The Aldorian High Kingdom is one of the biggest nations of the Aldorians. Its culture and origins are derived from the Temerians on the continent of Temer, in their native homeworld of Birnis. Its a feudal nation, that serves a monarch and an elite of nobles. Although it works as an empire, is its known as a kingdom. "Aldoris Eros Merkas" is the official name of the country in Teremir language. This nation is led by a wealthy nobility, all descent from noble temerian families that trace back to Temer, a powerful caste of Priests and a Monarch or King, that has absolutive power, subjected to a Parliament that represents the interest of the Common people. Apart from that, Priest and Nobles have their own respective councils that rule their affairs.
The capital is located on Planet Selen, the first founded colony of the Temerian Kingdom, a Nation in Birnis, so it was colonized by Aldorian settlers of Temerian origin. Thus, the main culture and Language as well as customs, are derived from this part of Birnis. The Parlament is located in Kasna and the Nobiliarian council in Tyran. The Priesthood council is in Planet Haradaris.
The nations is located in the Herschel Space, and is in good terms with the Lewis Nations, although relations are rather cold, specially between those democratic Nations that are against slavery. Relations with the Empire of Mankind are relatively good, to the point of international cooperation between them. The Union, is always trying the Aldorian High Kingdom to liberate its Human slaves and relationships between them are tense.
Origins and History
The origins and founding of the nation goes back to the early space exploration days of the Aldorians. The Temerian or Aldorians from Temer, started their own space program, alongside other nations of Birnis. Thus many world were colonized and subsequently ruled by The Temerian Kingdom of Birnis, their homeland.
Temer has always been ruled by a King, and the urge for power encourage the King to start the space run against other nations. Temerians then colonized planet Selen and Kasna. This two worlds were temerian colonies ruled by the King of Temer. But with time, planes wanted to gain independence and be ruled by themselves and not by a distant king. This situation worshen when King Ungador died, having two twin sons from the same litter. Neither the mother not the any assisting the delivery was alived, so it was impossible to determine which one was born first.
This led to the War of the Twin Brothers or the War of the Twins: Alkaris and Maron.
Alkaris lost the wars on Temer and took refuge in Selen and Kasna, consolodating its power in the space colonies, while Maron had control over Temer and crowned himself King in Temer's Capital. Alkaris, who was very popular in the colonies, crowned himself king in the Great Hall of the Throne in Selen, which back then, was a small summer palace. Conflict stagnate, and soon it became clear that the two would split. Alkaris became the king in the colonies, sovereign of a new nation named The Aldorian High Kingdom, while Maron would remain King of Temer and the Temerian Kingdom in Birnis.
Slavery is and has always been permited and encourage in this nation. Specially Alien slavery.
