Alluria was originally a colony, and later a province, of the Empire of Adammia, located in the region of South Adammia. Measuring 158m² in size, it consisted of a large terraced house in Birmingham which was home to 7 registered citizens.

Etymology

The name Alluria was invented by Luca Panconi when he discussed setting up the original colony with Emperor Adam I in October 2016. He stated that he had the name in mind for some time, but did not elaborate on where exactly it came from.

History

Alluria was founded on 8 October 2016 a few weeks after Emperor Adam I moved in to halls of residence to study at the University of Birmingham, following discussions between the Emperor and his flatmate Luca Panconi, who had just enlisted in the Adammic Army. The colony initially consisted of the Emperor's and Panconi's adjacent rooms at Liberty Court, Pershore Road, in Edgbaston. Over the next few months, Alluria would expand to include the majority of Flat 53's residents's rooms, as well as the flat's central corridor and main kitchen / living area. In March 2017, the Emperor handed civilian control of the colony to his flatmate Madam Anna Darke, making her governor. Meanwhile, Panconi had set up Luca's Bar and Casino where the Joe Daniels card games were invented, developing the local culture of the colony.

In June 2017, the residents of Alluria left the original territory, and most began to move into new accomodation at 26 Rookery Road in Selly Oak. In September 2017, the Emperor partitioned the colony, abandoning the original territory and creating the new counties of North and South Alluria, the former being the residence of many of his former flatmates at Rookery, and the latter being his own residence on Dawlish Road, which he now shared with Lord Sir Alex Helliker, his legal advisor and an Ordo Vladius member.

When the Empire of Adammia Act 2017 was passed in October 2017, both North Alluria and South Alluria became individual provinces. North Alluria assumed the name of Alluria, whereas South Alluria became known as Serkatia.

In September 2018, Alluria was moved again, to another new house a short distance away.

Alluria was dissolved in August 2019, after most of its residents graduated from the university. Its territory was ceded back to the United Kingdom.

Features

Alluria consisted of a large, 9-person terraced house. Although not an official Adammic Army base, the quarters of General Sir Luca Panconi acted as the de-facto headquarters of the 2nd Infantry Division. Situated in Alluria's kitchen, Luca's Bar & Casino (formerly simply Luca's Bar) was the only establishment of its kind in Adammia. However, the casino element was simply a Twister spinner acting as a Roulette table.
