The Ide Jiman Empire



The Ide Jiman Empire

Short Form:

Ide Jima


The origins of Ide Jiman culture can be traced to pre-1000 BCE. Whilst by no means isolated, there exists a strictly isolationist attitude within the Ide Jiman national psyche. Ide Jiman culture originated from a multitude of city states, based around the Darhan river in the Ide Jiman hinterland. Through a process of conquest and aggressive diplomacy spanning over 400 years, a united kingdom emerged by 300 CE. Thereafter, the imperial government gradually exercised absolute control over the lands within the current borders of the Ide Jiman Empire. Following an attempted  With the accession of various emperors, openheartedness towards the outside world fluctuated down the centuries. Ethnic groups inhabiting the fringes of the current Ide Jiman Empire were gradually subsumed within the growing nation-state.

During an era of increasing international trade, anti-imperial sentiment among the citizens of Ide Jima boiled over, resulting in one of the longest conflicts in Europan history. Following a bloody power struggle, communist revolutionaries assumed control of the entirety of the former Ide Jiman Empire. Commencing in the late 1980’s, economic stagnation, combined with an aggression amongst the general populace towards heavy handed government control over everyday life resulted in a second civil war. The outcome resulted in the heir apparent, Artakai I, returning from exile to assume control of the provisional government.

Government Summary:

Officially, from 1954 to 1992, Ide Jima was governed by a hardline communist government. Following economic breakdown and widespread famine large portions of the military, manned primarily by unwilling, disillusioned and impoverished conscripts, revolted against the communist leadership. The military revolt led to a short civil war, which within weeks led to the collapse of the Ide Jiman communist government. The after-effects of the conflict reverberate to the present day; the Government remains fiercely anti-communist, and the government exploits strong nationalist sentiment as a matter of course.

The Ide Jiman aristocracy consist of a number of Barons, many of whom are wider members of the Imperial Family, or individuals elevated due to services to the empire. In the latter example, it is not uncommon for these appointments to be granted posthumously to military figures, as a means of honoring and supporting their family members.

In the aftermath of the restoration, absolute power is exercised by the current head of state, Emperor Artakai I. The monarchy’s grasp on power is cemented by a strong relationship with the military. Imperial laws are rubber-stamped by a military council, the Central Directorate, consisting of high-ranking officers from the four military districts of the empire.

In recent years, the Government’s emphasis on nationalist policies has led to an increase in secessionist tendencies among areas of the empire. The southern of the nation, geographically isolated from the North by a large expanse of desert, has developed into a potential flashpoint.

Nation Summary:

Through the nature of the existing government and traditional cultural boundaries, the nation remains heavily regionalized. Ide Jima is dominated by powers based in the Northern and Central regions.

The north of the Country is traditionally more well developed. The temperate climate combined with strong infrastructure make this area the economic powerhouse of the nation. Rural areas are dominated by agricultural output, whilst the conurbations of Serekan and Xian form the major industrial centers of the nation. The national capital of Serekan, the largest city in Ide Jima, is generally considered to be a region in its own right.

The central regions of the nation consist largely of barren mountain wilderness, as well as the Darhan River basin in the West, which originally formed the cradle of the Ide Jiman nation. The mountainous regions of the nation are largely unpopulated, punctuated only by mining towns and military bases. The Darhan area in the far west consists of a small area of fertile land, centered around the city of Darhan itself, the regional capital, and an ancient city closely aligned to the power bases in the northern part of the nation.

The Southern part of the nation can be broadly delineated into two areas. The area south of the central ranges is occupied largely by a vast desert. Largely unoccupied save for a few pockets of civilization clustered around oases, and a handful of military testing ranges, the desert region remains one of the most sparsely inhabited on eurth. A small strip of fertile land along the southern coast is heavily populated. Several large port cities such as Dalshir and Kherbayan occupy the southern coast, which remains largely isolated from the Northern part of the Country, save for a handful of highways and railways connecting the port cities to the wealthier north. Crucially, the southern part of the nation has traditionally been more outward looking. This, combined with disgruntlement towards the Northern government (accused by many of usurping trade wealth from the southern ports) have led to an upsurge in anti-Serekan sentiment in recent years. Large parts of the southern coast are currently under martial law.

The far southwest is generally regarded separately, despite being geographically similar to the remainder of the South. The area is typically referred to by the name of the regional capital, Khamseen, and is centered around the eastern banks of the Darhan river delta. The fertile regions of the river itself are concerned primarily with agriculture, with a lesser emphasis on trade compared to other Southern cities, due to the relative distance of the city from international shipping lanes. Whilst the region is culturally, ethnically and ideologically homogenous with the power bases in the north of the Country, relatively high poverty in the region has exacted a heavy toll on pro-government sentiment in the area. Concerns relating to the restive nature of the region, combined with traditionally strong ties with Serekan have however resulted in the region being granted a unique honor within the military government. Aside from Serekan, Khamseen is the only city to be independently represented within the governing military council.

Other Major Cities:

Economic Summary:

The economic output of the Ide Jiman empire consists largely of raw materials, based primarily on mining, forestry and agricultural output. Civil war and unrest have hampered economic development throughout much of the past 30-40 years, as a result of which much of the civilian population is occupied in unskilled roles related to resource extraction.

In the wake of the collapse of the communist government in the early 1990’s significant advances occurred in economic development, particularly within the northern region of the nation. Previously centered on exploitation of primary resources, the economy has seen an upsurge in the growth of large private technological, engineering and other industrial corporations.

Economic advances since the collapse of the communist government have resulted in increase in the overall standard of living in Ide Jima.


Traditional Ide Jiman religion evolved from a range of animistic beliefs. By 250BCE, a syncretic system of belief of Than’Chai had emerged, placing emphasis on ancestor and nature worship. Philosophical developments throughout the following centuries resulted in an increasing emphasis being placed on self-betterment, with Ide Jiman religion closely resembling Tibetan Buddhism by 1900. Religion in Ide Jima was effectively wiped out by the communist government. Since the collapse of the regime, the Imperial Government has taken great efforts to promote Than’Chai. Consequently, the faith is closely linked with the Imperial Government, and honoring the state is considered by many to be part of an individual’s religious duty. Officially, Ide Jima is religiously homogenous, and outside religions are banned.


The Government is run by the military, as a result of which defense remains the top priority for government expenditure. Despite the downfall experienced by the previous governing regime, conscription is still largely applied, albeit with some caveats for the more restive regions in the southern part of the nation. The military government is characterized by the long-running squabbles between the Army and Navy, which each vie for favor with Emperor. The Air Force has traditionally occupied a middle-ground in such disputes and continues to benefit as such, being the most prestigious of the main service branches. Each of the military branches is subdivided into regional command areas, governed by officials reporting directly to the Emperor as part of the military council. The current inventory of the Ide Jiman Military can be broken down as follows:


Air Force:

Consisting of 816,000 personnel, the IJAF is broken down primarily into regional theatres, each consisting of several aerial divisions comprised of around 17,000 personnel, and fielding around 100-120 aircraft each. Each division is subdivided into several smaller squadrons, typically of 25-30 aircraft each. Recent years have seen a decrease in the number of aircraft fielded by the IJAF, with a greater emphasis being placed on employing smaller numbers of modern aircraft types. The following division types are currently employed by the Air Force:



The Ide Jiman army represents the largest of the military branches, containing 3,450,000 personnel. As with all branches of the military, the overall command structure is broken into regional commands, termed army fronts. The army includes 120 divisions, each containing approximately 20,000 personnel. Despite overall size, the army has struggled to effectively modernize, and consequently remains geared primarily towards territorial defense. Recent years have seen an effort to introduce a greater capacity for force projection in the military, with emphasis being placed on upgrades to airborne, mechanized and armored divisions.  


Containing approximately 2,100,00 personnel, the navy represents the second largest branch of the military in terms of manpower. The recent history of the navy has been characterized by bitter rivalries with other branches of the military, particularly the army. The bulk of the navy is organized into three fleet commands, Northern, Southern and Central, whilst a fourth, the Naval Defense Command, operates in the role of a Coast Guard operating smaller corvette and patrol vessels in riverine and littoral waters across the nation. The three main fleets have benefitted from recent military budgets, and operate a number of fleet carriers. The ideological emphasis of the navy rests on air power, as a result of which a number of shore based attack squadrons are operated by the navy, independently of the air force.  

Marine Corps:

The IJMC consists of three divisions, with a total manpower of 120,000. Each division is assigned to the northern, southern and central fleets. Along with the air force, the IJMC represents one of the most modernized elements of the military

Imperial Guard:

The Imperial Guard is divided into two divisional sized formations of around 17,000 soldiers each. The role of the Guard is twofold, the first division is assigned for protection of the imperial family, and acts as a military intelligence/police force to promote this aim. The second division is employed as an special forces formation, with elements being attached to army formations.

Strategic Forces:

The strategic forces represent a single divisional sized formation, responsible for the deployment of short to medium range ballistic missiles from mobile launchers.

I may be gravedigging but what the hell: great thread!


Ever thought about copy-pasting this to NSWiki?

Thanks, Orioni! I was considering doing that, in fact I was just getting to grips with the Wiki thing roundabout now.


Good to see you back on the forums.

The Imperial Ide Jiman Navy:


Personnel: 4,100,000

Pilots: 5,500

Aircrew: 16,500

Seamen: 4,080,000




Aircraft Carriers: 22

Type 14 Class CVN:12 (Serekan, Emperor Kizatame I, Marshal Xiao, Patriot, Byzantine Sea, Yalu, Tinian, Alliance, Ide Jima, Khamseen, Defender, Weihan)

Type 20 Class CVGN:4 (Laoshan, Darhan, Xian, Kaejau)

Type 21 Class CVL:5 (Jiangwei, Kokiro, Yuzuki, Tai'kan, Ruzuki)

Type 24 Class CVB:1 (Acheron)


Ide Jima maintains a powerful air arm within the navy. The aircraft carriers themselves are made to aid in the projection of military force over great distance, with Type 14 carriers providing up to date air support with unlimited range. Performing a more strategic role are the Type 20 carriers, which form part of the military's nuclear deterrent. These ships also serve as 'fleet wreckers', holding the ability to launch both devastating air and missile assault simultaneously. For operations closer to home and at shorter notice, Type 21 carriers project smaller firepower, and are tailored for special operations, defense and emergencies. The final type is the Type 24, the sole bomber carrier of the Ide Jiman navy. Fielding F-111 from it's massive twin hull based runway, this carrier moves in conjunction with regular CVNs to provide devastating air assault for landing operations.


Battleships: 7

Keyshan Class:3 (Thunder, Lightning, Blizzard)

Atlas Class:4 (Atlas, Promethius, Epimethius, Menoetius)


Some view battleships as being obsolete when it comes to modern naval strategy. The high command of the Ide Jiman navy has made sure that the role of the battleship remains central. The two classes have both differing roles. The Keyshan class of ship are used for coastal bombardment - in the event of a naval assault the massive 16in guns wielded by the ships are able to churn out much more firepower than the largest cruisers - at either naval or land targets. Keyshan ships are reliant upon destroyers and frigates for defense from the air and against submarines though, so normally only operate as part of a sizeable battlegroup. More independent are the 4 Atlas class, fast moving, lightly armoured assault ships used for attacking enemy commerce vessels. One of the most expensive classes of ship ever produced, the four vessels incorporate mainly missile armamend, and also numerous stealth features. These ships operate freely of fleets, carrying ample anti air defense as well as powerful radar in amongst their llarge missile arsenals. Every battleship carries at least 100 marines.


Cruisers: 39

Weizhau Class CG:15

Shenai Class CGN:8

Larzu Class CGH:10

Shirane I/II Class CGN:6 (I Class 4, II Class 2)


The standard guided missile cruiser of the navy is the Weizhau class, a type designed to protect larger vessels by providing high levels of anti submarine weaponry and detection. As well as this the ships carry long range missiles designed for surgical strikes against inland enemy targets. Almost identical to the Weizhau class are the Shenai vessels, however using nuclear propulsion. Similarly the nuclear powered Shirane I Class provide fleet defense, as well as being able to form part of the nuclear deterrent in times of emergency. Shirane Class II can be technically classed as Battlecruisers, capable of engaging enemy shipping and acting independently as commerce raiders. Shirane II Class are often found probing the Eastern approaches to the Byzantine sea. Larzu cruisers provide additional helicopter support to fleets and landing operations, as well as a basic level of defense.

All you have to do is click on it and it comes up big. I guess thats a step in the right direction...


And now for a rundown of the states:


1: Darhan

Capital: Darhan (on the southern foothills of the state)

Terrain: Mostly Rainforest, with mangrove swamps on the coast. In the south is part of the central Ide Jiman range.

Territory status: State

2nd Largest City: Regno


2: Weihan

Capital: Weihan

Terrain: Mostly lowlands, low lying and rich in agricultural land. Areas of rainforest litter the land near the coast, whilst inland the land rises slowly towards then central mountains.

Territory Status: State

2nd Largest City: Karang


3: Keyshan

Capital: Tianjin

Terrain: Most land slopes towards the central ranges, but in terms of climate the land is Rainforest, with large areas of coniferous forest on the lower mountain slopes.

Territory Status: State

2nd Largest City: Aktau


4: Khamseen

Capital: Khamseen

Terrain: The mountains to the north block winds carrying rainclouds south, leaving most land dry. Most of the Khamseen state is a desert, apart from the extreme west where some rains arrive from the north. This land is mediterranean in climatic terms.

Territory Status: State

2nd Largest City: Gauteng


5: Centre/Taishan

Capital: Taishan

Terrain: Mountainous, with land in the south consisting mainly of large areas of grassland, which change to desert in the summer, but in spring and winter are fed by mountain streams.

6: Centre/Tutong

Capital: Tutong

Terrain: This state is the most mountainous in Ide Jima, with the land descending steeply to the small coastal town of Tutong. The slopes are patched with coniferous forest, and small areas of rainforest exist on the coast, where the rainclouds get no further than the mountains, leading to massive amounts of yearly rainfall.

Territory Status: State

Second Largest City: Drakensburg


7: Morutau

Capital: Morutau

Terrain: High and rocky, but lack of vegetation due to exposure to winds from the sea. (Think Faroe islands in terms of landscape) The south though, like much of Ide Jima is rainforest.

My flag


(See avatar because I can't find it right now)



Red is a colour that has been associated with Ide Jima since early history, relating to the royal colour of the ancient imperial house of Jimatai. The 'sun' emblem is another ancient symbol, and the 12 points represent the number of Ide Jiman states immediately following the fall of communism.


The crescent moon, which in other flags may symbolise islam, symbolises the 'years of darkness' from 1956 - 2005. The sun rising before the moon symbolises a return to prosperity at the hands of democracy.

The Temple of Shi-Kan Riyu


Place Constructed: The northwestern Taishan ranges, near the border.


Existed: It is believed to have been built around 460 BC, and most of the structure remains standing until today.




1) The temple was built originally as a fortress against the marauding Ide Jiman natives, who had been forced from the region of Darhan by the encroaching Jimantai people.

2) By 200 AD, the region was largely deserted as a result of deforestation, and the fort fell into disrepair.

3) For 1100 years the fort stood as a hideout for thieves, until 1300 AD, when Christians from the west of Ide Jima took the fort over as a place of refuge, establishing it as a Monastery or 'temple' as they are known in some parts of the Ide Jiman church.

4) Until 1950, the building served it's purpose, until the communists abolished religion and destroyed part of the temple.

5) Reinstated as a Heritage site in 2003, now preserved.




This building symbolises the northern state of Darhan, and provides researchers with an insight into one of the most unknown patches of Ide Jiman history.

Damn, 18.4 million military personnel in the Army alone! That's by the 5% standards I guess, so you probably have a huge population. Your military is kick ass and big. Mine is kick ass and small. I have 8,700,000 total personnel. Now we all know that no military in RL has 18.4 million, or even 8 million like mine. So what do you think your more RL number would be just to get a better idea, like china? Mine would probably be around 300,000-350,000.

The vast majority of that number are the support/ logistics folks who are required to project a well equipped force of around two million. The ratio I used is around 7 support troops to every soldier in the front line. In RL, my military would be closest to China or India in terms of size.


This is deliberately toned down - if I was using the 5% rule I'd have 228 Million personnel in my armed forces wink.gif
