Bless the Realm and Death Spare the Kaiser is the current national anthem of Shireroth, having replaced the The Benacian Beast (anthem from 1661 to 1671). It is an amended version of Shireroth's ancient national anthem, Land of the Nifty.
Bless the Realm and Death spare the Kaiser;
Long may her* strength increase.
May she* slay all demons of Balgurd,
Keeping the land at peace.
Shireroth, the land of the people,
Leading from ways of yore.
Shireroth, the land of the noble,
May Death spare thee evermore!
The pronouns of the Kaiser change depending on the gender of the Kaiser/Kaiseress.
