The Empire of the Isles
Empire of the Isles
The Empire of the Isles is the governing body over the 8 Isles and 11 Provinces that make up the Mider_Island
The Empire is run by a single elected Emperor, who will rule until his death.
The Emperor is elected by a council made up of the 11 heads of the 11 Providence, all of which were eligible candidates for the position.
The current and first Emperor, Lambert of Carnan, was elected after uniting the different island providence using a newly commissioned fleet of ships to create a working trade network.
After taking the throne as the Governor of Carnan, Lambert began leading a campaign to unite all the islands and governing factions into one government. Having grown up in Carnan, whose isolation has historically resulted in death and famine during the stormy seasons, Lambert stated that he 'desired to prevent the preventable deaths of thousands of people.'
After a struggling campaign for more than 15 years, Lambert succeeded and was unanimously elected to serve as the first emperor.
The Empire has so far celebrated 13 years of a happier and more enlightened period.
