A map of the Anisoran Empire

The Anisoran Empire (Anisoran: Impero Anisorano; Pastanan: Imperium Anisoranum), commonly known as Anisora, is a constitutional federal monarchy situated in central-western Anaria bordering the Medio Sea. The Empire is separated by the Sea of Cestarena and the Medio Sea into two parts, the Eastern and Western regions. The majority of Anisoran land and population is situated in the West in Anaria Minor, where the North Bhazen Mountains form the western border of the Empire. The remainder of Anisoran territory is made up of hundreds of Median islands as well as the entire Cadrai Peninsula, commonly known as Pastana, which extends out from Northern Anaria Major and borders Ardennes. The Empire covers an area of 776,597 km² (299,846 sq mi) and has a highly diverse climate, due to the Empire's geographic spread across the Medio and Anaria Minor. With over 46 million inhabitants it is currently the third most populous nation in Anaria.

According to the constitution, Anisora is a federal constitutional monarchy with a parliamentary system of government. The current monarch is Emperor Marius III, who has reigned since 7553. The Empire is made up of 41 Constituent States, most of which are ruled by royal families. These include four Grand Principalities, eight Principalities, two Arch-duchies, seventeen Duchies, four Dependent Islands, and six Free Cities. The largest of which is the Grand Principality of Casella and has remained the most politically dominant state since the Empire's foundation. The capital of Anisora and its largest city is Pena, which is also the capital of Casella. Other major cities include Valance, Arrento, Tenalevan, Pilano, Valamaggiore, Marocida and Pandagna.

In 7367 Anisora became a nation state when Marius Decus won the Anisoran Civil War and was crowned Emperor of the Anisorans, uniting the Dual Kingdom of Casella and Pastana with most of the Anisoran speaking lands in Tova and the Confederation of Vetriano under a single constitution. The establishment of the Empire was the fulfilment of long-held desires to see an Anisoran state realised with the rise of Anisoran nationalism during the 73rd century. During the Marian Era under the successive rule of Marius I and Marius II, Anisoran power increased in Anaria Minor and the Medio Sea, which brought Anisora into conflict with other great powers including Auresia, Amberia, Anat Tahan and Becuvitatia. Although much of the territory gained in Anaria-Minor was ultimately lost after the Pan-Anarian War, Anisora remains a great Anarian power today, and has recently recovered from many post-war economic hardships.

Symbol of the DAL

The DAL, an acronym for Dashink’ Aztagrman Lusav'ereni (Դաշինք Ազատագրման Լուսևաներենի), Alliance for Lusavanic Liberation, is a Lusavanic political, separatist and terrorist organisation operating in the Anisoran Empire. The organisation's primary goals are ending Anisoran rule over Lusavan and the creation of an Izhaic Pan-Lusavist state in Anaria Minor. An organisation driven by political, ethnic, and religious factors, the DAL has a range of objectives, with their ideology encompassing pan-Lusavism, Lusavanic nationalism, Izhaic proselytism, anti-Orkanism, and anti-Anisoranism.

The group was founded in 7509 during the Pan-Anarian War by Mihran Sahakyan with suspected Tahani backing. The organisation fought guerrilla-style campaigns behind the Aschgæt Alliance frontline that sought to undermine the Anisoran war effort and aid Anisora's principle enemy Anat Tahan, which as the spiritual leader of the Izhaic sects was seen by the DAL as a liberator of Orkanan-occupied Lusavan.

Today the organisation is active across the Anisoran Empire, with their headquarters somewhere in the Grand Principality of Lusava and Vascano, likely in Tenalevan, and is led by Arman Tavarosyan. The group has been responsible for a number of terror attacks and militant campaigns across Anaria Minor since their inception, and are active to this day. Recent actions undertaken by the DAL include: the 7554 bombing of the Teatro Principessa in Pena which killed over 30 Anisorans, including a number of politicians; the 7577 sabotage of a Moreva Petroleum Corporation oilfield, resulting in major damage and numerous deaths; and the assassination of Antonio Valorsano, the Vascanese Deputy Minister-President of the Grand Principality of Lusava and Vascano in 7579.

Marius I, Emperor of the Anisorans

Marius I (Anisoran: Tito Mario Deco; Pastanan: Titus Marius Decus; 15 February 7326 - 19 April 7384) was an Anisoran military and political leader who rose to prominence and power during the Anisoran Civil War and reigned as King of the Dual Kingdom of Casella and Pastana before crowning himself Marius I, Emperor of the newly established Anisoran Empire in 7367. He is considered to be the father of the modern Anisoran state and has been celebrated as the first person to fully unite the Anisoran speaking peoples and lands across the Medio. He led Anisora through extensive territorial expansions in Anaria Minor and waged a number of successful wars against Becuvitatia and Lusavan, as well as establishing Anisora as a colonial power in Altaia, D'Runia and the Shangti.

He has remained one of the most celebrated leaders in Anisoran history, being arguably the single most important patron of culture in Western Anarian history, with many of his extensive social, economic and military reforms remaining influential across Anisora and beyond today. He does, however, remain a controversial figure, with many criticising his reliance on military power, his divisive purges of the 'old aristocracy' and his autocratic powers and disempowerment of the Senate.

Piazza della Valentina, Viceno

Viceno (Anisoran: Vicenze; Pastanan: Vicennua) is the capital city of the Anisoran constituent state of the Duchy of Viceno, in the Vattoro region of western Anisora. The city is situated on the Lio River and is approximately 50km to the west of the city of Fontanigorna. The population of Viceno is 89,000 (as of 7575).

Viceno's historic power and influence under the Foligna family during the late seventh millennium made it arguably the main artistic, literary and cultural hub of Anisora and was very influential in Northern Anaria as a whole, and was one of the wealthiest cities of the period. The rule of Niccolò the Great, Prince of Viceno between 6761 and 6804 marked the widely acknowledged Golden Age of the city's influence and cultural prestige. The city is famous for producing some of the most renowned names in art, literature, philosophy and architecture of the seventh millennium, including: M. Francesco del Fora, P. Cosimo Serbiani, L. Lucrezia da Sangatta, L. Bartolommeo da Barborelli and T. Adriana Montefori. The city is noted for its art and cultural museums, including the Rilazzo Gallery, as well as important examples of architecture, such as Es. Valentina Hall, and other cultural and historical monuments, such as the Piazza della Valentina, which is the largest square in Anisora.
