He was an active Swiss politician, who has served as both President and vice president, as well as performing executive duties in countless departments under many different administrations.
He took part in passing key pieces of Swiss legislation such as the Constitution and the Flying Dove Treaty.
He is considered to be a staple of Swiss society. He has been a major player in Swiss politics for longer than most citizens have been alive. His opinion has been greatly valued by all recent presidents. Though he refuses to be president again, Rican is almost as powerful as one in his own way.
In July 2012, Rican was cited as being one of the most influential Swiss presidents by journalist Penguin4512. He was described as having "approached the rest of Switzerland with a vision greater than any who had come before him."
Rican's presidency was during one of the more turbulent times in Swiss history. Despite facing many challenges abroad as well as domestically, Rican, along with the help of an excellent cabinet, was able to overcome almost all the challenges faced. During his term, Switzerland retained its freedom and was able to hold a congressional election. One of the more notable occurrences was the passage of the United States through Switzerland, which began a friendship between the two nations. At the end of his term, Rican was asked by many to run for reelection. However, exhausted by the intense political life of Switzerland, Rican declined.
On January 15th 2012, Rican formed the ANTI-IMPERIALIST MOVEMENT.
It was a vision of his to abolish all the senseless wars in the New World and stop Imperialistic bullies from preying on weaker countries. The movement soon caught on in the country and has been growing ever since. For the first five months Rican was the leader of the party, until in June he decided he wasn't going to run for re-election, needing a break from eRepublik, and handed the job over to someone else. However, he still plays a major role in the parties community, and its leadership.
In July 2012 Switzerland was in deep trouble. Croatia had completely wiped them and didn't show any signs of letting up. Switzerland just didn't have enough power on it's own to hold off Croatia. So the Swiss government went to their alliances to get some help. Switzerland's current alliance was the Circle of Trust. At the CoT summits Rican, Patar333, and Swiss president at the time vukio all pleaded there case to the rest of the alliance. The three of them also went to a couple of ONE meetings. The CoT is considered to be a proONE alliance so it was possible for them to get help from ONE as well.
