The Empire works hard to maintain a strong military. For it believes in the old saying by Vegitus, if you want peace, prepare for war. We maintain an active army at this time with naval and air units coming into development. Compulsary military service is enacted at age 18 when one finished preperatory school, or as young as 14 if that person drops out of school or becomes truant. We believe that our nation's keystone ability is the defend itself. And we believe in the Military as an effective program to develop stronger adults.

We are a very cannon tradition based upon our church. Our devotion to God is shown in everything we do. We love the arts and host multiple academys of art within our realm. We also love theater, music, and comedy, keeping our people laughing for years to come. We are steeped in tradition. Mis speaking or using improper titles is taboo in our nation and could end up giving you serious consequences.
Our nation celebrates two cultures prodominently. English (UK), and African. African came from most of the members being of that heritage, and english for the same reason but for the minority. We also have heavy doses of US Culture mixed into our culture.
For example, most of our State Government Meetings are held in Taverns or Pubs. We enjoy healthy doses of libations (some drink alcohol, some dont including his Imperial Majesty) We like to celebrate the great outdoors by having BBQ's and Parties in our nature reserve (Our BBQ Pit) More will come to this section as we develop our nation.
