"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.

Early Life


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.

Rise in Politics


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.

Leadership


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.

Policies

  • Federation Proposal
    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.

  • Ricano Reforms
    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.

  • Treangolist Realization
    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. More may be found here.

For & Against

  • For: Free Speech, not limited to any citizen; Rehabilitative Justice, helping those who have committed a crime live better lives; Right to Individuality, each person entitled to their own beliefs and thoughts; Demilitarization; Progressivism, advancing science, technology, and medicine; Expression of Culture; National Pride; Diplomacy; Freedom of Religion, Freedom from Persecution

  • Against: Any form of Fascism, restriction of fundamental rights, or other similar examples; Restriction or Censorship of History and Media; Violence; Armed Conflict; Imperialism; Capital Punishment

Personal Information


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.

Personal Trivia

  • 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.

- Endrijo Mezikou de Castellios at his coronation.

King Endrijo Mezikou de Castellios is one of the two leaders of the Realization of La Paz de Los Ricos, one of the two members of the Duumvirate, a member of the Ricano Treangolist Party, and Second Leader of the nation. He is the second-in-command 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 assisted in the installation of the still-in-effect Treangolist Realization. He has been king for less than a year, but his Coronation Anniversary is approaching in January 29th.

King Endrijo has always been an advocate for Ricano defense, and while supports the ideas of individual freedoms, has expressed his wishes for more monitoring of the state and the expansion of the military force. While King Alejandro V has been a pacifist, Endrijo has been considered the "other half", a "yang" to the other's "yin". Endrijo wants to prioritize the military budget when discussing Ricano military spending, and has always been a de facto representative of the defense forces and police. Currently, he is the tenth monarch in Ricano history, third of the Casatellan Blood, and the second diarch, serving alongside King Alejandro Désio Rámos Del Sol V in the current Treangolist Duumvirate.

Early Life


Endrijo was born February 9, 1982 in Cɾ̣udorado, a small city and capital of the Gran Dorado Province, to parents Bernardo Castellios, and Anika Rejkya, a Croatian immigrant. His father, Bernardo, worked in local politics for the city, several times running for offices in the province, which made the family rather wealthy. Endrijo's upbringing was high class, his family having a decent-sized mansion in the city. During his youth, Endrijo was fascinated by old tales of his bloodline. His ancestors, Casatellan kings, were the original rulers of the land after it declared independence from Spain. He also was intrigued by a presumably ancient coat-of-arms hanging in their lobby, a symbol of their royal heritage. Endrijo performed average in school, receiving passable marks, and never showed much interest in his education. Rather, he wanted to pursue a path that would lead him to royalty.

As a teenager, Endrijo would be incredibly extroverted, always considered as "likable" and "friendly" by his peers. He would be known as the class clown in his school. He would receive progressively worse marks, however, as the school years passed on. He would be taken aside for one-on-one tutoring to try and raise his grades, and he did improve for a time, but he was still doing rather unwell academically.

As Endrijo grew late into his teenage years (around 15), he was coerced by his friends to try some marijuana acquired by a local dealer. Endrijo quickly became addicted, and as he admitted later, did everything he could to hide his possessions. The drug would change his personality, making him excessively violent and quick to anger. Endrijo also admitted that he was conscious of his choices, he knew what he was doing, and that felt powerless against the drug. Eventually, Endrijo switched from marijuana to prescription sleeping pills, which he found much easier to hide his addiction with, since nobody would question the supposed purpose of his "medication".

He was discovered by his father, Bernardo, however, and his family entered a massive feud. Bernardo would begin to violently berate Endrijo, Anika would begin to distance herself from both Endrijo and his father, believing she was the problem, and Endrijo became more outcast and volatile. During his late teenage years, Endrijo became more fierce and quick-tempered, and for a short time, was involved in a stint with a minor gang in western Cɾ̣udorado, participating in small fights and some minor drug dealing.

Anika eventually left the family in early 1999, when Endrijo was 17, leaving Bernardo and Endrijo alone. Bernardo eventually enrolled Endrijo into a drug help program, and over the course of the next two to three years, Endrijo eventually sobered up.

Rise in Politics


After Endrijo waned off of his addiction, he did some more research on his family line with his father, who wanted to see him pursue his goal of becoming a high-ranking politician. Endrijo pored over volumes of Ricano history over the line of succession, while his father wanted him to work in an elected position.

Endrijo had a difficult time finding a college that would accept him due to his past drug abuse, but eventually found that Universidad Dorada, his local university, would accept him under the condition that he was required to live in the selected dormitory and was subject to standard room inspection, which meant he had to move out of his father's house. Endrijo reluctantly joined the school, and during the 1999 school year, began his career in university, pursuing a degree in Political Studies. Bernardo would help his son read and analyze dozens of textbooks about the old Casatellan Royal Family, which Endrijo was convinced would give him a valid claim to the throne, and thus, allow him to lead the country.

Over the course of 1999 through 2001, Endrijo would place his focus on both his political education and his research on his bloodline. He faced increasing pressures from his classes, which proved increasingly difficult, but with help from his father, he persevered and managed to pass all of his exams so far. Bernardo was determined to assist Endrijo reach his goals in order for Endrijo to help better the nation, as Bernardo saw then ruler Alejandro IV to be "abysmal" and a "failure" with his centrist policies.

In March of 2002, Bernardo and Endrijo would attend a small party at a bar called "Más Tarde", a small establishment which many of the residents of the university and the general area attended. Bernardo and another patron would be embroiled in a strong political debate over the ethics of Alejandro IV, escalating to the point where the patron would pull a small letter opener and assault Bernardo with it. Bernardo would suffer severe injuries to his hip, and would be bedridden for most of the year. "Más Tarde" would eventually close down after a decrease in patronage following the stabbing, and the assaulter would be arrested and charged.

Endrijo wanted to stay and tend to his father's needs after his attack, but Bernardo insisted he return to the Dorada Ricana to continue his studies and achieve his degree. Endrijo and Bernardo would come to the compromise that every weekend, Endrijo would drive to be with Bernardo, and when he would be discharged, Endrijo would spend every other week with his father.

Over the next years, Bernardo would work from the hospital, analyzing the royal heritage textbooks while bedridden as Endrijo attended his classes and worked for his degree, with the two conferring over phone call ever chance they got to talk about Bernardo's findings and Endrijo's career. In December 2003, Bernardo was discharged from the hospital, under doctor's orders to participate in physical therapy, which Endrijo volunteered to perform.

In August of 2004, Endrijo would finally graduate, with a degree in Political Studies, and left Universidad Dorada Ricana to be with his father, who in his old age, became more frail and in need of attention from his son. The two would spend the majority of their time working with the information on the Casatellan family, royal succession, and Endrijo's political future, and a significant portion was also devoted to Bernardo's therapy.

Leadership


In October of 2005, Endrijo ran for Provinceur, the equivalent of an American state governor, for the province of Gran Dorado, against fellow nominee Abas Mekhona, a politician serving as Governer of Cɾ̣udorado. Endrijo would win, even though he had no prior government experience, and his campaign was significantly less funded than Mekhona's.

As Provinceur, Endrijo applied multiple new reforms that would change Cɾ̣udorado's laws on drug use, which Alejandro IV strictly opposed, and also the education systems and other policies. Being Provinceur, Endrijo did have to meet annually in Alvoréɾ̣es with the Departmenteur, meaning he would have to travel away from his father for several weeks every year.

After working as Provinceur for several years, Bernardo would find a passage in an old document of La Paz de Los Ricos which might secure a position as royalty for the nation:

"For After the Entire Years of Fighting had Passed, It Is to Note that Casatellan Royalty has Originally Secured the Place as Ruler of the New State, and Forever shall No Less than One Member of the Casatellan Family Follow the Main Government, though Changed it May Be, as A Member or Member of High Rank."

Endrijo would not use this clause to advance his career, however, as he found it untruthful, and also did not want his government position revoked for trying to use the clause.

On January 10, 2010, Bernardo would die from a particularly powerful case of pneumonia, which left Endrijo alone to deal with his government position and research. In September of 2011, Endrijo would advance to the position of Secretary of Southeast Provinces. On September 27th, 2012, King Alejandro Désio Rámos Del Sol V would be coronated as leader of Los Ricos, and Endrijo attended the coronation ceremony. Over the years, Endrijo would consider Alejandro as a close friend, and would begin conferencing with him personally over issues of the Southeastern Provinces. Endrijo would attend ceremonies and major meetings with Alejandro, further advancing their friendships.

In November through December of 2017, Alejandro would begin to implement the Ricano Reforms, and would select Endrijo to help formulate some of the main foundations of the Ricano Reforms. Endrijo would insert certain clauses to benefit what military their was in the nation, which Alejandro would dislike.

On January 29, 2018, the Ricano Reforms would be implemented, and with it, a clause which listed Endrijo as the fellow diarch in the newly created Duumvirate, with his coronation occurring on February 2, 2018, with him currently serving for about 9 months.

  • Various Military Reforms
    Over the years, Endrijo has made multiple proposals for military reforms, most of which have not been implemented, due to the majority of the Treangolist government’s officials opposed military operations. As Endrijo worked for the Treangolist government, he made multiple attempts to alter his proposals to conform more with Treangolist ideals, such as the removal of ballistic missile proposals, but this only made the government confirm very few of his proposals.

For & Against

  • For: A better military force, Medicare for all citizens, Treangolism, the Duumvirate

  • Against: The socialist economy, full demilitarization, death penalty, fascism

Personal Information


Endrijo lives a highly public life, actively talking about his life and his interests other than the government. Endrijo is a drummer, and practices daily, much to the annoyance of other government officials, and has begun tutoring Alejandro on the drums as well. Endrijo continues with his outgoing personality, and enjoys travelling around the country to meet the citizens and talking with them. Endrijo enjoys crude humor, and while knows how to opportunely use his dark and risque jokes, is also aware of when not to be crass or funny. He is known as the “dark side” of the “yin-yang” representing the Duumvirate (whereas King Alejandro V is known as the “light side”). He is very popular among the government and high-ranking circles as well, and is genuinely likes by many high-profile officials.

Personal Trivia

  • Endrijo has published several pieces of electronic music, which have largely been unnoticed next to his political background

  • Internet users have denoted that Endrijo uses far more vulgar language than the other members of the government

  • Every year, Endrijo visits his father Bernardo's grave and places a bouquet of flowers on the gravestone.
