"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.


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

    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!

The Battle Of Polytopia Imperius Theme

  • The Imperius are inspired by Greco-Roman culture. Their name appears to reference "Imperium" (Latin for 'empire'), and they have Greek-style helmets.
  • The name of the Imperius tribe is similar to the word "imperious," which means "assuming power without justification."
  • In the ambience playing throughout Imperius lands, grasshoppers stridulating, insects buzzing, and someone striking metal are heard.
  • Since Polaris does not have its own terrain (outside its territory), games with only Polaris (either mirror matches or through the Mixed Tribes Easter Egg) take place on Imperius land.
