"The attempt on my life has left me scarred and deformed. But I assure you - my resolve has never been stronger. In order to ensure our security and continuing stability, the Confederacy shall be reorganized into the First Holy Roman Empire - for a safe and securer society."
The Holy Roman Empire is an economic and military powerhouse based in MC Empires. Led by the stalwart Emperor Waglington, the Empire was forged from the ashes of the former Confederacy of the Rhine (Rhinebund.) Serving as advisor is the mysterious Josef Furnace, always in the shadows and speaking with the Emperor.
Despite his authority, Waglington is hardly seen among the Empire's capitol, Rome, or anywhere for that matter. Many suspect he is part of a larger plot with his "advisor," Furnace.
