Welcome to the geofictician wiki.
As foreign minister, she was highly respected both within the Ardispherian government as well as the international community, proving both effective and the consummate diplomat. Her period as prime minister was less successful - it was only time she stepped away from her diplomatic career into the wider fray of politics, and she was not adept in the more rough-and-tumble of domestic politics.
Her term at the AN was marked by the ongoing crises in Commonia, as well as several other world events that tested the AN's capacity for humanitarian work, but by all accounts she met the challenges well.
Since ending her term, she took a post at the Universidad Nacional in the international relations department, but mostly she serves in various think-tanks. She has also remained active on various single-purpose diplomatic appointments and mediating missions.
Early Life and Background
Ionescu was born to a typical Karolian-Ardispherian family in the strongly Románš community of the Au River Valley in Departamento del Sur. She spoke Románš at home but excelled at languages and when she graduated high school with honors in not just Románš and Castellanese but also Ingerish and Gohangukian, she was recruited for a fast-track career as a military translator. She attended the Universidad Militar as a cadet, and graduated with degrees in linguistics and international relations in 1974, and transitioned into active duty.
