Jeusev Jueves (pronounced /'ʝɜːzev ʝɜːvəz/ or /'ʝwe̞.vəz/), better known as Admiral (or Amiral) Jueves, was the Master President of South Vyvland and chairman of the ruling Nationalist Movement party from 1935 until his execution by Erman Sanker and the Luziycan Central Intelligence Agency in 1958 upon his overthrow. Jueves was known for his brutality, and is infamous in Vyvland and elsewhere for his many atrocities, including the expulsion of South Vyvland's Swedish community from 1942 to 1945, causing approximately 90,000 deaths.
Jueves was born in Bruferborg, in what is now Kafren-Grunir province, to a lone mother; his father deserted her during pregnancy. As such, he had a troubled childhood at a time when being born out of wedlock was viewed as uncouth, and was bullied and shunned by many teachers and pupils. However, he managed to achieve good grades in school, despite the death of his mother when Jeusev was 15. This led him to a year of living rough, before being compulsorily enlisted into the Vyvlander Navy due to his state.
Jueves was enlisted in the Vyvlander Navy in 1904, earning promotion to the rank of Lieutenant before quitting in 1916. However, he would later falsify documents to suggest he had been an admiral, which in the Vyvlander Navy is an upper-middle rank.
Jueves joined the small Nationalist Movement in 1914, at the age of 27. His skill as an orator was spotted early by those higher up in the party, and his hard work earned him promotions, despite his then-undesirable or shameful upbringing; he is seen as one of the main reasons for the development of the party in early-20th century Vyvlander politics. In 1927 he became the party's leader, after serving for five years as its General Secretary and as an MP. After this, he pushed for major reforms of the party, which, coupled with the economic downturn of the time, resulted in a major seat gain, culminating in the NM's gaining of 180 seats in the 1931 election to Parliament.
In February 1932, a large Nationalist Movement rally in Lyksdal clashed with mounted police, who trampled many of the rallyists before denying medical services from accessing the wounded, causing dozens of deaths. Jueves took it upon himself to declare a "state of national outrage" in an address the following day from his home in Jesel, in which he called for the "immediate mobilisation" of supporters of his party or opponents of the Vyvlander monarchy and establishment. This is seen as the start of the Vyvlander Civil War, which lasted for three years as the monarchists and democrats fought the opposing nationalists, who were led by Jueves. Neither side came to a conclusive victory, and as such representatives from nearby nations stepped in to partition the country in 1935. After the Accords of Nencia, Jueves became leader of the newly-formed state of South Vyvland, and immediately instated wide-ranging social reforms, including compulsory military service and the introduction of unpaid forced labour for the unemployed. He also reintroduced the death penalty for many small crimes and banned interracial marriage.
Jueves is best known, however, for his expulsion of the Swedish Vyvlanders from Vyvland in 1945, beginning with the 'Swedish Laws' in 1942, banning Swedish-speakers or ethnic Swedes from voting, owning large businesses and normal Vyvlander citizenship; instead, a new class of citizenship was created called 'Swedish Vyvlander citizenship', which significantly limited their rights. This progressed until the Swedes' full expulsion in 1945. In one week, Jueves ordered all Swedes to leave the country or be executed, and as such half of the total estimated population of 200,000 remaining Swedes died. Most Swedes left to Geadland or Luziyca, both of which have strong Swedish communities.
After this, Jueves continued to impose strict laws and punishments on Vyvland, although his power became less stable during the 1950s, when a series of coups significantly weakened his power, killing many of Jueves's closest supporters and advisors, most notably Jueves's deputy, Ianek Vrumeer, in 1953. Documents released in 2014 reveal these operations to have been orchestrated by the Central Intelligence Agency as part of Operation Korrigering, which was tasked with overthrowing Jueves. Jueves was subjected to internal criticism after his poor handling of the collapse of the Gaandal Dam in November 1953, which destabilised his power base within the Nationalist Movement. The tension mounted as the West Luziycan CIA began to oppose Jueves's rule in Vyvland, and on the 18th December 1954 Erman Sanker, Luziyca's choice for Master President, had been installed in a coup. Two days later, Jueves was shot in the head and thrown into the River Fule in Jesel during a public execution.
Jeusev married Iania Svencen, who was of partly Swedish extraction, in 1913. However, the couple's relationship was strained, and although she became pregnant three times during the marriage, he forced her to have an abortion twice, and killed the one son who was born. The second abortion led to complications in her uterus, causing her to struggle under immense pain which led to her characteristic uneven gait. In 1939 after a bitter disagreement with his wife, he shot her seventeen times in the head with a pistol, then buried her body in a metal coffin in a cesspit in Jesel. It has since been reburied. Jeusev's tense relationship with Iania is often seen as a reason for his persecution and expulsion of Swedish-speaking Vyvlanders.
Much of this information was actively covered up by the Sanker government due to fears that it would destabilise the regime. However, details of Jueves's relationship with his wife were released one week after Sanker's death in October 1980 by Johan Vesger on Sbrik!, a Strossen-based radio talk show. The only previous hint of this relationship was a mysterious Sanker interview in which he described himself as "a much better family man than Jueves" and then declined to elaborate on the situation. Since the first revelations, much more information regarding Jueves's personal life has come out into public knowledge.
Jueves is still viewed with great suspicion in Vyvland; among some, speaking his name is taboo, while he was officially excommunicated as a Vyvlander citizen by the government soon after reunification. Internationally, he is almost universally condemned, with the exception of a few areas and societies, especially in Nevanmaa where he has a mixed reputation. The expulsion of the Swedes caused economic and social problems to the areas in which they settled, predominantly in Leghel, which was forced to build thousands of houses through the Sveengham program to accommodate refugees.
