Starting in September 2008 roadrunnerspeed joined during the beta stages of eRepublik. Joining with a big group of friends and establishing a company called the Federation. After starting the Borg political party they were quick to hold a mayoral office in Cardiff.
After time roadrunnerspeed joined the UK forums after advice from Squiddy. This is where he met Alan Hammond and CBall. Together they joined forces to take their companies and capital to form Zycon. Zycon is now the Defence system supplier to the UK as well as providing a variety of different industries. After the closing of some of Aurum, Zycon soon became one of the largest companies within the United Kingdom.
As a side business roadrunnerspeed also set up the Trade Federation where he filled the gap that Zycon had left. This good economic understanding earner him the place of Under-Minister of Finance along side Hassan Pesaran who was the Minister of Finance. Hassan then moved on to become the Minister of Defence leaving roadrunnerspeed to fill his place.
Together with Hassan, he created Can You Hear What I Am Saying the first UK podcast for eRepublik and the most listened to podcast in the New World. This smash hit took the UK by storm and had special guests such as the UK president JerryGFL.
In the Spectrum political party elections on May 2010, three candidates put themselves forward, Abedecian, roadrunnerspeed and temujin94. Despite no manifesto, roadrunnerspeed won by a majority over the second by over double the votes.
