The alliance is the product of a merger between Imperium and Order of the Rose. Before the merger, Imperium was an autocratic alliance led by the autocrat TokeMaster (now Chaos). Order of the Rose was a presidential democracy, and was led by their president Carter0912.
The governments of the Imperium and the Order of the Rose had an IRC talk in early September 2012 about a potential merger that would take them together to enormous power. The terms were met by each party, and the merger took place on 14 September, forming a powerful alliance called the Empire Of The Rose. Other parties of Planet Anson approved the move by the two alliances positively, with individuals praising and uttering "o/ Empire of the Rose" and "All Hail Empire of the Rose". An initial government was set up to run the alliance in the beginning days, and Carter0912 became the first president of Rose.
Rise to PowerEdit
Soon after the merger, the alliance ranked #1 in-game, due to the addition of two large alliances. The Empire of the Rose had its first treaty, a protectorate, with the Helghast Empire, signed on 30 September 2012. It was soon followed by another treaty with the Helghans, a MDoAP. However, both treaties didn't last long, and the long friendship between Helghans and Rose deteriorated. The two alliances will be involved in a war later. Rose later made The New Beginning Accord with The Flock, an alliance which remained a long ally of Rose. The alliance was also involved in a treaty with the Galts Gulch.
Sometime on 2nd December 2012, a friendly chat between leaders of Zombieland and a few members of Rose turned aggressive when a member of Rose reacted to a personal attack by Zombies, which they considered as an insult, and asked for an apology in return for peace. Rose defended their member, and soon war broke out between the two alliances the next day, joined by the Confederate States, Team Aqua and Galts Gulch. The war continued till 12th December, when white peace was declared, days before the reset.
While in peacetime, Rose started rebuilding, and went on to have a treaty with the Galts Gulch, and a protectorate with the Circle of Furs. After tensions with the Helghast Empire increased in early March, Rose saw itself at war once again with Helghans on 10 March 2013. Peace was declared on 15 March when terms were met by both parties.
War visited Rose once again 29th July 2013 in the shape of a new alliance called Reavers . This war is currently being contested and will be updated here upon it's conclusion.
Rose has zero treaties.
In total, the Empire of the Rose has been into three wars.
Empire Of The Rose follows democratic process. The Emperor is in charge of the alliance. Elections take place every three months.
There are four ministries whose ministers are appointed by the Emperor.

- The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, which is responsible for maintaining foreign relations and diplomatic connections with other alliances. The Minister of Foreign Affairs is expected to take a leading role in negotiations with other alliances.
