The Island Nation of Balruba


The first day of the conference was uneventful. Evidence of the beginning formation of the Balruban state began to take shape as the discussion of the Legislative Branch was the prime topic of discussion. A heavy emphasis on the legislature being manned and determined by the People was considered a massive victory for populists and communists, who sought out the overbearing rights of the people versus the state. The second day of the Conference carried itself to the Judiciary and by whom the highest courts in the land would be empowered by.

Character Name: Arthur Adkins
Character Age: 36 (11 Experience)
Brief History: Born in 1911 in the hospital Saint John on Balruba to a middle-class family. His father had always been a known member of the left-leaning group of Balruban Popular Alliance, and since he was very young he accompanied his father to party meetings and started to get acquainted with the future leaders of the party. At the age of 14, he was already considered to have great skill on oratory when he made a speech in the honor of the patriarch of the organization Gregg Remington, the founder and considered an intellectual by many in Balruba. He was educated in Balruba but later travelled to the United Kingdom to get a degree on history.

When he returned to Balruba and saw the effects of the Great Depression, it helped cement the idea that capitalism was an economic system that would sooner or later be phased out by communism. At the age of 28, he was sent to the United Kingdom as part of the conscription system put in place by colonial authorities. His fight would lead him to the beaches of Dunkirk, where he suffered heavy injuries during a Luftwaffe bombing run. He would then be considered unfit for service due to a bad leg that didn't allow him to perform well. He returned in 1941 to Balruba and proceed to continue his political career in the small island under the BPA (Balruban Popular Alliance). He quickly joined the ranks in the small island who wished for an independent Balruba and when the war began in earnest, he made job by working as a secretary renowned for his capacity of organization, although, his oratory was just as well regarded in the national assembly. Now that the war is over, he hopes to propel his left-leaning ideas into reality.
