The Empire of the Alexandrians is a geofictional interactive simulation, also known as a micronation, based in the fascinating world of Micras. Alexandria's characteristics are inspired by many real life cultures and countries in planet Earth like France, Spain, Germany, among others, but also includes the development of authentic Alexandrian customs and traditions.

Alexandria was originally founded as the Kingdom of the Union of Madland on May 7th, 2002. It was originally a personal project by Emperor Edgard II to engage in conworlding and model government, partly inspired by Verduria and his participation in Model UN during high school. Madland first started as a simple website and a small conworlding project in which a few of the Emperor's friends participated on and off.

In November 4, 2004, Madland changed its name to Alexandria. The Empire of the Alexandrians is among the oldest micronations in existence on Micras today.
