Demon Dog, 1st Marquess of Arcadia, also known as 1st Earl of Dublin, was the Prime Minister of Palmshire and Lord President of the Council. He is General Secretary and Leader of the Palmshire Communist Party. Lord Arcadia was the Foreign Secretary during Cypress and Metaville ministries before he resigned. Arcadia was the Leader of the Opposition from 5 April 2011 until his appointment as Prime Minister on 26 June.

Business career

Lord Dublin is the owner of Googl Labs, which had recently received a royal charter from King Legion I granting it a monopoly on lucrative arms trade within Palmshire territories for ten years. He also sits on the board of directors for East Winter Company.

Military career

Lord Dublin was appointed Colonel of the 1st Regiment of Foot in the Palmshire Army on 8 January 2011. As commanding officer of the regiment, he was responsible for its recruitment and oversees day-to-day operations of the regiment including training and drills as well appointing officers below his rank in the regiment.

Political career

Lord Dublin was created the Earl of Dublin on 10 December 2010 and took up his seat in the Parliament on 11 December 2010. He was later created the Earl of Arcadia on 8 May 2011, with his Earldom of Dublin becoming secondary peerage, a first in Peerage of Palmshire

Lord Dublin was appointed the Foreign Secretary in the Duke of Cypress Hollow ministry on 8 March 2011. He would later play a critical role in downfall of the Duke, with bribes from the monarchy, by voting against its budget in Parliament, which failed to pass by margin of one vote, on 20 March, forcing dismissal of the Duke and his government on 28 March. This act was later criticized by some people loyal to the Duke as treachery and betrayal, yet he was rewarded by the King for this act with promise of supporting his proposed funding for Outerplanetary Ballistic Missiles (OPBM), which was later included in the budget passed on 20 April.

On 28 March, he was reappointed to that office in Lord Metaville's ministry. He later resigned on 5 April in protest over the 2011 general election in which he was defeated by the Duchess of Rochester in bid for becoming the next Prime Minister. Lord Dublin subsequently had his Dublin estates seceded and declared war on the Government, provoking a relatively bloodless yet expensive civil war. After neither side won anything and the war settled into indecisive stalemate, finally Lord Dublin and the Government agreed to an armistice and negotiated the Treaty of Cypress Hollow which is now currently pending the Parliament for ratification.

Following his resignation, he returned to the Opposition and became its Leader. He later contested election for seat representing parliamentary borough of Cypress Hollow & Rockford but lost to Rochester during the June general election

Following Rochester's resignation from the offices on 25 June, Lord Arcadia was asked the following day by Legion I to form a new government, which he accepted. However, he faced challenges of getting his government's legislations passed in Parliament, since he was heading a minority government, lacking majority in either houses of the Parliament. This meant dependence on cross-benchers, or independents, to ensure his government sponsored legislations get passed.

Following defeat of his government's budget, he asked Legion I to dissolve the Parliament, which was granted, triggering general election which was held between 23 July to August 1. His party won additional seat in the Commons (he was elected to a seat there) but failed to secure the majority there. He later tendered his resignation to the King, which was accepted. The Duchess of Rochester then succeeded him as the Prime Minister.

He was later appointed Foreign Secretary in the second Rochester Ministry on 4 August and was raised to Marquess peerage rank the next day.
