The Empire of Eruption was founded by a group of great explorers from The Empire of the UK exploring the oceans of the world. The explorers found a new land in the middle of the ocean. The explorers noticed that the land was in fact an active volcano. The volcano itself has been dormant for five hundred years and the next eruption is not due for another year however preparations are already underway to establish volcano proof infrastructure to ensure the sustainability of the nation.
Upon the disappearance of Colonel Brick in late August 2012, a group of loyalist explorers set off on a quest to discover new land for the Empire of the UK. During their travels they came across a volcanic island in the middle of the ocean. They docked and discovered that the volcano itself was dormant. Upon exploration of the island they discovered signs of indigenous human settlements.
In January 2013, they stumbled upon a cave. It was this discovery that led them to their beloved leader Colonel Brick. With the experience of the explorers, Brick rose to lead them in their quest to settle on the island. He assumed the position of Colonel in Chief on January 10, 2013.
The Empire is a member state of the Global Protection Force as of January 10, 2013. Colonel Brick is the incumbent Director of Recruitment.
