History of Polarian Empire and it's magnificent cavalry
Ah my little but mighty cavalry that is the second most experienced and highly trained in the whole world only beaten by the Roman horses. I, Manfred Tilius have breed to most valuable horses in the Poland and the best hardy horsemen to ride those horses. Due to our extensive research on cavalry warfare and the importance of cavalry tactics in a battle we have managed to rise trough the ranks. The Polarians are not just some minor people living between two big kingdoms without any idea of what is going on but indeed Polarians are better than that because there are so many behind our cavalry that we are just better than those others.
All our horses are steeds and even though some say that steeds are unpredictable, i myself prefer steeds as they are glorious and magnificent just like me, Manfred Tilius, Dominar of Polarian Empire. Not only do our horses look good but so does our riders. They are wearing the the finest clothes there and their cloaks are made out of leopard hide brought from Egypt. Of course much money is poured in to them and to raise the quantity of the horsemen but still the same amount of gold is spend to make sure that their quality matches the numbers.
Our horsemen have even gained experience while they killed off rebels in Danzig after some pagan army wandered inside our borders. No Polarian men or women were killed but all of the pagans were annihilated. Once again the Polarians have proved to be superior to those of lesser race. We Polarians have existed for thousands of years on this planet and we shall exists for millions more. Our race and people are destined for greatness but there are so many things to consider that perhaps our time to rise has not come yet but perhaps soon we shall rise from our homelands to greatness. Like our ancestors before us came from the stars we shall reach out to them to fulfill their wish and the destiny that they have given to us. Polaria shall be the center of the world where cultures meet to trade, socialize and to breed. All people of the world will become known as Polarians but still there are many cultures that must be cherished, just like the Gods have wished it.

Manfred walked trough the corridors of his castle to meet with his advisors and court members. He wanted to disscuss about the future of the Polarian Empire with them to see if they saw things as he did. He wanted to know what they thought about Danes, Bavarians and Mordor. As well as the Croats that were their southern border friends.
When he arrived at his throne room he was greeted with a thunderous applauses due to his great success in defeating the pagans in Danzig. It was only been a minor conflict but there had been none since the days that the old kings gave up Polaria to the Danes. He bowed and walked to his chair and before sitting down he said. "Welcome to this meeting. I shall be brief and bold in my words so we can all go back to our little hobbies and doings." He sat down and so did the others. "So what do you think about our current situation?" he asked. Before any one could answer a messanger rushed in to the room yelling. "They have come, they have come my lord" Manfred stood up and ran to the boy. "Where are they?" he asked. "Just behind the apple tree on the north east courtyard" the boy said. "Take care of his boy and no one shall interrupt me in atleast two hours." Manfred said and walked out of the room.

All part of the Caliphates sly plan to build up R'lyeh's rivals for The Great Russian Landgrab...They are wearing the the finest clothes there and their cloaks are made out of leopard hide brought from Egypt.
Speaking of which, what evil pop culture reference would the peanuts wish I use for Russia next mupdate?

"Under capitalism, man exploits man. Under communism, it's just the opposite."
-John Kenneth Galbraith
Many Turkmen have been loyal subjects of the Caliphate for quite some time, serving as spies or soldiers in the mamluk corps and holding Bukara in the Caliphas name. After the inevitable end of the Greeks the Calipha has entertained the idea of granting them Anatolia to lord over as reward...But you aren't Turkik either!
Some men hold dogs as pets. A dog taken into a family sometimes believes it is in fact a man, that does not make it so. When the master is gone his dog may consider himself the true ruler of the house, it does not make it so. And when a dog bites his master there is only one recourse for him...

The main point is, Rome is eternal and not subject to the whim and fashion of overdressed Greeks. Only once they acknowledge their own place in history can they truly be said to understand the lesson that was the Empire.
Let us be clear: There is an ethnicity, 'Hellene', living in geographical Greece, and an ethnicity (which is also a language), 'Latin', living in geographical Italy. Nobody claims that Hellenes are Latins; that would be absurd. However, there is additionally a citizenship, a set of rights and duties, which in the Greek is referred to as 'Romaioi'. To be a Roman citizen requires no claim of blood, although descent is the most common way to acquire it. Citizenship may be extended to anyone found worthy of the honour, whatever his ethnicity, religion, or station. So: Neither Hellenes nor Lombards are Latins; however, most Hellenes (not all, in that a few are unfortunately under infidel rule) are Romaioi, while very few Lombards are Romaioi. Further, the legitimate Senate of Rome currently has its seat in Constantinople. The existence of Roman citizenship cannot be expunged while the state survives in any form; accidents of geography are quite irrelevant. If the infidel were tomorrow to lay siege to Constantinople, and God were to see fit to punish the Roman people for its sins and cause them to be driven forth, and they sailed south to the very tip of Africa and there established a city, then they would still be the true Rome, and they would still be citizens, provided that their God-given rights and duties were not changed. Rome is not a place; it is an idea and an ideal. The saying, "An Emperor who does not hold Rome is only another rebel," does not refute this; it describes the realities of secular power within the Roman state, which has nothing to do with who is a Roman citizen.
As for 'Sublime Porte', you'll observe that the term is French and not Turkic. It refers, in my usage and not the hypothetical-anachronistic usage of some future that might have been possible in 1066 but has now been definitely averted, to Constantinople's position as the gate between Europe and Asia, and also the gate between the Mediterranean and Black Seas.
