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.

Monte Poravetta

The North Bhazen Mountains, also known as the Lesser Bhazens or the Garda Mountains, are a mountain range in Anaria Minor spanning roughly 800km (497 miles), making them the Xth longest mountain range in Anaria.

The North Bhazen Mountains, as the name implies, is a junior branch of the much larger Greater Bhazen Mountains to the south, which is the largest mountain range in Anarian Minor. The North Bhazens straddle the north of the subcontinent, forming the western border of the Anisoran Empire. The Anisoran states of the Grand Principality of Casella, Principality of Sogliano, Duchy of Montemara, and the Duchy of Montevalle are located along the mountain range. The range's highest mountain, Monte Poravetta, is located in Montevalle, and stands at 4,264m (13,989 ft). The largest settlement in the North Bhazens is the city of Datalano, the capital of Sogliano.

The Lesser Bhazens are known for their natural beauty, alpine forests, and rich wildlife. Today the mountain range remains very popular with mountaineers and is known for training many famous Anarian mountaineers. The mountain range is considered the spiritual home of the Anisoran Società degli Montanari (Society of Mountaineers).

Featured biography
Prince Aurelio, Duke of Marra

Prince Aurelio, 4th Duke of Marra (12 August 7371 - 12 January 7444) was an Anisoran political and military leader of the 75th century, who served as Prime Minister of the Anisoran Empire between 7424 and 7435, as well as First Lord High Admiral of the Anisoran Imperial Navy. The third son of Marius I, first Emperor of the Anisorans, and his third wife Erelia of Amberia and Eilän, Prince Aurelio was a senior member of the Anisoran imperial family and House of Decus, becoming Duke of Marra in 7384 after the death of his father, at the age of 13.

Prince Aurelio was groomed from a young age to be a naval commander and sailor, joining the Anisoran Imperial Navy at the age of 14. He loved the naval life and progressed as much through merit as his imperial privilege. He served under Vice-Admiral Marino at the Battle of Pamdo Bay during the Auresio-Anisoran War and was mentioned in dispatches for his actions aboard IAN Gran Principo. He eventually rose to the rank of Rear-Admiral before taking the position of First Lord High Admiral, the head of the Marina Imperiale, a position he retained for over twenty years.

In 7424 Prince Aurelio was appointed Prime Minister by his newly crowned niece, Empress Victoria I, daughter of the Prince's elder brother Marius II. He took office at a time of increased tension between the Anisoran Empire and Amberia, and within months of his appointment, the War of the Becuvitatian Succession had broken out, and would rage for the next five years. His handling of post-war agitation such as the Fontanigorna Massacre and the implementation of the repressive 'Exemplar Donato Laws' has been criticised and arguably defined his post-war premiership.

Piazza Parrona in central Pena

Pena is the capital and most populous city of the Anisoran Empire, as well as the Grand Principality of Casella. Pena is located in the north-eastern region of Alzeno in Casella, and is situated on the Loverno river, which flows into Prieste Bay. The river separates the city into two regions, the north and the south, with the majority of urban development and population in the north. With over 1.2 million inhabitants within the city limits, Pena is the largest city in Anisora as well as the xth largest city in Anaria. Pena is capital of both the constituent state of the Grand Principality of Casella and the Anisoran Empire. As such the city is the seat of the three chambers of the Anisoran parliament and the emperor's official residence, Colombera Palace.

Much of the city's layout and architectural adornment was built in the mid to late 74th century under the first emperor of the Anisorans, Marius I, and his chief architect G. Guiliano Acquavena. As the capital of the newly established Anisoran Empire, Marius spent staggering sums of money embellishing the city, and directly contributed to the iconic 'Marian style', also known as the 'Acquavena style', becoming the dominant architectural style of the city, which in turn has been greatly imitated throughout Anaria and beyond. The grand boulevards, uniform architectural style, extensive squares and gardens, all formed part of Marius' vision for the city and remain the defining features of the city today.
