The Xaius Empire is (or was) a major interstellar nation located in the Large Magellanic Cloud.
Little is known about the Xaius Empire's early history. What is known is that the Empire eventually grew into a major power in the Large Magellanic Cloud.
The Xaius Empire's later history was fraught with conflict, including border skirmishes with the Qachari Alliance and the the Great War against the planets and systems that would make up the Mayet Confederacy.
Decades after the Great War ended, word of Project Antoch reached the ears of the general population. In response, many prisoners, refugees and dispossessed imperial citizens secretly journeyed to Confederacy space hoping to find a better life in the Milky Way.
The Xaius Empire was described as an autocratic monarchy ruled by an Emperor or Empress.
