Andrew Franson was born on 4 November 2005 in Joliet, Illinois. He later moved to a town nearby in Illinois after his parents purchased a house on 7 November. His life began exceptionally well, not only was he in a good home but was also healthy.
Ages 2 - 6
Not much is known about Andrew during this time. His parents state that Andrew began to walk at age 2 to "copy everyone else" and that he had no assistance in doing so. His first word is believed to be "Disney" because of his families love for the Walt Disney Company and the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. He also seemed to be more mature than other kids in his school because of the fact he has grown up in a family full of People who are in their 20s-50s. As well as the fact nothing was hidden or sugarcoated for him.
Ages 6 - 12
Not much is known about the Premier from ages 6–9. It is known that Andrew was a child who had acted rather 'out of the ordinary' when he was these ages. He would be considered extremely weird compared to everyone else, and He was reported to have no friends at all. He was bullied very often and a lot from this timeline still effects him today. During his childhood, Andrew became exceptionally more intelligent and mature than the rest of his classmates in school, though he struggled with impulse control.
In 2018, at age 12, he had a notebook which had written in it multiple threats against his middle school. Such as "I am going to nuke (Social Worker Name) and (Social Worker Assistant Name)!!" as well as other worse threats. He had a visit from the Police Department of Mokena to figure these threats out as well as to figure out if our Premier had a gun. He was told by a officer that he should be mentally evaluated immediately in which Andrew and his mother obliged. They went to Silver Cross Hospital, where he was evaluated. This is where he found out he would go to Hartgrove Behavioral Health System, A mental hospital located in Cicero, Chicago. He would be diagnosed with an anger disorder. Intermittent Explosive Disorder (IED), a type of Impulse Control Disorder. In 2022, however, it was suggested by both a school psychologist and Andrew's personal social worker that Andrew most likely has High Functioning Autism (HFA), or simply put, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
This trip to the hospital would ultimately change how he acted and how he was as a person. It made him open up a lot more, and his impulse control got significantly worse. It would also affect his social life, as he was viewed as someone who was mentally ill. It made him significantly more intelligent, as around this time, he got into a game called Hearts of Iron IV and studied World War II. This is around the time he started studying history as he had free time. Though, he had an interest in history years beforehand.
Ages 13 - 16
During this time, He started Special Education and had its services from April 2, 2018 until 29 May 2020. He had started to really educate himself in Politics, History and Geography. He first founded the ISSR, a predecessor to Adonia, on 14 September 2019. This was also around the time where bullying of Andrew got worse. It is believed to be due to his Mental Disorder Diagnosis, Special Education Status, and His intelligence and maturity. Most friends he has are on the Discord App and in the community. This had started to change, however, during Andrew's 2021-2022 Sophomore school year. Andrew is noted to get along with people twice his age, better than people his own age. Though, he can still be friends with people his own age. Following the realization that Andrew had an addiction problem to the community, he pulled Adonia from major parts of the community in 2021. Andrew would later be added to The Fun Gang, a micronational social club. Andrew however decided to leave the Fun Gang in August of the same year order to focus on himself, and to avoid bringing any dread to the group chat. he was struggling in a depressive state at the time. After this time, Andrew had begun to bring Adonia back into public light once again by doing speeches, and presentations.
Ages 16 - 17
Andrew entered his Sophomore Year just after his leaving of the Fun Gang chat, where he would transition towards his studies in a more organized and focused manner. During that year, he had also continued advertisement of Adonia, doing one of his most vital speeches in November 2021, where he cited that Adonia was the 'best thing' that had ever happened to him, although no recording of this speech actually exists. Just 2 months later, Andrew would meet one of the best teachers he had ever had, who would've ultimately changed his path in both micronationalism and in politics for a serious amount of time. Andrew refers to this teacher as 'MC', standing for the teachers initials. MC had noted in Andrew's IEP that he had a higher reading comprehension, and asked Andrew to consider taking on AP Gov and Politics his Junior Year of Highschool. Although reluctant at first, considering this was the only time any teacher had made such a reccomendation, Andrew took on this offer. Andrew would also begin to find a job, eventually settling at McDonalds. After finishing his sophomore year, Andrew would begin to look into ways of getting into local politics because of MC.
During the summer of 2022, Andrew held the The Intermicronational Unity Summit, which was considered a success by its higher administration, with much discussion held on micronationalism. Also during the summer, Andrew would quit his job at McDonalds after what he considered to be 'mental abuse' at the workplace. During the summer of 2022, Andrew had noted a collapse of his mental health, likely due to stress from overworking and bullying, and also because of various overstressing in micronationalism. He would begin to finish off his micronational career starting that year, although beginning in secret plans for 2023 without micronationalism in his life. Andrew began a move towards isolation, by first taking breaks from the community (although mainly unannounced).
As his Junior Year began, Andrew began to hyperfocus upon his education. During the first part of his Junior Year, Andrew took AP Gov and began study of the US Government. He would also begin to take a Spanish Class as well, which he needed to go to college. Later on in early September 2022, Andrew would begin to volunteer in work for the IEA in his local district. Around September 2022, Andrew began to completely shift to local politics. In doing so, Andrew had deleted all Adonian Twitter Accounts, began avoiding the use of Discord, and has continued his studies of politics alongside MC, who assisted Andrew in getting involved with the IEA and helping his study of politics.
In September 2022, Andrew had once again completely pulled from the community, deleting the Adonian Twitter Account and all of his connections in the community other than through microwiki, which he plans to also completely disregard by 2023. As of 13/09/2022, Andrew has full intention to completely leave the community (although no given date is known) by 2023, leaving only very few contacts, those whom he decides to maintain contact with.
Andrew identifies as a Libertarian Socialist and Left-Wing Populist.
Andrew has varying believes on socialism, believing a strive for Market Socialism, being inspired by Yugoslavia's Socialist Economic Model, to an eventual completely Socialist Economy. Andrew has stated that a workers revolution should by led by a 'People's Vanguard', although never defining what the People's Vanguard is, it is assumed that Andrew believes in the Marxist-Leninist Revolutionary Model. Andrew has been dubbed as a Liberal Socialist by many other socialists, although Andrew has never actually acknowledged this.
Andrew is strictly anti-authoritarian, in which he states that Authoritarianism is an 'overreach of government and an abuse of basic human rights'. He has criticized the Communist Party of China, the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, the Workers Party of Korea, and other varying socialist parties for their authoritarian approach in the implementation of socialism. He has also publicly spoken out against the Holodomor Famine, Tiananmen Square Massacre, and the ongoing Uyghur Muslim Crisis in China. Andrew has also cited his support for the Anti-Fascist Movement, as he believes that it is necessary for the progression of the free world.
Furthermore, Andrew has also began local support and volunteering for teachers unions. Andrew has talked about and sent full support to the Workers Rights Amendment in the State of Illinois, which would amend the Illinois Constitution to include Unionization Protections. He also also taken major strides in speaking out against unfair educational practices, including what Andrew has stated to be 'American Propaganda' in the Education System. He has cited Henry Giroux and his teacher, MC, as his inspiration for this.
Andrew has also began to write essays on politics, although none of which have been published yet.

Quotations from Andrew
- "I have always wondered what the world would be like without the greatest philosophers? What if we just dropped Socrates, Plato? Where would we be as a species?"
- "Adonia lived, Adonia lives, Adonia will live"
- "Me without Adonia is like the human body without a heart. I wouldn't be the same person. I would practically become a chicken without its head. In fact, my heart IS Adonian."
- "Suddenly Adonia picked up, and me and my people went from nothing to everything we wanted to be"
- "There are many people that used to inspire me, but I know now that I inspire myself plenty."
- "Adonia is one of the most important things to me in life. It may be a micronation or dare I say, a fake nation, but Adonia has shown me a true inner self nothing else I have done has shown me. It has given me the power to lead as I have always wanted, and show people the right path to their destiny."
- "It's crazy how one choice in my life radically changed everything. From my mental hospital trip to Adonia, it has all changed me from nothing, into the person I am today, which is what I always wanted to be"
- "Some people say I am too patriotic for Adonia. Chauvinistic, even. I say that it is perfectly natural for someone to love something that they deeply care about, something that permanently changed their life, and something that saved their life from depleting into nothingness. I even laugh at such a proposition."
- "Is wanting to sacrifice yourself for a belief, a movement, an idea, too much? Is it too much to love your nation more than anything else? Is it too much to dedicate yourself to your own propositions and ideas?"
