As a politician of Brazil, he's the most elected congressman and with the largest number of votes in Brazilian history. Known as the duck of Brazil, he is constantly using different duck references within the game.
Gulitiwi is a Brazilian citizen born in the southeast region on June 22nd, 2008, day 215 of the New World. Gulitiwi found the game on a big Brazilian forum known as VT, invited by Beta version of eRepublik you were required to publish your résumé in wait ‘til you have received a job proposal by the employer. He wrote what his fellow VT Forum members recommended, “I work every day with 100% wellness”, and waited for his very first job.. He first saw the advertisement of the game in May but didn't want to join the game alone and waited until his friend accepted his invitation to join this unknown world. In the
V1 and Bugs
On October 14th, 2008, eRepublik launched V1, replacing the beta version of the game. After the launch of V1, Gulitiwi slowly started his hibernation.
At the beginning of the new version, the game suffered with endless instability, items disappearing and some boring features, such as Trivia, which made Gulitiwi's journey began to slowly end. At the first few days, he bought food to keep his account alive, but a few weeks later he completely stopped logging in the game. His old friends also left the game at that time.
After his long period of inactivity, on May 7th of 2009, Gulitiwi received an email from eRepublik warning about his imminent death. At first, he didn't pay much attention as he had no intention of returning to the game.
On May 15th of 2009, Gulitiwi logged in the game for the first time in almost five months, however, took a few weeks before fully returning to the game and get together with the whole and some new eBrazilian social places: MSN ChatGroup, Erepublik Brazil forums and IRC channels.
Usually known as Guli or Duck, he was always active on IRC and forums of the game. Guli’s also inherited the MSN Chatgroup of eBrazil in 2009, managing over 800 members until the end of the platform in 2013.
Being the Social Minister for two months in a row in 2010 and managed to answer over 50 daily messages helping new players during this time.
He’s the current owner of the Brazilian forums, as well as the co-owner of the official Brazilian Discord channel.
Gulitiwi is known for making articles with prizes or giveaways. He created his newspaper at a time it was still free, a couple weeks after registering on the game, formerly named eWorld News!. A few months later he wanted to change his newspaper name to eDuck News!, but had no success, as eRepublik stopped accepting special character for newspaper names, obliging him to use eDuck News instead.
Although he became a successful journalist, it took several weeks before publishing his first article, on the day 277 (August 23rd of 2008) of the New World.
During the launch of Erepublik Rising he created many tutorials to help Brazilian citizens get used to the new features, some of them reaching the most voted articles of the world.
All his articles have reached Top 5 of Brazil, with some of them reaching Top 5 of the world.
A few days after registering to the game, Gulitiwi joined the party Partido Republicano Brasileiro, but never interacted with its members. After his long-lasting hibernation period ended, his party had already become Uniao Brasileira.
In May of 2009, approximately day 528 of the new world, Gulitiwi started to interact with his party members, especially Flausino, Gahnkaz and Nosrial Olem, whom, at that time, became some of his best friends in the game. Although he was already familiar with his party members, his most first and most important interaction with the Political module started a month later, on July of 2009, due to Poland trying to take over Brazil.
When Guli returned to the game, his former party Partido Republicano Brasileiro, had become Uniao Brasileira and Gulitiwi was one of its oldest members. At that time, the older member you were, the first you would be in the party member list, meaning Gulitiwi was among the top 3 of oldest members still alive in the party.
Uniao Brasileira was known among older players as a way too young party, with many of its members not active in the main Politics and barely electing any congressmen at that time. The party was often seemed as useless among the Brazil Elite because the lack of interaction with the major active parties and mostly doing bad opposition at that time, which changed after Poland take over trial.
A month after the takeover, on the day 634 of the new world, Gulitiwi was elected as the party president and started to interact deeper with Brazilian politics and gather more members to his party. After that event, he started to coordinate his party elections every month, managing to elect most congressmen of the party history.
Around January of 2010, Gulitiwi started to get tired with the politics and created his party Uniao do Guli.
A group of friends, well-known players of Brazil, that were all tired of the repetition in national politics, worked for months to build the foundations of O.D.I.N., a party that would shake Brazilian politics with its roleplay and elect most presidents of the Brazilian history. The party was officially founded on the day 920 of the New World by , , Gulitiwi, Hugan, Jazar, , Marco Polo, , and .
Poland takeover of Brazil
Until late 2009, there was no citizenship module in the game, meaning that anyone from any country, could vote in any election at that time.
Although that was not the first takeover attempt in Brazil, it was the largest and most well-coordinated. Polish players managed to get a party to the Top 5 of Brazil, and, at some point, changed its name to Uniao Brasileira, his own party, who had to temporarily change its name to Real Uniao Brasileira, to avoid misinformed members of voting in the wrong party.
Gulitiwi didn’t want to join politics because he was afraid it would take away his free time, but Flausino constantly asked his support, which made him agree later, becoming one of the official candidates of the party during the anti-takeover act.
Gulitiwi helped to coordinate votes to every Brazilian party until day change. During the beginning of the election, Poland managed to have over 50% of the possibly elected candidates. However, with the help of many allied and some just supportive countries, the hard work was rewarded with just a dozen of Polish players being elected and his first Congressman medal.

Guli avoided the military module during his first weeks on the game, because, although battles were rare, the military module was devastating, destroying not just countries participating in wars, but also damaging the players due to the difficulty to recover wellness (also known as health nowadays), and the way low health points directly affected and greatly decreased the production of goods.
Whenwere introduced to the game, Guli avoided using it for the first few of months, even though he was one of the top strength of the world at that time, thinking it was a waste of gold to spend any gold and effort on the Military Module, hardly he knew what was about to come.
Gulitiwi started to avoid even more military groups when uniformized avatars started to get even larger than the player’s avatar, sometimes taking up to 50% of the whole avatar. The only time he tried to join a military group was when the co-founder of CAT,invited him to be one of the first 10 members of a new category of his Military Group – , a group of some of the strongest players of Brazil. Gulitiwi became an official member, even being quoted on the opening article, for nearly 10 minutes, once he realized the avatar uniform was even bigger than the ones he saw before.
During the V1 times, Brazil created different divisions of national defense for both soldiers and regular players, as Gulitiwi didn’t want to use any avatar, he created his own Military avatar that is used to this day: The Ice Cream Squad.
Gulitiwi founded his Military Unit on the day 1210 of the new world, just a few weeks after the introduction of the Military Unity on the game.
The main goal of his military unit was to keep as members all known Brazilians, for either being strong, active or funny, some of the former or current deceased members in the Military Unit were: Dio Jazar, Bunaly, Gahnkaz, Hugan, Suriat, , , Ryan Cullen, , Cavalcanti, , , , , Olorum, dinossauro among many others.
Later, the group became a graveyard of old players and a friendly Military Unit that focused on players that didn’t want to join any Military Unit. The members would receive bonus weapons every week, according to the amount of kills they managed to achieve, being the only requirement to receive the weapon bonuses was to add the Ice Cream in any part of the avatar, at any desirable size.
At this point, the Military Unit had a peak of 50 active daily fighters, and, at some point, managed to get over 500 alive members.
Gulitiwi created his own economic empire and is now one of the richest eBrazilian citizens.
Guli Armas Q1
Guli Armas Q1 was the first company owned by Gulitiwi. It was created by Flausino around May of 2009, whom named it Antares Armas Q1. Since he was lacking time to manage it, he decided to sell and put it up for sale on the market – but no one was interested. Then, he began his mission to sell it on the, now dead, eBrazilian MSN chat group for 18 Golds. Luckily, Gulitiwi was just planning to start his entrepreneur career. As an old bargainer of the eWorld, he tried to buy the company for 16 golds, but Flausino rejected the offer – “At least 18 golds, or no deal” – he said. After long conversation, he gave up and sold the company for 17 golds, a great value in the old days.
The company was a huge success in the market, with a regular daily production of 40 weapons and managing to sell the whole production. That would give Guli a daily profit of 1 gold, which was about 10% of the gross sales – way above average in the past.
Although the company was successful for months, the worst thing happened: Brazil began a long period of peaceful time, and without a single war game the Weapons Industry in the country started to collapse.
The weapons value dropped to its lowest mark and decreased from 7 BRL to 4.5 in a single week. Gulitiwi had think fast and with some efforts, managed to keep the company producing by decreasing production costs.
He wouldn’t be able to keep the company if the price kept going for new lows. The cost to produce each weapon was around 4.4 BRL at that time, and was about to reach the sales pricing, forcing him to decide to whether stop the sales and stock it or close the company for good. He decided to stock up to 500 weapons, as it wouldn’t have a big impact on his personal assets.
When the company had around 200 weapons in stock, the unluck trend worsened; Gulitiwi’s computer crashed and he was unable to buy raw materials for over 2 days. The company ran out of raw materials and all the employees resigned to not lose their hard work medals. Gulitiwi was disappointed, as at the time there was the need of 10 employees to reach maximum, which was a hard thing to do, he decided to close the company for good.
The whole stock was later used instead of sold, which helped him to achieve the General military rank and also made him start using weapons to fight for good.
Gulitiwi was known for having organizations in every country of the world. Most of them created by himself, some of them inherited from dead players. This is the list of his known organizations:
Gulitiwi is known as the duck of Brazil, mostly because he's constantly using different duck references within the game.
