Aussie Vegeta (AV) was born and raised in Australian who became extremely active in a very short space of time.
Born on Day 502, in New South Wales, Australia, AV awakened to a huge world with endless possibilities. Not being one to waste time, he sought out mentors and was asking questions to learn as much as possible. Mentors at this time were corny-ratbag and Cottus Arci.
Being that AV is interested in business in RL, his immediate attention went to owning a company and getting to know the Minister of Industry (at that time corny-ratbag and deputy Scotywest). Within a few weeks AV had gathered and borrowed enough gold to purchase a food company.
At level True Blue Party (TBP), mostly due to it's name and the fact that corny-ratbag had been such a support in early days. At just 20 days old AV ran for congress under TBP in NSW, and missed only by 1 vote!, AV joined the
In the coming weeks after discussions with then ADSP Party president br0adside and then Prime Minister Patti11, AV decided his roots in TBP were for the wrong reasons and joined ADSP.
Since then AV has been very active in ADSP internal politics. He was named "Secretary of Fun", and enjoyed that role thoroughly. After the Party president elections in May where Leonard Lyman was made Party president, AV joined the team in discussing how ADSP should approach the coming Senate elections. With the disappearance of Party president, AV stepped up and named himself "Campaign Manager" for the coming election. AV gained the backing and recognition of more senior players at this time.
After the Senate elections, there was dispute amongst the party as to who should step into the missing Party president's spot:
- Ranger Bob - A well known and respected citizen who had recently been the highest voted senator in the country.
- haugenmatt - An old face returned from China.
- Aussie Vegeta - A very young player, but one who had been vital to the senate campaign.
There was quite a bit of discussion over this, but the Party president returned to his position. With Leonard back, AV promptly worked with him to re-build the areas of ADSP that had slipped in his absence. Leonard named AV as his Vice Party president at this time.
On the 1st of June Leonard Lyman announced his departure from the game with RL quoted as his reasoning. Fortunately for ADSP he had clearly named a successor: Aussie Vegeta!
Since being handed the role of Party president, AV has stepped up and put forward his views that ADSP has become quite a whiney un-unified party. He has created party roles and on the 8th of June there was so much interest in the roles they even went to the party to vote for their chosen party leaders.
AV later become member of KnightHawks Military Council.
Due to interest in all things business, AV had been in constant contact with the then Minister (corny-ratbag) and Deputy Minister (Scotywest) in the Department of Industry (DoI), as well as the then Prime Minister (Patti11). Communicating his strong passion for business and business people, AV was soon asked to join the DoI as an apprentice. At the end of that term, corny-ratbag left DoI for RL reasons, and Scotywest became the new Minister. Prime Minister Patti11 (who was re-elected) named AV as the new Deputy Minister of Industry. Trained swiftly and well by Scotywest AV shined in his new role, and half way through the term was named Minister of Industry (Scotywest was also Deputy PM at the time, so had alot else going on). With this promotion, it made him the youngest cabinet member eAustralia had ever seen. AV has been the Minister of Industry since this time.
Whilst TBP, AV ran for the senate in the April elections, but missed out by 1 vote. Since his move to ADSP, AV has run for senate in the May elections and was elected as a senator for Northern Territory. An active member in the senate, and will stand for election again next term.
In the run up to the June Prime Ministerial elections, AV strongly voiced his opinion that a party should not be backing another candidate while their own party had one willing to run. Because of his strong belief in this, AV candidates in the ADSP primary elections. He was defeated by Tim09, but backed his parties candidate 100%. AV supported the candidate that the party had selected.
With the primaries complete, AV sought to give Tim09 all the help he could in the lead up to the election. Named as Tim09's deputy, AV fought hard for the campaign. Tim09 defeated Xavier Griffith by only 3 votes in the closest election that this nation had ever seen! This made AV the Deputy Prime Minister (and the youngest one ever at that)!
Learning all he could in his time as Deputy Prime Minister, AV communicated with a few of his mentors (mainly Cottus Arci, corny-ratbag, Ranger Bob and Derek Apollyon), and after some lengthy discussions decided to campaign for the July term of Prime Minister!
As Party president of ADSP, he decided to encourage any players that wanted to run to have a go, and 5 candidates came forward. br0adside, Aaron Camm, Leonard Lyman, Tim09 and Aussie Vegeta. During the week Br0adside dropped from the running, and Leonard Lyman wasn't very active (which showed in the final result).
Over a week of questions provided by the Vice Party president Ranger Bob. The party voted who they wanted to represent them in the coming election. ADSP voted following the week of questions, the results were:
The other candidate at that time was from the ANP: calibur. Both calibur and AV were in discussion with the other Party presidents for who would back their candidacy. AV went into discussion with the PP of the ACP which started out quite positive, but proceeded to go quiet after a while. However the party AV really wanted behind him was TBP. Through a discussion with corny-ratbag, AV found out that calibur had also asked for their support, and that there was a vote to take place.
Aussie Vegeta beat calibur for TBP's support, and continued with his campaign. HOWEVER.....
For some reason at this point calibur and the ANP decided to back down from their campaign (possibly as without TBP they thought they didn't stand a chance), and decided to encourage AIP's Xavier Griffith (who had been in eIsrael since the previous election where Tim09 became Prime Minister) to campaign again.
This also meant for some reason that TBP had to re-vote who they would support. TBP re-voted and again AV came out victorious over Xavier Griffith.
The Friday night prior to the election, corny-ratbag (who was bound to become Deputy Prime Minister as he had been asked by both candidates), hosted a debate live on IRC. It was to give final insight to the public about who they wanted for their next Prime Minister.
On the 5th of July the public went to the polling booths, 417 citizens showed up to declare their support for their next Prime Minister... The results:
Australian Democratic Alliance -- 31 Votes
ANP & AIP - Xavier Griffith - 175 Votes
ADSP & TBP - Aussie Vegeta - 211 Votes
More than half of the nation voting for AV!
Highlights of AV's term in office were resigning the 2nd run of Wargames, as well as securing the return of South Australia and being involved in the origins of the SOL alliance (including signing the agreement). A huge thanks to my cabinet who were a great support to me during my term in office.
Business & Saiyan Pride
After some discussion with corny-ratbag AV founded Saiyan Pride. It started off purchasing a humble Q1 food company which was renamed to Chi Chi's Cookin... Using corny-ratbag's GM Records (a must have for any General manager), It began to flourish.
Following the success with Chi Chi's Cookin... Saiyan Pride purchased a struggling Q1 Grain company, which was renamed to Gohan's Farmin... Over the next month with the profits, and a loan from StewartB and TheBlackAdder, Saiyan Pride was able to upgrade both to Q2 companies, and also add a 3rd company Bulma's Building, a Q1 house company.
Over the next month the new wargames took it's toll on the food and grain markets, impacting on productivity of Chi Chi's Cookin... and Gohan's Farmin... However the first house sale helped along profits. Master Roshi's Woody (a Q2 wood company) was purchased for a bargain price, and around the same time Bulma's Building was upgraded to Q2 as well.
This was around the same time that the General manager of Saiyan Pride (Aussie Vegeta), was very occupied in Government and military positions, and lost some focus on the Organisation and it's companies. Lews Therin-Talemon came on as a 50% partner and took over the day to day runnings of the project. This input of cash paid off the loan to StewartB and TheBlackAdder. During the term when AV was Prime Minister, Lews Therin-Talemon purchased the other 50% of the company with his new business partner Schoft. This funding went towards AV's Tour of Duty.
Since returning from his Tour of Duty, AV has injected funds into the organisation and obtain a 1% stake in Saiyan Pride. Due to Lews Therin-Talemon's departure from the game, AV decided to sell out of Saiyan Pride, but kept a good standing friendship with ex-partner Schoft.
AV joined the AMC Redbacks and was an active part of the Messaging campaign in the Resistance War (RW) for QLD. As eAustralia's Defence Force evolved under Cottus Arci during Patti11's 2nd term as PM, AV moved into the ACUK Koala's. When the opportunity for squad commanders arose, AV willingly put his hand up for the job, and was voted into the 2nd squad (Foxtrot Squad - which he renamed to Super-Saiyan Koala's) commander position from June 8 until July 2009. He was the first elected leader of this squad. AV was instrumental with his squad in the RW for Tas, and one day dreams of being strong enough to be a DropBear! On day 674 AV got his first Battle Hero Medal.
During the War with Brazil, AV traveled to a region of Peru that was under Brazilian control and started a Resistance War (with funding assistance from Derek Apollyon). He earned another Battle Hero Medal as well as securing the region for Peru (earning a him Resistance Hero Medal), it also pulled a large amount of damage away from the West Australian front. Also around this time AV returned to lead the Super-Saiyan Koala's until departing to eJapan.
Upon his return from eJapan, AV has been actively involved with the Australian Defence Force. Starting with Deputy Dropbear Marshall and Deputy Minister of Defence in Xavier Griffith's first term, and as Chief of the Defence Force in Xavier Griffith's second term. AV dream was to see a vibrant & fun but focused military for eAustralia that would be as quick to deploy to action as it would be to return for a drink with each other after the fight.
Aussie Vegeta was one of the first 40 Field Marshals of Australia.
Later AV become member of KnightHawks.
Early in 2010, AV was fed up with the way the senate just made rules for the sake of making rules, and made it so difficult to pass anything through without miles of red tape. This along with all the parties bickering both on the forums and in the media. AV decided to leave the country to experience how other countries carry themselves. AV settled in eJapan and found many new friends. AV became a senator within afew weeks of being in eJapan, and found that laws passed in a smooth and prompt manner (much different to eAustralia). Also was involved in the Military in eJapan. However with eIndonesia retaking Western Australia, AV felt it was time to return to his homeland, to assist with re-securing WA and also to assist preparing the nation for the impending release of V2. After 2 terms in the Senate, and 3 months in eJapan, AV headed home.
