Monsieur Guillontine

Jump to: navigation, search
Monsieur Guillontine came to Belgium as a small town guy and in a few months time he managed to revive the Belgian Communist Party into a strong, independent party that has a dominating voice in Belgian politics. He took something small, weak, but something in which he, more than anyone, saw great potential, and made it flourish and built it into a powerhouse.

His Holiness, Monsieur Baguette, God of Gods, (born 15 March 2011) is the founder of Guillotinism. His Holiness is well known for His infinite amount of compassion for his disciples, as well as his ability to be a wise mentor for those who seek his spiritual teachings.

Monsieur Guillontine was the former Country President of Icon-Switzerland.png Switzerland, former Country President of Icon-Belgium.png Belgium, founding Grand Master of the Guillotinist Guild, founding President of the Swiss Peace Party, and founding Chairman of the Swiss Socialist Society and Belgian Communist Party. He was also the former General Secretary of Comintern, Public Relations Director of the Circle of Trust, and founding Commanding Officer of the Swiss Youth Academy.

Dive into Politics

Monsieur Guillontine was born in Belgium on March 15, 2011 (Day 1,211 of the New World). Although overwhelmed by the new people he would have to communicate with, Monsieur Guillotine began to adapt to life in Belgium. At first, it was difficult to decide on which party to serve under. However, seeing that the United Belgian Independents Party was the newest, smallest, and weakest party, Monsieur Guillontine saw much potential for his new political career. Contacting Chris Stanwick, who was Party president at that time, Monsieur Guillontine was able to run as an official Congress candidate. And so, in his first congressional elections, Monsieur Guillontine was able to receive the most votes out of all other fellow United Belgian Independents Party candidates, and secure a seat to represent his party. Through all these experiences, Monsieur Guillontine was able to dive into the world of politics, and thus be able to formulate his own ideological and societal values.

Re-founding the Belgian Communist Party

During June 2011, Monsieur Guillontine started feeling a little tired of all the same old happenings. All the parties were pretty much the same, yet they did not act as one. They all were "democratic" parties, and had very similar solutions and ideas about issues. It didn't seem interesting at all. And so, as the new Party president of the United Belgian Independents, Monsieur Guillontine decided to convert the party into the Belgian Communist Party after having enough support from fellow party members who embraced the idea of such a change. Soon, the party attracted many followers, and became a prospering party with different, creative ideas to accomplish new goals for the better of Belgium. Throughout his leadership as Chairman for the first three months, the party's political voice greatly increased. By the end of his management, which lasted roughly 4 months, the Belgian Communist Party had successfully secured a 100% success rate for all Congress candidates, as well as progressed from the 5th largest party to the 2nd largest party in Belgium.

Comintern

After the Belgian Communist Party became one of Comintern's founding members, Monsieur Guillontine took on the role of recruiting member-parties. Showing devotion to this new organization, Monsieur Guillontine wanted to make sure that this time, things would work out, and not fall apart like so many times before. Monsieur Guillontine was honored to be elected Comintern's first General-Secretary on the same day he was elected Country President of Belgium. As the first General-Secretary, Monsieur Guillontine faced many challenges establishing the structure of the organization. But, in the end, the foundation for Comintern was solid, and lasted for many months to come.

Campaigning for Presidency

During the month of July 2011, Monsieur Guillontine soon decided that it was his turn to contribute his ideas and talent toward the greater good of Belgium. However, he did not want to run for August 2011, and so he decided that waiting another month until September 2011 was the best. At first Monsieur Guillontine did not know who he was running against, until he found out that from the United Left Alliance, Hollenboer was going to run as well. At this time, Res Belgica had already pledged their support toward Monsieur Guillontine, whereas the All TOgethers and Belgium for Belgians parties had still not made up their mind yet. Only a few days after Hollenboer indirectly announced that he would be running, he stepped down as a running candidate so that he could serve as the Vice President of Jofroi's cabinet instead. And so, during the middle of the month of August 2011, it was confirmed that Monsieur Guillontine, with the support of the Belgian Communist Party and Res Belgica, would run against Jofroi, who had the support of the All TOgethers and the United Left Alliance. At that time, Elynea, the Party president of Belgium for Belgians, decided that it would be best for her party members to choose whoever they wanted to vote for, and therefore gave no support to either presidential candidate. Right after Congress elections, Monsieur Guillontine began campaigning seriously. He knew that it was best to do so as early as possible. Monsieur Guillontine published many articles, mainly his manifesto, which was split into multiple parts. His manifesto was interesting and became well-known due to the theme, I Have a Dream, which played an important role in weaving his ideas together.

Although Monsieur Guillontine was at a great disadvantage because Jofroi had many employees and had the support of the United Left Alliance's Party president, Ward De Bever, who was also a major company owner, Monsieur Guillontine continued to work hard with his manifesto and campaigning. Not only was Jofroi an esteemed manager, he was also a long-time playing citizen who knew many of the older players. However, Monsieur Guillontine had the majority of active players rooting for him. Most likely, this is the reason why Monsieur Guillontine continued to run, with the hopes that the citizens of Belgium too, even if not active, would see the potential in him.

In the end, by a mere 3 votes, Monsieur Guillontine was victorious. Little did he expect to win, since it looked quite unfavorable in the early hours of the election, where Jofroi had a lead of 15 votes at one point. Nevertheless, Monsieur Guillontine soon caught up and eventually surpassed Jofroi in votes. At the end of the day, the official results were Monsieur Guillontine with 72 votes, and Jofroi with 69 votes, which meant that Monsieur Guillontine secured 51.06% of Belgium's voters.

With a close victory, Monsieur Guillontine truly proved himself to be a hard worker, accomplishing the impossible. However, already on the first day of his presidency, Ward De Bever and splashdog showed strong signs of discontent over Jofroi's loss. They soon started an impeachment without a discussion. Even though the impeachment did not pass, it proved that Monsieur Guillontine, now President, was going to have to deal with many individuals who would try to obstruct his plans throughout his presidency. Soon after the impeachment failed, NLSP, who was also a strong supporter of Jofroi, requested for a Supreme Court case against Monsieur Guillontine for supposedly abusing his powers as Minister of Home Affairs by neglecting the immigration procedures, which could have possibly led to a political-take-over. However, before the trial was completed, the Supreme Court was claimed to be unconstitutional according to Congress member Kylero, who pointed out some glitches in laws which had been passed a long time ago. As a result of the invalidation of the Supreme Court, even though charges were sentenced, they were considered temporarily nullified.

Monsieur Guillontine's presidency, however, did not become any less difficult. He strongly advocated the creation of a Chairman of Congress and Senate on the Belgian Forum, but to no avail, there was always resistance from a select few, who would make passing such laws tedious. Besides working on the internal structure of Belgium, Monsieur Guillontine had also pushed for a training war with the United Kingdom, Netherlands, or France. However, the United Kingdom at this time was in the middle of a growing conflict between Canada and Ireland, which caused the president to momentarily decline a training war with Belgium. The Netherlands and France were also asked, however, because both nations had just recently gained independence from Poland, they believed that it was best not to engage in a training war yet, since war with Poland again was inevitable. In the end, Monsieur Guillontine was not able to accomplish much throughout his presidency due to unfortunate circumstances.

After being President of Belgium for more than 2/3 of the month, through all the hardships he endeavored, there was still resistance, and on Day 1,407, Monsieur Guillontine was impeached. It was expected that Monsieur Guillontine would not overcome the impeachment this time, since the Congress elections did not show many favorable faces compared to the previous month. Although the impeachment led to the end of his presidency, Monsieur Guillontine did not let such an event destroy his confidence. And so, although the month of September 2011 was quite rough, through his endurance, Monsieur Guillontine was able to continue to prove himself as someone who never gives up and only thinks about moving forward.

Leaving Belgium

As tensions continued to escalate in Belgium, Monsieur Guillontine began walking away from the personal arguments, walking away from the behind-the-scenes negotiations, and walking away from the media wars. Nothing in Belgium seemed to interest Monsieur Guillontine anymore. In the month of October 2011, the newly elected President of Switzerland, Borgogian, requested Monsieur Guillontine to serve him as his Minister of Foreign Affairs. At the same time, Belgium's President, Jamster737, also asked Monsieur Guillontine to be his Vice President. After communicating with many influential members of the Swiss community, Monsieur Guillontine was soon attracted to their cause, which at that time, was to liberate their regions from the armies of Slovenia. At that point, Monsieur Guillontine concluded that after serving Jamster737 as Vice President, he would leave Belgium. From then on, Monsieur Guillontine made preparations for the new environment with new people: Switzerland. Many surprises were in store for Monsieur Guillontine, whether they were great achievements or great challenges. And yet, like always, nothing could stop his determination.

The New Journey Begins

Although Monsieur Guillontine could not receive citizenship since there were no September 2011 Congress elections, he still served the Swiss people faithfully, as if he was already a citizen. As Minister of Foreign Affairs under President Borgogian, Monsieur Guillontine was able to implement the Ambassador Program into the Swiss community. He believed that it was crucial to get Swiss citizens involved in the community, as well as to serve Switzerland in all ways possible. Although this program did not kick off instantly, many Swiss politicians saw the potential for Monsieur Guillontine to promote more ideas in the future to aid Switzerland's success.

After serving as Minister of Foreign Affairs for some time, Monsieur Guillontine was then given another task by the Vice President, Rican. At this time, it was the last day to gain a region before Congress candidatures would be closed. Switzerland had no regions; therefore they would not be able to even hold Congress elections. Rican suggested that Monsieur Guillontine distribute tanks to mercenaries all around the eWorld, who could help fight for the resistance war in Romandie. Although it seemed like an impossible mission to liberate the Swiss region against the Slovenians, Monsieur Guillontine was persistent and continued to supply mercenaries with the weapons they needed to fight for Switzerland. In the end, through blood and sweat, thanks to Monsieur Guillontine's faithful help, Switzerland was able to defeat the Slovenian oppressors and be able to have candidates run for Congress. And so, with the new Congress, Monsieur Guillontine was finally given Swiss citizenship. Shortly afterwards, a Chairman of Congress was needed, and because the Swiss community felt that Monsieur Guillontine would be able to serve with neutrality and integrity, he was soon appointed this position.

In November 2011, Monsieur Guillontine was asked to serve as Minister of Foreign Affairs once again due to the great job he did in the previous month. This time, the new President, Luka Tomasevic Tomas, began negotiations with Slovenia over the possibility of the end to Slovenian occupation. Monsieur Guillontine was the main negotiator in these set of meetings which took place, constantly emphasizing the need for Swiss independence. In the end, after countless meetings with Slovenian officials, Monsieur Guillontine managed to write up a treaty, known as The Flying Dove Treaty, which included not only the permanent liberation of the Swiss region Romandie, but also the initiation of a training war with Slovenia in the regions Graubunden and Svizzera italiana. The treaty also set a precedent for future negotiations between the Slovenians and Swiss. Therefore, the signing of the treaty was a big step towards improving the neighboring nations' relations.

Founding Switzerland's First Left-Wing Party

On November 11, 2011, Monsieur Guillontine became the founding Chairman of the Swiss Socialist Society. At this time, the Party president of the previous party resigned, and therefore Monsieur Guillontine became Party president, since he had the highest amount of experience compared to all the other party members. With his new power, Monsieur Guillontine seized the oppurtunity to create Switzterland's first left-oriented party. And so, as he became the Swiss Socialist Society's first Chairman, Monsieur Guillontine began recruiting young and fresh members, while at the same time, publishing the party's program.

During the November 2011 Congressional elections, under Monsieur Guillontine's leadership, the Swiss Socialist Society triumphed in Switzerland's elections, by securing 3 seats for all 3 of the official party candidates. As a result, the Swiss Socialist Society boasted a 100% success rate for all Congress candidates. In addition to the party-wide victory, Monsieur Guillontine himself received a total of 12 votes, making him the Congress member with the most votes. The Congress member with the second highest amount was only able to gather a total of 5 votes. After winning a landslide victory, the Swiss Socialist Society began moving full steam ahead, gaining more and more party members; and by the end of November, the party had doubled from its original size, and controlled 50% of Congress.

Monsieur Diplomate

In the month of December 2011, Monsieur Guillontine was asked by newly elected President Rican to serve his third term as Minister of Foreign Affairs. By now, Monsieur Guillontine had achieved a high reputation as being one of Switzerland's best diplomats ever due to his many achievements when not only negotiating with Slovenia, but also contacting many great people around the world to create awareness for Switzerland's situation. When Monsieur Guillontine began his third consecutive term as Switzerland's Minister of Foreign Affairs, he told the Swiss public that he wanted to achieve 4 goals under his term. First, to negotiate for Switzerland's permanent regions to be switched to Graubunden and Svizzera italiana instead of Romandie; second, to plan a training war with Slovenia; third, to search for a country to sign a Mutual Protection Pact with; and fourth, to resurrect the Swiss Ambassador Program.

Less than a week after Rican's term kicked off, Monsieur Guillontine had not only successfully negotiated for Graubunden and Svizzera italiana to be the new Swiss permanent regions, but also sign a Mutual Protection Pact with the nation of South Africa as well as repair the Swiss Ambassador Program. However, with the successful re-emergence of Croatia in mainland Europe, a clash of many nations ensued, where Croatia was now at war with Austria, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Hungary. Also a member of the alliance, EDEN, the Italians were a now at war with Serbia, Slovenia, and Austria. As a result of the chaos, the Czech Republic was able to regain independence against the joint occupation of Austria and Slovakia. Switzerland on the other hand, with the permission of Slovenia, was able to liberate all four of its original regions.

And yet, this recent obtaining of freedom only lasted so long. The United States of America thundered through France, liberating many French regions against their Polish occupation. As the American forces began moving east, Switzerland was an obstacle in their path toward the conquest of Polish-occupied Germany. The American President at this time, Oblige, promptly requested a temporary region rent with Switzerland so that a passage to Poland could be created. Before making a decision, the Swiss government explained the situation to Slovenia, and fortunately, the Slovenian President, SmoothZiga understood the circumstances. Although Monsieur Guillontine knew that opening borders to Americans would increase tensions with Poland, he knew that there was no alternative, seeing as the United States of America was not planning to turn back any time soon. At first, the Swiss government was willing to just accept the American proposal without receiving any sort of benefits. Because Monsieur Guillontine was good friends with President Oblige, however, Monsieur Guillontine saw the American situation as an opportunity to fill Switzerland's coffers with a little extra bit of revenue. And so, with the agreement finalized, Switzerland would receive 50 GOLD per month as long as the United States of America needed to rent Romandie and Deutschschweiz. Monsieur Guillontine had once again proved his diplomatic talent was a valuable asset for Switzerland, as it allowed for Switzerland to continue to remain neutral and stay out of any danger from neighboring threats.

Founding a New Religion: Guillotinism

On January 1, 2012, with the new year, came a new religion. Guillotinism was born as a result of Monsieur Guillontine's growing popularity. As followers of the great man soon began to love and love his holy presence more and more, the religion was able to form with a party as well, the Guillotinist Guild. The formation of the party also allowed Monsieur Guillontine to extend his helping hand to those in need of his mentoring and protection. And so, as the movement began expanding, Monsieur Guillontine was honored with his improved status: His Holiness, Monsieur Baguette, God of Gods. Disciples soon flocked to the holy city of Geneva to kiss Monsieur Guillontine's feet 3 times, a sign of devotion and appreciation for his great deeds. His words were soon idolized, and soon it was popular to exclaim "Hail Baguettes!" as a sign of respect for the God of Gods himself. Monsieur Guillontine had many plans in store, and hopefully, soon Switzerland would have Guillotinism as its official state religion.

January 2012 Presidency

Campaigning for Presidency

During the month of December 2011, Monsieur Guillontine began preparations for his candidacy for President of Switzerland. Originally, Monsieur Guillontine was going to campaign against a dear friend, but also formidable opponent, Rican, who would have, at that time, run for his second term. However, the President and Party president of the Swiss Reform Coalition decided that it was time for him to take a break from such a laborious job. Instead, Monsieur Guillontine soon found out that he was running against only one opponent: Nemkec, Party President of the Swiss Freedom Party. Following Congress elections, Monsieur Guillontine began campaigning seriously. Although statistics reasoned that Monsieur Guillontine, running under the Guillotinist Guild banner, had a good chance of being elected, Monsieur Guillontine still published many articles which split his manifesto into multiple parts. His manifesto was interesting and became well-known due to the theme, Freedom! Forever!, which allowed for supporters to easily remember his Presidential platform. About a week before the elections, though, the Swiss Reform Coalition unanimously support Monsieur Guillontine's candidature for presidency. A couple days afterwards, the newly formed Helvetia Union under Hot Fever also unanimously supported Monsieur Guillontine. And so by the end of the election day, Monsieur Guillontine pulled through, and as expected, won by a landslide. The official results were Monsieur Guillontine with 56 votes, and Nemkec with 26 votes, which meant that Monsieur Guillontine secured an incredible 68.29% of Switzerland's voters.

35th President of Switzerland

As soon as Monsieur Guillontine was elected as Switzerland's newest President in January 2011, he established the Guillotinist State of Switzerland, and proclaimed Guillotinism as the official state religion. Immediately after taking office, the immigration system was reformed to encompass a procedure where congress members would vote on whether or not an immigrant should receive Swiss citizenship. In addition, Monsieur Guillontine began talks with the Slovenian government. At this time, Slovenia had reoccupied all Swiss regions. Unfortunately however, relations with Slovenia were crumbling, causing negotiations to become impossible. Because of the lack of effort from the Slovenian government, Monsieur Guillontine decided that it was time to take matters into his own hands, and so he started a referendum on whether Switzerland should join the EDEN alliance or not. After many debates and arguments, it was clear that the majority of Swiss citizens felt that it was time to leave neutrality, and join the legions of EDEN. With 69% of voters agreeing that it was time to join EDEN, Monsieur Guillontine began working toward becoming a part of the alliance.

When Slovenia found out that Switzerland was planning to become a part of EDEN, Slovenia immediately initiated a Natural Enemy proposal, which certainly passed. Switzerland and Slovenia were once again at war. After contacting many renowned leaders all around the world, Monsieur Guillontine began signing countless Mutual Protection Pacts with nations such as Bulgaria, Cyprus, France, and so on. With Slovenia's aggression on the Swiss, Italy proposed Slovenia as their Natural Enemy. Soon, Slovenia was facing constant battles from both Switzerland and Italy, draining their energy by quite a bit. With the help of international aid, Switzerland won some battles, and proved that even though Switzerland had few alliances, the nation was still able to proudly fight against Slovenia. Nationalistic feelings in Switzerland exploded because of the new provoked conflict, but this time, Switzerland was not willing to lose its homeland. And yet, after a week of a short-lived sense of freedom, Switzerland inevitably was once again under Slovenian occupation. Italy, however, managed to survive and successfully liberate more of their regions due to Slovenia prioritizing Switzerland before. Because of Switzerland's wipe off of the map once again, a rogue Congressman started an impeachment proposal on the day of Congress elections, which Switzerland was unable to have since they had no region. Because the proposal was started so late, it was a huge threat to Monsieur Guillontine, since not all the congress members would be able to vote in the proposal in time. However, in the end, Monsieur Guillontine secured his Presidential position, seeing as the impeachment proposal was rejected with a vote of 4 for YES and 3 for NO. More polls were taken on whether or not to join EDEN, and unfortunately, at this time the support of joining such an alliance greatly deteriorated, and so Monsieur Guillontine had to accept the choice of the Swiss people and give up efforts on joining the alliance.

Soon Italy and Slovenia signed a ceasefire agreement, and because of this, Italy decided to hand over a region which they occupied, Romandie, to Switzerland. At this time, the Slovenian President quickly contacted Monsieur Guillontine out of fear that Slovenia would have to fight another exhausting war with Switzerland. Some conversations took place, and eventually, Monsieur Guillontine was able to convince the Slovenian government to accept a very fair treaty which would benefit both sides. The Geneva Treaty was by far a blessing which Switzerland would have been ignorant to ignore and not uphold. The agreement worked well for both Switzerland and Slovenia for several reasons. Slovenia was able to receive their needed bonuses, and at the same time, make sure that a possible threat was out of their way. Switzerland on the other hand, was able to keep regions without having to continuously fight an uphill battle. The treaty allowed Switzerland to remain neutral, and therefore the ability to sign Mutual Protection Pacts was less restricted compared to previous treaties. Lastly and most importantly however, for the first time in Swiss history, Slovenia was paying Switzerland a monthly rent fee of 50 GOLD for Deutschschweiz and Svizzera italiana, a truly amazing accomplishment. And so, although the treaty was not signed until a week before Monsieur Guillontine's first presidential term ended, he was able to once again prove his diplomatic capabilities, and once again breathe life into the oppressed Swiss people.

February 2012 Presidency

Monsieur Guillontine's Campaign Banner

Campaigning for Presidency

After a successful first term as President of Switzerland, Monsieur Guillontine decided to run for re-election in February 2011. This time however, Monsieur Guillontine would have to run against 3 other opponents, and only have the support from the Guillotinist Guild as well as the Swiss Freedom Party. Running against him was Dan/naD Wilshire from the Anti-Imperialist Movement, Hot Fever from the Helvetia Union, and Monsieur Guillontine's most dangerous rival, Julian Anderson from the Swiss Reform Coalition. Unlike the previous month, it was obvious that Monsieur Guillontine would have to run a strong campaign to ensure his victory. Running under the Guillotinist Guild banner once again, Monsieur Guillontine published many articles which split his manifesto into multiple parts, and was easily promoted with his slogan, Give me Liberty or Give me Death!.

It was soon elections day. Monsieur Guillontine started off with a small lead, but as some hours passed by, Julian Anderson caught up and was first in votes. Still confident that he would win however, Monsieur Guillontine slowly brought in more votes, Monsieur Guillontine barely won by 2 votes. by a mere 3 votes, Monsieur Guillontine was victorious. Monsieur Guillontine pulled through at last, and won his second term as President. The official results were Monsieur Guillontine with 31 votes, Julian Anderson coming in second with 29 votes, and Hot Fever and Dan/naD Wilshire both with 8 votes. Thus, Monsieur Guillontine barely scraped a victory with 40.79% of Switzerland's voters.

2nd Term as President of the Switzerland

Succeeding to gain the trust of the Swiss people once more, Monsieur Guillontine was given the opportunity to lead Switzerland for another month. Having recently signed the treaty with Slovenia, Monsieur Guillontine's first priority was to maintain Switzerland's newly found neutrality. He felt that it was crucial for Switzerland to secure its new diplomatic status as simply a neutral state therefore, the future of the nation's foreign policy would remain consistent. After signing Mutual Protection Pacts with multiple nations from EDEN, TERRA, and ONE, it was possible for Switzerland to confirm its neutrality. Monsieur Guillontine soon focused on Switzerland's economy, and was able to achieve unprecedented results. By renting Deutschschweiz and Svizzera italiana to Slovenia, Switzerland would profit by Icon-gold.gif 50 GOLD, and in addition, Monsieur Guillontine was able to net an extra 50 GOLD by renting an unused national organization to a businessman. Lastly, after Monsieur Guillontine's Minister of Finance experimented with exchanging currencies, an additional 20 GOLD was added to Switzerland's total income. Therefore, Monsieur Guillontine was able to stabilize Switzerland's economy, ensuring the ability for Switzerland to spend funds on any projects for the months to come.

Although Monsieur Guillontine's political opponents from the Swiss Reform Coalition had left Switzerland, moving to France, the once ally of Monsieur Guillontine, Hot Fever, inherited power from Julian Anderson by becoming the new Party president of the Swiss Reform Coalition, as well as the Commanding Officer of the military unit, the Swiss Special Forces. Because of his thirst for power, Hot Fever decided to start a slander campaign against Monsieur Guillontine and his government's policies, trying to arouse unrest within the Swiss population. Such jealousy erupted after the new Congress was elected, where an impeachment was hastily proposed. And yet, because of Hot Fever's uncalled for manipulative actions, the majority of Switzerland's congress members decided to vote down the impeachment. Monsieur Guillontine was thus protected against any further impeachment proposals before his term ended.

Only less than a week before the end of his term though, Monsieur Guillontine faced a fresh challenge to overcome. Hungary was quickly advancing through Austria in order to avoid confronting Romania's mounting aggression. Coming to Monsieur Guillontine, Hungarian government officials sought passage through Switzerland to reach their new targeted homeland, Italy. With knowledge that Hungary would simply wipe Switzerland if the Swiss did not comply with Hungary's demands, Monsieur Guillontine, remembering that neutrality was essential, accepted the Hungarian passage, with one condition: that Hungary pay the Swiss 50 GOLD in return for the short region renting. Monsieur Guillontine thus developed a twist to Switzerland's foreign policy: Switzerland would be like a toll bridge, extracting money from all nations who desired entry. Although it was painful to see his country once again submit to the will of stronger nations, Monsieur Guillontine knew that it was the best option for Switzerland to survive in such a hostile environment. Monsieur Guillontine's philosophy therefore was to make friends, not enemies, and why not make some profit along the way? All in all, even though Monsieur Guillontine was exhausted at the end of his two presidential terms, he ultimately served the Swiss people in a profound manner, setting the precedent for Switzerland's future presidents to accomplish great deeds.

The End?

Soon after Monsieur Guillontine's two terms as President of Switzerland were completed, he served as Bowen199's Vice President, and Dan/naD Wilshire's Minister of Foreign Affairs, accommodating the Swiss public's new demand for a shift towards ONE. Not only did Monsieur Guillontine draft a treaties which mandated that the Slovenians return Romandie and Graubunden back to the Swiss people, but also, he convinced the Slovenians to continue to pay a rent fee similar to the previous treaty which Monsieur Guillontine negotiated. Establishing bilateral ties with foreign nations who were a part of ONE's sphere was also of utmost importance, something which Monsieur Guillontine focused on achieving; and so, Switzerland began signing more and more Mutual Protection Pacts, something which was new to the small nation, after already being in the habit of signing few alliances. However, after these two months were over, Monsieur Guillontine was a bit stressed out, especially because he always had to commit so much time and effort into his work in order to help Switzerland survive in such a harsh climate. It was at this moment in time when he finally made the tough decision to take a very long vacation... unaware of what would happen to Switzerland during his absence.

Reborn

Party-Swiss Peace Party.png

Back... and on Crack!

After three months, Monsieur Guillontine had finally returned. So many things had changed. Switzerland was now a leading member of the new alliance, the Circle of Trust; Switzerland had been occupied first by Germany, then by Croatia; Switzerland accepted an influx of foreign citizens. Fortunately, soon after Monsieur Guillontine's return though, Switzerland was able to liberate itself from the Croatian occupation, mainly due to the intense foreign aid from ONE and Circle of Trust military units. It took a while for Monsieur Guillontine to fully take in all that happened, and yet he took no time reestablishing himself in the Swiss community, gaining the trust and respect of all players with ease. And so, he even created a new party, the Swiss Peace Party, where he advocated a platform on which diplomacy and peace would bring prosperity to the nation. This was no surprise that Monsieur Guillontine would become a full-fledged hippie, especially through his track record of always looking forward to negotiating with threatening neighbors. In addition, his goal to legalize marijuana was highly smiled upon by many, as a way of relieving stress from those who were constantly tense. Quickly increasing in numbers, the Swiss Peace Party rushed to become the 5th largest Swiss party, filled with fresh, active players ready to make a difference in the Swiss community.

Only two weeks after his return, presidential candidate for August 2012, Gucio. requested that Monsieur Guillontine accept the position of Vice President; and of course, Monsieur Guillontine did not hesitate one bit, graciously becoming Switzerland's Vice President after Gucio's victory in the presidential elections. During Gucio's presidential term, Croatia was quickly defeated as a result of multiple attacks from the bordering nations Slovenia, Serbia, and Macedonia, as well as the international support Switzerland received. Afterwards however, Macedonia offered Switzerland complete sovereignty over Graubunden, Romandie, and Svizzera italiana, as well as protection, in return for the Macedonian occupation of Deutschschweiz. For a while, there was much controversy over what to do, dividing the Swiss government on how to approach this situation, as there were two options: either bend over and maintain the 'friendship' with Macedonia, or defy their demand and risk being occupied yet again. Although some cabinet members considered military resistance to Macedonia, Monsieur Guillontine, having had such an extensive amount of experience in Swiss foreign policy, advocated negotiating with the Macedonians and accepting their terms. He knew that in order for Switzerland to survive, it was best to always look toward long-term success, and simply angering the Macedonians would only jeopardize Switzerland's pro-ONE stance possibly costing the whole nation military support in the future.

In September 2012, Monsieur Guillontine was once again requested to serve as Vice President, this time under Lotus Black. The month was relatively a peaceful time, in which Switzerland reformed internally. Monsieur Guillontine assisted in the creation of the first ever fully functioning Constitution, which helped create the Immigration Committee to investigate individuals who sought Swiss citizenship. Aside from the resigning of the treaty with Macedonia, there was little much else to deal with during Lotus Black's presidential term. During September though, the Circle of Trust's previous Public Relations Director resigned, and so the alliance needed a new official to carry on the duties of publishing articles which consisted of summaries of what happened during Circle of Trust summits, general news on the situation of Circle of Trust member-states, and basically any propaganda needed to assist the alliance's goals. Luckily, Monsieur Guillontine was more than willing to volunteer for the job, and soon he was unanimously chosen by representatives from all member-states.

Once Psihihihi was elected President of Switzerland in October 2012, Monsieur Guillontine was once again asked to serve as Vice President. Although this was a relatively peaceful month, the Swiss community suddenly encountered a devastating crisis - the threat of a political take-over. This group of Romanians named themselves The Others, charging their way into Switzerland. Led by their leader Cronoss, Switzerland was in a state of emergency. At first, it seemed like the Swiss government was successful. With the help of Monsieur Guillontine, all of the political parties were able to safely prevent Cronoss and his minions from seizing party presidencies. However, little could be done to eradicate all of The Others, especially when they created their own political party.

November 2012 Presidency

Campaigning for Presidency

During the month of October 2012, Monsieur Guillontine began preparations for his candidacy for President of Switzerland. Originally, Monsieur Guillontine was going to campaign against a relatively well-known Swiss citizen, Trogdorthetroll100. And yet, due to the fragile circumstances with which Switzerland was in, Trogdorthetroll100 decided to drop his pursuit for Swiss presidency, simply because the threat of Cronoss and The Others was too prevalent. Chosen by the coalition whose mission was to defeat all those who wishes to politically take-over Switzerland, Monsieur Guillontine was supported by the Swiss Peace Party, Anti-Imperialist Movement, Swiss Liberal Party, Swiss Reform Coalition, Swiss Freedom Party, and the Swiss People's Party. Following Congress elections, Monsieur Guillontine began campaigning with a manifesto which emphasized his theme, Reform Switzerland. On election day, Monsieur Guillontine had an early lead over The Others' candidate, AlexZoar. By the end of the day, Monsieur Guillontine overwhelmingly won by a landslide. The official results were Monsieur Guillontine with 72 votes, and AlexZoar with 25 votes, which meant that Monsieur Guillontine secured an unbelievable 70.59% of Switzerland's voters.

43rd President of Switzerland

As soon as Monsieur Guillontine was elected as Switzerland's newest President in November 2012, he wasted no time in initiating his reforms. Unfortunately, that is all that was noted by the historians during this time. It seems as though the rest of the records of Monsieur Guillontine's presidency were lost while the Swiss government and its people migrated to New Switzerland in Alberta, located in North America.

Rebirth of Guillotinism

In November 2013, Monsieur Guillontine once again returned to serve the Swiss people; and with him, he revived the Guillotinist Guild, and with it, the holy religion of Guillotinism. As Monsieur Guillontine began reaching out to the very few Guillotinists who remained, he found much passion from his disciples to further spread his holy teachings. Within days, Guillotinism was reborn; the movement exponentially grew, with new followers from all corners of the world. Guillotinism was finally reborn.

Quickly involving himself in the Swiss community, Monsieur Guillontine learned that the Swiss had relocated to Alberta, Canada, through a successful airstrike and treaty with the Canadians. However, Monsieur Guillontine knew that the Swiss could not remain in Alberta forever; eventually, they would need to return to their homeland in Europe. After being elected as Congressman that very month, Monsieur Guillontine knew that it was time for him to take charge and restore political participation and activity within the Swiss community, a community that was now, for the most part, inactive and disconnected with the rest of the world. And so, Monsieur Guillontine made preparations to run for Country President.

December 2013 Presidency

Monsieur Guillontine's Campaign Banner

Campaigning for Presidency

During the month of November 2013, although Monsieur Guillontine had just recently involved himself in the Swiss community once more, he realized that Switzerland desperately needed a pragmatic, charismatic leader to lead the nation forward. At this time, the Swiss community was greatly divided over petty conflicts; in addition, Switzerland had just lost its land in Canada due to Slovenia's dirty tactics. Switzerland, once again, found itself homeless, its people without freedom. Monsieur Guillontine decided it was time for change. He began preparations for his candidacy for President of Switzerland. In this presidential election, Monsieur Guillontine only had to campaign against a relatively well-known Swiss citizen, Dan/naD Wilshire. Dan/naD Wilshire was known for constantly moving around the eWorld; and, because of his inconsistency with citizenship, he was not necessarily the ideal candidate for most Swiss citizens at this time. Monsieur Guillontine was supported by the Guillotinist Guild, Swiss Federation, Swiss People's Party, and Advance. In contrast, Monsieur Guillontine's opponent, Dan/naD Wilshire, only had the support of one party: the Swiss Freedom Party. Following Congress elections, Monsieur Guillontine began campaigning with a manifesto which emphasized his theme, Revive Our Republic. On election day, Monsieur Guillontine had a consistent lead over the Swiss Freedom Party's candidate, Dan/naD Wilshire. By the end of the day, Monsieur Guillontine overwhelmingly won by a landslide. The official results were Monsieur Guillontine with 44 votes, and Dan/naD Wilshire with 20 votes, which meant that Monsieur Guillontine secured an unbelievable 68.75% of Switzerland's voters.

54th President of Switzerland

During Monsieur Guillontine's 4th time as President of Switzerland, the nation made great strides, considerably historic strides. First of all, Monsieur Guillontine was able to align Switzerland with Croatia and Italy, who were both simultaneously fighting Slovenia. The timing was perfect for the Swiss community to reclaim their homeland; and so, under Monsieur Guillontine's leadership, they did. Shortly after a week, Monsieur Guillontine was able to secure all of Switzerland four original regions once more. In addition, Switzerland's relationship with the international community was strengthened, especially with its neighbors such as Italy, France, and Croatia. Thus, Switzerland was able to enjoy a successful Congressional election where many Swiss citizens were able to participate in, accordingly.

Additionally, Monsieur Guillontine also increased Switzerland's activity greatly. Monsieur Guillontine revived the official Swiss forum, creating a completely new, clean, and re-organized forum. On this new forum, countless discussions were created, involving much of the Swiss community. On this forum, Monsieur Guillontine also instituted a new and improved immigration system that ensured transparency between Congress and the Swiss citizens. This new immigration system included extensive investigations, Congress discussions, as well as Congress voting on all citizenship applicants; and so, by doing so, Switzerland's national security was greatly protected under Monsieur Guillontine's new immigration system.

January 2014 Presidency

Campaigning for Presidency

After a successful month, Monsieur Guillontine decided to run for President again. Dan/naD Wilshire decided to campaign against Monsieur Guillontine once more, but similar to the last election, he simply did not receive as much support as Monsieur Guillontine had. Monsieur Guillontine campaigned with a manifesto which promoted his theme, Embrace Our Future. On election day, Monsieur Guillontine had an early lead over the Swiss Freedom Party's candidate, Dan/naD Wilshire. By the end of the day, Monsieur Guillontine secured the necessary vote of confidence from Swiss citizens to serve another term as President. The official results were Monsieur Guillontine with 33 votes, and Dan/naD Wilshire with 21 votes, which meant that Monsieur Guillontine received 61.11% of Switzerland's voters.

Another Term as President of the Switzerland

Unfortunately, much of the Swiss records were lost due to Monsieur Guillontine's clumsy secretary. It is difficult for many to remember what exactly happened during Monsieur Guillontine's term as President, besides the fact that he was always extremely stressed due to how much hard work he put into building a stronger Switzerland. After his term, Monsieur Guillontine took a nice long vacation in a small log cabin in France's southern countryside. He remained there for a year... until he once more returned in January 2015.

Déjà vu

On January 1st, 2015, Monsieur Guillontine fially returned after being inactive for a year. Immediately, Monsieur Guillontine resurrected Guillotinism and the Guillotinist Guild. And just like that - indeed, déjà vu - Guillotinism was reborn, attracting new followers far and near.

In terms of his involvement in the community, Root's Secretary-General, Walensk immediately heard of Monsieur Guillontine's return, and requested that he serve as the Deputy Secretary-General of Root; more than happy to serve his country's aliance, Monsieur Guillontine accepted this job offer and went to work right away, beginning with efforts to lobby for Italy's participation in the alliance as a potential full-fledged member. Unfortunately, to no avail, the Italian congress rejected the offer, afraid that it would be more of a disadvantage than advantage to work with Root. Around the same time, however, Monsieur Guillontine was working on a new project: a Lithuanian-Romanian Non-Aggression Pact. Lithuania, one of Root's founding members was engaged in a destructive war with their neighbors, Romania. Under the guidance of Monsieur Guillontine, peace-talks were initiated, with the aims of securing and maintaining an environment of peace and respect.

As for domestically, Switzerland's President for the month of January, Joseph Rich, requested Monsieur Guillontine's leadership as Switzerland's Minister of Foreign Affairs. Known for his diplomatic talent, Monsieur Guillontine had a difficult task - yet one that he was very familiar with - to overcome: negotiating with the Slovenians for freedom. At this time, Monsieur Guillontine's old friend, Colonel Bruce, was serving as Slovenia's president. As some who has dealt with Monsieur Guillontine on Swiss-Slovenian relations in the past, Monsieur Guillontine was optimistic in regards to a long-term solution. However, Colonel Bruce was initially reluctant to engage in any peace talks with the Swiss because of the prior month's hostile relationship between the two nations. Yet, Monsieur Guillontine was patient; he waited for a week to reiterate the importance of long-term peace between Switzerland and Slovenia. Eventually, Colonel Bruce accepted Monsieur Guillontine's sincerity, and agreed to peace talks. After many discussions, Monsieur Guillontine authored The Olive Branch Treaty, which guaranteed Switzerland's liberation of Graubunden in return for a Swiss work tax increase to 10%. Indeed, Monsieur Guillontine had just recently re-joined the community, yet he was already able to provide the Swiss people with a much-needed Congress, stable economy, and access to a strengthened population through re-opened immigration.
