Site: The Heavenly City
Location: Tian'an, Han, Indrala
Applicable criteria for assessment: (i.), (ii.), (iii.), (iv.).
Reference: https://particracy.wikia.com/wiki/Heavenly_City

Background: Seat of supreme power for over fourteen centuries (3000-present), the Heavenly City in Tian'an, with its landscaped gardens and hundreds of buildings (whose nearly 20,000 rooms contain furniture and works of art), constitutes a priceless testimony to Indralan civilization during the many dynasties which have ruled over the Indralan island and colonial empire. The Palace contains an important library and testifies to the foundation of the dynastic history of Indrala. The remarkable architectural edifice of the Heavenly City's many halls offers important historical testimony to the history of Indrala and to the cultural traditions of its people.

The Heavenly City, located in the geographic centre of Tian'an is the supreme model in the development of ancient Indralan palaces, providing insight into the social development of Indrala, especially the ritual and court culture. The layout and spatial arrangement inherits and embodies the traditional characteristic of urban planning and palace construction in ancient Indrala, featuring a central axis, symmetrical design and layout of outer court at the front and inner court at the rear and the inclusion of additional landscaped courtyards. As the exemplar of ancient architectural hierarchy, construction techniques and architectural art, it influenced official buildings of the subsequent dynasties of Indrala over a span of three thousand centuries. Meanwhile, more than a million precious imperial collections, articles used by the royal family and a large number of archival materials on ancient engineering techniques, including written records, drawings and models, provide the Heavenly City distinct prominence among heritage sites in terms of significance.

Site: Domus Consularis
Location: Auroria, Marestella, Selucia
Applicable criteria for assessment: (i.), (ii.), (iv.).
Reference: https://particracy.wikia.com/wiki/Domus_Consularis

Background: Built over the ancient site of the residence of the Imperator of the Selucian League, the Domus Consularis (Selucian for "Consular House") is the headquarters of the Selucian executive and as such serves as the center of power in Selucia. Most recently renovated in 4320, the Domus Consularis preserves Selucian art and architecture dating back to the Renascentia if not further back. The most distinguishing feature of the Domus is its essentially unchanging nature, in spite of numerous renovations or even wholesale reconstructions over the millennia. The current architectural plan of the Domus dates back to the 15th century, with only minor and non-essential modifications to account for modern amenities. Even after renovation architects strove to locate surprisingly well preserved construction materials and decorative elements. In order to preserve its timeless appearance there are no time-measuring devices to be found within the Domus Consularis.

Site: Empyrean Temple
Location: Empyrean Temple City
Applicable criteria for assessment: (i.), (ii.), (iii.), (iv.).
Reference: https://particracy.wikia.com/wiki/Empyrean_Temple

Background: The Empyrean Temple is the official headquarters of the Arch-Patriarch of the Aurorian Patriarchal Church, over which it exercises full sovereignty as the Empyrean Temple City. The Temple was built in the 29th century to celebrate Selucia's liberation from the Terran Patriarchal crusaders and to serve as the headquarters of what was then Selucia's national Church, the Selucian Patriarchal Church. The Temple is built in a Selucian Triumphalist style in the form of a Kalopian Cross with a dome inspired by circular Selucian Pagan temples and as such it is considered a prime example of Selucian Triumphalism, an architectural style characterized by grandiose and powerful aesthetic and typical of Selucian buildings of the Selucian Imperium era, aiming to present the triumph of both the nation and the Church over its enemies. As one of the holiest sites in Aurorian Hosianism the Temple is a famous site of pilgrimage and can accommodate tens of thousands of visitors.

Site: Republic of Fortland
Location: Odufart Sea, off the coast of Noumonde
Applicable criteria for assessment: (i.), (ii.), (iii.), (iv.).
Reference: Fortland News

Background: "Fortland", originally known as the "Barreau Tower" after the name of its architect, was constructed as an anti-aircraft gun platform by Rildanor during the 2570s, in order to protect shipping lanes between Noumonde, its newly-acquired colony, and south Seleya.

Governments have long since abandoned the installation. Technically, it was built illegally as it falls outside of Noumonde's territorial waters, and under international law is considered "terra nullius" or "nobody's land".

More recently, Fortland has been commandeered by Geoffrey Briggs, a retired major in the Luthori army and a noted eccentric. Briggs has set himself up there along with his wife, Shirley. His son, Henry, and daughter, Elizabeth, occasionally stay him with as well.

On 14th April 4459, Briggs released a "Declaration of Statehood", declaring the structure to be its own country, to be known as the "Republic of Fortland", of which he is President. The Declaration calls on other nations to formally recognise Fortland and establish diplomatic relations, and also calls on the World Congress to admit Fortland as a member.

As well as being Terra's newest nation and a country with great aspirations for the future which personifies the ideals of liberty, justice and equality, Fortland is also a splendid work of art from a purely architectural point of view, as well as a unique historical artifact, being one of only four installations of its type and of its era anywhere in Terra. Artists regularly come to draw it, photographers to photograph it and historians to study it. In addition to this, Fortland hosts small permanent and temporary art exhibitions, making it a much-loved destination for art luvvies.

Site: Palace of Villareale
Location: Villareale, Sarregna, Istalia
Applicable criteria for assessment: (i.), (iv.)
Reference: https://particracy.wikia.com/wiki/Palace_of_Villareale

Background: The Palace of Villareale is a former royal residence built for the Selucio-Nicoman kings of the Kingdom of Istalia. It is one of the largest palaces erected in Majatra during the 18th century and is the largest royal residence in the world in volume with over 2 million m³ and covering an area of about 235,000 m². The Palace was commissioned by the second King of Istalia Arturo Gabriele I who also baptized a town near Eristano, Villareale, to become the administrative capital for the Kingdom which fulcrum was the Palace itself. The Istalian court remained in the Palace until 1959 when the island of Alaria was conquered by the Emirate of Quanzar, which already controlled the Sarrentina Peninsula. Under the Quanzarian Emirate it was ansformed it into an army barrack but when finally was established the first Istalian Republic, the new state decided to destinate the Palace as Museum of the Istalian Kingdom. Considered a masterpiece of the baroque architecture, however heavily influenced by the Neoselucian style, it is one of the most visited Istalian sites.
