#45 ???

Few records survive regarding this period of time, and as such there isn't much known about the 45th president of the United States, apart from these scant facts: Though he earned the most votes in the electoral college, he lost the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes; at the time of his election he was the oldest, and wealthiest, president to date; and until his swearing-in he had never held a job in public service.

Some legends say that he was a brutish, small-minded worshiper of the Etruscan god Orcus, while others tell that he was a partially lobotomized puppet ruler controlled by a series of self-aware, coded algorithms.

 Still other tales reveal that he was a kind of parasitic honey fungus that had been lurking across nearly 2,400 acres of soil in the Blue Mountains of Oregon, before budding a humanoid avatar that would, through a series of unlikely events, eventually become the 45th president of the United States.

He was said to live in a great golden tower or dome, and during his administration the country split into ten thousand tribes of peoploids that scavenged the ruined cities like packs of dogs.
