Space Stage[edit]



We, the Bard Empire are followers of the Philosophy of Chance! We don't march around aimlessly like an army of ants, nor do we all wear the same designer pants. Instead, we laugh and we sing and we all try to dance, while being very careful to not trample our plants.
Soon we will tell you what awaits you if you join us...


We, the Diplomat Empire follow the Philosophy of Order. Our councils keep the Harmony and update all the forms and Galactic Calendars. It's the way of measurable progress. Without Order, the garbage keeps piling up.
Speaking of which, we have Static Cling Super-Technology. We use this to halt the turrets of disorderly cities anywhere, so we can negotiate them into an alliance... And make sure the forms get filed on time, in triplicate."


We, the (Ecologist) Empire, believe in the Stones of Life. We believe that you are us and we are you and that together we are one! Man, we are one with plants and animals, stars in the heavens, clouds in the atmosphere! We even have a safari vacuum that we use to abduct plants and animals so that they can join us in the circle of life."


We the (knight) empire know the philosophy of force. It is strength and it is victory.
First, we were the strongest among our neighbors, then we were the strongest in all our lands. Then, we found new neighbors and new lands. We went there in great numbers, and we fought and we were the strongest there too. And now we are the strongest of all empires... all empires but one.
If anyone dares challenge the (knight) empire, then we will fight and we will win.


We the Scientist Empire follow the Books of Science."
It is our duty to study, dissect and examine the universe around us. We seek knowledge and it is our fervent belief that every question can be answered with research, systematic categorization, dedication and logic. Knowledge is our fuel and there is no higher calling than learning. Those who try to prevent us from our scholarship do so at their own peril.


We, the Shaman Empire are Philosophers of Harmony. Those who Harmonize with us have found inner stillness where it begins: At home.
In addition to discovering our inner beauty, practicing Harmony grants the universal power of the Return Ticket. From all points in the Universe, those in Harmony can instantly teleport back home."
Wise traveler. Learn all that you can, for there any many different true answers for life's questions. The beings for the Shaman Empire follow the Philosophy of Harmony. As such, we know that every species must find its own truth. For the followers of Harmony, our touchstone is home. With our gift, we are able to teleport to our homeworld to reconnect with our terraself.


As members of the Trader Empire, we strongly believe in the Philosophy of Prosperity. It teaches us to mind our own business, and to mind it very well. There's no other Empire in the Universe that can compete with our levels of operational efficiency! Although I must say, you look like a clever species, and I'll bet you're doing a heck of a job running your Empire, aren't you? Don't be modest, of course, you are, or you wouldn't be here talking to me! Only the smartest species in the Universe know to seek out the Trader Empire for all their financial advisory needs. And only the smartest species in the Universe sign up for our training courses on the Philosophy of Prosperity. We also offer group discounts if you know any other Empires who want to learn the secrets of the Tablet of Prosperity. Sorry, no refunds


The Warrior Empire is strong and powerful. The Philosophy of Force is the only choice. All other philosophies are weak.
Those that are strong enough to follow the Philosophy of Force will have the added power to call in a fighting force to attack their enemies.


We the Zealot Empire follow the one, true Philosophy of Faith! Woe be to those who do not share our beliefs in the teachings of Spode, for they are wrong in the face of all that is right. If you were to repent now and admit your wrongness, we the Zealot Empire may take mercy upon you and help you to see the way of the Rightness!
