Marka Berjan Mejakhansk, Earl of Strothlommond, also known as Lord Strothlommond (Irish: Marcas O'Miadhachain; born January 2nd 1990) is a Nemkhav-St.Charlian politician and retired military officer, currently the Lieutenant Governor of the St.Charlian Federation of Nemkhavia and the General Secretary of the National Party of St.Charlie.

Widely accepted as the Founding Father of Nemkhavia, he has been the leader of the Nemkhav people since July 2009 and has been the head of the various Nemkhav States that have existed throughout history. Beginning as the original founder of the Imperial Republic of Nemkhavia in 2009, he has come to hold a firm place in the affairs of the MicroWiki Community.

Mejakhansk has been a mediating voice in micronational affairs for some time, often providing knowledge that he has gained through his extensive studies at third level in Universities in Ireland and in Germany. He has written many works critiquing society, both micro and macro, and is a staunch human rights supporter.

His political leanings are towards the left, and he has been a part of various left-wing political parties throughout his micronational time, including the Nemkhav People's Party, the League of Communists of Nemkhavia and the League of Liberal Leftists, the ruling party of the now-defunt Socialist Union. In recent years, in a trend more towards the centre right, he became a member of the National Party of St.Charlie.

In mid 2010, Mejakhansk was the centre of some controversy when it was discovered that all Nemkhav States that existed after the Imperial Republic were, as he put it, 'fantasy nations'. This came following the Dresner Revelations, and was met with mixed opinions in the community as a whole.

Mejakhansk's military career is also something of note, having served in both macro and micro-national armies. He was instrumental in the reforms of the A1 Defence Force when he served as its third General Officer Commanding. The ranks he has gained ovetime include General, Field Marshal and Lieutenant General, among others. He chooses to use the final title from his time in the A1 Defence Force as his title in military retirement.

History

Mejakhansk was born in January 1990, in the Irish capital city of Dublin. During his schooling from 1995 to 2009, he showed promise in leadership and had a talent for organising those around him into effective groups. He was variously the head of teams and clubs, including leading an under-dog team to a shock victory during his secondary school time.

At the age of 17, Mejakhansk enlisted in the Irish Reserve Defence Forces, becoming a specialist in military communications. He was trained by the military in various military tactics and methods of signalling and this time would shape his later life. After a time in the military, Mejakhansk was honourably discharged from the RDF on medical grounds but he maintained his education in all-things radio related.

In July 2009, a year after he had begun his studies at third level, Mejakhansk came across the MicroWiki Community quite by accident. As it happened, he had been planning to create a wiki page where people could create their own nations and carry out diplomacy thus. To his surprise, one had already been made and he joined with his newly formed nation on July 31st 2009.

In the community, Mejakhansk was relatively unknown for quite some time. He carried out the affairs of his nation and kept a quiet observation on micronational affairs. Nemkhavia gradually became known, when Mejakhansk first formed a friendship with the then-leader of the Slinky Empyre, Kyng Fyrst. Towards the end of 2009, Mejakhansk came more to fore when he began what would be a long and controversial partnership with the person then known as Mark Dresner. Dresner's nation, Pristinia, became a part of Mejakhansk's left-wing Socialist Federal Republic of Nemkhavia and Autonomous President Dresner and President Mejakhansk became close confidants and political allies, with almost identical foreign policies.

Mejakhansk became known as the more reserved and patient partner in relation to the sometimes brash and outspoken Dresner. At several points, he had to answer for the latter's mistakes and presented a calm presence. Upon the creation of the Socialist Union of Nemkhavia and Pristinia, both of them became leaders of their respective nations within an equal partnership. The usual status quo of outspoken versus calm ensured that the SUNP, for the most part, had stable relations with other nations.

When the infamous Dresner Dossier was released, Mejakhask was left in an awkward position. In one move, he pulled Nemkhavia away from the SUNP, declaring independence as the Republic of Nemkhavia and saving it from the political disaster that became of the SUNP, as Dresner formed it into the United Federation of Socialist Micronations, which was destined to collapse soon after. After much time picking up the pieces of the shattered situation, Mejakhansk eventually regained his political standing with the Community and re-founded the SFR Nemkhavia, which was to exist for quite some time.

The next major issue to cross the Nemkhav leader was the revelation that the Nemkhav States between the end of the Imperial Republic (the Nemkhav Federation)) and the SFR Nemkhavia had all been fake nations, populated by creations that were analogous to characters in a debate. Mejakhansk's political standing was absolutely shot by this revelation, due to the prior issue of fake micronations arising with Erusia and Pristinia. Fake nations were not looked on kindly and Mejakhansk answered for it.

His career in ruins, Mejakhansk decided to take the reborn, smaller Nemkhavia with him into another nation and soon began his short time as Minister of Defence of the Most Glorious People's Republic of A1. With the rank of Lieutenant General, Mejakhansk took up the position as head of the A1 Defence Forces and would hold that position until late 2010, when he decided to bring Nemkhavia back to independence. He seceded from A1 in good spirits with his fomer leaders and created the Empire of Nemkhavia, which would be the Nemkhav State that thrived until the beginning of 2011, when Mejakhansk brought his experience to one of the most recognised and respected micronations in the entire community, the Republic of Egtavia. He would eventually take part in the so called January Revolution, which brought sweeping changes to Egtavia and returned it to higher levels of activity.

In mid 2011, Mejakhansk founded the Second Nemkhav Federation, ruling as its first President.

Interests

Mejakhansk is a keen historian, being well versed in 20th century history. He has a very strong interest in military history and the art of military doctrine. Among the classics of military verse in his possession are Von Clausewitz's On War, and Guerilla Warfare by Ernesto 'Che' Guevara. He has studied history at third level, becoming well versed in modern history up to and including the Falklands War and the fall of the Soviet Union. He has studied history in both Ireland and Germany, under the instruction of highly qualified professors.

Militaria forms a huge part of Mejakhansk's interest. He has a large collection of medals documents from both World Wars.

He is also a keen writer, and is has been carrying out long-term research into so-called "Micronational Superpowers". Among his works to date are What you think you know - A social documentary, and Salvation from within - The Partisans of Yugoslavia

Personal life

Mejakhansk lives in Nemkhavia's capital city, Astor Impora, where he carries out his day to day work for the Federation. He spends most of his time studying journalism at a third level institute. He is in a long-term relationship with his partner Roseanne, Countess of Strothlommond.

Mejakhansk has competent German and Irish as well as his English, honed during a year spent living in Dresden, Germany.

Political beliefs

The political beliefs held by Mejakhnask have moved from staunch socialism to moderate conservatism. During the heyday of the left, Mejakhansk was an outspoken opponent of monarchism and a proponent of central planning in government. In the modern day, the once-King was a member of Nemkhavia's Conservative Party, before returning to the left with the rise of the Democratic Revolutionary Front and the Union of Nemkhav Communists. He firmly believes in the right of peoples to self-determination and the curbing of Government power where possible. He was a strong supporter of States' Rights within Nemkhavia.

Awards and decorations

Mejakhansk has been made a Knight of the Order of the Chevron (FCP), which entitles him to the use of 'Sir' before his name. He declined to use the title in mid 2010 following the Pristinian Disaster. In 2011, he was again made Knight Grand Cross of the Order of the Chevron, this time keeping it as of yet.

On 18 September 2010, the then Emperor appointed Mejakhansk a Knight Commander of the Austenasian Order.

Views

Terrorism

Terrorism is never the answer. Slaughter is never the answer. There are other ways to have arguments worked out. When pen and paper are replaced with bomb and handgun, all hopes for a peaceful solution disappear

—Mejakhansk, speaking while Chairman of the Settlement Council

Persecution

No man has the right to stand over another. All men and women are free and equal. No religious group, political party or ethnic minority is subordinate to any other. We are Nemkhavs. This we hold dear, we must not forget our duty to the other peoples of this world. Take the hand of the downtrodden, bring them up to you. Equality is perfection
