Imperium Aquilae(Greek:Αυτοκρατορία του Αετού) is a micronation located mostly in Greece. It is a Constitutional Monarchy. The empire claims a small part of the city of Larisa and several pieces of land in northern Greece. Its Motto is "Fides et Honores"(english:Loyalty and Honor). Its Founder and Emperor is Alcibiades I.It was a constituent state of the Empire of Lysimachia until its disolution.Its one of the few active Greek micronations.

History

Imperium Aquilae's Founder and Emperor is Alcibiades I. It declared its Independence from Greece on 4 October 2019. On 5 October the first Viceroy of the country, Christos Sevastianos was sworn into office. Imperium Aquilae became one of the founding members of the Organization of Allied Micronations Emperor Alcibiades I became the first Chairman of the Organization on 9 April 2020. On 20 April 2020 the micronation joined the League of Hellenistic Micronations,a organaziation with the purposes of development of diplomacy, mutual recognition, peace and cooperation between Hellenistic Micronations. On 5 May the state left the OAM and Alcibiades I resigned, after it was judged that it had no real purpose, as it mostly was in a state of inactivity.

On 24 April 2020 the biggest crisis in the young Empires history took place.Labour Minister George Baji along with parliament member Spyros Tambos attemped a pro-Socialist coup d'etat.However the movement failed to attract supporters and the short-lived People's Republic of the Red Eagle was defeated on 26 April at the battle of Fort Voras.All of the insurgents were found guilty for treason and exiled from Imperium Aquilae.

On 6 may 2020 the Empire meged with the Empire of Ovrestlia and the Grand Duchy of Paionia to form Lysimachia in order to stregthen the influence of the 3 micronations.This was short lived though as it was dissolved only a month later due to several dissagreements between the co-Emperors Alcibiades I and Thomas Marios I and the severe political instability(there were 4 unsuccesful governments in the span of just seven days).

After the dissolution of Lysimachia, Emperor Alcibiades I reformed the empire to stabilize and fix several flaws in the governing system.After this Reformation a new parliament,administrative division,and election system were introduced,which turned out to be much more stable and effective than the previously used ones.


Administrative Division

Imperium Aquilae consists of 5 counties,located in close proximity to eachother in the city of Larisa,Greece and the autonomous Grand Duchy of Paionia.

Counties: The Capital of the Empire,Cladarchia is located in the county with the same name and the second biggest settlement of the Empire,15 Chapels is also a county on its own.The other 3 counties are the 3 Forts of the nation,Fort Alexander,Fort Voras and Fort Demetrius.All counties (except Cladarchia) have governors responcible for the enforcement of the law,as well as for overlooking the electoral process,in order to manage better the territories of the Empire.Each Governor has to report to the Emperor atleast once per month about any news in their respenctive county.

Flag of the Grand Duchy of Paionia

Grand Duchy of Paionia: The Grand Duchy of Paionia used to be an independent micronation before it was a part of Imperium Aquilae.It was even founded years earlier(20th April 2017).However it soon fell into inactivity,until the 4th of April 2020,3 years after its enstablishment,when Alcibiades I was crowned Grand Duke after the resignation of Helena I and it became the junior partner in a personnal union under Imperium Aquilae.Paionia was one of the 3 founding members of the Empire of Lysimachia together with Ovrestlia and Imperium Aquilae.After the dissolution of Lysimachia however,Alcibiabes decided to integrate Paionia into Imperium Aquilae,as it was not active enough to justify being an independent nation.After the integration the grand duchy was given a modest amount of self government.Mariah I Ionian was given the title of Grand Duchess on September 10th 2020 after Alcibiades I stepped down.Paionia is by far the biggest and most populous subdivion of Imperium Aquilae.


Ideology of State

The Imperial Crown and the Government of Imperium Aquilae have adopted as an official principle of policy that the Empire continues the Hellenistic and Roman tradition and by extension consider itself successor of the Hellenistic kingdoms and the Roman Empire.It also takes inspiration from the German Empire,continuing its military tradition.The influence of Greek and Roman history is reflected in the titles which are adopted by Imperium Aquilae both for the members of the Imperial House and for the state officials,where as the German influence can be seen in the military honours of the state.
