Paul Kruger was the first president of Guffingford after independence. He was a wise but dangerous man who wasn't afraid of using scare tactics against the civillian population to attain his goals. Under his reign the economy got a firm boost at the expense of education and healthcare. Today Paul Kruger's seen as a national hero who teached Knootoss post-colonial nations can take perfectly good care of themselves.
