His Highness Thomas Bartholomew Iqmail O'Neill, the 7th Count of Modbury and Co-Prince of South Hams is the seventh and incumbent Count of Modbury, Co-Prince of South Hams and leader of the Imperial Pi Party of Modbury.
The Count was spawned in the hellish fires of Mount Modbury in 40,000,000 BC, whereupon he consumed all but one of his siblings (the estranged heir apparent to the Countship, Charles Theodore Muhammad O'Neill).
The Journey of Discovery
The Count set out on a journey to a nearby village in which he and his brother could begin to rebuild forces capable of world domination. At some point during their journey, they met two wise old men, known only by the name Maetlande and Haringtonne. It is believed that the Count became adept in the skill of mathematics, learning from Maetlande and, at the same time, that his brother became learned in the art of science. It was at this point that it is thought the two brothers went their separate ways.
The 39,000,000 Year War
The two brothers then waged a war encompassing the whole globe, lasting for more than 39,00,000 years. The war was only ended by interventions from the gods told of in Modburian folklore - Petit, Bowden and Futcher. That which was swift with hand, Petit, brought the two brothers apart; that which was swift with mouth, Bowden, scolded the brothers and calmed them; that which is swift with eyes, Futcher, wrought destruction on the wasteland, subsequently splitting the supercontinent of Pangaea into the continents as we know them today.
Thus, the brothers came to the only remaining town in the area, Modbury. Survivors in the village rebelled and moved north-east, to a prime location near a fast-flowing river whereupon they formed the rival town of London.
Nonetheless, in 1172, the Count and his brother set about overthrowing their father, Patrick Creosote Ahmed O'Neill, the 6th Count of Modbury, as leader of the Sixth Republic and installing a new government. The Seventh Republic was going to bring to new hope to the town, by populating the town by way of asexual reproduction.
Patrick tried to restore power in a Coup d'état the following year, however this failed. This led to the Count of Modbury expelling his father from the Republic. Decisive action was taken by the Count; the short lived Seventh Republic was declared defunct, with the state being reogranised into the Imperial Kingdom of Modbury. The Imperial Pi Party of Modbuy was formed.
By the year 1173, the population was at an all-time high of thirty.
The Count in Power
With the formation of Imperial Modbury, the state would see great change, from peace to violent blood shed, sparked by different political tensions.
In the year 1400 war once again broke out in the area, with the Count's brother breaking the millennia-old truce and waging war on the all-powerful Count. The Scientists, aligned to Charles wiped out all but four of the Mathematician force, followers of the Count.
They then struck back, announcing a system of ethnic cleansing. The process, named Protocol Cubic, was intended to wipe out the race of scientists who were loyal to Charles. The violent blood shed that ensued was led personally by the Count himself, and the movement was responsible for killing all but two Scientists.
Thus, on December 9 1401 the Mathematicians finally stopped the Scientist force, by capturing Charles mating partner, Joseph Montgomery Natale, and forcing him into submission. So ended the First Battle of Modbury.
But, just five years later, with the population of Modbury back to its high level, the second Battle of Modbury occurred. However, the Scientist uprising was quickly put flight to by the Mathematician force, which outnumbered the enemy four to one. Another victory for the Count was proclaimed when the Scientists ran out of potatoes to throw and fled Modbury. Much merriment ensued.
The Count now rules over Modbury as leader of the Imperial Pi Party of Modbury, and is also the Co-Prince of South Hams (a position he holds in conjunction with the 54th Count of South Brent). His most recent work has included the number Pi to ten billion decimal places (which is purported to have taken the Count four seconds to calculate) and a self-help manual entitled "Capital Punishment for Dummies".
