Imperia is a Crown Dependency of the Empire of Austenasia situated in the Indian subcontinent. An enclave of the Indian city of Nagpur, Imperia is comprised of a residential property, inhabited by a family of four.
Imperia was established on 29 October 2015 after a request to be annexed by the Empire was made by its residents, one of whom, Ketan Uzagi, was appointed Governing Commissioner of the Crown Dependency upon its foundation.
Although under Austenasian sovereignty, Imperia is a Crown Dependency, and so is neither taxed nor has representation in Parliament. The Emperor holds absolute power over the Crown Dependency, exercised on his behalf by the Governing Commissioner, with Austenasian legislation not applying to Imperia unless it explicitly refers to it.
When originally annexed, Imperia had a population of five. However, its eldest resident, Tulsabai Pethe - grandmother of Uzagi - died aged 86 on 27 June 2023, reducing its population to the current number of four. This was only the second time in Austenasia's history that a member of its population had died. Jonathan I conveyed his personal condolences to the family, and announced a national state of mourning to last until the end of that month.
