Topher Fair, formerly known as Goku Jones, is a citizen of United Kingdom.


Rise to power in the UK

After starting eRepublik in March 2009, Goku Jones quickly became known for his controversial newspaper articles attacking the corrupt and incompetent UK establishment. This divided opinion with many older players alienated but newer players entertained, creating a platform for rapid political advancement. First being elected to Congress and then being president of the Radical Freethinkers Alliance in April, then Minister of Foreign Affairs in May.

One month before North Korea was added to eRepublik, Goku organized a political takeover from the Fires of Heaven forums which would rule the country undisputed, beating strong competition from both Something Awful forums and the PEACE alliance. This group maintained power through multiple political takeover attempts until it was first wiped off the map by Russia during World War III.

Coup and exile

After thwarting a political takeover attempt of Ireland by roadrunnerspeed and honouring the UK's treaty with Ireland, this was used as an excuse to launch a coup by those older players which Goku had previously attacked as part of his rise to power. The Minister of Finance, Arthur Wellersly, gave the treasury passwords to his old friend roadrunnerspeed who demanded Goku's removal, the abandonment of proposed military reforms and stronger support of Germany against Sweden in exchange for its return. These demands were met but much of the treasury had already been spent by roadrunnerspeed and Hassan Pearson on German battles. Supporters of this group won the next presidential elections.

Goku again started to produce controversial newspaper articles, especially objecting to the UK changing alliances, before leaving for his allies in North Korea.


Goku eventually left the UK in mid-2009 for North Korea. After Russia's conquest, he followed most of the North Koreans to Japan with hopes of one day retaking North Korea. There he founded Godzilla Party which produced many notable Presidents and Ministers. Goku himself became Minister of Education before a period of relative inactivity to concentrate on IRL.

Return to UK

Once the Godzilla movement ended, Goku returned to the UK midway through 2010. He helped in an attempted PTO of Ireland by the Bremen Clubhouse which caused Ireland to be wiped.

Returning to the UK and activity he became an army supplier because of his Q6 Weapons factory. Goku continued to attack the still corrupt and incompetent UK establishment and was constantly banned from forums and IRC channels for political purposes, eventually breaking from the UK completely to become a neutral soldier of fortune.

During this period, Goku was a party member of New-Era and a soldier in Funky Militia.
