The Empire is the name given to the land mass encompassing the 9 settlements south of The Wasteland. The Empire is run as a monarchy and is currently lead by its 8th Emperor, Ijuiin Kokoda.
The Empire was formed as a result of an alleigance between the leaders of Del, The Veldt, Seioko and the Ranjii Islands. A monarchy was implemented with the strongest of the four, Roji S. Del, dubbed the "Emperor", the one who would make ultimate rulings and critical decisions. Falling under him were the three subsequent leaders, named "Masters" and et-cetera.
Each rank reports directly to the rank above it. In this way, a dynamic army is formed.
