Huge mountains and green valleys. The Imperius climate is perfect for growing fruit.

-Tribe description

The Imperius tribe is the second of the 12 regular tribes in Polytopia and one of the four free tribes, the others being Xin-xi, Bardur, and Oumaji. Imperius starts with the Organization technology.

Imperius is a relatively strong tribe, as it can upgrade its capital on turn 0. However, it is not as strong as Bardur or Kickoo since its resources are more diverse and require more technologies to fully exploit.

Resources

Imperius has default spawn rates for all resources. Therefore, those spawn rates may also be called "Imperius spawn rates."

Tribe Celebrations

  • 2019 Imperius Tribe Day poster

    2019 Tribe Day: Always ready for battle, all Imperius wear their helmets at all times. It is a momentous occasion when Imperius youth receive their first helmet, which is held in high esteem.
  • 2020 Imperius Tribe Moon poster

    2020 Tribe Moon: The highly efficient society of the Imperius has inspired them to build grand libraries, write breathtaking stage plays, erect mighty monuments, mix delicious drinks, and maintain a multitude of beautiful gardens! You'll never find a more organized or more fun place on the Square!
  • 2021 Tribe Moon: The Square's first musical superstars were the Imperius Philharmonic Orchestra, who quickly attracted Imperius citizens from all over the Empire! Remember, any rumors that the Imperius government is using the shows to hypnotize their citizens into obedience are nonsense.

  • The Mado horses of the Imperius empire are strong and versatile. Every family worthy of some respect have at least two of them. They're always black and shiny, and ready to carry their masters on new adventures.[1]
  • Imperius Citizens love the taste of a perfectly tempered wine made of Lumaepeles, in fact that's the only beverage they ever drink. Hot in the winter, iced in the summer, and sometimes mixed with Limi flower seeds (for that extra kick...).[2]
