Andrew Williamson Burges OAM (22 May 1991 - 15 November 2076) was an Australian politician who served as the nations 33rd Prime Minister, serving for a total of thirty-six years as head of government, and fifty-two years as a member of the Australian Parliament, both records for the positions.
Often considered one of the nations most controversial leaders, Burges led Australia through a period of economic growth, strengthened the nation's military, and created the Australian Space and Aeronautics Agency (ASAA). However, he was also considered a despot, strengthening power of government in the social sector, rigorously controlling immigration, being accused of creating a "cult of personality" and reportedly rigging elections in favour of his party; the Australian Nationalist Party.
Born to a farming family in 1991 in Cooktown, Queensland, to Amelia Burges (née Gordon) and Leslie Burges as a third child. Andrew's father was a full time member of the Queensland National Party, although he was also a sympathiser of the far-right Australian League of Rights and later on in life, the One Nation party.
Early in life, Burges was brought to, and raised in the Lockyer Valley region of south-east Queensland, where he attended the local state schools. Often quoted as an extremely gifted student, he represented his school in a number of inter-school debates, as well as achieving Dux (given to the highest ranking student) in his final year in secondary schooling. In 2010, he attended Griffith university, where he graduated with a bachelor's degree in Government and International Studies, and attained the highest marks in his graduating year. However, his inability to socialise in a number of context settings left him unemployed, and out of desperation, began offering his services to a number of right and far-right groups.
Early political careerEdit
In 2014, following a year of subsistence work for the Queensland branch of the One Nation party, he joined the disintegrating white nationalist Australia First Party, led by the Jim Saleam to work as a advisor and secretary. Adopting the many ideological ideals of the party, Burges quickly befriended 59 year old party leader, who in turn became a mentor to the inexperienced Burges. Under Saleam, Burges became noticeably more open to social settings, and a more persuasive speaker, climbing up the party ladder to become deputy under Saleam. As a result of his above average intelligence, as well as a strong speaking voice, he managed to improve the declining party's prospects, but eventually, Australia First was disbanded over fears of federal raids, especially after a number of other government-led incursions into far-right political organizations.
