The Order of the Radiant Dawn

The oldest political party in the Empire. The order was founded as a secret society, prior to the establishment of the empire. It's goal was to subvert the newly established UN world government. The founding father of this order is His Majesty Matthew I, The first emperor of the united race of man. It was on a secret antarctic expedition that His Majesty discovered the secrets of faster-than-light interstellar travel and received a vision from God. It is said the Holy Apparition took the form of several deities of mythologies from around the world. In his vision, His Majesty asserts that the apparition took the forms of the Judeo-Christian God, Amaterasu, Amon-Ra, Jupiter, and Odin. It was at this moment that His Majesty learned Humanity had been chosen as the master race which would inherit the divine creation of the universe and that he was the man chosen to lead humanity to its destiny. This vision led to the Great Liberation war and the establishment of the Empire.

The core values of the party include: Nationalism, Faith, Loyalty to the Emperor, Militarism, Expansionism, Free and Fair Markets and Social Conservatism.

Membership is highly exclusive and is available only to those who joined prior to the foundation of the empire and to those who swear to, abide by, and successfully complete The Path of the Dawn. This program begins in middle school and ends upon graduating university with a bachelor's degree. Members are guaranteed a government job and favored for appointment to high positions.



The Conservative Party

Touted as the party for the "Common Patriot" the Conservative party prides itself in its Loyalty to the emperor and dedication to public morality and social conservatism. Founded by Elizabeth MacLeod in 2038 to partake in the 2038 House of Commons Election, originally winning 113 seats, in what was then a much smaller House of Commons.

The core values of the party include: Social Conservatism, Nationalism, Loyalty to the Emperor and protection from small businesses.

Membership to the Conservative Party is much less exclusive than it is for the Order of the Radiant Dawn and requires only an oath of loyalty to the emperor and the payment of party dues on a yearly basis.


The Imperial Vanguard


The most fanatical party in the Empire. Founded by Lt. Col. Akira Ito in 2043, this party is known for its extreme militarism and bloodthirsty foreign policy.

The core values of this party include: militarism, ultra-nationalism, expansionism, fanatical loyalty to the emperor, social conservatism and traditionalism.

Membership to this party is exclusive to members and veterans of the military. Members re-swear their oaths of loyalty to the emperor and pay party dues on a yearly basis.
