The Eggman Empire is a technology-based empire ruled by Dr. Eggman that seeks to lay claim to the entire planet. It has claimed parts of the world through the might of its Egg Army and Badnik Horde, as well as the advanced technology created by Eggman and his underlings. However, the empire faces continued opposition in the form of nations such as the Kingdom of Acorn, Avalon, and the United Federation, as well as in small groups of Freedom Fighters, the most notable being led by Sonic the Hedgehog.
The empire saw its beginnings on the altered world after Eggman worked his way into the confidence of King Acorn of Westside Island. Having gained the trust of the king, Eggman betrayed him and royal wizard Walter Naugus and banished both of them to the Special Zone. Seizing the city of Mobotropolis, he forced many of its denizens to flee to Knothole Village in the Wood Zone, and gained the usage of Dr. Charles the Hedgehog's Roboticizer machine. However, the Knothole Freedom Fighters eventually rose and challenged Eggman's rule, and succeeded in rescuing their king and reclaiming their home city. From that point on, they continued to oppose Eggman's attempts to spread his dominion across the planet. (FCBD: #8, StH: #259)

Armed Forces & Enforcers
- Badnik Horde: Various forces of Badnik that occupy various regions of the world to supplement Eggman's Mobian lieutenants. A special type of Robot called a Horde Commander is sent to back up and control hordes of robots, Silver Sonic is one such type of Horde Commander. Robots such as Tails Doll may also fall into the category of Badnik Horde robots.
- Metal Series: Highly advanced Badniks made to resemble Mobians, most notably those who have acted in opposition to the empire. The most prominent of these robots is Metal Sonic.
- E-100 Series: An elite force of non-mass produced fighting robots developed by Eggman. A number of units have been destroyed and E-123 Omega is known to have defected, but some remain in service. Notably, E-106 Eta serves as a Horde Commander in the region of Spagonia.
- E-1000 Series: A line of robots that saw multiple productions of the same model, apparently inspired by the E-100 robots.
- Egg Army: Cyborgs who serve as Dr. Eggman's sentient enforcers across the world, known collectively as Egg Soldiers. The Egg Army appears to be made up largely of a Mobian membership, with soldiers paying allegiance to their Egg Boss as well as Dr. Eggman.
- Mercenaries: The empire occasionally hires Mobian criminals to accomplish tasks that it's operatives are unable to perform due to crises or other factors. Notable mercenaries on the empire's payroll are the Hooligans, a trio led by Nack the Weasel.
While the Eggman Empire hasn't claimed as much ground as it did in the Pre-SGW timeline, it has still managed to build bases within certain territories that give the empire a degree of control in some parts of the world. However, it's influence is usually prevented from spreading anymore thanks to the efforts of the area's local Freedom Fighters and G.U.N. forces.
- The name "Eggman Empire" comes from the Sega games.
