The Union of Apollonia is a proposed successor of the Jingdaoese Empire, whose ruling class found themselves confronted with major financial problems and a loss of spiritual unity with the death of the Sheng Emperor and the subsequent news that the new Heavenly Light would leave the political stage behind. The treaty between the Union and Shireroth would - if accepted - lead to the end of the Sxiro-Jingdaoese Confrontation. If it comes to fruition it would be the sole country on Micras to share a head of state with another country.

If established, it would include most of the original Kildarian possessions when it first seceded from the Imperial Republic in 1617.5555 AN.ASC, with exception of Hawshire-Dura, which remained loyal. However, the period of Jingdaoese rule saw the Eastern Empire undertake a programme of rampant imperialist expansion: the Northern Counties (home to the largest concentration of Batavians) were annexed by Jingdao and remained part of the Union.

The Union would be nominally independent of Shireroth, and the power of the Emperor (who would simultaneously be Kaiser of Shireroth) would be subject to limitations imposed by both the Seanad and Imperial Yuan.


As of 1645 AN the proposal remains merely one of a range of options currently under negotiation.
