TheJakal is a citizen of Pakistan, a renowned Pakistan politician and the founder and current Party President of The Saeen Party in Pakistan. He is well known internationally in the New World for his tanking, his deft handling of Foreign Affairs and his passion for the betterment of ePakistan.
Beginnings and Early Life
TheJakal started the game on July 05, 2011, having been invited to it by Hamis11, another Pakistani citizen. Pakistan at the time was generally poor, and TheJakal had to make do with low wages by working in a Chinese company to survive. Occasionally, he would buy weapons and food with what what he earned and fight for ePakistani interests. Soon he bought gold, and having established a food company, he was self sufficient in food.
As Pakistan has a small population, TheJakal was welcomed into the community and within a month, was offered to run for Congress. He gladly accepted,and consequently won the Congressional elections, but his tenure as a Congressman wasn’t successful. He proposed Iran as a NE – a rogue proposal- and was attacked over proposing it, and later resigning over this issue.
Still a relatively young and new player, TheJakal received advice from well known legends in ePakistan, Kualkerr and Mavie75, which helped him progress initially and grow. However, the warrior nature of the young player wasn’t satisfied with the weak position of Pakistan externally and in FA – and any questions on this pricky issue would always be met by the same response by everyone – Pakistan’s low population.
Soon, Jakal started inviting people to the game through facebook and used his personal pages to make the game more known in Pakistan. He recruited over 200 people to eRepublik – which can be witnessed by his staggering number of society builder medals – but most quit for a variety of reasons ranging from boredom to a lack of power sharing by the elite at the time.
In March 2012, a quarrel ensued between TheJakal and his former mentor Kualkerr. Soon after it, TheJakal was kicked out from ePakistani community and victimized on the IRC channels. However, in a way, it was this quarrel that really pepped up his interest to play the game more seriously, and he started splurging his credit card buying gold and establishing factories and the best training grounds for himself.
The attacks however continued, and soon, TheJakal was pretty much forced to leave ePakistan and seek refuge in Eusa. It was here that he was introduced to Ishamael Naeblis, another RL Pakistani, established in Eusa and Easy Company, a well run US militia, unfunded by the US government, but growing daily under Gnilraps’ excellent leadership.
However, the situation in ePakistan slowly got better, and having learned a lot and grown exponentially from their experiences in eUSA, both Ishamael Naeblis and TheJakal joined ePakistan and regained PK citizenship. Along with Innocent Warrior, they formed The Saeen Party, as the voice of the opposition in Pakistan.
Return to Pakistan – and the Formation of TSP
The party’s first attempt at CP elections wasn’t bad .The candidate, Ishamael Naeblis got 40% of the vote largely because of TheJakal’s backing, and was later accepted as MOFA under the CP. However, relations between TSP and the ruling elite were generally bad and sporadic arguing and fighting would occur almost daily on the Pakistani channel on IRC, #epakistan.
The party was unable to run in the ensuing Congressional elections because of tactics employed by the ruling elite to keep it out, however its candidate for the CP position, Ishamael Neablis, was successful on this occasion and elected unopposed.
However, TheJakal and Ishamael developed differences, largely because of the fact that Ishamael left the TSP out of the picture once he got the power and the two drifted apart. As the drifted apart, TheJakal became friendlier towards Raao, an old and well respected ePakistani statesman. Along with Ahsan Shahbaz, another ePakistani player, they established theSenate which was at the time the strongest institute in Pakistan made up of gold tanks and players with experience of running the country.
Joining the main stream and services for Pakistan
Ishamael was succeeded by TheJakal and theSenate’s pick for CP, Mohammad Bilal. As the most active Pakistani around on IRC and ingame, TheJakal was able to provide a lot of help initially to this young player. Along with this, TheJakal was also providing daily supplies in the form of food and q7 tanks to all the players that he had recruited to help them in DO completion and was able to form a team of young players who contributed to Pakistan socially, economically and militarily.
Later on, Bilal’s issues with several TSP members along with his trolling of government figures caused him to lose TheJakal’s support, but TheJakal remained instrumental particularly in Pakistan’s successes, and his love for Pakistan was shown once again in Pakistan’s win over Uruguay where he tanked 32 million damage and spent over 600 gold in less than 24 hours for Pakistan’s sovereignity.
While TheJakal’s road of fame has been a controversial one, his love, devotion and sincerity for Pakistan has been second to none. While his quarrels with several Pakistani players have given him notoriety, his loyalty to the great nation of Pakistan is never doubted even by his staunchest opponents. An individual who works for the betterment of his nation and has the ability to make it interesting and fun for the entire community, TheJakal is a role model for many ePakistanis.
