The Empire of Haiti is an independent state under a classist regime. It's currently under a unified classist government under the emperor Joseph I de Saint-Domingue.


In 1798, François Toussaint-Louverture, an important Haitian nobleman and leader of the Classist Party, among his two lieutenants, Jean-Jacques Dessalines and Henri Christophe, took the city of Port-au-Prince with weapons and devices brought from Nouvelle-Bretagne, a former Russian colony that was conquered just year before by France-Sweden during the Last Great Northern War. The Russian communities of the island saw the revolution of the classists as an opportunity to regain their sovereignty against a each time more tyrannical French government.

With the civil disarray in the United Principalities, the struggle for power between the Emperor August I Harold and his son Robert, and the tensions that France was holding with Sweden because of its attempts to emancipate without french recognition, it was not hard to the Haitians to become de facto independent. Just a few loyalist strongholds remained in Nouvelle-France, where the people were more French ethnically than the rest of the former french colonies in America.

In 1800 Haiti was recognised independent by France. Though in Nouvelle-France some groups were still fighting to restore the old regime, the rest was peaceful. The expansion began, as also the domain of the local waters and the diplomacy with the fellow American independent countries.

Haiti became an Empire with a classist constitution. The monarchy was elective; each member of the party had some hierarchy. The nobility had assigned votes according to their rank. Each duc (duke) were a possible choice for Emperor, and each of them had three votes, each comte (count) had two votes, and each common that participates in the Election Comitte had one vote. Louverture became quickly the emperor Francis I of Haiti.

The same year of its independence, Újfundlandi (Newfoundland), a former Hungarian colony, now and independent republic (?) offered its alliance to Haiti. Haiti accepted and immediately offered an alliance to Ricasolia (Cuba), a former Neapolitan colony, now a classist republic ruled by the old members of the terrorist organization I Liberatore. It agreed.

The very same year some troops were sent to support Madoc, the King of Cymbria and leader of the Itsaygahian Classist Party, the first party of this ideal, against the racialist faction that were struggling the Third Civil War. Madoc was killed that year. In 1802 the soldier of itsaygahan infantry, Raballahi Owanafa, crushed the racialists and proclaimed a Federative Classist Republic in Itsaygahi, that accepted an alliance with Haiti and created the Triple Classists Caribbean Alliance (Itsaygahi-Ricasolia-Haiti), today the Great Classist Caribbean Alliance, after have accepted Isloque (Bahamas), a former venetian colony (before the split of the Most Sere Republic of Venice into several pieces, including independent colonies) as a member in 1803.

In 1803 Alexandre Pétion, and important Haitian duc, among Aleandro, an exiled prince of the United Principalities, crushed the last remnants of rebellion in Novuelle-France. A trade pact was formed the same year with Nippon.

In 1804 Eugéne de Beauharnais, a French-Vietnamese nobleman became de facto leader of several nationalist French (or new French) and Russian (or new Russians) in Nouvelle-France and Nouvelle-Bretagne respectively. The both provinces grew territorially, culturally and military under his rule.

In 1806 Dessalines became Captain Regent of the Empire during the lasts year of Francis I's rule. Russia accepted a trade alliance with him, and another trade pact with Persia was accepted one year later.

In 1808 Ehkanankhne von Hitzen went up to power in the new revolutionary government of Itsaygahi after overthrow Owanafa. Dessalines had no power to rescind recognition of the regime, and Louverture was too old to refuse so. But just the same year Dessalines became emperor after the death of Francis I. The emperor John James I signed a treaty that reopened the trade relationships with France, and also started a campaign to conquest the Commonwealth of Malouinas, the tyranicall state formed by the followers of Maximilien Robespierre, the ex-Prime Minister of France who was exiled by the Captain Regent Murat and the rightful Prime Minister Charles-Maurice de Talleyrand after overthrow his support Emperor Robert V and proclaim the Russian emperor Alexander as Emperor of France.

At 1811 the Itsaygahian government was reformed to be like the Haitian one. A classist empire ruled by Truklag, an ex infantry colonel who overthrew Von Hitzen.

Eugène de Beauharnais and Alexandre Pétion secured the northern most Patagonie by this time. A trade pact with Vietnam was signed in 1812. Eugène became new Lord Protector of the Commonwealth of Malouiansa after Robespierre was defeated by a quick revolution in Port Saint Rober, in 1814.

That year Haiti joined the war of Russia-France against the Great Turkish Alliance formed by Turan and the Incan-Colombian Republic, but immediately changed its side to support Turan.

In 1815, with the war still on, Dessalines was overthrown by Chrsitophe and Pétion, who declared themselves Co-emperors as Henry I and Alexander I. Henri became King of the Kingdom of Haiti, in the north, that included Nouvelle-Frane and Nouvelle-Bretagne, and Alexandre became President of the Republic of Haiti, in the south, including Tere-de-Feu and Patagonie.

In 1816 an alliance between Itsaygahi (still under Truklag) and Malouinas (under Beauharnais, who had taken Patagonie and Terre-de-Feu) overthrown Henri and besieged Alexandre, who was already planning abolish the Empire. They were supported by Édouard Belcher, a military officer that declared himself Viceroy of Nouvelle-France, as an independent state, though still classist, as Malouinas.

In 1817 Truklag became Imperial Regent of Haiti and just took to him a few years to force Pétion to surrender, but an ex-noble of Henri, Philippe Guerrier, Duc de L'Avancé, and the republican Jean-Pierre Boyer made a coup d0état and declared themselves co-emperors as Philip I and John II Peter I. They were defeated after a one year struggle led by some Joseph de Saint-Domignue (OTL JoséNúñez de Cáceres Albor), who became Emperor as Joseph I.

In 1821, the Vietnamese colony in Haiti was sold to Haiti.
