Ever since the Olde Kingdom of Vikings had joined the HPC, the Viking culture became unknown to the common penguin. Many Viking Penguins didn't feel as if they should be ruled by different cultures, so they invaded the Antarctic Peninsula and declared independance on February 25, 2010. They sided with Snowzerland in the Great Snowzerland War I, who helped keep the empire from falling. However, At the end of the war, Swiss Ninja's Forces had lost, and the King of the Grand Viking Empire resigned (King Yurgo Olave). Luckily, the USA decided to allow the empire to continue running, except that their conquered territory shrunk, and they had to pay loyalty to the USA. The citizens of the Empire didn't mind any of these things, though. The Empire had become a bright place with a bright future, dispite it's beginning and wars. It was going pretty steady when, all of a sudden, King Charles Olave confessed that he was King Carlos Goberna of Castilla in disguise, so the Viking Empire collapsed, and the mainland fell to the hands of Liguria while the others were ceded off to other territories again. Eventually, when Flywish siezed Liguria for his own, he decided to keep the area of Frostize for Liguria and donated the rest of the land to Castilla to deal with.
It finally occured in the GSWIV that Snowzerland got angry at the Empire for betraying them and invaded the land. Eventually, it formed into the Snowviet Union, then declared itself independant with Freezeland as Penguinia. Eventually, the GSWV reconquered Freezeland for keeps, and the Viking Empire was placed back as the main power again.
Viking Islands Annexation
When the Liberations of Frankterre and Alemania occured, the countries armies where weak on their own, and needed support of another larger country so that they wouldn't be recaptured by Snowzerland Again. Thus, they decided to annex into the Viking Empire for Safety. Magyaria did the same.
The King is the top of the Government, and slightly below him are his chief Advisors. The Empire also has a large parliament, with representatives (of mostly Lords, Mayors, Governors, Generals, and such) from all the provinces. The Parliament has about 1,000 penguins in it. It has two houses, The House of Sarajevo, and the House of Jorgen, having an equal amout of penguins for each House. Below the Parliament are the Governors of the Provinces, then the Mayors of the Towns and Cities, the Soldiers, and the rest of the people. The Parliament meets in the Judiciary Capital of Santa Juanita. The regular Capital is Frostize, which is where the King resides.
