St Krems is a two term former President of The United States of America,
Knight of the Order of the Garter
co-founder of Specialized Elite Execution Squad and the Exodus movement and currently the American Secretary of State.
For a long time St Krems was a member of a BattleField 2142 (BF2142) Clan call United Armed Forces (UAF). During this time St Krems managed to stumble upon the eRepublik site, and having nothing better to do, decided to make an account. He invited a number of his friends from UAF to join, which some of them did, but sadly to this day only Lombino remains active.
St Krems two clicked throughout the Scrabman era, though he did keep up to date with the Media and world events, even holding office as the US's Public Defender for most of this period. During the reign of Harrison Richardson, later to be revealed as Franco Krems' two clicking became erratic but then something marvelous happened, St Krems discovered that UAF were lacking in substance and decided to quit their wretched company. Suddenly having more time to devote to eRepublik he began to get involved in the Federalist Party and became a Precinct Captain, before being promoted to District Director and finally Public Relations Director, around the time when the USA was done to just Florida during the North American invasion.
Time in the Federalist Party
This was an interesting time to be a Federalist because under the Party Presidencies of Fingerguns, Captain Panther and Citizenslave the party began to finally make progress towards breaking into the top 5 of American politics, something that had not been achieved in America by a small party since the launch of V1. Around the time the Federalist broke into the top 5 St Krems resigned the post as Public Relations Director and took up the post of Director of Awesome, tasked with policing the forums and IRC and generally offering advice and help to the party where he could. This continued, with St Krems maintaining a presence in the party but mostly focusing on congress until he became Party Vice President under CrashNBurn. Half way through CrashNBurn's term he had to resign due to Real Life issues, leaving St Krems as de-facto Party president. During the ten or so days St Krems was party president he instigated minor changes to the party, such as restructuring the forums and merging two departments he never really saw the point in having separate. Once his term finished St Krems stood down from the vast majority of his Federalist responsibilities though still retains loose ties to the party.
To date St Krems has been in congress 4 times, representing the state of Idaho on every occasion. The first ever piece of legislation he ever proposed was an embargo of the UK, mostly for giggles. After his second term St Krems joined the Cactus Caucus, a group of senators who started their congressional careers on the same month, a number of which have been successful in game. Members include Sydiot, Rheinlander von Phaz, Panther and Jude Connors. His third term was also when he was appointed Congressional Whip under Speaker of The House Serendipitous though by the end of his fourth term he was effectively Deputy Speaker. St Krems had what most would call a successful congressional career and in his final term he was voted the joint best congressman of the months, along with Sydiot, by his fellow congress members.
St Krems got his start in the executive branch under the presidency of Josh Frost who gave him the job of Secretary of Citizen Affairs. At the end of his term Josh Frost is famously recorded as having told St Krems that he was a "hard worker" in reply to which St Krems controversially emoted ":3". Needless to say the relationship between the two has been on the rocks ever since. St Krems loitered about in the executive branch from then on, often in a small but important role, such as Deputy Chief of Staff, where he could help the domestic side of the government operate smoothly. Under President Harrison Richardson's second (some would say third) term he was given the role of Chief of Staff and became a Big Deal.
St Krems is attributed with co-founding the S.E.E.S. Political Party, currently the second largest party in the United States along with Joshua Patterson and Tom McDougal. JP and St Krems had flirted a bit on the eUS community forums in the XD Randum section before becoming formally acquainted in a campaign room on IRC. Needless to say this chance meeting changed their lives, and indeed the country's future irrevocably. They decided that together they would start the greatest militia the world had ever seen but since neither of them had any gold they decided to instead create a group with a common goal (and low overhead). The goal was simply to reshape America into a great image, the image of Emerick (who was MIA at the time). Tom was there as well. Once Emerick returned both JP and St Krems saw that the time was ripe to re-launch Specialized Elite Execution Squad as a political party and within 2 months of it's creation it had over 800 members and was the second largest party in the country. St Krems served on the party's Council of Elders and ran it's Congress Elections as well as its innovative intra-party communication system, which he designed.
Sadly, it turned out that Jp and Krems' boyhood hero, Emerick, wasn't actually as cool as they originally though. As the months wore on, Emerick's ego began to get in the way of the running of the party. Furthermore, the original meaning of S.E.E.S. (a way of poking fun at the game and bringing enjoyment to politics) was lost as S.E.E.S. became 'just another party' under Emerick's drive for power. Ironically, as S.E.E.S. began to focus more and more on power and integrating with the current political system to become part of the country's power structure, it began to lose members in staggering amounts and went from the second largest party to competing for the position of fourth.
Seeing the direction S.E.E.S. was going, its leadership, sans Emerick and his loyal choir boys, tried to kill the party true to their role as good citizens. Emerick fought this move and brought in new leaders to take over the roles vacated by the party elders. This happened 2 or 3 times. Finally, the founding members got so fed up with what S.E.E.S. had become that they moved to Pakistan to escape the cancer of their perverted vision.
