The Eleven-Day Empire was the heartland of Faction Paradox and a non-world. (PROSE: The Book of the War)

Consequent to the British changeover from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian one, eleven days — 2 September through 14 September 1752 — were "lost". These days, as experienced in London, were purchased by the Faction Paradox. (PROSE: Interference - Book One)

Six hundred and thirty Mothers and Fathers of the Faction Paradox sat in the House of Commons found in the Empire's version of London. The speaker's chair was empty, waiting for the return of Grandfather Paradox. (PROSE: Interference - Book One) Godfather Morlock sat in the chair on occasion to speak to the members of the Faction. (PROSE: A Story of the Peace)

Locations Edit

The Terry-Thomas Quarter resembled 1950s London and the Billy Bragg Quarter resembled 1980s London. (PROSE: All the Fun of the Fear)

The Army and Navy Club in St. James' Square was used as a billet for Little Brothers and Sisters in training. (PROSE: Of the City of the Saved...)

History Edit

The time where the Empire existed was "purchased" through the Gregorian Compact. (PROSE: The Book of the War)

The Unkindnesses resided in the Empire before the Faction moved in. (AUDIO: The Eleven Day Empire)

Members of the Faction could buy their own private seconds and minutes within the empire to reside in. (AUDIO: The Shadow Play)

At the behest of the War King, Lolita destroyed the empire and consumed it into her internal dimensions. (AUDIO: The Shadow Play)

Behind the scenes Edit

  • The Eleven-Day Empire: A Tour of the Capital, a short piece written by Mags L. Halliday for the Faction Paradox website,[1] explored the Empire in the context of the annual "Feast of Fools" pageant.
  • The Eleven Day Empire is mentioned several times in the popular SCP-3999 of the collaborative SCP Foundation universe. This story features its own author (classified as "SCP-3999") as a reality-bending being which the fictional Foundation tries to contain as a metaphor for the author's addiction to the SCP community; the references to the Empire have to do with the author's sense of lost time.[2]
