Imperium Africana (Amharic: የኢትዮጵያ ንጉሠ ሽንቅላ, Mängəstä Shnqla), or more commonly, Ethiopia (Amharic: ኢትዮጵያ?, ʾĪtyōṗṗyā), is a major global power located on the continents of Africa, Antillia, and Oceania. Established in 1792, the empire has endured more than four hundred years of history, and has grown to become one of the major superpowers of the modern day. The country has a population of about 417 million subjects as of 1930, and is one of the few remaining monarchies in which the monarch is still the supreme head of the government. Having faced down numerous invasions, betrayals, and attempted partitioning, Ethiopia has survived four centuries of warfare and come out of the other side stronger than before. Once one of the weakest nations in the world and landlocked, Ethiopia has since established one of the oldest colonial empires in the world.
The empire has a centuries-long alliance with the United Maharajya, which has been largely responsible for aiding Ethiopia grown into one of the most powerful nations in the world. With the aid of the Orissan-led Maharajya, Ethiopia developed its industrial base to European standards, and developed one of the most advanced militaries forces in history. With these, Ethiopia became one of the few nations in recent history to launch two successful invasions of Europe, and claim several lands for itself. However, a coalition of nations worked to together with the aid of Ethiopia's former ally Neu Berlin, now a pale shadow of its former self, to destroy the Ethiopian possessions overseas. Neu Berlin today is a dominion of the Imperium following the German-Ethiopian War from 1921 to 1926.
Since those turbulent days, Imperium Africana has re-emerged as a powerful industrial empire. Its history of defiance against the overwhelming forces arrayed against it have transformed the Ethiopian people into ever-wary subjects to the Crown, all suspicious of their foreign neighbors. Politically and culturally united, the Imperium seeks to endure well into the coming centuries, determined to break more ground and face the future head-on. With the destruction of the German nation as a credible force, and the Bavarians' rise to power, Ethiopia has few concerns as far as Europe is concerned. However, with the paranoid Chinese empire not too far from its shores, plans to maintain a steadfast force prepared for an uncertain future remains.
