The Emerian Empire and United Commonwealths is a large empire situated in the Galaxia Vipiriath. Emeria began with a DSM expedition lost tens of thousands of years ago in the Vipiriath Spiral that developed into a powerful force. Emeria's population, industry - and military - has grown to extreme size, dwarfing just about every other military (and industry) in the Brikverse.
Emeria has a long history. Many eons ago, in ages mostly forgotten, a really hardcore expedition of DSM colonists arrived in the Vipiriath Spiral looking to colonize a new, hardcore front that, unlike Galaxia Nehellenium, wasn't settling. In short, they wanted more danger, isolation, and to be completely badass in entirely unexplored space. The expedition first landed on modern-day Emeridad (capitol of the empire), and built their capital there. In nearly no time whatsoever, the Deadly Spacemen spread across the totality of Galaxia Vipiriath. But this age could not last.
As their borders across this new, wild expanse of unclaimed space, the colonists of the Vipiriath discovered fortresses in the countless asteroid belts around the galaxy built in forgotten eons. As one party explored one such fort, they accidentally activated the fortress, which in turn activated all the other fortresses. As this chain reaction finished, an impenetrable field of GT (Green Transplant) spread along the fringes of the galaxy, trapping the galaxy's inhabitants within. Distressed, the capitol tried to send communiques to the Deadly Spaceman - in vain. When communications ceased entirely with the colonists in the Vipiriath, the Deadly Spaceman himself led a fleet to investigate. His grand fleet arrived and tried to enter, but was obliterated by the field's energies. It was there that The Deadly Spaceman saw the chaos that had overtaken the galaxy before him: the colonists, in panic, destroyed each other in brutal conflicts as the trapped colonizers searched up and down for someone to blame for their peril.
It is said that as he watched the madness unfold, fleeing from his now-ruined grand dreadnought, wept for his trapped comrades, damning the force that created the field. Within the fields, total madness erupted, and the galaxy-wide empire collapsed entirely. When all was said and done, all civilization in the galaxy was in ruins, with the survivors gathered into new factions. Perhaps the most notable - and troubled - among these was the young Kingdom of Castille. It's neighboring kingdoms, Antiva, Leon, Aragon, Navarra, Asturias, and Galicia constantly warred with one another, only uniting to utterly crush much larger and deadlier threats as they arose. But all this changed when a prodigy of his or her time emerged in the impoverished, backwater nation of Castille.
The name this character took was Voynich - Caesar Voynich, after some emperors he spoke of that existed in another time, a different existence. Voynich arrived in Castille, and quickly impressed all with his intelligence, guile, ambition, and mastery of magic. He rose to the top, and turned Castille into a major power. From here, he united the kingdoms, some with force, and others diplomatically, and formed the Emerian Empire. Under his iron-fisted reign of Emeria, teknology and the sciences advanced, and Metal was introduced. Immediately it gained a following, absorbing all of Emeria's populace, securing a place for Metal forever in Emeria. The Empire's first formal military officially began as hordes of screaming Metal Warriors. Using his mastery of magic and witchcraft, Voynich opened Wargates to the surrounding worlds of Evon and Vaktovia. Like true minifigs, the Imperial forces swarmed through every portal, overwhelming every force they encountered. Before long, each world was conquered by Voynich's soldiers, and civilization returned soon after to those worlds. Rinse and repeat this is pretty much for next few thousands of years.
Emeria's population grew immensely, due to immigration and births, prompting the need to conquer more lands. Emeria's teknology continued to advance, but the economy began to suffer under the weight of the immense population. Voynich solved this problem through a variety of ways. His first option was to develop an efficient system that would categorize every citizen of the empire into assignments based on their skills and gifts. Secondly, Voynich revolutionized the Cuthulic faith, bringing into existence the Dice Papacy to, and creating the position of "Divine" to rule over it. Thirdly, Voynich vastly increased the quality of Emeria's military training, equipment, vehicles, and ships. Following this, he liberated himself from directly controlling the military by creating a effective military command (The EHMC), and then turned his new military on the rest of Galaxia Vipiriath. Finally, Voynich utilized all these tools for the last option he exploited: genocide. Using the Dice Papacy, Voynich condemned Peaches and non-Minifigs as vermin, mutant scum to be exterminated, and used the military to herd them into ghettos. Then, he built tensions between Yellows and the now minorities, before ultimately unleashing the Yellow populace upon these minorities in an event now known as the First Exalted March. In just a week, all Non-Yellow minifigs were dead, fleeing, or being subjected to unspeakable atrocities. When the First Exalted March ended, the Emerian Empire had taken another major step toward it's modern status.
Years of teknological and scientific development led to the discovery of Slipspace travel, and with this mode of FTL (Faster Than Light) travel, the Emerians were able to colonize / conquer even faster than they already could with Light Speed Travel (LST). At this time, Emerian scientists also developed a method of opening warpgates. This allowed for first contact with the outside Brikverse, but in complete secret. Voynich, realizing that the empire was now too big for him to rule solely, gathered 4 of the most skilled in their areas, Military, Economy, Science, and Diplomacy, and crafted their consciousnesses into an internal AI system to preserve them (and give them pseudo-immortal properties). He called them VAMI, and began his trend of leaving the empire for various amounts of time, returning, and vanishing again.
- Emeria itself originates from a much older concept Vami had of a nation called the "Vamtopian Empire." They still share a few similarities, like the symbol now emblazoned on the Emerian flag.
- The symbol used on the Emerian flag was first created in human blood, when Vami crushed a mosquito on the wall above his desk in his room in Alaska.
- The idea to make Emeria based off the Spanish (particularly Castillian Spanish) empire first came to Vami in his Spanish class in his freshman year of high school.
