Dynan Island, Ashoka A order know as the Imperial Knights of Dharmapala was founded on September 20th 2010 by F. Andersson, the current Tribune of Foreign Affairs and High Elder of the Order. It is a semi-militant Buddhist order and their main purpose is to defend the Exilarchy of Ashoka and its leaders against both internal and external threats as well as protect the ideas and philosophies of the Dharma. Soon after its founding the order was criticized by the People's Democratic Republic of Sandus, a fellow Buddhist nation, in a open article claiming the the order was chaotic and aggressive. Tribune Andersson contacted the ruler of Sandus demanding a apology and the removal of the article. This was soon done. "We can not allow the reputation of our order, and thereby our nation, to be twisted like this," explains Tribune Andersson to the Lion's Roar Weekly.
