Micronational Career

Stigistan

Lawson became a citizen the newly-formed Kingdom of Stigistan on 17 October 2008, after being asked by Joe Foxon to join. He was appointed the office of President, and later became Vice President. He resigned, days before the scheduled 2009 Stigistan Elections, and formed the Imperial Republic of Murrayfield.

Murrayfield and Wyke

In January 2009, the Imperial Republic of Murrayfield was formed, with Lawson taking the post of Emperor. Joe Foxon originally refused to recognise Murrayfield's claims, believing that Lawson's resignation was illegal. In May 2009, Lawson staged a Revolution, turning Murrayfield into a Socialist Republic. In June 2009, he asked the inactive Danburnia to merge with Murrayfield and Daniel Blackburn agreed to the request. From September 2009, Joe Foxon attempted to merge Barrington with Murrayfield to form the Kingdom of Wyke, which would be ruled jointly by Lawson and Foxon. He held a referendum on the merge, which originally passed, but was declared illegal because of 'vote rigging and fraud'. It took until June 2010 for the merge to be suggested again, which passed the referendum and formed the Republic of Wyke. Lawson became President of the new nation, leading it up to the election. He formed the Social Democrat Party, which won the July 2010 Election with a majority of one seat.
