The Grand Archduchy of the United Realms of the Hamptonian Empire or Hamptonshire, is a highly modernized, developed and democratic nation located mostly in Haven. Hamptonshire is made up of more than twenty major islands, thousands of smaller islands and ten imperial Dominions. Hamptonshire Proper, the core of the Hamptonian Empire, is more than four thousand miles distant from the nearest foreign nation.

Hamptonians are a socially liberal/libertarian people with a strong sense of national pride and public reserve. While Hamptonian dress and social customs may seem Victorian to some, that should not be taken to mean that Hamptonians are cold or conservative. Civil liberties, both of citizens and vistors, are highly respected and Hamptonians individually are quite concerned about humanitarianism.

Foreign relations and policy remain a sensitive, and at times dangerous, issue within the Empire. Centuries of physical isolation have left Hamptonians with an almost inbred tendancy toward xenophobia. While some right-wing politicians and organizations have harnessed this embarrassing remnant of eras long passed, generally Hamptonshire is quite involved in the international arena. The especially close relationship with Pacitalia and Oceania has helped to further ease isolationist attitudes.


Following the disasterous period known as The Regency, the Constitutional Act (2006) established a modified form of government for Hamptonshire and its territories.
