1. Marie Bricks - incumbent, Liberal Democratic Party (center-left)
In power since early 2013, Bricks has been a strong voice for reform and new programs to strengthen the economy and nation. While her 2013 tax increases on the wealthy have been extremely unpopular with the richest 10% of Lego Republic citizens, this much-needed revenue has been used to expand government programs. Under Bricks, the capital has been rebuilt and modernized, the government has been reorganized to be more efficient, and most notably, the Republic began international relations this year. Bricks's foreign policy involves improving relations with the Republic's allies and ideological battles with the Empire of Legoland.
2. Francis David - member of Parliament, Conservative Party (right-wing)
Well known for correcting just about anyone's pronunciation of his last name (it's said Da-veed), David is Bricks's strongest opponent. As leader of the Conservative Party, Francis David has not stopped criticizing Bricks since she took office on January 1, 2013. From her handling of the deteriorating minifig world security situation to the recent energy crisis, David has plenty of alternatives to suggest. The member of Parliament, known for initially supporting Fred Deeds, has changed his position on that issue to concur with Bricks, but is otherwise her polar opposite politically. David is a strong supporter of cutting state programs and spending to pay for tax cuts, as well as increasing the military budget. Currently, David supports cutting off relations with Legoland entirely and concentrating on nations that are more friendly towards the Republic, like Legopolis and the PBR.
3. Elizabeth Fancourt - author and diplomat, Socialist Party (left-wing)
While many of her views are similar to those of Bricks, Elizabeth Fancourt is far to the left of the president on the political spectrum. Fancourt is a supporter of state-sponsored wealth redistribution and believes that closing the income gap is a priority. Fancourt supports moving to a socialist economy in a five-year plan, making corporations and the stock market illegal as a first step. Fancourt is a noted expert on international politics, having worked in the Office of Foreign Affairs for much of her career. Fancourt supports solving the international situation through negociations with Legoland.
4. Stephen Studsbury - businessman, National Minifig Front (extreme right)
A relatively new minifig in Lego Republic politics, Stephen Studsbury has made his vocal opinions known in recent years. A successful businessman, he wants to bring a business model to the Republic's government, slashing expenses by ending funding for programs like the Office of Environmental Protection. His self-stated priority is getting minifigs back to work, and he is known for his opposition to any kind of business regulations. Studsbury's foreign policy strategy is to convert the entire minifig world to democracy using military force, being a strong believer in "Lego Republic exceptionalism."
