Religion

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.

Race
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.

Government

The Alpes a Septentrionali Imperium is a Parliamentary Semi-Constinunational Monarchy, with the Monarch acting as both a powerful executive and moderator of government, but sharing power with a an appointed prime minister and semi-elective legislature.

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

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.

Foreign Relations and Military

DESCRIBE DIPLOMACY

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.

Culture

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.

1. Art

Franco-Alpeians have always been a people of art, with art pieces of all different forms, types, or styles being coming place throughout the empire. With artwork having been a central facet to Alpeian Culture as far back as the neolithic era. Along with this, the Empire has itself been the premier breeding ground and birthplace of numerous styles for hundreds of years now. Well, some things might be suppressed in the empire, Art has and will never be one of them.

2. Architecture

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.
