Full name: The Anglo-Germanic Empire of Karlsland

Government Type: Federal constitutional monarchy with bicameral legislature

Languages: German, English, Danish, Polish, Swedish, Norwegian, Celtic

Capital and Largest City: Sudentor, population 21.5 million

Currency: The Mark

Population: 9.46 trillion

National Religion: Karlslandic Christianity

Head of State: Empress Maria V

Head of Government: Prime Minister Erica Bachmeier [CP]

National animal: Golden Eagle

Brief Overview: The Anglo-Germanic Empire of Karlsland is a very large, FTL-capable nation covering roughly 93 major inhabitable planets, and 110 terraformed systems. There are also more than three hundred systems who have a population of 1 billion or less, almost all of which are terraformed. The capital planet of Earth is the third planet from the yellow dwarf Sol, near the edge of the Milky Way galaxy. The country is almost entirely populated by non-humans, especially those of the Homo genus. The dominant party in the two-house legislative branch is the Centralist party, which is a neutral party that favors no species over any others. Its biggest competitor is the Non-Humanist Party, which favors non-human sapient life, apart from equines, who almost universally stick to the Equine Party, the most liberal of the Big Three parties.

Geography:

There are many inhabited planets in Karlsland control. The most heavily populated ones are, in order:

Image
Earth, population roughly 13 billion.

Image
Usea, population 10 billion. Has a very similar climate to Earth, albeit wetter.

Image
Kokytos, population 8 billion. Surprising, since it's colder than GWO's heart.

Image
Holle, population roughly 6 billion. It is far larger than Earth, but its population is lower due to the harsher, drier climate.

Image
Amazonia, population roughly 5.5 billion. Roughly the same size as Earth, almost all dense jungle.

Image
Mars, population roughly 3 billion. It is the smallest of the terraformed planets, and maintains a terraform thanks to gravity intensifiers deep in the mantle.

Government:

Independence: 1871 (Self-declared, non-war based)
WA Category: Capitalist paradise
Type: Constitutional monarchy.
Capitol: Sudentor, 21.5 million, founded 1581.
Administrative Regions: 110.
Constitution drafted October 9, 1871.
Electoral system: For leader, none. (Birthright only) For Prime Minister, elections held at the end of each minister's life. Since the current PM is a youkai, that may as well be no election to humans.
Legislature: Bicameral.
Legal system: 68 systemic courts controlled by the Supreme Court of Karlsland, judges must be appointed by the Royal Family.
Suffrage: 18, both genders. (Womens rights c. 1955)
Political parties:

Centralist party:
The largest party in Karlsland, it takes the stance of the traditional monarchy-supporting political party. Its members make up roughly 45% of the population. Is fairly conservative, but is nowhere near being the most so. Believes in equal rights for humans and non-humans alike. It also strongly believes in continuing our control over our colonies.

Non-Humanist Party:
The second-largest party in Karlsland and the most conservative. It makes up roughly 24% of the population. Differs from most similar parties due to its total lack of Antisemitism, primarily due to the fact that there aren't enough Jews in the country to warrant it. Instead, it targets the humans in the nation, claiming that they are slowing us down due to their inherent lack of both physical and magical strengths. Apart from that, it does not differ significantly from the Centralist party. The party has always been very strong, albeit it almost imploded in the 23rd century.

Empirist Party:
An expansionist party, making up 14% of the population. Fairly similar to the Libertarian party of Liberion when it existed, it is considered by some to be a direct descendant of it. Believes in exploring and expanding Karlsland indefinitely. More extreme members believe in making first contact upon discovery of sentient life on the planet as soon as they gain an interest in space travel, instead of upon them obtaining faster-than-light capability.

Tank Striker:
Image
The newest incarnation of the Tank Strikers, although they are lighter on body armor than the Battle Armors, they are faster, and since they don't use nearly as much magical energy to run as a regular jet Striker, the Witch using them can make much stronger shields.


Powered body armor:
Image
MS1A3 Primary battle armor (Officer version, also shown with night scope on helmet)

Image
MS2A6 main mechanized armor (MI2A8 is designation for Meltrandi version)


Mechanized infantry:

Image
MI4A5 heavy mechanized armor


Image
MI7A3 centauroid mechanized armor


Image
Once the big superfighters started to take to the stars, Witches found themselves outclassed in the final frontier. After around 2200, Striker designs stopped parallelling those of fighter aircraft and took their own form. This proved to be a good thing indeed for Witches, as it enabled them to evolve in such a way that while they would never again outclass true fixed-wing aircraft in space; for special operations, close-range attacks on starships, and nearly any mission below 10,000 meters, the Witch is still a critical part of the Karlsland military. Shown above is the primary fighter Striker of Karlsland, the Caliburn. Below is the A-10G Super Warthog. Both in atmospheric uniform. The one below the A-10 is the EB-2G Super Spirit, designed specifically for Meltrandi.

Erd-based Non-Humans in Karlsland

Non-humans make up roughly 85% of the Erd-based population. Most are youkai, which was formerly a term to describe demons in ancient Fuso but has since come to mean more or less any sapient non-human of the Homo genus. The True Youkai class includes, in order of prevalence:

Image

Homo cornicem
The most common form of youkai, and the least varied, with only 3 subspecies: H. cornicem cornicem, shown above, H. cornicem rubrum, which have longer, less humanoid noses and reddish skin, and H. cornicem solis, which is discussed lower down on the page. Physically, they are on the shorter end of average for humans, and have a wingspan usually no greater than 2.5 meters. Tengu have black hair, and black-feathered wings, although the African morph has golden-brown feathers, and the Tundratic morph has pure white feathers and hair. All subspecies except solis are known for their astronomical speeds, both on land and in the air. Average top speed on land/air is 2200/3500 kmh, although some have been clocked in the air at excess of 6400 kmh. Their natural range in Karlsland is mostly limited to the mountainous regions in Karlsland proper, in a thick band that hugs the Alps. In the colonies, they naturally occur on the southern tip of Greenland, in the Faroe Islands, and near the shores in German Southwest Africa.

We only have one, filthy rich, flaky, carefree Border Youkai. And she likes it that way, mind you. It's hard enough to keep one filthy rich woman with the power to warp reality under control. We don't need more.

Homo sapiens laniatus

Non-hominid sapients:

Pseudodraconae
The humanoid, or 'False' dragons, contain some of the most magically and physically powerful beings currently recognized in Karlsland. As a result, almost the entire genus is banned from the military. There have been a few exceptions, namely, the Imperial commander of the Marine Korps, but for the most part pseudodraconids are banned, along with dragons. While some non-human supremacists fantasize about lifting this ban (For Pseudodraconids), most are too smart to even attempt to do so.

Image

Pseudodraco prasino

Image

Pseudodraco albucornis

Image

Pseudodraco tyrranus

Image

Pseudodraco norvegicus

Image
Full humanoid form
Image
Semi-draconid form (20% draconid)
Image
Semi-draconid form (60% draconid)
Image
Full dragon form

Pseudodraco pseudodraconis
The type species of the Pseudodraconids, and the most powerful. Also known as the Weredragon, for obvious reasons. While they aren't terribly spectacular outside of full-dragon morph (Which is rarely seen, as morphing much past 65% is extremely painful), they are considered the most powerful of all non-human species magically, due to the fact that they can naturally manipulate aether (The stuff all Karlsland magic runs on) directly. While all Witches have limited control over aether as well (It enables them to fly on brooms, as well as accelerate and steer Strikers and put up shields), no species has quite the level of control over it as the weredragon. They are also known to be extremely honorable.

Lamiae
The family Lamiae comprises the True Laminas (Genus Lamia), and the Medusas (Genus Medusa). Both are found in Karlsland, in varying numbers. Some are, in fact, poisonous, although they are easily recognizable. (OOC: Poisonous species have their species name in blue). Technically, Lamina are divided into categories based on natural range. Lamina are from the Middle East and Africa, whereas Naga are from India, Australia and the New World. Lamina make up roughly 12% of the non-human population.

Image

Lamina lamina (Make up about 23.4% of laminae population)

Image

Lamina mulciber (Make up about 18.5% of laminae population)

Image

Lamina smaragdus (Make up about 13.3% of laminae population)

Image

Lamina plumatus (Make up about 9.5% of laminae population)
The most dangerous of all recognized species. Native to the colorful Indian jungles, where bright coloration is an asset to a predator. Their venom is made up mainly of two things: A neurotoxin, a hemotoxin, and a heaping dose of serotonin. The hemotoxin goes after your blood cells, killing them. The neurotoxin, a calcium channel inhibitor, messes with your muscles ability to move. Meanwhile, the serotonin goes straight to your brain, causing to think you are in even more excruciating pain than you actually are.

Thank God they're civilized, or they'd be controlling Karlsland right now.

Aliens in Karlsland


Due to the sheer number of alien life forms out there, they make up an enormous percentage of the total population, roughly 60%. They come in all sizes, and quite a few of them do not look hominid in the least, although many do.

Image

Equum anthros, home planet Hadar III

Image

Harpiya pandion, home planet Usea

Image

Harpiya corvus, home planet Usea

Image

Harpiya tyto, home planet Usea

Image
Female shown, males have bright red feathers and hair.

Harpiya cardinalis, home planet Usea

Image

Harpiya paradisaea, home planet Usea

Image
Yes, there IS a tail. Deal with the lack of visibility it has.

Trichea sapiens, home planet Usea

Image

Hominem musculus, home planet Amazonia

Image

Psi atropa, home planet unknown

Image

Exahominem medusa, home planet Gn'darr

Image

Arachnohominem arachnohominem, home planet Atrax

Image

Thaumoctus decapod, home planet unpronounceable

Image
Neuroi in front, behind is a Shadow Demon, a trademark of Neuroi magic

Corniger umbra, home planet N'orr
The main species of one of the most powerful empires in the intergalactic community with over a billion galaxies under their control, The N'orri (Or Neuroi, as they are known in most Earth-based languages), have been exploring the Milky Way for millenia. In actuality, Karlsland was discovered by the Neuroi, not the other way around. A group of pirates found the planet Erd millenia ago, and rumors of a planet filled to the brim with minerals and resources spread throughout the Neuroi underground. Due to its remoteness, Earth wasn't really invaded by the pirates in numbers until the 20th Century, first at the beginning (Once in 1914, second in 1939), then in larger numbers near the end, culminating in the Tird Neuroi Invasion in the 2010s, which was quickly put down with the help of the Neuroi Empire.

Neuroi themselves are generally short, with adult males reaching at most 5'7" on average, excluding the antlers, and females reaching 5'3". They have pale blue, dark blue, black or red hair, which also covers their antlers, and pale blue, pale green, grey or very, very dark brown eyes. They are known and feared throughout the Karlsland Empire's restaurants for having bottomless stomachs and even more bottomless wallets: Neuroi that have moved to Karlsland tend to be quite wealthy. Their immense magical skill also makes them excellent Witches, and their knowledge of machinery makes them great additions on the crew of any ship.
(OOC: Will add more of these as I go along)

Types of magic used in Karlsland:

There are numerous schools of magic in Karlsland. While there are many that use the pure (Old) forms, most use a combination of two or three of the five main groups.

Karlsland magic:
Image
The old Karlslandic magic is the simplest to learn, and the hardest to master by far. It relies primarily on avoiding magical attacks and putting up shields or barriers for defense. For attack, it relies primarily on saturation of the enemy's area with magic bullets, or danmaku. These are often set up in intricate patterns, sometimes with patterns within patterns, and the bullets are placed close together to reduce the chance of dodging the attacks. It is rather inefficient for very long-range attacks, as the lasers it normally produces are rather small (Although they can snake about in curvy lasers). What long-range attacks are capable with Karlsland magic are extremely powerful, long-range beam attacks called Sparks. It is used often by most Witches due to it being excellent for close- and medium-range, especially at high speeds. Its signature device is the Striker Unit, which is an entirely passive device used to enhance speed and magical power significantly.


Old Belkan magic:
Image
One of the more common forms of magic, often used by the more elite, as it is the more knightly form of magic. Like Mid-Childan magic, it makes use of devices made specifically for use by mages, called Armed Devices. These are generally more primitive and combat-oriented than the Mid-Childan Intelligent Devices. They make use of the Cartridge System, an upgrade to IDs, ADs and Striker Units that momentarily boosts its power output by consuming so-called "cartridges". Cartridges are capsules (shaped like blank rifle rounds) containing compressed magical energy. When used in a Device, it releases that energy all at once, providing a power boost. Belkan Magic is (usually) poor for long-range, but excellent for close range, especially at low and medium speeds. At high speeds, it is about equal with Karlsland Magic, albeit harder to control. What long-range attacks it does have, like Karlsland magic, are extremely powerful and are usually a type of Summoning attack, although they aren't always Summoning attacks.

Mid-Childan Magic
Image
The best magic in Karlsland for long-range attacks, which it specializes in. Mid-Childan magic is characterized by Intelligent Devices and a heavy reliance on beam and one-directional shot attacks. It is fairly simple to learn, but some of the more powerful means of boosting one's power are extremely dangerous, even lethal to the user. A signature type of attack is the Breaker, which is a powerful, long-range beam attack that absorbs energy from the surrounding area before firing it in a massive, devastating beam.

New Belkan magic:
Image
The newest form of magic It is a merging of the Old Belkan's cartridge system with the Mid-Childan's Intelligent Device. The result is an ID that is excellent all-around, and capable of enormous power at medium- and short-range, at the cost of being useless at long-range. Frequently used by tank Witches who often end up getting up close and personal with their enemies. It can use long-range attacks, but their range is reduced significantly. It cannot use Breakers.

Coruscant Magic:
Image
Almost as old as Old Belkan magic, it encompasses the usage of the Force by both Jedi and Sith. It has very many practical uses, and the martial arts associated with it can be applied to any bladed weapon. Unlike other forms of magic, highly powerful attacks using the Force do little to the user. Unfortunately, anti-magic fields and neutralizer weapons are devastating to Force users, completely blocking their supernatural abilities as opposed to any of the other forms of magic, which are merely hindered by it. As a result, Old Belkan magic is generally preferred to it by people who wish to learn something knightly. Without AMFs, however, it is about equal to Old Belkan at close range.
