The English Imperial Republic (also referred to as the English Republic, the E.I.R, and the E.R) is an Imperial Republic comprised of colonies in Africa, Asia, North America and Parts of South America.
In 1605, the reign of King James I came to an end with the Second Glorious Revolution and the destruction of the English throne. The working class soon seized the moment to change the government for the people of England and beyond. In the Leeds Conference, it was decided that the new government would be headed by a President serving as the head of state while a Prime Minister.
Though the Republic was less oppressive, the English Republic continued its aggressive expansion into the early 20th century.
