Biography

Born to a British mother and a British father of Polish ancestry, Puchowski grew up in the United Kingdom, living in the south-east since 1997. He is currently a languages and philosophy student and an active youth politician within his local community.

Puchowski has three nationalities: British, Landashir'n and Francillian. He holds a passport from the Free Republic of Alcatraz, and is an Honorary Subject of the Empire of Austenasia. He speaks English, French, German and Francillish and understands Spanish, Italian, Dutch and Francillian. Puchowski has also been awarded an honorary Doctorate in Micronational Linguistics from the National University of Zealandia, and has held the title Marquess of Atkantia since April 2012.

Politics

Puchowski has pacifist and generally social democratic opinions in the micronational community. His comments and criticisms have been significant in bringing intermicronational conflicts and disputes to an end, and is seen to as a diplomat within the micronational sphere.

He has progressively worked on his micronational career and has worked with over 4 micronations to date. He has hosted 5 micronational diplomatic state visits and attended the 2012 PoliNation Conference in London.

Puchowski has previously performed an active, yet controversial political role in the Kingdom of Zealandia as Francillish Minister, Speaker of the Lower House and as a short period as First Minister, despite being unknowingly removed through a vote of no confidence whilst he was asleep and therefore away from the chat rooms used by the Kingdom; Puchowski declared In September 2011 his intention to step down from all roles in Zealandia "after a week of solid contemplation... no longer see[ing] it fit to remain in such a fragile and temperamental institution"[4].
