She was never endorsed by any political party during her attempts to run for office due to her association with Ulysses Perry, it wasn't until her run for attorney general in 2012 that the Democratic-Republican Party of Sierra allowed her to file for candidacy under the party's name. In 2020 she registered with the Social Democrats of Sierra, becoming the first governor registered as such.

Born during the socially turbulent era of the 70's, the Perry's were a fairly liberal family, and raised their daughter with ambitions. In Styxie culture, sons are typically thrown a coming of age party for their fifteenth birthday, where the city is invited to clog, barbecue and sing, females typically shifted to the celebration of sweet sixteen, yet Allison requested the former rather than the latter.

First term[edit | edit source]
Perry, began working to secure federal funds to begin reinvestment into the infrastructure, originally by expanding the national interstate system for the increasing capacity of interprovincial travel between San Joaquin and San Francisco. After several petitions were left unnoticed, mostly on part due of lack of support from the Democratic-Republicans and the Royalists, she began enforcing commerce to undergo weight measures for entry into the province, even on national roads. Because of San Joaquin's important location between Northern Sierra and South Sierra, shipping companies began protesting the new special taxes, but the Parliament remained defiant against issuing funding to the state. Perry also increased the sales tax for out of provincial buyers of tobacco and alcohol, a practice which was typically done by out of state minors.
Through these means she increased the size of several major arteries of the San Joaquin highway system to better accommodate the flow through the Berkeley Hills into the cities of Richmond and Antioch and finally Bernheim. Completed in 2009, the highway was expanded two lanes going each way, with the highway supporting ten lanes of traffic. In Richmond, tolls were constructed to levy entrance fees to those coming from Oakland and across the San Francisco Bay. In 2010, with the completion of highway, Perry and the state legislature lowered the commerce weight tax. While the taxes mitigated some of the cost of the freeway, and Perry being wary of increasing taxes, developed the state sanctioned San Joaquin Public Services Retirement Fund which helped support San Joaquin government bonds during the recession. This Defined benefit pension plan would later to grow to become one of the largest pension funds in Sierra, accumulating nearly 11 billion dollars at the end of 2015.
In 2008, she commuted the sentences of 4,000 parolees who were incarcerated for drug usage, or improper transfers of alcohol. She expunged several thousands of recorded offensives involving alcohol, marijuana, and other substances at the University of Sierra, Bernheim campus. Coupled with the announcement of the massive pardoning, Perry announced that the province would return to capital punishment and would begin to execute the remaining 259 on death row. Among the first to be executed was Francis Dawson, a former defendant against Perry and her prosecution team in Marshall County, leading to a lengthy political scandal that eventually brought the national government into the fray.

On January 11th, 2017 a magnitude 7.8 earthquake occurred after a segment of the San Andreas fault rippling within the Inland Empire, with the center of devastation focused on the city of Pawnee, Inland Empire. With a staggering 5,270 deaths, the incident was one of the deadliest natural disasters to strike the Kingdom. Because of the significant damage in the region, and mass displacement, the San Joaquin along with other Styxie states formed the Interior Relief Plan, with the interior devoting most of its resources to restoring the Porciúncula region. Along with the relief package to assist those with shortages of food and water, Perry's government began the province's San Joaquin Relief Housing, which provided 70,000 citizens the ability to relocate to the region with a sizable subsidiary for eight months.
