Upon Prime Minister Azreel's sudden departure from the Swiss, and following Lord Bailey Kroshbon's appointment to Prime Minister via election, he was elevated to Minister of Defense by Bailey, succeeding him. Following his appointment, he selected Sir Will Kohleschmied as his right-hand man and Director of War. He served as Minister of Defense for roughly two and a half months, striving to revamp the military.
During his time as Minister of Defense, he was named Co-Guildmaster alongside Princess Rose Kroshbon to aid with in-game managerial affairs. He also betrothed himself to Lady Elizabeth Kohleschmied (at the time Lady Li Merian) on 21 September 1751. He remains Co-Guildmaster and Lady Elizabeth Kohleschmied remains his wife.
Following Princess Rose Kroshbon's departure, he assumed her previous position as Minister of State, which he currently holds. Due to his loyalty in the eyes of the King, he was granted the title of Chief Advisor, succeeding Princess Rose and serving on his Majesty's advisory cabinet, alongside Vice Advisor Lord Benjamin Wolfe.
In the absence of Lord Bailey Kroshbon, he has assumed a large amount of the Prime Minister's duties, serving as a "de facto" Prime Minister. During Princess Rose Kroshbon's time with the guild, Sir Alexander served officially as the fourth-in-command, with the Prime Minister, the Crown Princess, and the King above him. Due to Bailey's absence and Rose's departure from the Swiss, he has been elevated to, and serves as, second-in-command.
His biggest contribution to the nation thus far has been his involvement in the Swiss-Ottoman protectorate. Discussing with Sultan Iksender Osman about his future plans for his nation, he was able to convince Iksender to retain his nation, and further negotiations resulted in Switzerland becoming the Ottoman Empire's protectorate. This was a significant political advance for the Swiss.
