The Asendavian Empire is named after its location in relation to the now non-existent Gliat Shea. In Asendavian, aset translates as great, inu translates as east, and klori translates as land. When combined, Asetinuklori translates as Great Eastern Land. Asetinuklori is then transliterated from the Asendavian script into the Codexian script as Asendavia.

The adjective used for physical or abstract things and citizens of Asendavia is Asendavian. In Asendavian, the proper term to refer to a citizen of Asendavia is Asetinuklorun.


The Emperor of Asendavia is the head of state, head of government and commander-in-chief of the armed forces. When the Emperor dies, his eldest son, the crown prince, will become the next Emperor of Asendavia. If the Emperor has no sons, than the title will go to the next eldest brother, or his next eldest brothers eldest son. If the Emperor has no sons or brothers, than it will go to his uncle, or the uncle’s eldest son if they are dead or incapable. Failing all of that, it will go to the closest male relative that is of the House of Harstad.

The executive branch is formed by the Emperor, his ministers, and the Syndic of the Imperial Diet. Each minister is appointed by the Emperor, and he can dismiss and appoint new ministers whenever he pleases.

The law making body of Asendavia is known as the Imperial Diet, which is unicameral. The Imperial Diet’s representative to the Crown is known as the Syndic, who is appointed directly by the Emperor from the members of the Imperial Diet. Its presiding officer is known officially as the Speaker of the Imperial Diet, who is elected by their fellow MDs. There are currently 495 seats in the Imperial Diet. 217 of the seats are reserved for nobles, whom the Emperor can appoint and dismiss at any time he pleases. Also, 178 of the seats are reserved for members of the clergy in Asendavia, each member first has to be approved by the Emperor. 94 of the 178 clergy seats are reserved for Ademarite clergy, who are appointed by the High Patriarch of the Church of Ademar. 53 of the 178 clergy seats are reserved for Celanite clergy, who are appointed by the Archbishop of the Church of Cel. The remaining 31 clergy seats are reserved for the other various religions in Asendavia that are related to Ademarism and Celanism. Finally, the remaining 100 seats in the Imperial Diet are filled by normal citizens who have been elected to fill those seats. While the Imperial Diet can propose laws to the Emperor, he can veto them without consequence, and the Imperial Diet has to abide by his decision, unless they wish to try and propose the law again.

Political parties are allowed in the Imperial Diet, save for the members of the clergy, as they are forbidden by law from joining any parties. Some of the largest parties include the Asendavian Nationalist Union, The Ademarite-Celanite Coalition, Citizen’s Union, and the Centrist Alliance. Other parties in the Magisterium include the Syndicalist Confederation, the Alliance of Social Democrats, Framover, The People’s Movement, and the Humanist Party.

The High Court is the highest court in a hierarchy of courts that form the judicial branch. The 11 members of the High Court are appointed by the Emperor.
