The Empire of the Alexandrians is a geo-fictional interactive simulation based in the fascinating world of Iceria. Alexandria's characteristics are inspired by many real life cultures and countries in planet Earth like France and Spain, but also includes the development of authentic Alexandrian customs and traditions. It was originally founded as the Kingdom of the Union of Madland on May 7th, 2002. as a personal project by Emperor Edgard II to engage in conworlding and model government, partly inspired by Verduria.

As the Emperor's interests grew, Madland grew with it, opening the door for wider participation and interaction with other similar projects.
