I’m going to be honest, if Joshua Norton existed in the Modern Day, I feel like he would’ve been a Meme. I can describe his popularity, like if he was the Florida Man of the 19th century
 
Franz Conrad Hoetzendorf: Member of Confederal Parliament for East Austria and Opposition Minister of Defence for the Danube Confederation. He is a figure of international recognition for his previous terms as Government Minister of Defence and his campaigns preceding it calling for greater military collaboration between the members of the confederation. He is loved and hated for his bellicose rhetoric against Turkey and Russia, perceiving them both as threats to the integrity of the states of Eastern and Southern Europe and thus promotes closer relations with Poland to form a 'Central Alliance' that could stand up to either of them.

Franz Ferdinand Habsburg
: Member of Confederal Parliament for East Austria and Prime Minister of the Danube Confederation. Also an advocated for 'ever closer union' between the confederal states, opinion on him was bitterly divided following his proposal to empower the subnational regions, with nationalists (particularly Hungarians) viewing it as a plot to smother national divisions into one superstate (which it basically is). Also controversial is his civil union with his wife Šejla, a Bosnian Muslim, which the nationalists' far-right fringe take issue with. He also faces criticism from the liberal left, with rumours of him possessing deeply anti-Hungarian sentiment. Recording of his furious argument against MCP Hoetzendorf on the issue of confrontation with Russia, nearly coming to blows, made international headlines.

In 2015 while serving as head of the Navy Board within the Defense ministry he strongly opposed the Brexit referendum. Despite his often hardline conservative views he is an opponent of populist alt-right ideology and against division among NATO partners and the European Union. At the same time Churchill had been critizised for a near fatal stand off between the Royal Navy and an allied Turkish NATO fleet in the Medditerranian near the Cyprus sea border.

From there, he quickly gained a reputation as a far-right firebrand, with him privately desiring the dissolution of democracy in Japan and favoring the return of an absolute monarchy through the Emperor.
