Selection Committee,
Hello, my name is Pyotr Alexeyevich Romanov, and I write this
letter to you in the hopes that you will consider me when choosing an
absolute ruler for your country, Kambi.
I believe that I am qualified for the position because I have proved
to be a competent absolute monarch in my previous job as Czar of
Russia. As the ruler of Russia, I succeeded in expanding territory,
creating a mighty army, and opening to country to other influences. I
believe that during my time in Russia, I showed that I had a particular
focus on the important aspects of a country, such as military, education,
and centralized government.
When I became to absolute monarch of Russia, I faced many
challenges, as Russia was very far behind the rest of the world. I sought
to change Russia by bringing in Western influences. I thought that
education was very important, so I made many educational reforms
that helped the people of Russia to expand their knowledge, especially
in the areas of navigation, math, medicine, engineering, and science.
Since many of these concepts were new to the Russian people, I hired
Europeans to come teach the subjects.
I made many other domestic reforms that shaped the daily life of
the Russian people. They helped to modernize Russia and help draw the
country out from our isolation. Some of these domestic reforms
included simplifying the alphabet, improving technology, as well as
reestablishing serfdom, which essentially ensured more soldiers and
laborers for the government.
A ruler that I often compare myself to is Philip II, because I believe
that we shared similar goals when we were made absolute monarchs.
Philip II sought to expand Spanish influence and strengthen the Catholic
Church, while I focused on strengthening Russia’s military, expanding
the country’s borders, and centralizing royal power. I believe that during
my time as Czar of Russia, I met most of the goals that I had set for
myself, while Philip II did not experience quite as much success. A prime
example would be the success of my military. As the Czar I built a
mighty army that won our long war with Sweden and helped the
country to expand its borders. Philip II, on the other hand, created a
massive armada to fight the English overseas. The armada was defeated
by the English, and this eventually led to the decline of Spanish naval
superiority.
As previously mentioned, I am very proud to have done so well in
expanding the Russian borders, increasing our land area. Philip II
initially wanted to spread Spanish influence, but his support for the
Catholic Church caused a revolt in the Netherlands, causing the
Netherlands to eventually declare their independence from Spain.
If you would like more detailed information about my past
experiences and my qualifications, feel free to reference my Facebook
page which should provide you with any necessary information. I look
forward to meeting with you to discuss this employment opportunity.
Thank you.
Sincerely,
Pyotr Alexeyevich Romanov
