Alpes a Septentrionali Imperium
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 Kingdom of the Netherlands, on the south by The Kingdom of Spain, by the east by German Confederacy and on the west by the Atlantic. NATION covers 17,000,000 square kilometers and has an estimated population of POPULATION. NATION comprises of 44 provinces and 121 departments.
In its version of history, the Alpeian French Empire considers itself to be one of the world's premier and colonial powers. Beginning in the Mid 19th Century, during a period known as the Second French Period for the dominance of the French and Bonapartes over the Alpeian Kingdom. The Empire had begun making colonial inroads in Africa and East Asia, as well as the reorganization of the North American Colonies. The Empire was finally unified into one state after numerous failures by the French state in 1870 and 1871 that drastically affected the Empire's influence in Europe.
The origin of the name Alpes a Septentrionali Imperium is believed to have come from quite a few sources and eventd. First, the Alpes part of the name simply refers to the United Kingdom of the Alpes and other Alpeian Kingdoms of the Alpes. This term was most likely used in the form of the Alpes by King Matthaeus I Alpibicus, of the First Line of Gallo-Roman kings of Alpes and Burgundy, as well as where the name Matthieu first originally entered the Imperial Family. He officially adopted the title Rex Alpium in 508 well Co-King of the Kingdom of Burgundy and the Alpes. As for the Septentrionali Imperium part of the name, this originated from an honorific employed all the way back in the times of the Gallo-Roman and Burgudina Diarchy. The Honorific granted to them by an early pope was something along the lines of Imperator Romanorum Septentrionalium/Septentrionalis, or Emperor of the Northern Romans/Emperor of Romans in the North. The reason for this title was among other things something granted to Servus I as a claim for him to reconquer former Roman territory in Gaul. The title eventually evolved into its modern form of Imperator Terrarum Septentrionalis, or Emperor of the Northern Lands. This is where the nation's name today means something along the lines of Alps and the North Empire or The North ALpeian Empire.
The Use of the following term, "The Empire of the Alpes and French" has also become official and acceptable for use. It is becoming more common in use.
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 Gallo-Roman, as well as remaining Gallic groups that had lived in the area for generations, had not anticipated the Western Roman Empire to let so many barbarians such. They feared future invasions where they would be fully conquered by germanic barbarians. Some among them also feared the death of the Celtic and Roman religion in the area. They originally tried to appeal to the Western Roman Emperor at the time, Valentinian III, but they found him to be unable to do much with him and the legions dealing with unsuccessfully with Germanic and Hunnic Invasion. In 455 with the death of the Emperor and an incompetent one following him, a local prefect under the name Marcus Septimus Maximianus Alpinicus declared himself King Maximianus of the Helvetii and Sequani, Lord of the Alpini. But he did briefly forfeit his self proclaimed throne to rejoin the empire.
538-800 A.D.- The Remainders of the Kingdom of the Alpes and Burgundy is conquered and absorbed by the Merogavian Franks. The Gallo-Roman House of Alpes begins to fade into obscurity, marrying and integrating themselves into Frankish society and nobility. Some records from the time though do indicate that the descendants of the original house had gained many postings and allods through the Frankish Kingdom of Burgundy and the Gauls. Some better known and confirmed ones being Geneva and the surrounding territories and throughout Burgundy. They also amassed territories in Provence with the county of Arles and surrounding smaller appointments and estates. But other than this, it is thought the early Alpeias as they would later call themselves during this period did there best to keep to ruling there spread out estates in Burgundy and Provence and to prove there loyalty and worth to the Frankish Kings. They were known to be loyal but reserved and ruling with little ambition to expand their estates beyond the boundaries given to them by the Merogavian and eventually Karlings. By the time of the rule of Charlemagne
The Renaissance and Age of Empires
When the civil war was officially ended in 1848(all combat ceased after 1840) Emperor Henri V was victorious as was the monarchy. Things had changed much after the civil war, most notable being the final union between the Kingdom of Alpes and the Kingdom of France as the Imperium.
The Core of the Alpeian Empire is predominantly found in Western Europe, more specifically the empire is primarily located in the historical region of Gaul and bounded by a number of rivers and mountain ranges. This area is known offically as la Grand Métropole, due to its position as the center of the Empire. The Atlantic and The Channel are the
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 this a new act of government has put many forests under the protection of the government.
The Offical Religion of the Alpes a Septentrionali Imperium is the Roman Catholic Church, but due to the Imperium size and spread across the world, there are numerous minority faiths across it.
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. Arabs and some of the Berber peoples are also considered to be in this group. Some scientists in our era have also tried to break up the Caucasian race into multiple sub-races, but they have yet to gain much official scientific proof.
Native Americans/Polynesians are one of the smaller groups in the empire with large portions of them being wiped out from the colonization of the Americas and pacific. 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, mostly coming from the colonies in western Africa. Many have come to Europe for better work and opportunity, only to find themselves in tenants and even more oppressed than before. But some such as the Dumas family have risen up in the ranks.
Then comes the people of India and Indochina who make up a large last percent in this. They aren't of high standing in the imperial system simply being colonial subjects for labor and factory work. Barely any have risen above levels of poverty, even in their own lands. They form the bulk of independence movements for the colonial states of the Imperium.

The Alpes a Septentrionali Imperium, well being a de jure constitutional monarchy, has been under a de facto absolute monarchy since the Edict of 1926/Grand Parliemtnary Coup of 1938 when Empereur-Roi issued a proclamation dissolving parliament and implementing the Imperial Senate. Because of this, the monarch as executive and head of state has filled the role of head of government for now and quite possibly forever. But even before the Alpes drift into true absolutism, Its monarchs have always held considerable power over governmental affairs. The Judicial system of Alpes is the Imperial Tribunal which is charged with managing court and making sure laws are enforced. The Imperial Senate, a complex body, has retaken the role of the imperial legislative body, a position held since the time of the Lord-Protector and Self-Proclaimed Emperor Napoleon.
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 select an heir. (Or if the monarch is already dead, a new monarch is elected.) The monarch themselves is titled as of the constitutional amendment created by Matthieu XV, Empereur-Roi. The Monarch also convenes with the Imperial Privy Council, which is made up of all the major First Lords, Government Officials, Nobles, and Military Men.
The Judicial branch of the Empire is the Imperial Tribunal, which in its self is what actually determines non-noble subdivisions and is 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
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 Imperial Military is massive. Owing to the fact that all young men are legally forced to conscript, the military has two main subdivisions. The land force, the Imperial Army, and the sea force, the Imperial Navy.

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.
Much of the Art of the IMperium was inspired by Rome and the surrounding styles of the Renaissance mostly from Italy and the Low Counties. Early Artists such as Jean Fouquet and Sebastin la Vallée(Fictional) were believed to have traveled to Italy themselves to study its art. The change and diversity of styles of art in Alpes were similar to that of France, with the beginning of Alpeian art being in the Gothic style in the 13th century. During the recanisannce there was a large painting
Beginning in the Middle Ages, many nobles began the funding of or construction of castles and other structures. The main goal of these projects was originally for regional defense and power. But as the kings of Alpes and France began to centralize their rule, as well as the advent of new weapons of war, nobles stopped building these armed fortifications and instead began building them to be pleasing or confirming with an architectural style.
