Politics and political games have destroyed grand armies, drained prosperous nations and enslaved countless civilians. The people does not need yet another politician to rule; they need a true caretaker and an ingenious strategist!—Ibrahim Yu the Emperor
The Empire of all Planet Earth and Outer Colonies, commonly known as the Empire of Terra, is a nation which sells technology to the Viridian Entente.
- Main article: History of the Empire of Terra
The Terrians lead by Emperor Ibrahim Yu are a small group migrants returning from a distant planet known as Terra Prime. Terrians are transcendently evolved humans known scientifically as Homo superimeous sapiens; in contrast to the ordinary Homo sapiens sapiens. Thus, the Terrians, despite being from a different subspecies, are still from the same species that all other humans on Planet Earth (Terra) are from.
Downfall and Exile Edit

Formation of the Empire of Terra Edit
The exact date of return and landing location of the Terrians are strictly top secret to ensure that the secrets of the Terrians (including the sole remaining Terrian space ship and its technologies) is kept hidden. This is to protect the humans from opening the Pandora's Box that the ancestors of the Terrians did, some 26,000 years ago.
On 10 August 2009, establishment of the Empire of Terra was declared by the leader of the remaining Terrians that traveled back to Planet Earth (Terra), Emperor Ibrahim Yu. Terrians wish to safe guard Planet Earth (Terra) and avoid self destruction that happened with Terra Prime.
Empire of Terra wish to lead the Terrians and other humans that would join this empire to a new utopia on Planet Earth (Terra). The Empire claims a soft-core de jure rule of the entire planet and any of its outer colonies (including Moon, Mars and Titan).
The Empire is a fast growing, yet, still a very young nation on earth. The Empire actively seeks corporation with other nations and has joined the great alliance of Viridian Entente to ensure a healthy and rapid growth on Planet Earth (Terra). Of the moment, the Empire only has a de facto rule extending to the outskirts of its capital city.

The de facto region of the Empire is growing rapidly thanks to its foreign relations with its allies in the Viridian Entente and the military service of the Empire to the Viridian Entente.
City of Hangzhou 杭州市
City of Shanghai 上海市
City of Nanjing 南京市
Current Economic Status Edit
Empire of Terra's economy is still that of a developing nation. GDP, GDP per capita and the economy as a whole have been experiencing rapid developments. With the joining of the alliance of Viridian Entente, the Empire is expect to experience a rapid growth in national strength, economy, military and technology in the coming few months.

- Avg. Gross Income Per Individual Per Day: $197.48 (A solid economy)
- Avg. Individual Income Taxes Paid Per Day: $55.29
- Avg. Net Daily Population Income (After Taxes): $142.19
- Current Funds available in the Treasury: $7,888,823.11 (Surplus)
Social Welfare Edit
The Empire view education, healthcare, human rights, social freedom, political freedom, religious freedom and labour rights as the core values of the social welfare.
The Empire aims to provide basic and higher education to each citizen. Although the current literacy level is relatively low (40.58% as of 28 September 2009) and only selected classes of citizens are literate. The Empire's long term aim would be to raise literacy level of all the citizens under the protection of the crown to 100%.
In terms of education, healthcare and labour rights, the Empire is not afraid to cut deep into its Treasury in order to fulfill the social welfare of the citizens under the protection of the Crown. The Empire aims to provide an extensive world class educational and healthcare system to cover every single citizen under the protection of the Crown.
Freedom, mutual respect and human rights are fundamental values built into the constitution of the Empire. The Empire allows and fully tolerates freedom of press and any non-violent demonstrations regardless of their content. Mutual respect and understanding is encouraged regardless of one's gender, race, language, skin colour, culture and religion.
The Empire also pays a significant deal of attention to protecting and improving the environment. As of 23 August 2009, the Empire achieved a new height in environmental protection by scoring a four stars environment.
Economy Model Edit
Apart from traditional income taxation system, the Treasury also invests widely in the native corporations of the Empire by purchasing non-executive shares from the corporations. This allows additional surplus for the Treasury and helps to stabilize the economy while minimizing the control over the free market.
All of the additional profit gained from these schemes are not fed into the Treasury but rather allocated directly to various ministries to contribute to the funding of extensive social welfare and development programs.
Aid from Viridian Entente, including joining of DAWN program and registering as a long term tech dealer are the main objectives and sources for securing a rapid growth of the Empire's strength, economic or otherwise.
Infrastructure and Improvements Edit
The current infrastructure level of the Empire is at developing nation's level. Following the initial membership aid package from Viridian Entente, the Empire has seen a rapid growth. Further aid programs from Viridian Entente to ensure speedy growth of the Empire is expected.
- Harbors: 1
- Foreign Ministries: 1
- Banks: 5
- Schools: 5
- Universities: 2
- Clinics: 5
- Hospitals: 1
Resources and Foreign Trade Edit
The native resources of the Empire are Coal and Wheat. The working class of the Empire work tirelessly to produces these resources for domestic and export purposes.
As of 6 November 2009, the Empire has joined a trade ring within Viridia; and the Empire is the trade ring leader. The trading partners of the Empire are: Carmarthen, Glass, xSiaNx, Venganza and Valkyia.
Current Military StatusEdit
The Empire is still a young nation not monetarily and technologically capable of assembling a large or advanced military. The peacetime military force is typically kept above 20% and below 50% of the Empire's total population.
Following the admittance of full member status into the Viridian Entente, the Empire of Terra has come under the military protection of the Entente. Thus, the defense and protection of the Empire during its development stages is fully ensured by the Entente.
The Empire aims to develop an all-purpose military as soon as strategically favorable. The research and use of nuclear technology for either power generation or weapons are currently not an option in the future agenda of the Empire. Though, the Empire retains the possibility to change its official position on the issue; depending on the requirement of the Entente and peace status of the world.
Current War Chest available: 6 days of Empire's income. (as of 6 November 2009)
- The Empire has not yet been actively, directly or indirectly involved in any major wars.
- In the very early days of the Empire's membership into the Viridian Entente, the VE-GDI War broke out. The Empire was still a tiny underdeveloped nation and was fully protected by the Entente. The war didn't escalate to the Empire and GDI was soon defeated by the Entente.
Empire of Terra vs FinlandsEdit
Less of a month's membership into the Viridian Entente, the Empire has already seen a sharp growth in national strength, with many more such sharp growth expected on the horizon. Hence, the Empire decided to serve the Entente military voluntarily.
The Empire, as a unit in the Entente's Phoenix Battalion, First Division; waved war against Finlands. This nation was recognized by the Entente as an NPO ghost. This was the first military campaign of the Empire and immense pre-strike research was put into place. Although the target did not submit to terms, a decisive stragetic and tactical victory was achieved. The Empire also looted 17.54 tech level, 112.646 miles of land area and other financial spoils of war.
Empire of Terra vs macedoniatallicaEdit
The Empire is keen to serve the Entente in more military operations. On 16 September 2009, the Empire, authorised by First Division Officer, engaged a rogue nation. The rouge nation was sentenced to three rounds of war and the Empire was the third nation joining the war (2nd VE nation).
The tango's defense was nearly crushed to nothing when the Empire joined the war, so retaliation is extremely unlikely.
Empire of Terra vs republic of chaosEdit
- Main article: Empire of Terra vs republic of chaos (Operation Order)
This is the third war the Empire of Terra waged, and the second against a rogue. Started on 19 September 2009, when the Empire was still engaged with macedoniatallica (which had no retaliation ability left).
The initial plan of the Empire was to engage this tango after Operation Touchdown (aid fall operation within Viridian Entente). But discovering that two other unaligned nations currently suffer raiding from this rogue, the Empire decided to step in immediately in order to fly the banner of VE with honour!
This was the first tango that is equally matched in terms of NS with the Empire and has significantly more tech. The Empire suffered great casualties and financial losses in the first day of attack, which was a total defeat in ground attack.
After a week of strike, the Empire prevailed and Valkyia picked up the attack on the proud rogue.
Nation Strength Edit
Following the abandoning of the Terrian space ship and technologies, the Terrians integrated with the humans on Planet Earth (Terra). The Empire of Terra started from scratch and thus, had no advanced technology carried forward.
The current technology of the Empire is relatively low and under-developed (66.82 as of 28 September 2009). The Empire aims to extensively develop the technology once the economy and infrastructure are better developed.
The Empire aims to develop itself into one of the most technologically advanced nations and relive the glory of the Terrian ancestors; but this time, in a much more "healthy" and "natural" way.
The Empire of Terra is currently a young and developing nation (Nation Strength of 289.000 as of 18 August 2009). The current focus of the Empire would be to develop its infrastructure, which would help to increase the nation's population and economy. Any other factors are currently considered secondary; and extensive growth of these other factors would only resume once the infrastructure of the Empire is sufficiently developed.
The Empire of Terra is expected to undergo a rapid growth in terms of Nation Strength, especially in infrastructure, following the recent joining of the Viridian Entente. The following couple of months would be crucial in determining the success of the Empire.
Geography and Climate Edit
Geography of Capital CityEdit
The capital city of Ningbo proper (not including Suburban and Rural areas) is located on a flat plain, mainly surrounded by mountainous ranges on three sides and the Pacific Ocean towards the north east. Thus, the city enjoys the economic benefits from its major naval port location and strategic military benefits from its fortress geography. Due to its historic significance and deep water levels in its ports, the city has the potential to race Shanghai as the major naval port city in the eastern coast of the Asian Continent.
Climate of Capital CityEdit
The climate of the capital city is of a typical northern hemisphere seasonal climate. During the winter months, temperature reaches freezing levels; but snowfall does not occur yearly. During the summer months, temperatures reach up to 40 degrees Celsius and 90% humidity. The city and its surrounding regions are known for its high humidity that most visitors from dry areas find extremely hard to tolerate.
Apart from the original 100 Terrians (Homo superimeous sapiens), overwhelming majority of the current Terrian population are ethnically Han Chinese. Though, more and more individuals from various Chinese and other ethnic groups are joining the Empire everyday.
The original 100 Terrians are ethnically neutral (due to their genetically evolved state); though, they are listed under Chinese to please the majority of their population and rally popular support from neighboring Chinese population.
Most popular world languages including English, Mandarin, Wu, Spanish and Arabic are adopted as the official languages in an attempt to rally more supporters to the Empire. Culture and ethnic mutual respect are key values preached by the Royal Family to assimilate the population of the growing Empire. The aim of the Royal Family is to build an Empire with mixed ethnicity. Though, this could only be possible once the Empire's de facto ruling area extend much further.
The population is made up of citizens and residents. Residents are not under the protection of the Crown, but have the permission to settle in the Empire. Residents have the right to gain citizenship upon meeting certain requirements.
Ethnics Breakdown of the Citizens (% of the population):
- Han Chinese: 80%
- Hui Chinese: 12%
- Other Chinese: 3%
- Others: 5%
Religion Breakdown of the Citizens (% of the population):
- Buddhism: 56%
- Islam: 22%
- Christianity: 4%
- Other Religion: 10%
- Atheist: 8%
The Terrians from Terra Prime had a unified religion, which is the Religion of Truth discovered by the original Travelers from traveling through numerous worlds of the vast universe. In different worlds, the Religion of Truth is known by different names; but the basic characteristics of monotheism, submission of will, purity and internal peace remain the same.
On arriving Planet Earth (Terra), the Terrians found that the religion of Islam to be of a best fit to characteristics of their Religion of Truth. To prevent creating an alienating cult, majority of the Terrians decided to embrace Islam and adopt it as the official religion of the nation. Though, there are a few of the original 100 that were opposed to the conversion and insist on sticking strictly to the traditions their ancestors to the letter. Since religious freedom is a value held by the Empire and built into the Constitution, any religious groups and practices are fully tolerated and respected under the protection of the Crown.
Religious demonstrations Edit
- On 28 August 2009, a public gathering outside the Capitol District voiced the will of majority of the population's favouring towards Buddhism. Since majority of the population is made up of Han Chinese, the population wishes to change the national religion to Chinese Buddhism. Though, the Emperor, majority of the Royal Family and the Hui Chinese population in the Empire strictly supports Islam as the national religion of the Empire.
- On 15 September 2009, a public gathering outside the Capitol District demanded the state religion to be changed to Taoism. Following the success of starting a trade ring, the Emperor instantaneously decided to change the state religion to Taoism as an experimental transition religion for the state, yet retaining Islam as the state religion in the same time.
Since majority of the citizens are of Chinese origin, Chinese culture and traditions are well celebrated within the Empire. Many Chinese festivals including New Spring Day (Chinese New Year), Mid-Autumn Day, etc. are celebrated by majority of the populations, Chinese or otherwise.
The official national religion of the Empire is Islam as a result of the Royal Family's beliefs. The Empire tolerates and respects all beliefs and practices; thus, leading to a community of vast religious diversity. Religious festivals and functions are publicly celebrated by adherents.
Certain Terrian traditions are also carried forward from the Terrian ancestors.
- 16 June: Emperor's Birthday. Celebrating the birthday of His Majesty, Ibrahim Yu, the Emperor of the Empire of Terra.
- 10 August: Day of Establishment. Celebrating the establishment of the Empire of Terra
