Assyrian Star Empire
The Assyrian Star Empire is an empire of about 210 star systems in the southern spiral of the Nehellenium Galaxy. The Assyrian capital, Austere, is just to the south of the center of the empire. They are best known for their advanced technology. Assyrians are ethnically diverse, reflecting the empires' long history of expansion, conquest, and immigration.
The Empire had expanded for about 100 years, but now are stalled in their growth as they find themselves facing internal strife and attacks from outside, most notably from the Immortal Alliance. The Assyrian Empire joined the Anti-Immortal Alliance and are one of its leading factions.
Assyrian Space Force
The Assyrian Space Force is the unified military of the Assyrian Star Empire. The Space Force consists mostly of a navy, but it has three special divisions; the Commando Division, the Assyrian Ground Forces, and the Assyrian Armored Division. These let the Space Force perform more specific battle actions than were it only an interstellar navy.
The empire could be described as a loose arrangement of star systems which retain a Neo-Latvian cultural homogeneity and are unified through a common military and set of inter-planetary laws. Individual worlds govern themselves without much interaction with the interplanetary government, but they deal with it when it comes to trade within the empire and defense. The Assyrian Star Empire defends all of its worlds with the Assyrian Space Force. All worlds can rely on it for protection, but they may also form their own planetary defense forces and police forces. However, on occasion the Assyrian Commandos sometimes act as an intelligence force for the empire, secretly investigating the governments of individual planets for signs of corruption. All planets pay small tithes to the capital world.
The empire is run by the Heavenly Emperor of Assyria. He or she has the ultimate authority over the Assyrian Space Force and manages all diplomatic relations with other forces. The Emperor also oversees the domestic affairs of the capital world. The emperor unexpectedly died in R. 2,010, leaving his adopted daughter Empress Xianghua as the new ruler.
The Western Separatists
In BR 2,002, three star systems composed of 7 worlds on the western frontier seceded from the Assyrian Star Empire in a bloody civil war. They are now called the Czecho-Slovenian Republik. The civil war left an uneasy peace, and so they found themselves at war with the Assyrians again after a few years. This has left the Czech worlds largely destroyed, meaning that rogue Czech fleets frequently raid nearby Assyrian systems for supplies and technology. The Assyrians are no longer in a declared state of war with the Czechs, but border patrol action is common.
A small division was present at several battles of the Prussian-Monarchial Conflict.
