2,304 CE - Present
Entente of Ventemir
The State of Tenshi is a sovereign state located in the Via Sagittaria Galaxy in large part in and around the Kanadett star cluster in addition to a substantial portion of the Ventemir Galaxy. Its holdings in the Via Sagittaria Galaxy are mostly located within the Anthrov Arm while its holdings in the Ventemir Galaxy are almost entirely on the very edge of the galaxy. The only nation it directly borders is its former colony within Ventemir, the Entente of Ventemir.
The State of Tenshi is a constitutional aristocracy. Rather than being ruled by a single monarch, it is ruled by a noble organization, known as the Tenshin Ministry, in which the duties traditionally given to a monarch are carried out by a vast number of individuals. The current head of the Tenshin Ministry is Jun Takanashi IV and he has been in this position for over five hundred years. Its capital, Yakusoku, is one of the most populated human worlds in the galaxy at over one quadrillion inhabitants. Other major planets include Hikari and Mirai.
The nation originally formed in 2,304 CE in response to the anarchy plaguing the galaxy after the Split of the Yohjan Confederacy. Before then, the area of Kanadett was controlled by a large number of rivalling fiefs each vying for supremacy. Four monarchs, Senku Takanashi I, Erich Serebryakov, Rui Sakagami, and Luka Claes IV, signed a treaty to unite their countries under one state, Tenshi. Tenshi began expansion from there, either subsuming or eliminating the rival fiefs in the star cluster. By the early 5,000's CE, they had total hegemony over the star cluster as well as the region directly around it. Ten thousand years later, the nation gained enough strength to begin an invasion of the Ventemir Galaxy, fully subjugating it within five thousand years. At one point in 59,809 CE, Tenshi had unified with Rune-Err, technically giving Tenshi joint control over the Via Lacrimosa Galaxy as well. This did not last for long, however, and the two nations soon broke apart. It maintained control over most of Ventemir until after the War of the Ancients, when the Sakagami House broke away from Tenshi, taking a large portion Ventemir galaxy with them. Today, Tenshi only has control over a relatively small number of stars within the galaxy.
The State of Tenshi is a member state in the Confederacy of Borealis and the Intergalactic Council. It has strong alliances with other monarchies such as the Empire of Mankind and the Fusion of Crowns, both of which have marital alliances securing a good relationship. The nation has a GDP of over 4 nonillion C-Units which, while not very large compared to the GDP's of other nations, places its GDP per capita as number one in the Via Sagittaria Galaxy. Tenshi has one of the most powerful militaries within the galaxy despite its small size. Its use of artifacts from the Triumvirate Civilization as well as other polities such as Sedrua gives it a huge technological advantage compared to other nations.

The region of space once controlled by the State of Tenshi was first colonized by the Triumvirate Civilization in the early 20,000's BCE due to its proximity to what was once a Sedruan military base. They commandeered the valuable craft in the region, but maintained the base as a storage facility for valuable weapons. As the Triumvirate gained power, it was begin storing more and more valuable weapons there. These weapons, most notably the ERS Moon Signal, the TRS Last Waltz, and the TRS Night Running. The Triumvirate maintained this base until it suffered a major collapse in 15,089 BCE, causing many of the species under its control to break away to form their own civilziaitons.
One such of these civilizations was composed of Humans. This nation, the Yohjan Confederacy quickly became the uncontested master of the Via Sagittaria galaxy, with no other civilization based in the galaxy coming close to their military power. However, this did not mean that nations outside of Via Sagittaria were unable to stand up to it. Tensions between it and these outside nations mounted until a full-scale war, known as the War of the Final Transition broke out. The war proved to be too strenuous for the Yohjan Confederacy and it soon collapsed in on itself. Not because its military was unable to handle the conflict, but because its populous was unable to.
Chaos gripped the galaxy as its largest nation fell into pieces. While external nations did their best to maintain order and occupy territory, they failed. Across the galaxy, millions of warlords sought dominance. This included within Kanadett, the most remote of human colonies at the time. While being far from others was originally a great advantage, it thoroughly isolated its inhabitants from the rest of the galaxy. They too were divided into warring factions. Four of these factions would unite to form the modern state of Tenshi in 2,304 CE. Each of the noble houses once ruling the factions had a different role to play in the newly created nation. The Takanashis would assume the role of "Head," organizing the nation at the highest level. The Serebryakovs would manage internal affairs such as the economy. The Claes' oversaw the "Tenshin Expeditionary Force," which was the military acting outside of Tenshin territory. Lastly, the Sakagamis oversaw the absorption of newly conquered territory into Tenshi.
