"Hold on, I'm what now?"
- King Alejandro Désio Rámos Del Sol V, learning of his coronation in 2012
King Alejandro Désio Rámos Del Sol V is one of the two leaders of the Realization of La Paz de Los Ricos, one of the members of the Duumvirate, the head and founder of the Ricano Treangolist Party, and First Leader of the nation. He is the commander-in-chief for the government, and one of the main founders and interpreters of the Treangolist ideology, co-author of the Treangolist Charter and the Fluidity Accords, and installed the Ricano Reforms in January of 2018, and later the still-in-effect Treangolist Realization. He has currently been king for around 8 years, with his coronation in 2012 after the death of his father and abdication of his mother, the former queen.
King Alejandro V has always believed in the idea that his country should explicitly protect the idea of individuality, opposing any kind of Fascism or Obliteration, so during the failed Cancenías Revolution, he helped lead the insurrection to both overthrow the dictatorial government and to lay down the groundwork for the following Ricano governments. He is considered one of the "Restorers", a select group of present or former government officials who helped build the ideals that would fundamentally define the Ricano state. Currently, he is the ninth monarch in Ricano history, sixth in the Alejandro dynasty, and the first diarch, serving alongside King Endrijo Mezikou de Castellios in the current Treangolist Duumvirate.
King Alejandro V was born in the Gran Palacia in Alvoréɾ̣es, at the time known as Zueravena City, at around 10:00 AM, to parents Alejandro Désio Rámos Del Sol IV, former king of Los Ricos, and Queen Maria Donnás De Moráles. In his early life, Alejandro V was close to his parents, and even as a toddler, took interest in his father's position as leader of the country. The King and Queen would fight, however, over the publicity he got as a young child. His mother argued that he needed to be raised in private, so he would not be troubled as an adult, and his father arguing the attention would better forward his career in politics. As a child, Alejandro V was very interested in learning about the nation's history, and would read many books detailing the culture, politics, and other aspects of not just La Paz de Los Ricos, but other countries, such as the United States, the United Kingdom, and other "faraway lands", as he described them.
Alejandro V performed well academically, receiving high marks on his science and history assignments especially. Alejandro was fascinated by medicine, and when he was a teenager, expressed his desire to study mental health and psychology. In school, Alejandro V made a surprising amount of friends, most likely due to his royal bloodline. His mother feared that Alejandro would be hurt by other students trying to send a political message, but the only instances of bullying were scattered, unrelated incidents. Alejandro V, despite having many friends, was still an introvert, preferring to read and study science and medicine rather than attend public events or talk with his peers in school.
As Alejandro entered his late teenage years, he and his parents would become more distant. Alejandro V fought with them over his education. His father wished that Alejandro would enter politics, but he refused, on the grounds that after learning more about the throne, he realized it would be too dangerous a job, and he would much rather study psychology, as he was pursuing it passionately.
Alejandro V also took interest in playing the classical guitar, also known as the Spanish guitar, and eventually made it his hobby, trying desperately to find practice time in between public appearances and his other studies.
On April 21, 2010, he received a phone call while studying at Isra de'la Manilles University, about his father. King Alejandro IV suffered a severe intracranial hemorrhage, which left him catatonic, and unable to lead the nation. Official eventually decided that Queen Maria would have the title, as Alejandro rejected the idea of him being appointed leader. Maria's reign, however, would be stagnant, and for two years, she would not make any major moves, even as the condition of the nation worsened.
Alejandro V continued his studies at IMU, however, he was continually cast out by his peers, most being politically motivated to shun him due to his mother's failing reign, and Manille City being one of the most politically divided cities of the nation. Alejandro was mentored by one of his professors, Carlos Bevarros, who tried to motivate the young heir while he was facing continuous political criticism. A good friend of his, first-year student Amora Marezin, also continued her friendship with Alejandro, even though she was also made a target for harsh criticism for her support. Alejandro continued to lose passion in his studies, however, a began to seclude himself from anyone who did try and speak to him.
He would later reveal that while he was so reclusive, he would use his spare time to study politics more. He would read books on Ricano political succession, being bemused at the fact there was no, really fluid method of succession for heirs, and most offices would be replaced sometimes up to several years later, due to the absence of any singular, mandatory form of election process. Alejandro would eventually open up more to his professor, even though years of political isolation had made him into a quiet introvert.
On September 19th, 2012, it was revealed that Queen Maria had disappeared in the night. It is still unknown what occurred, but many sources seem to point that she eloped into the jungle that night with her love interest, only known as "Martinez", and she left a note saying she resigned the throne and a new heir would need to be selected.
In the early hours of September 22th, Alejandro V, along with Amora and Professor Bevarros, as well as a small group of other political allies, made the two-hour journey to Alvoréɾ̣es to appoint him as the king. Alejandro expressed his concerns on the plane ride, saying "The people will be outraged, and I will need to be ready." He was escorted into the city, to the Gran Palacia in secrecy, with armed contingents hiding in old buildings along the route.
When Alejandro arrived at the Gran Palacia, he did not immediately receive his coronation. Rather, he spent a week hiding in the palace with other government officials, discussing his rise to power and following legislature, and appointing armed guards at all points of the city.
On September 27th, 2012, Prince Alejandro Désio Rámos Del Sol V shed his title of "Prince" and was officially appointed Ninth King of La Paz de Los Ricos, King Alejandro Désio Rámos Del Sol V. His coronation was met with violent protests across the country. In Manille City, an unknown protester left a lit match in Alejandro's old room, starting a fire which would claim nine lives, and burn down a large portion of Isra de'la Manille University. In the streets of the capital city, a total of seven lives were ended by police forces defending Gran Palacia. In total, these people would be remember as the "Corona of Sixteen", and their memories would be soiled as figureheads against the coronation of King Alejandro Désio Rámos Del Sol V.
King Alejandro Désio Rámos Del Sol V had a tough time in his first few years as leader. Alejandro V tried to implement changes, such as reinstalling an old Spanish-Ricano coat-of-arms used by the first king of the nation in the flag, and made several attempts at forming a new currency, the paxileo, which quickly led to a surge in prices, creating an inflation.
Alejandro V was always opposed by one person. Rumános Cancenías, a known fascist and totalitarian sympathizer, would always criticize the king, buying out several slots on national television in 2013 for his child-targeting propaganda programming, the Canciones de Cancenías show, which would feed children fascist political ideals disguised in light-hearted song and dance. In response, Alejandro called Cancenías out, lashing harshly at him, and ineffectively using expletives to get his campaign across.
Having had enough, Cancenías began rallying his supporters for the revolution. It was planned mostly by Cancenías' inner circle, with hints of the revolution being sprinkled into Canciones de Cancenías, but would not officially begin until two years after Alejandro's coronation, in 2014.
On March 4, 2014, a violent revolt would begin in the south side of the capital city, Alvoréɾ̣es, led by Cancenías. A group of one hundred of his key supporters began their march from the south to the north, where the Gran Palacia is located. Along the way, the slaughtered many counter-protesters marching for Alejandro's reign, and shot at police guarding the intersections. By the time Cancenías reached the Gran Palacia, his group had grown to 203, with more people joining along the way, a total of 34 Cancenías supporters dying along the march. The 203 supporters managed to overpower the guard forces at the palace, which had not been significantly upgraded since Alejandro's coronation. After a violent resistance, a total of 58 survivors managed to enter the palace and storm into the throne room (known as the Palacia Massacre), forcing Alejandro to abdicate the throne on live television, in front of hundreds of thousands of bemused onlookers and television viewers.
Cancenías took control of office on March 6, 2014, establishing the Cancenían Dictatorship of La Paz de Los Ricos. During Cancenías' time in office, he established multiple harsh reforms, with many new laws restricting Ricano freedoms, and bringing the nation backwards in its development, as many historians say. Cancenías kept the nation in an iron grip, keeping the people in check with public floggings, restriction of food and water, and censorship of old Alejandro Dynasty media and other forms of silencing.
As Cancenías was in power, Alejandro was forming an insurrection. On August 13, 2015, Alejandro and a group of approximately 610 supporters retook the city of Alvoréɾ̣es, and flooded Gran Palacia, in the Restoration, (hence him being part of the Restorers) restoring power in Alejandro's hands. Cancenías was later found dead, and it is assumed he was shot by a Restoration supporter.
On August 16, his birthday, Alejandro Désio Rámos Del Sol V was reinstated as king of La Paz de Los Ricos, and his reign has endured to today.
This proposal was intended to provide more representation to individual provinces, who were vying to have a say in the laws made for them. In this proposal, the king and central government diminished their own power slightly in order to giver the provinces more ability to create and ratify laws.
Affectionately called the "Beta Version" of the nation's modern reforms, these reforms established the groundwork for Ricano laws, and eventual Treangolist policies. They laid out the citizen's Basic and Extended Rights. Basic Rights were natural human rights, such as the right to food, water, and shelter, among other things, while Extended Rights were more developed sets of rights, beyond human basic needs, such as freedom of speech, freedom of press, freedom of media, and other similar rights. It also established that the Kings' offices would be named the "Duumvirate". Also, Alejandro himself personally changed the demonym from "Los Rican" to "Ricano", met with a large amount of support. This was the historic coronation of King Endrijo Mezikou de Castellios, as the Royal Offices was divided into two powers, effectively changing the monarchy to a new diarchy.
The Treangolist Realization, affectionately named the "Alpha Version" of the modern reforms, is the current political ideology of La Paz de Los Ricos, and is based off of the previous ideas in the Ricano Reforms. This lays out the concept that the nation is effectively a triangle, made up of three sides: the State, the Public, and the Self, and also firmly establishes the Right to Individuality.

King Alejandro does not have a spouse or children, but has since gained much national support due to his sweeping reforms. Currently, the King lives in Gran Palacia, along with his diarch, King Endrijo Mezikou de Castellios, in separate bedrooms, and other staff.
Alejandro is an only child, so he has often referred to King Endrijo as almost like a brother. Alejandro also considers himself an orphan, due to his father's death and his mother's abandonment, much to the dismay of the Prime Minister.
Alejandro enjoys reading, and has become more social than in his youth and early days of coronation. He makes it a priority to actively interact his citizens, scheduling walks every week, talking with the people out on the city. Alejandro is fond of collecting antiques, and his most prized collectible is an old wooden clock, crafted around the early nineteenth century, that sits on his desk. Alejandro has also continue with his interest in classical guitar, and at the insistence of King Endrijo, has also taken up drumming.
Although La Paz de Los Ricos does not officially recognize it as a sovereign nation, King Alejandro V has expressed interest in Sealand, and plans on purchasing a Sealand flag.
The king's full name is Alejandro Désio Rámos Del Sol V. "Del Sol" means "Of the Sun", so Alejandro has been referred to as "the Sun King"
Alejandro lists his greatest achievement as being the founder of Treangolism, saying he is proud to have helped author the Charter for his people.
“It matters more what deeds were done rather than the recognition you get.”
“Let it be known, that on this day [June 13, 2018], Treangolism shall triumph over La Paz de Los Ricos, and one day, over the world!”
