As a politician of Brazil, he's the player most elected for congress in his country and with the largest amount of votes in Brazilian history. Known as the duck of Brazil, he is constantly using different references within the game.
Gulitiwi is a Brazilian citizen born in the southeast region on June, 22nd 2008, day 215 of the New World. Gulitiwi got to know the game on a big Brazilian forum known as VT, invited by Beta version of eRepublik you were required to publish your résumé in wait ‘til you have received a job proposal by the employer. He wrote what his fellow VT Forum members recommended, “I work every day with 100% wellness”, and waited for his very first job.. He first saw the advertisement of the game in May, but didn't want to join the game alone and waited until his friend accepted his invitation to join this unknown world. In the
V1 and Bugs
On October 14th, 2008, eRepublik launched its new version V1, replacing the previous beta version of the game. After the launch of V1, Gulitiwi slowly started his hibernation.
At the beggining, the game suffered with endless instability, items disappearing and some boring features, some now extinct, for example Trivia. After the update, Gulitiwi's journey began to cease. At the first few days, he bought food to keep his account alive, but a week later he completely stopped logging in the game. His old friends also left the game in the same period.
After his long period of inactivity, on May, 7th of 2009, Gulitiwi received an email from eRepublik warning about his close death. At first, he didn't pay much attention as he had no interest to return to the game.
On May, 15th of 2009, Gulitiwi logged in the game for the first time in five months, however, took a couple weeks to fully return to the game and get together with the whole eBrazilian social places: MSN ChatGroup and Erepublik Brazil forums.
Gulitiwi is always active on mIRC and forums of eRepublik. Usually known as Guli or Duck.
He was the Social Minister for two months in 2010 and with some efforts managed to answer over 50 daily messages helping players during this time.
Gulitiwi is known by making articles with prizes or giveaways. He created his newspaper for free a couple weeks after registering on the game, formerly named eWorld News!. A couple months later he wanted to change the newspaper name to eDuck News! with no success, eRepublik stopped accepting special character for newspaper names, obliging him to use eDuck News instead.
Although he became a successful journalist, it took several weeks before he published his first article, on the day 277 (August, 23rd of 2008) of the New World.
During the launch of Erepublik Rising he created many tutorials to help Brazilian citizens get used to the new features, some of them reaching the world Top articles.
All of his articles have reached Top 5 of Brazil, with some of them reaching Top 5 of the world.
A few days after registering to the game, Gulitiwi joined the party Partido Republicano Brasileiro, but never really interacted with its members. After his long-lasting hibernation period ended, when Guli returned to the game, his party had already become Uniao Brasileira.
In May of 2009, approximately day 528 of the new world, Gulitiwi started to interact with his party members, especially Flausino, Gahnkaz and Nosrial Olem, whom later became some of his best friends in the game at that time. Although he was chatting, the main interaction with the Political module only started on July of 2009, due to Poland trying to take over Brazil.
Poland take over of Brazil
Until late 2009, there was no citizenship module in the game, meaning that anyone, from any country, could vote in any election at that time.
Although that was not the first try to takeover of Brazil politics, was the biggest and most well-coordinated of that time. Polish players managed to get a party to the Top 5 of Brazil, and, at some point, changed the name of it to Uniao Brasileira, his own party, who had to temporarily change its name to Real Uniao Brasileira, to avoid uninformed members of voting in the wrong party.
At that time, Gulitiwi didn’t want to join politics because he was afraid it would consume way too much of his free time, but later agreed after Flausino told him it wouldn’t be a problem, so he became one of the official candidates of the party during the anti-takeover act.
Many countries have helped to block the political takeover voting in the official candidates, and Gulitiwi helped to coordinate votes to every party until day change. The hard work was rewarded with just a dozen of Polish players being elected and his first Congressman medal.
When Guli returned to the game, his former party Partido Republicano Brasileiro, had become Uniao Brasileira and Gulitiwi was one of its oldest members. At that time, the older member you were, the first you would be in the party member list, meaning Gulitiwi was among the top 3 of oldest members still alive in the party.
Uniao Brasileira was known among older players as a way too young party, with many of its members not active in the main Politics and barely electing any congressmen at that time. The party was often seemed as useless among the Brazil Elite because the lack of interaction with the major active parties and mostly doing bad opposition at that time, it changed after Poland take over trial.
A month after the takeover, on the day 634 of the new world, Gulitiwi was elected as the party president and started to interact deeper with Brazil politics and to gather more members to his party. After that election, he started to coordinate his party elections every month, managing to elect most congressmen of the party history.
Around January of 2010, Gulitiwi started to get tired with the politics and created his party Uniao do Guli.
A group of friends, well-known players of Brazil, that were all tired of the repetition in national politics, worked for months to build the foundations of O.D.I.N., a party that would shake up eBrazilian politics with its roleplay and elect most of the presidents of the Brazilian history. The party was officially founded on the day 920 of the New World by , , Gulitiwi, Hugan, Jazar, , Marco Polo, , and .

During Guli's first few weeks on eRepublik, he has avoided every single battle. Even though they were rare, the Military module during the Beta times was devastating, destroying not just countries involved, but also damaging the players due to the difficulty to recover the Wellness (health, nowadays) and the way low health directly affected and reduced the production of goods.
When paid trainings were introduced to the game, Guli avoided using it for the first couple of months, even though he was one of the top strength of the world at that time, as he thought it was a waste of gold to spend any Gold on the Military Module.
Gulitiwi started to avoid even more military groups when uniformized avatars started to be bigger than the main avatar, sometimes taking up to 50% of the whole useful area of the avatar. The only time he tried to join one group was when the co-founder of CAT,invited him to be one of the first 10 members of a new category of his Military Group – , a group of some of the strongest players of Brazil. Gulitiwi became an official member, even being quoted on the opening article, for nearly 10 minutes, once he realized the group avatar uniform was even bigger than any of the ones he saw before.
In the V1 era, Brazil created different divisions for national defense for soldiers and regular players, as Gulitiwi didn’t want to use any avatar, he created his own Military avatar that is used ‘til today: the Ice Cream Squad.
Gulitiwi founded his Military Unit on the day 1210 of the new world, just a few weeks after the introducion of the Military Unity on the game.
The main goal of his military unit when it was created was to keep all the known eBrazilians as members, some of the former or currently deceased members in the Military Unit were: Dio Jazar, Bunaly, Gahnkaz, Hugan, Suriat, , , Ryan Cullen, , Cavalcanti, , , , , Olorum, dinossauro and many others.
Later, the group became a graveyard of old players along with a friendly Military Unit that focused on players that didn’t want to join any Military Unit but to be independent. The members would receive weapons as bonuses every week, according to the amount of kills they managed to do during that time, the only requirement to receive the weapon bonuses was to add the Ice Cream in any part of the avatar, at any desirable size.
At this point, the Military Unit had a peak of 50 active fighters, and, at some point, managed to get over 500 members.
Gulitiwi managed to make his own economic empire and is now one of the richest eBrazilian citizens.
Guli Armas Q1
Guli Armas Q1 was the first company created by Gulitiwi.
The company was created by Flausino around May or June of 2009, whom named it Antares Armas Q1. Due his short free time to manage the company, Flausino decided to sell it and put it up for sale on the market, with no luck – no one was interested. Then he began his quest to sell it on the already extinct eBrazilian MSN Chat Group for 18 Golds. Luckily, Gulitiwi was just planning to start his entrepreneur career. As an old bargainer of the eworld, he tried to buy it for 16 Golds, but Flausino denied, he wanted at least 18 Golds on it, or no deal.After many talks, Flausino surrendered and sold the company for 17 Golds.
Guli Armas Q1 was a success in the market, with an average daily production of 40 weapons and managing to sell the whole production, having a daily profit of 1 Gold, around 10% of the gross sales.
Although the company had successful sales for months after its foundation, the worst thing that could have happened to a small weapons company at that happened: Brazil started to have peaceful times, without a single war game, starting the collapse of the Weapons Industry in Brazil.
The weapons price hit their lowest mark and decreased from 7 BRL to 4.5 in a single week. Gulitiwi had to fast think and with some efforts, managed to keep the company stable and producing by decreasing production costs.
He wouldn’t be able to keep the company longer if the price kept getting new lows. The cost to produce each weapon was around 4.4 BRL and the market price was about to hit it anytime, making him decide to cease the sales and stock it. He would be able to stock up to 500 weapons without negatively affecting his personal account.
When the company had stocks of almost 200 weapons, the unlucky trend worsened; Gulitiwi’s computer crashed and he was unable to buy raw materials for the company for over 48 hours. The company ran out of raw materials and all the employees resigned to not lose their hard work medals, collapsing the company.
Gulitiwi was disappointed and has there was the need of 10 employees to reach maximum production at that time, he decided to close the company for good. The stock was used instead of sold and helped to fasten up his achievement of the General patent.
Gulitiwi was known by having organizations in every country of the world.Most of them created by himself, some of them inherited from dead players. This is the list of his known organizations:
Gulitiwi is known as the duck of Brazil, mostly because he's constantly using different duck references everywhere.
