On the edge of the new Cimbrian Alliance resided one last Province of the Roman Empire in the North of Europe. It was known as Campus Asius, meaning the plains of Asia. It was primarily a large harvesting area for industrial uses such as metals and other compounds but chiefly in grains such as wheat. The goddess Ceres, the goddess of harvest, was the center of the cult of worship among the Polytheistic people, almost all of whom were farmers. The capital of the Campus Asius, and sight of the largest of its military installations, was in Minisum (Minsk) and this was from where many of the goods of the Asian Plains went through to reach Europe. After the start of the Cimbrian Alliance the Governor General of the Campus Asius moved the head of his government back so that the goods could move through the Pontus Euxenos (Black Sea) and the Pontus Hyrcania (Caspian Sea). Europeans would receive their grains from a different direction but the Generals could not risk losing the capital of his Province and dismantling the largest source of grains to the Empire.

The Several different tribal groups of the Campus Asius were believed to be, at least by the Cimbrians, easy people to get to rally behind a rebellion against their leaders. The Cimbrians found them much more difficult however. Small uprisings started around the same time as the major ones in the other Provinces but they gained little to no momentum and many times were crushed by the people in those areas. The economy of this Province was one of the steadiest in the Empire. The growth of the population of the Emprie, from Parthia to the British Isles, to North Africa provided such a flow of income that the Campians were some of the most homogenously well-off people in the Empire. With the lack of an aristocracy that usually came in with a Provincial Republic, with a Senate and Political class of people, the fruits of the labor of the Campians could remain theirs while a strong merchant line could reach as far as Nigeria, Hibernia, and Arachosia creating a firm base of commerce. Campus Asius was not much for advances in culture such as art but people who visited the Province calle it an example of how the Roman Empire ought to work.
