The Ward Empire (Latin: Equitum Imperii) is the newest micronation in the Tauranga area of New Zealand. It is also a strong ally of the Arstotzkan Union, who is strongly supporting their independence and entered into diplomatic relations on 6 July 2022 with the signing of the Treaty of Two Nations. The Empire draws heavy inspiration and ideals from the Holy Roman Empire. Including incorporation of its features in its flag.
The name for the Ward Empire comes from its Supreme Emperor, Ben Ward. The Supreme Emperor lending his last name to the title of the Empire.
Although the Ward Empire is a newly founded Micronation it has had major roles and influences in its time. The first influential impact that the Ward Empire was part of was the founding of the Tauranga Commonwealth of Micronations where it is one of the three founding members. This Commonwealth allowed for more micronations to be created with assistance and to offer them the help that they needed. In conjunction with the Tauranga Commonwealth of Micronations being founded the Tauranga Allied Micronational Treaty Organization (TAMTO) who's main goal is protecting the TCM and all micronations in it, apart from the CDG and Grayson Country and Supreme Emperor is the Chairman of the Allied Military Council. On the 24th August 2022 the Ward Empire declared war against the Empire of Him due to that attack that accrued during the 4th meeting of the Tauranga Commonwealth of Micronations and became part of the Commonwealth - Empire War.
The flag of the Ward Empire takes many of the design features that the flag of the Holy Roman Empire had. The crown on top of the birds has the colours red and blue. These colours represent where the members of the Empire are from, with red being of the United Kingdom, and blue being New Zealand. The purple cross on the flag represents that it is a rich place, both in culture and money.
