The Ayenee Imperial Empire (AIE) was formed 242 years ago out of a military state that declared itself independent from the world. Located in the northern continent of Zoir, it’s capital, Nerima, resides in what is known today as the desolate Calm Lands. A series of events years earlier lead to a successful military coup and a new Stratocracy style governmental body was established. The other territories of the world recognized their new sovereignty and agreed upon world peace, but the AIE’s desire to expand would inevitably change that.

HISTORY

Three years after its foundation, the AIE started its first military campaign. It’s aim was to conqour it’s southern neighbors and eventually the entire continent itself. The conflict started as the AIE formed a global police force and began securing its interests across Zoir. Large amounts of natural resources in the Nifl mountain ranges were disputed over by a southern alliance of smaller countries and the encroaching Empire. Once they refused to sell any of their resources to the invading AIE forces, skirmishes turned into invasions. Each territory was incorporated into whole of the Empire until there were no more borders. Towns were subjugated and became permenant additions to a growing imperial military.

TERRITORY

At the height of the Empire’s rule, it commanded the entire continent of Zoir, its outlying territories within the western hemisphere and the continent of Tenaria, and had expanded east into parts of the continents of Kelindil and Rhydin. For the most part, their rule went unopposed except for the minor resistence within outlying towns and newly absorbed territories. A few places over the centuries have succeeded in remaining outside of Imperial influence. One in particular now known as the Abbadon Wastes, proved impossible for the AIE to control.

STRUCTURE

The Empire is ruled and controlled by –emperor goes here–, AIE consists of a nominal parliamentary republic, where parliment is admittedly used as a facade to distract from an authoritarian regime. The government is almost completely centralized by the military, and aside from positions held by corporate special interests, the rest are occupied by military personnel.

BELIEFS

In the AIE, only current military and prior veterans are afforded rights. For example, only those who complete their terms of Imperial service can vote. Other forms of service to the Empire may also grant representation and rights of citizenship, though most are not as held in high stature as those that govern. It is believed that only those who are willing to dedicate and sacrifice their lives for the behalf of AIE and it’s interests are fit to have a role in society.
