SweetLemons is a growing, developing, and established nation with citizens primarily of Mixed ethnicity whose religion is Judaism. It is a backwards nation when it comes to technology and many refer to it unkindly as a 'Third World Nation'. Its citizens pay extremely high taxes and many despise their government as a result. The citizens of SweetLemons work diligently to produce Rubber and Uranium as tradable resources for their nation. The government has no definite position on foreign affairs at this time. SweetLemons is currently researching nuclear technology for the use of nuclear power plants but believes nuclear weapons should be banned. Plans are on the way within SweetLemons to open new rehabilitation centers across the nation and educate its citizens of the dangers of drug use. SweetLemons allows its citizens to protest their government but uses a strong police force to monitor things and arrest lawbreakers. It has an open border policy, but in order for immigrants to remain in the country they will have to become citizens first. SweetLemons believes in the freedom of speech and feels that it is every citizen's right to speak freely about their government. The government gives foreign aid when it can, but looks to take care of its own people first. The government of SweetLemons will trade with any other country regardless of ethical consequences.
New Pacific OrderEdit
Beginnings with New Pacific OrderEdit
AngelRick applied to the New Pacific Order on July 24, 2010 after reading a recruitment message sent by Wentworth. The reason he chose NPO he states is "Many alliances promised great aid upon entry, among other freebies. The New Pacific Order offered me something else, camaraderie and community. I was curious, all of these other alliances offered me all this great stuff, why did this particular alliance only offer me these things? I thought, either they are really good, or they are just cocky. I soon found out that the New Pacific Order was more than just a CN alliance, it was a true community of great people." His application was approved by Contra on July 30.
Friendships and CamaraderieEdit
When asked whom he feels have been the most influential people in Pacifica to him he stated the following:
|“||Some of the most influential people are probably Qazzian and Rogal Dorn. Qazzian was my mentor for a few months, he showed me the ropes, and introduced me to the Pacifican way of life. In a time when I was a scared little newbie still learning the ropes, he was there to push me in the right direction. I would not be where I am now without his gentle guidance. Rogal Dorn has been a great comrade and friend for much of my time in the order. We fought in several wars together, and it was he that invited me into my first squad. I still had no idea where I was going in the Order. He has been very supportive and helped guide me along my journey in the Order. He has provided great leadership and wonderful companionship to all members of our squad..||”|
When asked what his future aspirations are in both NPO and Cybernations in general AngelRick said:
|“||My future aspirations... I hope to continue to help the Order in any way that I can, perhaps do a bit more diplo work to help our image abroad. I feel that I could do a lot for the order as an ambassador. As for CN, I want to move up in NS, after I have procured for a while. I would like to be able to have the chance to become a larger nation and improve the NPO's military strength.||”|
Most memorable momentEdit
When asked what his most memorable moment in Pacifica has been so far AngelRick replied:
|“||I still remember the first war I faced as a Pacifican, and how I anarchied the sucker. I entered my battalion IRC channel looking for some help to begin my war. I had requested a target and was unsure what to do from there. Plenty of senior members gave me a lot of help beginning my war and when I anarchied my target, the congratulations I received from my comrades made me very happy. I was very proud to be a Pacifican that day.||”|

Wings of LibertyEdit
In mid September after AngelRick and Rogal Dorn had gone to war a few times together and gotten to know each other a bit more Rogal asked him if he would join the squad he was in with Jamsoolee and Degree, AngelRick agreed. In the beginning of October Jamsoolee posted on the NPO forums he was going inactive and didn't plan to come back. With Rogal on a leave of absence thus ended the Wings of Liberty.
In late October Rogal Dorn messaged AngelRick and asked him if he was interested in forming a new Squad. AngelRick agreed and on October 28, 2010 Ghost Squad (gamma variant) was born with an announcement thread by the Omega Ghost Squad Leader Teeters. It's creation was hailed with praise by members of the NPO High Command. jgolla, a Colonel in Pacifica's War Machine stated "Great squad. I look forward to seeing a lot out of you guys." AngelRick has been to war once with a rogue since the squad was formed. When asked to comment on the Ghost Squad AngelRick had this to say:
|“||This has been my favorite by far, not only b/c of its activity, but also because of the level of camaraderie and respect we have for each other. Woe to anyone that messes with the Ghost squad.||”|
On July 29, 2011, AngelRick posted his resignation on the forums of Pacifica. In his resignation, he stated:
|“||I've thoroughly enjoyed the great community here, especially fighting and bleeding with you all for several months. It's crazy that I actually enjoyed watching my nation being beaten, going on IRC to coordinate quickly, sending (and receiving) aid packages, and of course, whoring out my uranium. There have been people watching over my little nation and I every step of the way and I thank you for it. I am leaving though mostly because I want to see what's out there in CN.||”|
Many fellow Pacificans and friends waved AngelRick goodbye and wished him best of luck for the future.
