The Beginning

John Warbuck 1

The only known photo of John Warbuck before the rebellion.

John Warbuck was born and grew up in Chicago, Illinois, USA in a modern middle class family. He was born to loving and caring parents named, Kristina Warbuck, a school teacher and Adam Warbuck, a scientist. He had one sibling, Francis Warbuck, who died during the Beertopian struggle for independence.

John Warbuck was an intelligent child but was the typical underachiever. However, as history shows, even the underachiever can become great. Although he graduated High School, he never attended college leading him to become a bartender as soon as he hit the age of 18. As a bartender, he developed a deep appreciation for beer, and viewed it as the solution to just about anything.

John Warbuck met and fell in love with Victoria Goldstein, who he proposed marriage to. But tragedy struck when his fiance at the time was gundowned in the middle of crossfire by US Federal Agents trying to take down an "agent of corruption" who supposedly called the President a whore. She was gundowned in 2004 leading to Warbuck leading Illinois's movement to break from the United States, which had become corrupt and full of tyranny.

Leader of the Rebellion

Rebellion Rally

The First Beertopian Rebellion Rally.

In the Spring of 2005, John Warbuck began his rebellion against the United States Government. His movement was called The Beertopian Movement, and was not taken seriously at first. John Warbuck had purposefully created the movement under this name so that the government would underestimate him long enough for him to gain support. When the rebellion began to take hold throughout all of Illinois, many came to support his cause, recognizing the fact that the United States was no longer the nation it's forefathers intended it to be. With support of former high ranking US Military officers and politicians as high as the State Senate and the Senators in the US government for Illinois, John Warbuck was on his way to leadership of a new nation. The United States thought of John Warbuck as a joke but he began to gain support from Canada and Germany, who supplied aid. For months John Warbuck met with the people, and eventually, the State of Illinois declared their secession from the Union, as well as their Sovereignty as Beertopia.

By May of 2005, when the United States realised that John Warbuck, and the Beertopian Movement was more than a mere joke, it was too late. The Beertopians began to overthrow local governments but John Warbuck was not satisfied, and he spread his influence throughout Illinois, leading to their aforementioned secession from the Union. The President of the United States, John McCain, unwilling to let the United States begin to lose states, declared that "the only way the people of the State of Illinois are leaving the Union is in body bags."

But that would not stop John Warbuck. Despite many unsuccessful skirmishes, including one that resulting in the death of his only brother, Francis Warbuck, he continued the rebellion, often resorting to guerrilla tactics. The death of Francis hit John Warbuck very hard, but he kept moving forward with his movement. However, he needed a victory to raise the morale of his people, who were beginning to starve despite the aid they received from Canada and Germany, and a cold winter was approaching.

In October of 2005, the United States military had pushed John Warbuck's forced back to a town called Decatur, where he would make a four day stand. Running low on ammunition, and suffering from low morale, the Beertopian forces were forced back to a barn, which gave the Battle of the Barn it's famous name. Germany sent air support to aid John Warbuck's forces, but it would not be enough. His men were tired and starving and beginning to lose faith. It was then that he found the sledgehammer on the side of the barn.

John Warbuck proceeded to bludgeon over 150 of the Union's soldiers to death single-handedly, which resulted in the advancement of his forces and the withdrawl of the United States' military from the fight. John Warbuck held the hammer high at the end of the battle to shouts of "You can't stop the hammer! Hail to the Hammer!" which would be remembered forever in the new nation's national anthem. The hammer itself is on display in the NAS memorial museum, and a statue was erected on the spot where he held it after the battle.

The United States finally withdrew from the conflict, as they had to deal with declarations of war from China and Mexico, who felt that the United States had shown their empirical and corrupt nature through their bullying of Beertopia, and John Warbuck found himself at the head of a new nation.

World War III

When Mexico and China declared war on The United States, it sparked World War III when Britain, Italy, Russia, and France backed the United States. Germany, Canada, and Japan were drawn into the war in defense of Mexico and China, and the war went nuclear, destroying civilization and splitting the world into 30,000 tiny little countries. John Warbuck, seeing that the war would go nuclear, took all of his countrymen underground to whether the storm. After the fallout had cleared, many of the other clans and factions in the area decided to join him, forming the New Aligned States.

With the dust settling from the fallout, John Warbuck met with all of the clan and faction leaders of the area and formed the New Aligned States with democratic principles that revolved around personal freedoms and human rights. The consitution and its documents were formed and signed creating the nation on that day of August 25th, 2008 at 3:48 pm.

The Democratic Order

The next day, on August 26th, of 2008, John Warbuck's first executive act as High Chancellor was to join The Democratic Order due to their principles and values which revolved around peace and neutrality. He quickly rose through the ranks in TDO, becoming a Low Senator in only 24 days, after working as a Deputy in the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Ministry of Membership Orientation. The week after his induction into the Low Senate, John Warbuck was elected to the position of Minister of Membership Orientation.


Low Senator and Minister

John Warbuck is well known for his dedicated service to The Democratic Order , especially his work for the Ministry of Membership Orientation. His service began in the Ministry of Internal Affairs as a deputy, where he updating the Master List of nations in the alliance, bringing it up to date after a long period of neglect. He also served as deputy Minister of Membership Orientation before his elevation to the Low Senate and his election to the position of Minister of Membership Orientation.

John Warbuck completely revamped the Ministry of Membership Orientation, starting it from scratch again. He redesigned the Mentoring Program and the aid system when he served as Co-Minister of Finance while still holding the postion of Minister of Membership Orientation. He then created the AGP, which is an advanced growth program that many people argue is the reason TDO was able to gain a sanction.

John Warbuck also revamped the TDO Nation School and is the author of the majority of the guides in the newly remastered school. Just recently, he was awarded the Democratic Badge of Honor for his dedication and service to TDO. The Democratic Badge of Honor is a rarely awarded medal, and John Warbuck wears it with pride.

Today

John Warbuck has recently announced his desire to pass the torch of his work in the Ministry of Membership Orientation to someone else, as he feels that it is time for him to serve The Democratic Order in a different way so that he doesn't feel burnt out. He has begun the work of writing his memoirs from his service in the Ministry of Membership Orientation from October of 2008 until the end of May, 2009. Just recently John Warbuck was appointed to the High Senate of The Democratic Order and this was stated by the current chancellor of TDO, Rychro Anrise:

Greetings Fellow Members,

Recognizing his tireless devotion to the alliance, the High Senate has voted unanimously to elevate John Warbuck to the position of High Senator of The Democratic Order. Having joined the alliance in August of 2008, John Warbuck has made himself into a permanent fixture of the alliance. Easily one of the most recognizable people around, he has made it his mission to help out The Democratic Order to the best of his abilities, and we have no reason to doubt that he will continue to do so for as long as he's a member.

I could think of no finer man to elevate into the High Senate, and I look forward to working alongside him for the general betterment of our great alliance. For now, though, let's cut out the next eight paragraphs of me rambling on in a bizarre loop of non-thought and celebrate! Granted, since I'm the one announcing this whole thing, there isn't any alcoholic beverages to be had. But you guys can get drunk out of your minds when mgregory and dnathe4th host their own after-party party (Oh, you know it's going to happen).

Possible Bid for Minister of Defense

Currently Senator Warbuck is finishing his tenure as Minister of Membership Orientation and begins his campaign for Minister of Defense for The Democratic Order. At the current time Minister John Warbuck runs virtually unopposed for the position. On May 23rd of 2009, Minister Warbuck of NAS gave at a debate his answer to a question and at the same time his platform on which he is running:

Will you help the newer members get aid faster so that they can recoup?
I will indeed try to work with the MoG to allow nations to recoup better.

My fellow members of The Democratic Order, I have decided to run for Minister of Defense because I feel that there are ways that the Ministry can be run more effectively, and I have a track record of bringing a Ministry to new heights and increasing expectations. As I had campaigned back in late September for MoMO with the slogan "Building MoMO From the Ground Up", I find it to be ironic that I will use the same slogan again- "Building MoD from the ground up.

There are many ideas circulating about what we should do with the MoD now that we have achieved a sanction, and the possible logistical problems we will face as a result. My plan for MoD is simple- Gut it. Clean it. Build it. The best way to handle the new needs of the MoD is to create a new MoD. It is the way I approached the Ministry of Membership Orientation, and my view is that if a method works once, you use it again until it stops working.

Open 24 Hours

I will require deputies to assist me in the grand undertaking that I will embark on with you, should you choose me as your new Minister of Defense, and I will seek to have deputies from all time zones, so that the MoD can run 24 hours a day. Those deputies will be trained, retrained, and tested before they are able to take command of any situation, and I will make sure that they are held to a high standard- the same standard that I will hold myself to.

I want MoD to be efficient. I want to make sure that there are never any issues with deputies that stem from inexperience, or their not understanding what to do. Therefore, I will make sure every one of my deputies knows how to perform the task they are assigned to perform and that those tasks will be completed.

The Legionnaire Roster

I believe that our First Response System needs to be updated. My plans are to create squads in the MoD, each part of a Brigade, which will be part of a Division. This system would allow for a smoother flow of orders in the case of an emergency and more people would naturally know what to do in any given situation.

Each squad would be 3 nations large. These 3 nations would be in the same NS range, and would look after each other. If one of those nations was attacked, the other 2 squad members would be assigned to assist their buddy nation, after receiving the final ok from the MoD. This allows the three nations to coordinate and plan, and eliminates the stickiness of having to search for nations within NS ranges to assist a nation of ours at war.

In the worst case scenario, the Rank System I mentioned would be executed, with the MoD giving orders to the Divisions, who in turn pass them down to the Brigades, who in turn pass them down to the Squads. This would allow us to coordinate and respond 10 times faster in the event of total pandemonium than we are currently capable of responding.

Low NS Nations

As we all know, it is extremely difficult to provide war support to our small nations, and those nations are the most vulnerable to roguery, which presents us with a logistical issue. My solution is to create a program for nations just entering our alliance to be able to sign up for the Defensive Reserve Program. Basically, the way it works is this. A nation agrees not to grow for month long increments. They may choose the duration of their term, whether it be 1 month, 2 months, or 3 months. They will receive 9 mil for each month they serve in the program, payable upon completion of their term.

All their war expenses will be paid. They will gain valuable war experience just by handling rogues at small levels for the duration of their term, and will have a nice amount of cash coming to them for it. After their term is over, new nations would be brought into the reserve to perform the same duty of handling small nation rogues. These nations would also only attack a rouge with the permission of the MoD.

Defense Advisory Group

I will be keeping this group, but I will be limiting it's size. It is currently taking too long to make progress with the amount of people in the group, so I will be condensing the group, and will want the group to continue their work on creating MoD guides for the purpose of use by future MoDs.

Conclusion

These are my initial goals for the Ministry of Defense, and obviously, I would want to come up with more ideas after these goals have been met. The reason I am running for MoD is because I feel it needs to run more efficiently, and it needs to be fixed soon. I've fixed ministries before. I built the MoMO from the ground up. If elected, I will build the MoD from the ground up. The only thing I will need is some hard workers and your support. So, if you have a question not covered in this wall of text, please ask it. I look forward to answering it, and I hope that I can earn your vote for Minister of Defense.
