PrinceOfAustria was one of the most active politicians of Austria. Due to his, for Austria, high amount of recruited players, and his good politics, he can be considered one of the most influential Austrian citizens.
Prince, as he is commonly abbreviated, joined Austria on day 790, after seeing the game in the charts of some German browser game 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 career in Austrian politics.
Start of his career
Soon after Prince joined, he saw an advertisement to join the Austrian army and decided to enlist. He thought about the "Intentions of being a regiment officer" for a bit, and then decided to accept the position. Without knowing, he started his amazing career. The former MoD, Kaiser Alex, chose him to be an officer of a squad of 5, the only squad at that point. Soon after that, Austria 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 Austria and made Prince Secretary of Defence.
He did a good job, and regardless of personal differences, bobbySAURON made him MoD again after Hedera got impeached and bobby took over the country. He was also named MoD by stoneman and Rangeley, which made him 4 terms in a row as a MoD. During this stint, he founded and commanded Mobile Forces Austria.
Under stoneman, he even was named Chief of staff, which got him some important connections to Presidents of other countries and even alliances. Since 5th of May 2010, he was also responsible for the Ministry of Migration.
In his first Congress elections, he got 15 votes, the highest result of Austria ever until that point. He believed this was because at that time Austria 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 May's elections, he got unbelievable 40 votes, which was almost 25% of all votes. At that time, Austria had 230 inhabitants.
Prince realized Austria needs a baby boom, so he put a lot of effort into this. On April 17th he released and advertised (with real money) a blog on Netlog, causing Austria to gain about 150 citizens in 2 days, more coming in every day. He was on his way to get his 5th Society Builder medal. Due to a large number of babies, which he took care of, he got even more politically influential, 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 Austria, as lots of people knew they were 2 separate individuals. 3 days later the appeal commission decided to him.
Plans for the presidency
PrinceOfAustria would have high chances to win in presidential elections, so he gets asked frequently why he doesn't become a candidate. Due to his relatively short career, he thought he was not quite experienced enough in this game, but as he was very active and thus gaining experience every day, he was 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 elections, 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.
He was re-elected in January 2011.
