From my story "Wasteland" i present you the Queen of hearts, Vermillon, she's 23 years old and kind of creepy/demented, but a good queen nonetheless.
In Wasteland there are 3/4 kings, the system goes like this, the Red queen/king rules the north, while the White queen/king rules the south. The East is ruled by the Hatter, Mercurius, and his organitazion, which is like a mafia, and the West, which is a place for the "remnants", is ruled by an uknown person, the West is a place for people that don't fit in any of the 3 cities, you could call it the slums if you wish.
Anyone can be a king or queen, since the system is like this: every year, a battle is set, kind of like a competition, the strongest one, the one to be victorious, will have the right to rule, since the battle is set for every year, the ruler changes, and the country develops or falls depending on it, of course if the same person won next year, they will still be the ruler, until someone defeats them some year.
The previous kings were the twins, Dei and Dio, them, being kids, didn't know how to rule a country, and it was declining fast, but it was their only chance in a lifetime to rule, since, when someone defeats you, you can't present yourself to battle again, so they made stupid rules and acted like the brats they were, until the next battle was in order, they were defeated by Vermillon in battle, thus gaining the right to rule, she's been the queen for 5 years straight, no one has been able to beat her yet, after their defeat, the twins moved to the slums to live as peacfully as possible.
After becoming the queen, the red country began to flourish again, Vermillon was kind of sadistic and a bit demented, but she was intelligent nonetheless, and became a really good queen.
Wasteland, oc's (c) Me, do not use without permission, and yeah, they are bassed of Alice in wonderland, obviously, but are NOT them.
