dionysus was a politician from the Netherlands. He served two terms as 6th President of that country. In addition, has served another two terms as 10th President of the Netherlands (the second of the United Netherlands), and one term as president of India.
dionysus was born on 28 February 2008 in Western Netherlands region of Netherlands. He was invited by another erepublik member by the name of Foreigner who had written a post about erepublik on a games forum. After reading up a little on how to play the game, he joined food company Wine & Bread which was at the time managed by Metsadah
Early political career
dionysus realised that politics was a way to do more than just clicking a few buttons every day. He started his political career at Dutch Erepublik Party party, better known as DEPP. This was a left-wing political party and one of the top three parties at the time. The party has changed names since. It had Socialistische Partij van het Volk (SPV) or People's Social Party and Links Nederland (Left Netherlands) as name afterwards and is currently named Liberal Social Democrats.
Being disappointed by the lack of activity withing the DEPP party, dionysus joined Iron & Wine. He became an involved member of the party. He came up with new ideas for the Dutch economy. His activity within the party and for Netherlands was quickly recognised when he got the opportunity to work as Dutch ambassador to the Mediterranean Alliance.
dionysus ran for party presidency in May 2008 but was beaten by Metsadah who already held the party presidency. Metsadah quited erepublik in June 2008, so dionysus had good hopes to win the elections in June. He lost to Wim but dionysus became second-in-command. He wrote large parts of the new manifesto for the next presidential elections. A few days after the party elections Wim resigned as party president, granting the position to dionysus. Iron & Wine was the biggest party and this resulted in a victory during the national presidential elections.
As president he created Dutch Health Care organisation OE_Volksgezondheid to manage the National Hospital and Q2 food company. The hospital company was upgraded to Q3 and food company to Q2. A trainingcentre for hospitals was also created to get more skilled employees for the National Hospital.
By the end of August 2008 he had to resign as party president because of real life issues. He became politically inactive and was also less active in general.
From November 2008 on he became politically active again and joined Iron & Wine once more. He regularly commented in political discussions in Netherlands and he became congressman for East region the same month.
In December 2008 he decided he wanted a new adventure so he joined newly independent India to help build up the country economically and politically after a post on the UK forums by srachit. He convinced former countryman BroodRoosterNL to join as well. Soon after joining he noticed many problems between existing political parties. The main issues were related to the fact they were from rivaling countries. Disappointed by this course of the existing parties, he founded India First together with BroodRoosterNL and srachit. India First claimed to be the first party without real ties to former fatherlands. dionysus also ran for presidency in India, but could not succeed against the bigger parties and got only four votes out of sixty-nine. One of the reasons he did not succeed was that India First was created just eleven hours before presidential elections. dionysus also wrote large parts of the manifesto that would be used for two months by the party.
At the beginning of December 2008 he supported the party presidency of srachit who is a real life Indian. By regularly publishing articles about the party, India First grew from four members to twenty-seven. dionysus became congressman for his political party in Madhya Pradesh in December 2008. The biggest success for the party came when srachit became president of India.
At the party president elections of January 2009, dionysus won as only candidate. He immediately started with plans to write an updated version of the manifesto. He became the successor of srachit at the next presidential elections.
During his term as president Indonesia declared war on India to get hold of high iron region Karnataka and also to get a border with archrival Romania. Dionysus was quick in response and arranged many allies for India. Indonesia eventually did not attack Karnataka during his presidency, but during the next presidential elections an Indonesian candidate won and gave the remaining Indian regions to Indonesia.
Back in the Netherlands
After roaming the world for a month, dionysus returned to his native country The Netherlands. He became politically involved again and became party president for his old party Iron and Wine. During the next congress elections Iron and Wine became the biggest party in congress.
In May he was re-elected as president and with that became the first president for the United Netherlands elected by the people from both Belgium and The Netherlands.
After some problems in the government in June, dionysus became the new Minister of Home Affairs. He also became congressman again at the end of June.
dionysus manages a few companies although not all are used at the moment.
Indian Chapati is a Q4 food company that is currently in Indonesia, which has been temporarily closed.
Van Gogh Wheat is a Q3 grain company in the United Netherlands.
