The Xaronese Imperial Calendar was the official calendar system used throughout the Holy Xaronese Empire. Created during the reign of Straxus the Great, the Xaronese Imperial Calendar was not put into effect until after Emperor Straxus' death on 13 Scorpion, 33 XE. The calendar was based on Xaron's 435 day year, 432 of those days were divided into 12 equal months with the last 3 days as special intercalary days which didn't belong to any month. Due to the calendar's natural limitations, other planets in the Empire used their own calendars for day-to-day business but were forced to work around the imperial calendar when Empire-wide matters were involved.
