The Bothros Empire was founded on the 6th of August 2012, to succeed Dranoria in all Micronational activities, due to their inactivity. Upon the conquering of Kasugrad on 15th August 2012, Emperor Lance legally dissolved The Kingdom of Dranoria, and allowed the Principality of Optima and the Grand Duchy of Mitchell Park to continue as constituent nations under The Bothros Empire. Shortly thereafter, Prince Jeremy Oakes was appointed Chancellor of The Bothros Empire, and Lord of Kasugrad.

The Bothros Empire government is loosely based of the Feudal System, with nobles being appointed for great service to the Empire.

Etymology

The Bothros Empire is named after the scientific name of the Yellow Jawed Tommygoff, which is one of the most deadly snakes in the world.

History

Formation

The Bothros Empire was founded on the 6th of August 2012 by Emperor Edward Lance. He declared the region of Bothra (his own home) to be the Empire's capital, and began laying the groundwork for his conquest of Dranoria.

Battle of Kasugrad

On the 9th of August 2012, Emperor Lance officially declared war on Dranoria, and it was shortly conquered. Emperor Lance led the Bothros army against the Kasugrad garrison, which had promptly surrendered. Upon capturing Kasugrad, Emperor Lance forced Prince Jeremy Oakes, acting ruling of Dranoria, to sign a treaty that legally dissolved The Kingdom of Dranoria, and replacing it (for all intents and purposes) with the Bothros Empire. The treaty allowed Optima and Mitchell Park to continue as constituent nations.

Military

The Bothrian Military trains extensively in the use of melee weapons, primarily swords, as Emperor Lance believes that it encourages discipline, and that the wars of the future will be fought in close quarters. Emperor Lance currently serves as their Commander in Chief.

Government

The Bothrian Government is based around Feudal System. The Emperor rules over all of his domain, which is then divided between Lords, who rules over their own sections of land.

Upon the capture of Dranoria, the previous Dukes of Dranorian provinces were allowed to continue ruling over their land, in return for binding oaths of fealty to Emperor Lance.

Whilst Emperor Lance rules over the land as a dictator, he maintains a close inner circle of advisors from around The Empire that advise on important decisions.

Culture

Religion

The Bothros Empire is primarily an atheist nation, and although all religions are welcomed, preaching in public places is against the law, punishable by outlaw.
