Background

Annie Payton (frequently mispronounced as "Ann Payton" by Ian) is a former Dictator of Willemstan and Eli Payton's cat. He joined Willemstan during the Summer 2019 Election as a replacement candidate. Despite what the name suggests, Annie is in fact a male, not a female. Annie Payton was basically a figurehead for Eli while he wasn't very interested in leading Willemstan. He is regarded as the least popular Dictator of all time and a subject of much controversy.

Dictatorship

Main article: Leadership of Willemstan's Dictators and Presidents

Annie served as the third Dictator of Willemstan. He was in power from the Summer 2019 Election to the Winter 2019 Election. Annie Payton was the first Dictator to successfully complete a term in office.


Political Record

Annie was a candidate for the Summer 2019 Election, in which he won by one vote.


Departure from Willemstan

Annie never pursued re-election, and hasn't been involved with Willemstan since his full term. However, Annie made several cameo appearances through Eli Payton's webcam during school meets in 2020 and 2021.


Controversy

While Annie Payton is liked because "awww cute cat", this has not saved him from being the subject of much controversy and debate, even after the end of his term. While being Eli's figurehead, the cat failed to accomplish anything of substance and continued the infamous Political Drought for a whole six months. Annie Payton was voted as the least popular Dictator of all time by the Willemstan public. In light of Annie's actions (or lack thereof), legislation in both the Willemstan Amendments and the New Articles of Willemstan has been passed to prevent animals from running for Dictator.
