Early Life

Joseph Straatmann was born on April 28, 2009 (Day 525 of the New World). He was born in Missouri of the USA but shortly moved to Florida in order to have access to a Q5 Hospital. His first two months of playing were relatively uneventful. He tried his hand at many things, but mostly two-clicked the entire time. He had a few news articles about current and controversial happenings in the USA but none got very far. During this time, he joined the Conservative Party and talked on the US Forums on occasion.

The US Army

Right around his two month birthday, Joseph Straatmann applied to the eUS Army. He was able to skip the Training Division because of his rank in game and the time he had spent learning the game. He nevertheless struggled with Army life for the first week. He was assigned to serve under 1st Lt Video Jack of the 4th Division 3rd Platoon. After two weeks, the XO Ardez quit and Joseph Straatmann informed his superiors that he was interested in the job. He was given the job and spent a few weeks as the XO of the 4/3. It was at this time that World War III started and Joseph Straatmann spent a large portion of the war in the office of XO.

A few weeks into the war, 1st Lt Video Jack left the eUS Army after a long service to his country. He recommended that Joseph Straatmann take his place as CO and Fletcher Christian be named XO. Joseph Straatmann accepted the position and agreed with the promotion of Fletcher Christian. He finished the remainder of World War III as the CO of the 4/3. Around the time of the dissolution of PEACE, Joseph Straatmann decided that his time in the eUS Army was over and resigned. He recommended Fletcher Christian take his place and Numa be promoted to XO.


Through one of his organizations Joseph Straatmann spent about a month earning some extra gold. He used the profits to provide Q5 weapons to his friends and do small amounts of tanking in important battles, such as The Battle for Hello Kitty. He owned around ten companies.


Joseph Straatmann ended his life in Malaysia, attempting to help the country in anyway he could. One of his friends moved there early and attracted him to that small country. He worked for Petronas Oil, a Q3 Oil company which was owned by the org Sud in Azione. Joseph was a member of Democratic People's Party with whom he managed to get elected to the Congress of Malaysia in February 2010.
