Template:National Radicalism sidebar Thomas Peter Jacobs[c] is a South African-Irish historian, artist and musician who has served as the President of Roscamistan several times in its history, and is a co-founder of the nation. Although he no longer considers himself a micronationalist, he remains active within Roscamistan and its allies, on the grounds of maintaining stability and prosperity.

He is known for his headstrong political views, which have gotten him in controversy. Jacobs is a self-described National-Radicalist, a syncretic ideology composed of authoritarian socialism, anti-capitalism, and state catholicism.

Early life

Jacobs was born in 2008, in Galway, Ireland. He lived first in the suburb of Renmore, and later to the east of Galway, where he currently lives.



Jacobs’ first micronation, Roscamistan was founded in February 2021 with his friend Culann Burke, which would later on become an influential nation in the future Galway Sector. Jacobs made himself President and Burke his Vice President. He has developed Roscamistan more than any other President, having created most of the institutions and acts in the nation.

He has seen eight Vice Presidents under his five terms as President. Doros Patusky, Ludwig Collins, Nyck Bradaten, Ali Farrokhzad, Culann Burke, Jan Kotoński, Falcone de Los Santos, and Marco Hasse have all served under Jacobs, with Hasse as his current.

East Galway

Alongside of a small group of students in his school, Jacobs founded the East Galway Soviet, a council of students dedicated to socialist beliefs on 7 September 2021. Jan Kotoński, himself and Ludwig Collins would be made Chairman, Vice Chairman, and General Secretary respectively. On the 7th of January 2022, Jacobs and the other higher members of the Soviet declared the East Galway Commune, a quasi-stateless entity headed by the a chairman and later premier of the commune, Jan Kotoński. A People’s Assembly was created to serve as the legislative body in the commune, with Jacobs placed as its chairman and head of the assembly’s presidium, in effect Jacobs had become a supreme legislator.

From late February to April 2022, the commune saw a heavy decline in activity and decline of Kotoński’s Premiership in general. To combat this, the People’s Executive began to reform the commune, planning to create a fully functional parliamentary socialist republic to replace the quasi-stateless socialist commune. The People’s Executive renamed itself to the Cabinet of Ministers, a Presidency was created to be the head of state, the head of the Free People’s Army being transferred to the Presidency, and a new House of Representatives replacing the People’s Assembly.

In July 2022, President Collins and Vice-Premier Jacobs performed a constitutional coup, replacing one another in each other’s roles, and in September 2022, Jacobs founded the East Galwegian Blue-Shirt Movement, replacing the Party of Labour and Iron as the dominant party.

In December 2022 he successfully created and passed two acts which allowed the Cabinet of Ministers to hold referendums and the second act annexing Jordans Island and Moycullen, East Galway as territories.[1]

In July 2023, Jacobs dissolved East Galway due to him not caring for the nation.

Personal life

Jacobs lives in Galway, Ireland with his family. He is currently a third year student in secondary school. In spite of learning difficulties, Jacobs is fluent in Irish.

His hobbies include Transformers, reading, writing, history, music, Muay Thai, and going to the gym. He is also a member of Scouting Ireland, and is currently a Venture. Having retired from micronationalism, Jacobs works as a historian dedicated to preserving Roscami history.


Jacobs is also a musician, playing acoustic guitar and drums. He primarily listens to Nirvana, Linkin Park, Soundgarden, Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam, Limp Bizkit, Metallica, Beastie Boys, Three Days Grace, Rage against the Machine, Alice in Chains, Dire Straits, and others.

His primary influences are Grunge, Alt-Rock, Alt-metal, heavy metal, Hip hop, nu metal, punk rock, and Rap metal.

Political views

Jacobs identifies with his National Radicalist movement. The National Radicalist ideology is composed of Authoritarianism, State Catholicism, Traditionalism, Socialism, and soft Fascism. Throughout micronationalism, Jacobs has been extremely headstrong in his views, though this has come at the cost of electoral success.

He is against the existence of the European Union, Northern Ireland, and Israel. He currently supports no party in Ireland, and holds Irish politics in contempt. He is described as holding both left and right wing views, both calling for economic reform, including an abolition of free market capitalism, whilst also advocating for traditionalism.

Religious views

Jacobs is a Roman Catholic, and completed his Catholic confirmation in September 2021. His views on religion often collide with his political views, and has shown himself to be a firm believer that the Catholic Church is the one true church, much to the dismay of his Orthodox and Protestant colleagues. His first micronation, Roscamistan, has been a Catholic state since its foundation.

Jacobs is also a firm believer in state religion, and has defended the status of Catholicism as the state religion of Roscamistan from opposition parties through 2022 and 2023.


Jacobs is notable for him being the former foreign minister of multiple micronations. He served as Foreign Secretary in both Roscamistan and Excelsior, and the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the dissolved nations of East Galway and Ballinfoyleburg.

He signed most treaties between Roscamistan and other micronations, and served as the nation’s foremost diplomat. Jacobs would retire from diplomacy in May of 2023, in the wake of increasing isolationism in Roscamistan.


Jacobs is ethnically Irish through his mother, and English, Scottish, and Danish through his father. Through his father’s maternal side, he is descended from the Clan Mackintosh.
