The Scholarship of England is a powerful college that rules over most of England. They came into power after the fall of Europe against the violent raids of the Svalbardic Empire, the United Kingdom of Great Britain being the first to fall. Oxford just barely survived with the help of the most powerful remaining European power, the Vatican. After the Svalbardics left, the Vatican granted Oxford increasing power and land until they came to power over what was left of England. Now, the Scholarship of England is ruled by the Dean of England and his council.
