"Fascist and imperialist control must not spread to Aressna and our comrades in Leskya, we must defend the Ressians and Leskyans from 5yearsain imperialism"
- Sophia Dimitrova, in a speech to the People's Congress, marking Aressna's entrance to the Fascist War.
Sophia Cecilie Dimitrova (12 November 1950-) is a Ressian politician and the incumbent General Secretary of the Revolutionary Worker's Party of Aressna and the incumbent Chairwoman of the State Council.
Coming from a poor rural background, Dimitrova joined the Ressian United Worker's Party in 1966 (at age 16), and participated in the Ressian Revolution as a guerrilla. She became dedicated to improving Ressian agriculture as she rose through the ranks of the RWPA being appointed by Ludwik Jagoda to the position of People's Commissar for Agriculture (now Minister for Agriculture), then (for 25 years) holding the role of Chairwoman of the Central Committee until the General Secretary and Premier elections of 2017 saw her into her current role.
Born into a poor agricultural family, Dimitrova worked as a farm-hand, which paid very little, with the threat of abuse from her employer omnipresent. She watched her fellow employees and her parents killed by pro-Monarchist forces during a riot, prompting her to join the Ressian People's Revolutionary Army (RPRA). After the success of the Ressian Revolution, she took her first experience of education, completing a Master's in Agriculture, Economics and Politics. Subsequently, she became a Deputy of the newly formed Supreme Soviet (Now the People's Congress), and soon became a close colleague to Jaromir Bucharin, who shared a common goal for rural advancements and agricultural prominence in Ressian poltics. Two years after his tragic death, she was appointed People's Commissar for Agriculture. She became increasingly popular within the Party, due to her reforms in Ressian agricultural advancements of sustainability, effectiveness and influence in the economy. She rose to the position of Chairwoman of the Central Committee in the early 90's, and stayed in that position until her election as General Secretary and Premier in late 2017.
Dimitrova's main goal as Premier has been to increase relations with Leskya, boost militarization, abolish anti-progressive and conservative laws, and boost the agricultural sector in Aressna. Her policies are seen as progressive, however she has been questioned on her motives in LGBT areas, something she is passive and possibly uncomfortable with. She has introduced Acts repealing "liberal" conscription laws, improving education and healthcare in rural Aressna, and brought about a bigger Ressian presence on the International stage. She is expected to stay as head of state for multiple terms, due to her popularity and power as a leader.
