Government and politicsEdit
Rulers of the Empire
“The Empress Regnant is trained since birth to always put the needs of her people before her own.” – Marrika Nerys.
An Empress Regnant or Regnant Empress is a female monarch who reigns in her own right over an empire. The Empress Regnants was formed after the Great Sith War, after the first Empress Regnant killed her father and made the Faberian Empire into a matriarchy hereditary government. The Empress Regnant rule had last since far longer than anyone had expected them to. The Empress Regnant of the Faberian Empire is always taught to put the needs of her people before her own. Empress Regnants are always a stern yet compassionate woman and ruler, though she does keep whatever personality that she had before she became ruler. The title of Empress Regnant was passed down from mother to daughter, in order to make sure that it was kept within the bloodline of the first Empress Regnant. Vernius is the actual surname of the Royal Family and it is rarely used outside the sector, instead they use the surname of whoever their father was.
The Empress Regnant is always a compassionate ruler, always considering other people before herself, and she stood firm in what she believed in. She was also a persuasive and extremely empathetic speaker. She is regal and austere; she is also calm, cool, and collected. Though the Empress Regnant do keep whatever personality that she had before she became ruler but she only shows it when she is with her most trusted companions or with her husband (Emperor Consorts). Marrika Nerys is the only Empress Regnant that would show her true personality whenever she is greatly annoyed or angered by something and later Kestra Hett, the Empress Regnant during the time of the New Republic, shows her true personality when angered or annoyed as well.
Zyn Conor was the first Empress Regnant during the Great Sith War and Katra Vernius is the current Empress Regnant during the Second Faberian Civil War.
Here is a list of some well known Empress Regnants:
Zyn Conor (3,996 BBY-?)
Kiara Sorche (3,976 BBY-?)
Marrika Nerys (3,681 BBY-?)
Katianna Harkonnen (1,010 BBY- ?)
Keshara Niska (60 BBY-22 BBY)
T'lana Sheridan (22 BBY–19 BBY)
Kestra Hett- (2 BBY- ?)
Katra Vernius- (? BBY- )
The Faberian Empire had a very complex and diverse economy. Following the Great Sith Wars, the Faberian Empire started a process of stabilization and expansion of the economy.
Society and cultureEdit
The culture of the Faberian Empire was a mix of many beliefs of the planets that were under the Faberian Empire. The Faberian people are well-known than some of the other races in the Faberian Empire because they leave the sector to form trade routes with other planets in the Unknown Regions
There are many religions in the Faberian Empire, though those religions were only found on the planets that were in the Faberian Empire, like for example tha Faberian religion was found only on Faber, though Saber and Taber believe in the same goddess as Faber but they call her by different names.
“The Faberian Military: well-organized and deadly.”
Because of its centuries-long history the Faberian Empire’s Military had evolved into a fully integrated and effect combat force. It was after the first Regnant Empress had taken the throne that things changed. Suddenly, the creation of a reliable and unified Military became a top priority for the Faberian Empire. This led to the formation of a cohesive, efficient, and professional Faberian navy and army.
As with any military organization, the Faberian armed forces rely on a strictly regimented chain of command to ensure that units are organized and authority is clear. Ultimately, all military forces under the command of the Regnant Empress in day-to-day strategic decision-making. These decisions are almost always made with the recommendations and input of the Regnant Empress, the highest ranking military official in the Faberian Empire. Once a plan is made, it is the Regnant Empress’s responsibility to see that it is implemented. Orders are passed to the top generals of the army and the admirals of the navy, who then use the various forces under their command to carry out those orders as best they can…though it’s better if they carried out the orders 100% since the navy has suck a vast territory to protect and patrol, so one’s best will not be tolerated.
It is mandatory that service members of the Faberian armed forces show respect for their superiors whenever addressing them, always calling them by rank or the honorific “ma’am.” The policy of using “ma’am” is because every superior officer is a woman, given the fact that Faber is a woman governed planet, though during and after Marrika’s rule, men have been allowed into the army and navy. The main functions of the Faberian Navy were to keep outsiders from entering the Faberian Sector and to defend the Faberian Sector in times of war. Any unauthorized persons who attempted to enter the Faberian Sector without permission were dealt with in a swift and brutal manner. Other functions of the Navy were as escorts of the royal family when they left Faber.Maintaining peace and security over a vast territory requires constant vigilance from a staggering number of warships and support craft. In outsider conversation, this vast group of vessels is known collectively as the Faberian fleet. In reality, it is composed of hundreds of fleets, flotillas, and starfighter squadrons serving in different area and carrying out a wide variety of missions.
The Faberian navy generally organizes these forces by location and subdivides them by ship type, though the current number of warships in service is strictly classified. There were also ground-based military units, such as members of the Royal Guard. Members of the royal guard wore black, and were usually handpicked for their posts. It was considered a great honor to serve the Royal Family.
"The Empire has only one overall goal: stability and unity."
The Faberian Empire's territory at its peak consisted of some one and a half million member worlds, stretching from the borders of the Faberian Sector.
The capital world of the Faberian Empire is Faber.
