I saw a quote by GOPZACK and had to do it.Oerwinde 09:28, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

Its a possibility I suppose. I doubt its going to be canonised. But good on you for trying! Bob 10:13, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

I don't expect it to. I mean its plausible, its not like its in downtown new york, but its mostly based on a quote where GOPZACK said he would consider anything except something like "the Imperial Empire of New York City." So I tried doing exactly that.Oerwinde 10:22, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

You, we should see more microstates like this, particuarly in areas like Alaska and Texas, which were absorbed in proper nation states as time went by. This state would have to be very far away from NYC. The city probably took at least 6 100kt MIRVs. --HAD 11:46, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

Well it has be to far from the epicenter of any blast, but I don't envision it being founded right away. More like 1989 or so, enough time for the fallout to settle and any outlying radiation to die down.Oerwinde 16:55, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

To hell with what I said I love this article! --GOPZACK 16:58, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

When did Return of the Jedi come out on VHS? Mitro 16:58, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

1986, it hit theatres in may 1983.Oerwinde 17:14, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

A very original idea, Oerwinde. Great job!BrianD 17:03, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

Sorry guys, but Return of the Jedi was released on VHS in 1986. So unless they know how to convert theatrical films to VHS tapes, there is only the first two films on VHS.

This is what I was going for when I created Empire State: A dictatorship lead by a somewhat mentally disturbed leader. How about the Imperials go on a "grand campaign of expansion" when they only expand to include another couple of nearby apartment buildings.

Yankovic270 20:23, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

This is really like Star Wars, don't you Oer? ;) Arstarpool 20:25, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, not as big a fan as some people I know, but I'm a pretty big fan. Been looking for a way to do something like this since the beginning.Oerwinde 00:07, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

I would think that Doomsday would have two types of people. The people who go insane trying to cope, and the people who can cope well enough to suceed in the post-Doomsday world.This Emperor guy would probabbly fal between these two categories. Deapite his flimsy grasp on reality, he is still quite a capable leader. This is a realistic way of vsualizing how a "normal" person could cope with something like Doomsday.

Yankovic270 20:36, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

That depend on the definition of "normal"... :) Remember: It's a trap!HAD 20:39, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

hahaha This article is amazing! The situation reminds of the real case of Emperor Norton of the United States. Red VS Blue 20:43, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

I thought of Norton as well. This guy seems to have the same sort of 'insanity that keeps him sane' thing going on.Tessitore 21:34, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

Exactly! It makes me a little surprised that this country here only has 17 inhabitants. Even Norton, in a completely normal/non-apocalyptic society had over 30,000 people who were willing to go to his funeral, and he managed to live for free, eating at the finest restaurants. A very capable guy who's a little off his rocker could probably get a much higher following than just 17 people. Red VS Blue 21:57, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

This is mostly due to the lack of people in the area. The outskirts of New York aren't exactly prime living conditions.Oerwinde 22:09, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

This is both hilarious, and sad. I'm certain that if their was some Apocalypse, that some insane men would do exactly this. And, believe it or not, people will follow him. Tbguy1992 21:11, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

Apocalypse or not, people folow guys like this.who know this article might (i said might!) work here. who knows.Wingman1 22:30, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

Why not have them take over a movie theater, with all three Star Wars movies inside? that way the y could get around the whole "Return of the Jedi not on VHS" problem. they could call it the "Imperial Archives", or something of that nature. Destroyanator 23:58, September 4, 2010 (UTC)

Again I am seeing oxymorons in government names, you don't to state its an empire twice once is enough! Riley.Konner 14:52 September 8 2010 (UTC) that's not an oxymoron at all. I think the name shows the underlying insanity of its leader pretty well. It works. Red VS Blue 02:35, September 9, 2010 (UTC)

And the word you are looking for is Redundant, not Oxymoron. Oxymorons use opposites, such as dark light, microsoft works, or the Best of Tim Meadows. Imperial Empire is redundant, as it states the same thing twice. If it were the Democratic Dictatorship of New York, or if it used a more accurate description: the Imperial Commune of New York, those would be oxymorons.Oerwinde 06:29, September 9, 2010 (UTC)

Its unique I like 1983DD and Star Wars thanks Oerwinde --Owen1983 23:31, September 12, 2010 (UTC)

Coruscant was not created until episode 1, so it could not be the capital, maybe Bespin, Yavin 4, Tatooine, Endor, Dagobah, Alderaan, or Hoth, VENEZUELA 01:48, September 13, 2010 (UTC)

The Imperial March is not named in the movies, nor are credits, nor Galactic Basic Standard. Plus its canon all of New York City proper is underwater or completely obliterated. The rest of the island belongs to Outer Lands. Why not revive Empire State and place it there? Arstarpool 01:58, September 13, 2010 (UTC)

How would all of New York City be under water? And its not located on Manhatten Island, more like the outskirts of the Bronx around Yonkers or so.Oerwinde 02:09, September 13, 2010 (UTC)

Arstar is incorrect I have a vinyl record from 1979 that lists the "Imperial March" as one of the tracks. I can recall credits mentioned a few times in the movie. Plus comic books may have made mention of them. --GOPZACK 02:17, September 13, 2010 (UTC)

And if this guy is a big enough fanboy to lead a Star Wars-themed dictorship (no matter how small), he must own a copy of it. User:Yankovic270

Credits weren't mentioned. Believe me I saw all three original movies last weekend and no matter how small. I believe the first mention is when Qui-Gon is talking with Watto inside the Driod shop thing about the Hyperdrive Generator. And the comics really didn't kick off until sometime after the original Star Wars trio. Galactic Basic Standard I have not seen at all within the series except for mentions in Wookiepeida. Arstarpool 03:05, September 13, 2010 (UTC)

Galactic Basic(Standard?) and Galactic Standard Credits were both mentioned in the novel Han Solo's Revenge published in 1979(I'm not that much of a geek, I looked it up on Wookieepedia)Oerwinde 04:08, September 13, 2010 (UTC)

Large Population

Perhaps over time they would find more surviors, and become a bit larger commune to mabey a few hundread, because after 30 years the guys would be getting older and less able to function

Alexanders 01:58, June 9, 2011 (UTC)

Not likely. Have a look at the New York City article, Alex, as to why. These guys are the only survivors left for a fair distance. Lordganon 04:32, June 9, 2011 (UTC)

This is the best 1983DD article in my opinion. It was genius, Oer, although based on the idiocy of Emperor Church. Maybe you could have a picture of Palpatine and caption it as Emperor James or something. New York+Star Wars is the best. Great job, Oer! FLAG OF ROME Syngraféas Enallaktikí̱ Istoría, Dic mihi lingua Anglorum. 05:22, February 19, 2012 (UTC)

God, I'm LMFAO!! I could not stop the Star Wars theme tune go over and over in my head!! Well done, although I might be a bit late to say this all!! :D 1 Imperium Guy 22:54, March 20, 2012 (UTC)

Capital City

I revisited this after the article thanks to the "Star Trek" related article just put up as a proposal. It was and is a delightful piece of humor in the midst of a timeline that of late has been being taken far too seriously by some. In looking up the "capital city," I found that the name chosen was coined in 1991 in a novel based on the movies. As clever as the name is, to be accurate the survivors would have gone with something from the original triology.

Other than that, this "classic" remains superb. SouthWriter 01:57, March 26, 2012 (UTC)

From what I understand, before it was named, it was referred to as the "Imperial Center." Maybe that as a new name? Lordganon 02:11, March 26, 2012 (UTC)

I have to correct you all. The capital of the Republic was Coruscant, although under Imperial rule, it was renamed Imperial Center. Coruscant was the name given to Imperial Center by Timothy Zahn in his book Heir to the Empire. If there are any Star Wars problems, just ask me. IMPERIAL NY-SPQR 1Regen Flag Syngraféas Enallaktikí̱ Istoría, Dic mihi lingua Anglorum. 02:20, March 26, 2012 (UTC)

However, on Doomsday, the books were not written, so it would be referred to as Imperial Center, unless Church gave it a name. IMPERIAL NY-SPQR 1Regen Flag Syngraféas Enallaktikí̱ Istoría, Dic mihi lingua Anglorum. 02:21, March 26, 2012 (UTC)

Now Oer chose the destroyed Alderaan. IMPERIAL NY-SPQR 1Regen Flag Syngraféas Enallaktikí̱ Istoría, Dic mihi lingua Anglorum. 02:31, March 26, 2012 (UTC)
