The Head-of-State's Profile.
Name: Nicholas Geschke.
Hair color: Black.
Eye color: Brown.
Blood Type: A.
Reign: 14 Years.
Title(s): Emperor of the Holy Geschke Empire, King of Geopolis, (Before enthroned) Crown Prince.
Style of Adress: His Imperial and Royal Majesty.
Consort: Her Highness, Empress Rachel Geschke.
Heir-apparent: Crown Princess, Abigail Geschke.
Biography: Born and raised in Geopolis, in the Geschke Empire as the youngest child of Emperor James II, Nicholas was never expected to rule. However, from a very young age, he showed a competance that outmatched that of his brothers, as well, James noted the boy had a far more compassionate and kindly demeanor than his brothers.
Given that his other children had performed well in all areas except Politics, Nicholas was also noted for his skill in diplomacy and ettiquete; a fact which made James declare the boy to be the Crown Prince. Over the course of several months, Nicholas became tutored for his role as the heir-apparent, becoming very knowledgeable on many subjects.
His father was expected to reign for another twenty or so years, but James suffered a terrible stroke on April 21st, 2004 and soon died. Young Nicholas then ascended to the throne at age 12, though he was officially the head-of-state, he was not in power until age 18.
Until that time, the ruling was kept to his mother, the dowager Empress Elaine. At the age of 18, the young Emperor took the reins of government and immediately set forth instituting significant constitutional reforms.
He instated a Royal Council and permanently established the new system of electing its members. He soon created the office of Mayor of Geopolis and created a council of elected citizens in every city to give the people more say in how they were ruled.
The Emperor also established a policy of encouraging the National Guard and Military Units to foster better relations with the community. He was also the author of two books: "Riding the Storm", a history of the Nation's Civil War, and "Just Politics", setting out his ideas for reform.
Also at age 18, the Emperor met his future wife, Rachel, who was the beautiful daughter of a nobleman. The two of them quickly became friends, as her father was a decorated member of the Emperor's court. After nearly eight years of dating and constant media attention, the two annnounced they were to be married.
The couple was married in 2002, and had their first child, Abigail, a daughter two years later.
To this day, the Emperor has ruled with wisdom, compassion and integrety.

The Geschke Dynasty
The Ancient Roman Republic had a Dictator elected who was bound by Constitutional Law. Then came a Dictator who refused to give up his power; and so was born the Empire after his death.
As of today, I have changed my Government from Absolute Monarchy to Holy Empire. My titles are now King and Emperor, as per the founding of my new Empire. I still rule one portion of the country as a King, but I rule the rest of the Provinces as an Emperor. The citizens do not object to this, as they still believe in the Divine right; so, under the watchful Grace of God, I am both a King and an Emperor.
