National Overview:
In the later days of the Solarian Empire, parts of modern day Emnia were known as Irmenia Occidentalis (literally "Western Irmenia") to contrast with the province of Irmenia Orientalis (literally "Eastern Irmenia" — most of which forms the modern Gaullican state of Irménie).

Irmenia Occidentalis was in those days rich in nonferrous metals such as copper, tin, lead, and silver. The province was particularly rich in glance, an important source of lead for Solarian water pipes.

Despite the economic advances of controlling the province, it was a difficult task to manage, as the local people, the Irmenii, had little in the way of loyalty to the Solarian empire. There was also little agricultural activity in the heavily forested region, severely limiting its productivity and

In order to combat this, a 3rd-century Solarian Emperor proposed a solution which was intended to simultaneously stimulate the economy of Irmenia Occidentalis while also dealing with another, unrelated issue elsewhere in the empire.

Over the course of a decade in the late 3rd century, a number of towns, villages, and hinterlands were resettled from the province of Transabaria (modern Tsabara) to the frontier of Irmenia Occidentalis. The majority of these resettled people spoke a language similar to Biblical Atudite, which they brought with them to Irmenia Occidentalis, introducing the language to Euclea.

The resettleds were given the majority of the benifits of Solarian citizenship as payment for their (likely involuntary) service to the Empire. This was intended to encourage assimilation and a sense of "Solarian-ness" among the settlers, but it had the opposite of its intended effect: after the "long walk north", distrust in the Imperial authority propagated widely among the resettleds as well as among their bretheren back in Transabaria. Public discontent arose where none existed before as fear spread about the possibility of forced transferral, causing a political and social crisis which may have ended the Empire outright had it not been for the deft political manoeuvring of the Emperor Bardus Gaullicus.

Despite the Empire's survival, the crisis had its consequences for the Imperial administration's hold over Irmenia Occidentalis. Memories of the crisis led future Emperors to neglect the province, passing up opportunities to develop infrastructure and bolster the regional economy. The policy of Solarianisation — by which the Empire encouraged its disparate subject peoples to assimilate into Solarian culture and society — had very little success in Irmenia Occidentalis, especially after the resettlement of the Transabarians, who instead became the dominant culture in the loosely-administered province.

The fall of the Solarian Empire saw the province of Irmenia Occidentalis fall into obscurity, with no records definitively mentioning the region or its people until the 7th century AD, when the "Princesses of Emnia" are mentioned as bringing tributes of the King of Gaullica. In the Liber Tractuum In Dominio Gaullicorum ("Book of Tracts [of land] in the Dominion of the Gaullicans") dated circa 950 AD mentions that

"In diebus Cunimundi regis dabant principissa gentis Emniana ad Verlegem tributa argenti annalia."
(In the days of King Cunemonde, the princesses of the Emnian nation gave annual tributes of silver to Verlois.)
