New Britannia and the Civil War
New Britannia, which is now a protectorate of New Britannian Empire, was founded by King James Richard I. When the King was assassinated during the Civil war, foreign invaders from a now non-existant nation took control of New Britannian and it become a colony. King James' son, King Caleb I, under the guidance and encouragement of his Great Uncle, Duke James of Balmoral, raised an army against the invaders and defeated them. In 2006 he was coronated and founded the modern New Britannian Empire on the continent off the coast of New Britannia. Most loyal citizens moved to the new region, New Britannian Empire, directly after it's creation.
In the early days, New Britannian Empire had very little structure in the government. It was ruled by the King alone. Duke Matthew of Grand Leeds, who is considered the father of New Britannian politics, presented to the King the idea of creating a parliament and electing a Prime Minister. This parliament later developed from a unicameral parliament to a bicameral one with the House of Commons, which was elected, and the House of Lords, which was appointed. In 2007, both Houses of Parliament were appointed by the King. In the same year, a bill, suggested by Duke Matthew, was passed making the Prime Minister position partisan and the Conservative Party was Founded by Duke Matthew. The Labour Party would be founded by Duke Anthony of Ant Swain and later still the Royalist Party by Duke Benedict of Noble Britannian.Today New Britannian Empire is still an absolute monarchy with a powerful king as head of state and a prime minsiter as a figure head. In fact, New Britannian Empire is considered the most powerful monarchy in the Nationstates world.
New Britannian Empire once had two satelite regions known as New Britannian Protectorate and New Britannian Haven which have recently ceased to exist, but the empire is still strong, and is growing ever stronger.

Cransley later joined the empire as a duchy under Duke Benedict.
New Britannian Empire is an invader/defender region. Because it has an active founder, New Britannian Empire has only been invaded once when His Majesty, King Caleb I was visiting New Britannian Imperium and Hive tried to take revenge for foiling their invasion of GREATER ANTARCTICA, one of NBE's allies. Recently New Britannian Empire has declared war with Riordonia, a supposedly democratic region with a dictator. New Britannian Empire has benefited from the war, gaining Fondor and West Riordonia.
