The Sophian Empire originated as a loose alliance of trading city states, however it soon became home of some of the first known philosophers, most famously, Socrates. Soon after the death of Socrates, Alexander, student of Aristotle and ruler of a small Sophist state, saw the potential of philosophy. He managed, through use of clever argument, to have himself named ruler of the Sophian Empire. From there he sent out a massive number of philosophers to foreign states, converting cities to his cause one by one. Although, not profoundly skilled at philosophy himself, he managed to unite and organize philosophers on a never before seen scale. The Sophist Empire expanded to conquer almost the entire continent, aside from a few smaller empires, most notably the Minervan and Itzamnian Empires, to the point where the continent was named after them. Records indicate that they may have even had successful campaigns as far north as Temenos. However on Alexander’s death, he declared he would leave his kingdom to the wisest. The empire fell into division between the four major philosophies as they argued which was, in fact, the wisest of the four.
