In the main storyline of the game, Imperialist, there are thirty-three nations which are accessible by the player. Each nation has particular perks and quirks which are highlighted in the following article.
The Kingdom of Aeon (Aeonian: Munerch vol Aeon) is a larger nation in the northwest region of Eternite. The nation is located entirely upon the Aeonian peninsula, with the only other nation on the peninsula being Aeon North. This nation is among the top five most populated nations on the continent and, at the beginning of our story, seems to be going strong economy-wise. Its current biggest threat is the military strength of the Zodsan Empire which has announced plans to invade the nation.
The current monarch of the nation is named Nova. Nova is a descendant of a long line of monarchs to hold the throne in the Kingdom of Aeon. The approval rates of the current monarch are high, and military strength is high as a result. Despite this, there is little say in the lawmaking process by the people. The people tend to trust the judgment of their monarch.
The Empire of Aeon (Aeonian: Empiyere vol Aeon) is a larger nation in the northwest region of Eternite. The nation is located entirely upon the Aeonian peninsula, with the only other nation on the peninsula being Aeon North. This nation is among the top five most populated nations on the continent and, at the beginning of our story, seems to be going strong economy-wise. Its current biggest threat is the military strength of the Zodsan Empire which has announced plans to invade the nation.
The current emperor or empress of the nation is named Nova. They were appointed emperor by a high-ranking circle of politicians who were democratically elected into power. However, this is the only democratic element of the empire. Approval rating of the emperor is astoundingly low, though military strength and force is high. The emperor recently had announced plans for conquest of nearby nations, reportedly.
The Aeon Republic (Aeonian: Republich vol Aeon) is a larger nation in the northwest region of Eternite. The nation is located entirely upon the Aeonian peninsula, with the only other nation on the peninsula being Aeon North. This nation is among the top five most populated nations on the continent and, at the beginning of our story, seems to be going strong economy-wise. Its current biggest threat is the military strength of the Zodsan Empire which has announced plans to invade the nation.
The current president is named Nova. They were democratically elected in a recent presidential election in which voting results were close. However, Nova won this election due to their in-depth plans for dealing with the threat of Zodsa. Approval of the president is about 50-50, and military spending is very limited. These factors and more determine how the threat of Zodsa will be dealt with.
Democratic Republic of Aeon (Aeonian: Democtch Republich vol Aeon) is a larger nation in the northwest region of Eternite. The nation is located entirely upon the Aeonian peninsula, with the only other nation on the peninsula being Aeon North. This nation is among the top five most populated nations on the continent and, at the beginning of our story, seems to be going strong economy-wise. Its current biggest threat is the military strength of the Zodsan Empire which has announced plans to invade the nation.
The current prime minister is named Nova, who was democratically elected in a recent election. The margin of victory was in fact rather high, and thus the approval rating of the prime minister seems to be 65% or more. Social programs are commonly invested in by the prime minister's government, but military spending is in fact very low. The plan is to deal with the threat of Zodsa through peace treaties and negotiations.
The Anarchic Zone of Aeon (Aeonian: Anarch Zona vol Aeon) is an unestablished area in the northwest region of Eternite. The zone is located entirely upon the Aeonian peninsula, with the only nation on the peninsula being Aeon North. Despite being anarchic, this zone is among the top five most populated nations on the continent and. Its current biggest threat is the military strength of the Zodsan Empire which has announced plans to invade the region.
There is no official ruler, though the leader of an unofficial military force is named Nova. They plan to lead their military to protect their way of life and prevent the Zodsan Empire from making more territorial gains.
The capital city of Aeon is named Aeoncia, and has a population of about 2 million civilians. It is an inland city in the northwestern quarter of the country and is located in the Federal City province. However, the largest city in the nation is named Biallen and is located in the southeastern part of the country, on the shore. The city has a population of 4.5 million.
The official language spoken in Aeon is Aeonian at a federal level. It is said to be the first language of about 85% of civilians. Smaller languages in the country include Ranzhyv and Altaisan.
The Northern State of Aeon (Aeonian: Northech Stade vol Aeon) is a small nation located on the central north end of the Aeonian peninsula. It is the second most lowly populated nation on the continent of Eternite, and the smallest nation in size. The nation is considered a conservative republic. Aeon North formerly was a province of the nation of Aeon, though it seceded after a referendum and several political disputes with the federal government.
The federal government of Aeon had announced plans to recapture the province through nonviolent (or violent, depending on the head of state) means. President Abbott of Aeon North has said that he will stand his ground and not hesitate to send troops to their death to defend their sovereignty.
The capital city of Aeon North is named Nova Nicia, and has a population of about 19 thousand. Most of the civilians of the nation live in the capital, and there are few other established cities. The only recorded language to be spoken in Aeon North is Aeonian.
The Ranzhyv Islands (Ranzhyv: Tes Ilandes Ranzhivicas) are an archipelago of five major islands (and an estimated over a thousand smaller islands) located in the center of the Quallentian Gulf. Its central island is the most populated with 25 million civilians, while the other four have about 1 million apiece. The nation is very tropical, and considered a close ally to Aeon with a tilt of favorability to Aeon North.
The Ranzhyv Islands are considered a constitutional monarchy, and its most recently elected leader was Prime Minister Koolen. They claim neutrality to practically every internationally-based issue, though they also have pledged allegiance to the Peace Powers for additional military support.
The capital city and largest city of the Ranzhyv Islands is Enschees, with a population of 1.5 million civilians. The city has status as a province in Ranzhyv, known as Enschees Federal City (EFC). Enschees, alongside all the other ten largest cities in Ranzhyv, is located on the central island. The second largest city is in another Federal City province, and is named Stoikilos.
The official language spoken in the Ranzhyv Islands is Ranzhyv. The Ranzhyv sphere of influence, however, expands far beyond the islands and into parts of central-western Eternite ie. the Bovenlands.
Niedan is a small nation situated perfectly between four nations of varying cultures. Due to this, it is considered one of the melting pots of the Eternite continent, especially for the mixture of cultures in its region. Niedan has the highest population density in all of Eternite-- it fits 11 million citizens into its small land area.
Niedan is a traditional monarchy with a constitutional spin. The current monarch of Niedan is King Upton III, who is the descendant of a long line of Niedanic monarchs. Niedan still has a constitution and a democratic system unlike most monarchies, though it lacks a partisan leader. Its monarch complies to the democratic system.
The capital city in Niedan is named Northern Coast and is part of a larger metropolis area. Northern Coast has a population of 800 thousand civilians, though the largest city, Niedan City, is located in the same metropolis and has a population of 2 million. Cities in Niedan have ornate architecture and extensive public funding.
Niedan has three official languages due to its geographic position. These languages are: Aeonian, Ranzhyv, and Altaisan.
Altais is a nation which is similar to Niedan in many regards. It is about twice as large, though it has less population and more varied terrain. The eastern portion of Altais is filled with thick rainforests which cover a grand portion of the continent of Eternite.
Altais is a constitutional monarchy somewhat akin to that of Ranzhyv. Its monarch has higher power than its prime minister (its current monarch is Queen Ophelia IV). Unlike the typical monarchy, its monarch is elected democratically to serve for life. However, monarchs of similar families tend to be reelected more frequently than not.
The capital city of Altais is the city of Altais. This is also the nation's largest city, with a population of 1 million. However, the majority of the population of Altais lives in rural areas rather than urban areas. This leads to very hindered development in inner cities, thus there is increasing crime rate and poverty.
The official language of Altais is Altaisan.
Hazgel is a short, yet wide nation located between Niedan and Niraie, and to the east of Aeon-- only separated by a thin stretch of ocean. The nation is rather lowly populated due to being filled with thick rainforests that cover about 80% of the nation's land area.
Hazgel is a parliamentary republic. The current head of state is the chancellor, Whitcomb. Hazgel is somewhat uncountable as a nation, though it is considered the little sister nation to Aeon in many ways. They are Aeon's most dedicated ally in military and economic terms. Hazgel is a rather wealthy country due to industrial opportunity and low population to supply; however, they must import their work force.
The capital city of Hazgel is Sandpoint Bay, which ironically enough is not situated on the coast. Sandpoint Bay is an inland city located about 30 miles from the shore, and the city has a population of roughly 200 thousand.
The official language in Hazgel is Aeonian.
Niraie (Niraikan: Nōsrei) is one of the larger nations in central-north Eternite. Niraie has a large population and 80% of the population is located in the western 20% of the nation, closer to the coast. The eastern portion of the country is filled with the same set of thick rainforests enveloping Altais, Hazgel, and Vessna. In the very most eastern part of the country, there are mountains, forming the nation's borders with The Bovenlands.
Niraie is a one-party military dictatorship and advertises itself as such. The country is currently controlled by the empress, Yusawa. She is set on having full control over the country of Mikro which claims autonomy from Niraie. The military of Niraie is very powerful; it is the second most powerful on the continent behind Sitenne.
The capital city of Niraie is the Federal City of Niraie. The population in the city is approximately 4 million, though it is an inland city and only the third most populated city in the country. The most populated city is situated on the coast and is named Kanjiko, with a population of 9 million.
The official language in Niraie is Niraikan, though there is a minority population of Mikrocipan speakers.
The Zodsan Provinces of the Bovenlands (Ranzhyv: Tes Provincias Zodsanolas ves te Boveland / Zodsan: Zodzanic Province dec va Bovenlandes) are a dependency under the Zodsan Empire. The population of the Bovenlands is rather low, due to the fact that the nation is almost entirely mountainous-- two of the highest points on the continent are both in the Bovenlands. Most of the population lives in the few lowest points.
The Bovenlands are an oligarchy with the facade of a democracy. The leaders of the Bovenlands all work under the president, named Ariesen. In very recent years, the Bovenlands claimed support and allegiance to the Zodsan Empire. Since then, the Bovenlands have become provinces to the empire and are officially under the rule of Emperor Ignatio.
The capital city of the Bovenlands is the city of Monschees. This city has a population of 110 thousand, and is the largest city at the highest altitude in the world. Almost all citizens live in rural areas, usually not attributed to a city or town of any form.
The official language of the Bovenlands is Ranzhyv, being the only nation other than the Ranzhyv Islands to have this.
The Republic of Quallenta (Quallentian: Republiq sa Qullenta) is a large nation located at the northernmost tip of the continent. The nation is the third most populated nation on the continent as well, and most of its population lives in urban areas. The nation is very wealthy and has great military power, though neglects a threat from Zodsa to refrain from long-term consequences of a war.
Quallenta is a democratic republic with a president. The current president is President Celestina, who was elected due to her stance of forming the Peace Powers alongside Aeon. The current biggest problem plaguing Quallenta is the fact that its eastern provinces were very recently seized by the Zodsan Empire (though the population seems to side with the Empire).
The capital city of Quallenta is Stroules. Stroules has a population of 3 million, and it is the second most populated city in the nation. The largest city in the nation is located on the northern shore, near to Khlad, and is named Flinders. It has a population of 7 million civilians. Khlad was a town located on the edge of the metropolis, though it recently claimed autonomy.
The official language in Quallenta is Quallentian.
The Zodsan Provinces of Qualemme (Quallentian: Zodsaniq Provinsas sa Qullem / Zodsan: Zodzanic Province dec Qualemme) are five provinces to the Empire located within the full borders of Quallenta. The provinces were pretty lowly populated of a Quallentian region, though support to the Zodsan Empire grew within the land rapidly. After Zodsa began to gain power and credibility upon the invasion of Mohdul, groups in support of Zodsa sprung up around the nation. This was concentrated greatly within the Qualemme region-- some studies showing from 75% to 85% of citizens in Qualemme supporting the Zodsan regime.
Thus, a movement was started to turn Quallenta into a Zodsan-controlled region and a civil war broke out. The rebels of Qualemme stood no chance against the federal government of Quallenta on their own, but Zodsa gave military assistance to the rebels. Quallenta did not want to deal with the long-term repercussions of a war against such a powerful nation, and thus ceded Qualemme to Zodsa.
The official language in Qualemme is Quallentian for informal purposes, though it is Zodsan for administrative purposes.
The Khlad Republic (Quallentian: Republiq sa Khlad) is a very small nation located on the coast of Quallenta. It is the smallest and most lowly populated nation in all of Eternite and is not even considered by all to be a sovereign nation as it is not entirely self-dependent. Though the nation claims neutrality to all foreign endeavors, "especially that of Quallenta."
Khlad is, in fact, a democratic republic though it is ruled by a mayor named Cruz. The nation was originally but a large town located within the metropolitan area of the city of Flinders. The mayor claimed full autonomy in a recent year, and little efforts were made to stop this from occurring.
In Khlad, the only language known to be spoken is Quallentian.
Urzulees is a small nation situated in the lower portion of the Bovenlands' mountain range. The nation is culturally and geographically similar to the Bovenlands, though in terms of government and funding it could not be more different. Most of the population lives in rural areas, with only 20% of the population living in the cities.
Urzulees is a simple democratic republic with a neutral lean on foreign affairs. The current head of state is the prime minister, Sebastien. Urzulees's main form of industry is energy, clean or nonrenewable. The nation has a booming coal industry which is regulated by the government. Per capita, Urzulees has one of the strongest economies on the continent due to its strong industrial opportunity.
The capital city and largest city of Urzulees is Middleton, with a population of 200 thousand. The most important political view of the Urzulessans is that they believe they deserve full control over the ancient city of Urzula (currently under control of Urzulana). The conflict for control of the city goes back hundreds of years, and the city has switched hands many times.
The official language in Urzulees is Urzulan.
The Urzulan Federation (Urzulan: Urzulic Federaßion), informally referred to as Urzulana, is a monarchy dating back thousands of years. The nation consists of a low range of mountains from the south to northwest, though the northeastern three provinces are rather densely populated. However, similarly to in Urzulees, the population tends to live in rural areas rather than urban.
As aforementioned, Urzulana is a monarchy. The current queen in control of the nation is named Queen Urzula XII, who is the twelfth in a long line of queens to reign over the nation. Urzulana's economy is struggling horribly, despite its industrial opportunity akin to that of Urzulees. Urzulana is under constant military pressure from Urzulees (who can afford to invest in its military), though most of Urzulana's funding goes into its military.
The capital city in Urzulana is the city of Urzula, which has a population of 2 million civilians. It is rather densely populated, and is considered to be a very important city to have control of, for historical reasons. Urzulees is constantly pressuring Urzulana due to the fact that they wish to have full control over the city. Urzulees makes slight territorial gains each year, taking land from Urzulana.
The official languag in Urzulana is Urzulan.
The Kingdom of Lottes (Lotte: Qiangerca sol Løtic) is a nation on the central-south coast of Eternite. Lottes is greatly populated and has public funding for the improvement of quality of life at all times. Majority of the population lives in urban areas, though crime rate is shockingly low in these areas. Lottes is known for sticking to its traditional values.
Lottes is a very isolationist state. It has no foreign alliances or biases. It takes part in no foreign affairs whatsoever, and the kingdom dates back to prehistoric times. The border of Lottes is surrounded by a large wall which is under constant patrol by its military officers. Speaking of which, the military in Lottes is known to be very powerful and overfunded.
The capital city of Lottes is located in the very center of the nation, and has a population of 3.5 million citizens. There are four other large cities which are situated at all of the corners of the nation, typically alongside the border wall.
The official language of Lottes is the Lotte language.
