The Kingdom of Kandarin, The Kingdom of Mishtalin, and The Kingdom of Asgarnia whilst expressing interest in The Fremennik areas, Morytania, and other areas around Runescape. The U R E is one of the few clans in Runescape with an adopted and followed constitution that dictates how leaders act. It is also the only known POE with a constitution. The U R E has seperate branches of leadership that balance out and all are headed by The Emperor. The Emperor has 2 years of leadership experience whilst each Duke has between 5 months to 2 years of experience leading. The current requirements to join are 80+ combat with a P2P membership.

Secretary GeneralEdit

This is the military leader of the clan. He/She is The Emperor's top advisor for military information and is part of the chamber whithin the clan serving as a province-neutral chamber member.


Creation of The United Runescape EmpireEdit

The United Runescape Empire has its roots set back to 2007 where The Illiof created and served as The Prophet of Truth of The Covenant. There he met many of The United Runescape Empire's future Dukes and The Secretary General. The Covenant was influential in many clans formations and demises (including The Heretic Covenant, which collapsed) the most hostile branchoff was The UNSC Marine Corps, who as they grew to over 90 members sought out a genocidal campaign against Covenant members. This led to the eventual alliance of The final Covenant (lead by Skeleton 355, Sesa Rolamee, and Darkness5308) and UNSC Defense force (Feanor 921 and Paradox 52) to conglomerate into The USSC Space Corps. During this transition of power, The Illiof who was freelancing at the time caught wind of the transition. The Illiof saw that the USSC Space Corps was "DOC" or "Dead on Creation" he then began working on the blueprints that eventually became The United Runescape Empire.

Main BasisEdit

The Illiof came up with 4 main basis for an active and growing clan, called Operation: Hillmaker

Effective Systems of Government: This means that the government must be active and divided to regional leaders lead by a national leader. Regional leaders are Dukes who command and work with the members inside their respective kingdom, awarding and punishing members inside their kingdom. The Emperor holds most Federal power constitutionally while being presided over by The Dukes and approved by The Chamber. The Dukes come in also as a basis of leading whilst The Emperor is off Runescape.

Effective Legislature: This goes down to The Chamber, they are the Judicial and Federal branches of state. Head of The Chamber is The Emperor, and the Dukes are chamber members. The Emperor has the final say on laws or anything else passed by The Chamber by Vetoing or Approving it. The Emperor has the automatic, non approved power to Overturn or Deem a law or policy innefective at any time he sees appropriate.

Effective Community Membership: This is goes down to activity and productivity of a member. All members begin at the bottom of the block and rise via points given by The Emperor or their regional Duke.

Effective Terms of Recruitment: This comes down to gaining members. The basis of The United Runescape Empire is to gain members and provide them with a conglomeration of oppurtunity in estabilished Academys and Forces along with activity in events.

Summit and FoundingEdit

In mid-January, The Illiof spoke to leaders of The USSC Space Corps, and explained his reaserch on the clan and announcing that it will not go anywhere without focus and with the leader of The UNSC Marine Corps continuing his campaign. He told them the ideas of Operation: Hillmaker and the leaders of The USSC agreed. Before the creation, The Illiof created a creation team of Skeleton 355, Feanor 921, Paradox 52, and Darkness 5308 to makes sure the four (origionally three) most crucial positions (Dukes) would not be empty upon its press onto The Runescape Forums. The Illiof spoke to UNSC Marine Corps leader Lancaster157 issuing a LockforLock treaty, stating that if any posting on eachothers threads would result in a lock for the person who broke the treaty. This along with keeping Event times and world private, it neutralized threats posed (if any) by them. On January 21st, The U R E was founded and put onto the forums.

Issues with Feanor 921Edit

In its first week, there were no forseeable issues except for Feanor 921 who was The Duke of Kharidia at the time. He insulted members of The Chamber and was stripped of his rank as Duke. He was then replaced by Padro 42 who was a former member of The Covenant. After this, he was accused of treason for telling top secret information to The UNSC Marine Corps. As more information came in, it was evident that there was no wrongdoing by him. Out of sympathy, he was given the rank of General Secretary. He still wanted to be a Duke and was impatient in waiting for a decision. He began to critisize The Emperor in which he let it slide. The Final straw for him was when The Illiof was offline, he tried to assume power as Emperor by posting his own rules and expecting people to abide by them. He was formally kicked on January 30th and Igothacked16 assumed his postion as General Secretary.

Current EventsEdit

The U R E has continued a large growth with active members. The Illiof connects the fast buildup and steady-going leadership adhered to the ideas of Operation: Hillmaker. On average days, two to three members apply each day. Half of these come from non-leader members using recruiting knowledge. The Illiof does member examinations daily and Member-sweeps every two weeks. Accordingly, about 90% of members sign in atleast once every 2 days. Events are every night and amount of events nightly are unlimited. 10% of members are non-member and half are attempting to get a Runescape membership as soon as possible. They had an "Open F2P Policy," but closed that February 4th.


First half of February 2009Edit

The United Runescape Empire has remained steady. A common amount of members to see doing an event is at 15 or more. They have so far passed 3 bills. Bill #1 closed the open F2P policy to P2P only with no effect on current F2P members. Bill#2 increased the recruitment requirements to join from 70+ to 80+ giving members whithin the clan 6 months to raise their combat to level 80. Bill#3 helped increase member productivity and creativity whilst doing events. Allowing a member to host an event for fun thus removing the former "all events off the bat" philosophy. Tension has increased with The Imperial Runescape Empire, a clan that has been harrassing The United Runescape Empire as of late.

Second Half of February 2009Edit

The United Runescape Empire was facing a possible triple war against three clans. F.I.R.E.B.I.R.D, The Assassins, and The Imperial Runescape Empire. F.I.R.E.B.I.R.D was a dead on creation clan whilst the crisis with The Assasins ceased on February 17th. The only threat remaining is The IRE. There has been a debate of "New Ideals" vs "The Old and Dying" ideals of Empire operations whithin Runescape Clans. Although The Imperial Runescape Empire calls for an "Absolute Monarchy," The United Runescape Empire is a "Consitutional Monarchy". So far The Imperial Chamber has rejected The Illiof's request of war against The IRE so basically this has remained a war of words between the two leaders due to the fact The Kaiser of The IRE has been Adamant in a war declaration.


Future HopesEdit

The Emperor hopes to crack down on Inactive and Unproductive members to help keep a steady community. With the techniques he is using, he hopes for 50- or more members by the end of the first quarter which ends on March 31st, and atleast 100 or more members by the end of the second quarter ending June 31st. He also has an end of summer goal of 150 members and an end of 2009 goal of 200 members.
