Tony Bird was born in London, during the EDEN invasion of Britain. He was going to be born in South West of England, but it was occupied by the USA at the time, and afterwards he didn't move anyway because the region didn't have a hospital. Since then, he joined the Radical Freethinkers Alliance and has founded the newspaper Tony's World. At one point, he ran for congress in the East Midlands.
He "died" shortly after the release of eRepublik Rising, due to heavy glitches and his dislike of Rising. The fact that he had grown tired of political infighting and what he saw as the immaturity of his nation's community was also a contributing factor.
He was resurrected on day 1319, and joined the political party Every Single One rather than rejoining a now weak RFA.
