MachtGeil joined eRepublik on day 635 of the New World (16.08.2009)
He started in his real life home Region North Rhine-Westphalia, which was under Hungarian Occupation back then.
Some weeks later when hungary handed the occupied regions back to eGermany, MachtGeil move to the Capital Saarland to finally live in a region with Q5 hospital. He gained the german citizenship and participated in the presidential elections. He voted for The German Eagle, who also won the elections.
MachtGeil was an active member of the Social Democratic Party (SPeD) and was a part of the radical left wing in the SPeD. Back then the SPeD was one of the biggest parties with a lot of leftist political ideologies. This was because egermany was lacking a far-left party and the SPeD functioned as a party for all the leftists.
MachtGeil also joined the Internationale and participated in the attempt to free Western Siberia from the indonesian occupation. It was organized mainly through the Russian Communist Party (CPSU) the Internationale and the Indonesian Communist Party (PKeI). Though the operation ended in defeat, it showed that the occupation through indonesia faced resistance through the russian people. WS was given back voluntarily by Indonesia shortly after.
At that time, there were some tensions inside the SPeD, caused through the more center aligned faction. They were uncomfortable with the increasing activity of radical leftists in the SPeD like MachtGeil with his Communist ideals. Though the radical leftist faction tried to collaborate with the centrists, the centrists didnt want to continue their work for a unified left party and leaved. To name a few of them: Ban Danna, Entorius Yargestein and Mr. Niemand.
MachtGeil continued his activity for the SPeD and was the main founder of the first political commune in egermany - the "Sozialistische Kommune". This commune wasnt an official party organisation though it was organised and runned by members of the SPeD: Herr Schmidt, RudiDutschke, Walther Rathenau, Nymphe, Tiuri and MachtGeil.
Because it was MachtGeils idea, he was choosen as main coordinator of the commune. On the most active time the commune consisted of an estimated number of 25 commune workers and 3 active companies. MachtGeil put a lot efford, work and gold in the commune and it was active for a couple of months.
Because he didnt want to be the only workhorse in the commune and because he wanted to do something else MachtGeil leaved his position as commune coordinator. He also was two times congressman for the SPeD and part of the partyleaders.
Because there was no one to replace MachtGeil in the position as commune coordinator, the commune was shut down and the companies remained in the hands of Nymphe, who now runs the companies as normal ones, to someday repay all of the contributors to the commune.
MachtGeil traveled around the world, mainly because of his activity for the Red Brigade, a far left paramilitary organisation. He runned for president in eAustria, to support the comrades there in their struggle. Unfortunately he had only little success, as he was quite new to the country and faced heavy resistance from many fascists in eAustria.
As the German Polish war started in the End of 2009, he moved back to eGermany to defend it against the polish Invasion. The combined efforts of Phoenix, the egerman citizens and the Red Brigade were ultimately futile and on the 8th January the Capital Saarland was conquered in the Battle of Saarlingrad.
During the time of the polish occupation, MachtGeil moved to Kaliningrad, Russia like many other german refugess. He joined the CPSU after gaining the russian citizenship and continued his work for the Red Brigade. He was selected as Commander of the Red Brigade before, as former "el Commandante" Antun, stepped back because of inactivity. MachtGeil successfully fought the inactivity in the Red Brigade and established a weapon company in russia for weapon supply. The Red Brigade also participated in the Liberation of eGermany on the 21st January initiated by Phoenix.
Soon after the successfull liberation, MachtGeil moved back to Saarland, eGermany and a couple of weeks later founded the Communist Party of eGermany (KPeD) together with Degenhardt and a couple of other people from the German Battalion of the Red Brigade. He founded the Party because he wanted a party for the people sharing his ideals and to promote communism in eGermany. The party turned out to be quite successfull, attracting more members than MachtGeil ever expected and even surpassed the SPeD in the amount of members. KPeD and SPeD worked closely together and because both parties remained in the top5 of the german parties, no damage was done to the leftist movement in egermany.
MachtGeil(KPeD and SPeD) then ran for presidency in February 2010 against Konrad Neumann (Open Minded Germany), though he knew that his chances were quite low. He ended up at place three and with 17,55 % of the votes. His half serious run for presidency though were successfull in supporting his second attempt one month later. MachtGeils opponent in March 2010 was Ban Danna, running for DSM and OMG. MachtGeil was backed up by KPeD, SPeD and the PPD. Because he successfully convinced the PPD to support him, by promising not to create a communist economy and including the PPD in his cabinett, he won the election against Ban Danna. Gobba the Minister of Finance of Konrad, saw MachtGeils victory coming and stole the entire treasury of eGermany to blockade MachtGeils government. His true intensions are hard to guess, as Gobba never officially said anything about it. He probably didnt like to see his influence in egermany decreasing and also disliked MachtGeil and some of his ministers like SvenB1982(MoE) and bernhardms(MoF). Despite gobbas attempts to sabotate MachtGeils government, his term turned out to be quite successfull for egermany. Out of nothing they build up another treasury (around 1K gold) and some regions were successfully retaken. MachtGeils reforms regarding better informations and more openness in the egerman politics were also quite successfull. For example the intensification of the daily Deutschlandnachrichten and the daily articles from the MoFA Elisa Vorimberg about whats going on around the world.
MachtGeil only served one term as president because he wanted to focus on his real life a bit more. He supported his vice President Letnix in becoming the next President of eGermany and served from that point on as Letnix's vice President and counselor.
