Attack Potency: Wall level to Small Building level (Able to cull adolescent trolls), potentially Large Mountain level to Island level (Posed a threat to Karkat during Pesterquest and forced him to flee.

Power Source: Psionic Energy and The Green Sun.

Industrial Capacity: The Alternian Empire is incredibly scientifically advanced, to the point that even young teenagers in their society can build functioning fighting robots and build functioning prosthetics. However, conquest is its main focus. It is perpetually at war with someone, somewhere, and is always attempting to expand. They utilize a vast amount of organic technology, powered by psionics. Even kids in their society view Earth as technological backwards. They're more than happy to weaponize their own people for scientific advancements and seek simply to conquer all. Doc Scratch, the secret puppet leader behind the Empire, keeps the best technology to himself to ensure his master's grip on Alternia and foothold within their universe is uncontested, and yet Alternia continues to constantly advance.

Military Prowess: At least billions, if not trillions.

Notable Individuals: Karkat Vantas, Xefros Tritoh, Aradia Megido, The Handmaid, Tavros Nitram, Skylla Koriga, Sollux Captor, Cirava Hermod, Nepeta Leijon, Kanaya Maryam, Terezi Pyrope, Vriska Serket, Equius Zahhak, Amisia Erdehn, Zebruh Codakk, Gamzee Makara, Feferi Peixes, The Condesce

Weaknesses: Troll Society functions under a rigid caste system that places Rusts at the bottom and Fuschias on top. Trolls below teal are treated less like people and more like disposable tools, no more important than a gun. This has led to at least three rebellions, however, all three of which were only allowed to happen because Doc Scratch needed them too to further his agenda. This leads into its biggest failings. Alternia is entirely expendable. Her Imperious Condescension views as nothing more than a tool to stroke her ego. Doc Scratch views it as little more than a tool to further his master's will. Lord English views it merely as another step in his grand plan to obliterate all of existence. The Alternian Empire is little more than a disposable tool of death and destruction and its leaders are more than happy to abandon it if it furthers their own goals.
