Civilisation Index


Tier: 9 - Wise Wanderer (FT)
Tier 9 societies have begun to unravel the very fabric of physics. Reactionless drives, utilisation of zero-point energy, energy shields, and/or FTL weapons systems may be utilised. FTL communications not involving the use of ships likely exists. Cybernetic or Genetic enhancements have likely rendered baseline members of the civilization's species obsolete. Construction of Megastructures such as Dyson Spheres is possible, but likely extremely difficult or impractical. It may be possible to destroy whole planets with some weapons.
Level: 0 - Inept
Species of this rank have no magical abilities to speak of.
Type: 9 - Galactic Guardian
The home galaxy of this civilisation is heavily influenced by the actions of it. Interstellar empires regularly rise and fall at a Type 9's whims, and most advanced life in the home galaxy has at least heard rumours of the Type 9. A few civilisations in other galaxies may be aware of the Type 9.
Special Notes about your civilisation: Type 9 is chosen very lightly, as whilst Athralia may be the most powerful nation in its galaxy, it is not able to influence the Milky Way in its entirety. Additionally, whilst the nation is classed as Level 0 and "Inept", this is not entirely accurate due to the fact that this index does not take into account psionic abilities. In actuality, a small number of Athralians are able to utilise the psionic potential inherent in their species. Whilst all Athralians have this potential, only an extremely small minority, through rigorous and exhausting training, have the capabilities to harness this. These psionic abilities will be detailed in a separate factbook.

Your nation's full name: The Athralian Confederation

Your nation's full population: ~6.42 trillion

Your nation's founding date (if you have one): 5th August, 980 AD

Your nation's type of government: Confederal Non-Partisan Constitutional Republic

How frequent does your government fight amongst each other? Do these internal conflicts regularly cause your government to fail in making important decisions? Extremely rarely. State governments may enter into disputes, but these are always quickly resolved by the Supreme Court of the Confederation. The non-partisan nature of the Athralian government limits political infighting, and the government never fails to make important decisions due to its use of direct democracy and referenda.

How economically-independent is your nation? Completely economically independent.

How many personnel are in your military? The Armed Forces of the Athralian Confederation consist of approximately 192.6 billion personnel. Of this number, only 11.556 billion are active personnel, whilst 148.302 billion make up the reserves, and 32.742 billion are paramilitary.

How many nations is your nation allied with? None, militarily, although the Confederation has entered into a defensive agreement with the United Nations of Earth in which both will aid each other in the event that they are attacked. This is mainly to protect the relatively primitive humanity from the ambitions of hostile aliens, however.

Just how big or small is your nation? Athralian territory covers roughly 40% of the explored Milky Way galaxy, although the overwhelming majority of this territory is uninhabited.

On a scale of 1-10, how prepared is your nation against natural disasters? 10.

What is the tech level of your nation? FT. The Athralians utilise zero-point energy, are capable of instantaneous travel and communication across even the vast distances of space, and possess extremely advanced genetic modification and cybernetic technologies, amongst many other things.

Does your nation have weapons of mass destruction? If so, how many weapons, and what are they? Yes. Athralian naval weaponry consists of kinetic shells and missile/torpedo systems that carry antimatter payloads, and all such munitions could be considered weapons of mass destruction. Additionally, the Vengeance-Class titans that act as the Athralian Naval Service's flagships each possess a spinal mounted superweapon named Oblivion. These weapons are essentially supersized naval railguns capable of completely annihilating nearly anything it hits with the devastating kinetic impact of its projectile and the subsequent detonation of said projectile's antimatter warhead, and this includes planets.

Has your nation colonised other planets or objects in space? Yes. As mentioned before, Athralia has colonised roughly 40% of the known galaxy.

Just how sanitary is your nation? Extremely sanitary, 10/10. Environmental pollution has been eliminated through the use of advanced technologies.

Any additional notes about your nation: The Athralian Confederation is a galactic superstate and the home of the Athralian species. The Athralian species is all-female, since the male extinction event nearly 1300 years ago, and reproduces through a form of in-vitro gametogenisis. More information can be found in my factbooks, if required.
