Julia Larsten is the speaker of the Riiksratte and leader of the Moderate Party of Deltia.
Larsten was born on July 23, 1989 to a Deltian businessman and a British lawyer. She grew up mainly in London, and lived there until age 12, when her parents moved to Deltia. Her dad got into politics and her mom developed a drinking problem. She became interested in politics after reading one book on it then read more on politics, which she soon got into, contrary to her emotionally distant parents’ wishes. She graduated at 17 and went into Columbia University in 2006.
During college, she was pretty much the average student, getting good grades, going to parties, developing small shoplifting, drinking , promiscuity and drug problems, which are all there to this day, she’s pretty much the average Deltian minus the shoplifting part Immediately after college, she started a medium sized tech company mainly financed by government bailouts. She met the leader of the PRP in 2017, and they dated for about a year. Weiss and her later dated, but broke up after 6 months [background=black] though they evidently still have feelings for each other as shown how unhappy Larsten was wen Weiss got engaged (the engagement failed, she was secretly overjoyed). She soon ran for election. She won the seat of Warzau-Harszidstie. She was elected speaker in 2018.
Reign and Ideology
Her period as speaker has been quite eventful, with the efforts against gerrymandering and the banning of states censoring the media are a few of her achievements. Larsten is an ideological liberal, promoting freedom, with a sufficient amount of order and equality.
Her second term from 2020-2022 has been even more lively, as she assumed the leadership of the Moderate Party, after the death of the previous leader. She, alongside Weiss, drafted the Health Insurance Act of 2021, which allowed people to keep their private insurance, alongside bringing in a public option and controlling the prices of medical care and insurance in Deltia (The Health Insurance Act was part of Weiss's "Helping You Help Yourself" campaign).

Larsten has a shaky personal life, just like Weiss, Schelmann, Alisa and my other future characters I am plotting out rn. She has not been in a relationship up to a year, ever (neither has Weiss but we’ll get to that).
She is extremely fond of dogs, scotch and guns.
