Lily Jayne Summers began the game on 16th October 2011, after looking for a political and economical game to join, and found eRepublik. She started out very slow, and began looking for a political party to join, when Veruvia persuaded her to join ESO which worked hard for all their members and had very active members.
She began helping out with recruiting, and soon volunteered to be their recruitment officer sending PMs to new members, and explaining reasons why ESO was unique. Lily began to hardly go on eRepublik anymore for a few months from December - January mainly due to Boredom but also, as her internet was terrible. She rejoined in late January and eventually helped Roz in recruiting again, and then Rodney as his vPP.
Having served under Rodney Mckay as vPP and Recruitment manager (restoring ESO to third place in the national rankings) she has now stepped up a place for her first term as President of the ESO party, after being tempted by Rodney McKay to run.

In CP elections, Lily helped get an ESO Candidate in Betafoxtrot for the first time in months although he lost to Talon, he came 2nd place. She additionally helped increase member numbers by 23% and secure ESO into 3rd place. Overall, Lily helped reform the ESO constitution, bring more competition, and more energy to the party, she however made a few mistakes which she made sure would learn from in the future.
She re-ran for a second term, and faced no opposition winning 66.30% of the vote, a huge sign of confidence. However, reforms of the party slowed down and in the CP elections, she controversially anulled the CP elections due to evidence of cheating, which bought criticism and signs of impeachment, however she continued regardless and helped Appleby and UKRP win the CP elections, and end the domination of TUP. She also helped ESO come joint 1st in the congress results, a huge success as they were 3rd in the political rankings.
Lily then re-ran for a third term, which in ESO history had never happened before, she had a lot of criticism from valued members of ESO, that it was the time for new members to step up, she also faced a lot of opposition and candidates standing to make sure she wasn't elected and in the elections she won by a small margin (She was 4th in the elections at one point) She became the first female ESO to win 3 PP elections and the first person to win 3 successive ESO PP elections.
As her third PP term has gone up, she has helped ESO come first in congress results in electing 15 congress members (A signficiant number when ESO was 2nd by 100 votes behind TUP) and was mainly due to fantastic mobile voting of the party, and constant communication. She has also helped ESO move into 2nd place (The first time ESO has ever been in that position) which bought more criticism from TUP as ESO was now seen as the official opposition. Since then UKPP has moved back into 2nd place, but ESO not too far behind.
