"Meow." - Annie Payton on policy issues, 2019.
Annie Payton 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.
Willemstan Discord Accounts
- Annie had used the "chonker" account to maintain a separate identity from Eli. However, the account was soon turned into another one of Charlie's spam bots shortly after creation. It then broke in 2019 and hasn't worked since.

Annie served as the third Dictator of Willemstan. He was in power from the Summer 2019 Election to the Winter 2019 Election, and thus was the first Dictator to actually complete a term in office. That's right ladies and gentlemen, a fucking cat is the longest serving Dictator of Willemstan.
Annie was a candidate for the Summer 2019 Election, in which he won by one vote. This seems to be a common theme with the Paytons.
Departure from Willemstan
Annie never pursued re-election, and hasn't been involved with Willemstan since his full term. However, Annie has made several cameo appearances through Eli Payton's webcam during school meets in 2020 and 2021.
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 turn. Annie Payton has been under longstanding criticism for being Eli Payton's puppet, as while the cat has an intellegence greater than the average Discord mod, it simply does not understand what Discord is nor how to speak English. 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.
