A more in-depth look at our past through artifacts and ephemera shaped our history and continues to impact our future.
Most of the documents and artifacts are from the days when we founded our great nation. We also have a few objects from our pre-history.
Imperium Universalis - Great Seal
Imperium Universalis first came about in the early 1990s. It started as a game among a few close friends but soon leaped forward when our current king decided to take it a step further. The idea was to create a nation of polymaths. A nation where curiosity flourished and the highest goal of every citizen was to learn and grow.
Academia Homo Universalis
Academia Homo Universalis was a precursor to Academia Unixploria, but in a way, perhaps, more an idea that we should strive for. The idea, rooted in the renaissance ideal, is now continued in Project Polymath.
Academia Athletica Homo
Academia Athletica Homo was a branch of physical education in our humble beginnings. We encouraged people to exercise not just to be fit but to become polymaths in the true sense of the word, a jack of all trades with a sound mind in a sound body. This logo was drafted on a desktop computer in 1992 and printed years later. Homo Duplicus was the ideal man all citizens should strive for.
Samlarlyckan (Collector's Joy) was a precursor to what would later become Collectioseum. It started as the king's pet project. He has always been an avid collector and began to write about his collections on a blog in 1996. The blog grew, and so did the king's ambitions for creating a national museum.
The first proposal of a logotype would later become a much-used symbol for Samlarlyckan's department of classification.
A label to be used on the various artifacts in Samlarlyckan's collections. The specific Slucla-number on each object was assigned according to a classification system still used at Collectioseum today.
Samlarlyckan was, as mentioned, the precursor to Collectioseum. In Imperium Universalis's days, we had highflying plans to fund expeditions to collect new artifacts for our national museum. Some expeditions indeed successful, and a few of the items collected back then are part of our heritage collection at Collectioseum.
Another proposal for a logotype to be used for Samlarlyckan's department for classification.
When our king toiled with the idea of founding a new nation, he took great pride in financial control. He found inspiration from the national central banks worldwide and wanted to create something similar regarding Imperium Universalis. The idea resulted in a new currency called Vitten, the same currency we use in the Kingdom of Unixploria today.
Kaendarium Homo Duplicus
Another design of a logo for planning and organizing your personal life.
A logo used for all official documents concerning state calendars.
A logo used on all documents regarding planning and organizing the government's daily work.
Vita Realistica was a project that encouraged Imperium Universalis citizens to take better care of their bodies, emphasizing nutritional advice. The state even offered free information pamphlets for the most common diseases (e.g., Diabetes, Asthma, etc.) and ways to improve self-management.
Draft of a Flag
A rough sketch of the flag that would later become the national flag of Imperium Universalis.

Mobile Research Center
Proposed design to be used on all official mobile science labs.
A sketch of a logotype that was intended to be used on all official cars from the scientific departments of Imperium Universalis.
The logo was originally intended to be used on all official snowmobiles.
A symbol to be used on all-terrain vehicles owned and operated by the scientific institutions of Imperium Universalis.
A rough draft of a bookplate to be used by Biblioteca Universalis. It was meant to be printed and used in all the books of our national library. Biblioteca Universalis was the precursor to Biblioteca Unixploria.
Library - The Key to Knowledge
A sketch of a poster that was purged from any official use.
Thoughts on Life
Some initial notes on what mentality we should pursue to become more whole as individuals. These scribbled words are the earliest declaration of what would later become the essence of the Unixplorian mentality.
Universalistiska Idealister Utopia
The first political party of Imperium Universalis was named Universalistiska Idealister Utopia (Universal Idealist's Utopia). The party attained nine votes in a macronational, municipal election held in 1994, far more than we anticipated.
Imperium Universalis - Hierarchical Structure
A hierarchical structure of Imperium Universalis.
An emblem that was used on all pamphlets and brochures from the department of healthcare.
Logo of an ambitious project initiated by Samlarlyckan, the precursor to Collectioseum. The goal was to create an online database of the film collection and writing genre overviews intended for a wider audience. The project is still ongoing yet somewhat revised.
