The Empire of Rolance (Rō-lance), Commonly known as Rolance, is the prevalent empire of the Cyranian Continent, located in centermost of the continent, dividing the west from the east; whilst bordering the of The Kingdom of Hyland to the north. Apart from this, Rolance's central location in Cyrus makes itself an undisputed hub for trade domestic and foreign in the region.
The Empire establishes itself as a Crowned Republic, yet functionally an absolute monarchy; which is also the oldest standing monarchy in the world. The reigning monarch is Emperor Agnus II, yet is incapacitated; which by the law of the empire, transfers the Imperial Power to the Crowned heir who reigns in the Emperor's absence as Prince-Regent Logan.
Rolance consist of 9 Provinces: Merdia, Persius, Maeve, Pleucur, Artima, Calenti, Leonus, Atalus, Vestius. Each province reigns autonomously and is presided over by a Premier which translates into the rank of Duke/Duchess. However, abide by the Imperial Law, which is legislated by the Imperial Senate, which each province appoints 3 officiants to serve apart in.
The name 'Rolance' is a portmanteau, with 'Ro' meaning 'Low', and 'Lance' meaning 'Point'. Thus, the combining of the two roots in translation, forms the word, Rolance (Low Point). The oddness of the portmanteau it may be. The word Rolance, in practice, sounds much befitting without the breaking of its roots. Commonly, Rolance denotes the Empire, whilst the term 'Rolancent' refers to its inhabitants.
