Mike Sauter President

Mike was a general and war hero who reached the Presidency of CUDA in 2012. It would be 35 years before he left office, and it took nothing less than the Mexican Revolution to dislodge him. Sauter was a special sort of dictator, as historians today still argue whether he was one of CUDA's best or worst presidents ever. His regime was quite corrupt and his friends became very wealthy at the expense of the poor, but there is no denying that CUDA made great steps forward under his rule.

Michelle Taylor Secretary

There is no theory of evolution. Just a list of animals Michelle allows to live.

Before they met Michelle, the Black Eyed Peas were simply known as "The Peas."

There used to be a bridge named after her, but the name was changed because no one crosses Michelle and lives.

The most beautiful girl I ever met, not because of her physical beauty but the beauty of her character and who she is.  Even though she was fighting leukemia and fighting various things, she always found time to serve someone else.

Picture of Sarah Powers

Sarah Powers Social Media Coordinator

The details of Sarah's life are quite inconsequential... very well, where do I begin? Her father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. Her mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. Sarah's father would womanize, he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. Her childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring she'd make meat helmets. When Sarah was insolent she was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds- pretty standard really.
