Welcome to the Explorien Empire Office of Expansion!
In the year 4601, the city-states of Morritt and Tronne were united by a royal marriage. The sailors, explorers, and conquerors of the era, who set sail to chart the New World, were referred to as Exploriens. Thus the expanding Morrittan colonies came to be known as the Explorien Empire, and eventually that name was applied casually to the homeland as well.
In the nearly four-thousand years since then, the Explorien Empire has remained at the forefront of global politics.
