Gagium, sometimes referred to as Yedge and known in the FCN as Mr. Gagium, is a former politician of The League who served as a Council Delegate of the Council of the Republic. Gagium joined NationStates on April 8, 2017 and moved to the Confederation of Conservative Nations the same day. Throughout his career on NationStates, Gagium has held various political and military positions in the Confederacy of Conservative Nations, the Federation of Conservative Nations, The League, and informally in the Monarchist and Democratic Alliance.

Gagium helped found the Federation of Conservative Nations in 2017, and quickly became the region's Secretary of Internal Affairs after serving as Secretary of Roleplay in the Confederacy of Conservative Nations. Gagium became President in April 2018, and put down the coup attempt by Crimsonfield in September 2018 while being DDoSed in the process. Gagium would serve as Secretary of Internal Affairs and Secretary of War under numerous Presidents, and was elected to President in a snap election in March 2020. Gagium left the Federation of Conservative Nations for The League in April 2020, along with several other members of the region. Shortly after, the FCN was disbanded by the Senate.

On August 14, after Gagium accumulated a net worth of approximately -220,000 Leaguecredits, he appointed himself as CEO of the Shadow Realm.[citation needed]

Through holding several leadership positions in the Federation of Conservative Nations, Gagium was regarded as a relatively trusted member of the region by many until the dissolution of the Federation. Gagium is known on NationStates for being the founder of the Federation of Conservative Nations. Gagium has been accused of corruption, manipulating the FCN Dollar, embezzlement, and conspiracy against several regions.[citation needed]

Personal Life

Wealth

As of August 11, Gagium has an approximate net worth of ∞ FCN Dollars. However, Gagium has previously had a net worth of -∞ FCN Dollars after a failed blackjack attempt, though he quickly regained the money through unknown methods.[citation needed] Gagium had a net worth of 10,000 Leaguecredits as of August 9, though this quickly dropped to 0. He regained a net worth of above 10,000 Leaguecredits on August 11 before losing his money to a series of failed gambling attempts.

Gagium has a net worth of -211,000 Leaguecredits as of August 15.

Gambling

It is alleged that Gagium has a crippling addiction to gambling Leaguecredits.[citation needed]

On August 14, Gagium loaned 90,000 Leaguecredits from CFAC and gambled it all with roulette. After Gagium won, he paid CFAC back 99,000 and paid another loan he took out from Spode. Gagium still had over 60,000 Leaguecredits after repaying the loans. However, Gagium soon lost this money, so he took out another 90,000 Leaguecredit loan from CFAC and gambled it all to earn 180,000 Leaguecredits. After paying back the loan, Gagium made a profit of 81,000 LC.

This however quickly changed, as Gagium gambled that away and ended the day with a balance of nearly -220,000 Leaguecredits.

On August 30, Gagium went from having a net worth of over 380,000 Leaguecredits (being first on the leaderboard) to having a net worth of roughly -560,000 Leaguecredits (last on the leaderboard) thanks to gambling.

Public Image

In the FCN

During Gagium's time in the Federation of Conservative Nations, Gagium has served as President, Secretary of Interior Affairs, Secretary of War, and in other officer positions. Because of this, many nations saw Gagium as a trusted member of the region and as a capable leader. However, many people have also viewed Gagium unfavorably for some of his actions in the FCN, including somewhat frequently getting into arguments. In the final days of the FCN, several people believed that Gagium acted as if he was above regional law, and as a result of this, prepared to move to a different region. This image of Gagium was solidified after an argument he had with Dragons of Power which resulted in him purging the argument. While Gagium maintains that he was just trying to clean up the channel and admitted to everything he did, people such as Logon and Viridus accused him of deleting evidence. While the incident caused many people to form unfavorable opinions of Gagium, Dragons of Power himself has since forgiven Gagium for the incident, and others still viewed Gagium somewhat positively.

Crimsonfield and his associates viewed Gagium extremely negative during their time in the FCN and were working on removing him from the Presidency before some of them got banned for treason and being involved in Crimsonfield's illicit actions and violations of regional law.

In the RCN

After Gagium left the FCN, people such as COT accused Gagium of treason against the region, abandoning the FCN or killing the FCN, and wishing ill will against the community. While many people view Gagium unfavorably in the Republic of Conservative Nations, some people, such as New Waldensia, maintained that they still hold some respect for Gagium. Regardless, Gagium has opted to not participate in the RCN to avoid unnecessary drama or conflict.

In NSGP

Gagium is known on the NationStates Gameplay community for his use of slurs such as the n-word in the FCN during 2018. After evidence of this was brought to the WA Security Council in October 2018, Gagium has apologized for his use of slurs and his repeated use of the n-word at the time. However, Gagium has maintained that it was never his intention to be racist at the time while agreeing that the words are incredibly racist. After this, a majority of people associated with NSGP still viewed Gagium as a racist and even as a fascist. In early 2020, images allegedly from the first FCN discord server showed Gagium making racist remarks to various people, none of whom have ever been associated with the FCN. These images were later shown to be faked by a fascist on the site.

In July 2020, NSGP targeted the League for the use of slurs. Gagium's defense of using the words was that it was in a joking manner targeting a single consenting individual instead of a group of people.
