INTERVIEW WITH Erskiellander

Interviewer: Daunlaund

Q: How did you get into ns?

A: Well, I was reading books of Max Barry and decided to check some of his other work, and this showed up.

Q: And what ideas surfaced about your nation?

A: A free union of monarchies living as a single entity, sometimes in personal or full unions.

Q: How did you find the Universal pact?

A: I was contacted by New Wolvers, who introduced me to the pact. I knew it for about 2 months and tried to get the region I was in to construct embassies, but it went south so I decided to join the UP.

Q: What were your first imprssions?

A: At first I was really confused about the systems, but when I learnt how it was all working, I was very impressed and thought about how to invest myself in the region.

Q: When the party system came in you decided to found your own party, what was behind that?

A: Well, "Federalist" was a not-so-subtile nod to the Hamiltonian Federalist Part of Early USA, but for the party itself, it was mostly a wish to bring the UP to the forefront of the inter-regional scene.

Q: And tell me, what before through your head when you were elected delegate?

A: Well, This was my very first post in a region's administration, and I was quite proud of the party and myself.
But, I was immediatly hit by all of the backlash of the attempt to trick the election by Viv.

Q: What do you have in mind for the regions future?

A: I hope that the UP will one day be able to surpass the Large Regions and illustrate a different way to rule.

Q: And what are we going to be doing in the current?

A: Constructing a larger Embassy network could be a smart idea, but we should also aim towards expanding the region's population itself.

Q: Thanks for your time, but before you go, could you give us a message for all our readers?

A: I'd like to take a moment to thank Daunlaund, Havadar and New Wolvers for helping me, each in their way, to reach this Delegate Office. If it wasn't for them, I would not be the leader that I am now. Also, Thanks to Vivami for teaching me how to handle an electoral crisis because of his attempt of a coup d'état.
