Albia's former Home Minister. A lifelong member of the Krep Party and former leader of Ztil's town council, Mr Loon was once known as a leftwing firebrand but later became content to be seen as being somewhat to the right of centre, provided the centre in question is itself somewhat to the right of Genghis Khan. Mr Loon is a man of deep religious faith, which he tries to put into effect in his daily life, such as by his recent attempts to re-introduce stoning as a penalty for minor infringements of the penal code.
He resigned in December 2004, following controversy over visas(*) and, perhaps more importantly, his decision to attack his fellow ministers as, inter alia, "a bunch of useless idiots who couldn't organise a public stoning in a quarry"(**). Despite this, he returned to the Cabinet following the May 2005 elections as Minister for Pensions, a position he managed to hold down for a remarkable six months before being involuntarily resigned due to a conflict of interest, presumably between himself and the Albian public.
