ENGLAND'S HEAD OF STATE
Charlotte of the House of Hengesting (born FORENAME SURNAME; DD MM YYYY) is an English politician and former prime minister now ruling as the Lady Protector of the Kingdom of England and England’s overseas territories.
Charlotte is a very controversial figure in British and European politics at large. Many consider her a hateful tyrant while others more amicable to her ideology see her more favourably; the view put forward by state and supportive non-state media paint her as a selfless guardian of England’s sovereignty and security, tirelessly working to protect her country and see to the bright future she envisions. This view is regularly challenged by opponents abroad, especially by the English emigre population in Europe and elsewhere.
Due to her de facto status as a dictator, Charlotte and other officials within her government have been sanctioned by multiple foreign powers. She has been accused of multiple human rights abuses and has withdrawn England from international treaties and agreements that were deemed to be harmful to England’s interests; England remains a permament member of the United Nations and regularly uses its veto powers to dismiss any action aimed against it. However, it should be noted that England is more free than most other dictatorships, despite its mass deportations, land and property redistribution, persecution of minorities and political opposition, and reports of human disappearances allegedly carried out by England’s internal security agency.
Born and raised in the suburban Southeast of England, Charlotte grew up in a low income household with detached parents and 4 siblings. During her youth, she became increasingly politically aware, delving into political and philosophical literature in her free time and joining a local youth council. A number of crises, including the secession of Scotland from the United Kingdom and the annexation of Northern Ireland by the Republic of Ireland under Prime Minister Jeremy Corbyn, followed by his own assassination by ISIL, profoundly affected Charlotte’s own beliefs and led to her becoming increasingly xenophobic and authoritarian for some time. Her politically motivated activities went on hiatus for a period of time prior to university, taking a politics degree at the University of Warwickshire.
Her time in university, alongside studying and working, was spent becoming politically active in the local area and building a network of contacts with agreeable groups. She graduated from university and returned to her home county of Kent to begin making her way into mainstream politics, joining [PARTY] for a time before founding her own party, the Kentish Regionalists. The Kentish Regionalists spoke from a platform advocating more autonomy to county councils and appealed to the interests and sentimentalities of the indigenous middle to working class population. Despite some initial setbacks, she was successful in achieving seats in Kent County Council, from which she would grow her movement into more than a regional one while still trying to keep regionalism as a core component.
In [YEAR], Charlotte rebranded the Kentish Regionalists into the People’s Justice Party as she sought election to Westminster and placed herself as a contender to the incumbent Member of Parliament for her own constituency. Like its regionalist form, the PJP focused on the white working class demographic, placing itself in opposition to perceived elitists, the rich and any anti-patriotic movements and persons, including those desiring England rejoin the European Union and those involved in selling English infrastructure and essential services to foreigners. The general election of [YEAR] saw the People’s Justice Party miraculously win most of Kent, and from here the party would continue to grow, expanding manifold into other counties of similar demographics. Within two further general elections, the People’s Justice Party had taken ahold of enough seats in the House of Commons to become the primary opposition party to the Conservative and Tory Party. A snap election called by then Prime Minister David Howells bore witness to Charlotte entering Number 10 Downing Street as the new prime minister, while protests appeared nationwide.
Her appointment as prime minister was wrought with trouble as the PJP’s nationalist-populist platform alienated a significant portion of the population at the time, in particular immigrants, ethnocultural minorities and progressives, leading to multiple riots and other demonstrations against government and the PJP in particular, which were often met with pro-PJP counterdemonstrators, such as with the Second Battle of Cable Street. The shocking assassination of King William V and his family by an Islamist terrorist network, whom had also been blamed for the London Water Poisoning earlier that year, brought the People’s Justice Party to put forwards a bill permitting the prime minister to take up the position of Lord Protector alongside granting government emergency powers to deal with the crises and continued threat posed by the so called “Army of Islam”. Charlotte would declare herself Lady Protector within the year and used fine print in the Protectorate Act to sweep through new Acts that empowered the Protectorate at the expense of Parliament and judiciary.
Even before her appointment to the Protectorate by Parliament, Charlotte’s prime ministership was one of the most controversial in recent memory according to foreign and dissident media. The day she entered Downing Street with the King’s blessing to form a government, demonstrations against her proposed policies, in particular on immigration and general social policy, were carried out in multiple major cities including Manchester and London. While most were peaceful, albeit tense, more than a couple resulted in violence between anti- and pro-PJP demonstrators that had to be quelled by police. Pro-PJP celebrations happened throughout the country as many rejoiced the return of patriotic, sensible government that valued the working class and England’s identity and culture.
The discovery that a significant portion of fresh water supplied to London was contaminated resulted in a wave of anger and fear that the People’s Justice Party managed to utilise towards its own means of greater control over the political landscape of England. A live televised address to the nation was broadcast from Number 10, with Charlotte blaming an Islamist group for the attack. The Recall Act, an achievement of Charlotte’s administration that created a legal procedure for constituents to dismiss their own standing MP and hold a by-election, was enacted in several constituencies not already controlled by PJP members and more than a couple were won by the People’s Justice Party, bolstering their numbers.
The nail in the coffin for English democracy was the assassination of King William V, his wife Kate, Princess Consort, and two of their children. The national tragedy and the panic in the aftermath was soon followed by the proposal of what would become the Protectorate Act, which allowed Charlotte to take the position of England’s head of state and enact further emergency measures to “protect England, her people and all her beloved treasures,” and succeeding this was, among other happenings, crackdowns on various political and religious groups in England, forced by-elections that resulted in PJP control of those constituencies, suspension of innumerable “outdated” and “detrimental” Acts of Parliament and the passing of further legislation that all, in some ways, empowered the Protectorate and the PJP in the interest of protecting England and all that belongs to it, internally and abroad.
Currently, Charlotte’s rule can be summed up as security and freedom for the many, persecution and repression for the few. Actual liberty is in short supply within England, with any legitimate threat to the Protectorate Party and her government found abroad and often in de facto hiding from the Secret Intelligence Service. However, despite the political repression and persecution of select groups within England, everyday life is actually rather lax and citizens are able to enjoy a safe society with efficient public transportation, a booming nuclear power industry, dropping unemployment, and reliable public services among other benefits at the cost of political freedoms and certain rights of expression, assembly and speech. An average day for an average Englishman faces little to no government interference beyond monitoring and the suppression of dangerous and subversive information.
Charlotte is, according to a government defector, an “unaware tyrant” who is “completely absorbed in her own vision and is seemingly blind to the atrocities committed by her government.” Ever since she began her career in politics, she’d rode on a populist, nationalist and anti-elite platform, and this has remained the case at least in rhetoric. Displays of patriotism, her working class background, and relatively humble living has made her popular with a significant percentage of the public that aren’t otherwise negatively affected by her more dictatorial policies.
Among her priorities, what are clearly at the top include empowering England and efficiently making the most of its regional power status to the benefit of England and its allies, equalising the economy and eliminating the control of society and capital held by the wealthy, economic nationalism (outlawing foreign companies and persons to buy out English brands, properties and businesses), managing immigration and the birth rate alongside “societal & cultural guidance” to achieve a harmonious and culturally healthy society, and maintaining her power over the state and society to ensure no subversive agents can bring harm to England and/or her people, society, culture, and ambitions.
Charlotte married Edward Moore in April [YEAR]. They have two children named Morgan and Meredith, both girls. The family also owns a Staffordshire bull terrier named Monty. Shortly after her appointment as Lady Protector, she founded the House of Hengesting, consisting of herself, her husband and their children. They live at [RESIDENCE], which has been described by some as “looking more like a prison than a home," due to the site’s heavy security.
She is described as a loving mother and wife, though one that tends to change between strict and lax from time to time. Her and her family’s daily lives are very regimented and regulated, in large part to Charlotte’s own paranoia; however, when going on breaks, especially during the summer period, she allows a more relaxed approach and regularly invites family and loyal supporters in government and military to dinner at her summer home in Cornwall, also a popular tourist destination.
In private life, Charlotte is often described by others as a reserved person with a love of history, family and outdoors activities and as having a diverse taste in music. She often spends her free time in the home gym, reading, with family and/or listening to pre-2000s music. In contrast to this image, she has also been noted as a woman that’s frequently suffering from stress and bouts of anxiety, fear, and even periods of nigh-clarity to her actions. A former aide to her once said he saw her “slouched back in her chair by the window, staring off into space with tears rolling down her cheeks,” which he believed to be one of these moments.
Appearance wise, Charlotte is a relatively fit woman of average build, fair skin, 1.63 metres tall (5’3”), with greying dirty blonde hair, deep set grey-blue eyes, pianist fingers and a distinctive ridge above the brow. She has a voice that is often monotone, while clearly reflecting her native Estuary accent.
It is quite probably that Charlotte takes some kind of medication to treat stress, paranoia or some other affliction she suffers with. She has had mental breaks in the recent past, and this is what prompted her to actually get treatment.
