Main article: Leadership of Willemstan's Dictators and Presidents
Sean served as the fourth Dictator of Willemstan. He was in power from the Winter 2019 Election until he was removed from power during the June 2020 Coup. As you may have guessed, his reign was very controversial due to the Willemstan 1.1 Reforms, which were mostly gutted after he was removed from power. However, the early months of his Dictatorship were met with widespread approval, so his overal reputation was very mixed.
Sean served as the sixth Dictator of Willemstan. He won the Winter 2020 Election, and remained in power until the Summer 2021 Election. During his second dictatorship, he approved a total overhaul of the election process, the development of an internment center for unwanted members, and the establishment of a Willemstan Salt Mine. He also lead Willemstan to war against r/Williamston for a final time.
Sean ran during the Winter 2018 Election, in which he was defeated and came in last place, earning only 10% of the vote.
Sean ran again during the Winter 2019 Election, in which he ran on joke policies such as mandatory water consumption. He narrowly won the election by a single vote, and thus became Dictator.
Sean ran once again during the Winter 2020 Election, despite the controversy behind his previous dictatorship. He won the election by nine votes, the greatest lead since the very first Willemstan election.
Despite promising to run in every Willemstan election, Sean did not run as a candidate for the Summer 2021 Election. Following this, he was banned under the New Articles of Willemstan from seeking the position of Dictator again.
Sean has not directly participated in voter fraud, but he has encouraged it on several occasions. In the Winter 2018 Election, Sean voted for Eli Payton because "He kicked my ass at smash and I am compelled by honor reasons to vote for him.". Sean did not vote in the tiebreaker poll for that election. Sean did not vote in the Summer 2019 Election. For the Winter 2019 Election, Sean voted for Andrew Batten, but participated in voter fraud for his own benifit. For the Winter 2020 Election, Sean voted for himself and encouraged vote outsourcing, which influenced the election in his favor. Sean voted for Natalie, Josue, and Devin A. in the Summer 2021 Election. Sean did not vote in the Winter 2021 Election or the Summer 2022 Election.
Main article: System I
Sean was a founder of the System folder, a folder of viruses, computer programs, and other questionable media that was deleted by the IT Men.

Main article: System IV
Sean is one of the three founders of the System IV folder, although he has not contributed much content to it compared to previous System folders.

Willemstan Civil War
Main article: Willemstan Civil War
Sean and the Willemstan Nationalists lost the Willemstan Civil War, in which he and his supporters attempted to retake control of the server.

In January 2022, Sean publicly declared that he planned to destabilize Willemstan by claiming the recent election was stolen from Kendal Hampton, who came in second place by only five points. Sean was sent to the Willemstan Salt Mine within hours by Dictator Izzy and Dictator Alexandra, before he could even begin his plans. This quickly unfolded into a great controversy. Some citizens began to protest his imprisonment, under the hashtag "#FreeSean". Some government instability occurred during the controversy, with Charlie Nolan demoting himself from General, and Andrew Meyer getting reprimanded for his involvement in a plot to break Sean out of the salt mines, which temporarily succeeded.
