Kampf Empire Overview (WIP)

Founding

The mainland of Kampf Empire consist of seven states and several overseas territories. The states are made out of territory that were fromer Bradenburg colonies in the Pacific. The prison colony of Kampf united and conquered the other colonies to form the country. The country began to be formed in 1873 after Otto von Bismarck was exiled by the Prussian King to the prison colony of Kampf. After several years, in 1891, a rough but deadly Kampf Empire was forged. In 1923, the Wilhelm family was exiled to the very same land they once exiled Otto von Bismarck. After barely surviving the colonization attempts by the United German Federation, the United States of America, the Spanish Empire, and the Japanese Empire, Kampf Empire was declared a fully sovereign and independent nation in 1957. After years of trade and abuse, Kampf Empire has finally become a Pacific power.

Today, the states of Kampf Empire are:

Politics

Each state is allowed to send 5 represenatives to the Lower House of the Kampf Empirean parliament, and 2 represenatives to the Higher House of the Kampf Empirean parliament. Every 6 years, elections are held in the country in order to elect new representatives. The Iron Chancellor is elected and serves until they are 85 years old, or die.

Religion

Týrism

Official Symbol

Basis of Belief

Under the watchful eyes of the Ancient God Týr, Kampf Empire is watched over and protected. In order to ensure the protection of Týr, we Kampf Empireans must live a life of lawfulness, and only conquer those who are deserving. The Church of Týr calls for no centralized worship, but for prayers and offerings to be made daily. Those who live according to these rules and/or those who die in battle, shall be granted an eternal position in the glorious legion of Týr, where they shall bring peace to the realms, for all of eternity. Those who fail to meet the requirements shall be damned to spend eternity in the realm of Hel, where their souls shall be forced to never find peace in the never-ending cold.

The War on the East
In response to the Sanada Wars of Conquest, Iron Chancellor Eric Gliznic Sr. gave a series of speeches, with this final one being televised across TEP.

Among the paranoia and fear spreading throughout the minds of citizens in the free nations of The East Pacific, Eric Gliznic Sr., the Iron Chancellor of Kampf Empire and it's territories, has prepared a speech to be televised across TEP.

* The camera activates, showing The Iron Chancellor in his office in the Citadel of Steel. Flanked by Iron Guards, Mr. Gliznic is seen with a pair of reading glasses. The 61 year old man sits in a leather chair, but is noticeably energized. This speech is a follow up to one he gave to the evacuating civilians of Kampf Empire. *

"Turning once again, and this time more generally, to the question of invasion, I would observe that there has never been a period in all these long decades of which we boast when an absolute guarantee against invasion, still less against serious raids, could have been given to our people. In the days of Usualstan, of which I was speaking just now, the same storm which would have hidden his transports across the Gobi might have buried the defending troops. There was always the chance, and it is that chance which has excited and befooled the imaginations of many Continental tyrants. Many are the tales that are told. We are assured that novel methods will be adopted, and when we see the originality of malice, the ingenuity of aggression, which our enemy displays, we may certainly prepare ourselves for every kind of novel stratagem and every kind of brutal and treacherous manœuvre. I think that no idea is so outlandish that it should not be considered and viewed with a searching, but at the same time, I hope, with a steady eye. We must never forget the solid assurances of sea power and those which belong to air power if it can be locally exercised.

I have, myself, full confidence that if all do their duty, if nothing is neglected, and if the best arrangements are made, as they are being made, we shall prove ourselves once more able to defend our peninsular home, to ride out the storm of war, and to outlive the menace of tyranny, if necessary for years, if necessary alone. At any rate, that is what we are going to try to do. That is the resolve of His Majesty's Government – every man of them. That is the will of Congress and the nation. The Kampf Empire and the Shavaran Republic, linked together in their cause and in their need, will defend to the death their native soil, aiding each other like good comrades to the utmost of their strength."

* At this point in the speech, Gliznic has stood straight up, knocking over his chair, no longer reading from the paper, and waving a single finger in the air for added emphasis. *

"Even though large tracts of the East and many old and famous States have fallen or may fall into the grip of the Clan and all the odious apparatus of Sanada rule, we shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in Shavara, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our land, whatever the cost may be! We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender, and if, which I do not for a moment believe, this Empire or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our territories beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the Kampf Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in Týr's good time, the nations of the future, with all their power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old."

* As the speech ends, one Iron Guard picks up the chair, in which Gliznic sits once more. Meanwhile, the other terminates the video feed. *
