Palaces in Your Nation

Postby Hyggemata » Fri Mar 17, 2017 9:07 am

A palace, by its most primitive definition, is a residence of a monarch. While it need not have any governmental functions, it often served as the monarch's office building in addition to his residence. What are some famous palaces in your nation?

Name of palace: Serana-kiyomi
Date of construction: 696 to 731
Location: Serana-kiyomi (capital city from 701 to 894)
Constructed for: Momu I
Current owner: the Crown
Current state: fell into ruins in the 900s, currently partially restored
Current use: tourist destination
Info: Constructed during an era in which Hyggemata, a Germanic kingdom, was rapidly evolving under continental (in canon, an amalgamation of ancient Japan, which itself was under the influence of classical China) influence. Government was centralized, albeit painfully, and the nascent bureaucracy & civil service was reaching the first rungs of maturity. Hyggemata was the most powerful and leading Germanic state, of which there were several dozen, and the Hyggematic dynasty decided that it was time to show the continental kingdoms that Hyggemata was a civilized state, which at that time meant a centralized, bureaucratic government operating under an established, codified administrative law. Momu I never lived to see the completion of his dream palace, having died in 702; neither did his son, Meko V, who died in 728; it was only under his grandson Semimu I, that the palace was finally completed.

The palace was constructed under the continental style, with an array of symmetrically laid out buildings, with the most important ones occupying a central axis. It was situated in the north side of the newly constructed capital city, and several concentric, square walled compounds delineated the royal quarters, the government departments, and other important buildings. The scale of the palace stretched Hyggemata to her very limits in resource and labour. Regional warrior garrisons were ordered to lay down their arms and become quarriers and carpenters to furnish the palace with continental grandeur. Large amounts of domestic crops and craft products were sold to invite continental artisans and engineers to make sure that the palace enjoyed the latest continental fittings. At the end of the day, it is estimated that around 1/6 of the national product of Hyggemata between 700 and 731 went into building the palace. Peasants were taxed heavily, and military actions were suspended, but the resulting palace was nothing short of splendid.

At the height of centralized, bureaucratic rule in Hyggemata, between 701 and 784, maintaining the palace at peak condition was no easy task. Government ministers regularly diverted more than 10% of the annual budget to upkeep of the premises. After 784, with the ascension of Kamu I, the government chose to allow parts of the palace to fall into disrepair in order to cut taxes to appease regional rebellions, which were gaining speed due to the heavy exploitation by the state. At the time, not only did the state extract crops from peasants at the rate of 1/4 of the total yield, peasants were also responsible for supplying the government with certain types of goods. Cloth is one commodity that each household had to submit to the government annually; certain kinds of local specialties, as well as jewel and precious metal ores were equally subject to government levy. Then, in order to suppress the warrior class, the government established a peasant conscript army in 689, and all male peasants aged between 21 and 31 were required to serve three years in the army, and they remained on reserve duty until aged 61. Finally, all peasants, male and female, were required to give 30 days of free labour per annum to the government to participate in public works. All these burdens on the populace has made the Temu Dynasty (ruled 674 to 784) very unpopular; the dynasty died out under Queen Kokenu I. Kamu was selected by the Megamuraomos ("great chief minister") to succeed the throne; originally a farmer, Kamu was a seventh-generation descendant of Queen (sovereign) Uikau I. The Megamuraomos selected Kamu with the expectation that he would be pliant and inexperienced; however, Kamu turned out to be a very hard-headed young king whose reign was another period of great reform.

Kamu's disdain for court life partly allowed the palace to deteriorate, but there is much evidence to show that the palace, though grand and impressive, did not quite suit the taste and climate of Hyggemata. The great audience hall, measuring 95 by 55 meters, and rising to a peak height of 45 meters, required some ingenuity to keep warm during winters. Several days before an event in the hall, the stone tiles would have to be dug up, and caskets of boiling water were buried into the foundation, which were then retrieved, re-heated, and reburied; this process was repeated several times until the base of the building was warm. On the night before the audience, the stone tiles were then slowly heated up slowly in water, to prevent them from cracking, as would happen if held over open flames; the tiles were then laid back into the chamber. The whole process consumed so much fuel that Kamu ordered it stopped.

The expenses associated with the palace then led Kammu to, amongst other reasons, remove his palace to Sera-biko-kiyomi.

Following the official establishment of the modern Democratic Republic of Gandoor in 1904, the palace became the property of the new government and, in 1910, was officially opened to the public as the Museum of the Nzardgrad of Gandoor.

This nation is what happens had the Anglo-Japanese Alliance developed further and resulted into something like Austria-Hungary. As a result, the USSR takes Japan's place in the Axis, and Japan is still part of the allies during World War 2. The war ended due to fear of nuclear war.

Name of palace: The Imperial Palace
Date of construction: 1745-1760
Location: Kingstown, Rhodevus
Constructed for: The Senate, Seat of Power and Presidential Home
Current owner: Queen Diana Wolff
Current state: In near perfect condition following the 2010 renovation
Current use: Senate, House of Commons, Museum, Monarch's Home, Orphanage
Info: The Imperial Palace was built during the great expansion of the Rhodeve Empire, which started in 1715. Nearly every stone, piece of marble, brick, etc. came from Rhodevus's international colonies, territories and dependencies, making it one of the most expensive projects in Rhodeve history. On top of this, it has always been filled with jewels and wonders from around the empire, showing the world the wealth of Rhodevus.

After the fall of the Rhodeve Empire in 1845, it was transitioned to become the home for the monarch and seats for both houses of parliament, due to its prime location in the exact center of Kingstown, and surrounded the True Seat of Power in Rhodevus, a 1,600 year old tree named the Soul Tree. It's lower levels are still used as a museum to house the extremely delicate pieces of artwork and history from this time period. To ensure the safety of the building, it was deconstructed and then reconstructed in 1934 with modern building codes and prime security, including an extension to the underground tunnels which connect the palace to various important locations around the city.

Name of palace: Royal Citadel
Date of construction:
  • Construction Started: 10 December 1651
  • Construction finished: 1 April 1672
  • Destroyed during the Palmyro-Lardite War: 4 July 1944
  • Years of disrepair: 5 July 1944 - 1 July 1984 (served as an anti-monarchist, anti-capitalist museum during the Communist era)
  • Reconstruction started: 1 July 1984 (newly-established Royal Government ruled from the headquarters of the construction site's security detail)
  • Reconstruction finished: 1 July 1986
  • Opened to public: 1 July 2012 (during Victory Day Parade MMXII)
  • Latest renovation: 23 December 2016 (finished)
Location: Benevolencia, C.D.
Constructed for:
  • The first governor-general of the Palmyrian Dominion under Spanish rule, Francesco Gamboa y Abella (resided in the Royal Citadel from 1672 - his death; was the residence of successive governor generals during Spanish colonial era)
  • The then-incumbent Lakàn, Lakàn Alexander I (1 July 1986 - his stepping down from the throne)
Current owner: Lakàn Alexander II
Current state: Within the palace grounds are the relocated Assembly of Representatives and the Supreme Court. During the latest renovation, the palace had improvements to improve security, improve architectural design, and reduce power consumption while having the same accommodations (which concerted closely with architectural design improvements, making it a Crystal Palace-esque type of structure; structure was made so that sufficient amount of light would enter to cut lighting costs during the day). Because of the recent overhaul, the Royal Citadel (and the surrounding palace grounds) barely looks like the original palace.
Current use: First floor is a museum about the achievements of the Royal Commonwealth. Second floor consists of Cabinet offices and the Cabinet Assembly Chamber. Third floor is where the Palmyrian Royal Family lives.

Got questions about the Royal Palmyrian Commonwealth? Go ahead, ask the Lakán/Lakambini anything!
