Oranje, also known as the Thema Oranjēsiōn, was an administrative division of the Free and Associative Kingdom of Constancia.


A resolution advising the Basileus to establish the Theme of Oranje was introduced in the 8th Synklētos on 4.I.1651, and duly adopted by a near-unanimous bipartisan vote of 58-0. Shortly thereafter, on 18.I.1651, Letters Patent [2] were issued by the Basileus creating and establishing the Theme of Oranje, located on Kendall Island of Apollonia.

A Bill to provide for the regulations on the government and administration of Oranje was introduced in the 8th Synklētos on 16.I.1651 [3], adopted by a vote of 44-14 on 16.III.1651, and granted Vasilikí Singatáthesi, or Royal Assent, on 9.VII.1651 by Basileusa and Autokráteira Cleo.

A few months later, on 8.X.1651, Basileusa Cleo, in her capacity as Autokráteira, issued Letters Patent [4] appointing her Kanikleios, Jaime Augustin Joaquin Primo de Aguilar as Strategos of Oranje.

The Thema Oranjēsiōn was located in what was popularly known as the Kendall Isle, or Jaris, northwest of the Euran continent.

A flotilla comprising the Icebox and 3 Northman Class Corvettes of the Royal Constancian Navy arrived shortly. Formal possession of the territory [5] took place at high noon of 5.XIV.1652.

Settlement and Development


21.XIV.1665 marked the date of Operation Franciscanian Exit, the complete evacuation of the Thema Oranjēsiōn.

Notably, the last official evacuated was Viljo Kaljurand, Chief Executive of the Atacama Corporation, and later Imperial Senator.

The Thema Oranjēsiōn continued as a legal entity, receiving revenue and taxes until Phoinikaios 13, 1704 (13.I.1704), the day before the accession of the Basileus Giakoumis, at which time it was dissolved by Autokratorial Decree, and all its remaining assets and funds were remitted to the Imperial Constancian Government.



The Thema Oranjēsiōn is located in southeastern Apollonia. To its north and east are The High Realm of Stormark. To its west is Krasnarus. To its south is the former Alexandrian territory of Leifgrad, now part of Krasnarus.

Populated Areas

Major settlements include Atacama to the south, Gravenbosch to the north, and the capital Petropolis (formerly Hatrecht) to the east. Myvar to the northwest has become a refugee encampment of some 20,000 refugees fleeing the War of Lost Brothers, reside ewhile an approximate 30,000 reside elsewhere in the Thema, all granted residency out of humanitarian reasons.


Anticans, Tokians, Alexandrians, Novatainians, Melangians, Kildarians, Stormarkians and even the odd Nelagan. Constancians, too.



In accordance with The Regulation of the Theme of Oranje Act 1651[6], An Act to provide for the regulations on the government and administration of Oranje, the Thema Oranjēsiōn is governed by The Local Authority of Oranje, which is the administrative body led by the Strategos of Oranje, currently Jaime Augustin Joaquin Primo de Aguilar.

The Local Authority is responsible for: Issuing residence permits; Issuing land permits; Issuing work permits; Collecting local taxes; Budgeting Oranje's finances; Providing rules and regulations on the civil, economic, cultural and geographic life of the people of Oranje under Constancian law and custom. The Local Authority provides guidance and support to the Constancians in the pursuit of their rights and responsibilities, and any further responsibility can be delegated to the Local Authority by the Mesazōn.

The Strategos is accountable to the Mesazōn by providing monthly reports on any and all Theme of Oranje matters. The Strategos may be summoned by the Synklētos to deliver such and other reports, and accept any rules, regulations, guides on the management of the Theme of Oranje that the Synklētos may have. The Strategos, through the Local Authority, shall provide the communication between the Basileus and the Central government, and the the people of Oranje.


The Constancian Armed Forces have the responsibility of defending the Thema Oranjēsiōn and preserving its territorial integrity as part of the Free and Associative Kingdom of Constancia.

Military assets currently under the control of the Strategos of the Thema Oranjēsiōn also include 3 Northman Class Corvettes, 10 AW101 helicopters, and around 100 trainers, specialists and experts from the Command, Scholai, and Service Corps of the Constancian Army. Tour of duty generally lasts two years, after which they are rotated back to mainland Eura for reassignment.

In line with tensions caused by the War of Lost Brothers, the Autokrator of Constancia secured the borders of the Thema Oranjēsiōn in Kendall Isle, and unified the command of all military forces within under Oranje Command, and placed them on high alert. [7]

All subordinate officers appointed by the Strategos of the Thema Oranjēsiōn, and all enlisted personnel under his command and authority are obliged to obey his orders under penalty of hard labor and imprisonment as a court-martial may decide. In times of war or other declared emergency, disobedience of a direct order shall be punished by death.

All residents of the Thema Oranjēsiōn aged 21 years to 50 years shall be obliged to render at least 31 cumulative days service in the Home Guard of the Thema Oranjēsiōn as the Strategos of the Thema Oranjēsiōn may provide.

In 1662 the Raspur Pact began the devşirme recruitment campaign amongst the Black Traveller community, initially recruiting a regiment of 1,200 travellers for the Home Guard and assigned by the Free Associative Kingdom to the Apollonian Theatre Command under Shirerithian operational control.
