Imperial Truidence, also known as Truidence, was the name for the Truidencian Empires throughout CivClassic and Devoted Hell. The First Truidencian Empire was only known as Imperial Truidence, and was ruled by Emperor Bez I. After his passing, the empire was reformed into the Second Truidencian Empire, under Obtainable Spatula. Both these were on CivClassic. When Devoted Hell was released, a Third Truidencian Empire was conceived. Imperial Truidence's main civ server was however still CivClassic. There it resided in the shallow -,- quadrant, with possessions in the shallow parts of the three other quadrants as well. The governing of Imperial Truidence was done in the style of a mix between absolutist monarchy, with representative democracy in the form of the Imperial Senate while under a religious zeal found in Bezism.
The Truidencian political system was characterized by its use of both authoritarianism, in service of efficiency, and democracy, in service of the common good. Two entities have legislative power: the imperial senate and the Emperor. The senate may be overruled by the Emperor, should he deem it necessary.
Originally, the senate and the Emperor could overrule each other, with the senate gaining a final say if they reached a consensus of 80% of the votes within the senate . The idea was that in most cases, the permanent leader would be better suited to decide in precarious matters than senators whose position of power would rely upon public opinion. But, if 80% of the population, through their representatives, were to agree on an action to take, it would most likely be the right one.
This system was changed to the current one however, for two chief reasons:
1. The uncertainty of who would get the final say discouraged both parties from proposing changes, policies, laws, etc.
2. The Parliament was inactive for long periods of time, leaving a bigger workload for the Emperor.
As such the system took the form described in the first paragraph; with the addition of ministerial positions. These positions are Chancellor, currently held by GenericLaqey, and Imperial Diplomat, occupied by Icyski. There are also up to three judges, whose job it is to rule in civil court cases. One is chosen by the Emperor, one is chosen by the the Commons and the last is chosen in the monthly election.

The Aggregated Truidencian Party was founded by the Bog Knight on the 10th of June, 2021. It was based on the core tenants of Orthodox Bezism, Expansionism, Colonialism, Truidencian Social Security, Economic Support and the Defense of Truidencian minorities in other nations. The party held true to social conservatism, though being more economically centrist and embracing Distributism. This demanded a compromise with business-run organizations and worker-run unions, with both having rights and privileges under the law of Imperial Truidence, neither surpassing the other. The colonial efforts of the empire are also a consideration, as unclaimed and unpopulated lands are good a opportunity to foster national unity and create infrastructure. A key goal of the ATP was the growth and development of the eastern lands of Imperial Truidence, usually defined as regions east of the city of Northland. As the founder and current leader of the ATP, the Bog Knight, invested much into these lands and colonies, it was central to the party. Ever since the fall of Verda and the many unclaimed areas in the region, this eastward colonialism was based off of this opportunity.
The Truidencian People's Party (formerly ATNPP which was founded on the 10th of February, 2021) was reformed by Zeldronix on the 6th of July, 2021. It was based on the core tenants of Pan-Truidencianism, Social Welfare and Economic Interventionism. The party represented the centre populist branch of the Truidencian political sphere, but defined itself as left wing due to its economic and social policies. The party had a policy of "The People Comes First" With which they seeked to economically support the less fortunate citizenry of the empire, expand infrastructure to the underdeveloped provinces, unite the empire like never before via more railways and land-reclamation of the sea and funding the construction of new buildings dedicated to the worship of Bez, free for all to enjoy.
The Truidencian Industrial Party was founded by Icyski on the 24th of July, 2021. It's main goal was focusing on the Industrialization and and expansion of Imperial Infrastructure as well as strengthening the economy of Imperial Truidence. It's headquarters were located in Northland City. The Truidencian Industrial party was the party that initiated the Northland project. Their main focuses were on the construction of new farms as well as military infrastructure, as opposed to the cultural focuses of the two parties that were founded before the TIP.
The yet to be founded party Sneaky is representing. It has been referenced as both "The Pirate Party" and "The Centre Party".
Aggregationism is a poltical thought developed by Discozoa.
Zeldrinism and Neo-Zeldrinism
Zeldrinism(2020) is the name for the ever changing ideologies of Zeldronix. Neo-Zeldrinism(2021) is the name for the ever changing ideologies of Zeldronix.
Pan-Truidencianism is an ideology native to Imperial Truidence that defines all those who are believers of The True Faith to be Truidencians, whether or not they are citizens or even live in Imperial Truidence. There is a wish for them to eventually "return home" or make their current home a part of Truidence itself. This movement was named "Pan-Truidencianism". Eon was the first Bezist nation besides Truidence and the first dominion to join Truidence, thus proving Pan-Truidencianism to be a working strategy to expand the empire peacefully. Zeldronix and his party has taken the credit for this with being the ones who started the negotiations and being the creators of the new concept and laws of imperial dominions as part of the greater empire.

Founding and Early DaysImperial Truidence was founded on 1st of April 2019 on the ruins of Concord, after some moistened bint lobbed a scimitar at Bez, making him emperor. The city was promptly renamed to Anburon and became the nation's capital. The etymology of the name ‘Truidence’ originated from a medieval name generator and was adopted as the name of this new nation.On the 28th 2019 of April Emperor Bez declared the temporary suspension of the Commons; set to last until the 31st of May. This was done because of the tradition of Russetid and coming exams.
Both me and the senators believe this is the best course of action, seeing that we now have a period of limited time we can devote to the server and building our nation is currently more pressing than maintaining democracy. - Emperor Bez
On the 28 of May Emperor Bez announced that democracy was to be reinstated and on the 30th of May the Commons was reinstated after a general election.
The Period of Shifting Alliances
Imperial Truidence joined the UNC on the 1st of July. The nation's presence was short however. Shortly after joining, the UNC lost most of it's member states to a internal conflict regarding the topic of intervention. Varkonia, Gensokyo, and Nyasaland left the UNC to create a new alliance with Hjaltland, namely the Entente. Several other nations left in the following day, and thus the Truidencian senate agreed on that it no longer was in the best interest of Imperial Truidence to be in the UNC, as there no longer were any allies nearby. The UNC fell apart the following day, as Iria, Kaltsburg, SPQR, Nevrast, and Corvus Corp. all left the alliance. Tvtopia is the only remaining nation, electing to keep the UNC as a museum.
To deal with this new crises, Emperor Bez called a meeting with the senators of Imperial Truidence. At this meeting, Bez, Obtainable Spatula, Smarties_313 and Dr_Despacito decided the general course the nation was going to take. Bez also revealed that he was planning on retiring soon due to his work schedule.
Emperor Bez declared his abdication from the throne of Imperial Truidence and all her territories on the 13th of July, though there was room for reinstatement if or when his work schedule would allow it. He named Obtainable Spatula as his successor. Bez kept his titles in his self-appointed exile, though the actual position of head of state was transferred to Obtainable Spatula, who gained the title of Prime Chancellor. He served as a de facto Emperor for the remainder of the period.
The Imperial Truidence constitution was also changed as decided by the earlier meeting, with Emperor Bez writing the proposal and the senators voting it in. The most major change was the establishment of the minister system outlined above.
Imperial Truidence's period of standing alone ended two days after the Emperor's abdication, with Prime Chancellor Obtainable Spatula signing the Treaty of Salisbury, a pact of friendship and assistance with Varkonia, a previous UNC member.
A few days later, on the 18th, the Prime Chancellor signed and co-wrote the charter of a brand new alliance, the United Defensive Front, UDF for short. This new alliance consisted of Imperial Truidence, Icenia, and previous UNC ally Bloom.
While Obtainable Spatula was Prime Chancellor, he expanded heavily uppon the empire's borders, making two of the four major land claims of the empire during this period.
During the last days of the period a divide took form within the state of Imperial Truidence. Obtainable Spatula, being the head of state, wanted to enact an extensive architectural reform, requiring many citizens to alter the design of their properties. The Chancellor, Smarties_313 opposed the reform, citing the the reform's transgression on the personal freedom of Truidence citizens.
With Smarties_313 lack of cooperation, Obtainable Spatula took on the task himself, effectively juggling the roles of Prime Chancellor, Field Marshal, Chief Diplomat and now Chancellor. This caught the attention of Bez, who reached out to Obtainable Spatula, about his reinstatement as emperor, marking and end of the Prime Chancellorship.
On August 13th, exactly a month after his abdication, Emperor Bez resumed his position as head of state. In his announcement he made it known that he would serve in a more limited capacity due to his work schedule not having changed. The ministers were to conduct day to day operations, with Bez being more of a figurehead, and solving disputes between the ministry and overruling poor decision making.
His first action was to call a meeting with the ministers. At this meeting the state of Imperial Truidence was reunified with common agreement on the issue of architectural reform.
Banishment of Yellofishy
Yellofishy was a very active member and citizen of Imperial Truidence. After joining the nation in June, he quickly became known for his quirky and eccentric behavior, and his eagerness to contribute to the nation. Though his eagerness made him take on many projects, his enthusiasm was often short lived and he would then pick another project, which would also peter out. His most successful endeavor was a recruitment campaign which saw a moderate increase in new citizens.
Through his time in Imperial Truidence he held the positions of representative to the UNC and as a judge. He was the sitting judge of the trial of _Sleven, who had raided Imperial Truidence multiple times. Yellofishy was eventually removed from the position after acquiring an alt-account and being sentenced for alt-raiding.
His tenure as a representative was also short lived due to the collapse of the UNC soon after Imperial Truidence joined it. As a representative he was known to post irrelevant messages and comments in various chats and received several warnings from the state of Imperial Truidence.
It was during this time that Yellofishy became a well known figure outside of Imperial Truidence. His often wacky and entertaining behavior made him the subject of the subreddit r/bestofyello(inactive).
On the 26 of August 2019, he admitted he broke into the Imperial Truidence private factory room with the famous message "@Obtainable Spatula btich i broke in the factories". It was also during this event that he continually pinged Obtainable Spatula despite being told several times not to do so. This was considered harassment during the subsequent trial of Yellofishy, though it was considered settled out of court due to an agreement between Obtainable Spatula and Yello that Yello would get payed less for a task he was given.
During the same trial Yellofishy was found guilty of breaking into the factory room. He was therefore banished from the empire by presiding judge Bez, citing his belief that previous transgressions and Yello's general behavior indicated that he would not learn from his mistakes.
This sparked an outrage among many friends and fans of Yellofishy, culminating in a period of 3 days(03.09.2019 to 05.09.2019) where 14 of the 24 (60%) posts posted that were about him, his departure and general memery.
A part of Yello's sentence was being pearled if he set foot in Truidencian land again. A few weeks after being banished, he moved his alt accounts through the capital of Anburon, making him wanted by the Truidencian government. He seeked asylum in Adina, and was under their protection as long as he kept within their borders. He was well aware of this, but still proceeded to move one of his accounts to the Mircapital city of Charon. Obtainable Spatula was told by S4NTA that yello was there, and was allowed to come to Mir to pearl Yello. Spatula immediately proceeded to move towards Charon. When he arrived there, Yello was standing AFK in an empty building in the capital. Spatula made his way into the house and attacked Yello, who started moving and trying to defend himself. His efforts resulted in naught however, as he was exile pearled before he could put up much of a fight. Obtainable Spatula brought his pearl to Varkonia, who had agreed to hold the pearl on Imperial Truidence's behalf. Yello's pearling sentence was increased multiple times, after being warned that the sentence would be increased if he continued to harass the citizens of Imperial Truidence from the end. He was released 4 months later, before being banned for doxxing.
The Renaissance of Anburon
During the middle of June 2020, a mission was undertaken by the Truidencians GenericLaqey and Icyski. Their mission was to revitalize and beautify Imperial Truidence's capital city of Anburon. They began by building a vertical longship in the architectural style of the viking era in the bay south of the city, based on Imperial Truidence's ethnic roots to Norway and viking culture. The longship was of their own design, complete with a deck for meat, a deck for alcohol, and many more. After this, GenericLaqey proceeded to single handedly complete the St. Bez cathedral, designed by Obtainable Spatula, which had been under construction for nearly 6 months. He felt the need to build more, so he built a large town hall also designed by Obtainable Spatula in northern Anburon, and equipped the entire town with streetlights, so the inhabitants of Anburon could walk the streets with no fear of the horrid creatures of the night.
The Schism of Retardation
The Schism of Retardation was a series of theological debates and political fractures based around the disputed fact of the fallibility of the divine. The schism began after God Emperor Bez stated that "Everybody is retarded. Sometimes". This called into question whether or not the God Emperor himself was therefore also sometimes retarded. The official decree from Bez was as follows: "My retardness is a theological matter". This effectively split the Church and nation of Imperial Truidence into two camps. The conservatives who believed the God Emperor could not be retarded, led by GenericLaqey. And the progressives, who believed the Emperor was retarded most of the time, but not when intoxicated; led by the Chief Diplomat and Field Marshal Obtainable Spatula. The conflict lasted for 18 hours. Culminating with a series of riots and street clashes. The conflict came to a close when GenericLaqey, in a heated debate with Spatula, argued that since the God Emperor is everything, and "everything" would necessarily include retardeness, that God Emperor Bez must be retarded. Bez, considering the matter to be satisfactorily settled, declared it so, ending the Schism of Retardation.
The Time of Military Construction
Following the end of the Infinity War, the Royal Army of Imperial Truidence decided that it was time to build up it's military might. The server's active population had heavily stagnated, as most were tired after the war, and had started playing on CivRealms instead. Imperial Truidence knew that this would only be temporary, and that eventually the admins of CivRealms would commit some poor decisions, which would result in people returning to CivClassic. And when that happened, the Royal Army wanted to be prepared for the possibility of a new wave of raiders threatening the lifestyle of the Truidencian populace. The Field Marshal of the army decided that it was time to begin the enormous undertaking of constructing a vault, and thus, Dovre was born. The finished vault stands at a menacing [classified] rings, with extensive [classified], and a [classified] to boot. The army also constructed several smaller bunkers around the claims of Imperial Truidence, with a network of ice roads connecting them. Later into the period also saw the arrival of the Bog Knight, Discozoa, who settled Inis Móin after seeing a radiant 10-pointed star land in the bog.
The Post Bez Age and the Reign of Emperor Obtainable Spatula
Following the period of peace after the Infinity War, the Emperor of Imperial Truidence made his apotheosis, and rose to become God-Emperor Bez, leaving the throne to Obtainable Spatula. The newly crowned Emperor accepted the reigns of the realm and rules to this day. Pontifex of the Bezist Faith, GenericLaqey confirmed that the religion of Imperial Truidence would be devoted to Bez and his glory. Several new colonial possessions came into Truidencian control during this time such as Bezlaib, Daedalus and Carrot Land. New construction efforts were spawned in the wake of the new emperor including farmlands, the creation of Quagmire Keep, the rebuilding of Northland, the Tower of Maithlaib, the Bezlaib Corridor Roadway, the Chuarpstoen Chapel and many projects in and around Anburon.
The Spatulic Spring
As the year of 2021 proceeded, the colonial and political tides of Imperial Truidence were in flux. On the 10th of February 2021, coenciding with his return to the server Zeldronix created the All-Truidencian National People's Party (ATNPP) upon a platform of westward expansionism, Radical Bezism and nationalism. On the 21th of January, 2021 saw the creation of the Carrot Land colony upon the old ruins of Panem while June the 13th saw the creation of the Spatine (Later Camelot) colony. These colonial expansions eastward and the continuing push to develop Eastern Truidence convinced the Bog Knight to create the Aggregate Truidencian Party (ATP) on the 10th of June 2021. In terms of Bezism, theologians debated the existence of the Frithbezeach until the Pontifex GenericLaquy declared in his immortal words,"fuck it why not" on the 14th of June 2021, essentially ending the theological debate.
With the desire to codify the going’s on of Imperial Truidence and noting the popular Lambat Post of Lambat, the Bezist’s Bulletin was created, being managed by the Bog Knight. A noted shift was taking place from Anburon, with Emperor Obtainable Spatula declaring his desire to have a hands-off approach to governing and infrastructure projects, encouraging the Truidencian government and wider populous to undertake projects themselves. This has also been noted with the diplomatic policy of Imperial Truidence, favoring a more careful and controlled approach to the politics of the international community.
The Northland Project
With the Summer months progressing, a new and ambitious project was announced, with the many lords, architects, builders and industrialists being assembled to expand the city of Northland. Despite the city's long history under Truidencian sovereignty, it was mostly forgotten beside the usual minor grief. Though a new farm had been created directly west of Northland, the city itself lacked any renovation. The new project planned to create a newer Northland on the southern side of the Northland River, with no threat of damaging the historical buildings of Northland and to expand into an as of yet unsettled area. The three greatest contributors to this Northland project would be Icyski, Zeldronix and the Bog Knight, with the first buildings being Zeldrïn's Bezengard-style developments on the west, the Truidencian State Building by Icyski alongside the Árbez Bezist Temple and apartment complex by the Bog Knight.
Though the Bog Knight would eventually move to the New Truidencian colony of Tírlábán for a time in mid-August, the other builders would continue work on Northland. The scope of the project would be expanded, with land reclamation in the south and properly paved roadways. The western side of the new city would begin to take shape as the Bezengard architectural style erected new storehouses and commercial buildings by Zeldronix. The canal in the center of the city would be given embankments and extension northwards, with a bridge-building crossing the gap. The eastern quarter would soon grow with the return of the Bog Knight and the creation of several new establishments in the Inis Móin architectural style. To preserve the natural landscape, lands east of the eastern quarter would be walled off to create a new nature preserve.
Eon & the End of the Eastern Scramble
The end of CivClassic
Imperial Truidence's main geographical feature consists of forests and taigas, with a more diverse range of biomes further from the capital. The other biomes in the empire include nether islands, a mooshroom island, a roofed forest biome, a savannah, several swamps, and a couple of mesas. The entire empire is centered just north-west of 0,0, with the capital of Anburon in the very south of the main land cluster. The capital boasts a medieval architectural style, and the seat of power of the Emperor. The rest of the nation's many provinces and regions have several small towns, with their own unique styles and buildings.
Regions and Provinces
Purpose: Homeland of the Truidencians.
Truidence is the main island of Imperial Truidence. It symbolized the unity of the Truidencian people. This area was the first land claimed by Imperial Truidence under the reign of God Emperor Bez and all further territorial expansion would extend from Truidence.
Purpose: Spruce forest
Dol Morhen is the northern half of an island shared with Icenia. Its mostly covered by forest with Zeldrïn's Mansion towering over the landscape along with several grand halls and Little Gabon. It is sometimes considered to be a part of the Greater Anburon Area due to it's proximity to the capital.
Purpose: Mining and lumber
Though it may be of the same landmass of Truidence, Upper Truidence is a distinct territory. The lands of upper Truidence are some of the most primordial and ancient lands of CivClassics, with ruins and structures surviving from the very dawn of the server. It was once home to the old nations of Northland and the Ring of Essence, though any notion of these old states is hard to come by. Under the administration of Imperial Truidence, Upper Truidence would become a center of excavation and wood harvesting, with the settlements of Marbhdoire and Surmark being formed.
Purpose: Alternative to Anburon as home of skillful builders in Imperial Truidence.
Capital: Ban Ard
Eivindia is an elevated roofed forest biome in the north of Imperial Truidence, it sports its own small town, made as a planned city. It's isolated northern geography means that this area garners little travelers.
Purpose: Industrial work and development
Northland is usually regarded as the region in and around the city of Northland. Among the cities of Imperial Truidence, Northland is the second largest and one of the most ancient. The old city north of the river was erected prior to Imperial Truidence and has weathered many attacks and repairs, still standing as a testament to historical preservation. The new city was established south of the river as a part of the Northland Project and has seen extensive construction and progress.
Purpose: Farmland in the swamps.
Bezistan is simply enough a swampland farming area, and houses the disabled vault of the infamous NATO fighter Foogoot. In the marshy isles of the south, the Tower of Maithlaib ('Good Mud' in Irish Gaelic) was constructed by the Bog Knight.
Purpose: Pumpkin farming and lumber
Capital: The Mire
The Mire was a peninsula connected to Wayrest: It was previously known as Charcoal Town, before being annexed by Imperial Truidence. It now supports a large pumpkin farm in the southeast while most of the Mire's settlements have wasted away or have been reclaimed by the forest. A mass grave sight known as the Coast of the Crosses on the western coast sports massive headstones in memory of what had been lost to time. In the far north lies Unclad Point, a bare peninsula bereft of trees and vegetation. Despite it's name the Mire is not a swamp biome, being dominated by spruce forests. The only true mire of the Mire was siphoned via canal and became what is today Inis Moin.
Purpose: Southern bulwark, port and home of the Bog Knight
Capital: Quagmire Keep
After the arrival of Discozoa and the construction of the Eastern Canal, the Mire split from Wayrest and was also divided from it’s eastern land, creating the island of Inis Móin. The isle sports the settlement of Murnys and several forts, chief of which is Quagmire Keep home of Discozoa the Bog Knight. Murnys is the main port with an artificial peninsula jutting out eastward. The south coast has farmland and the fort of Dundeifir, which looks over the Laib Bay onto the lands of Yoahtl. The coastline once had many minor coastal defenses, though these have long been out of commission. In the northwest lies the minor port of Crionna, which houses Inis Moin's largest Bezist temple, only being seconded by the Temple of the Bog in Murnys. Northwestward still lies Beagmoin ('Little Peat' in Irish Gaelic) an isle floating on top of a great mineshaft.
Purpose: Connecting the empire.
Kingslands is the glue that binds the empire together. It was previously owned by LOAC, but was abandoned after they moved to Nyasaland. It is now home to the impressive military facility of Dovre. The Kingslands are also home to Sprucelands and a large Mesa plateau that once belonged to Icenia.
Purpose: Archipelago that supplies the empire with all it's nether-related needs.
Capital: Din Valdra
Inis Muire (Elvish for Islands of the Sea) is an archipelago west of Imperial Truidence consisting of Din Valdra (elvish for 'Silent Inferno'), Hudnellum (a type of mushroom), Inis D'yaebl (elvish for 'Devil Island'), Foilé Deithwen (elvish for frantic white flame), and Vort Treise (elvish for 'Distant Strength').
Purpose: Exotic Farming Biome & Pilgrimage
Capital: Downer Astonia
Downer Astonia is the Far East territory of Imperial Truidence. It consists of two small islands south of Astonia proper. After the completion of the Bezlaib Corridor Roadway, the Bog Knight created the easternmost Bezist temple, the Chuarpstoen Chapel which overlooked the eastern cliffside of Downer Astonia.
Purpose: Connect Downer Astonia to the rest of Imperial Truidence
Bezlaib (also referred to as the Bezlaib Corridor) is a colonial possession of the East created by Discozoa the Bog Knight to build a roadway from the Isle of Lhasha to Downer Astonia.
The Bog Knight sailed from Inis Moin, past the lands of Yoahtl Wayrest and east to Forogra Landing (Proclamation Landing). Previously unknown, Rana, Lhasha and some of the neighboring islands were once inhabited, easing costs of infrastructure. On the grounds of what would become Bezlaib, an abandoned Adinian outpost lay dormant. The Bog Knight seized the outpost for Imperial Truidence and went about construction the roadway. From November 1st 2020 to December 17th of 2020, the roadway was completed and so was the colony's purpose. On the 7th of August 2021, the Bog Knight relinquished the title of Colonial Lord Protector of Bezlaib and the former colony became a province of Imperial Truidence.
Carrot Land (Colonial Holding)
Purpose: Produce Carrots
Capital: Ruins of Panem
Carrot Land is a colonial possession of Imperial Truidence east of Bezistan. It constitutes of Panem (or what’s left of it), the Isle of Phalluses and other surrounding islands. Unfortunately due to some tragic twist of fate, Carrot Land appears unable to grow carrots. In memory of this tragedy, massive carrot-like structures have been created and are now used as housing and storage. The Bog Knight arrived soon after the colony's foundation and created the town of Glanmeacan ('Pure Vegetable' in Irish Gaelic) as a naval base. Further into the Ruins of Panem the Bog Knight renovated an old heretical temple to a Bezist place of worship and erecting a temple on the eastern side of the isle that would be known as the Brollog Bezist Temple.
Besia (Colonial Holding)
Besia is the colonial holding of SirTwiggles, it serves as kindergarden where he can use his energy in a safe enviroment (safe for others). In recent times Twiggles has begun to chill. The landscape is hilly and frigid, housing the only natural snowfall in Imperial Truidence. Travel to this remote region is difficult to undertake from the heartlands, with the most common route going through Tírlábán and trekking through the terrain and sea eastwards.
Westland (Colonial Holding)
Purpose: Farming colony
Westland is in what used to be the Holy Jaded Empire, but after the war, the territory became unoccupied. Due to the island's large amount of abandoned farms, Truidencians have taken to reactivate these under their own groups. Some say that this holding is actually to create a worldborder vault, however these rumors are completely unfounded. This is the westernmost territory of Imperial Truidence.
Camelot (Colonial Holding)
Purpose: Military Rally point, Historical preservation, buildfriend city
Camelot is in what was once the western portion of Craigia, holding the grounds of old Craigrad itself. It was founded by the Bog Knight and was named Spatine in honor of the Emperor Obtainable Spatula. After being told that Truidencians can only hold one colonial holding, and with the Bog Knight already being Colonial Lord Protector of Bezlaib at the time, the Bog Knight gave the title of Colonial Lord Protector of Spatine to StardustTheLove. Under the new rulership, StardustTheLove renamed the colony to Camelot and began efforts to refurbish the old city. In the present the colony is prosperous, with bamboo and other resources being a prime export, as well as infrastructure like a skybunker, roads, rails, and factories showing up.
Some notable builds include:
- Craiggrad's castle and government building
- King Arthur's Sword
- Rail station
- (WIP) Camelot Palace (A larger, grander version of Stardust's home castle in the southern harbor of Anburon)
- Heinlau, a ruined city about 250 blocks west of Camelot
- The City of Heinlau was renamed to "Liones", once again following Stardust's passion for Arthurian Legend.
Tírlábán (Colonial Holding)
Purpose: Control and preserve valuable strategic ports in the east
Tírlábán is a colony east of Varkonian Aurum, north of the Icenian Stormmire Highlands and south of the Amyr Exclave. It was created by Discozoa, the Bog Knight, though the original plan was to claim territory in what is now the Lambat territory of Greater Duskwood. With the arrival of the Bog Knight on the 8th of August 2021 development began immediately, with the old central keep being renovated and topped by an onion dome for each spire. New buildings were also erected, with several storehouses and the new pride of the colony, the Fuilcloch Bezist Temple. 2021's annual Milk Day would see the Bog Knight sacrificed before Bez himself at the altar of Fuilcloch.
Eon Empire (Declared Independence)
Purpose: Defense of Bezist Peoples
The Eon Empire chose to become a dominion of Imperial Truidence in 12th of September and would be given special autonomy within the greater hegemony. Such an agreement was made as a result of Eon's conversion to the Bezist faith and the Eon government being in favor of forming a relationship of fealty with Imperial Truidence, with Zeldronix negotiating the integration of Eon. This association would come to aid Eon when Minemaster invaded central Eon in an attempt to create 'Kickassia', with Truidencian, Eonian and other allied forces would beat back the invasion. Truidencian investors would contribute to Eon's infrastructure, with bunkers and buildings being constructed for the Eon populace. As of the 23th of November Eon was no longer a dominion of Imperial Truidence.

Imperial Truidence is one of three founding members of the United Defense Front, or UDF for short. The other members were the Republic of Icenia, and the Republic of Bloom. Since then, Bloom left the alliance, they decided to leave after a vote to forcefully kick them out of the alliance was being passed through by new UDF member Columbia. Since then, Southshire, Yoahtl, and SPQR have become full members of the alliance. The relations between the empire and Bloom was quite strained, due to arrogance on the side of the latter, which is why Imperial Truidence intended to vote aye on voting them out. Currently, the empire's relations with the rest of the members of the UDF are perfectly upstanding, with them all being on the friendliest of terms.
While the country is a member of the UDF, Icenia has a special relationship with Imperial Truidence. The empire joined the server in around the same time as Icenia returned to the civ genre. As both nations grew at the same time, trade and cooperation increased. Even as Imperial Truidence joined the UNC, there were talks to make an alliance with Icenia, if nothing more, a defensive treaty. Their talks ended in creating the UDF with Bloom after the fall of the UNC. Even since then, the nation's friendship have blossomed greatly. During the current time, they both greatly share infrastructure between them, like rails, ice roads, and defensive infrastructure. In addidtion there's now precedencefor each nation to build in the other, if there is need or desire to do so. They also have a friendly rivalry that occasionally escalates but has never led to war.
This military alliance was created shortly before the dawn of the UDF. At the time they were viewed as the greatest threat to the UDF, but the threat of the Entente was greatly exaggarated, and the alliances soon became close friends. The UDF later joined Entente and several others in the War of The Coalition, which only improved on the already positive relationship.
In the days between the fall of the UNC, and the rise of the UDF and Entente, there was great instability in the shallow -,-. As a result of this, earlier UNC member The Grand Duchy of Varkonia extended a hand and offered the empire a defensive treaty, which would mostly benefit Imperial Truidence, as in the terms of military power, Imperial Truidence didn't have much to come up with at the time. This treaty made for a lasting friendship between the empire and the grand duchy.
During the Infinity War, Imperial Truidence waged war alongside many other nations and alliances. This group of friendly co-combatants called themselves the coalition. The empire fought bravely, and the coalition came out victorious in the end. The relations forged in the fire of war is lasting, and brings peace and stability to the server to this day.
Imperial Truidence and Gabon are close friends, with a friendship treaty existing between them. Additonally, Emperor Spatula and Britishwanderer are secretly lovers.
Yoahtl is regarded as Imperial Truidence's closest ally as of the end of 2021, with grands plans to continue buiulding the relationship in the future.
