The Holy Truidencian Empire (Norwegian: Hellige Trydensiske Riket/Heilage Trydensiske Riket, Latvian: Svētā Trūdencijas Impērija, Faroese: Heilaga Ríkið Trýdensia) , commonly known as Truidencia, HTE and (the now incorrect abbreviation) IT like its predecessors, is the direct successor to the iterations of Imperial Truidence through the ages.

The nation enjoyed for the duration of its founding a position of regional stability with many of it's neighboring countries being fellow members of the Forum of the Medi Sea.

Political System

The Truidencian political system is characterized by its three entities of legislative power: The elected Landsraad, The Riksraad and The Emperor. At the start of each month elections for Landsraad representatives are held, where any citizen may run for office. The landsraad’s primary purpose is proposing new laws and voting on internal issues that may arise. The Landsraad's decisions may however be vetoed by The Emperor, should he deem it absolutely necessary.

The names "Riksraad" and "Landsraad" are both of scandinavian origin. Their conception as institutions of Truidencia were inspired by the Dune universe's Imperial Landsraad and the historic aristocratic councils known as "Riksråd" that came to be in late-medieval scandinavia. Landsråd means "council of the land" and in turn "people", while Riksråd means "council of the realm", it can also be translated into "imperial/royal council". The letter Å was decided to be written as a double A to make it so that people not familiar with the letter Å would not get too confused and alienated while still retaining its foreign nature. While this leads people to pronounce their names incorrectly without knowing any better, it was deemed a necessary compromise.

History of The Empire

Troubled Beginnings

As a member of the UDF on Civclassic, despite having left the alliance during eotw, the empire was expected by many outsiders to continue its relationships with previous members. However this was not to be. An influx of new citizens as well as the return of previously inactive citizens made it so the government in the end confidently ended all hopes for renewed agreements in favour of going into SOTW on their own.

While this was going on Zeldronix made agreements with, and later joined what would become the Medi Sea Forum, wanting to settle alongside nations who shared his values and who would compliment the new direction Zeldronix wanted the nation to be headed.

The First Council

Within the first few days of the server, the Landraad building was constructed on the edge of Fox's Landing, allowing public meetings to be held. It was built by _aperson1 among others and designed by Zeldronix, Bladur and TheMobGrinder.

Ticket to Ride

In early June 2022 Hylian Cellist, with minor assistance from Zeldronix, Bladur and TheMobGrinder, designed what would become the Imperial Station in Nidaros. The building process of the station was time consuming and its target date of completion delayed as it took around two months before the station was finally built.

Bez Bless

Based on the real cathedral of Nidarosdomen, a replica was designed by Hylian_Cellist, with the assistance Zeldronix. It is one of, if not the largest religious building on the server.

Lirilla Coirëa

On late september twenty-first, Tar-Hylian Inglomo IV stepped off the paths of the world as he journeyed in many dark places. For many ages in the memory of the noble fruit fly he was lost and Hyldor fell into doubt that he would ever return. Finally on September twenty-fifth Hylian returned to revive the crumbling city of Andeon, he drove his army against the hordes of sea-folk storming the shores and calmed the ferocious tidal waves of the Medi Sea with his kingly gaze. He feasted with Zeldronix, restoring the long forgotten ties between Hyldor and Truidencia. In honor of this he was given a new name. Hylian Coirea, Hylian the Living. He who had returned from the dead and brought with him new life for his people.

Monarchs of Truidencia

Emperor Spatula I of Bez

Reigned from The 13th of December, 2021 to The 27th of February, 2022

  • Took the title of "Holy Truidencian Emperor" upon his ascension.
  • Founded "The Fourth Truidencian Empire". The name has since fallen out of use.

Emperor Zeldronix I of Bez

Has Reigned since The 27th of February, 2022

  • Chose "Emperor of The Truidencians" as public title, and has used it for the majority of his reign.

National Policy

The internal practices of the Empire.

Flag Laws

National Flags

The Truidencian "State Flag" may only be flown by the government or with permission from the government, while the "Civil Flag" may be flown by anyone.

Illegal Flags

Officially there are no constitutional laws dictating whether or not certain flags are allowed to be flown or owned, besides the national flags.

Republican Flags

Despite lack of constitutional laws, it has been the policy of Emperor Zeldronix to discourage the usage of so called "Republican flags" commonly associated with the once proposed "Bezlandic Commonwealth", and the name "Republican Truidence" which was a joke on the name Imperial Truidence, along with various variations of "Bezland". These flags generally consisted of a horisontal tricolour with the colours red, yellow and white, starting from the top, sometimes with a blue cross saltire.

Imperial Truidence

The flag of the First, Second and Third Empire are forbidden by imperial decree, seen by the emperor as a symbol of reactionary elements of the nation and disaproval of his ascension to the throne.

Economic System

The Empire's economic system as conceptualized by Icyski is based on a theory of an economy where all members of society are encouraged to contribute to the nation’s internal flow of materials, goods and capital via "missions" and "quests" to aquire materials and items of varying degree of complexity. These are made available by the government are all paid upon completion with the empire's own national currency known as "Imperial Crowns", which can be used as legal tender within the empire.

Much of the point of the system is to reduce the pursuit of mining diamonds for the sole purpus of using it as currency when it could be used for better means, such as for tools and reinforcements, thus allowing more time to be spent persuing other and potentially more valuable goals that benefit the nation instead.

Miscellaneous Information

  • There is no official way of pronouncing "Truidencia". For example the first "I" is often left unpronounced and the ending "cia" has been known to be pronounced in various ways.
  • To some degree there is also no official spelling of Truidencia either.
  • The Emperor/Empress and their successors has traditionally been required to be Norwegian.

Ethnic Makeup

While the vast majority of the population of the nation, in all its iterations have been minecrafters. With most being human in appearance and nature, known collectivly as Truidencians. A group of anthropomorphic fox people however, named "Thruittans" are recognized as a minority ethnic group in Truidencia who in recent times have become increasingly celebrated and grown in number. They see the region the Empire has named "Thruittania", which spans the forests between the cities of Valinor and Snowpeak as their homelands. In imperial mythos, Thruittans are believed to be the ancestors of modern Truidencians, with those still retaining their animalistic appearance being seen as pure-blooded "Thruittans" foremost and Truidencian second.

Notable Thruittans include Emperor Zeldrin, Pontifex May and Konsul Hylian Cellist.

Thruittans are represented as a culture in Civtoria3, being around 20% of the population of Truidencia.

Religion

Bezism

Bezism is the official and state religion of Truidencia, no other religion is allowed. Ever after Emperor Bez committed sudoku and ascended from this mortal coil, the religion has been entrenched in truidencian society, including politics. The current pontifex of Bezism is GenericLaqey. The worship of Bez was also practiced before his ascension to heaven, though more as duty to the Truidencian state rather than the more mystic devotion it has formed into in the present.
