Viteu Marcianüs (popularly referred to as V) was a citizen of Talossa and of Vuode from 2006/XXVII to 2013/XXXIV.

Introduction to the Kingdom of Talossa

In the summer of 2006, Viteu researched micronations and discovered the Kingdom of Talossa. He applied for citizenship on July 27, 2006, and was instructed by then Secretary of State John Woolley to create a Wittenberg account. Viteu did just this and promptly created an account and was introduced to the Kingdom on July 31, 2006. Once a fortnight had passed, a petition to grant him citizenship was offered. Citizenship was granted on August 21, 2006.

National Politics

Early days and the RUMP

After he became a citizen, Viteu joined the RUMP and served as a Member of Cosa (MC) in the 36th, 37th, and 38th Cosas. He also served as Deputy Minister of Immigration and Minister of Immigration during this period. During his tenure as Immigration Minister, he started the TALOSSAssistant program and oversaw Talossa grow to over one hundred citizens. By the time of the 38th Cosa, he resigned his position as Immigration Minister and took the position of Capo di tutti capi in the Mysterious Executive Coven.

Member of the Opposition

By the end of the 38th Cosa, Viteu had decided to experiment with Opposition politics. After a mild disagreement with the RUMP leadership, he joined the newly formed Progressive Party and served as an MC in the 39th Cosa. He was also a member of the ZPT during the 40th Cosa.

Return to the RUMP

After a tumultuous election season, Marcianüs went through a period of inactivity. When he returned, he decided to enter the Senatorial race in Vuode for the seat vacated by Sir Trotxâ Betiñéir. He ran as the RUMP candidate and was largely considered the underdog, as opposition parties had dominated Vuodean politics for some time. Marcianüs won a surprise victory and served the RUMP faithfully until his resignation. On 23 July 2012, Viteu became the Minister of Culture.

Politics of Vuode

Viteu was active in the politics of Vuode since becoming a citizen. After a period of inactivity, Viteu entered into the Senatorial race when Sir Trotxâ Betiñéir vacated his seat at the end of the 40th Cosa. During this period, Vuode was dominated by Opposition politics and Viteu was seen as a long shot. Nevertheless, he managed to win election even though he campaigned against the Constitution of 2010, which passed. Viteu stood for an uncontested election for the U-Class Premier during the 44th Cosa election for Vuode's Estats Xhenerais. He also voted, along with the other Premiers, to call a Constitutional Convention and fix the problems of Vuode.

Other Activities in Talossa

On March 13, 2012, Viteu changed his Talossan name from Viteu Toctviac'hteir to Viteu Marcianüs. Viteu also hosted the Talossa News Project (TNP). The show consisted of Viteu interviewing different Talossans about day to day issues facing the kingdom.

Viteu contributed to a coloring book for dandelions published in 2008.

Departure

After dealing with what Viteu perceived as perpetual hypocrisy from those on the other side of Talossan political spectrum and having himself and his friends be the targets of insults, Viteu had a public meltdown and decide to leave the Kingdom of Talossa on 30 Dec, 2013/XXXIV. Viteu felt this was the best path as Talossa ceased being fun and became a constant point of stress, which detracted from other aspects of his life.
