Alpes a Septentrionali Imperium

Link to the Maps overview, go check it out if you want. Actually yeah just check it out, if gives the history of this nation pretty much

The Grand Empire of Alpes a Septentrionali Imperium commonly called Alpes a Septentrionali Imperium is an absolute monarchy/semi-constitutional monarchy in Europe and colonies on almost every continent. It is bordered on the north by OTHER-NATION, on the south by OTHER-NATION, by the east by OTHER-NATION and on the west by OTHER-NATION. NATION covers 17,000,000 square kilometers and has an estimated population of POPULATION. NATION comprises of 147 provinces and 236 departments and 37 Colonies.



The origin of the name Alpes a Septentrionali Imperium is believed to have come from the first Christian coronation of an alpine king. In 603 Pope Gregory Crowned King of the Alpes Merovech Sigismund as king of the Alpes and emperor of the lands north of them. King Merovech being so pleased by being made an emperor converted his kingdom to Christianity and change the language of government to Latin. This is where the name came from it meaning Alpes and North empire.

The standard way to refer to a citizen of the Alpes a Septentrionali imperium is as "Alpeian."


The history of Alpes is believed to have started in 448 CE sometime after the Burgundians settled Maxima Sequanorum. The Gaulic and Celtic tribes and Romans that had lived there for generations had not appreciated that the Roman empire didn't defend them from barbarians but instead let them settle the land the had lived on for generations. They also feared the death of the Celtic and Roman religion in the area.

So they decided to form a federation in modern terms around lake Vaud in 457. The newly formed Alpini Federation functioned much like the Roman republic with it having a senate made up patricians. This changed in 461 with the power of the western Roman empire waning a the Burgundians possibly getting ready to invade, the Senate decided to make a Celtic-Roman general by the name of Marcus Dagomarus the Rex Alpini or King of the Alpini. He died a few years later in 467 because of what was believed to be tuberculosis. He was succeeded by his son Augustus Breanainn who succeeded to the throne, only for his kingdom to be found in a state of war with the Burgundians. This war lasted for many years with it even killing 2 kings of Alpes. But it ended in 482 with a victory for Alpes and the Declaration of the Kingdom of the Alpini and Burgundians. This kingdom was mostly disorganized with the Burgundians having only agreed to the kingdom as they would have been slaughtered otherwise and the Alpeians who thought they would have been on top and able to keep all their traditions and in there thought the traditions of Rome alive and well. But they where in stark contrast with the Alpini people themselves who well had romanized still kept to there roots and even religion. Eventually, they managed to win out in the end with the death of King Domitius and decided to crown a more Alpini cousin of the first king in 495. And thus began the reign of the semi-legendary founder of Alpes.

King Froid was his name. Froid was Born into a more native branch of the dark ages royal family. He was raised in the Caesarian Branch of the old Alpini religion(This branch was considered the romanized branch). But in 483 when he joined the Legio Dagomani and became exposed to the true traditions of his people. When he left the military of his nation in 490 after his successful conquering of Provence. This is where he began his rulership with him being noted at the time. Along with that, he brought the Alpini religion or at least a combination of the traditional branch and roman branch. When Domitius the last true roman king died in 494, the council of the realm was convened to crown a new king of the Alpini and Burgundians. The Council took almost a full year to decide on a king, and well the actual records of the events have been lost to history, all that is known was that they crowned Froid. Believing he'd be a safe king.


The Imperium is mostly located in Europe with colonies around the world in Africa, Asia, and North America. The core parts of the Imperium are located in western and central Europe with it having ports on the Mediterranean, English Channel, Baltic, and the Bay of Biscay. The farthest north the Core of the Imperium goes is into the Jutland peninsula with the farthest south the core goes is the island of Malta in the Mediterranean. The empire is divided usually into four zones, Germany in central Europe, Gallia in western Europe, Alpes in the mountainous areas of Europe dividing Gaul from Italy and central Europe, and Italy and the Mediterranean for lands in southern Europe.

The Imperium is mostly made up of Humid forests with warm summers. Areas in the south have Mediterranean climates with warmer dryer summers than areas up north. There are also areas of scrublands in the south and in the middle of the Imperium is The Kingdom of the Alpes and Mountains which are usually cold and dry all year with most of the lands north of it having cold long winters which are most of the time wet snowy ones. Areas south of the Alpes don't usually have that cold of winters but instead have cool dry winters. The Imperium is classified as having a mostly oceanic and humid continental climate with its colonies being much different stories

The environment of Alpes is in an interesting condition. It supports many forests being 40 percent forest and mountain ranges are in okay condition. Its environment is currently being protected by multiple government departments. It is also being protected by the emperor, with many of his estates being converted into national parks and reverse, and along with with this a new act of government has put many forests under the protection of the government.







In Alpes well, the Caucasian race is the ruling class and the main race to populate the core parts of the empire it is actually the minority in Alpes if you compare it to the colonial populate. They are mostly centered in Europe and the North American colonies and making up only 30% of the population

Native Americans/Polynesians are one of the smaller groups in the empire with large portions of them being wiped out from colonization. They make up about 8% of the population.

Up next are the African peoples of the empire who make up a large portion of the empire. But well they are large in population, they have fewer rights than the Arabs and even Native Americans in the empire, with them being of low-standing and very few in the nobility. They make up around 37 percent of the population

Alpes is under the governance of a semi-constitutional monarchy. The monarch is the executive with numerous powers, the parliament is the legislative body with it being used to approve laws created by the monarch. The Judicial system of Alpes is the Imperial Tribunal which is charged with managing court and making sure laws are enforced.

The powers of the monarchy are many, something not seen much of anywhere in the world anymore. The main powers and purposes of the monarchy are to create bills of government and law; and or approve bills of government and law, give input and approve budgets, appoint/dismiss ministers and lords, and finally to administer the nation as they see fit. But the monarch does have many more powers including one to disband the entirety of government excluding the monarchy, the rest of there powers are listed in the constitution. The order of appointment to the position of monarch is hereditary, with the successor usually being the first child of the last monarch. But in rare cases when a monarch is without an heir the imperial family will convene to elect an heir.(Or if the monarch is already dead, a new monarch is elected.) The monarch themselves is actually titled as of the constitutional amendment created by Matthieu XV, Empereur-Roi.

The Judicial branch of the Empire is the Imperial Tribunal, which in its self is what actually determines non-noble subdivisions and is actually quite weak. The Tribunal's official purpose is to enforce, review, and integrate the laws of the empire. The Tribunal itself has three sections. All of these are answerable to the Grand Tribunal(Governmental supreme court) and Tribunal Royal(Monarchial supreme court).

The Civil Tribunal is charged with maintaining and enforcing the laws of the empire for citizens and the Provinces. On a note of Provinces, it is, in fact, the body that with input and approval of the monarch, creates the provinces and. With them originally being the governing body in those provinces(excluding nobility who follow a different system). But this right was revoked in 1598. They now only create the first local governments of the new provinces. The provinces they create are parlements which are more of judicial and greater governing areas, there are 51 in the entire empire. After that are Provinces which are governmental provinces where the courts simply enforce laws and order. There are 147 of them. And finally departments, which are the lowest level judicial and governmental subdivisions. There are 236 of them. (Insert reasons for corruptness and Weakness, Also subdivisions it creates). The High courts

Martial Tribunal

Neighborhood tribunals.

These are unofficial tribunals, with them being formed by local decree and power. They are usually formed by low-level nobles, mafias, lawmen, and powerful citizens. They basically perform the powers of the Civil Tribunal in its absence and small claims courts.

The Imperium has almost always valued and encouraged culture and the arts. Starting in around the 16th century, about the same time as the Viceroyalty of Gallia(France, was yet to be fully integrated into the imperium.But a personal union with it and Alpes had been going on for hundreds of years ) started to actively support artists and the like in there work. Today The Alpes a Septentrionali Imperium's culture is one of the pinnacles of western culture worldwide.

Alpeian culture can mostly be described as extremely similar to french culture at large. From the appreciation of the same artists and styles. to extremely similar architecture and literature, the influence and mixing of french culture can be seen throughout. But unlike french culture, Alpeian culture heavily stresses the importance and status of nobility and monarchy. usually extremely subtly.

The Department of Culture founded in 1902(or if you live in the Kingdom of Gallia, 1947) has been the current example of the regime's support of culture throughout the Imperium. This is done through the subsidizing of artists, and the caretaking of the 92,833 museums throughout the Imperium. Along with that, the department and other organizations take care of the many historical buildings and monuments throughout the empire.
