The Polska Empire, also referred as the Kingdom of Poland, is a supernation born from the originally founded coalition of tribes that usurp the conquest of the Roman Republic and Empire with their territory. Since the founding of the Empire since the 55 B.C. or 1 K.I., the Polska Empire controls one-third of the world. The remaining remnants of the world either belong to the Unification Council of Europe, Republic State of America, African Federation and African Conglomerate.
Prior to the conquest of the Polska Empire after the fall of the Roman Empire, the Empire only consists of the countries Belarus, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovakia and Ukraine. The Empire started its conquest against the Georgian Empire, their enemy in conquering the most of the Asian region. Since the fall of the Georgian Empire on 2062 K.I., the Empire had grown much larger within the next five years until finally invading the Philippines. It was never revealed if the Philippines was the last to fall among the conquered countries, but it is possible not to be, given that the Empire had assigned the Philippines to be Sector 44 out of 66 sectors, five of them had been under the Georgian Empire.
Major Cities Edit
The capital of the Empire is Warsaw, Poland itself where Wilanów Palace, the largest palace in the entire world is located, considered to be the Empire's seat of power and the King's official residence. Aside from such, the Empire also considers Moscow and Saint Petersburg in Russia, and Vilnius in Lithuania as an extension of their power. There are countless other royal palaces throughout the three countries.
See: TimelineThe Empire traces its cultural origins back since the rise of the Roman Republic in 55 B.C. with the conquest of Julius Caesar to expand the Republic into the Roman Empire. With the combined forces of the Polish and neighboring tribes, they had chosen Julius Leszczynski I as their king to fight against the invasion, stopping the Roman Empire from ever capturing the rest of their region. They consider such time as the "golden era in the worst of times".
Conquest of the Philippines Edit
The Empire practices absolute monarchy, meaning that the Royal Family holds most or all governmental power, though there is also a bicameral legislature in effect, at least in the Empire's homeland. While policies of the Empire vary depending on the reigning monarch, its succession is based on the Social Darwinism where members of the royal family fight against each other for whoever wants to become the next monarch by lying, cheating and murdering their way to the top.
Lower nobility controls much of the business and bureaucracy outside the Royal Family, and judging by the number of legal and illegal business that appear in occupied countries, capitalism is widely encouraged. The residents of the conquered nations can become Honorary Polish citizens known as Niska (Polish for "low"), and while not genuine to be a Polish citizen free from discrimination, they are entitled to the same basic rights. Those who refuse to accept honorary citizenship are consigned to live in rundown ghettos, while those who accept it may live in the prosperous Polish colonial cities.
Though the Empire is a free religion nation according to the citizen's will, the Empire is primarily subjected to Roman Catholicism. Any member of the Royal Family, subjected to convert religion, is expected to abdicate his right to the throne.
Main article: Polska MilitaryThe Polska Military includes all Armed Forces of the Polska Empire. It is believed to be one of the largest, most powerful, and most technologically advanced military in the world.
It is unclear when the term "Polska" was coined in the history of Uncharted, but when used as an ethnic descriptor, it seems only to refer to citizens whose ancestry was from the root of the Polska Empire. Natural-born though still continued to use their demography according to which country they came from: such as Poles (Poland), Russian (Russia), Lithuanian (Lithuania), Belarusian (Belarus), Estonian (Estonia), Latvian (Latvia), Moldovan (Moldova), Romanian (Romania), Slovak (Slovakia), and Ukrainian (Ukraine). Honorary citizens were given the demography of "Niska", and citizens of conquered countries were referred as "Strefa".
The Empire uses K.I. or "Kalendarz Imperium" calendar which is set to date the first Polish super-king, Julius I, upon election by the united Polish tribes to battle their conquerors at the heights of the Roman Republic, becoming the first member of the modern Polska Empire's royal family. Consequently, it is dated 55 years ahead than the Gregorian Calendar that is used in our world. With this in mind, it should be noted that 1 K.I. is equivalent to 55 B.C., and 55 K.I. is equivalent to 1 A.D. Given that the first book, Uncharted, is dated to happen in 2072 K.I., it will then be year 2017 in the Gregorian Calendar.
