Empire

Flag: The flag is a rectangle with two vertical stripes of dark red and dark yellow, and a diagonal bar of bright scarlet from left to right. The emblem is a stallion and a human head made of simple shapes.
Motto: Obedience is Control

An imperialistic and tyrannical nation claiming to be the true heir to the Second Empire of Man. Ruled for the last 55 years by the un-aging Victor Asmodeus, Empire has been behind countless attempts to undermine the UCFS and form the world into a new Third Empire of Man. Finally joined the UCFS eleven years ago. Empire is currently under careful watch by the UCFS for human rights violations and conspiracy to sabotage the UCFS.

The current government is comprised of the following people: Emperor Victor Asmodeus, Minister of Defense Karl Voigt, Minister of Information Joseph Brecht, Minister of Production Bernard Zeitler, Minister of Control Greta Ottmar, and Commissar of the White Guard Wolf Erichson

Empire is predominantly a Caucasian nation. Any natural hair or eye color can be found among its population. While the most common ethnicity is Caucasian, other ethnicities can be found. However, the non-Caucasian citizens of the nation are frequently not given the same treatment as those of fairer complexion. It is a sad fact that there is a definite โ€“ if unofficial โ€“ caste system in place, based off of ethnicity. Clothing in Empire is fairly bland and uninteresting. Outside of the ruling elite and White Guard, most citizens wear the same style of jumpsuit in blue or brown. Certain professions, such as the police force or those which require special protective gear, will have slight changes to the standard outfit. The White Guard wear military uniforms similar to those of other nations, but in absolute white. The rulers of Empire have the most unique styles of dress, each wearing something unique and distinctive. It is a sign of worth to have the right to wear clothing other than the standard jumpsuit.
