am elected senator:
  • Avoid the nonparticipation in the Empire and increase the influence of my colony in the Empire affairs.
  • Give more autonomy and individuality to the colonies to promote decentralized governments (but not enough to become independent).
  • Create more natural embassies to have a less virtual micronation and more presence in the macronational world.
  • Design a line of Succession to appoint a temporary head of state in the event that the Emperor dies, is impeached or resigns, as the Senate elects a new emperor or empress.
  • Create a new ministry: the Department of Heraldry, Vexillology and Useful Burocracy, in order to compile and administrate the use of flags, coat of arms and other symbols of Imperial use.
  • Create a research and teaching institute, such as a University of the Aerican Empire. I have been thinking of names like: “Aerican Empire Institute Of Undergraduates” (A.E.I.O.U) or “Ampersand Imperial College”.
  • Delimitate and name the ranks in the Aerican Military Hierarchy of all Imperial forces (including the Penguin Death Squads, if they want to).
  • Redact a Constitution for Retsaot Island.
  • Found a demonym or gentilic to the people of the Island, no matter the cost. (If other colonies would like to join, it would be great).
  • And last but not least… create the Aerican National Anthem. For years, Aerica didn’t had a catchy song… this is the time for it. Behold! ohmy.gif
So, here are my proposals. Consider them, discuss them and choose them. VOTE FOR ME!


Quintin Felwitch Zealot,
Ambassador of the Aerican Empire to Mexico,
Senator Candidate for Retsaot Island,
Citizen of Retsaot Island,
Proud Citizen of the Aerican Empire.
Long live the Emperor!

P.S.: I would also like to add to my proposals an Electoral Act, in order to avoid the problems that this period has brought.

Martian citizens, I wish to make this short for all of our sakes. There is one excellent, non-silly reason to vote for me. I have been carried out my duties faithfully and well, having not abstained from any votes. I can sincerely promise to continue this trend. I will also endeavor to put a squid in every penguin's pot, and to make Phobos and Deimos, our two beloved satellites, less lumpy.

Right, my election speech:

If elected to the Senate as a representative of the Colony of Parrwater, I promise to:
  • Promote Parrwatrian Sovereignty.
  • Finally get around to getting a Colonial Constitution made for us.
  • Keep the location of Parrwater as obscure and murky as it can be with our properly-defined borders.
  • Promote huggling. Huggling's generally good.
  • Make Parrwater a leading force in the fight against the Metric System.
  • Establish the His Dark Materials trilogy as mandatory reading in our non-existant schools.
  • Lead a coup d'état against and work cooperatively with whoever is elected as my fellow Senator.
  • Help bring new citizens to Parrwater.
  • Ban the use of motorboats on our territory and personally patrol the border with a range of automatic weapons.
That is all. Vote Michael N. Mazur as Senator for the great Colony of Parrwater!

We can assign mandatory reading material?! I need to read our constitution more carefully, and see which other powers I can abuse.

If elected, I promise my vote for or against Parrwatrian sovreignty will be available to the highest bidder.

I promise to allow special interest groups to pay all bribes using PayPal.

I promise to blame you for whatever wrongdoing I'm caught red-handed at doing.

I promise to say it's the other guy's fault for whatever bad policies I support.

I promise to enforce prayer in school, as long it's only to the god of political expidency.

I promise mandatory reading of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxyin all classrooms.(Well, except maybe the fourth book).

I promise to find enemies, so that our defense contractors can provide full employment.

Remember, anything I do is all your fault, and a vote for me is a vote for me, so vote for me.

I, Malcolm Gerhardt, hereby announce my candidacy as the Parrville Senator. If elected i would use my position to push for measures to help spread the influence of the Aerican Empire. Below are my visions for the future of Aerica

-Create embassies in places where self-goverence and a healthy dose of the ridiculous thrive, specifically single shard MMO's and Youtube.

- Expand two more colonies to accomadate the new citizens that will flock to the Empire.

- Begin filming Youtube videos portraying my self and my man servent, claiming ridicilous thing for the Aerican Empire. Examples being New York City, The Ocean, Bathroom at Walmart, making myself dictator for life. Each would be foiled by my sidekick explaining why i'm dumb. It would have comic value and education other on Aerican law.

-get the approval of John Cleese (the plumber, not the actor)

I look forward to serving all how vote for me, and sniggering at all those that don't.

I will tenuously put my name forward for Senatorship of Retsaot Island.

Why should you vote for me? I'm quiet, hard working, I don't seek power, I'm honest, mostly humble, and attuned to the needs of the psuedo-common hominid. In short, everything your usual politician isn't.

So vote for me! A vote for me is a vote for something slightly different!
Or don't. I honestly don't mind. Because, you know, it's up to you. I'm sure you'll choose the best person for the job. I got faith in humanity. At least for now...

Well here it is. I nominate myself to the post of Senator for the colony of Earth.

I am a somewhat new citizen of the Empire, and am still learning how things work around here, but I am a fast learner. I have contributed mildly but proudly to the discussion related to our newly minted coins.

I promise to never make empty promises, or full ones for that matter. And if you vote for me, that will be one more vote for me than if you didn't.

So, there you go: vote for me!

I would like to nominate myself for Senator of Northern Plutopia.

My campaign promises are as follows:

I promise to NEVER impose any sort of taxes to our peoples, they earned their money they should get to use for what they like.

I promise to never have "relations" with any interns we may hire, unless of course I was drugged and do not know the extent of my actions while unconscious... wink.gif

I promise to ensure that our Penguin Death squads have all the necessary resources to maintain the safety of our citizens.

I will work my hardest to make the Aerican Empire the first nation to utilize the ice found on the Moon for our boozing enjoyment, of course after we land our homemade rocket and colonize said floating rock for the Aerican Empire.

Greetings all!

I am running once again for Senator of Earth colony. I've had the position since 2001, just a few months after I became a citizen. I am currently President of the Senate.

I would like to continue my service to both Earth Colony and to the Aerican Empire.

I was busy with humanitarian aid over the last few days and since my PR people did not get the memo (or are slacking off) it appears I must post this on the forum myself. Without further delay I would like to announce that I am running for a senate seat in the ever beautiful colony, The Pasture. As a resident of a far corner of the Pasture I would like our people united (untied for some) together under a common banner of silliness.

Remember, its not just for us. Think of the children!
