The Dinaric Empire (Aetolian: Δειναρικές Αυτοκρατορία, Deinarikés Aftokratoría; Varkan: დინარის იმპერია, dinaris imperia; Breislandic: Dinarischen Reich) comprised the colonies, protectorates, mandates and other territories ruled or administered by the United Kingdom of the Dinarides and its predecessor states.

The Dinaric Empire originated during the Age of Discovery after the voyages of Pavlos Vamvakinou, it comprised territories and colonies of the Dinaric monarch in Illypnia, Kaftia, Lurandia, Empodia, Fosia, as well as a number of Neptic, Kendriyan and Shendan oceans archipelagos including; and it lasted until the mid 18th century Varkan Restoration War, which provoked the collapse of the United Kingdom of the Dinarides. Most of the Dinaric colonies passed on to its successor state, the Kingdom of Aetolia. Following the instability of the late 18th century, Aetolia granted many of its colonies independence, but retained several territories nonetheless until the early 20th century. Its last colonies were granted independence or abandoned during the Decolonization Age finishing in 1954.

Zong allowed Dinaric ships to sail all the way to Zong in early 16th century, at the condition they would only reach the island then known as Laukiu (流求), which the Dinaric sailors called Omorpho ("beautiful island" in Aetolian). The Dinaric Company for the Orient established Zalongo (in modern-day Kimsa) as their headquarters in 1572. Five trading posts were established on the island's coast between 1574 and 1584. U/C

The Dinaric Empire left a huge cultural, urban and architectural legacy in Adonia. Hundreds of towns and cities in the Mesogean Sea were founded during the Dinaric rule. The tangible heritage includes universities, forts, cities, temenos, schools, hospitals, arenas, government buildings and colonial residences, many of which still stand today. A number of present-day roads, canals, ports or bridges sit where Dinaric engineers built them centuries ago.

The Aetolian language and the Armazist faith were brought to Empodia, parts of Lurandia, Kaftia and Fosia, by Dinaric colonization which began in the 15th century. It also played a crucial part in sustaining Armazism as the main religion in the Dinarides when it was under extreme pressure from neighboring Abrahamic religions.

In concert with the Volisan and Zong empires, the Dinaric Empire laid the foundations of a truly global trade by opening up the great trans-oceanic trade routes and the exploration of unknown territories and oceans. The Dinaric dinar became Adonia's first global currency. One of the features of this trade was the exchange of a great array of domesticated plants and animals between the Old World and the New and vice versa. Some that were introduced to Luranempodia included wine, wheat, barley, apples, cattle, sheep, pigs, horses, donkeys, and many others. The Old World received from Luranempodia such things as maize, potatoes, chili peppers, tomatoes, tobacco, beans, squash, cacao (chocolate), vanilla, avocados, pineapples, chewing gum, rubber, peanuts, cashews, pecans, blueberries, strawberries, quinoa, amaranth, chia, agave and so on. The result of these exchanges was to significantly improve the agricultural potential of not only in Luranempodia, but also that of Illypnia, Kaftia and Fosia.
