Dan Wilcox begun his micronational career in late 2007 after he saw How to Start Your Own Country. He recruited his friends as citizens, some of whom went on to become politicans. This is mostly still in place today. Back then, Dan and his friends were only about 9 years old but Dan thought that they were mature enough to lead a micronation. As a result, Afondale was stimulationist at first, becoming more realistic in its later years. The creation of Afondale resulted in a copycat movement at his school. Dan expressed discontent but later became involved one of the countries, the Furzey Island Republic. Afondale entered inactivity in late 2010 due to lack of interest. However there was some activity, such as the incorporation of Ahrz into Afondale. In October 2013, Dan and Prime Minister Zack Jeff revived Afondale with new citizens and a greater web presence.
Heir to the throne
There is currently no heir to the throne due to his cousin Kieran ruling himself out of the succession. If Dan abdicates now, Afondale will have to be dissolved unless there is a change in legislation.
Dan's political views are considered by himself to be left-wing, although he thinks a Capitalist economy is essential for a developed country, where it be macro or micro, but there should be restrictions on monopolies so that small businesses aren't driven out by large multinationals. In Micropolitics, Dan believes that micronationalists should be professional and shouldn't declare cyberwars each other. He also thinks that they shouldn't change their government or micronation very often.
Scotan Political Career
Dan is also active in Scotan politics. In January 2014 he unofficially joined the Scotan Liberal Democrats, and took over leadership on 1 March 2014 after the previous leader, Shane Cahill, resigned in February. He stood in the 2014 presidential election as the Liberal Democratic candidate, and came third after Jack Booth of Scotan Labour and William McGuire of the SNIP. He currently represents the West Brownsea constituency in the Studland Islands colony.
