The Holy Terran Empire was founded in November of 2013, with the first Emperor being sworn in on the 12th of December 2013. This date is now a national holiday.
The name of the empire was highly debated during it's early months, with more than thirty names coming and going before the name "The Holy Terran Empire" was agreed upon by a majority of the Noble Council at 2:30 pm on the 22nd of July 2014.
The Empire was formed in November of 2013 by five friends, William Cord, Owen Graham, Adam Hidalgo, Tyree Ross and Isaac Rodriguez, after being brought before the group as a simple idea by William Cord, the first, and current, Emperor.
Government & Politics
The government of the Empire is an Elective Monarchy with a landed and hereditary nobility, similar to the structure of the Holy Roman Empire, except in that any citizen can be elected as the Emperor and every citizen has the right to vote as to who should become Emperor.
Emperors rule for life.
Only the Emperor can create landed noble titles, although regional governors can create unlanded noble titles as they see fit, and landed noble titles if the Emperor condones it.
On the 29th of july 2014, William Cord made Owen Graham acting Emperor for one week in honor of his birthday celebrations. He enacted the "Bloodbowl" holiday, where, on the 31st of July, the Empire will host a combat arena duel where people enter an arena and battle until only one remains standing.
Law & Order
Having only a small population of 7 registered citizens, no crimes have yet been committed.
Currently, the military doubles as the police force of the Empire. When crimes are committed, they are brought before either the Emperor himself or the Noble Council for judgment.
The Holy Terran Empire promotes peace with all other nations but has no fear of going to war.
