Ivan Blair was a citizen of New Zealand and Ireland. He began his life, and lived for quite some time, in Ireland where he got involved in National and Party Politics. Blair was known to be active in the Media (2x Minister of Information, 1x Deputy) and has been moderately involved in Military Affairs.
Ivan Blair began his life in Ireland. He was instantly attracted to the Political Aspect of the game and, with the help of his early mentor JohnSmith2K9, he became a Member of the Irish Congress after only a month of playing (May 2010). Around the same time, Ivan got involved in his party, the Irish Freedom Party. After putting off his bid for the Party president to combat a PTO of the Party, Ivan ran and was elected in August 2010, at a time when the party was the #1 Party in Ireland.
Also during his first few months in the game, Ivan devoted a lot of time to his newspaper, Blair's Digest. This devotion got recognition twice in Ireland, and he was twice offered and twice accepted the post of Minister of Information. He was quite successful his first term in the post, however he failed to maintain appropriate activity in his second term and resigned the post before the end of the term. This resignation was a severe blow to Blair's Political Career and began a disconnect between Blair and Ireland.
Emigration from Ireland
In the Early Months of 2011, Ivan Blair began to feel a pull to begin a life elsewhere. He had caused some controversy in Ireland by writing a few articles critiquing the then-government of the Island Nation. While he has come to regret some of the things he said in those turbulent times, the sentiment to begin anew was strong. In May 2011, Blair, after weeks of planning and deliberation, moved to New Zealand. The choice was simple; the nation was English-Speaking, similar to Ireland in size, and had a strong community of citizens.
Upon arrival in New Zealand, Blair quickly tried to get involved. Blair joined Peace 'n' Prosperity Party and chose to do what he did best; Write. He published a few articles that caught the recognition of more experienced citizens of New Zealand, focusing on his interests and feelings on the Foreign Policy of New Zealand and the World as a whole. This recognition got Ivan Blair appointed as the Deputy Minister of Information by Crusadercarl on June 5, 2011, less than a month after he immigrated to the country. He has taken the role with pride, not looking to make the same mistake he made in his second term as Minister of Information in Ireland.
On June 16, he becomes the Director of Recruitment of the Peace 'n' Prosperity Party and on June 26, Blair got elected in Congress of New Zealand.
