Leaders of Arachis Hypogeae [WIP]

{PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A MODERN/FUTURE TECH NATION WITH THE ATTITUDE OF 1920s AMERICA, A LOVE OF JAZZ, AND AN OBSESSION WITH PEANUT-BASED TECHNOLOGY}

This is our leader, Gunter Heino! He's smiling, living life, probably having another friendly chat with another great business that wants to provide for the wonderful little people of Arachis Hypogeae! He's known for cutting taxes since his election, promoting businesses, and promoting eco-friendly fuels and sciences.

He's an honest man who's utterly unaware of the corruption in his government, even going so far as to trade baseball cards with the biggest kingpins and titans of industry and crime [the two roles and aspects are basically the same here in Arachis Hypogeae]. Most of them refer to him as "adorably innocent" and "the best dumbass we could propel into office".

George Washington Carver was an under-promoted scientist who faced discrimination and ridicule based on the color of his skin. When he moved to Arachis Hypogeae, he faced none of that, and was funded and supported by several major technology and bio-technology companies, creating countless inventions and technologies based upon the usage of peanuts, such as peanut allergy vaccines, peanut lotions and creams, and even artificially-grown, healthy, and tasty meat, based on plant proteins derived from, you guessed it, peanuts!

He's smart, capable, and in charge of the Department of Scientific Discovery. Were he to ever leave his work and enter politics, he would easily spot the rampant corruption that the incompetent Gunter Heino has missed. But alas, he's too busy advancing the boundaries of peanut-based technology. God bless this glorious, single-minded engine of progress.

Gordon Cheffer is the co-head of the Department of Foreign Affairs, and functions as an advisor on foreign policy, as well as head diplomat. He is unaware of the corruption in his government.

Image
Graham Benford is the second co-head of the Department of Foreign Affairs. Unlike Gordon Cheffer, Benford is entirely in the pocket of several companies, and is part of the corruption in the Arachis Hypogaean government.

Ethana Stort is the head the Arachis Hypogaean Military, while not corrupt, she does take Arachis Hypogaea's unique private secotr and their influence upon the government into account. She is cheerful, blunt, and brilliant, and great at improvising.
