Location of Yuropu
The Federal Empire of Europa, natively known as Yuropu Apapoba, is a nation in the west of Europa. It rose through the outstanding administrative and organisational skills of the Yuropu people. The Europa Empire was the most politically important state in the region from the early 4th Century to the late 9th Century, holding power not only over most of the other kingdoms in Yuropuland, but also over nearby nations.
Native language: Yuropu (Europa), and Apapoba from apapo (federation) and oba (empire).
Capital is Centridge City.
The Drift Valley is considered to be the birthplace of Humanity.
The Emperor often demanded tribute in slaves. The tributary chiefs sometimes made war on other peoples to capture slaves for this purpose. Yuropu was known to punish disobedience by the wholesale slaughter of the erring community.
The key to Yuropu politics is a strong military and centralized government. The Yuropu Empire developed a highly sophisticated political structure to govern its subnational states. The influence of an aggressive Yuropu culture is exemplified in the standards placed on the Emperor and the roles of his council. While the Emperor is the supreme authority, he is not without checks on his power.
The population is concentrated in metropolitan Centridge City. With imperial expansion, Yuropu is divided into regions to better manage its vast holdings within and outside of Yuropuland. It is divided into four states defined by relation to the core of the empire. These states are Centride City, southern Yuropuland, the Drift Valley and Awonabule.
- Centridge City
Centridge City is the hub of the empire, divided into six provinces, with three on the west side of the Irin River (IJzer) and three to the river's east. Each province is supervised by a governor appointed directly by the Emperor of Yuropu.
The second state of the empire is composed of the towns south of Centridge City. Its inhabitants speak a different dialect from that of the capital. These originally tributary provinces are led by their own rulers, called Arabinrin, who is confirmed by the Emperor of Yuropu.
- Drift Valley
The empire's third state is the Drift Valley southeast of Yuropuland. This area is inhabited by the Eeyan (Aalst) and Awonkeferi (Gent) who guarantee trade with Memopotamia. The Eeyan and Awonkeferi tributaries are allowed to rule their own provinces.
Awonabule is the fourth state of the empire. It is the furthest from the capital and most resistant to centralisation. Awonabule is kept in line with threats of evening curfews. This territory extends along the Gàn River (Schelde) in the east into the highland territories. Like all states, it is allowed a fair degree of autonomy as long as taxes are paid, the imperial orders are strictly followed, and access to local markets is guaranteed.
