PrinceOfAustria was one of the most active politicians of eAustria.
Due to his, for eAustria, high amount of recruited players, and his good politics, he can be considered one of the most influencial eAustrian citizen. He also is one of the few, but increasing, RL Austrians in the government. PrinceOfAustria is the current president of Austria.
Prince, as he is commonly abbreviated, joined eAustria on day 790, after seeing the game in the charts of some german browsergame site. He started his eLife in his RL home region, Lower Austria, but then soon moved to Carinthia, as he figured he needed a hospital to survive. Within a few days of getting to know the game, he started his exceptional carreer in the eAustrian politics.
Start of his political carreer
Soon after Prince joined, he saw an advertisement to join the eAustrian army, and decided to enlist. He thought about the "Intentions of being a regiment officer"-part for a bit, and then decided to chose yes. Without knowing, he started his amazing carreer. The former MoD, Kaiser Alex, chose him to be officer of a squad of 5, the only squad at that point. Soon after that, eAustria was attacked by Croatia and Prince had to learn how to handle an army quickly. Within a few days, he was able to increase the number of members of the squad from 5 to 20, and he got some organization into the army. After Borojevic von Bonjar was impeached, Oraizan became CP of eAustria and made Prince Secretary of Defence.
When Hedera, who later turned out to be a PTO, decided to work together with Kaiser Alex and make him Vize President, the MoD job was given to the newcomer PrinceOfAustria. He did a good job, and regardless of personal differencies, bobbySAURON made him MoD again after Hedera got impeached and bobby took over the country. He was also named MoD by stoneman and recently Rangeley, which makes this his 4th term as MoD.
Under stoneman, he even was named Chief of Staff, which got him some important connections to Presidents of other countries and even alliances. Since 5.5.2010 he is also responsible for the Ministry of Migration.
In his first congress election he got 15 votes, the highest result of eAustria ever. He believed this was because at that time eAustria only had 3 regions, but in April's elections, when austria had 7 regions, he managed to get overwhelming 22 votes. His girlfriend, PrincessOfAustria, got 8 votes, which was the 2nd best result in those elections. In Mai's elections, he got unbelieveable 40 votes, which was almost 25% of all votes. At that time, Austria had 230 inhabitants.
Prince realized eAustria needs a babyboom, so he put a lot of effort in this. On April 17th he released and advertised (with rl money) a blog on Netlog, causing eAustria to gain about 150 citizen in 2 days, more coming in every day. He is on his way to get his 5th Society Builder medal. Due to his large amount of babies, who he all took care of, he got even more politically influencial, as the new generation of RL Austrians trust and follow him.
On April 28th, PrinceOfAustria was banned for creating or administrating multiple citizen accounts, and so was his girlfriend. This was a scandal in eAustria, as lots of people knew they were 2 separate individuals. ([Read his statement]) 3 days later the appeal commision decided to unban him.
Plans for presidency
PrinceOfAustria would have high chances to win in a presidency elections, so he gets asked frequently why he doesnt candidate. Due to his relatively short carreer, he thinks he is not quite experienced enough in this game, but he is very active and thus gaining experience every day, so he is planning to run soon, maybe in June, or in October.
After leaving eRepublik for a few months, he returned in November 2010 when Austria was under attack by Italy. He immediately became the candidate for the December 2010 Presidential election, he was the only candidate in the election and thus won.
He was able to get some regions back and raise some more money for the treasury.
